Re: Republish MERP (Middle-Earth Role Playing) with I.C.E.?

The consensus has been that there are insurmountable obstacles to this project, but only you have been able to explain that all the MERP IP has reverted out of the possession of ICE and into the possession of Tolkien (now Middle-Earth) Enterprises! That was the short version. The long one need not ...

Re: Republish MERP (Middle-Earth Role Playing) with I.C.E.?

There exist several major problems, that make this an extremely unlikely endeavour: Legal Issues: The current ICE has nothing in common with the old one that published MERP. When the latter went bancrupt, the remaining IP from them was bought by Aurigas Aldebaron and a "new" ICE created that re-publ...

Re: Fan Adventure

But I don't want to publish a fan fiction, but rather a scenario for the The One Ring -RPG. So I need to know if there are any issues by Cubicle 7 if I publish material for their game. Generally that hasn't been an issue in the past. IMO you should refrain from directly reproducing C7 material (e.g...

Re: Maps of Moria

This old thread also contains some info on the topic and a short summary of what was done better in ICE's and Decipher's version of Moria - respectively.
Generally, I found the maps in Decipher's box quite uninspiring. The sheets were nicely done, but very generic and random-style.

Re: Trading between Dorwinion and Gondor

If during his occupation of Dol Guldur Sauron had any strategy involving the Easterlings then there is no evidence of it. Though strictly speaking, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence (argumentum ad ignorantiam). Sorry , I couldn't resist ;) I don't see traders being willing to travel up...

@Tolwen

Hi Thomas, who is writing the article on the Kings and Queens of Cardolan and Rhudaur? It sounds very interesting indeed.🙂
That'll be me :mrgreen:

I have the feeling that will evolve into some kind of brief history of these two realms (plus Arthedain to a lesser extent) ;)

Re: The Hall of Fire - issue 1 Released!

@Tomcat It did look very interesting during a swift perusal last night. It seems that it would be a pity for the Hall of Fire Webzine to come to an end so abruptly, over a misunderstanding about art. I would like you to continue with your efforts. And if I might add some advice from personal experi...

True, but I was not intentionally trying to imply that Elrond had wed in the Second Age.
I did not inhtend my last post to be too deadly serious (thus the twinkling), and of course I wasn't suggesting anything regarding your post :)

Re: Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur

Crap! You're right. Thanks, Tolwen; so corrected! 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 ...

Re: Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur

Elrond, Celebrían and their children dwell in Lindon with Gil-galad. Rivendell will not be founded until the destruction of Eregion in TA 1697. Wasn't Eregion's fall in SA 1697 rather than TA ? IIRC Elrond and his family lived in Rivendell from ca. SA1700 onward and thus by TA1350 they reside there...
