Re: The Laughter of Dragons - Erebor Adventure Book?

The Elves of the Grey Havens, plus the Corsairs of Umbar and the Gondorian Sailors will all come together as factions in a boardgame of Naval Battles.

Expect Sea-serpents (a.k.a. Fish-dragons) and Fastitocalons as Hazards.

Re: Christopher Tolkien Resigns as Director of Tolkien Estate

I guess that the importance of the resigning is that we're seeing the consequences of it right now, in the form of the agreement for a TV Series. The box of Pandora of Middle-earth as a cash machine has been opened for real. I don't feel it has to be an issue: certain products will be good, and cert...

Re: The Laughter of Dragons - Erebor Adventure Book?

I guess that, at least, he is refering to re-visiting Dale and Lake-town, which already appeared in Tales and Darkening. As for "adventuring places" that will appear in Laughter, and which were already in other published adventures, who knows... Maybe the hoard from the Marsh-dwellers came from a dr...

Re: Derivative Plots

The twins, Elladan and Elrohir, are in fact a single person with double personality. He's real name is Murdock.

And there's a grumpy bearded dwarf in the team that doesn't like to fly on Eagles. Mountain Ambassador (M.A. for short) Barracus.

Re: The Laughter of Dragons - Erebor Adventure Book?

While we were working on Oaths of the Riddermark (and hey, long before that too! But Oaths really shone a light) it became really obvious that there's a balance to strike between telling a compelling set of stories and giving players a whirlwind tour of all the best locations in a region for its ow...

Re: Erebor on the horizon?

Suddenly the cliff fell away. The shores sank. The trees ended. Then Bilbo saw a sight: The lands opened wide about him, filled with the waters of the river which broke up and wandered in a hundred winding courses, or halted in marshes and pools dotted with isles on every side: but still a strong w...

Everybody has is own Balrog.
There's a delightful children's book somewhere in that idea. Perhaps with a dark ending.
The moment you close the book, it burns in flames.
Or the reader falls down a bridge, depending on the edition.

Re: TV series set in Middle Earth may be coming

... a prequel series focused on the journeys and errantries of young Aragorn. It wouldn't be a bad idea or approach. The twins Elladan and Elrohir would also make for interesting side-kicks. And one of the seasons could feature the hunt for Gollum, thus introducing another known and charismatic cha...
