Re: What is going on in Ruins of the North? (Spoilers)

Throughout Rivendell and Ruins of the North there are some hints pertaining to the Witch-King, dark creatures returning to Carn Dum, and more concrete things like Mormog massing trolls for some sort of attack. As neither of these threads are brought to any sort of conclusion, I was wondering whethe...

Re: The Marsh Bell - is it fun?

Aside from introduction to game mechanics, did your group actually find this adventure fun? Should I start with Tales of Wilderland instead? It was the first scenario my group played and we had so much fun it convinced my players to continue the campaign. It's maybe not the best scenario for TOR, b...

Is there any chance Laughter of Dragons will have something to do with Greydelve?
Doubtful, since it's already something included in The Darkening of Mirkwood...

Re: Ruins of the North as a Campaign

I'm looking for ideas for the wose that appears in "Company of the Wain". We played recently the first part of the scenario and my group saved the wose. So he is with them for a year. What can I do with him to give him flavor? The supplement doesn't explain very well what woses are (and I don't have...

Re: Other Minds magazine, latest Issue published

I cannot help but think that we have not yet seen all that there is to see of the Sorceress. I wonder if she might appear in the Laughter of Dragons? I’d be against killing her off until I see what is in there.🙂 My feeling is that she won't appear in other supplements, and that she is in Heart of t...

Re: Other Minds magazine, latest Issue published

[*] The Gloomweaver Awakened (adventure for TOR) by Paul Kirk Really love the idea of the The Gloomweaver Awakened and how it is put in the context of Darkening. That being said, I would have put it way further in the timeline, in order to keep the slow burn. Having the "Gloomweaver" as an ennemy f...

Re: Your personal wishlist for TOR books

A Shire book to play hobbits, with adventures aimed at children (like the "Hero Kids" game, aka including simpler rules, and easy-peasy scenarios for players starting at 5 years old and up).

Literacy in Middle-Earth?

In my last game the question came up: what's the level of literacy in Middle-Earth? Meaning, if you meet someone, how likely is that person to be able to write and read? My take is that it seems like many characters can write and read in Lotr. So I think the level of literacy is quite high. But it m...

Re: Frár's Beard (...or Lack Thereof.)

I also went with the "it's a nickname that stick after the beard grew back". I think pretending that his beard take so long to grow back is unnecessary and a strech of the imagination...
