Re: Question regarding TfE (no spoilers) and Hunting

It's a good idea. I asked because my experience with D&D system was Pathfinder 1st edition (huge) Rise of the Runelords where each episode or chapter was linked with the heroes' level and players have to go from point A to B and from B to C... So there was no possible sandbox or open world. Som...

Re: Magical Success and Blessing Dice

You are correct. What's more, even though a magical success almost always succeeds, often how much more than the DC required is of importance. For example: if you succeed by 5 or more or by 10 or more, you get an even better result.

Re: DnD basic rules adapted for LotR 5e?

There is no need for an adaptation. You can use the Dungeons and Dragons Basic Rules, which is a free download.

Re: Question regarding TfE (no spoilers) and Hunting

Anytime you have a sandbox adventure/setting, you run into the encounter level issue. Way back in 3.5 days, there was a sandbox setting that had low, middle and high level encounters for each location, so the DM could just let the party wander. It had low/mid/high wandering monster tables too.

Re: Question regarding TfE (no spoilers) and Hunting

Re Hunting: The journey rules do not specify anything about providing food, so it's a LM call. Personally, I have the fellowship's hunters make a skill check to obtain food on the journey for each day of travel. This is a completely separate issue than the journey events. Failure means dipping into ...

Re: Tales and Ruins of Eriador release

I did get a shipping notice by email. And they arrived on time. It's probably stupid to say but have you checked your spam folder and double checked your email and shipping address?

Re: Managing the Troll Encounter - Spoilers

Foxes bark and howl, just like dogs. They also make a noise called gekkering.

A lot of animals in Tolkien talk too.

Re: Default company size

That's the general rule of thumb for all RPGs as far as I know. It goes back to the iconic Fighter/Mage/Cleric/Thief roles of original DnD.

Re: Why are Guides not possible targets during Journeys?

Possibly. I see the logic in the argument, but I disagree with it. No matter who is the target of the event, the others stand by and watch. I am of the opinion that the Travel check and the event checks are an entirely different thing, and the Guide should be a possible target. Maybe a weighted d6 r...

Re: Advesary Index Cards

It's a cool idea, but be aware that you're copying copyrighted material. Maybe check with Free League to be sure they're cool with it.
