Re: The Twice-baked Honey Cake conundrum

I would go for a simpler, less granular solution
During this travel you eat those wonderful cakes made by Beorn: everybody takes one bonus dice for the travel.

Re: Defense of Dale at the Quays

Another thing worth of considering is that, in pre-modern times, a lot of security wasn't exclusively handled by the "city guards" (when those existed). Common citizen handled most of the security by themselves: foreigners stick like a sore thumb in a city of, say, 5'000 peoples, and most citizens w...

Re: Out now in PDF: Death on the Reik – The Enemy Within Volume 2

The first three chapters of TEW campaign are the best.
SIRIK is problematic, at best; EiF is, well, a mess.

Hence, I'm for Middenheim (useful for running PBtT) and then for Marienburg, one of the best supplements of the line.

Re: Quick Laughter of Dragons Update

(...) Laughter of Dragons (...) it is longer than originally anticipated, it is a campaign not just a series of unlinked adventures, and it's currently looking like it is stable at 160 pages. There are some great moments in Dale, Erebor and Lake-town, and we're all really looking forward to bringin...

Sounds like TN16 at least! My vote is that you can spend hope from the Fellowship Pool.
Merry Christmas.
Mission accomplished: clearly it was Elven magic that put the ambusher in a deep slumber.
Sadly the Elven spell expired at 5 AM :roll:

Re: Which published campaign have you had the most fun running?

The Darkening of Mirkwood. It's an highly dramatic and mature campaign, with a lot of echoes from the sagas and from the Arthurian poems. Mind you, I'm playing it with "homogeneous" fellowships (all Bardings; another one all Dwares; another composed of Heroes from the Vales of the Anduin), and I thi...

Re: Tell me about your Magic Items!

Back to magic items... How do you guys flavour the unlocking of latent magical qualities in your game? A tough one for me is mithril armour. You always have to start out with another quality as the first one, as mithril requires cunning make or ancient cunning make. Isn't mithril light in itself to...

Re: "Magical Result" for the Battle skill

Thank you all for your suggestions. Conflicting schedules forced us to postpone the session till now, but that evening we are finally giving battle. Most of you suggested environmental effects: mist, rain, clouds parting, etc. I agree that these are good effects. What I have to do is choosing an eff...
