Re: Heroes of Magnamund and playable villains

I feel you would have to do a fair amount of work to convert a "monster" from either of the bestiaries into a character that can level up like playable characters can. The archetypes in Heroes of Magnamund will help you out here. You(/the narator) have to be ready to deal with problems on the fly. O...

Re: Narrator's Screen and Book of Magnakai

The GM screen was never mentioned as a backer exclusive, so I'd assume that it will be released sooner or later. Book of the Magnakai was mentioned in passing by the devs during the KS, and some of the existing books make hinting references to magnakai disciplines. However, as you mentioned, everyth...

Who is Salor?

I was reading through my copy of Heroes of Magnamund, specifically at the Sommerlund Knight of the Realm. There are references to Salor, as if he's (or she's) a god. Who is Salor, and are there any other lesser known gods? Everyone knows Kai, Ishir, and Naar, but I'm having a hard time digging up an...

Re: Alternate Combat System

I agree that you're loosing a lot by messing with such a central part of the mechanics, but if you must I'd suggest trying to find an old copy of the D20 book:

Just use the LWAG books for fluff and pictures to show your players

Re: A Gondor book?

Well we're extremely off topic. I wouldn't be opposed to standing guards or soldiers wearing full plate, but not the travelling adventurers that PC's generally are. I would have no problem with there being platemail in the game so long as it was impractical to travel in and difficult to equip in a h...

A Gondor book?

I know that we have access to Men of Minas Tirith, in the "Adventurer’s Companion" supplement. I was wondering if there was ever any talk about doing a whole Gondor Supplement? I'd particularly be interested if it included some information on Mordor.

What adventure to run for and introduction to the setting

I was thinking of running a game of LWAG for my RL group next time the normal game falls through, considering I can just throw together a group from the pre-gens that come in the box and run one of the adventures that I've got between the box set and Adventures of the Kai. I've also got the old mult...

Re: Translated Game Lines

That is saddening...

I don't suppose that there are any copies of the core book lying around the office so I can buy it from you guys and get the PDF with it?!

Re: First game

I've been running the game since the first Beta rules were release for the backers. To answer some of the implied questions: - If you have a relevant discipline, you can use it instead of the skill. - If you don't have the skill you just use the associated attribute bonus. EG If you have a cs of 18 ...
