Re: Usage of "enemy of Sauron" character trait

Much of the "Lore" part would probably fall under the Shadow-lore trait. You might allow it if no other player has that trait in the group. Otherwise, I'd advise against allowing an Enemy of Sauron to be also a Lore Master. It seems fitted for characters like Elladan and Elrohir, who are fierce figh...

Re: Bree Scenarios - SPOILERS

and even the simple folk of Bree scorn you and treat you as mongrel curs to be worked or chased out of town as their mood strikes them. ... This could, in fact, begin to be true for the PCs: after the people of Bree have seen them in the company of Rangers more than once, and mixing in friendly ter...

Re: House Rule for No Quarter

p.130
A character whose Wounded box was already checked is
killed immediately when he receives another Wound AND
is reduced to 0 Endurance points at the same time.
Absolutely right, bluejay. Thanks!

Re: House Rule for No Quarter

But like I said, I've killed a PC with one hit from a Mountain Troll Hmm ... characters can be killed outright with a single blow but only if they were previously Wounded. Was that the situation here? As the RAW a character in full health cannot easily be killed in a single blow. Is it not an insta...

Finally there wasn't any travel during the game last night, but I calculated one anyway.
:D

Let me know how it goes for future travels during the game, and what you feel works or doesn't!

Re: Another "New Journey Rules", inspired by AiMe

But calculating the amount of days needed to end the travel still remains... long! (your houserules don't change that part, right?) No, it's not included in the rules. You still have to follow the method from the rules if you need it . In my games, it hasn't usually been that important if a journey...

Re: Another "New Journey Rules", inspired by AiMe

Making them Weary is too strong, I think. The fact that they'll probably get more Fatigue points already makes them more prompt to being Weary. I've never found a problem with the rules as they are in my games, but your question raised a good point: if a hero has the same skill level in Athletics an...

Re: Another "New Journey Rules", inspired by AiMe

Just a thought on "Forcing the March". You suggest to double the number of fatigue tests (not exactly what you wrote, but this is finally the same?). So, more fatigue tests, whereas one aim was to reduce the number of rolls. Not exactly the same. The proposed rules say: -Short [1-12 hexes]: 1 -Medi...
