Re: Corn in the Dalelands

Good points :) In addition (and as a more direct answer to Arthadan's question), it depends on the situation. In German it's perfectly normal to refer to a "Getreidefeld" (a field of grain) if the specific situation does not warrant a specific definition of the exact cereal crop grown there. I guess...

Re: Corn in the Dalelands

"Fields of grain" sounds a bit odd in Spanish, would be too far-fetched to translate it as "wheat"? I guess that depends on the language and its usage. Like in English, German has a generic term for all these crops. In English it's "grain", while in German you say "Korn" or more commonly (nowadays)...

Thanks! I missed that. Has anyone written up the Leofrings as an Heroic Culture? Perhaps as a variant of the Rohirrim?
That'll be part of the upcoming OM17 :)

Cheers

Re: Anduin Width?

The Mississippi in the U.S., at more than 2,300 miles long (some say over 2,500 miles), might be another good analog for the Anduin. Using this, you'd have to factor in the same potential issues as with the Volga, as both are approximately of the same length (ca. 3,700km or 2,300 miles). Ideally, y...

There was a MERP adventure published in the White Dwarf #87 which may serve as inspiration. It is called Taurëfantô and it can be found on Scribd (here).
Or in an updated version in Other Hands, Issue 27

Have fun! :D

Re: Anduin Width?

IMO a comparison with the real world is very helpful. As the Anduin is approximately 2,200km long, a comparison with the Dniepr of almost the same length might be considered. However, as the Dniepr has many dams and hydroelectric stations which have led to the creation of many large reservoirs its c...

Re: A Gondor book?

Let's also not forget that Tolkien wasn't a scholar of ancient warfare. We mustn't take the lessons of history too much to heart when understanding the arms and armor of Middle-earth. I wouldn't go that far. At first his historical models lay in the early (or at latest - high) medieval era rather t...

Re: Redemption?

Thanks for your thoughts guys. Of course it is neither an event that is likely to happen often or even regularly, but within the greater context of the world (i.e. how things work and are interconnected) it is something worthwhile to think about. Player characters who get over the edge (i.e. having ...

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...
