    I really don't think that any additional picks are necessary. The races are already somewhat unbalanced, for one thing. Also, just because they take longer to reach maturity doesn't mean some races...

    Eh... I'm always leery of 'critical' systems and anything with a lot of tables. To me, the simplest way to make combat more dangerous to reduce the number of hit points and/or wound levels.

    The way I've always played this is that confronted with an obviously superior force or obviously beaten, orcs won't stick around to die. :) They're evil, sadistic, and primitive, but not without...

    I agree completely with TDK's suggestions. Not every Chronicle has to be a war chronicle. Similarly, even in a war chronicle, not every adventure has to be directly related to the war. Find something...

    One way to justify trouble in the Shire region is to start the campaign just as Halbarad's company of Rangers went south to join Aragorn for the battle of Pelennor Fields (early 3019). This would...
