Re: Gollum

T'was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair. But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her....yeah. Good one, Luwin! It always kinda surprises me that the LZ were Tolkien fans ;) But what kind of girl can be met in the depths of Mordor??? Probably the sam...

Re: Optional Heroic Culture: Woses of the Druadan Forest

I love this, and it reminds me of the times I was playing MERP (I was a player back then) when one of my friends played a Wose. A very interesting and original culture, I've always seen them as a sort of Aboriginal Australians transplanted in temperate forests, with small touches of primitive celtic...

Re: Converting High Elves of Rivendell

Going a bit OT, I've added a small drawback to the Dunedain as well, inspired by their TOR counterpart: they can't gain Inspiration based on Distinctive Qualities, Specialties, Hope or Despair, unless these features are roleplayed in the very act of protecting a character, or a place. Examples: Dist...

Re: The Istari

I am in complete agreement with you about your concerns (about the limits on magic in Middle-earth), and I have tried to address them in the (WIP) Revised Chapter 10: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4db4roogztt0g ... .docx?dl=0 I did put this onto the Limited Magic thread as well, I think you should chec...

Re: Hound of Mirkwood Virtue

It seems that the original question remains unanswered, so I'll make a clarification. This is your "base" Hound of Mirkwood, prior to the application of your Proficiency bonus: HOUND OF MIRKWOOD Medium beast STR 13 (+1) DEX 14 (+2) CON 12 (+1) INT 3 (−4) WIS 12 (+1) CHA 7 (−2) Armor Class 12 Hit Poi...

Re: Why does the Scholar suck so bad

I do stand by the substance of what I say. Games should be designed so that anyone can enjoy them. The fact that my group was basically drawing straws to see who had to play the scholar means we have a problem. Mechanically a group absolutely needs one, but they are the kind of class that more peop...

Re: Gollum

Thank You! I really like it! Thanks for sharing! Cheers Thank you kindly, Luwin. :) This version of Gollum is no match for an entire Company, even at 1st level: but it may be very dangerous for isolated 1st- or 2nd-level characters, especially if he successfully ambushes them. I was planning to int...

Re: Non-Wilderland PC's in Wilderland?

What is your back story for getting your non-Wilderland PC's adventuring in Wilderland? Well, that's a good question. I've developed the following hooks: 1) Dùnedain: the Rangers want the character to be their eyes and hears in the Wilderland. Once every year (or less frequently), the Dùnedain in t...

Re: Why does the Scholar suck so bad

[...] We forced the last person to make a character in our group to make a scholar. No one wanted to play one. It is really pointless to limit the combat capabilities of non spell-casting classes so hard. Not having a scholar was not an option, cause duh. This means we had to force someone we like ...
