Re: Uses for Treasure

Hmm. Well the game isn't really built so that you can buy better gear . There aren't rules for that . I guess just improve your standard of living .

How to Gain Patronage Given Standing

The Adventurer's Companion lists requirements for gaining patronage - for example you need standing 1 with Beornings or Woodmen to gain Radagast as a patron. If the company includes companions from outside that culture, it seems like the only way you can gain a patron is to receive a title from that...

Uses for Treasure

Aside from raising Standing (and temporarily raising your Standard of Living), what, if anything, do you do with Treasure?

Corruption Test in Blighted Area

ToR 224 describes Corruption tests for blighted areas. However, I'm not clear on what the TN is and what the outcome is? Is the TN a static 14 or equal to the terrain (e.g., 20 for shadow lands)? Is it 1 corruption point on failure, 1 on sauron and somethign else?

Re: Experience Sink

Is it supposed to be just one adventure per year? I've been running 2. Is this going to be a problem for Darkening of Mirkwood?

Group Stealth

If the companions attempt to take attackers by stealth, and only some of them pass (and the others don't have extra successes to give them if you allow that house rule), what happens? Do NONE of the companions get surprise attacks, or just the ones that succeed. I think it's the former.

Kicking Up Combat

What approaches have you taken (or house rules) for making combat even more interesting? One of the general bits of advice I've read is to (1) include the environment and (2) have the situation change from round to round.

Corruption Test vs Blighted Place

What's the TN for a corruption test in a blighted place? Is it always TN 14, or is it based on the location (e.g., in Shadow Lands TN 20).

Shield Bash Special Ability

I'd like to give some enemies the ability to Shield Bash as a secondary attack. What might that look like stat wise? I would guess very hard to do wounds, but decent endurance and potential to knock you down.
