Re: [Tale of Years] The Fellowship of the Free (Spoilers)

Really glad you like them, Rue, and I'm enjoying writing them up - will be really useful for my players as well. Also, will be interesting to compare my adventure write-ups to others like Majestic's - to see how the same campaign can deviate and how groups focus and develop different threads!? I th...

Re: Adventure Summaries (Spoilers)

Thanks, Rue ! I've got a few campaigns that have gone for a bit longer than people ordinarily run them. For example, my supers campaign (using the Villains & Vigilantes) system, is now about 26-1/2 years old, with most of that time us getting together every other week! Though everyone ends up making...

Re: Alternate Scholar

Thanks for all of your work on this! I've got a lot of Scholars in my game (though converted there will be some multi-classing), so I might look to this some later.

Re: Questions after my first LM session

Yeah, sometimes I do just that (lay a map out on the table). That's the kind of thing I would do with Lake-town, for instance. Other times, I might just describe things to them, or sketch out a rough idea (based on what they can perceive, at the time) on paper at the table (that's how I handled the ...

Re: Questions after my first LM session

One quick and easy way to get "ordinary men" for town guards and the like is to take the Mercenary Outlaws or the Brigands from Tales from Wilderland (if you have that book).

Re: New Member. Curious...

Welcome, Tea Jester ! Like you, I'm a big fan of Tolkien's Middle-earth setting. To me it's probably the most epic, coolest fantasy setting out there. I love role-playing in this world as well (though I've gotten to do it only rarely, as I mainly am the GM when it comes to this setting). I also real...

Re: Traits

SpottedBill is spot-on!

Awhile back, the TOR community put together a really helpful document called 'A Guide To Trait Usage'; I'm not sure if the link contained within still works or not, but you can find a thread about it from 'back in the day' that also might give some helpful advice.

Re: What Classes are the Fellowship and Thorin & Co.?

They don't spend every moment of their considerable lives practicing marital skills. Their marital skills and/or their martial skills. ;) We're seen here the major problem (for me...) of D&D : Classes and Level. It fit well for adventurer... Not for the rest of world. This used to bug me, I had to ...
