Re: Surprise for TOR

Wouldn't want to spoil the creative fervour but four days ago on the FB page was this:

Re: [Who Fancies a Game?] My Custom War of the Ring Boardgame

Amazing work Rich!
Really brings the game to life. I'd be over for a game or two but you're a bit far away.
My gaming table is currently unusable or I'd break out my copy in honour of your effort... :mrgreen:

Re: Player knowledge of adversaries

I've tweeked the way I count successes for this reason. I'm not counting any introduction successes, they only determine who is allowed to chip in. Failure still reduce tolerance. Only the guys that are introduced get to determine tolerance. Only successes that are achieved with the subject in mind...

Re: Hobbit tales - unreadable icons

Have taken out my copy and compared the Adventure cards with the back of the rule book. I found that the five colours of the Journey Icons are pretty easily distinguished from each other: red, green, blue, orange and yellow. However some of the eight different Effect Icons are quite similar - there ...

Re: Campaign Help Needed!

I have been running my TOR campaign for about 18 months with about 1 x 3 hr session per month. I started with Zed's Theft of the Moon but continued with DoM plus a few other adventures if it suits. Just the way I play, and I don't think I have a great imagination or particularly creative compared to...

Re: Woodwight!

Well, the 5 characters (plus a LM guide) took on the Woodwight last night (and a second). It didn't help that a female Woodman had a Hound of Mirkwood with Harass Enemy.... although she was the only one who made their Fear test. However she got a Gandalf on her first roll and the woodwight failed hi...

Re: Woodwight!

Aha - thanks Zed, I hadn't come across that thread before.
I think I'll take your advice and allow it after the Opening Volley but before Close Quarter combat.

Cheers!

Woodwight!

My players are about to be attacked by a woodwight within Mirkwood - first time against one of these or any kind of supernatural opponent. So far they have only fought Men and goblins. It's an interesting change of opponent - it has some different Special Abilities, including Strike Fear, Denizen of...
