Re: Are you gaming against Canon and if so how?

I look forward to seeing what you have come up with OS.🙂 Here's a preview: Draupnir, Lord of Hargrod Draupnir son of Dolgthrasir, also called Draupnir Forkbeard, is the current Lord of the Dwarf-city of Hargrod. He is the grandson of the previous Lord, Baugi son of Brokkir, who against all odds sir...

Re: Are you gaming against Canon and if so how?

Edit: My take on Trolls is that they are not clever enough to deal in anything other than literal interpretation. If we take a close look at the Trolls' dialogue we might find that this is not entirely true; though if Bilbo's account is accurate, they do seem to be awfully literal-minded. But let's...

Re: Year's End Clarification

I think you've got it right. There are some undertakings that are meant to take place only during a year's-end Fellowship phase. Those are undertakings that require more than a handful of weeks to accomplish. Also, an extra undertaking is generally permitted at year's end due to its length (generall...

Re: Are you gaming against Canon and if so how?

The canon actually supports the existence of villages near the Trollshaws. In ‘Roast Mutton’ the Trolls discuss that they have devoured a village and a half since descending from the mountains. Yes. That doesn't mean that there was necessarily an actual village or three nearby, but there were at le...

Re: Getting poisoned through armour

Yeah. It really shouldn't just bypass armor. Frankly, I think the poison rules are kinda lacking. I'd much rather see some "types" of poison with some sort of side effects. For instance the Spider venom in the Hobbit made the Dwarves sleepy, so I could see them acting as Fatigued , not Wounded . By...

Re: Defense of Dale at the Quays

In the last years of the Third Age is anyone keeping watch on the portage-way at the south end of Long Lake? If it is unguarded then enemies could port boats up from the Running with little trouble, especially if soldiers were sent ahead to secure the upper portage. As Corvo points out, foreign agen...

How about a new computer program, called Google Arda?
That would be terrific, but it's a bit beyond my abilities! There is a site for an interactive map of Middle-earth. Also, there's an interactive map of Beleriand.

This is really great. Thanks for posting it!
Thanks for the feedback! My guide isn't a perfect substitute for an official one, but if you find it useful, I'll be happy. If you see anything that you think could be improved, don't hesitate to mention it.

Re: Getting poisoned through armour

Different posions would still apply their own effects, I'm just really talking about the Poison status and the fact that I don't agree with letting two poison attacks effectively cause two Wounds. I think Poison attacks should only count as one Wound and no more due to the nature of them not requir...

Re: Are you gaming against Canon and if so how?

My version of Eriador is more populated than the official version - there are hidden Dunedain communities and more towns like Bree. I am not sure if this canon or not. It's still pretty sparse, and its wilderness east of Bree, but it's not uninhabited. These communities are watched by Rangers, visi...
