LotR NPCs[edit]

About those LotR NPCs you wanted to make... Please refrain from creating NPCs for LotR at this current time; the new 4.0 e will probably antiquate them, on the account of the fact that the base classes will change. The only exceptions to this are monster NPCs, who should be fine, but most of these are things such as Ancalagon the Black and Ungoliant (which I will do, being little known characters in Arda). However, feel free to help elswhere: various monsters need doing, and I would appreciate help with those, if you are willing to help (the rules are going to remain the same with the 1.0e that you have a copy of, with the exception of Uruks). Any help you wish to give with the creation of the monsters is much apreaciated. Thanks! --Sam Kay 13:16, 6 September 2007 (MDT)


Ok just give me a few monsters to work on and ill study and see what i can do. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ShadowyFigure (talkcontribs) 10:08, 7 September 2007 (MDT). Please sign your posts.

How about these ones;
  • Huorn
  • Spectre
  • Stone Giant
  • Vampire
  • Warg
  • Watcher
  • Watcher in the Water
  • Werewolf
  • Wereworm
  • Fell-beast1
  • Wolfhound
  • Wraith, Lesser
former winged beast
Their rules will remain the same (for now). If needed, we can alter them later...
Oh, the following categories should be placed on the bottom of the page (with the other categories):
[[Category:LotR Creature]] :[[Category:LotR Setting]]
The normal "back to" part of the page needs to be replaced with;
Back to [[Main Page]] → [[Dungeons and Dragons]] → [[DnD Campaign Settings|Campaign Settings]] → [[J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings (DnD Campaign Setting)|LotR]] → [[Creatures (LotR Supplement)|Creatures]].<br/> Back to [[Main Page]] → [[Dungeons and Dragons]] → [[DnD Creatures|Creatures]] → [[DnD CR 2 Creatures|CR 2]]. {{Legal Disclaimer (LotR Supplement)}}

Each page needs to end in:

, LotR (DnD Creature)

For example:

Warg, LotR (DnD Creature)

For special text (etc). I recomend copying and pasting it onto the page.

And just under the stats block, but above the combat heading, there should be;
{{LotR Background Information}}
All these things are essential. Feel free to send me a message if you are stuck. Thanks! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sam Kay (talkcontribs) 10:38, 7 September 2007 (MDT). Please sign your posts.


You wanted to know how to do a table? Here is the coding:

! Heading Column 1
! Heading Column 2
| 2 || 3
| 7 || 98
| 1 || 8
| 4 || 8
| 1 || 6

Will look like this:

Heading Column 1
Heading Column 2
2 3
7 98
1 8
4 8
1 6

! Heading Column 1
! Heading Column 2
| 2 || 3
|- class="even"
| 7 || 98
| 1 || 8
|- class="even"
| 4 || 8
| 1 || 6
|- class="even"

will look like this:

Heading Column 1 Heading Column 2
2 3
7 98
1 8
4 8
1 6

That Helpful? --Sam Kay 13:17, 24 September 2007 (MDT)

Charter Mage[edit]

I've starten an outline of the class in microsoft word that we can work on. I'll show you on monday. I won't put it here until we've finnished on it. --Sam Kay 09:52, 29 March 2008 (MDT)

Ok ShadowyFigure 09:52, 29 March 2008 (MDT)
Finished the class outline. --Sam Kay 10:54, 29 March 2008 (MDT)
ok. If you could send me it through school email that would be great. Also I have been looking at unearthed arcana and I suggest you have a look at the battle sorcerer varint. I think it could be useful as it shows quite a bit of balance. ShadowyFigure 02:04, 30 March 2008 (MDT)
The class is implemented here. --Sam Kay 10:35, 1 April 2008 (MDT)
Charter Mark List is ready for the marks to be added. --Sam Kay 11:03, 1 April 2008 (MDT)
I have made the changes required. The spell preload does not completely work yet, though. --Sam Kay 09:46, 3 April 2008 (MDT)

Monk Stuff[edit]

You seem to be interested in monk stuff so I thought I'd solicit your opinion on the two feats I created. Thanks in advance for any thoughts. --Calidore Chase 15:19, 30 March 2008 (MDT)

Librarian with Jump Pack[edit]

Try [1] for the librarian, and give it a jump pack. You could either mail order one, or get [2]. Alternativly, use [3] for the model and [4] for the weapon. --Sam Kay 06:54, 5 April 2008 (MDT)

Why not This and then buy a Jump Pack from Box This means I have to pay less and I know Bitzbox is a good place for separate parts. ShadowyFigure 07:59, 5 April 2008 (MDT)
Because [5] does not look as good as [6]. --Sam Kay 08:35, 5 April 2008 (MDT)
With the staff and book though how will I give him a Bolt Pistol n Force Weapon and will giving him the pack be easier. Thats what I can see. The one with sword and bolter require just pack. ShadowyFigure 09:30, 5 April 2008 (MDT)

Answer to Pain in the Ass Player Question[edit]

Dear ShadowyFigure: I am a game master of 22 years experience and offer some answers to your dilemma. It sounds like your friend was not very organized as a GM and is trying to act as a "back-seat-driver" for your campaign. If he was disorganized as a GM, he is likely disorganized as a player. Does he exhibit similar behavior outside of gaming? Do you hang out with him outside of gaming? This may speak to a personality issue with him. If he is otherwise pleasant to be around when not gaming then there is something in the game setting (not being GM, another player, lack of understanding of good gamesmanship, etc.) which is causing him difficulty. Please consider that the main reason ANYONE games socially (Monopoly, Scrabble, Snakes and Ladders, D&D, etc.) is to be SOCIAL. Other than professional poker players in Las Vegas, most of us get together to hang out with chums for FUN. This guy is ruining YOUR fun and possibly other players as well. Being GM means that you have taken on the SINGLE HARDEST JOB at the table, regardless of who is hosting the get-together. This also means that you get to ask those joining you to give you a break. So long as you are being FAIR and perhaps more importantly being CONSISTENT, then any rules adjudication on your part should be honored. The alternative, that he runs the game, hasn’t worked. You don’t mention anyone else stepping up to be GM, so that means you remain in charge of what happens in the game world. Some specific advice for dealing with your troublesome player:

  1. Check your own actions. If you are trying to be fair and consistent, then continue to be so. If you find you are angry or upset with him and lashing out at him, ask yourself why.
  2. Once you have checked yourself, then approach him out of game to speak directly about his behavior. Let him know that his outbursts and arguments are making it unpleasant for you and you would like him to stop.
  3. If you are uncomfortable approaching him directly, then state at the next game session to all the players that any rules questions in session will be answered by you at the time. Any questions or concerns afterwards can be raised once the game is over. Assure EVERYONE that you will try to resolve conflicts in the spirit of FUN, FAIRNESS, and CONSISTENCY. Acknowledge that you are not without fault but are asking for consideration for all the work you do to GM. Don’t gripe or whine but say that if GMing is more work than fun, it is hard for you to keep coming back session after session.
  4. You should do step 3 regardless of what step 1 and 2 resolve themselves to be. Then ask someone to help you with keeping track of rulings that get made in session. Offer extra XP for someone helping with these notes. You can also offload some GM duties occasionally by having a player run the opposition for a couple of encounters. Having a Player run the Drow Raider party (or what have you) can really make a combat challenging.
  5. Most importantly, keep up the good work. There are few of us willing to sit on the other side of the GM screen and create a world out of nothing for our friends. I want you to know that because of you, friends have fun, imaginations are stimulated, and I believe that in our own tiny way, we make the world a little bit nicer.

Please feel free to write me about how this works out for you. I have a wealth of resources I would be happy to point you towards if you are interested.

TES setting[edit]

As all the elder scrolls games are in the same world we are going to make one campaign setting for the whole lot of them. --Sabre070 19:30, 7 July 2008 (MDT)

About the Hashshashin's Death Attack...[edit]

Hi there,

So my DM is running a 3.5 game soon and I asked if I could use your Hashshashin class. He said sure, much to my delight.

After looking over the Hidden Blade weapon page, I noticed a small difference:

"A Hashshashin who Sneak Attacks an opponent who is unaware of him or is flat footed may make a Death Attack without studying the target."

Is this some sort of typo, or are there other conditions attached to this? On the Hashshashin's class page, you say that the target must be studied, but it sounds like you can make an instant Death Attack on the target on the Hidden Blade page. Which is right?

Thanks, Dark —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 16:46, 30 July 2008 (MDT). Please sign your posts.
