Nazgul and water

The unique One Ring rules set invites tinkering and secondary creation. Whilst The One Ring works brilliantly as written, we provide this forum for those who want to make their own home-brewed versions of the rules. Note that none of these should be taken as 'official'.

Small thing, and prehaps a necro post, although that seems oddly appropriate for the topic!

I think the undead have trouble crossing even normal running water - that is certainly true of Dracula, and I think the Vampyre in Polidari. What the source of that legend is I don't know, but I am sure Tolkien knew of it genrally. I've always felt like the Nazgul have a little Dracula in them...and in game terms it gives the players a chance, admittedly I have not used the Nazgul directly in any play, I kind of keep them off stage, in part b/c I am not sure what to do with them honestly.
