SRD originally intended Second Chronicles to consist of four books, but was compelled by Lester Del Rey to do another trilogy. By the time the Last Chronicles was in the works, there was no longer a ...

I'd take Kevin's word over Foul's, anyday.

Foul never actually lies, though. He tells half truths, truths without context, truths the hearer isn't ready for or that he knows the hearer will mi ...

I've been thinking that the One Ring roleplaying game would be perfect for a game set in the Land.

It's got a great system for Journeys, which would map nicely to the Land; and it's got a mechanic ...

Also, "The Sword", I feel, encompasses more than sword-slinging. I think it's also about tactics and strategy and leadership in battle. An academically-inclined person might not be out of th ...

Let me try to think this through.
