Re: Bree is available in PDF

This looks fantastic--not sure if something subtle has changed in printing, but looking very, very pretty to my eye. Also, the NPC sketches, which were funky in the PDF until just recently, so I hadn't seen, are also really good this time! Particularly like Anna Wintermoss and Matthew Mugwort. Coinc...

Re: New Region Guide Coming

Damn you're much cleverer than me. I'll note that down for next time. (Bwahahaa this is perfect misdirection - people who are aching to broadcast their opinions always assume they are the smartest guy in the room, so will be too busy with the assurance that their internal narrative is correct to no...

Re: Travelling rations

You're right--now I'm reading it again, I see what you mean. Some of the other market pool examples contain alternatives, which maybe threw me off. Your reading makes much more sense. Then I suppose we're back to the only benefit of cram really being it's longevity. I'm tempted to allow characters t...

Re: Travelling rations

I'm not really sure about my answer, but here it goes... ;) 1) I'd tie buying cram to some limited resource, like Treasure or a Fellowship Undertaking. Gathering herbs at the Long Marshes, IIRC, also grants some benefits that only last for one Adventure phase or similar. I wouldn't allow to buy cra...

Re: Travelling rations

Well, there's nothing special about cram. It's just a local form of what we used to call iron rations in D&D (and still do, for all I know). It's got no special properties except that it stores well for a long time. Purchasing cram should be no more difficult than laying in a supply of jerky or pre...

Travelling rations

Posted this on the house rules, but got 0 responses :cry: :geek:, so posting here in the hopes of a little feedback. I haven't really gamed enough to get things like balance etc. when fiddling with mechanics, so this is really what I was looking for, and maybe it didn't belong in house rules. If the...

Re: The Road Goes Ever On

Since TOR doesn't award XP for fighting in the way 5e (optionally) does, nor uses the same journey system, I'm not sure how would that work. In the few place the rules can be converted for TOR, they will appear in future TOR material. But there isn't actually all that much that is relevant to conve...

Re: The Road Goes Ever On

Jon, This looks like a great supplement. A little jelly of some rulesets in here that didn't appear in TOR's Journeys & Maps. Is there a chance we will see the rules for avoiding battle, for instance, in TOR sometime?

Well done on another release and such continuing success in both lines.

Travelling rations

I was double checking what was written up on cram, and then, out of curiosity, decided to compare all of the different rations we have so far in the various sourcebooks. Ignoring Erestor's miruvor (which players can't just choose to bring at any point), I think we have cram (LT p.12), twice-baked ho...

Re: Campaign Help Needed!

3. The adventures in Darkening of Mirkwood quickly become very "thin" (completely the opposite of #2). Those sessions are not very exciting. I never have any idea how to draw them out or make them more interesting. See #1. This is very concerning to me, because most of the adventures from Darkening...
