Re: Rivendell Region Guide

Yes, most likely. They included a Morgul-knife in his write-up in the TOR version.

Re: What is the situation in Mordor when Sauron is gone?

Otaku-sempai: You provide an excellent answer, as always. You're right and Mordor opens a vast vista for LMs, despite the grim prospect of envisioning heroes attempting to survive a journey against those odds. :shock: I enjoy Michael Martinez's blogs on some of the servants of the Enemy, and here ar...

Re: Seeking Advice: Kinstrife and Dark Tidings

Good luck with that historical game! It sounds as if you have a great period to work with, and the various post-Hastings raids and risings against the Normans rarely get the attention they deserve.

My players had fun and felt very pleased with the outcome.
This is what it's all about. You describe an epic battle with all the flavor of Middle-earth.

BTW, as a historian I smile whenever I see your moniker Edric the Wild.

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. :)
