"CHARACTER GENERATION: FRP characters, like real people, do not spring into the world as adults with a few basic attributes. They mature in particular environments, acquire personal histories, and have distinct personalities. The character generation system pays lavish attention to such details. Thirty two (32) character attributes are covered. SKILLS: Harnmaster is a skill based system. More than 120 skills are used. Some skills are universal, some depend on social background, some are common, and some are rare. Skills are derived from character attributes to reflect natural ability. There are no character classes or other arbitrary limits on the skills characters may possess. The system opens up new dimensions in role playing; characters may practice occupations such as Herald, Mercantyler, Pilot, and Weaponcrafter. COMBAT: The Harnmaster combat system is dependant on weapon skills and battle experience, and provides players with many tactical options to control their combat destiny. Best of all, after two or three uses, players will find that the system runs quickly and smoothly, without burdensome paperwork. RELIGION: The religious system operates on the Harnic pantheon of ten major deities. Rules for becoming a priest are given, and the system also covers the accumulation of piety for lay adherents and divine miracles. MAGIC: The six convocations of the Shek-Pvar are described. The rules explain how a character may apprentice in one of these brotherhoods of the "Guild of Arcane Lore" and, with talent and luck, become a powerful sorcerer. A selection of spells is given, but the system encourages sorcerers to develop their own enchantments. BESTIARY: The bestiary deals primarily with creatures that are unique to Harn, such as the Gargun, lime and Ivashu. Statistics for bears, wolves and the like are also given. TREASURE: A detailed treasure generation system lists a profusion of enchanted artifacts..."
