Re: What colours do orcs and goblins come in?

The Orcs are definitely stated to be corruptions of the 'human' form seen in Elves and Men. They are (or were) squat, broad, flat-nosed, sallow-skinned, with wide mouths and slant eyes: in fact degraded and repulsive versions of the (to Europeans) least lovely Mongol-types.

Re: Corn in the Dalelands

Thanks for the answers!

"Fields of grain" sounds a bit odd in Spanish, would be too far-fetched to translate it as "wheat"?

Corn in the Dalelands

I'm proofreading the Spanish edition of Erebor and there is something that puzzles me. When describing the Northern Dalelands, in page 53: Newly built farms and villages are springing up everywhere, and golden fields of corn have been sown .

Re: Entwives campaign idea

There was a MERP adventure published in the White Dwarf #87 which may serve as inspiration. It is called Taurëfantô and it can be found on Scribd (here).

Great work (as usual!) even if some of the detail can be a little intimidating it's always of a high standard and obiviously carefully researched. A personal plea: please keep the miniature discussions and articles going. I know we can often sneer at people that use them in their games but I also l...
