Yeah there's a whole load of "dozens" in there!
Is that why TOR uses a d12? :D

Maybe, in a subconscious way, it felt right upon designing the game.

Re: "A hundred"

I always found fascinating all those "it is two days away at bird's flight, four by horse" and such ways of measuring time and distance. Measures are never (or almost never) precise: people won't meet in "an hour", but "at sundown", and things like that. It's one of the details I found irritating wi...

Re: "Magical Result" for the Battle skill

At the sound of a horn, an unexpexcted ally could arrive at the battle.

Have they made strange allies during their adventures along the Anduin Vales? The Erringmen, the Eagles, the Woodmen?

Re: "Magical Result" for the Battle skill

"But then a white mist came from the woods of Lothlorien that stood across the River from Dol Guldur, and the Riders were hidden and continued safely on their way..." This passage from the magical help of Galadriel to Eorl the Young could inspire something. Like a mist that engulfs the Leofrings, ma...

Re: Could some of the 12 Dwarves have been female?

The point of what I said is that, if you really wanted to go this way, you could treat on the fact that the entire story is told by an unreliable narrator. But I said right from the start that it's clearly not the intent of Tolkien so you would be making your own version of the world. There's nothi...

If we could be able to listen exactly to what happened at Bilbo's Unexpected Party, this is how some of the dwarves really performed Over Misty Mountains Cold:

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...
