    The One Ring: Trouble in Bree

    The year is 2973 of the Third Age.

    Bree has always been at the crossroads of events in these parts, but rumours come to the inn. Rumours of dark things happening beyond the borders of Breeland. Now this may not concern some, as longs as trouble don't come to Bree itself. But there's them Rangers, bringing trouble where it's not wanted, and others too. Dwarves going back and forth along the road to who knows where. Strange men too, from the south. Trouble in Bree is coming, mark my words. Trouble is coming.

    I'm looking to start a game of The One Ring centred on Bree, and the region of Middle-earth known as Eriador.

    Cultures: Dwarf of Blue Mountains, Hobbit (Shire/Bree), Men of Bree, Rangers of the North.

    I'd like to get characters from players before the scheduled first session, so that we can look at introducing the characters and getting on with the game. The best mechanism for building up a character is through Azrapse's character builder for The One Ring, which guides people through the character building process.

    Interested players, please introduce yourself via PM and send me a copy of the code from the character builder via PM (in a code tag) or on the Discord text channel (link in the game channel GM Announcements).

    New players are welcome. Please let me know if you need help building a character via PM.

    The Prancing Pony is more likely to look like this.

    The game is afoot!

    A stranger with an unrecognizable accent comes to the Prancing Pony for help with a family member in trouble. The group goes right to work to find her cousin a farmhand's job, since idle hands get one in trouble...




    ...but she pulls out a map to show that she means travel far to the north...




    After a day's journey northward on the Greenway, and a night under the stars outside Trestlebridge, the Companions discover ruins in the hills, which Ben Wormroot claims to have heard that the Rangers said they remembered that people used to believe that the ruins might have been an old kingdom that they say they used to be kings of. Based on that reliable report, Fenwick gracefully scales down the stairs and discovers underground rooms--the lower floors of an old mansion. Robin Briarwood and Ben Wormroot join Fenwick below while Hob Boffin bravely guards the baggage above. The passages below are strangely filled with cobwebs, which turn out to have been spun by enormous spiders! Fenwick hurls a spear and the battle is on...

    Shots of today's action:

    The Companions rescue a dwarven trader from bandits by scaring them off. The dwarf, a Blue Mountains craftsman named Jari, joins the group.




    The Companions find the bandit hideout, Ost Alagos, and count more than two dozen persons there. Campfires are counted and approaches mapped out.




    The approach is made around the rear, and after much debate, the hobbit drugs the guards with an herbal mixture that puts them to sleep.




    The Companions infiltrate undetected, and Hwalda finds her cousin at the central fire, seemingly seeing through the eyes of a grey wolf that wandered the ruins even as she stayed stationary. Her cousin has been found--and Robin and Fenwick prepare to make the approach!
