Re: Uses for Treasure

Yeah, you really can't rely on chain-stores for the good stuff. Mom-n-Pop used stores or estate sales (especially if there's mysterious circumstances) are where it's at. ;)

Re: Heirloom of Elder Days

It's the +1 to +6 range, not extra dice.

Re: Loremaster Guide

Check out this link, and the previous one as well.

To sum up... Loremaster's Guide in the UK warehouse now, but they say there are a lot of preorders to fill.

Re: Player Awards

I'm running more 1-shots than anything else these days, but I used to have my players declare both short term and long term goals, and hand out rewards for achieving both. It also helped knowing their personal goals, as it made tailoring the campaign easier.

Re: Corruption Test in Blighted Area

When this came up recently, I opined that the Region Type should be used. At least, that's what I do.

Re: The Easterly Inn as a Holding

I believe Dody does joke around at one point and call the Inn the easternmost part of the Shire. I think that there might be some interesting interplay in how Dody and other Shire-Hobbits think of the hero (i.e. Standing) versus what the local Beornings think the halflings are up to (i.e. Valour).

Re: Question About Getting Attributes

That being said, you do get a chance to customize them a bit by selecting where your Favoured values are applied. For example your basic Body score might be 5, but you have a choice of +3, +2, or +1 to add to the 5 in order to get the total.

Re: Experience Sink

My feedback might be colored by the fact that I'm running the Darkening of Mirkwood campaign in one of my games with a strict rule of "one adventure per year" (it's a 30 year campaign and I'd like to get it done before senility hits). But there's certainly a range. The slipcase rules are perfectly u...

Re: Experience Sink

It's been a little while since I looked at the slipcase edition, but 13 XP seems a little ambitious. Or at least it certainly implies more than one adventure per year. There are several Virtues that ask you to spend XP to upgrade the Virtue. Hound of Mirkwood, Wood-elf Magic, Broken Spells, etc. The...
