Re: Atmosphere

I always put on appropriate music, and feel it adds tremendously to the atmosphere. But make sure it's down fairly low, so that it doesn't make people difficult to be heard over.

Re: Best Patron and Premise for Multi-year Campaign?

I've run Tales from Wilderland and am about halfway through the 30-year Darkening of Mirkwood campaign. I'd consider Radagast over Gandalf, if I were you (if you plan on focusing on Wilderland and those named adventures). Most of the focus in on Mirkwood and the Woodmen, though there is also a lot o...

Re: Suggestions for a first time player

Excellent advice so far! I'll just add that, a little bit different from most other RPGs is the way this game breaks down into an Adventuring Phase and a Fellowship Phase. The Adventuring Phase is the 'meat' of the adventure, and this takes up the majority of your time at the table (this is the majo...

Re: Ease of Running ToR vs AIME

I've GM'd both, and to me they seemed about the same. I imagine it really comes down to how familiar you are with the rules to either game. Both are quite similar in many ways (especially in the 'triad' of regular play being encounters, travel, and combat), with both having a Fellowship Phase, Adven...

Re: Treasure 2.0

I'm extremely detail-oriented, but my preference (in most RPGs, really) is to rarely involve money/treasure, unless it is warranted for a particular story. I can't even recall Standard of Living coming up much (if at all), as if you've got somebody in the party who can cover costs it's usually enoug...

Re: Revised Core FAQ/Errata

I do agree that it would be nice to see an Errata document, with at least this one item. Honestly, though, this game has far fewer errata than most. Mostly there's a few clarifications on how to interpret certain things (like how Denizen of the Dark applies to rolls by adversaries only, not rolls ag...

Re: Legendary ME Weapons

They must have changed things. Most parties have truck loads of +3 weapons by the time they reach 7-10 levels in D&D. That is an awful lot of legendary weapons floating around out there. BTB, do they not still have the Holy Avenger for the Paladin? +5 wasn't it? At the risk of naming another produc...

Re: Generations and Levels in 'Darkening of Mirkwood' Campaign

Wow! That is indeed fast. I'd seen that chart, but hadn't looked at it in some time. My group is obviously going much slower than that, but part of that is because it's such a large party. Which makes battles much easier, overall, but it causes them to each get less XP (as they're dividing it amongs...
