Re: Fatigue rules: too harsh... and one piece of trivia

Bear in mind that the Rohirrim can benefit from their horses. When mounted, they reduce their Encumbrance due to armour by the value listed on page 134 of Horse-lords of Rohan. So Herubrand isn't quite so bad off as he might seem at first.

Re: AiMe Characters and the Balrog

Problem is that he's so deep underground that his connection is spotty. He's looking forward to the Fourth Age, when technology will hopefully improve (things are still good compared to the First Age, when they had to deal with dial-up). And then the Ainur lifted their voices and, lo, it sounded li...

Re: AiMe Characters and the Balrog

Lately, been neck-deep into researching Moria, I can't stop thinking about the MERP moria map, which has a suite of rooms for the Balrog at the base level of Moria. I keep wondering what it does over the long years hanging out down there. Fancy dress parties. The Orcs that survive the experience sa...

For clarity, lordmalachdrim’s offending post was removed.

A good rule of thumb is to be kind and considerate to both hosts and other guests.

Re: Converting MERP Levels to AIM/5e Levels for My Upcoming Campaign

For clarity, Thranduil isn’t a 15th level anything. He is presented as being a Challenge rating 9 opponent, if he was to be encountered alone and confronted by foes. His Proficiency Bonus of +4 is similarly due to his Challenge rating and not due to his Hit Dice.

Re: What do you expect or want in a Gondor source book?

Unlike some corners of the intarwebs, there is not a list of banned words, phrases or ideas. However, there is an expectation of civility that should encompass all posts. I would ask folks to carefully consider what they are posting and if it adding to the conversation. Sure, a joke post adds to th...

Re: Warhammer Fourth Edition News

It doesn't look good when you miss the release date you had announced and then go radio silent about it and everything regarding the project, while at the same time a game like Zweihander is released and can scratch the same itch with ease. A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is fo...

Re: What do you expect or want in a Gondor source book?

Gaming supplements do not, as yet, return themselves to the shelf, nor does a set of them do it in perfect synchronicity.

Right. You don’t gain any degeneration until you have a bout of madness.

Re: Werewolf of Mirkwood's Regeneration

And please note that the wording (for the note in the Mirkwood Campaign ) is a ‘common English’ phrasing there and not game mechanics. What actually happens is the Werewolf sustains damage that would bring it to 0 hp, Fell Spirit is triggered (since it can now take that reaction), the Werewolf gains...
