AND MANY MORE
In a fantasy role playing game, you become the main character in an adventure you create. With Angus McBride's Characters of Middle-earth your fantasy campaign will feature more than merely a mind's eye view of the famous and infamous characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's THE HOBBIT, and THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Twenty nine full-color plates (unmarred by text) bring these powerful individuals to life along with portraits of lesser known adventurers to be used by players in a Middle-earth game.
This volume describes individuals, both prominent and obscure, who roam Tolkien's world. Portrayed by Angus McBride for use by Gamemaster as PCs, each color plate is accompanied by a page of relevant text. A brief fantasy description of the action, a note on the setting, a description of the characters depicted, and full game statistics for the MERP and Rolemaster systems are included. These stats can easily be converted to most major FRP systems.
When Gandalf, the Witch-king or Galadriel arrives on the scene, Gamemasters will now havean illustration to display. And each playercan possess a full-color rendering of his or her character. As Marhic, flee Low Nose the Asdriag through the streets of seedy Strayhold. Combat a camel-mounted Silent One as Mairan of Greater Harad. Or hold your breath as Ehlissa when a dread Wraith looks your way.
