Herbs and Similar

Other than the Lake Town guide, I'm not aware of anything which details interesting herbs with strange properties to find. Can anyone point me to a resource, fan or otherwise, for more herbs or more herbs for more locations. I found http://forums.cubicle7.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4611 (this) discus...

Re: Beorning Thane Title

One of the challenges I've run into in games I've GM'd is the PC's perception of all of the NPC's as incompetent. That's not the case (mechanically), and it isn't that way in the lore? How do you show major figures like these as competent and important WITHOUT having them overshadow the player's act...

Re: Beorning Thane Title

Great ideas!

Culturally, they're kind of like chill Vikings, right?

Beorn is powerful both as a leader and warrior, but is very reluctant to take action. Why is that? He doesn't seem to really like being a leader .

Beorning Thane Title

2 of my player's companions got the title Thane from Beorn (it's an undertaking if you do something awesome for Beorn). So they get a plot of land and some standing.

What cool things might they have to do as Thanes that might count as plots?

What stuff is there out there about Beornings?

Ease of Running ToR vs AIME

If any of you have GM'd both versions, can you comment on whether one is easier to manage than the other as a GM?

Re: Horn of Minis Arnor

It can't possibly be that this is the way it was meant to work. The thing that makes more powerful adversaries more powerful is mostly their attribute level. So basically my players are never going to be affected by this core but of mechanics. I'm going to house rules that each use after the first i...

Horn of Minis Arnor

Re the Horn of Minis Arnor (AC 68), can the companion use it repeatedly during combat? It makes a MASSIVE difference as no matter how powerful an enemy is, they don't get to add their attribute bonus.

Sauron Rune on Corruption Test

Does rolling a Sauron rune (along with a failed roll) on a corruption test have any other affect beyond gaining temporary Shadow? Do you gain *more* shadow?

Re: Men of Minis Tirith Undertakings?

I'd like to include the thing where you're on patrol w/ Faramir's psedo-rangers. You should get something cool for that.

Also, something about the white tree.

Also, something where you get to hang out at the coast.
