Re: Player Awards

When we played earlier editions of D&D, we'd give XP bonuses (100, 200, etc) for certain actions. Good roleplaying, meaningful interactions with NPCs, acting within character to your detriment, heroic actions, and moving the story along in a meaningful way. That being said, we've dropped XP and have...

"An entire night" rest would be considered a long rest in 5e D&D. Therefore, I'd say that the elves' long rest is only 4 hours, not 8, and that the elf need not sleep. The rules mechanic for 'Elvish Dreams', comes from the Lord of the Rings, Book 3 of The Two Towers (Chapter: Riders of Rohan): "...a...

Re: Damage Resistance in AiME

After reading the clarifications in the LMG, I really believe (and will run my games) that enchanted weapons, cultural weapons, and Dwarf-forged weapons ignore damage resistance, since they count as magical. Although the LMG creatures do not specify 'from non-magical weapons', I'll rule it as such. ...

A sample of 5e appropriate spells for the Ring of Fire Wondrous Item listed above: Remember, AiMe assumes that 1-3HD effect do not directly harm others; 4-6HD cause minor harm, divination, or directly oppose the enemy; while 7-10HD effects cause serious and direct harm or overthrow another's will.

Here are two 'Gandalf-type' artefacts I whipped up, with suggestions on magical results: The Ring of Fire A gold ring inset with a ruby,...

Jon posted a separate thread on this, it appears to be a straight conversion of the adventures in the TOR book.
