Hmmmmmm.....a monk in ME. That is a tough one. Well, you could simply drop the religious aspects of the monk class, and instead concentrate hand-to-hand (and some of the special abilities) aspects of the monk class. Whose to say that Elves and/or men didn't invent hand to hand combat techniques? Or, make a specific tribe of men (Woses? Beren/Woodman of Mirkwood? Bear transformation=a martial art?) who do not carry weapons.......

<i>Do you feel a Monk could somehow be introduced? Perhaps hailing from a southern or eastern culture? I should note that he is interested in the character class more for the martial arts disciplines, rather than any religious or holistic overtones.</i><BR><BR>> I haven't been able to check in here lately and sort of forgot about this, but what did you ever decide to do about your PC who wanted to play a Monk in MERP land, Barad-dur? I know I certainly agree with you about such a character-type being introduced into ME. Sounds kinda silly, really, but you never know what those peoples out in the east of ME are up to. Same goes with the southern regions of ME, around the court of Ardor. I suppose that would be the only way I would allow it; if your PC was willing to be from one of those locations. Of course, the PC must be ready to accept the consequences. I would think that most of the folk on western Endor (assuming that that is where your campaign will be based) wouldn't look kindly upon such a stranger and might harass him. It would also depend on the time period your campaign is set in.<BR><BR>As for the rules, well they are meant to be bent anyway <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> I still MERP myself and we never stick to ICE's rules, as they are needlessly complicated. I do like their Critical system, though. I guess we use a sort of combination of MERP rules and Rolemaster rules.

Hey there Cel32, <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>This is basically what ended up happening: the player in question was under the mistaken assumption that I was going to GM a campaign based in the 4th age. His reasoning for the character of the monk concept (hailing from a foreign culture to the west,) was that he wouldn't be as much of a stretch IF introduced in a time period already outside of the scope of Tolkien's published writings and 99% of the MERP material.<BR><BR>After I clarified that the campaign would be set around mid-third age (the preferred time period for most of the MERP material,) he completely agreed with my points and immediately discarded the monk idea. He has opted instead for a Wose rogue. The other player has chosen to play a Dunadan ranger and I have written up extensive backgrounds and a very detailed story as to how the two came to meet and are now about to embark on their first adventure together.<BR><BR>Sadly, all three of our personal schedules have conflicted thus far and we have not been able to play out first session yet. All three of us are part on an ongoing and longterm D&D campaign (which I also DM,) and that is our first priority as far as playing time availability.

Wouldn't that be nice, Gormegil! Man, I wonder how many times me and my fellow MERPers have joked around about that one throughout the years? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Most of the time, there was usually five of us as regulars. I used to jokingly tell a couple of them to divorce their wives so the five of us MERPers could all just rent a house together and just spend the rest of our lives in MERP-land! We could all just get jobs out at the airport or something (on the same shifts, of course) so we would all work the same schedule so it wouldn't foul up our MERP sessions! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Thank God none of them took me seriously!<BR><BR>Honestly, though, I remember back in the later high-school days and early college years when we used to get together in the summer and literally play for 6,7, even 8 hours at a time! No wonder I was always poor and broke! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Too bad about your campaign not able to start, Barad-dur. Anyone else got any other MERP sessions in progress right now besides me?

Well, I'm happy to report we finally got our first session in. It was very short as most of it was taken up by familiarizing ourselves with the all Rolemaster tables and rules quirks once again, but once we got rolling, it sure felt good to be back. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>The two players are currently working out of the Royal Rangers fortress at Iach Sarn under the command of Prince Minastir of Arthedain. They are on route through Cardolan, following the shores of the Baranduin and approaching the Eryn Vorn to investigate some dark rumours of the area.<BR><BR>For those in the know, I am working with the 'Raiders of Cardolan' and 'Woses of the Dark Wood' adventure modules.

Hmm, Well, I'm not familiar with either one of those two modules you mentioned, Barad-dur, but I wish I were. Those are two that I don't have. They must have been towards the end of the ICE era. I missed out on acquring some of the last ones, alas. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> However, I do own <i>Arnor</i>, which is very good!<BR><BR>It's funny you should mention the Eryn Vorn, as my character just recently came from there (in our on-line MERPing). My Sindar elf ventured in there and came across a Noldorin elf-maiden that had been trapped in the forest for well over a thousand years by an old Wose curse upon her. One of the ghosts of the old Wood-Wose keeps watch on her and does not want her to be released. There is a big long story behind it all, but I won't go into it now. She was ecstatic to see me and I (being the chivalrous lad that I am) foolishly swore an oath to her that I would not rest until I found a way to free her. That was about 3 years ago (in game time, of course). I recently went back to check on her and she was no longer very happy to see me, since she knew I hadn't succeeded in my errand yet. In fact she yelled at me for taking too long <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>So what sort of nasty things do you have planned for your characters in there, BD? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>

<i>So what sort of nasty things do you have planned for your characters in there, BD?</i> <BR> <BR>Well, for starters, they will be embroiled in a plot by the Witch-King to bring the Beffraen tribes of the Eryn Vorn under the yoke of Angmar. This will bring the characters into direct conflict with a group of pirates that raided one of the PC's home village in search of a rock called icronite. These stones, used in Wose rituals, can also be used by the Petty-dwarves of the dark wood to raise undead spirits and bind them to their will. With this power in hand, the pirates and the dwarves (in the employ of Angmar,) hope to cow the Beffraen into joining the ranks of the Warlord of Creb Durga in Cardolan, and striking against the Dunedain from the south. <BR> <BR>They will also be involved in bringing to justice the False Cennaigh, another puppet of the Witch-King who is a pretender to the Dunnish throne of Saralainn. He is operating in the area and is also trying to garner support for his cause among the Beffraen.

I have also started running a MERP game for my current game group. I have decided to start simple since they have never played (and I have not run it in 6 years). I am running the Castle in the Woods adventure from the core book and I started everyone at second level.<BR><BR>I have the following characters:<BR><BR>Rian - Female Dunadan Explorer (as a funny side note, I used the chart for how effective Athelas is to determine her family line and the player rolled 99 and then 89 which places her as a member of the royal family so I made her the only daughter of Galiraen, one of King Argeleb II's dead older sisters.)<BR>Caranel - Female Silvan Elf Conjuror<BR>Daeron - Male Sindar Elf Ranger<BR>Grim Iron-Eye - Male Dwarf Civilian (Blacksmith)<BR><BR>Should be an interesting adventure.

Sounds like fun, Mitheradan! Good luck getting yourself reacquainted with the MERP rulebook. I have always found them a bit needlessly complicated. We actually use a combination of MERP rules and our own.<BR><BR>That's a very interesting scenario you have come up with, Barad-dur! I would very much like to know how your campaign progresses. Drop by every now and again to give us some progress-reports <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I always enjoy hearing what others are up to in their MERP adventures!<BR><BR>As for my Sindar elf, I still have yet to free that elf-maiden trapped by the Wose-curse in the Eryn Vorn. I don't currently have a powerful enough blade that will harm the undead Wose right now, so I teamed up with some men of Tharbad (deffinately not my first choice) and we went into the ruins of Ost-in-Edhil to try and make some money, but were chased out by some sort of elf-spirit or something. He cursed us for trespassing on the Eldar's holy ground, so we got the heck out of there after he started throwing fireballs at us! Now we have resorted to going up into the Trollshaws with the hopes of looting a Troll-hole. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif"border=0>

Thought I would bump this by seeing if any of you have been MERPing lately. Hmm? I have still been doing my MERP by e mail, but was wondering if any of you have been active as of late. What about you, Barad-dur? Anymore interesting tales for us from the campaign you were running a while ago?

Unfortunately.......no. You would think with the films there would be a big "push" or "rush" for some MERP RPG'ing, but no such luck for me. Though, I do have some people interestined in AD&D.....the "hack and slash" variety. No deep story....yet?<BR><BR>Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.......<BR><BR><i>DM: ".....amoungst the treasure of the dragon you have just slain, you find a gold ring.

Hiya, Dindraug <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Well, there's at least one person out here still MERPing, though I mainly do it over the internet nowadays, since our old MERP team have long since moved away to different states....Presently I am playing a Sindar elf in the mid Third Age, a few years after the Balrog took over Khazad-dum and slew Durin. We still use a lot of the MERP rules and all, but mixed in with our own rules, as ICE's MERP rulebook is needlessly complicated, IMO. Recently, my character escaped from the mines of Mt. Gundabad and is being chased around Wilderland by several teams of northmen bounty-hunters, who were hired to capture me and bring me back in to Maethelburg, where the mayor there is corrupt and is in league with the orcs of Gundabad. Seems I am wanted back by one of the orc-priests because my elf has the ability to embed spells and powers into items/weapons....I fled into Mirkwood to evade capture recently and am now, of course, hopelessly lost <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Speaking of the downfall of Cardolan, I am now working on an epic of that very subject which I am posting up gradually in the Scriptorium Forum. I have been working on it for about a year now. It's called "The Rise and Fall of Calimendil, Fifth King of Cardolan". I could always use feedback, though I warn you it is very lengthy (and I am only half finished with it!). There are a few names of places and people that fellow MERPers might recognize in it <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>

Hi Celeb, read your thread and like it. Really nicely done.<BR><BR>Gives me ideas for one of my own, maybe a response to your text, written post 1409 by some minister who survives the slaughter at the barrow downs. Ostophar (?) Last King of Cardolan...Ok, so this is long term planning but it would be a good challange.<BR><BR>I know what you mean about the complexity of MERP. I made the rash decision of using ICE rolemaster rules just to make things more realistic. Detracted is a better word <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>Like the sound of your campaign as well. I led a party into Mirkwood once, they were lost for a year, and eventually came out not near Framsburg where they thought they were, but in front of an abandoned (at the time) Dol Guildor. Fun, hunting spiders to eat <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Thanks Dindraug <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> It's nice to know that there are at least a couple people out there reading my tale. I'm afraid the length of it might put some folks off, but that's the way it goes. Mainly, I am doing this for myself, to see of I could write an epic the size of, for example, "Aldarion and Erendis", which I have sort of used as my model. I absolutley love that tale from the UT book!....I also think you have the beginnings of a good idea for a story. Actually, I had orignially thought of making my tale during the T.A. 1409 war, but changed my mind later, as I decided I didn't really want to write a full-scale war epic. So I placed the action about 100 years before that. Is Ostophar a name you came up with or does Tolkien mention him? <BR><BR>I think some of the bounty-hunters that are hunting me are from Framsburg! I am trying to hide form them inside Mirkwood, but I am out of food, and every time I shoot a deer or other such animal and cook the meat over a fire I draw unwanted attention from fierce animals and even orcs. A large bear was about to maul me, so I surrendered the carcass to him <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0> At this rate my character will die of starvation before the b-hunters get me!

Ostopher is the King mentioned in the MERP suplement 'Cardolan'. I wasn't sure if you had it or not. You may get it on e-bay. Oh, and Tharabad is also excellent and would be useful for your tale. I think he is made up, but could be referenced in a very obscure place in the 'Histories'. Good supliment though, but I was spelling from memory and that is always dangerous.<BR><BR>I once met a bear in MERP, ran into a hornets nest (random encounter), where the bear was stung, took a tiny crit E etc etc, basically killed the bear then flew off allowing us to botch the skining bear roll. ICE gave us so much entertainment with those tables <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0><BR><BR>

Funny tale, Dindraug <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <BR><BR>Ostopher! Yes, now that sounds familiar. I do indeed own the Cardolan campaign module (both the older one and the one released later with additional info entitled: "Arnor"<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>. It's a great ME supplement, no doubt! It is one of the best ones, IMO. I also have the Tharbad module. To tell you the truth, I used the map layout of the city in that module as the basis for my own description of Tharbad in my story. I also 'borrowed' the name of Calimendil and a few other things from the modules, but altered them to suit my own purposes.<BR><BR>I should get on Ebay eventually and see what other ICE modules that are for sale that I am missing. Ones that I would really like to get are: <i>Mt. Gundabad</i>, <i>Shelob's Lair</i> and <i>Dagorlad and the Dead Marshes</i>. You have any of those? The module I was perhaps most dissappointed with was <i>Moria</i>. That could have been done so much better than it was.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> However, the absolutely best part of all the modules are Peter Fenlon's superb fold-out color maps!! They're indispensible.

I have all three of your missing modules. Dagorlad is very good indeed, a lot of fun to use. <BR><BR>The others are ok, I think Shelobs lair always felt to much like a dungeon bash, it was straight out of the books (natch) but was just not right. Did you ever get the Minas Ithil suppliment? It felt like that, just slightly ...wrong. I know what you mean about Moria as well. I am sure the origional plan was to have two books, but the second never appeared or not over here anyway.<BR><BR>The two I missed out that I really should get are the Kin Strife and Dorwinnion/Laketown ones. Must scour e-bay.<BR><BR>And the maps, they really were superb. I show them to new convertees and there is always a bit of a stunned silence<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Nope. Never got a hold of the Minas Ithil supplement. I have a couple rare ICE adventure modules, though. Remember <i>Rogues of the Borderlands</i>? I have that one, but never got around to using it. I also still have the very first ICE MERP module, <i>The Court of Ardor</i>. One of the sillier modules, IMO, was <i>Rivendell</i>. What the heck can you do there, anyway?? <BR><BR>I have never even heard of the Kin-strife or Dorwinion modules. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif"border=0> I would love to have a module of the Rhûn area, though. Let me know if you find it on Ebay and how much it is going for. <BR><BR>One of my favorites is still <i>Gorgoroth</i>. The only problem with it is that it is mainly geared around the late Third Age. I think it would be suicide to attempt to enter Gorgoroth at that time. ...I am currently GMing my brother on a campaign in northern Nurn, T.A. 1409. He and his party are trying to make their way to Ostigurth to investigate rumors of suspected hostile activity in southern Gorgoroth as one of the last of the scouting parties that king Valacar of Gondor financed before Gondor at last neglected their watch upon Mordor.

I still have my Tharbad suppliment. I had three campagin ideas: a) a third age "haunted city" type of adventure campaign with the players looking for loot; b)The PC's explore Tharbad in helping the White Council search for knowledge of the Ring/Sauron; c)a Forth Age campain where King Elessar/Aragorn sends the PC's to "retake" Tharbad and rebuild it as a stronghold for Gondor.

Sorry, keep losing posts today.<BR><BR>The Kin Strife was a module that came out just before ICE went under. It was fun, if a bit preprogrammed, but good background for the events of 1432 (?). Likewise Dorwinnion was one of the later modules, with the shire and Northern waste (one of the best they did) that appeared just before the films were anounced and everybody lost the gaming contracts. You can still get them on occasion in the old 'end of run' bins at conventions and shops. V. Good though.<BR><BR>The court of Ardor <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> LOL, um, forgotten that one. Fun <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-devil.gif"border=0><BR><BR>And you are right, Gororoth is superb.

Yes,<BR><BR><BR>Gorgoroth was cool. If I remember correctly, there were a series of "little" castles or outposts near the Great Marshes that were manned by agents of Sauron. One of which was a female "sorcreress" or Necromancer. I can't remember which. I believe my White Council party were captured by her snooping around the northern confines of Mordor on some mission and had to escape....

Your thinking of Dagorlad Gormegil. That was a good module.<BR><BR>Gorgoroth had the ring of castles around the plain, and Northern Nurn. It was really well done, especially as it did three periods, the Gondorian, the abandoned late third age and the War of the Ring. It was nicely balanced, not filled with overly powerful bad guys which was always the failing of MERP modules.
