Ranger, probably. I'm looking at Thief and Warrior too, though. Thing is, I want that agility bonus but still to be a fighter.

Literally speaking I guess a Silvan could be an Adventurer, just that it would be REALLY unusual, as opposed to other Elves, where it would just be odd. Silvans really do have a reputation for being insular; obviously thst can change but that is what gameplay is for.

Still, if you really want it I'll allow it.

btw, the only part of this system that seems to be confusing people is the bonus to rolls by Profession, so I shall simplify a bit how that is noted.

Ok, changed. Now people making characgers don't have to add in bonuses if they do not want to-I'll just remember it. Only the base scores need to be totalled.

I can't wait for a couple more boosts in my combat skills, though.

So I understand that Noldor mage is already reserved?

Ush, what about a person from Harad who was taken as a hostage while he was only a child, and brought by Dunedains?

Actually, I'm a bit fuzzy about what type of Elf Palidan is. There's nothong to stop a double up.

What you describe- though I am not sure whose hostage it was and what you mean by 'brought'- would be a Human.

Well, you mentioned that people from south and east are forbidden, because they are mostly under the sway of Sauron, so I was wondering....

If you grew up in the West then you would have a Western template. if you grew up in the East or South you would be evil.

Oh, Elves, half elves, Dunadain... all that lot... note that I have corrected the 'Proficient' background. it's worth a whole lot more than one Spell choice now.

Slowly putting together the Spell bits. Added in the basics, and the Open Channelling Lists. Animist Channelling spells follows soon.

Time for Talin's background info, now that I've refreshed my knowledge of Middle-Earth!

-

Talin II Ironbeard is a Dwarf of the Longbeard clan, of Durin's line. A Dwarf of Erebor, Talin moved to the mines of Moria for personal profit, along with his father, Talin I Ironcap, and his brother, Burin. He pushed for an expedition to Darud-Mor, one of the abandoned Dwarf mines located where the Blue Mountains and Grey Mountains met. While the expedition proved successful and the mining resumed, Talin found himself without a proper market. After establishing contact with the Shire, he found himself a business partner in the form of William Took and traveled to Arthedain from Rivendell with a fellowship of Elves and Men. His goal was to convince the King to provide escort to the Dwarf-Hobbit trade lines between Darud-Mor and the Shire.

Talin is stout and hardy, like all males of his race. His beard is thick and brown, braided with gold bands. He wears finely-crafted Dwarf chain mail into combat, wielding a hefty axe, a gift from his cousin in Moria, as well as throwing axes and the longsword of a Rhudarian nobleman, found in his journey to Arthedain.
