Re: Spoilers: LoreMaster Only!: of Leaves & stewed hobbit

I ran the AME version once with 4 players and once with 6. I think the key is to scale the battles back to the size of your group. With the wight, if they are struggling, you can always reduce the hit points or have it flee the battle (perhaps the sunrise scares him away?) I also tend to hold back o...

Re: Spoilers: LoreMaster Only!: of Leaves & stewed hobbit

I have run this twice using AME and about 5 times with TOR rules. Both times were with level one characters. This was the adventure we demoed at Gencon this year. We used the pregens from the book which were all level one characters. One thing it might require is a little tweaking of the Night wight...

Re: [Who Fancies a Game?] My Custom War of the Ring Boardgame

That looks amazing. I was happy just to get my armies painted in the right colors. I can only begin to imagine the work you put into that.

Re: For book and movie fans - the scent of a Hobbit?

Or perhaps it was the unknown scent that piqued Smaug's curiosity. Had he smelled a dwarf or man he would have roasted first and asked questions later. This was something entirely new to him. I doubt he felt intimidated, but instead was curious enough to take pause before belching fire upon the intr...

Congratulations on getting a game going. You seem to be ready. I can't really improve on any of the advice given. Have fun, ask questions if you have any, and let us know how it goes!

Re: Player knowledge of adversaries

What do you guys think about my second question above: hidden rolls for some of the tests? In over three years of running The One Ring, I have never had occasion to have a hidden roll. I don't think that TOR really needs to keep anything hidden from the players. I'm not saying that a hidden roll me...

Re: Rules handout for conventions?

Having now run about 15 games of TOR at various conventions, I second what Zed said. I usually give a quick overview of the game. I talk about the setting, that this is a narrative RPG, I explain what the skills are briefly, talk about traits and their usage, talk about Tolkienesque heroes. Then I e...

Re: Doubts about "The Anger of the Elvenking" adventure

Maybe these particular elves don't know the players?
