Re: How to Fix What I Broke Mechanically?

You can easily use the Eye Awareness mechanic to represent when things go wrong and cannot be helped. Pippin failing a Search with an Eye triggered a revelation in Moria. Stepping on a twig is a bad thing while sneaking, but the argument is that you can assist ONLY when setting up an ambush. It is r...

Re: How to Fix What I Broke Mechanically?

EoS has nothing to do with success it just count as 0, and adds to Eye Awareness. So you can have a Great Success even with an Eye of Sauron. Yes, but the odds are doing so, especially with a low skill rating, are rather low, especially with a high TN. The problem with this rule idea is that somebo...

Re: How to Fix What I Broke Mechanically?

I can see a few problems with this house-rule. First off, it shouldn't be allowed if the hero rolled a Eye of Sauron result. EoS has nothing to do with success it just count as 0, and adds to Eye Awareness. So you can have a Great Success even with an Eye of Sauron. But the rule where you can assis...

Re: Modred's Men's Motivation

My Pc's caught some of Modred's men and were asking them why they followed him. (He is a bad lad in my campaign). I fumbled around for answers, as the Npcs. I got through the encounter okay but wasn't too pleased with what I came up with. Was wondering what motivations my fellow Loremasters would c...

Re: House Rule for No Quarter

So from my understanding to kill a charakter with No Quarter you have to knock him out first, which means you have to wound him twice or to reduce his Endurance to 0 in order to get the second attack (for a hate point). So there‘s no way to kill a fully hale compagnion in one blow, even with No Qua...

Re: Campaign Help Needed!

I always warn the players if their enemy has No Quarter. And remember that it cost 1 Hate to activate, and a secondary weapon must hit and score a great success or better against the defense of the player. The men from tyrant hill do not have a secondary weapon, so I would use the hound attack as t...

Re: New LoreMaster- a Company of Two?

I think you'll have a lot of fun with this game. While you'll be able to play with a party of 2, It'll be costly for the players to survive. Spending Hope to avoid Hazards and such. I recomend that they hire trackers when they need to hunt some pray and a guide when the need to cross Mirkwood... Int...

Re: Player knowledge of adversaries

These are good suggestions indeed. However, I wonder whether Encounters were made easy to succeed on purpose. At least in the published adventures I played, they are often key for the story to proceed. So they often come down to how well the player succeed not 'whether they succeed'. I think that t...
