Description Edit | History

Iron Crown Enterprises (ICE) prides itself on offering multiple systems and settings providing different gaming experiences for everyone from the experienced gamer to the newcomer. Whether you are looking for a rules set filled with modular pieces ideal for the experienced Game Master, a stable and expanding system filled with high adventure, or a simple and easy game where even a newcomer to roleplaying games can go from first opening the book to playing a game in 20 minutes or less, Iron Crown Enterprises has something for you.

ICE was incorporated in 1980 shortly after the principal founders graduated from the University of Virginia. ICE began by publishing a series of rules supplements, beginning with "Arms Law", which were intended to serve as modular add-ons to other RPG systems offering greater detail. In time these supplements were tied together to form an RPG system of their own, Rolemaster. The company enjoyed a sudden jump in status when it acquired the license to produce an official fantasy RPG based upon J. R. R. Tolkien's world of Middle-earth, which would come to be known as MERP ("Middle-earth Role Playing"). According to some interpretations, at the time of its publication ICE's Middle-earth Role Playing was the second best selling fantasy RPG after TSR's Dungeons & Dragons. ICE then added the science fiction RPGs Spacemaster and Cyberspace to its line, and, with the rise of collectible card games, the Middle-earth Collectible Card Game.

Despite losing the licence to produce Middle Earth related products, Iron Crown Enterprises continues to produce new products based on their hugely successful Rolemaster game and its high adventure counterpart HARP (High Adventure Role Playing).
