The Hunt for Gollum Born of Hope Though i have yet to get to grips with the system myself i have heard only good things. It would be too cheesy unfortunately. The official Decipher website was http: This introductory game contains a page adventure narrative, a page guide to the lands and peoples of Middle-earth, an explanation of the basic principles of role-playing games, full-color character sheets that include pictures and game data describing each character, four full-color tactical maps for use in the major action sequences of the adventure, cut-outs of the characters and monsters in the adventure, and a poster map of Middle-earth. This apparently covered mainly typos and errors in the statistic blocks for the sample archetypes.

Races[ edit ] The character races available in the Lord of the Rings Roleplaying Game are: Dwarves Khazad : Short, stocky bearded folk, strong and hardy, able to endure pain, fatigue and suffering better than other races. Upon reaching maturity they appear old in a fashion that belies their hardiness. They often live in subterranean kingdoms, and have a great love of craftworks, especially things made of gold, silver, and mithril.
Elves Eldar : The oldest and wisest of races of Middle-earth, they are immortal, noble, and fair. They are naturally aware of many things that are hidden from the Younger Children.
They are divided into a number of particular kinds, primarily based on their course through Elven history. They are wise in Lore and Smithcraft, and created many Rings of Power. The Sindar or Grey Elves are those that heard the call, but stopped and chose to stay in Beleriand.
These are the more numerous kind of elf in the Third Age, and have great love of, and talent with, music and song. They have facility with wilderness skills. Hobbits : The signature race of Tolkien, these diminutive people are a distant relation to men.
They are good-natured, hospitable and easy going folk, two to four feet in height with hair covered feet. There are three major strains of Hobbits: Fallohides , taller, slimmer, fairer, and more uncommon than their fellows, they often have more facility with language, song, and craft, and have an unusual adventurous streak. Harfoots are the most numerous kind, and tend to be shorter and browner than others.
They are nimble with crafts, more friendly with Dwarves, and tend to stick to the custom of living in holes and tunnels. The Stoors are broader and sturdier and most numerous in Buckland. These are the only Hobbits who know anything about boating, swimming and fishing.
Men : The most familiar character race, these still come in several varieties available for player characters. These are typical Men. They are shorter, broader, darker of hair and eye, and duskier. Finally, there are Wild Men, who are short and squat and live rudely in the wild, though they carry their own nobility and powers. Classes[ edit ] The character classes available in the Lord of the Rings Roleplaying Adventure Game are: Barbarian : A warrior of the wilds who may lack some of the refined skills and weapons of other fighting men, but who make up for it with woodcraftiness and ferocity.
Lore-master: One wise in the lore of Middle-earth and who, though not a true caster of spells, can use some minor or subtle magics. Denethor, Elrond, Celeborn, and many Elves are lore-masters.
Magician : One who works magic and casts spells based on learned lore and wisdom but who is not nearly as powerful as a wizard. Mariner : A sailor, one who knows how to work and helm ships great and small over the wide seas and on the Great River.
Coastal Gondorians and the Corsairs of Umbar count many mariners among their number. Minstrel : A singer of songs, teller of tales, and a chronicler of brave and noble deeds. With his words and music, he can inspire others. Tom Bombadil, a mysterious character not only known for his love of song and dance, could likely be considered a member of this order.
Noble : A person who, due to birth, wealth, accomplishment, or the like, is regarded as of high rank in society, entitled to deference and respect from other folk. Characters such as Aragorn, Galadriel, Denethor and his sons, Elrond and his daughter Arwen, the Rohirrim Royal Family, and even Frodo belong, at least in part, to this order. Rogue : A person who lives and works with his wits and deft hands, often at questionable or outlawed pursuits.
He may be a spy for the Enemy, a professional treasure seeker, or simply one who prefers subtlety and guile to warfare and bloodshed. Bilbo, during his brief adventure with Thorin and company, became a member of this order. Warrior : People, such as guardsmen, soldiers, and archers, who are trained to fight with weapons. This is the most common order depicted in The Lord of the Rings, and it may likely be so in most chronicles as well.
