Re: Favourite Place in Middle-earth

Rohan, specifically Edoras. As a 1/2 Swede, I think I'd really enjoy Mead-ing it up with a bunch of Viking-horsemen and tall, blonde shield-maidens..... :P

Re: Converting MERP Levels to AIM/5e Levels for My Upcoming Campaign

I also built the Fellowship using the AiMe rules, and have seen several prominent NPCs written up in official sources. Here is my take on the characters at the start of the Fellowship, using only the Core rules and looking at specific abilities each character 'had to' have: Saruman (Scholar 20/HD20)...

Re: DC checks during Journeys

Or, you can do what I propose and do: Use the 'average' Peril rating (per RAW) for Embarkments and Arrivals, but use the ACTUAL Peril rating for the region the event takes place in. That way, events in Mirkwood or the High Pass are always harder, regardless of how easy the rest of the journey is. Co...

My first instinct is that you should choose when you first declare your attack, but I don't know that others would agree.
I would agree.

Re: Realism in Middle-earth

Even with those, however, I'd like to imagine that denizens of Middle-earth came up with...or evolved ..."dice" that are different from ours, and are played with different rules. Yes, Middle-earth dice are 12-sided, and have an Eye for '1' and a G-rune for 12...... :D Sorry, I've been thoroughly en...

Re: AiME Journey Calculator

Very nice!!!

Any chance that you could pre-program the Embarkation roll/results? So if you put the roll in (1 or less; 2-7; 8+) it will print out the results and effect? Same for the Journey roll/results?

Just a thought.

Re: Rivendell Region Guide

What new stuff was released in TOR that might be in the AiME version? Curses for Legendary Weapons & Armor, and how to remove curses. The Witch-king of Angmar, Barrow Wights, Ghosts, High Elf PC's, The Eye of Sauron rules (journey complications for using too much magic), TOR Rivendell also added Le...

Re: When to find Magic Items.

Well, as an Elven weapon, it usually has 1 bane, but can have 2. As a 1st Age weapon, lets say it has 2. Sting has Banes against Orcs and Spiders. In the stories, Lumenescense works for Orcs only, but Spider Bane would allow it to cut though webs and use the Superior Grievous/Superior Keen against S...

Re: When to find Magic Items.

Exactly!! Level 2 is fine (Loremaster choice). Especially since a weapon like Sting (elven made, First Age weapon), probably had 3 magical enchantments (Luminescence, Superior Keen, Superior Grievous, I'd say). So, a character like Bilbo would get 'Luminescence' immediately, then would get Superior ...
