Re: The Twice-baked Honey Cake conundrum

Not quite sure if I follow you on the market pool part. I am quite new to TOR, to RPGs in general for that matter, and I have not read anything mentioning a marketing pool or what so ever. Is this something from a supplement or might this be a AiME thing? It is from rules from the Lake Town supplem...

Re: The Twice-baked Honey Cake conundrum

Hi all, I was just wondering how some of you would go about PCs wanting to buy certain items that could help them later on. Especially with items like Twice-Baked Honey Cakes, keeping in mind that the PC does not own the corresponding Virtue. Or items that would help restore Endurance during the Ad...

Re: Litteracy in Middle-Earth?

I think C7 see all of the playable cultures as literate.
Why else have the “Write a letter” fellowship phase

Re: Litteracy in Middle-Earth?

The Sindarin element does surprise although the language of Gondor is a good way to allow for ease of communication with outsiders for gaming purposes if not for anything else. Although, it being spoken in court is something to develop ideas from; I mean, how would some in court feel about a foreig...

Re: Frár's Beard (...or Lack Thereof.)

I’m not trying to persuade anyone, but my take on this is that he had a very long beard braided with gold rings and tugged underbeath his belt. The elves cut the beard, but did not take the time to shave him. So he remained beardless until he were able to braid it again and insert some gold rings, a...

Re: Most amusing results of an Eye roll/failure

While visiting the Eagles after a rescue from an Orc attack. One player failed Courtesy with an eye, so the rock he thought he was sitting on turned out to be an egg!! He was not part of the interaction after that... And the other players had to succeed with some Inspire to make the Eagle spare his ...

Re: Oaths of the Riddermark - pre-order now!

No need for any update from C7 on this particular title. We have the PDF and I’m sure the hardcopy is comming along nicely, same as with all the previous titles.
We know it takes time with printning and shipping, thats why it’s so great that we get the PDF on pre orders. To satisfy the hunger

Re: Defense of Dale at the Quays

Unfamiliar boats that try to enter will probably be noticed. Everyone has a place they dock. A stranger will probably make a mistake and do something unusual... So you need to use a local boat, follow the rutines, although seemingly chaotic at first glance. The same kind of preparation is required t...

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

So in other words I think the problem, if there is one, might not be with the game but rather that your preferred playing style differs from that of your fellows.. the way in which journey hazards tend to limit player agency in terms of their resolution (which can feel more like a choose-your-own a...

Re: AIME and TOR: what’s easier to learn/teach?

Hey, if someone wanted to start DMing in middle earth but didn’t know either the D&D 5e or TOR system, which would you recommend they get into as far as ease of learning and teaching goes? When I started playing TOR, I read the books and then we started. None of the players have read the rules... C...
