Re: The Istari

One of the Cultural Heirlooms should definitely be Wizard's Staff (unless you have a better idea for it). Ecellent idea, I've already started to write it down but I need some documentation first (mainly regarding how Gandalf uses it in the books). The only problem is, since every Culture has 3 Heir...

Re: The Istari

If we continue to look at J.R.R. Tolkien's essay "The Istari" as an inspiration then I would say that the Istari should be broken down into various Schools or Disciplines within the Order, each organized under the five chiefs: Curumo (Curunír; Saruman the White); the Ithryn Luin or 'Blue Wizards': M...

Re: What Culture of Men is the best for the Scholar/Magician?

Men of Minas Tirith have access to the most raw knowledge and learning, and so would seem to be ideal.

[Does] anyone know when/if this will be released as a PDF only on DriveThurRPG?
If the other books for TOR are available as stand-alone PDFs then I expect it will also be true of Bree.

Re: Herbalism Kit?

The Herbalism Kit is not needed to make a Medicine roll. Having an Herbalism Kit means that you can process herbs correctly and easily, making a simple Wisdom roll to do so. If you are proficient in using the Herbalism Kit, then you get to add your proficiency bonus to said roll. I agree, though I ...

Re: The Istari

Tolkien himself, at one point, suggested that there were significantly more than a handful of Istari in Middle-earth. The reference is in his essay "The Istari" published in Unfinished Tales : Of this Order [of the Istari] the number is unknown; but of those that came to the North of Middle-earth, w...

Re: Herbalism Kit?

Herb-lore is a Speciality, granted by a couple of different Backgrounds. Specialities can be used to earn Inspiration, allow an automatic success for routine things, and grant you a Proficiency Bonus or Advantage when you need to make an attribute check involving the Speciality. Yes, so the appropr...

Re: Herbalism Kit?

Well, for one, Herb-Lore isn't a skill. It's available as a specialty on the Lure of the Wild and Magician backgrounds, but that's an extremely niche item that very few characters would be able to use. Maybe make it a Tool Proficiency that can be chosen? I reasoned that Herb-lore could be treated a...

Re: Herbalism Kit?

Well, can we learn anything from the Healer's Kit (5 gp in D&D 5e vs. 5s in AiMe)? Here is the description: Healer’s Kit. This kit is a leather pouch containing bandages, salves, and splints. The kit has ten uses. As an action, you can expend one use of the kit to stabilize a creature that has 0 hit...

I believe that in Heart of the Wild it says that the Leofrings maintain a ford point which is south of the Gladden Fields, but beyond that no other fords are noted.
Thanks! I missed that. Has anyone written up the Leofrings as an Heroic Culture? Perhaps as a variant of the Rohirrim?
