Re: The One Ring 1st Edition

First Edition TOR seems very hard to track down now. Apparently in any foreign language it is reported to be still available for sale as different companies - instead of Cubicle 7 - had different arrangements with the creators in those countries. So that seems to be fine. But the English speaking wo...

Re: Trying to plan a session involving the shards of Narsil being stolen.

I think I would suggest a shift in emphasis if you are not too stuck on it being the shards of Narsil that are being taken. Or you can give yourself complete free rein with this storyline by changing the actual sacred relic from the battle of the Last Alliance. Nowhere in LOTR does it say what happe...

Re: Magical success on Travel rolls

It is probably only me, but I am getting the impression that Magical Effects are talked about as if they were more like the Supernatural at work than in the first edition. I am a lot closer to (was it Arthur C Clarke who said Something like this?) " Any scientific phenomenon which is not unders...

Re: Wondrous Items, rolling the same blessing twice

Looking for the murderers of a family member seems like this could be a Strider mode query (?) If so, you can naturally choose to make it a really effective and single purpose Wonderous Object or decide for a more general +2d and get a second Common Skill enhanced by the same margin, as the game is ...

Re: Useful Item query

It does not seem too canon breaking to employ something like this. At the very least, the lodestone was used by Vikings in Europe, and so perhaps it had been brought across from Asia: after being recorded as used in 2700BC in a region of China to negotiate a consistent path through fog covered valle...

Re: Workable Rules for larger engagements

And having an extended prep phase creating and organizing those units (aka stating them out) would be a nice way to give players a way to personalize their units. ONE It sounds like the only limitation for this system is, that you basically have to split the players over different units to not comp...

Re: Workable Rules for larger engagements

@Asgo. Actually you have summarised what I observed as the LM during the battle really well. Thanks. As my own house-rules go, this has been the one I am most pleased with. It was done on-line and no one asked me about any of the mechanics once we started. The players narrated what they did, and whi...

Re: Workable Rules for larger engagements

I am going to guess that you have explored or examined some of the older forums that were around for TOR1e? In those places, James Brown had a Mythic Battles set of rules for abstract battles that the Players could participate in. And there were some others too. If you could look at some of those, y...

What's your narrative for a Might 2 attack?

"So you enter the cave... and there's a Slinker inside. You wade in with your sword, and the cave troll turns to fight back. " RAW: Round 1. Player rolls their attack dice once. Then the cave-troll Slinker gets two separate rolls attacking you. But, narratively, the player describes: "...
