Re: Trading between Dorwinion and Gondor

Proof that trade in the ancient world really was more extensive than we would guess: Why did Vikings have 'Allah' embroidered into funeral clothes? Researchers in Sweden have found Arabic characters woven into burial costumes from Viking boat graves. The discovery raises new questions about the inf...

Re: Trading between Dorwinion and Gondor

If there is profit to be made, enough that it makes risk of life worth it, then merchants and traders will do it. Just look at the history of the Silk Road and how long it was and how dangerous parts of it were and how desolate some of the terrain was that it traversed. Which brings up a side though...

Re: Player knowledge of adversaries

I personally do not like giving out information in any game system that is of a purely mechanical nature, like Hate score. That is something that does not translate well into in-game knowledge. For things like that just make a list that breaks down all possible scores into groups, like 3 or 5 points...

Re: Mirkwood Campaign?

Are there going to be stats for Nazgul in the Mirkwood Campaign book? I read some references to that in the Rhovanion book, but didn't see any stats. One of my gaming friends said they have stats in one of the One Ring books. In The One Ring the Wraiths were presented as a more abstract threat unti...

Re: Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur

Since you are using the same time period that all the old MERP books are set in, you may want to try and track down the ones for that region to use for ideas.

Re: Magic Artifacts That The Shadow Desires

D&D 5E does not really include any magic item crafting rules, nor specific values for the items in the DMG. 5E is not meant to be the magic marketplace that 3E and 4E were. The 5E rules are actually written in a way that collecting magic items is not needed at all to succeed in a career of adventur...

Re: Travelling rations

Hardtack AKA Cram: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardtack One thing you could consider for any traveling ration, since we are talking about a fantasy setting, is maybe having some that have been made with medicinal or recovery-type herbs mixed into the recipe. Then those could give an added benefit ...

Re: Hobbits returning to Shire

After spending time at home, the next adventure could always start with the other player characters visiting the Shire to collect the Hobbit characters. Their journey together could start from there.

Re: Question About Character Progression

I jumped no guns, Amy. you might have said it a little more tactful than you did but anyways back to the discussion ............ Otaku, you may not have jumped the gun, but the Google comment was a bit flippant. And Amy, just be glad you are asking this stuff on these forums, as C7 prides itself on...
