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.

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

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:

Re: Differential Rewards for Player Investement

Reward him with incorporating his story into the adventures. Use his ideas in the fellowship phase and let the adventure phase have secondary objectives that will help with his Holding, or just build even more to his story.

Re: What is the situation in Mordor when Sauron is gone?

What about intelligence agents of Mordor? Would a Messenger of Lugburz be likely to encounter outside of Mordor, say in Mirkeood and Wilderland, in TA 2946? Definitly. If you want some messengers from Mordor in Wilderland at that time, you can have them searching for Gorgol, son of Bolg. Delivering...
