Re: Hope Recovery in Fellowship phase?

I did develop a couple of Undertakings as House Rules for Rangers and High Elves that relate to this topic: New Fellowship Phase Undertaking: Visit Annúminas (Rangers of the North only) A Ranger of the North who spends a Fellowship phase to visit Annúminas on the shore of Lake Nenuial will find a de...

Re: TV series set in Middle Earth may be coming

Things are looking more promising if Sir Ian gets his way... I know that some hope for an entirely new cast if the series does not otherwise maintain a direct connection to to Peter Jackson's Middle-earth films. I, for one, would welcome Ian McKellen's involvement if he is asked to participate--eve...

Re: What colours do orcs and goblins come in?

Okay; 'glow' might be a bit of an overstatement, but I admit that I had completely forgotten about that passage! :oops:

Re: What colours do orcs and goblins come in?

The elves are too short, but at least some of them seem to have got the glow-in-the-dark bit right. Which bit is far too often overlooked. Outside of Middle-earth, Elves are often portrayed as shorter/smaller than Men. The only Tolkien-elves that I'm aware of that glow with a visible light are the ...

To make Otaku-sempai's post on topic, the orcs in Bright look like they might not be out of place in Middle Earth.
One major difference is that the Orcs of Bright are not automatically assumed to be irredeemably evil, though I expect that they do suffer from prejudice.

It sound really as the 'Alien Nation' movie.

Ringwraiths are in the Mirkwood Campaign.
Yes, thanks; that has been expected.

Re: Marsh Bell, Don't Leave the Path, or Journey's End & Eagle's Eyrie?

Another thing, Middle-earth-wise, to consider, is what stories you'll eventually move on to. In other words, which side of Mirkwood do you want your PCs? (as crossing Mirkwood is difficult and deadly, especially for newer heroes). Don't Leave the Path moves them from East to West, for example. Once...

Re: Audiences without the Cultural Attitudes

This topic reminded me of an upcoming movie, an alternative world story set in a fantasy version of our own present day. I'm not sure whether or not this contributes to this discussion, but Bright provides a modern take on Orc/Human relations. It is effectively a D20 Modern or Shadowrun -type story ...

Re: What colours do orcs and goblins come in?

I'm not sure whether or not this contributes to the discussion, but there is a new movie coming out soon, Bright , that provides a modern take on Orc/Human relations. It is effectively a D20 Modern or Shadowrun -type story with Will Smith as a modern cop partnered with an Orc-policeman. The trailer ...
