Re: Anna Wintermoss

My mental image of Anna is of a woman who is relatively young, not yet middle-aged or on the low side of it at most, though that might be my own bias.

Re: First Supplement Purchase/Upcoming Revision Questions

If all you require is a set of ready-to-play adventures set in Rhovanion that form a rough campaign then Tales from Wilderland is what you want right now. If you want a region guide for Wilderland that provides plenty of characters and adventure seeds for creating your own adventures then you need T...

Re: Converting High Elves of Rivendell

High Elves (by the narrowest definition) have dwelt in Aman and seen the light of the Two Trees. That gives them a spiritual component that is unmatched among other Elves or any other race of Middle-earth. In TOR they are presented as an Advanced Culture and have significant advantages over even the...

Re: Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur

And being very pedantic :mrgreen: , Elrond's family lived with him only after the early Third Age as the wedding of Elrond and Celebrían took place in TA 109. His children were born in TA 130 and 241. So interestingly, Elrond lived as a bachelor in Rivendell for ca. 1,800 years (mostly in the Secon...

Re: Finally getting to play this!

Our AD&D campaign has always been fairly short on players so it has not been at all unusual for our GM(s) to also run a PC. It's not ideal, and it might be better when one or more players run two PCs at a time, but if you and your players are comfortable with you having a Hero, go for it.

Re: Converting High Elves of Rivendell

This is going to be very similar to namkcor's post above. I think that adapting the rules for High-elves and Shadow from Rivendell is fairly straightforward. We can substitute Skill bonuses for the Skill ratings from The One Ring . The question is: should we cap the amount of the Skill bonus and, if...

Re: Player knowledge of adversaries

I personally do not like giving out information in any game system that is of a purely mechanical nature, like Hate score. That is something that does not translate well into in-game knowledge. I would agree with you. It's one thing to say that a given Hero knows that Wargs have aversion to fire an...

Re: Player knowledge of adversaries

Another interesting aspect of the rolls in TOR are the possibilities for great success and extraordinary success. There are some bits of folklore that you might assume more-or-less everybody knows, such as "'Every worm has his weak spot,' as my father used to say." That does not guarantee that the H...

Re: Mirkwood Campaign?

Well, the Fell Wraiths presented in Rivendell are lesser Wraiths, at least some of them doubtless victims of morgul-knives. The Lord of the Nazgûl is presented in two forms: 1) The Wraith-lord (when Unclad and Invisible); and 2) The Witch-king (as Dark Undead). Some of his powers only manifest when ...
