Re: Cardboard cutouts

Everything I have seen seems to point to a 2-meter grid as a standard. (Two meters is around 6 feet; compare this to five-foot squares for 5E D&D and other general battle maps.) So, one inch would correspond to 2 m.

Re: What Classes and Levels are the Fellowship?

With the level 10 limit how would you change the above? When I first ran OD&D back in the 70's, I did a lot of Lord of the Rings style gaming. Here was my guideline: Level 1 = Flunky = character with no real skills Level 4 = Hero = well experienced, travel in groups Level 6 = Hero+ = heroes who...

Re: Ruins of the lost Realm + replacement dice

I'm in the US and still waiting on both Ruins of the Lost Realm and my replacement dice. I'm not sure how long I should wait before trying to contact folks, as it appears that others in this thread haven't gotten theirs yet and I'm maybe low in line or something like that. I'd hate to be lost somewh...

Re: I've already got AiME, sell me on LOTR 5e?

I'm not a part of the design process, but let me give my best guess. Cubicle-7 put out TOR 1E and lost the license, so the same designers jumped to Free League and created TOR 2E. At the time they said that the design goals were to streamline and fix a few things, but essentially to not make 1E obso...

Re: Dragonbane

Yeah, I'm one of those internet fans hoping for any name other than Dragonbane. Dragonbane just sounds so generic. :(

Re: Some thoughts on combat…

I was going to start a thread on initiative but then found this thread. So it seems like the advantage to going early in the round is that you get to deliver damage quickly and maybe take out the bad guys before they can attack. The advantage to going late in the round is that you can use your actio...

Re: Alternate Middle Earth setting

My idea is a Fourth Age thing. Once the One Ring is destroyed, we all assumed that the power of the three and the seven and the nine was gone as well. What if it wasn't? So Sauron isn't killed but is dispersed and has to claw his way back into power. Working his way down the line, his spirit divides...

Re: Need advise for a new GM on preparation

- some form of "oracle" (omnipus) has mentioned such things in a few posts. There's one in the GM book. My favourite is the Mythic Game Master Emulator (really all you need is one page from that whole book with the fate questions and thread generators). Not to sound obtuse, but I have the...

Re: Popularity of TOR vs. AiME

I haven't seen anyone play either one, but my game store stocks AiME and never stocked TOR. I've talked about running something at the game store and got a lot of interest in AiME but almost none in TOR. I think it's just that 5E rules all hereabouts. I know for me I bought TOR at GenCon years ago a...

Re: Beta Testing

Would love to join as well. But honestly don’t know how this should work. The second edition is due early 2021. They are finalizing the text right now. You need at least a few month for people reading and playtesting. Not to mention including the comments. I guess this is not going to be a big play...
