Re: Have a question

I suggest reading Charlie Stross' books for background and then reading through the rules. The rules work just the same as something like Call of Cthulhu (both based on Basic Roleplaying/Runequest 2). You'll need at least someone to run the game and a couple of players as well.

Re: Online Role Play tools for The One Ring

There are a few ways of running games online. Roll20, Hangouts/Skype and Google docs and Fantasy Grounds. Most others need a degree of technical competence that can be daunting (dealing with firewalls and routers) Of these three only Roll20 offers builtin character sheets and a degree of automation ...

Re: Colourblind friendly maps

Anyone with the pdfs of the maps can print them to a printer or pdf and chose the greyscale option (if available on their printer) so probably wouldn't need to get someone else to convert them for them.

Delirium Brief

Re: Bree is available in PDF

Usually Strange as News from Bree, which reminds me of an old newsletter produced by a friend of mine back in the 70's and 80's, Hartley Patterson.
