Redemption?

Hi folks, I've got a question that I'm pondering for some time now. Has anyone of you given some thoughts (and best - some mechanics) for redemption of corrupted people? In TOR, there are excellent rules to manage the mechanics for a fall from grace (Hope & Shadow-rules) with the end result of corru...

Re: Alternate timeline for a film-based campaign

From your description it sounds as though there might have been some suggestions for the possibility of a movie-based campaign but nothing more. And even that might be an exaggeration on my part. IIRC they did nothing (at least nothing obvious) for a movie-based campaign. What they considered were ...

Re: Alternate timeline for a film-based campaign

I do not have anything from the Decipher LotR game(s). Jackson did not delve deeply into the history of the Third Age in his LotR movies, so I imagine that the game developers at Decipher probably took much directly from Tolkien's Appendices. Perhaps someone else can confirm this? Decipher's game w...

Re: Virtues for Men of Shadow

The Cosair's intermingling with the people of Umber wouldn't necessarily diminish their Numenorean heritage much as the Umbrans themselves contained the most significant reservoir of the Black Numenoreans. Sure, there were also Haradrim, but to say it disappeared by the War of the Ring sounds a bit...

Re: Virtues for Men of Shadow

Otaku-sempai is right about the Haradrim. I'd like to add that by the time of the WotR, the Corsairs were no longer of Dúnadan origin. The original Corsairs, led by the sons of Castamir, quickly intermingled with local wives and lost their Númenórean heritage between the 15th and 18th century TA. Ca...

I wanted my previous post to be understood as my closing one on this OT fork. No harm or inappropriate content was intended from my side :)

Re: The new adventure supplement

At your service :) A nice summary of these events can be found on this page on RPG.net , even though it doesn't give verifiable sources (though sources are listed at the end). But these are sparse indeed, mostly because the events concerned private companies that had no obligations (and interest) to...

Re: The new adventure supplement

I'm not sure whether it was Middle-earth Enterprises that objected to the excesses taken by ICE or if it was the Tolkien Estate that raised the issue, since it was with them that the company was in violation. The out-of-bounds material belonged to the Estate, with which Iron Crown had no agreement....

Re: The new adventure supplement

If they don't have approval, and thus cannot put the M-e E logo on the book, and publish anyway they may break the terms of their licence and we all know what happened to ICE when they produced unauthorised material. Somewhat OT to the precise question, but for the record for anyone who's intereste...

Re: My players want to explore Mordor. Now what?

Perhaps it could also be an idea to make it clear for them that it is very likely there will be casualties and thus it'll be almost certain that not all will make it out again.
