Please tell me that Men of Leng, etc. are not becoming "persons of Leng" or some other politically correct term.  I'm in on the KS for the new edition of The One Ring and they dropped the alpha rules today and people are actually whining because "Men of Bree" is a culture, as opposed to calling them "Bree-folk," or some other supposedly more progressive & inclusive term. 

 The Evil cannot create just corrupts.

I've been using that setting for my own campaign (sadly my group does not like the THAC0 system, and I had to switch to our old homebrew system.)

We resolve this issue when we have our first Atlantean PC, a recessive genetic adaptation to low metablism and mioglobine usage (meaning an interracial offspring would never develop that ability hence the "reproductive incompatibility"), just like most of amphibious mammals, and we have an earthly tribe developing those traits, the Sea Nomads in Polinesia.. In game terms, they got a +8% to CN checks when swimming and 2x time underwater. All other rules about swimming and drowning apply.

Look at Odin's crows, and Morgan from Celtic myths. For Rel, think on tricksters...

Alright, pals, thank you for all the lols.. I have to say we got stuck on Palladium Books combat system since we played Rofts for almost ten years. It was very hard for most of my group going back to Descending AC. I'll keep this system in order to see how to make their thick skulls to get in to the idea.

In my group we switched to Ascending AC, and they we turned it into an "Defensive Bonification"... We roll our DB+1d20 against the attack roll. Any words of counseling?

I've been working on a Corruption system for magic users, and since priests use power form otherworldly entities, could they be suffering the same consequences?

Considering one level from one to six could be equal to one year of life, and one level from seven to twelve could be two years each... 12 level as an adventurer, starting at 15yo, and you'll be an old and seasoned legend at 33yo, with a life span of 45 years?

We use this method... sharing 78 points among the attributes.. Usually, you could get something like 18, 16, 14, 12, 10 & 8, or 13, 13, 13, 13, 13, 13.
