Re: AME & TOR combat equivalents

After reading through this thread, it's got me to wondering. I wonder if I should change her ability, to instead give each member of the Fellowship Inspiration instead. Both versions of the feat you mentioned seem fitting to me. I haven't read what the Lore Masters Guide says about "inspiration" ye...

Re: AME & TOR combat equivalents

Well, Intimidate is a skill for AiMe. And a Charisma test (Performance) might be used to try to rally your companions. The Slayer path: The Rider can acquire the ability Intimidating Presence that can be used while mounted. The Rider ability Horn Wildly Blowing is used to inspire allies. The Warden...

Re: Play styles: Adventures in middle earth vs The One ring

They will be utilized like Hero Points (+1d6 bonus on a roll, per point spent, 1 point per roll allowed, can use 1 point to auto pass one death save) I recently just noted that the Warrior Archetype's knight has pretty much the same mechanic/theme built into "Officer" ability, as the DMG hero point...

Re: AME & TOR combat equivalents

The Inspiration rules are in the SRD-OGL document for D&D 5e. Of course if you are attempting to rally your comrades with a song or stirring speech, I would assume you already have a friendly audience. Would that have any effect--i.e. granting advantage--even without spending inspiration? Good poin...

Re: AME & TOR combat equivalents

That seems pretty straightforward. If you make a Charisma check (either Intimidation or Performance) and you have inspiration, you can expend it to gain advantage on that roll. And inspiration can be passed on to another player-hero if you have a good reason to do so. Great. Yes I was just trying t...

Re: AME & TOR combat equivalents

It strikes me that the inspiration mechanic could also be a good way of invoking an aspect like "rally troupes" perhaps in conjunction with a charisma roll? Not sure is RAW allows for sharing an inspiration with your fellowship, but it seems a very Tolkien use of the inspiration mechanic. Perhaps it...

Re: AME & TOR combat equivalents

Thanks - that's really helpful. I've been flicking through the rules in AME, but it takes a while to familiarise yourself with the separate class abilities and virtues etc. I really like the flavour and tone set by TOR, and found it very evocative of the books, and was curious to see how that could ...

AME & TOR combat equivalents

Is there an equivalent in AME for the TOR combat actions of "Rally Troupes", and "intimidate"?
Do these come under special class abilities/virtues in AME?

Re: Cubicle 7 and Games Workshop announce new edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay

I'm not sure what is meant by the 'Heroic Culture system' is to be sure, but I'm skeptical because WFRP isn't necessarily about playing 'heroes' as such, and the cultures are distinct in the way they are in The One Ring. Yes totally agree with this. Anyway, one change that could be made, and could ...
