I never realized how much harder fantasy is than other genres.
What is it you find difficult when compared to other genres?

Re: Campaign Help Needed!

Like the OP I find many of the adventures in Darkening to be very thin, unless you really add a lot of your own material. As you see I really need to load all sorts of stuff into the campaign to get some meat on the campaign, and that is great for me, but it requires work, that not all have time fo...

... And that one's mine and I highlight it because its an example of taking published material (eg, the adventures Marsh Bell and Don't Leave the Path) that can be used in different ways and expanded; useful to consider, based on the OP's challenges.

Re: Campaign Help Needed!

I actually believe that you can successfully combine some the adventures in Ruins Some, yes. I agree and said that. Others would feel too forced or require a fair bit of work. The OP said he struggles with GMing fantasy etc so such work could be an issue but your specific tips for the adventures in...

Re: Campaign Help Needed!

You can continue to combine Darkening with published adventures, like Ruins and the new Bree. And keep Darkening as minor quests... The geographic locations of those are a barrier to doing this, unless you do quite a bit of work (at least on some of the adventures) to move them into Wilderland or h...

Re: Question About Character Progression

I'm not sure I follow... You state in the same post that 5e is unknown to you and yet state later on that D&D5e has left a 'foul taste' in your mouth? If it's unknown to you, how can that be? :?: It is unknown. ok I read up on it long ago, a very small bit, and saw things like how Wizards can wear ...

Re: Question About Character Progression

5th ed (even if I wanted to play 5th) and TOR rules are both unknown to me so no matter which way I go I'm learning an all new rules set. If I have to learn new rules I would rather they be TOR rules. As an AD&D player you'll certainly pick up the rules for D&D 5e/AiMe as there are many common elem...

Re: Question About Character Progression

Yea but kinda turned off by that game, I heard it did not really stay with the FLAVOR of Middle-Earth, that it went off into adding new stuff to the lore, the world and the setting that were not already in it As you've stated you haven't read Tolkien's works and only know LotR through the movies th...

Re: The Hall of Fire Webzine

So, for OM, the published stuff is a good reflection of what comes in as submissions. I think the well-know, and respected, reputation of OM to adhere strongly to Tolkien's work likely shapes the type of submissions sent in - ie, some people won't send in stuff because they know it is outside the l...

Re: Question About Character Progression

Hi Amy! Such a BIG change in rules from Classic AD&D that I am used. To be honest, if you're used to Classic AD&D then take a look at D&D 5e; I don't think its really too far away from what you're used to, and comfortable, with playing. You can even pick up the core player rules for free over on the...
