Ooh...if typos are being corrected, the 2nd paragraph of the "Old Oak" sidebar on page 56 is missing some words.
Thanks for that. I already made a fix in the source file, but I'll wait a bit to collect some input and make a collective bugfix ;)

Re: Other Minds magazine, latest Issue published

Some notes on strange details[snip] You noted some issues that Falenthal already made me aware of. I uploaded a fixed version yesterday. It seems there is no release version without overlooked errors/glitches - and OM17 is no exception ;) Beside a few spelling and/or grammatical errors, the followi...

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...
