Re: What's the best new Combat task?

Well, if we wanted to powergame (and who wants to do that?!), Swift Strokes is very good because: If you hit, you've done extra damage, and hit a 2nd enemy. If you miss the next round, well, you didn't lose anything but are still ahead because of the extra damage done in the previous round (and the ...

Re: Morgul-knife question

Here's the RAW from Rivendell on Black Breath / Black Shadow: Black Breath Anyone who approaches a Nazgûl must immediately make a Corruption test with TN 10 plus the highest Attribute level among the Nazgûl, plus 1 for every Ringwraith present.

Re: Lamp of the Wood-Elves

Thanks guver.

I would also note that if you use ability #5, it will cost you a Hope to relight your lamp (in the same scene), even if you have "Lamp of the Far Traveler." The reason it costs Hope in this case because the RAW for ability #5 say so...

Re: Lamp of the Wood-Elves

Re: Redemption?

Well, it would be unusual for a Redemption story to happen for a PC, since the PCs are supposed to be heroic in the first place. If someone wants to play a game with a dark hero, they are welcome to, but the game wasn't designed with that in mind. If you want to come up with some rules for that, we ...

It doesn't affect you; you're not a mortal.
