Re: Brand New to this Place With Questions!

Without having read the books, and only watching the movies, why would it be hard for me to run a campaign setting with TOR and still keep the flavor of the movies intact (since thats what me and my players know LotRs from) because they have so much material in TOW over AiMe. I just don't understan...

Re: Brand New to this Place With Questions!

Re: your questions about classes -- are there wizards and clerics and the like? The One Ring introduced the idea of Callings, which sort of (and only sort of ) replicate classes for that game. Each Calling is a general motivation for why your character is an adventurer -- the Wanderer, for example, ...

Re: Brand New to this Place With Questions!

You are correct that Cubicle7 is currently publishing for two Tolkien-based games. The One Ring uses a unique system that emphasizes many of the literary themes and elements of Tolkien's books, whereas Adventures in Middle-Earth is an OGL (D&D 5th Ed) game, adapting many of the mechanics that C7 dev...

Re: "The Shadow over Wilderland" campaign AP -- SPOILERS

Here's the second session of our campaign. Again, this is the write-up I emailed to the players so it recaps everything in detail, and may be too long for some readers' tastes. Naturally, it also includes spoilers, this time for Rich Harrison's "To Journey's End & the Eagles' Eyrie". Session 2: To J...

Re: Another "New Journey Rules", inspired by AiMe

Falenthal, I've been casting about for an alternate Journey system for my own game, so I was eager to read your thoughts. I was seriously considering implementing Rich H.'s system, but I'm not willing to buy a copy of AiME just for their journey rules (which would be necessary to make Rich's rules w...

Re: Actual Plays?

John, I stumbled across your old APs when preparing to post my own. I really enjoyed reading them, and will shamelessly pilfer ideas.

I loved the way you described the feast at the Gathering of Five Armies, and some of those details will definitely enter my game!

Re: "The Shadow over Wilderland" campaign AP -- SPOILERS

Terisonen, I knew from your previous posts that English is not your first language, but like Otaku I could not figure out what that meant.

Makes a lot more sense now! Merci de votre opinion!

Re: "The Shadow over Wilderland" campaign AP -- SPOILERS

Indur, I really like the idea of having these three goons come back later. It's too late to have them turn the tables on the PCs by reporting them to the law back in Esgaroth, since the PCs have already returned and been treated as heroes. But I could see having them joining an outlaw band. After al...

Re: "The Shadow over Wilderland" campaign AP -- SPOILERS

That's an interesting observation, Otaku. I just checked the published scenario to see if I'd somehow misremembered the name, but that's the name he's given in "Don't Leave the Path". Maybe the author had encountered the Sindarin word but forgotten its meaning. Perhaps I'll edit it to be Lindir in a...
