LOTR: The Last Alliance of Elves and Men

We played Sauron vs. The assembled elves and humans last night. The heroes on the side of good were Isildur, Elendil, Gilgalad and Elrond. We didn’t have a Sauron figure, so… well, you’ll see.

LOTR: Tutorial Shenanigans

Hey all! James introduced me to the LOTR war game recently. He ran me a little tutorial session in which I had to rescue a bunch of besieged elves and humans with Isildur. All the Numenoreans died… Racist elves…

Today’s episode of D&D is just a one hour one-off, in which James improvises a little quest for me so I can create my first uncommon magical item, the Robe of Useful Items. Combat-light, I really enjoyed this one! Here’s what ended up on the robe:

2x dagger
2x bullseye lantern
2x steel mirror
2x 10-foot pole
2x 50-foot rope
2x sack
a riding horse with saddlebags
a silver coffer worth 500 gold
a 24-foot long wooden ladder
20 gems worth 100 gold each
a portable ram
a 10-foot cubed pit
a 10×10-foot iron door
a 2×4-foot window
