Re: Homebrew NPCs and Monsters

Here are a few NPCs from my previous home-brewed guides to the Gulf of Lune and the Blue Mountains, updated for TOR 2e: Galdor, Messenger of Círdan Galdor is the trusted messenger and envoy of Lord Círdan. A High Elf, he is often away from the Havens on his lord's business and is frequently seen at ...

Re: Where do the pregens get Equipment from?

I give my PH's narrative agency, which means that one of them could say, "I find a local farmer and ask to borrow his rowboat." As the LM, I can either make THAT a dice roll situation, or in the interest of moving the story along, simply compliment him on "solving" the problem, and continue on. Onc...

Re: Notes on character creation

In 1e the primary elf culture were Mirkwood elves which were primarily Silvan and Sindarin elves. These elves had never been to Aman and only some of them had travelled with Orome, so it made sense that they would be closer to humans in natural gifts. But the Lindon elves are the remnant of the Nol...

Re: Any reason Brawling can't be raised as a weapon skill?

I thought blunt but more martial weapons - mauls, hammers, maces etc - were included under the Axe skill? I’m sure I read that somewhere. Maybe in the Alpha or 1E? . Yeah, that was the Alpha. Under RAW those all fall under Brawling Attacks. There probably should be at least one Combat Proficiency f...

Re: Proof reading the new materials?

Tried to collate as many of these plus issues I'd spotted (lack of units on Map, Strike Fear can seemingly be used by each opponent in a single round etc) in to one Google document - even though the books have been printed there is always a second printing (second breakfast?) and the possibility of...

Re: Any reason Brawling can't be raised as a weapon skill?

May be best to just house rule a "Clubs" weapon skill and put the cudgel and club in that group.
.
That might be the best alternative to RAW, maybe expanding the category to "Clubs and Maces".

Re: What support is planned in the future?

Those are gorgeous. No offense to FL, but that color map is way more what I'd hoped for out of the premium map in 2e. Oh well . I did have some minor quibbles such as the Brown Lands seeming to be much more extensive than I would have expected them to be. Should they really encompass the entirety o...

Re: What support is planned in the future?

Btw, I really did like the map of Middle-earth that was produced for TOR 2e (C7): https://img.mewe.com/api/v2/photo/9nMvrzJa457X2b6x7ntM2MMTPCsv2dAnuORhfaLxVZBdt1NYNKTDAQ60M7U/1600x1600/img?static={static} Your link is broken, unfortunately. . Here's the link to the full-color map from C7: https://...

Re: Extrapolations

So Mithrellas and Imrazór were married and Mithrellas was a Silvan Elf. So if we accept both statements as true, the only way to reconcile them would require that the Silvan Elf Mithrellas was not of the Nandor who were counted among the Eldar. Is such a thing possible? In the War of the Jewels, To...

Re: What support is planned in the future?

I think Emyn Rómen might be a good name for those Mountains. Something like Taur-Anda 'Far Forest' might work for the forest (would likely have a local name as well. . Not bad; an alternate would be Emyn Rhûn (as rómen is a Quenya word). However, there is already a Mountains of the East (more forma...
