Re: Bicycles in The Shire??

"Pop-gun" is spoken by Bilbo, although some may well interpret it as a translation. But it fits with the Shire as Warwickshire 1897, as do matches (in the source material) or velocipedes (a fun nod at the Shire's anachronisms relative to the rest of the setting from the TOR team in the Sh...

Re: Adventures...

I ran a Bree centred campaign a couple of years ago for 1st edition . The fellowship went around the old kingdoms, stamping out fires related to an attempt to resurrect Angmar as a power in the region. If successful, there would be a powerful enemy to the north that would threaten the whole region. ...

Re: ToR 2e - Tooling for remote group

The Fantasy Grounds module for The One Ring 2nd edition works pretty well. There's still some development to do to add the 2nd edition dice rolling to NPCs, and to add a party journey sheet.

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? In the Alpha, clubs were under the Axes weapon skill. In the published rules, they've been moved under Brawling with cudgels and the Ho...

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.

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

I'm playing a Hobbit whose main weapon is an iron-shod walking stick. My character has a bow and I've taken the Sure at the Mark virtue, but sometimes it's more appropriate to just pick up a stone to throw. Throwing a stone also comes under the Brawling skill. In the Alpha, clubs were counted under ...

Re: Additional combat proficiencies and weapons

The authors were very clear they would put in the rules only the weapons that characters in the books used. Hammers and staves are among the weapons the Hobbits have during the ousting of the ruffians from The Shire. When Sam got back he found the whole village roused. Already, apart from many youn...
