Twilight of the North: Fate Core in Middle-earth (Looking for player)

Basileus

We have room for one more in our new game starting in our Friday night gaming group. We play live online via Roll20, every other Friday, at 7:30 Central (though we're flexible on timing and this could change). Our planning session/"session 0" for this game is next week, Friday, January 20th.

OP campaign: https://twilight-of-the-north.obsidianportal.com/

Only requirements are that you be friendly, communicate well, and enjoy storytelling.

As mentioned, we haven't even created characters yet, but from what I've heard so far we'll likely have two dwarves, a rangerly Man, and an elf, so another human character would bring good balance to the group. Not picky on this point though.

    Hi, if you're still looking I'd love to join the game. I've never actually played the system you're using but I'm a quick learner. As for Middle Earth knowledge, well, the fact that I married a woman named Arwen should tell you about the in-laws and how they indoctrinated me into a Tolkien fan wink. They actually got me into roleplaying with MERP over 15 years ago.

    Please get back to me if you have a spot free.

    Hello,

    Do you guys still have room? I'd love to play if possible. FATE is my favorite system, I have a ton of experience with it, and I would love a chance to play in Middle-Earth. Please let me know. Thank you!

    I'll send you both invites, so you can access the forum discussion and calendar events. Note to all: this probably fills our roster for the time being.

    Generally, any race/culture that existed in the mid-Third Age (TA 1409) in Eriador, although if you wanted to play something more exotic (Southron or Easterling of some kind...) I'd have no problem as long as you had a reasonable background to justify how the character ended up in Eriador. Dunedain and Northmen (precursors to the Rohirrim) are probably the most common/easy to bring in. For more options/details, see the page on "Men":https://twilight-of-the-north.obsidianportal.com/wikis/men

    Mage should be fine - as always with Middle-earth and magic, the trick is how you flavor the magic to make it fit in the world.

    Our new cadence is 10th, 24th, 7th, etc... but half the group couldn't make tonight, so probably the 24th.

    Hi Tang,

     

    I just replied to your PM - sorry for the late reply, it looks like the forum PM system is separate from the main Obsidian Portal PM system, so I didn't see it until tonight.

    We're looking for one or two more players to fill out the group. We've had some trouble with not having a playable group when folks have to miss a night for whatever reason, so we haven't gotten too far into the story.

    We're currently at the "Fall of Amon Sul", with the Witch-King's forces moving against the Weather Hills, and the player group arriving with the assault on the watchtower underway.

    Our next session will be May 19th.

    I can say that Basileus runs great games, and I encourage anyone that has a Friday night gaming itch to try this out!
