About the adventure

Lord of the Rings: Adventures in Middle-Earth is a Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition game that takes place in the 60 years in between the events of The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring. The game is very low magic and has several new genealogies to play as. From region specific humans to esoteric and partial intangible elves. I would expect some knowledge and understanding of the world of Middle-Earth and it's lore but it is not completely necessary. However, I would like to make it clear that this game will not be mired in the lore and bogged down by idiosyncrasies. If you know who Arathorn is, good for you, it won't really help us have a grand adventure but having that info doesn't hurt! Most importantly the game is for fun and to enjoy the comfortable familiarity of Middle-Earth. The game itself is built on the bones of D&D 5e but introduces several new mechanics such as Corruption, Audiences, and the Fellowship Phase. The character Cultures are starkly different from 5e, there are no Tieflings, Dragonborn or Half-Orcs, unfortunately but they have been replaced with Duinedane, Bardings, and Beornings which are equally as interesting. There are also several "Cultures of Man" to play as well as Elves, Dwarves, and everyone's favorite, Halflings. If you are looking for something new and unique in a familiar setting then this game is perfect for that. Character Creation and The reason for the Adventure can be set during our session 0.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Mic required, webcam optional (we can discuss if we would like to use cams), an understanding of the rules of 5e and an overview of the rules of AoME. Access to Discord and Roll20 is required.

What I provide

I will be bringing maps for online play, access to PDFs of the AoME Players Handbook, knowledge of the world of Middle-Earth and Lord of the Rings and hopefully fun.

Gameplay details

The world of Lord of the Rings is archaic in the terms of the modern era. I will do my best to not espose this and help make each of your characters unique, and fun to play. The notions that races of creatures are born "evil" was sprung from this world but this is not something I will necessarily lean toward because as we all know the worst monster of all is man.

How will character creation work

We will have a session Zero so we can discuss your characters and why they are doing what they are doing. I will supply the book PDF prior to this game with time to look over the rules, cultures and classes.
