Re: Spoilers: LoreMaster Only!: of Leaves & stewed hobbit

Yeah, it's certainly worth remembering that the Night-wight is Craven.

Re: Bree Scenarios - SPOILERS

A longer-term solution: the characters must infiltrate Gorlanc's company and destroy him from within. Assuming they've stopped him getting the Ring of Seven Jewels, then he might need a company of adventurers to go off questing in Eriador for long-lost magic. That's fun... a quest that the heroes w...

Re: I ran Eaves of Mirkwood last night.

Those sound like solvable problems,especially since you're aware of the issues... especially the second one. As a wise person once told me about something similar, if you're aware of the potential for it to get out of hand then you're aware enough that it probably won't (or at least your slip-ups wi...

If you have the Loremaster's Guide, the Lamp of Balthi is described on page 18.

That invitation still stands, Jacob. I'm hoping to get Jon playing this if/when he visits. :)
Understood. I'll get over there one of these days... I plan to try and hit one of the big UK conventions and then tour the country. But it's going to take a lot of planning to accomplish. One day.

Re: [Who Fancies a Game?] My Custom War of the Ring Boardgame

That looks awesome! Great job on everything and definitely a game that's worth going all-out on. — • — Google says about 20 hours of travel time and a shade under a $1000 if I'm willing ignore petty things like no checked bags and a 4.5 hour coach ride from London to Sheffield, and all my responsibi...

Re: Finally getting to play this!

Sounds like you've got a good handle on things. Weapons are indeed improved only by using Experience Points and not Advancement Points after character creation. You could invest in as many weapon skills as you like, but it's not practical to do so. For my players, who have been going at it for years...

Re: Tips for fighting Tyulquin (DoM spoilers)?

Thank you Francesco and bluejay for clearing things up! The thing I like about it is that when invoked, it will only ever do basic damage (since if you had rolled a Tengwar, you'd have gotten the Called Shot off instead). I must be missing something here. Your house rule only affects the RAW on a n...

Re: Tips for fighting Tyulquin (DoM spoilers)?

What I might do is keep that house rule that Rich mentioned above for Called Shots caused by Eyes, but use the normal Called Shot rules if the adversary chooses to make one. That way Eyes still make things more dangerous. This is a nice alternative indeed. Francesco The thing I like about it is tha...

Re: New to AiME- Please help me understand lvl 3 "Rider" ability!

The mount's action is not the rider's action. Each of them has their own action. It has to be that way, because a controlled mount cannot take the Attack action and if the mount's action and the rider's action had to match up then you could never attack.
