Re: Campaign Idea Assistance

Have you played the videogame War in the North? Even if you haven't, I'm sure there are videos on youtube with full gameplays or such. If you take out a lot of the action and hacking&slashing, the history behind, the big NPCs, and the story are very well fitted for a Northern campaign. Also, you can...

Re: Moria

There I halted for a long while. It was almost a year later when I went on and so came to Lothlorien and the Great River late in 1941. Gareth's post hints at a Lothlórien supplement for next year. ;) Actually, if you parse it, it suggests that the Lothlorien supplement was written in 1941 by Tolkie...

Re: Moria

"In spite of the darkness of the next five years I found that the story could not now be wholly abandoned, and I plodded on, mostly by night, till I stood by Balin's tomb in Moria." There I halted for a long while. It was almost a year later when I went on and so came to Lothlorien and the Great Ri...

Re: Questions about hiding & Called Shots on Opening Volleys

Just for completions sake, here's where my mistake about "half the company" comes from: If the company is being ambushed , the heroes roll for Awareness, Hunting or Battle (depending on the situation). If half or more of the company succeeds, they are considered defenders regarding initiative and Pr...

Just to clarify. Everyone need to succeed at stealth to ambush
But great and Extraordinary success can help others to succeed
Thanks! That's right.

It's why elves don't want dwarves around when ambushing goblins...

Re: Questions about hiding & Called Shots on Opening Volleys

1. Suppose that the PCs choose to hide, should I ask for Stealth checks (at TN 14, or TN 10 + Highest enemy attribute bonus)? And how should I handle the outcome? On the one hand, if a companion fails, they are discovered, and this probably means the whole fellowship has to fight. On the other hand...

Re: Shadow for killing innocuous orcs

This effect that some things hit you harder the first time you do/behold them has come up sometimes related to Corruption. Also to make the first killing of a character grant Shadow points. And maybe the first killing of a human (even if it is an Evil Man) to grant some more. It could be interesting...

Re: Beorn and Viglund

I don't have a threaded idea, but what about linking it to the pilgrimage Beorn does to the Misty Mountains to meet Oromë. It is one of the Adventure hooks from Darkening. Maybe Beorn gave to Viglund, at some point in the past, the power to be a shapeshifter into wolf. Viglund was to be Beorn's heir...

Re: Weapon qualities

Yes to all.

Regarding your last question, IIRC, a Cultural Reward is considered as having one Quality. So that 2 more Qualities can be added to it.
