Post Re: Middle-Earth (MERP) RPG (1-3 Openings)
Unfortunately I have had a weekly meeting rescheduled to Saturdays. So I do not know when I will be in on time in the future. I may stop by from time to time, but for now unless I say otherwise, plan on me not being there. I am sorry for this, I enjoy partaking in the adventure and hopefully will be able to pick it up from time to time. Feel free to use my C if you want as an NPC Animist...he's not been doing much anyway, so it shouldn't change conflict dynamics too much. Hope to check in on things from time to time and will look in at the boards as well. If I can be of help, just let me know. I hope things change schedule wise in the future.

Aldamir, send me your current pc sheet for my files.

No new players submitted and it looks like our Animist is out for the time being. His pc is open should someone like to play him.

I have several openings for those interested in playing in Tolkien's Middle-Earth set in the early 4th Age.

The party has explored some ancient dwarven ruins dating to the 1st Age, perhaps around the time of the War with Morgoth. They have awoken a cave drake while exploring the ruins and have discovered some ancient treasures. Now can they appease the cave drake with some of these treasures or will they slay this child of Morgoth and continue on their journey?

Game Time/Day: Saturday evenings 9 pm-12:30 am EST.
Session #19
Game Server: Mayhem
Backup: Blackstar
Game Room: Middle-Earth Roleplay
Timeline: Fourth Age 1
Game: MERP 2e rules with possible Rolemaster expansion later on.
Level: 3
House Rules: 100 gp to start (ignore 2 gp starting funds), you may pick your background options or roll them randomly. However, if you wish to combine them all into one mighty magic item/heirloom or the like, you must seek approval from me first. You can buy minor magic items with your gold or herbs or the like. See pgs 258-260 MERP 2e.

Magic Items/Background Options
Magic items come in all shapes/sizes and they can make up for low stats and they can grant you PP as well if you need some to learn / cast spells.
Depending on how you wish to spend your background options will give you different options to choose from. You can roll randomly or pick or work up something with my help.

Here are some examples:

You can substitute any style sword/axe/weapon for these..

1 background option: +15 Broadsword (made of Arborang with Numenorean runes) with scabbard
OR
+1 spell adder (wand/staff or something) or x2 power point multiplier (ring, amulet, brooch etc)
2 background options: +30 Broadsword (made of Arborang with Numenorean runes) with scabbard
OR
+15 Broadsword (made of Arborang with Numenorean runes) with scabbard
+15 Bow or Thrown missile weapon made of some fine wood/steel (I'll look up the material)

You could spend more pts to get something like "of Slaying Orcs" or the like too. Or you could spend an option to get an item like a pair of magic boots/cloak or some other device that enhances a skill +15 bonus or something.

There are lots of examples in the books/supplements or just run your ideas by me.

Also no Orcs/Trolls/Corsairs/Easterlings/Haradrim/Variags/Black Numenoreans as pc races. Noldor are also going to be rare. Sindar or Silvan elves ok, most other men and dwarves, hobbits are alright. Also you may reroll your attributes if they're all lower then 65 one additional time, keeping the results. Remember that you can replace your lowest stat with a 90 for your prime attribute. Also remember any stat below 20 can be rerolled at any time.

Sheets should be in .doc/.rtf/.txt/,pdf or pc node files preferred, but the .xls file that trollblood offered will work too. Send me your completed sheets to my email at landothearchmagi at comcast.net.

House Rules
Every PC starts a game session with 3 Fate Points.

A Fate Point may be spent to:
- Add a +50 bonus to a Maneuver or Attack roll if declared before the dice are rolled
- Add a +25 bonus to a Maneuver or Attack roll if declared after the dice are rolled
- Add +25 to DB against one attack
- Save you from an instant death crit table result, instead placing you in a coma for 1d10 hours

Fate Points may not be spent on Resistance Rolls.
No more than 2 FP may be spent on any one roll.
(Note that this heavily favors action and offense over defense. This is intentional as I want to encourage heroic action and attempting wild stunts rather than turtling.)

You gain 1 FP by performing heroic deeds and acting with valor. You can keep doing this until you're up to your full allotment of 3 FP. You may never hold more than 3 Fate Points at a time and they do not carry over from session to session. Each session you begin anew with your allotted 3 Fate Points. When spending Fate Points on a wild maneuver or attack you should describe the cinematic action you perform vividly and with flare. Villain NPCs do NOT have Fate Points, except for important main villain NPCs, at the GM's discretion. So an average orc would never have Fate Points but the Witch King of Angmar likely would.

Roleplay encouraged. Please be sure to state your actions clearly.

NPCS (who hired the pcs) (brother/sister)
Grithnir - Dunedain Warrior (uses a fine sword of ancient Numenor make, probably from his father)
Morwen - Dunedain Warrior/Animist (prefers to use a fine bow)
Ashetar Noldor Elven Mage

PARTY
daddystabz-Dunedain Ranger
debo11-Telrian Noldor Elven Warrior
Maltar - Dunedain Scout (played by Kyanna)
Aldamir-Feadin (Animist)

Well feel better dude. I've heard nothing from our ranger in 2 weeks now. I pmed him, but no response.

So this might be a dead game with 2-3 major players out or non responsive.

Since I know debo is feeling under the weather and with no word from daddystabz and a midterm on Monday myself, I'm just going to postpone tonight's game and see if I can get a status update from everyone to see if I should continue or not.

If anyone would like to join, you're welcome to do so and that'll give me enough players to keep the campaign going with or without anyone dropping out of the current party. I have several openings for those interested in playing in Tolkien's Middle-Earth set in the early 4th Age.
