Re: Mixing up Fellowship Phase steps

It all seems to make sense. I remember having this dilemma previously and coming across an obvious situation where it should be allowed but I couldn't remember the situation. Robin's example of opening a Sanctuary was the situation that I had previously come across. Thanks Robin! It is interesting t...

Re: Use of Hope Points during Fellowship Phase

Good to hear - not allowing characters to gain Advancement points make sense.

Thanks!

Use of Hope Points during Fellowship Phase

Sometimes characters get to roll for skills during the Fellowship Phase - e.g. writing a Song.
I couldn't find anything to say that a Hope point can't be used in that situation so I have allowed it.
Does anyone know anything different?

Re: Getting poisoned through armour

So, now I have acquainted myself with the Called Shot rules - I want to confirm one last aspect. If an Adversary attempts a Called Shot, I presume that, as well as successfully reaching the attack Target Number, it also requires a 6 on it's Success dice to hit with a Called Shot. I see that the rule...

Re: Getting poisoned through armour

I also see that in my hasty reading during the session that I missed two(!) references mentioning Poisoning relating to Called Shots amongst the Spider rules! :roll:

Re: Getting poisoned through armour

Ah thanks Random and everyone else. I hadn't realised that it was a Called shot effect from just reading the Spider entry on the rules book (p241-2). Haven't used spiders (or anything else using Poison) before... I can see how this represents the rare occasion when a spiders sting would actually pen...

Getting poisoned through armour

Hi all Last night my players were finishing a battle with spiders in Mirkwood. The characters who relied upon higher Wits (and thus higher Parry) to avoid being hit and poisoned were often successful - whereas those, such as the Dwarf, with lower Wits but wearing better armour were being poisoned re...

Re: Could some of the 12 Dwarves have been female?

Here's an idea/bit of a twist for DoM... Maybe Frár the Beardless (p22 HotW with sketch, but also p65 DoM) is actually a dwarf woman who has just put out a rumour or two that 'his' beard was cut off by goblins, or by servants of the Elvenking. ;) Maybe she didn't want to have to wear a damned-nuisan...

Re: Surprise for TOR

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

"TOR fans, we'll have some exciting Oaths of the Riddermark news soon too!"
