Re: Favourite Place in Middle-earth

I think in one of the Appendices it talks about a company of hobbits that went to "Norbury" and fought when Arthedain fell. So there is some precedent. Yes, that very same company of hobbit bowmen is referenced in the TOR adventure "Concerning Archers" (see Ruins of the North ). I would think the r...

Re: The PDF of the Rhovanion Region Guide is available now

I also thought for some reason that this was a companion guide to Wilderland Adventures only to read that this is for an upcoming campaign instead. Well, the region guide effectively acts as a companion for both Wilderland Adventures and The Darkening of Mirkwood campaign (whatever the AiMe version...

Re: Favourite Place in Middle-earth

My favorite place would be Evendim. We get a great look at Gondor in the books, but Arnor is in many ways still a place of mystery. Lake Evendim ( Nenuial ) was only a day's walk or so from the North Farthing, so one wonders if any hobbits occasionally tried their luck fishing there. On the other h...

Re: No crossbow in this game version

Crossbows could also be some of the "infernal machines" that the Orthanc orcs come up with. It's pretty clear they're messing around with gunpowder or something like it. Alternatively, given that the crossbow really isn't all that mechanically infernal, it might be something that Noldor invented ba...

Re: Passing to Rearward stance in the middle of a fight

2) he has to stick to melee cause he is already engaged. So to "free" him he has to wait till the foes are less than characters, so one player goes and kills the foe on him, freeing him from the engagement (oh gosh...that could take ages). Well, the Hero might also defeat any foe with which he is d...

Re: Passing to Rearward stance in the middle of a fight

I am not sure I understand? You allow moving between close combat stances *every round*, but not between them and Rearward stance, even if the number of combatants allows it, unless the hero is also not engaged at the time? I might be wrong, but the reasoning seems to be that by attempting to withd...

Re: No crossbow in this game version

I won't be happy until my Hobbit can dual-wield hand crossbows. Loading. Because of the time required to load this weapon, you can fire only one piece of ammunition from it when you use an action, bonus action, or reaction to fire it, regardless of the number of attacks you can normally make. I wou...

In any case, what's your favorite place? Blue Mountains, the Grey Havens, etc?
Since you ask, I suppose it would be Rivendell (at least if I spoke and read Sindarin). I would love to be able to visit Esgaroth, Dale, Erebor, Minas Tirith, the Grey Havens and (of course) the Shire.

Re: Name that person?

1. No, the Master of Lake-town in The Hobbit is never named. However, in TOR's Lake-town Sourcebook we learn from the Dwarf Glóin that his successor is the old captain of the guard who was the first Man that the Company of Thorin encountered in the old Esgaroth. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that the ...

Re: Favourite Place in Middle-earth

Whatever edit you made seems to have taken, so I'm not sure what your last post refers to, Jake.
