Frothing Dwarves are best avoided


The second chapter of the great Warhammer Saga is drawing to a close; whilst our demonic dagger is down its definitly not yet defeated. Whilst we are loking forward to a jolly epilogue where we slap each other on the back and pose for a group photo, there is a little more to be done. Having dug out the last adversary she narrowly missed the full force of a beserk Dwarf and managed to slip away under her fate point. I suspect we may see more of her in the next chapter. Neverthless, one exorcism ceremony in a graveyard and then its home for tea. We shall see I daresay.


If there are people out there thinking about coming back to the club on a more regular basis then now is a good time as the Song of Ice and Fire will restart and also, depending on numbers another game will begin -Ive offered an episodic Stargate if people cant commit to a regular slot or I have a Middle Earth adventure if there are enough regular people. Other GMs may also have something they would like to run so watch this space for a decision soon.
 

 
I have a long history with the Middle Earth as it was really reading Lord of the Rings that kept me out of trouble as a teenager so the RPG was an instant fix for me. I later got into the more administrative Rolemster, it's bigger brother, but somehow managed to absorb it all. My preference these days for a LotR is to use the core book and some of the Rolemaster books as options - the Arms Lore and Spell Lore and some of the RMC character classes. A pure LotR can be a little dry I find but additional options can make it much more enjoyable without cannabalising in the original legacy too much. I wonder if JRRT would have had time to write it if he had got into roleplaying first...

  1. Just as well you didn't post the naked dwarf picture, otherwise we would have needed a disclaimer on the website!
