Re: Moria

Every time I see activity in the Moria thread I feel a burst of hope that we might get some little tiny update. Then I see that Jon isn't the last poster and I think, "Well maybe Jon posted and somebody else responded." At this point, though, I'm having a hard time being optimistic that there's an ...

Re: Motivations in Nightmares of Angmar (spoilers)

Assuming the boxout on p.15 "Killing Forgall" doesn't help? I think the nightmares and the crows are meant to be hooks. Could you tap in to character's backgrounds to supply any others? Are any of them from the Anduin Vales? Maybe they have some connection to the Hill Men. Is one a slayer seeking ve...

Re: Litteracy in Middle-Earth?

Ps. well done everybody on generating another interesting/fun discussion! I'm only worried that Lifstan never checked back in, I hope he didn't get frightened away. Perhaps he just got more than he bargained for in terms of answers!! :D

Re: Litteracy in Middle-Earth?

*Disclaimer--no links/references* Yes--I think we really need to be able to distinguish here the multiple kinds of 'literacy' being thrown about in the discussion. The point that there's a teleological stance to the way most RPGs/most of us look toward writing was a good one. More and more I feel li...

Re: Litteracy in Middle-Earth?

Wow, let's not bag on people for their spelling. No matter how lighthearted it's meant, that's like 5 separate people pointing out how the OP has misspelt words in their post to 1 person actually replying and being helpful. Nobody needs that. . . . Anyway, rant over. Lifstan , it's a good question. ...

Yes, Middle-earth dice are 12-sided, and have an Eye for '1' and a G-rune for 12......

Sorry, I've been thoroughly enjoying this thread, and couldn't help myself. I'll go back in the corner and be quiet.....
Go and think about what you've done :)

Re: Realism in Middle-earth

And, just to clarify, it's not that dice (and dice games) that are exactly like ours would "spoil my immersion", but they wouldn't contribute to it, either, in the way that something similar-but-different would. Like round doors with doorknobs in the middle do. It would be a lost opportunity to mak...
