Re: TOR: Which scenarios are considered “best” from 1ed?

I am currently running Wilderland Adventures (adapted to Forbidden Lands system but that's another story coming from the fact I own an Adventures in Middle Earth 5e scenario), and it's huge fun.
7 small scenarios, very diverse, and plenty of Lord of the Rings' feelings.

Re: Problems with "Protect companion" task

You can also see the problem the other way round : you don't assume a defensive stance because you know what the opponent will do, you assume it because one of your companion is having trouble, or is wounded, and would risk death if hurt one more time. The decision comes from your will to help someo...

Re: Heavily armoured armies are unviable

Narratively only Dwarves can consider wearing heavy armour throughout their entire army. The Cultural Blessing makes it viable. Is there such a cultural blessing in TOR 2e for Dwarves ? I can't figure this out. Stone Hard could be useful to fight with a 2H weapon, but not really something helping t...

Re: Heavily armoured armies are unviable

Also, Bardings probably wear lighter armors as their stats are similar to those of the Elves. Dwarves are more fond of this coat of mail gear probably, with 22+Str for Endurance. And the good combination could be with heavy armor + 2 handed weapon, or smaller shield + axe or sword. And the remark ab...

Re: Heavily armoured armies are unviable

The goal of protections is not to get wounded in the first place, so what kind of protection would this gear bring ? Mail Coat + helmet : protection 5d Great Shield : Parry +3 So for a Hero with 6 Str, the Parry would be 17, not impossible to overcome. Maybe with a Defensive Stance you may last long...

Re: Year Zero Success Roll Table question.

Can someone enlighten me on the formula being used? I just cannot figure out how Free League are getting those numbers. As said in the articles, it is easier to calculate the probability of failure, and subtract from 1 to know the one for success. It is the case here as a "success" is validated if ...

Re: First session, got questions

Yes, Hope has to be spent when you are "about to roll". But it seems a bit scholar to say "you had to decide it before rolling, that's the rule" while all people here are obviously learning a new game. What you authorize as a DM during the first sessions can only be an exception to emphasize how the...

Re: First session, got questions

I think you deal with that session very well, but your Treasure Hunter has been taught a harsh lesson. Concerning the Healing roll, the core book says concerning Abilities p.17 "it is highly advisable to have a single player make a roll, except when when something involves everyone in the group." So...

Re: get my hands on the TOR alpha pdf

Hello Arthur,
if you are talking about TOR 2e alpha pdf, it is a bit late : at this moment FL has released the final version of this pdf to all people that have "kickstarted".
So the official pdf will probably soon be available to buy on whatever site FL chooses.
