Re: Tell me about your Magic Items!

The Warg Leader and the Orc Guard should both prove challenging, especially if you give them the option of surprise and/or an ambush from good terrain. The Goblin Archer may not be too much of a fight, but you can always add one or two. A devastating opening volley can do wonders in changing the sit...

Re: Do you use the Tale of Years/the Darkening of Mirkwood?

BTW, there are several threads that address the issue of which adventures to run in which order, should you decide to continue. Here's one of them:

Re: Tell me about your Magic Items!

You ask an excellent question and it's that age-old RPG dilemma about challenging your players and yet, writing a balanced scenario. Depending on how you adjudicate the battle they should be able to handle that, as well as the subsequent fight against the Great Spider, just as long as they have a ch...

Re: Tell me about your Magic Items!

That should work well for you, actually. Great Spiders are chilling foes and can rattle your players. On your other post you asked about The Darkening of Mirkwood . That's one of my favorites of their books so far, and I love the scene from The Staff of the Roadwarden when they meet Tauler, the Hunt...

Re: Tell me about your Magic Items!

Thank you.

I really like their chapter on Concerning Dragons, it's very evocative.

I'm considering a couple of 'em - Kibiluzn, The Silver Shadow, or Cûtoel, a Fire-drake of the line of Ádfyr.

Have you decided to introduce any of the dragons into your game?

Re: Tell me about your Magic Items!

In addition to Tim's hoard, you've also added some cool items Majestic. I especially like your choice of names, they're very atmospheric and fitting. :)

Re: Tell me about your Magic Items!

*Doing quick research and refresh on source* ... I might give the Dragon Helm Dwarf-Wrought instead of Fireproof, since it is made by the famous Telechar and from Nogrod, not from Belegost Or is it described as Fireproof in the original source? :geek: What would you do with the spent xp if they wan...

Re: Tell me about your Magic Items!

Thank you!

The Dragon-helm is actually from The Silmarillion and the Narn i Chîn Húrin and I included it as an example of how I like to tweak some of those stories.

Yes, the flask is a Wondrous Artefact but I added the value in case someone wanted to trade or sell it. Just in case. :)

Re: Pre-order the Mirkwood Campaign now!

These previews look great Jon and I love that you've added the Table of Contents and some very descriptive glimpses at what we'll discover within. :)

Re: Tell me about your Magic Items!

You've shared some great examples from your Treasure Index. Here are several from mine. Maleithel (Golden Well) This Sindarin golden flask of quart size is stoppered by a silver cork, bears the Elvish rune for “water”, and is packed in pine wood shavings. Once per day when you replace the stopper, t...
