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 ...

Re: Shadow Items

The upcoming Rivendell Sourcebook will probably have a section on curses and removing curses from magical artefacts or legendary weapons and armour.

The TOR version did (as well as the rules for Legendary Weapons and Armour).

Re: Legendary ME Weapons

Are Legendary dwarf weapons automatically "dwarf-forged?" (i.e., +1 to hit and damage) Legendary weapons are magical, as far as resistances go, but have whatever hit and damage bonus their Enchantments give them. They do not stack an additional +1 for being 'Dwarf Forged'. 'Dwarf-forged' weapons ar...

Re: Rivendell Region Guide

Funny, I was looking at the home page yesterday, and either missed this, or it wasn't posted yet....

I was just saying to myself the other day: "Self, any time now, the AiMe version of Rivendell should be announced...."

Re: advice on exhaustion and rest on adventures

1. If a character accumulates one or two levels of exhaustion from the Journey phase, is the expectation that player must go through the entire adventure phase with exhaustion penalties? 2. If traveling as part of the adventure phase, as long as they "camp" (i.e., rest for 6 to 8 hours and have foo...

Re: Question about events during journeys

Yes and No. The journey formula will give you 0-7 events, depending on the length of the journey, the terrain type, and die roll. The LM can place those events as he sees fit, or play them out in order (I advocate placing them where they're most thematic). In addition, the LM may have set 'encounter...
