Re: Eye Awareness for Sindar?

The mechanics already allow for additional modifiers (characters hunted etc). Any news about Rangers is important as are the comings and goings of all noldor, hence their modifications. Sylvan elfs frolicking in their woods is of no more interest than wandering human merchants hence their default of...

Taking Courage

Used this optional rule for the first time last session. There is a ranger (now other characters have retired, the leader with 60+ xp) and a bunch of newbs. Each of the newbs ended up with 4 courage points (heart and relative xp). With twice baked honey cakes and a hobbit there was a fellowship pool...

Re: Hope Points are never sparse - are we doing things wron

It could be down to two things - pace of the adventure and difficulty being set by the GM. It is one of the oddities of the system that the refresh is per session rather than at key points. All it takes is a short session, some procrastination or overly cautious play and at the end of a session that...

Re: Success Dice Pool Limit

Right, never seen it written as a max of 6 dice before AC. Pretty certain we had a character with 6 weapon skill before he 'retired' and fairly certain he regularly rolled 7 dice due to the combat advantage. Could have really done with nailing this down. Also, is the 'or more' seems redundant unless...

Re: Masteries Clarification Please

It does not specifically state that if one mastery is chosen the exercised mastery can be anything, just that they can get 'a second mastery'. It does not make sense to me that if a character has chosen Corruption Mastery, exercising this mastery as an undertaking allows him to get Dour-Handed... Th...

Success Dice Pool Limit

Characters with 6 skill can still benefit from Preliminary Rolls, meaning that technically they can have success dice pool of 7 (no reference to 6 limit in the rules). In AC however: [Mastery Dice] addition may bring the total of Success dice rolled beyond the normal limit of six dice . • When makin...
