This game is about roving over the lands of Middle Earth.  Details will be expanded upon once all the players are assembled for the game.  In part, we need to determine what kind of game/adventure all of us are interested in playing.

The game is primarily The One Ring game system, set in Rhovanion.  In the early stages, we will not be adding supplemental material or unusual characters.

Player Requirements

1. This game will be rated mature, per the RPOL standards.  The intent is to keep the tone of Tolkien's works.

2. Players don't necessarily need to have The One Ring game system, though of course that will make playing much easier.  If you do not have it, you'll need to be willing to have your hand held and take recommendations/instructions readily.

3. Keeping the game moving requires regular posting. Please commit to 3 posts per week. Absences are allowed, and it's understood that Real Life happens; particularly during combat I prefer to try to maintain at least 1 round/day -- if you can't keep up with that, it's okay, as long as you don't mind your character going on autopilot to prevent the game from bogging down.

4. A writing sample is preferred prior to be admitted to the game.

5. While some reasonable disagreements are fine, the goal will be to have a cohesive party of the free peoples.  Characters that are overly fond of betrayal, or even dedicated loners will really not have a place in this fellowship.

Items to include in your RTJ:

What is your experience with Middle Earth/Tolkien's works?  (required)

What is your rpg experience, both generally, and online/rpol?  (required, but just for information)

Do you have access to the The One Ring game system?  What is your experience with it?  (required, though this is not necessarily a deal breaker)

What has your experience been role playing in Middle Earth?  (required)

Do you have a desired character type you'd like to play?  (optional)

Is there a general type of plot or game theme you'd prefer?  (optional)

That's it, for starters -- this is my first TOR game I've run, so I'm learning this as I go along as well.

Please Note!

Just for fun, and because I get bored with adding people as "player1, player2"  etc, as you get added, you'll get named after one of Thorin and Bilbo's companions.

Not to worry!  This is just temporary, until we get your character created!
