Re: Mythic Battles Revised

Awesome! Let us know how things turn out. I am running a game tomorrow night, but there are no large battles projected. The last time I played with these revised rules my players really enjoyed narrating scenes of battle.

Re: Introductions and Tolerance

That makes total sense about Hope and the best spokesman being used in an Encounter, while Travel rolls are taken less seriously. Glad to hear you're trying my house rules making Tolerance the number of "influential" rolls allowed. I have found that it makes it a little bit harder to achieve the max...

Re: Introductions and Tolerance

The rules indicate that all results in the Introduction and Interaction phase count toward Success and failure (as Rich has pointed out).

Re: House Rule for No Quarter

What cannot happen in The One Ring is for a fully hale companion, without a Wound, to be dropped by a single blow. The enemy would have to have either the No Quarter or Savage Assault Special ability to make a second attack on the same turn and possibly kill the hero. I didn‘t understand No Quarter...

Hello James,

I am looking at Fear as an article for the HOF and I was wondering if I might work with your ideas here?

Thanks!

Re: Question About Character Progression

If I thought I could produce some footage worth watching, I might have recorded pieces of a session by now. I don't know...I dread the editing process and time it would take to upload, etc. Maybe this Monday I can record during our session and then upload it to YouTube. We'll see... As far as charac...

Re: There and Back Again (Gencon)

:) Was hoping to see a little news come out for TOR and AIME, since Gencon is the biggie. Will carry on waiting patiently :) All I can say is that The One Ring SOLD OUT of the core rules, Journeys & Maps, The Darkening of Mirkwood, Erebor, and The Adventurer's Companion I believe. There were only a...

I just updated the link here and in the original post.
