Re: Beorn and Viglund

I think there was also a mention in the aftermath of the Beorn/Viglund war that there's a secret chamber underneatch Viglund's house where Beornings found bodies of three strangers who carried the emblems of the lidless eye... Since Viglund's folk have always been known as slavers, I thought the emn...

Re: Miniatures for TOR

Hi, I manged to convert me some wild men of Mirkwood: like I mentioned before, I used Victrix naked Gauls as the base. The I used some Dark Age / Viking heads from Gripping Beast (I think?) and replaced the plastic spears with solid metal shafts, as the plastic ones won't take much handling to break...

Re: Hoping for an Endgame sourcebook

Aren't there some battle rules in the House Rules section of this forum? And there's rules for building your own force (Burh & Fyrd) there as well? Of course, official stuff would be nice too... Speaking of wargames rules, that reminds me: If you want to tabletop game battles, there's always Battle ...

Re: Miniatures for TOR

Yeah, I've seen them and like them - but I've already started converting some Victrix nude gauls for the the purpose. I will dress them up a bit though. :mrgreen:

Re: Shadow for killing innocuous orcs

I'm not sure how to engage with this as it feels like a bit of a trap. One minute you're saying don't get hung up on calling things a punishment, the next you talk about punishments but then state you're joking and then you ask if we all agree awarding SPs are in fact a way of punishing then would ...

Re: Shadow for killing innocuous orcs

Denethor was driven insane by the Enemy, using Palantir to feed him images that made him despair. That, and losing first Boromir, and then Faramir (apparently), his remaining heir. The desperation/anguish was planned, and it was a big victory for Sauron. I guess he's a prime example of succumbing to...

Re: Shadow for killing innocuous orcs

I dunno maybe that's it? What do you see shadow being then, other than the sphere o the Enemy's influence? Is not a real thing? Is it a metaphor? Do you read your Tolkien as an allegory rather than epic fantasy? @Rich, I think it's form of punishment in the same way getting wounds in combat is a pun...

Re: Shadow for killing innocuous orcs

Sure, but note that in all cases of anguish and blighted places, you (with one exception) you get to roll a corruption test, and potentially can avoid any Shadow points gained. Whereas in misdeeds you get the points automatically, since you actively embrace the 'dark side', as it were. That's not ju...

Re: Shadow for killing innocuous orcs

Sure, but we've been talking about misdeeds specifically, or are we mixing the two now?

Re: Shadow for killing innocuous orcs

Yes of course, the more strict your code is, the more it's going to be tested in real situations. Only stands to reason. And if you pass these 'tests', you can assume a moral high ground. But if you have voluntarily assumed a very strict moral code, does it automatically mean shadow points, if you f...
