Re: Concise Rules summary

@Andwise, yes, Strider Mode is surprisingly fun (and brutal at times too). @baldrick0712: The second Councils page has the alternative rules listed with the errata in Ruins of the Lost Realm (RotLR) and is referenced under the header. This only affects the Introduction portion in the lower left. Use...

Re: Concise Rules summary

Thanks for this Rafamir. The page on "Councils" seems to appear twice. Also, why are two Fellowship Undertakings highlighted in green? For my campaign, I highlighted the two undertakings the party elected to pursue. I've removed the highlight now :) The second Councils page has the altern...

Re: Concise Rules summary

Wow, that is a really good summary form! Well done, Rafamir!
Thank you. I may not have updated the Dropbox version in a while (I’ve been keeping it current on Discord). I’ll post an updated link in a day or so.

Re: Increasing Attributes

- Take Heavy Blow to get a higher Heavy Blow damage bonus, but without lowering your Strength Attribute TN. Do you mean the Dour-handed virtue here? The inability to increase Attributes means it's a big deal for cultures that offer an Attribute boost at Character Creation: Rangers of the North and ...

Re: Shadow gain

Rate of Shadow gain depends a lot on what foes they're facing. Whatever the cause, what your player-heroes will want is HARDEN WILL on page 137: In game terms, Player-heroes whose accumulated Shadow does not yet match their maximum Hope score may choose to remove all their current Shadow, replacing ...

Using Hope to power especially powerful magic item

As I start creating custom magic items, I'm tempted to have my players come across something spectacular. I've had a thought that Hope could serve as a sort of Mana to power, and to limit the use of, magical effects of a particularly powerful wondrous item. For me, this takes the non-canon 'spellcas...

Re: Throwing Knives

Some additional thoughts to keep *everyone* from reaching for these alternatives: Rather than making the attack its own proficiency, link it to the Athletics skill and impose -1d (similar to Brawling). The throwing knife or axe is a Reward, not a readily available piece of war gear, and therefore ha...

Song in TOR

Seek for the Sword that was broken. In Imladris it dwells; There shall be counsels taken. Stronger than Morgul-spells. I answered a thread in BoardGameGeek and thought to post it here too. I'm curious how others view or interpret the discussion points I've included after summarizing the three main ...
