Re: Warhammer Fourth Edition News

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.

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...

Re: Help with Managing 'Shadow'

You'll want to take a look at page 184 of the Player's Guide but Kenomica has the right of it... a hero that is Miserable might suffer a Bout of Madness. When a hero has a Bout of Madness, they lose all temporary Shadow points and gain 1 permanent Shadow point and a degeneration as well. As for your...

Hello Doorman , and welcome! You're right that the Journey Events tables in the Player's Guide are generic... designed so that they can apply to a wide variety of situations and circumstances. It's up to each Loremaster to flesh it out... taking the previous events of the game, the capabilities of t...

Re: Thematic disconnect for starting PCs?

For clarity's sake, most of the Lake-town guide was adapted into the Adventures in Middle-earth Loremaster's Guide, along with many adventure hooks for the area around Esgaroth.
