Re: Firsttime TOR Loremaster asking for Marsh Bell Oneshot Advice

Again, another nitpicker... :lol Ok, I accept your interpretation. But from a mathematical view point, if you can fail 0 tests before the encounter is over, then it is over already. It also seems logical that 1 is the minimum tolerance, which would give the players one try. 2 tests is not logical a...

Re: Firsttime TOR Loremaster asking for Marsh Bell Oneshot Advice

Have the Hillmen be very hostile and set it up as an encounter with tolerance 1. First failed test results in combat. Not to nitpick, but that would actually be a tolerance of 0. An encounter ends/fails when the number of failures exceeds the tolerance, not when it equals it. Now that you did nitpi...

Re: Firsttime TOR Loremaster asking for Marsh Bell Oneshot Advice

Thanks for all the feedback =) I'll let incorporate that into my planning of the adventure =) Another minor Question, for a Group of 4 , what would you recommend as an introductory Combat Encounter on their way to Esgaroth? I thought of maybe 4-6 Wild Wolves depending which pregen Characters they c...

Re: TOR and your RPG group -- problems, solutions?

My question for more experienced LMs -- was there a period of adjustment for your groups? Did they have to warm up to TOR or were they immediately enthusiastic? What did you/they like and dislike? Did you adjust to accommodate tastes? We came from D&D to MERP with Rolemaster rules to Decipher CODA,...

Re: Tasks and Tests question

A player failed their stealth roll, and you failed with a 6. You can spend hope and succeed and use the tengwar to help them succeed as well. Just to avoid confusion: using great or extraordinary successes to help a comrade with a task or test is a common house rule. There are a couple of instances...

Re: How does Foresight of their Kindred

The point of the rules on this is that you only get to use it for one session per adventure . (These session-based rules can feel a bit arbitrary, and don't apply well to things like PbP. Or marathon sessions. We always play for an entire weekend, and the “Session” bit of many of the rules is diffi...

I suppose maybe with the exception of eyes adding to Eye of Sauron counts. Maybe? Does anybody do this?
Yes, I count eyes, but not while planning a journey in a safe place, and not during battle. So really only Insight for encounters in the Wild.

Re: Pipe making

If you want this House rule, then I advise you to at least modify it. Crafting a pipe should not generate treasure, Instead it should cost treasure to attempt the craft test. TNs should not go up with higher skill, Instead have it fixed at 20 minus 2 per great material used. I.e. Mallorn wood... Qua...

Re: Quick Laughter of Dragons Update

This is great news!
My Darkening campaign could do with a new side quest :shock:

Re: The Laughter of Dragons - Erebor Adventure Book?

I’m hoping for a wide timeframe, and that I can include it in my Darkening campaign, like I did with Tales and some of Ruins.

My guess with regards to a release date, is for mid February :geek:
