This document was cr eated to aid and hopefully make easier
character creation in my MERP campaign. By bringing together
rules from the basic rule book, optional rules from various compan-
ion books, house rules and information from ICEs campaign
modules together in one place for easy reference by all.
Char acter Creation is primarily geared to campaigns set in the
mid Third Age (1007 - 2014); specifically campaigns set in the year
1640 T.A., the time of I.C. E. `s Middle-earth campaign modules
and adventures. Any diff erances and changes will be noted in the
text.
Some standard Professions, tr aining packages and spell lists
fr om the RMSS have been modified; some more than others. Where
this has happened, it will have MERP in brackets after the
standard name. e. g. , Shaman Priest (MERP). This has no bear ing
on the game, it is just a r eference to make it obvious when
something has been tinkered with.
N.B. the costs of all training packages have been adjusted and
are not the same, as those given in the rule books.
To make full use of the information contained within, you need
access to : -
Rolemaster Standar d Rules, Spell Law, Arms Law,
Castles and Ruins, Treasur e Companion, Mar tial Ar ts
Companion, The Armory, Essence Companion, Mentalism
Companion, any of the Middle- earth modules by ICE.
C^lCOl^1lCN CCNVCN1lCN:
When making calculations and using formulae the results often
do not come out evenly.
You should maintain f ractions until you come up with a final
result that will be used in play.
But whenever a f inal result has a f ractional remainder, it is
always rounded off the nearest whole number. (i. e., fractions above
or equal to 0. 5 are rounded up; fr actions below 0.5 ar e r ounded
down.)

Before beginning to design a char acter, you should make a
general decision as to what type of character you want to play. This
decision should concern your char acter s profession, race, physical
and mental attributes.
CH^k^C1Ck DC:lN :OOO^k
To design your character, you should per form each of the
following steps. Keep in mind that these steps are inter related and
may aff ect each other.
1) Decide in general what type of character to play.
2) Chose a culture and race for your character.
3) Chose a profession for your char acter.
4) Determine your characters realm of power.
5) Determine your additional spell lists.
6) Generate tempor ary stats for your character.
7) Generate potential stats for your character.
8) Determine your characters background options.
9) Develop your characters adolescence skills.
10) Develop your character s apprenticeship skills and training
packages.
11) Determine your characters background.
12) Determine your characters role traits.
13) Outfit your character.
14) Total your characters penalties and bonuses.
o
To begin designing your character you must make four choices
that define your character : race/cultur e, profession and r ealm of
power.
DC1CkOlNlN k^CCCOl1OkC
There are a variety of culture/r aces that you may choose f or
your character. A two page description appear s on the following
pages.
Culture/Races for Third Age 1640 Campaigns:
Note: For campaigns in other er as consult the Race/Culture
availability table for an idea of which cultures can be used.
Once the r ace ( and culture) has been chosen, you should record
it on your character recor d sheet. You should also record any stat
bonuses, r esistance r oll bonuses and special abilities due to
race/culture.
iH:lC^l ^iiC^k^NCC
Your culture/race will deter mine certain facets of your physical
appearance. The individual culture/race descriptions give standard
physical appearance guidelines for each r ace and culture.
l^NO^C:
The languages that your character knows ar e given in the
culture/r ace descriptions. You recor d the skill r anks for these
languages during the adolescence skill development process.
DC1CkOlNlN ikCC::lCN
At this point you must chose a pr ofession and record it on your
Character record Sheet. Some professions are r estr icted by cul-
ture/race; as noted with the culture/race descriptions.
Ther e is a one page, detailed description of each prof ession on
the following pages.
1HC ikCC::lCN:
Each character must have a pr of ession. Your character s
pr of ession reflects the fact that his early tr aining has molded his
thought patterns, ther eby affecting his ability to develop certain
skills and capabilities. A profession does not prohibit the develop-
ment of skills, it merely makes some skills har der and others easier
to develop. Any character can develop any skill in Rolemaster.
Note: Your realm determines determines your realm
stat: Em for Essence, I n for Channelling, and Pr for
Mentalism. Hybrid users use the average of their two
realmstats as their realm stats.
iklOC :1^1:
Each pr of ession has zer o, two, or three stats which are that
professions prime stats. When you generate your temporary stats,
90s must be assigned to these stats.
PLAYER OPTION: you can choose to assign stats as you
wish.
ikCC::lCN hCNO:C:
Each profession has a number of profession bonuses that apply
to certain skills and skill categories.
DC1CkOlNlN kC^lO C
iCuCk
You should choose a realm of power at this point. This is
automatic for pure, hybrid and semi spell users. Non spell users
however must choose a realm of power: Essence, Channelling, or
Mentalism.
DC1CkOlNlN ^DDl1lCN^l h^:C
ll:1:
In addition to his nor mal six base spell lists, each pure spell user
must choose f our additional base spell lists. These lists must be
chosen fr om the evil, open or closed lists for that spell user s realm
of power.
:iCll ll:1 ^V^ll^hlll1
Only the Base Spell Lists of the allowed professions, open and
closed spell lists f rom Spell Law ar e available. The evil spell lists
from Spell Law ar e available for those who wish to walk on the
dark side.
The Arcane realm is not used in Middle- earth; ther efore none of
the Arcane spell lists can be taken.
Spell lists can only be learnt to a maximum of 10th level (this is
the height of magical knowlege in the mid-Third Age) ; unless a
Talent or Flaw specif ies differ ent. See the Chapter Concerning
Magic to find a more detailed discussion.

CULTURES AND RACES
The inf ormation is intended to serve as a guideline for equip-
ping and developing both player char acters and power ful or
other wise significant non- player characters. The outfitting options
and the background options have been generated to enhance the
process by which living peoples are translated into a game system.
An individual character may str ay fr om the norms of his
cultur e/race. A GM may decide to allow a character to possess a
weapon typically not f avour ed by his culture/r ace, to learn a
language usually of little general interest, etc. How much deviation
f rom the norms is to be allowed is up to the GM. And when a
character does not f ollow the norms, the GM needs to include
plausible reasons for the differences in the character s personal
history and background.
Player s developing their characters should follow the normal
procedure for outf itting and utilizing background options described
in Section 14. Where dice rolling is required (talents, special items,
extra money), the inf or mation below should be inserted into or
paired with Table T1.5.
Remember that adventuring char acters will come into contact
with peoples and cultures unknown to them in their f ormative years.
A Hillman warrior might speak only the Dunael and the Westron
upon leaving his native lands and carr y only his f ishing spear. Six
months later (possibly second or third level) , he may have picked
up a smattering of Quenya and be wielding a long kynac!
Sometimes a skill is listed that is not a standard skill. When this
occurs, the skill category will be given in br ackets after the skill
name.
Du^kVC: ,N+ca|.l
The Dwarves are descendants of the Seven Fathers, the original
lords crafted from stone by the Vala Aul. He is the Smith of the
Valar, the giver of mountains and master of cr afts, and the Dwarves
call him Mahal (Kh. Maker) . Their seven lineages or houses
settled in separate areas, but always in or by the mountains. All
Dwarves consider mountains sacred.
They wer e created first, but Eru forced his servant Aul to
delay their awakening until after the coming of the Elves. Following
their birth at seperate locations beneath the Iron Mountains dur ing
the First Age. they began to explore ther e new land, finding things
of beauty. Dur ing these wander ings some of the tribes choose to
settle in wondorous homes beneath the heights of middle- earth;
whilst other s travelled on in search of greater gifts. The seven
Dwarven kings quarreled over territory and the paths they should
take in quest of fairer places to reside. Thus, the kindreds went there
own ways.
Although these Seven Tribes have since spread acr oss Middle-
earth, they have remained and have spawned a universal reputation
for r uggedness, practicality, and unwavering loyalty. Most groups
favour the rocky highlands and deep caverns of the mountains, for
the Dwarves, perhaps more than any race, remember their or igin
and heritage. They are superior craftsmen and they love to mine the
earth f or precious gems and metals to forge into weapons of
str ength and artifacts of beauty and power.
OCN ,H||:eal
Men were the secondborn and first arose in the Far East dur ing
the First Age. There, in a land called Hildrien, they awoke to find a
wild continent and it was sometime before they first encounter ed
the Firstborn, or Elves. It was Elves who gave them the name
Hildor (El. Follower s) , although they are now more commonly
called by the Quenya Atani or Sindarin Edain (Second People).
Men diff er fr om the Elves in many ways, the least subtle of
which is their Gift of Death. Men are mortal and live their br ief
lives with a fire and passion unlike any other race. They ar e also
var ied and often f lawed and vulnerable. Unlike the Firstborn, they
are quite susceptible to disease and temperature extremes. At the
same time, however, they rarely weary of life.
There are two greater groupings of Men: the High Men, who
are commonly called Edain; and the Common Men, who did not
ally themselves with the Elves in the wars against Morgoth. Some
speak of the Nor thmen as a thir d gr oup, middle men who are
racially close to the Edain, but did not benefit fr om any contact or
alliance with the Elves.
Blessed by their faith in Eru and his Vala servants, the Adan line
is special. High men are exceptionally large averaging 63" to 67"
and weighing 200 to 275 pounds. Their great bones and musculature
gives them a grand appearance; only Noldor Elves rival their
strength. They are not as nimble or resilient as the Elves, however.
The hair of Dnedain is dark brown or coal-black - their eyes blue,
grey, or black - and they tend toward fair skin. Those of pure blood
live as long as 250-300 years.
Common Men are more numerous and less blessed. Stocky and
relatively shor t (5 to 64") , they have pr oduced a wide variety of
types. Their hair and skin colours vary fr om the deepest brown and
blacks to the lightest shades of blond and cream. Unlike the
Dnedain, many wear beards and moustaches. Fr om their r anks
come the vast majority of Middle-earths mannish lines.
ClVC: ,Cc..:|l
Elves were the f irst to awaken and venture onto Middle-earth.
They are a gr aceful and noble r ace of immortal beings who
resemble men, but shine with an inner glow which betrays the spirit
of unique thoughts and gif ts. No r ace has been blessed with mor e,
or cursed so much by the hand of fate.
Though basically similar to mortal men in most ways, Elves
have several important, if subtle, dif ferences. As a r ace, they are
taller than Humans but they are uniformly slender and have less
body hair. Elven men have no f acial hair, f ine features and un-
mar red shin combine with spar kling eyes to give the Elf an
enchanted aura. Astrange deftness and ease of movement give them
a graceful quality and it is not surprising that they are ver y agile and
so light afoot; they leave few tr aces of their passing and can walk
on the surface of freshly fallen snow.
The Elves rever e the Valar and many know their nature well.
Still, they have no formal religion; instead they show their respect
through poetr y and song and gather to celebrate lif e and the gifts
from on high. This respect for the way of things is largely tied to
their acceptance of their close ties to the Fate set down in the Song
of Cr eation, although much of it also stems from an understanding
and joy regarding the cr eations of nature which have been handed
down and overseen by the Valar. Above all but Eru they worship
var da, Queen of the Valar and the f airest of all creations. She is the
br inger of light and they call her Lady of the Stars (Elentr i or
Elbereth)
Ther e are two major groupings of Elves in Middle-ear th. Their
split in the early First Age for ms the basis for the development of
two separate Elven cultures. The most exalted group is the Eldar,
the thr ee kindr eds ( Nolder, Vanyar, and Teler i) which made the
Gr eat Journey across Middle-earth during the First Age. Most
settled for a time in Aman (the Undying Lands), or along the shore
of now sunken Beleriand. Only the Noldor and Sindar ( a group of
Teleri) remained in middle-earth following the War of Wrath that
ended the First Age. All other folk are called Avari or Silvan Elves.
They are commonly called Wood-elves.
Fr om these cultures came the three groups which form the
Elven races of Middle-ear th: (1) the Noldor, (2) the Sindar, and (3)
the Silvan Elves.

Originally bred by Morgoth in the First Age, these creatur es
quickly became servants of Darkness; it is likely that they were not
inherently evil, but were culturally and mentally predisposed toward
the foul life. Legend has it that their ancestors were Elves who
were twisted in mind and body by the Black Enemy. Bred as
labourers and warriors, Orcs respect little but brute force. They live
in tr ibal units with a strong leader, each tribe has its own dialect.
Goblin is a term used by some Westron speakers when they discuss
Orcs.
1kCll: ,1.a.l
Trolls are huge, f oul creatures. Like Giants and Ents, Tr olls
comprise one of the so called Giant Races. Their exact or igin is
clouded, but they belived to have been contrived by Morgoth
during the Elder Days by r emaking captured Ents and imbuing them
with the natur e of the fiery stone from the Underdeeps.
Trolls hate all other creatur es, a legacy of Morgoths dark touch.
By nature they pr efer to remain solitary or in small gr oups. Even
their br ethren ar e consider ed potential enemies. As creations
Morgoth, all Trolls are vulnerabable to Saur ons influence.

Durin, father of the Longbear ds awoke
beneath the I ron Mountains. Wandering
south, Dur in and his folk founded Khazad-
dm (Moria). Disaster struck in T.A. 1980;
and in T. A. 1981 the longbeards star t 18
years of wondering until the founding of
Erebor; followed by their expansion into the
Ered Mithr in (S. Grey Mountains). The
delvings in the Grey Mountains awaken the
dragons, and they ar e driven back to Erebor.
Some travel on and found homes in the Iron
Hills. I n T. A. 2770 Erebor is laid waste and those dont goto the
Iron hills spend 171 years wandering; until Er ebor is reclaimed.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Short, stocky, strong, with exceptionally strong limbs. Males
average 150 pounds; females, 135 pounds.
Colouring: Black, red, or dark brown hair. Fair complexion.
Endurance: Tremendous. They can carry great burdens over long
distances with little rest. +21 to exhaustion points.
Height: Males average 49; females 45.
Lifespan: 200-400 years.
Race Abilities: Khazad.
Resistance: Resistance against flame and ice: +30 DB and RR bo-
nuses versus heat and cold attacks.

mest light, they can see 50' perfectly, and fairly well up to 100'.
They can see 10' in total darkness (non- magical). They receive a
special bonus 0f +25 to caving.
COl1OkC
Clot hing & Decoration: Bear ds, sometimes braided. Long hair.
Heavy gar b with colourful hooded cloaks. Cr enulated trimwor k is
popular.
Fears & Inabilities: Open water and the Valar Ulmo (Lord of
Waters). They do not nor mally swim (-50 to Swimming man-
oeuvres).
Lif estyle: Khazd ar e superb miners and craftsmen, and unsur-
passed Stonewor ker s. They live in tightly-knit groups and favour
underground cities which are usually cut into rugged hills or moun-
tains.
Marriage Pat tern: Monogamous. Only a third of the race is fe-
male. The line is tr aced through the male.
Religion: Khazd believe that each lineage has a common spirit
which per meates them all and ties them together. They revere their
ancestors above all other things but Aul their maker, and believe
that in each Dwarven King exists a part of his predecessors. Those
of Dur in` s Folk, the Khazd of Moria and the highlands of
Wilderland, believe their Kings to all be one Dwarf - Durin the
Deathless.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanour: Sober, quiet, possessive, suspicious, pugnacious, in-
trospective, and often very greedy. Tenacious warriors, they fight
without quarter and never retreat. Each Khazad tr eats his kind as
brothers and non-Khazd as lesser beings who, one way or another,
ar e a constant threat. Their blood is thick and their bonds are deep.
They enter into agreements with extreme care but, once made, hon-
our them to the letter. The old adage is true: no friend ever did a
Dwarf a favour, no enemy a wrong, without being repaid in full.
Language: St art ing Languages: Among themselves, Khazd speak
Khuzdul (S8/W6), a guarded tongue known by virtually no one but
themselves. When in public or about in the wild, Khazd speak
Westron (S8/W6), Silvan (S5/W5), Sindarin (S4/W4) . Al lowed

Prejudices: Orcs, Wargs and Dragons are swor n enemies. Above all
other r aces, they despise these the most, although they are ex-
tr emely suspicious of mages and Elves. They have suffered too
much as a result of magic. No dwarf will ever forget the sly words
of Saur on, one whose conjuring enslaved many of their gr eat lords.
Professions: There are no Khazad Barbarian or spell users except
for the Channelling Alchemist. Taught and blessed by the Vala
smith Aul, Khazd practise a plain, pr actical Ear th- magic.
Dwarves know of spell and enchantments, but they generally scoff
at the ways of Elves or other conjur ers, preferring instead to use
such power in the making of permanent physical items. Traditional
mages and bar ds ar e unhear d of; instead they pr oduce alchemists
and engineers.

Wealt h: Gold pieces or a gem (aquamarine, topaz, garnet, per idot,
spinel, emerald, amethyst, ruby, sapphire, diamond) of comparable
value.
Beardless: You were born without that most important of Dwarven
physical traits - facial hair. You must learn to deal with the
pity shown to you by your fellows (the too-loud voices, exag-
gerated enunciation, painstakingly slow speech, and other
well-intentioned efforts to make it easier for you to under-
stand them...) [-7 points].
Trap Sense: You have the ability to sense the presence of mech-
anical traps 50% of the time (GM should roll) [15 points].

ground. You always seem to know the direction of true north
(a special bonus of +50 to the Direction Sense skill) and the
approximate elevation of his location [3 points].
Judge of Angles: You can judge angles and changes in the slant

an incline almost immediately. You receive a special bonus of
+25 when attempting to perceive traps or secret doors that are
set in walls, floors, or ceilings [5 points].
Ossessi ve Greed: Your natural joy in the appreciation of gems,
jewels and other artifice has turned ugly. Your avarice has
become a compulsion that dominates action and thought. You
strive to possess whatever you perceive as beautiful, sparing
nothing and paying no heed to the consequences [-10 points].
Unswerving: Your forthright attack withholds nothing. You do
double normal concussion damage. However, your boldness
may be a drawback, for it does not occur to you to ever fight
defensively. You cannot parry with more than 10% of your
OB. These mighty smitings take a toll on weaponry too. All
weapons have their breakage numbers increased by one and
checks for strength are modified by -10 [20 points].
Gi ft of Mahal: You have been blessed by Mahal with extraordin-
ary healing gifts. +77 to all healing related rolls [50 points].

Bvor, father of the Stiffbeards awoke beneath the Iron
Mountains before leading his folk to the Ered Angurath. Agroup of
dwarves lead by Runin the Headstrong settled in the Uldona Spine
founding Kablik-madur. The Great Cataclysm at the end of the First
Age destroyed kablik-mabur. The Dwarves of the Uldona Spine dug
a new delving Falek-dim (Hh. Home of Moving Waters). In S.A
522 orcs succeeded in caputing Falek-dim and the Dwarves of the
Uldona Spine went southin search of there kin.
In the SecondAge Sauron choose Mordor to be his stronghold.
he made contact with the Dwarves in his guise of Annatar, lord of
Gifts. The Lords of the Stiffbeards were at first taken in, but soon
became troubled by the immigrants brought in to construct Barad-
dr and the nearby town. The delvings of the Ered Angrath were
abandoned and a great migration began to the Ered Harmel. Here
they founded Nmagalz and were content; that is until they heard
reports about mithril in the Ered Laranor (S. YellowMountains).
Here in this great chain of mountains they built Mabld-dm in S.A.
1211. In T.A. 777, Narad-dm is founded in the east of the chain.
Baruzimabl (Kh. Blackflame) is founded in T.A. 1111 in the
west of the chain.
A group settled in the East Ormal bay area, with Azanulbizar
(Vale of Dim Streams), Nlashatr (Path of the Clouds) in
Treddas Mountains, and Khelek-zram in the Pontym Mountains.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck

COl1OkC
Clothing & Decoration: They keep their wiry beards trimmed
short, and weave their hair into very long braids. They prefer
heavy, sturdy, practical clothing when travelling. Cloaks, caps se-
cured with wraps, woollenpantaloons and sturdy boots when travel-
ling. Inside their shielded halls, they prefer to wear brightly col-
oured woven clothes. Robes of purple or turquoise, fancy hats, and
embroidery, clothing of superior craftsmanship adorned with geo-
metrical patterns and wear decoration made of silver and gold and
beset with many kinds of gems.
Fears & Inabilities: Open water and the Valar Ulmo (Lord of
Waters). They do not normally swim (-50 to Swimming man-
oeuvres). They prefer the dry dim environments of their subter-
anean halls to the harsh light of day which is so common in the
Seven lands.
Lifestyle: Khazd are superb miners and craftsmen, and unsur-
passed Stoneworkers. They live in tightly-knit groups and favour
underground cities which are usually cut into rugged hills or moun-
tains.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous. They marry for life and wid-
owers would never remarry. Only a third of the race is female. The
line is traced through the male.
Religion: Khazd believe that each lineage has a common spirit
which permeates them all and ties them together. They revere their
ancestors above all other things but Aul their maker, and believe
that in eachDwarvenKing existsa part of his predecessors.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanour: Sober, quiet, possessive, reclusive, suspicious, pugna-
cious, introspective, and often very greedy. Tenacious warriors, they
fight without quarter and never retreat. Each Khazad treats his kind
as brothers and non-Khazd as lesser beings who, one way or an-
other, are a constant threat. Their blood is thick and their bonds are
deep. They enter into agreements with extreme care but, once made,
honour them to the letter. The old adage is true: no friend ever did
a Dwarf a favour, no enemy a wrong, without being repaid infull.
Language: Start ing Languages: Khuzdul (S8/W6), Apysaic or
Kiranaic (S5/W5). Al lowed Adolescence Development: Khuzdul
(S10/W10), Apysaic (S10/W10), Kiranaic (S10/W10), Tantrakic
(S6/W6), Mmakanin (S6/W6).
Prejudices: Orcs and Trolls are sworn enemies. Above all other
races, they despise these the most, although they are extremely sus-
picious of mages, Elves and anybody they havent had previous
contact with. They have suffered too much as a result of magic. No
dwarf will ever forget the sly words of Sauron, one whose conjuring
enslaved many of their great lords.
Professions: There are no Khazad Barbarian or spell users except
for the Channelling Alchemist. Taught and blessed by the Vala
smith Aul, Khazd practise a plain, practical Earth-magic.
Dwarves know of spell and enchantments, but they generally scoff
at the ways of Elves or other conjurers, preferring instead to use
such power in the making of permanent physical items. Traditional
mages and bards are unheard of; instead they produce alchemists
and engineers.

Wealth: Gold pieces or a gem (aquamarine, topaz, garnet, peridot,
spinel, emerald, amethyst, ruby, sapphire, diamond) of comparable
value.
Beardl ess: You were born without that most important of Dwarven
physical traits - facial hair. You must learn to deal with the pity
shown to you by your fellows (the too-loud voices, exaggerated
enunciation, painstakingly slow speech, and other well-intentioned
efforts to make it easier for you to understand them...) [-7 points].
Trap Sense: You have the ability to sense the presence of mechanical
traps 50%of the time (GMshould roll) [15 points].
Dwarf Sense: You have a superior orienting ability underground. You
always seem to knowthe direction of true north (a special bonus of
+50 to the Direction Sense skill) and the approximate elevation of
hislocation[3points].
Judge of Angl es: You can judge angles and changes in the slant of
relatively uniform, solid surfaces. You can tell the angle of an in-
cline almost immediately. You receive a special bonus of +25 when
attempting to perceive traps or secret doors that are set in walls,
floors, or ceilings [5 points].
Ossessive Greed: Your natural joy in the appreciation of gems, jewels
and other artifice has turned ugly. Your avarice has become a com-
pulsion that dominates action and thought. You strive to possess
whatever you perceive as beautiful, sparing nothing and paying no
heed to the consequences [-10 points].
Unswerving: Your forthright attack withholds nothing. You do double
normal concussion damage. However, your boldness may be a
drawback, for it does not occur to you to ever fight defensively. You
cannot parry with more than 10% of your OB. These mighty smit-
ings take a toll on weaponry too. All weapons have their breakage
numbers increased by one and checks for strength are modified by -
10 [20 points].
Gi ft of Mahal: You have been blessed by Mahal with extraordinary
healing gifts. +77 to all healing related rolls [50 points].
Enchant ed Food: You have a loaf of Cram [3 points].

Thelr, father of the Ironfists awoke beneath the Iron
Mountains. But the menace represented by the dark enemy of the
World with his minions in the Iron Mountains forced them to
migrate first to the Ered Mithrin (S. Grey Mountains). At the
begining of the second age a colony in Mount Gundabad was forced
by treachery and Orcs to abandon there halls and join their brethern
in the Grey Mountains.
Suaron gifted Thelr the dwarven king with a ring of great
magic power. With the aid of this ring he hoped to reclaim the
Uldoa Spine from the Orcs. After seven years of battle and several
great victories, the Dwarves recovered Falek-dim and renamed their
kingdom Nurunkizdin (S.A. 2797 2804). Then the Dwarves
repaired the crumbling works of their Bvor predecessors, and
opened newmines.
Unfortunately in T.A. 58 miners began to be stricken by a lethal
disease. Which followed closely upon the discovery of green stones
(Kh. Bilak-khald) that glowed with there own pale green light. This
disaster was soon followed by fighting against King Thelr XIV
(TA 62), who was secretly assassinated by his brother Thulin.
Thelrs daughter discovered the truth, and driven by her need for
revenge, assassinated the greedy dwarf. Her son, Threlin, fearing a
civil war, left with his sympathetic followers out of Nurunkizdin to
the central Ered Harmal, where they joined Bvors folk in
Nmagalz. Located in the Ered Harmal, the gate to this rich hold
opened eastward, above the waters of HebAaraan and not far from
the Chey lands. It was the greatest Dwarf city in central Endor.

COl1OkC
Clothing &Decoration: Very practical. Most enjoy wearing well-
designed garments of wool and linen which are adorned with intric-
ately embroidered designs near the hems, seams and collars. They
are not very fond of hoods, and only wear them occasionally while
travelling abroad in the Ered Harmal. Instead, they prefer to wear
large and elaborate scarves and simple leather hats. Brims on these
hats vary from 1 3 in width, while the top of these hats are
sometimes very tall. The scarves borne by the folk are commonly
brought to just below the eyes, though occasionally are wrapped
above them as well, leaving a narrowslit. Large and squared, these
scarves are crafted from linen and coloured to denote kinship and
lineage.
Very long beards which are usually worn splayed out, or occasion-
allybraidedin complex patterns like their hair.
Fears & Inabilities: Open water and the Valar Ulmo (Lord of
Waters). They do not normally swim (-50 to Swimming man-
oeuvres).
Lifestyle: They live in subterranean cities in mountains. The King
wields the most power, and with his advisors is ultimately respons-
ible for the welfare of his subjects. Three Herd-Lords under him are
given stewardships for the major population centres within the Ered
Harmal, and for the relationships with human populations. Servants
of the Herd-Lords are called Gate-Lords and are held as experts on
their own special facet of life in the Kingdom. There are military,
religious, social, and economic Gate-Lord's in each centre who
serve as a cabinet to the Herd-Lords. These leaders deal directly
with the artisans, merchants and warriors of the kingdom, represent-
ing their interests to the Herd-Lord, and in turn, the King. Khazd
are superb miners and craftsmen, and unsurpassed Stoneworkers.
They live in tightly-knit groups and favour underground cities
whichare usually cut into rugged hills or mountains.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous. Only a third of the race is fe-
male. The line is traced through the male.
Religion: Thelr's Folk are widely perceived among Dwarves as
being more vocal and active in their religious practice. The people
hold of particular importance their relationship to their creator
Mahal. When in need they frequently call upon him for assistance.
In fact, nearly all of their ceremonies and organized worship re-
volve around their association with himand his creation of them. A
people of perfection and rigid structure, all rites and ordinances are
performed by these Naugrim nearly exactly as they were by their
First Fathers. Very little deviation occurs or is allowed. Despite the
repetition and seeming monotony of their frequent worship, it never
becomes vain or trivial ritual. To them, it is very sincere and very
meaningful. While many of their rites and performances seem su-
perstitious to outsiders, most are in fact deeply symbolic of the cre-
ation of the Seven Fathers and Mahal's protection of them before
and after their birth.
There is also among Thelr's Folk a great deal of ancestor rever-
ence. They, like all Dwarves, believe that each of the Seven Tribes
has an individual spirit which binds all within it together. They too
look forward to the next incarnation of their father, Thelr, and
wonder how his coming will change their society. Many have
prophesised that Thelr will reunite Thralin's folk with their
brethren to the south, leading the folk to a cultural renaissance.
Communication with the folk of Nurunkizdin is erratic, and the
Kings of Nmagalz had been willing to involve themselves in the
politics of the tribes of Man in order to make the lines of commu-
nication in the EredHarmal more secure.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanour: Sober, quiet, possessive, suspicious, pugnacious, in-
trospective, and often very greedy. Tenacious warriors, they fight
without quarter and never retreat. Each Khazad treats his kind as

Dwarf a favour, no enemya wrong, without being repaid in full.
Language: Starti ng Languages: When venturing in the outer world,
they usually speak Chyan (S5/W5) or Lynerian (S4/W4). They keep
their own language Khuzdul (S8/W6) for themselves, and they
never teach it to a non-dwarf. Al lowed Adolescence Development:
Khuzdul (S10/W10), Chyan (Rank S10/W10), Lynerian (S8/W8).

Drin, father of the Stonefoots awoke beneath the Iron

vales of the misty Mountains. Early in the secondage, following the
discovery of red laen; they migrated across the river Anduin and
founded Tumn-gabil (Kh. The Great Hollow) under Amon Lanc
(S. The Naked Hill). In S.A. 97 the bulk of the Khazd travel to
Chey lands and settled in the Ered Harmel, but a small group
remain behind at Amun Lanc.
In S.A 700 this hardy people founded Ruurik in southeastern
Endor. Here they built Tumunamahal on the southwestern side of
the great vale. In the years that followed the dwarves prospered. In
S.A. 1144 the demon king Muar made war upon the dwarves of
Ruuriik. In S.A. 1157 Mar succeeded in seizing the caverns of the
Dwarves. having been driven to near extinction, those who survived
wandered west. In S.A. 2741 the heirs of this great house with the
aid of men journeyed to Khazad-mabur, in an attempt to free the
dwarves of house Barin. The plan back fired but the Khazad turned
events around. a year later the last of the demon kings army was
driven fromthe mountains.

Fears & Inabilities: Open water and the Valar Ulmo (Lord of

underground cities which are usually cut into rugged hills or moun-
tains.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous. Only a third of the race is fe-

Religion: Khazd believe that each lineage has a common spirit
which permeates themall and ties them together. They revere their
ancestors above all other things but Aul their maker, and believe
that in each Dwarven King exists a part of his predecessors. Those
of Durin`s Folk, the Khazd of Moria and the highlands of
Wilderland, believe their Kings to all be one Dwarf - Durin the
Deathless.

Demeanour: Sober, quiet, possessive, suspicious, pugnacious, in-

without quarter and never retreat. Each Khazad treats his kind as
brothers and non-Khazd as lesser beings who, one way or another,
are a constant threat. Their blood is thick and their bonds are deep.
They enter into agreements with extreme care but, once made, hon-

much as a result of magic. No dwarf will ever forget the sly words
of Sauron, one whose conjuring enslaved many of their great lords.
Professions: There are no Khazad Barbarian or spell users except
for the Channelling Alchemist. Taught and blessed by the Vala

Dwarves know of spell and enchantments, but they generally scoff

CULTURE/RACE OF NORTH-
WESTERN ENDOR
iC11Du^kVC:
Petty-dwarves (S. "Noegyth Nibin"; sing. Nogoth Niben; Hi.
Ta-Fa-Nilch) were a dying race before the birth of the Sun and the
Moon. The last of their kin were long assumed to have finished
their lives during the Elder Days, and only one, the treacherous
Mm, is mentioned in the Elvish histories of those times. However,
a fewfled from Beleriand before its fall at the end of the First Age.
They have managed to survive in dark lairs in hidden corners of
Eriador ever since, periodically making appearances that are told in
legends and odd, sad, old tales.
The Petty-dwarves have always had a unique character,
although they were once simply a group of renegades from the
ancient city of Nogrod. The murder for which their leader was
exiled may well have been the first ever to occur among the
Dwarves. It was the nature of the world in the Elder Days that a
single act could shape the destiny of an entire people, and even
change their forms. The exile of the Petty-dwarves gave the culture
of their small tribe a furtive and evil cast, and their secretive and
bitter ways twisted and diminished their bodies and minds. It was
only after their sundering that they began to diminish in stature and
smithcraft.
Eventually they became considerably smaller than their
Dwarven brethren, and in the ThirdAge they rarely stand more than
four feet high. Their tendency to stoop and move about with
peculiar stealth accentuates their smallness. Petty-dwarves are also
remarkably ugly by normal standards: their gnarled limbs ill-fit
their bodies, their heads are far too large and thin, and their beards
are naturally wispy and tangled.
Petty-dwarves have far fewer skills in stone- and metal-working
than do the Dwarves, but they can accomplish much given time.
Instead, they are better at growing and using herbs and more
knowledgeable in the ways of nature. These skills proved necessary
in light of the persecutions weighed upon them; there were never
more than a fewPetty-dwarves in any land, so they were inevitably
preyed upon by stronger races.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Short and stocky, with bowed shoulders.
Coloring: Dark brown togray. Ruddy complexion.
Endurance: Exceptional. They carry medium burdens over long
distanceswith little rest.
Height: 3 to 4 feet tall.
Lifespan: 250-400 years.
Resistance: Resistance against flame and ice (+30 bonus versus
heat and cold attacks).
Special Abilities: Petty-dwarves see well in the dark. In dim light
they can see 50 perfectly, and well to 100'.
COl1OkC
Clothing and Decorations: Beards, hardly ever braided. Unkempt
long hair. Medium garb, usually of gray hue, with hooded cloaks.
Fears and Inabilities: Poor swimmers (-35 to Swimming man-
euvers).
Lifestyle: Petty-dwarves are secretive; even more so than regular
Dwarves. Individual families, and sometimes whole communities,
make homes, which are cut into hills. Since they are food-gatherers,
such homes always near a forest, where they can gather plants,
roots, herbs, etc.
Marriage Patterns: Monogamous and for life. In Dwarvish life
only one third of the race is female, whereas in Petty dwarvish life,
the number of females roughly equals the males. The line is traced
through the male.
Religion: They revere Auld, the maker of all Dwarves and since
nature plays a large role in the lives, they honor the spouse of Aule,
Yavanna.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanor: Quiet, possessive, greedy, suspicious, and often treach-
erous. In some respects they are weaker than Dwarves, but they
make up for this in slyness and cunning. They do not always honor
agreements, which they often try to make when their lives are
threatened.
Language: When in public or about in the wild, Petty-dwarves
speak Westron (S8/W6), or some Sindar (S4/W2). Among them-
selves, they speak Khuzdul (S8/W6), the secret tongue of all
Dwarves. Al lowed Adolescence Development: Westron (S8/W8), Sindar
(S8/W8), Khuzdul (S10/W10).
Prejudices: They hate Orcs and Elves, especially the Noldor, who
stole their old lands.
Professions: No Fighters, Essence Alchemists, Channelling
Alchemists, Drughn, Wegech, spell-users (pure/hybrid/semi) using
the realm of Mentalism. Unlike other Dwarves, the Petty-dwarves
do produce Mages onrare occasions.

They live in the woods and highlands to the east of the
Lossoth, in the bitterly cold regions of north central Middle-
earth. The Umli remain in these wilds year round, residing
in caves and braving the terrible frost of the dark winter.
They are a race of short folk who apparently came from an
ancient union of Men and Dwarves.
Legends call them Half-dwarves, born as a result of a
curse on Sinuphel wife of Cintapher of Hildorien. Her twin
offspring Ucin andUlaphel were belived to be malformed
monstrosities by the men of Hildorien. Ostracized Sinuphel
fled northward with her children and settled in what would
later be known as Urd. There she raised Ucin and Ulaphel
until slain by the cold-drake Lamthanc. Ucin swore

When the Eldar departed from the original Elven homeland
during the Elder Days, a number of their brethren remained behind.
They decided not to seek the light of the Aman and were labeled as
the Avari (Q. Unwilling, Refusers). These kindreds were left to
fend for themselves during the days when Morgoths Shadowswept
over the East. In these dark times they were forced into the secluded
safety of the forests of eastern Middle-earth, where they wandered
and hid fromthe wild Men who dominated most of the lands. They
became known as the Silvan or Wood-elves.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Most are slight of build, and all are thin by mannish stand-
ards. Males average 150 lbs; females, 125 lbs.
Coloring: Ruddy of complexion, with sandy hair and blue or green
eyes. Generalizations are difficult, however, since they are many
kindreds and there is wide variationamong them.
Endurance: They do not carry great burdens, but they are capable
of travelling 16-20 hours a day. Elves do not need sleep. Instead,
they receive rest through meditation involving memories, past
events they recall with remarkable vividness. Normally they go into
this trance-like state for approximately two hours each day (this
restores Power Points as a normal nights sleep). However, when
pressed, they can function for many days with little or no relief (the
restoration of Power Points still requires 2 hours of meditation).
While in their meditative state, Elves are extremely difficult to
awaken; they rise at a point previously decided. This manner of rest
is in keeping with the Elven fondness for the night. Men often re-
ferred to them as people of the stars with good reason.
Height: Males average 60"; females, 59".
Lifespan: Elves age in a graceful; nearly imperceptible manner.
Elves commonly die from only two causes: through violence, or as
a result of a weariness of the world. In the latter case an Elf is
simply overcome with grief over the course of time, thereby losing
the will to live. All Elves who pass away are gathered in the halls of
Mandos, the place of Awaiting, in the far west of Aman (valinor).
There they await the End of the World, or are released back into the
world to replace another of their line who has perished. In a sense,
Elves are often reborn as descendants of themselves.
Race Abilities: Avar.
Resistance: They cannot become sick or scarred and are virtually
immune to all bacterial and viral infections. Their gentile physical
appearance belies great strengths, however, for they are highly res-
istant to extremes of natural cold, their clothing is usually for decor-
ation, camouflage, or, perhaps, modesty +10 DB and RR bonuses
versus cold attacks.
Special Abilities: Elves are able to see on a star-lit or moonlit
night, as if full it were daylight. Their vision is restricted with less
light-with any light source, they can see 50' perfectly and100' fairly
well. However, in absolute darkness they are no better than Men.
Their sense of hearing is also superb (+10 toAwareness manoeuvres
involving only hearing), and no doubt accounts for the Elven skills
with music. Their reverence for song is unparalleled and has af-
fected their language and way of keeping precious records. The
Elves were first to use spoken words and have taught the other races
of the gift of speech; thus their own name for their kind: Quendi -
the Speakers. All of their speech has a musical quality when
spoken properly, lending itself well to verse. Elven Bards, then,
have had little trouble in maintaining the histories and epics of their
race as a collection of wondrous songs and spoken poetry.
The Silvan folk are superb musicians and have tremendous hearing,
even for Elves (they get a special +10 bonus to Base Spell attacks
from Bard spell lists).
They are also elusive and get a special +10 bonus to their Trickery
skill and their Stalking, and Hiding skill.
COl1OkC
Clothing & Decoration: Their preferred clothes are usually forest
green, grey, or brown, and range fromfunctional designs to fanciful
expressions of individual creativity. Their garments lack the formal-
ity and pomp typical of Noldo garb.
Fears &Inabilities: Nothing special.
Lifestyle: The culture of the Silvan Elves is best characterized as
unstructured and rustic by Elven standards, but rich and relatively
advanced when compared to the ways of Men. They have always
been independent, but as of late many have settled in kingdoms
ruled bythe Noldors or Sindar. Still, all the Silvan folkenjoy a good
journey or adventure and most look at life much as a game to be
played. Music and trickery are their favorite pastimes. The Silvan
Elves are also masters of the wood and know much of wood-craft
and wood-lore.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous and for life. They sometimes
matty Men. Such unions produce Half-elves.
Religion: Informal and centered around communal celebration and
personal meditation. Like all Elves, they worship Varda as giver of
light and maker of the stars. The principal difference is their strong
attachment to the Vala Orom, the HUntsman and Tamer of
Beasts
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanor: They are a fun-loving but guarded folk. Outward mirth
often hides their grim intentions.
Language: St art ing Languages: Silvan tongues, which are often
called Silvan (S10/W10), are their favoured lnaguages. The Silvan
Elves of Mirkwood and places further west, however, generally use
Sindarin (S8/W6) as their native tongue. Because all Elvish has a
song-like quality, however, the slightly unique Silvan vocal pattern
betrays their racial origin, even when they employ the tongues of
the Eldar. Most know westron (S8/W6), and a little Quenya
(S4/W4). Al lowed Adolescence Development: Sindarin (S10/W10),
Westron (S10/W10), Quenya (S10/W10), Adnaic (S4/W4), Atliduk
(S8/W8), Logathig(S8/W8), Nahaiduk (S8/W8).
Prejudices: The Silvan Elves readily seclude themselves more
readily than the Eldar, for they have a less friendly history of rela-
tions with Men. They despise Orcs, dislike Dwarves, and are suspi-
ciousof Men.
Professions: Of all the Elven groups, they are the quickest to em-
ploy spells, and often use magic for simple uses or mere tricks, Still,
they are not normally prone to use magic of great power. Silvan
Elves produce no Barbarian, Drughn, Kekhavra or Vracara,
Wegech.
Training Packages: All available except Apothecary, Beastmaster,
midwife, Shaman Priest, Surgeon, Zealot and the training packages
specific to other race/cultures.

The Snow-elves are of Nandorin origin. They began wandering the
Talath Uichel on a permanent basis from about S.A. 1700 onward,
and joined the Ystavat Talven in their westward withdrawal from
the Sled-horde, which brought themto the Cape of Forochel. After
the globing of Arda, many of the Snow-elves journeyed north onto
the Landless Land and founded Helloth, though some continue to
wander the lands of Forodwaith.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ckl:1lC:
Build: While more muscular than their kinsfolk in the South, the
Snow-elves do not quite equal the stature of the Sindar. Males aver-
age about 175 lbs, with females, only slightly less well-built, aver-
aging 165 lbs.
Coloring: Uniformly very pale of complexion, the skin of the
Lossidil often resembles the whitest ivory. Eyes are usually blue
(ranging in shade from pale to dark), though grey and light green
hues are not uncommon. Hair often resembles silver or pale gold,
though reddish-brown tones are not unknown.
Height: Snow-elven males average 6'4" and females 6'2", though
individuals may depart considerablyfrom the norm.
Lifespan: Elves age in a graceful; nearly imperceptible manner.
Elves commonly die from only two causes: through violence, or as
a result of a weariness of the world. In the latter case an Elf is
simply overcome with grief over the course of time, thereby losing
the will to live. All Elves who pass away are gathered in the halls of
Mandos, the place of Awaiting, in the far west of Aman (valinor).
There they await the End of the World, or are released back into the
world to replace another of their line who has perished. In a sense,
Elves are often reborn as descendants of themselves. Alone of the
Eldarin kindreds they feel little or no longing to depart from
Middle-earth.
Race Abilities: Nando.
Resistance: Snow-elves cannot become ill, diseased or scarred, and
are rarely affected by adverse temperatures. However, their long
habitation of the frozen North has left themmore susceptible to heat
than other Elves (+30 against cold, -5 against heat).
Special Abilities: Lossidil share the Elvish trait of lightness, being
able to walk on newly fallen snowas if it were soft earth. This, and
their affinity for the frozen North, enable them to maneuver without
penalties in the worst of snowy conditions. This same affinity gives
the Snow-elves a +10 to +30 to other maneuvers that could be af-
fected by snowand cold (e.g.: Stalking, Hiding, Combat, etc.).
Lossidil share the superb vision of all Elves, which enables themto
see on a star-lit or moonlit night, as if full it were daylight. Their
vision is restricted with less light-with anylight source, they can see
50' perfectly and 100' fairly well. However, in absolute darkness
they are no better than Men.
Their sense of hearing is also superb (+10 toAwareness manoeuvres
involving only hearing), and no doubt accounts for the Elven skills
with music. Their reverence for song is unparalleled and has af-
fected their language and way of keeping precious records. The
Elves were first to use spoken words and have taught the other races
of the gift of speech; thus their own name for their kind: Quendi -
the Speakers. All of their speech has a musical quality when
spoken properly, lending itself well to verse. Elven Bards, then,
have had little trouble in maintaining the histories and epics of their
race as a collection of wondrous songs and spoken poetry.
COl1OkC
Clothing and Decorations: Males and females prefer closefitting
garments of reindeer-skin. In contrast with their pale surroundings
and coloring, the Lossidil use a variety of dyes to array themselves
in a wide range of vibrant hues. Individuals can also add ornaments
such as brooches, rings, bracelets and other jewelry as the mood
takes them.
Fears andInabilities: None.
Lifestyle: The harsh environment of the North demands a greater
degree of cooperation than is the norm for Silvan Elves. All Lossidil
acknowledge Losp'indel as the foremost of their people, and follow
her guidance willingly. Nearly all Snow-elves spend some of their
lives wandering the Northern Waste in small companies, though
only a fewchose this way of life for long periods of time.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous and for life.
Religion: Rather more like the Falathrim, the Snow-elves pay
greater reverence to Ulmo than to Varda, because of the Sea-lord's
visitation to them after the Second Cataclysm.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanor: True to their Nandorin roots, the Snow-elves are great
lovers of freedom, an attitude strengthened by their historical re-
sentment towards the intrusion of the Grey-elf Oropher into their
ancestral homeland of Rhovanion. Among those not of their race,
the Snow-elves are calm and quiet. When with their own they are
apt to showstronger emotions. While generally peaceful, generous
and loving, anger and jealousy are not unknown among them.
Language: Starti ng Languages: The Snow-elves speak their own
tongue Lossidilrin (S10/W10). Most also know Labba (S7/W7).
Adolescent Skil l Devel opment : Labba (S9/W9), Umitic (S5/W5), Urdic
(S5/W5).
Prejudices: The Snow-elves hate all creatures of Morgoth and min-
ions of Sauron. While friendly with the Noldor of Evermist, they
have a strong dislike for any Sindarin Elves (though this would
never drive a Lossedel to physically assault a Grey-elf).
Professions: No barbarians, Drughn, Kekhavra, Vracara, Wegech.

CULTURE/RACE OF NORTH-
WESTERN ENDOR
N^NDCk
,s|. N+.:el
Although initially willing to seek the West, some of the Teleri
stopped short of their goal and never came to the Undying Lands. In
the Vale of Anduin they halted thier journey and dwelt in they
forrestedlands they found there.
The Nandor, although technically among the Eldar because of
their Teler heritage, never came to the Undying Lands, nor wit-
nessed the light of the Two Trees. Thus they are considered to be
Moriquendi (S. dark elves).
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Most are slight of build, and all are thin by mannish stand-
ards. Males average 190 lbs; females, 155 lbs.
Coloring: Most have fair hair and pale blue or grey eyes. They
have light skin.
Endurance: They do not carry great burdens, but they are capable
of travelling 16-20 hours a day. Elves do not need sleep. Instead,
they receive rest through meditation involving memories, past
events they recall with remarkable vividness. Normally they go into
this trance-like state for approximately two hours each day (this
restores Power Points as a normal nights sleep). However, when
pressed, they can function for many days with little or no relief (the
restoration of Power Points still requires 2 hours of meditation).
While in their meditative state, Elves are extremely difficult to
awaken; they rise at a point previously decided. This manner of rest
is in keeping with the Elven fondness for the night. Men often re-
ferred to them as people of the stars with good reason.
Height: Males average 65"; females, 61".
Lifespan: Elves age in a graceful; nearly imperceptible manner.
Elves commonly die from only two causes: through violence, or as
a result of a weariness of the world. In the latter case an Elf is
simply overcome with grief over the course of time, thereby losing
the will to live. All Elves who pass away are gathered in the halls of
Mandos, the place of Awaiting, in the far west of Aman (valinor).
There they await the End of the World, or are released back into the
world to replace another of their line who has perished. In a sense,
Elves are often reborn as descendants of themselves.
Race Abilities: Nando.
Resistance: They cannot become sick or scarred and are virtually
immune to all bacterial and viral infections. Their gentile physical
appearance belies great strengths, however, for they are highly res-
istant to extremes of natural cold, their clothing is usually for decor-
ation, camouflage, or, perhaps, modesty +10 DB and RR bonuses
versus cold attacks.
Special Abilities: Elves are able to see on a star-lit or moonlit
night, as if full it were daylight. Their vision is restricted with less
light-with any light source, they can see 50' perfectly and100' fairly
well. However, in absolute darkness they are no better than Men.
Their sense of hearing is also superb (+10 toAwareness manoeuvres
involving only hearing), and no doubt accounts for the Elven skills
with music. Their reverence for song is unparalleled and has af-
fected their language and way of keeping precious records. The
Elves were first to use spoken words and have taught the other races
of the gift of speech; thus their own name for their kind: Quendi -
the Speakers. All of their speech has a musical quality when
spoken properly, lending itself well to verse. Elven Bards, then,
have had little trouble in maintaining the histories and epics of their
race as a collection of wondrous songs and spoken poetry.
The Silvan folk are superb musicians and have tremendous hearing,
even for Elves (they get a special +10 bonus to Base Spell attacks
from Bard spell lists).
They are also elusive and get a special +10 bonus to their Trickery
skill and their Stalking, and Hiding skill.
COl1OkC
Clothing & Decoration: Their preferred clothes are usually forest
green, grey, or brown, and range fromfunctional designs to fanciful
expressions of individual creativity. Their garments lack the formal-
ity and pomp typical of Noldo garb.
Fears &Inabilities: Nothing special.
Lifestyle: The culture of the Silvan Elves is best characterized as
unstructured and rustic by Elven standards, but rich and relatively
advanced when compared to the ways of Men. They have always
been independent, but as of late many have settled in kingdoms
ruled bythe Noldors or Sindar. Still, all the Silvan folkenjoy a good
journey or adventure and most look at life much as a game to be
played. Music and trickery are their favorite pastimes. The Silvan
Elves are also masters of the wood and know much of wood-craft
and wood-lore.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous and for life. They sometimes
matty Men. Such unions produce Half-elves.
Religion: Informal and centered around communal celebration and
personal meditation. Like all Elves, they worship Varda as giver of
light and maker of the stars. The principal difference is their strong
attachment to the Vala Orom, the Huntsman and Tamer of Beasts
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanor: They are a fun-loving but guarded folk. Outward mirth
often hides their grim intentions.
Language: Starti ng Languages: Bethteur (S10/W10), is their fa-
voured language. The Silvan Elves of Mirkwood and Lothlrien,
however, generally use Sindarin (S8/W6) as their native tongue.
Because all Elvish has a song-like quality, however, the slightly
unique Silvan vocal pattern betrays their racial origin, even when
they employ the tongues of the Eldar. Most knowwestron (S8/W6),
and a little Quenya (S4/W4). All owed Adolescence Devel opment:
Sindarin (S10/W10), Westron (S10/W10), Quenya (S10/W10),
Adnaic (S4/W4), Atliduk (S8/W8), Logathig (S8/W8), Nahaiduk
(S8/W8).
Prejudices: The Nandor readily seclude themselves more readily
than the Eldar, for they have a less friendly history of relations with
Men. They despise Orcs, dislike Dwarves, and are suspicious of
Men.
Professions: Of all the Elven groups, they are the quickest to em-
ploy spells, and often use magic for simple uses or mere tricks, Still,
they are not normally prone to use magic of great power. Nandor
produce no Barbarian, Drughn, Kekhavra or Vracara, Wegech.

midwife, Shaman Priest, Surgeon, Zealot and the training packages
specific to other race/cultures.

CULTURE/RACE OF NORTH-
WESTERN ENDOR
NClDCk
,s|. Ne|:el
The Noldor are often called High
Elves ostensibly because they are
considered to be the most noble of the
Quendi in Middle-earth. In reality, they
are so named because they are the only
Elves living in Endor who have ever
resided in the Blessed Realm of Aman
across the sea. This exalted status is
accentuated by their close ties with the
Valar, a relationship which accounts for
their unique cultural and linguistic
roots. Other names for the Noldor include Deep-elves, Golodhrim
or Gelydh (Sindarin labels), and Nmin (Adan label).
Finw was the first King of the Noldor, which is counted among
the Eldar as the Second Kindred. Finws sons - Fanor, Fingolfin
and Finarfin - produced the three traditional lines which compose
the whole of the Noldor.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Of all the Elves, the Noldor are the strongest and sturdiest of
build, although they are still slimmer than Men. Males average 215
pounds; females, 175 pounds.
Colouring: Most are dark haired and have greyish eyes which be-
tray a proud demeanour. Decendants of the Fingolfin and Finarfin
are often fair haired and blue eyed, for their blood contains Vanyar
influences.
Endurance: They do not carry great burdens, but they are capable
of travelling 16-20 hours a day. Elves do not need sleep. Instead,
they receive rest through meditation involving memories, past
events they recall with remarkable vividness. Normally they go into
this trance-like state for approximately two hours each day (this
restores Power Points as a normal nights sleep). However, when
pressed, they can function for many days with little or no relief (the
restoration of Power Points still requires 2 hours of meditation).
While in their meditative state, Elves are extremely difficult to
awaken; they rise at a point previously decided. This manner of rest
is in keeping with the Elven fondness for the night. Men often re-
ferred to them as people of the stars with good reason.
Height: Males average 67"; females, 63".
Lifespan: Elves age in a graceful; nearly imperceptible manner.
Elves commonly die from only two causes: through violence, or as
a result of a weariness of the world. In the latter case an Elf is
simply overcome with grief over the course of time, thereby losing
the will to live. All Elves who pass away are gathered in the halls of

There they await the End of the World, or are released back into the
world to replace another of their line who has perished. In a sense,
Elves are often reborn as descendants of themselves.
Race Abilities: Noldo.
Resistance: They cannot become sick or scarred and are virtually
immune to all bacterial and viral infections. Their gentile physical
appearance belies great strengths, however, for they are highly res-
istant to extremes of natural cold, their clothing is usually for decor-
ation, camouflage, or, perhaps, modesty +20 DB and RR bonuses
versus cold attacks.
Special Abilities: Elves are able to see on a star-lit or moonlit
night, as if full it were daylight. Their vision is restricted with less
light-with any light source, they can see 50' perfectly and100' fairly

ity when spoken properly, lending itself well to verse. Elven
Bards, then, have had little trouble in maintaining the histories and
epics of their race as a collection of wondrous songs and spoken
poetry.
Noldor are unparalleled at understanding and working with crafts.
They get a special +20 bonus to their Attunement skill.
They get a special bonus of +15 to Healing Meditation and
HealingSongs skills.
COl1OkC
Clothing &Decoration: They favour rich clothing and fine craft-
manship, and often have the appearance of great wealth.
Fears &Inabilities: Nothing special.
Lifestyle: Of all the Elves of Middle-earth, the Noldor are the most
ordered. While their brethren are content to wander or mark time in
quiet diffusion, the High Elves seek to build communities and states
in beautiful, guarded places.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous and for life.
Religion: Informal and centered around communal celebration and
personal meditation. Like the Dwarves, the Noldor are fiery crafts-
men who are fast friends of Aul. The smith imbued them with a
heightened respect for physical objects. It is not surprising, then, to
find that the Noldor revere Aul more than any other Vala, save
Varda herself. Like all Elves they worship Varda as giver of light
and maker of the stars.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanour: Regardless of the line, all Noldor are noble of bearing
and carry themselves with assurance. They are haughty and often
appear to be arrogant. Of all the Elves, they are the most inquisitive
and passionate, being full of a desire for experience and expertise in
the arts and the ways of the world. Because of this thirst for know-
ledge, the Noldor have often fallen prey to lust, corruption and
strife.
Language: Start ing Languages: Quenya (S10/W10) (Q. The
Speech pronounced Kwen-ya), is mainly used in their own en-
virons. For speech outside of their own quiet territory, the Noldor
employ Sindarin (S8/W6). When dealing with Men or races unac-
quainted with Sindarin, they rely on the common tongue of Westron
(S8/W6) or more rarely, the Adnaic (S6/W4) of the Dnedain.
All owed Adol escence Development : Sindarin (S10/W10), Westron
(S10/W10), Adnaic (S8/W8), Labba (S6/W6), Bethteur (Silvan)
(S8/W8).
Prejudices: The High Elves hate Orcs, Trolls, and Dragons above
all creatures. Due to their pride they tend to look down upon non-
Dnedan Men.
Professions: The term Noldor means wise or knowing and
serves as a fine label for the Second Kindred. For this reason, they
produce the greatest number of Elven Bards and loremasters. There
are no Noldo Barbarian, Drughn, Kekhavra, or Vracara, Wegech.
Training Packages: All available except Apothecary, Beastmaster,
Midwife, Shaman Priest, Surgeon, Zealot and the training packages
specific to other race/cultures
Special Skills: Everyman: all skills within the Crafts category;
Restricted: Apothecry, Physics.
Standard Hobby Skills: Acting, any Armour skills, Attunement,

CULTURE/RACE OF NORTH-
WESTERN ENDOR
:lND^k
,s|. :|.:+l
The Sindar or Grey-elves
are Eldar and were originally part
of the great kindred called the
Teleri, the Sindar chose not to
cross over the sea to Aman;
instead they stayed in Middle-
earth. They, like the Nando and
Avari, are part of the Moriquendi,
the Dark Elves who never saw
the Light of Valinor.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Thin when compared to Men, the Sindar are nearly as tall as
the Noldor but are generally slighter of build. They are more mus-
cular than the Silvan folk. Males average 190 pounds; females, 155
pounds.
Colouring: Most have fair hair and pale blue or grey eyes. Like the
Noldor, they have light skin.
Endurance: They do not carry great burdens, but they are capable
of travelling 16-20 hours a day. Elves do not need sleep. Instead,
they receive rest through meditation involving memories, past
events they recall with remarkable vividness. Normally they go into
this trance-like state for approximately two hours each day (this
restores Power Points as a normal nights sleep). However, when
pressed, they can function for many days with little or no relief (the
restoration of Power Points still requires 2 hours of meditation).
While in their meditative state, Elves are extremely difficult to
awaken; they rise at a point previously decided. This manner of rest
is in keeping with the Elven fondness for the night. Men often re-
ferred to them as people of the stars with good reason.
Height: Males average 65"; females, 61.
Lifespan: Elves age in a graceful; nearly imperceptible manner.
Elves commonly die from only two causes: through violence, or as
a result of a weariness of the world. In the latter case an Elf is
simply overcome with grief over the course of time, thereby losing
the will to live. All Elves who pass away are gathered in the halls of
Mandos, the place of Awaiting, in the far west of Aman (valinor).
There they await the End of the World, or are released back into the
world to replace another of their line who has perished. In a sense,
Elves are often reborn as descendants of themselves.
Race Abilities: Sinda.
Resistance: They cannot become sick or scarred and are virtually
immune to all bacterial and viral infections. Their gentile physical
appearance belies great strengths, however, for they are highly res-
istant to extremes of natural cold, their clothing is usually for decor-
ation, camouflage, or, perhaps, modesty +15 DB and RR bonuses
versus cold attacks.
Special Abilities: Elves are able to see on a star-lit or moonlit
night, as if full it were daylight. Their vision is restricted with less
light-with any light source, they can see 50' perfectly and100' fairly
well. However, in absolute darkness they are no better than Men.
Their sense of hearing is also superb (+10 toAwareness manoeuvres
involving only hearing), and no doubt accounts for the Elven skills
with music. Their reverence for song is unparalleled and has af-
fected their language and way of keeping precious records. The
Elves were first to use spoken words and have taught the other races
of the gift of speech; thus their own name for their kind: Quendi -
the Speakers. All of their speech has a musical quality when
spoken properly, lending itself well to verse. Elven Bards, then,
have had little trouble in maintaining the histories and epics of their
race as a collection of wondrous songs and spoken poetry.
The Sindar are less musical thanthe Vanyar or Silvan Elves, and are
less skilled in forging or crafts than the Noldor. Nonetheless, they
are adept at all the arts and excel in their special provinces. No race
builds better boats or ships.
COl1OkC
Clothing &Decoration: Sinda clothing is exceedingly well made,
yet subtle and utilitarian. They do not favour the rich garb of their
Noldor cousins. Greys and silvers are their chosen colours. Greys
and silvers are their chosen colours.
Fears &Inabilities: Nothing special.
Lifestyle: The Sinda are the most open and cooperative of Middles-
earths Elves. They are great teachers and borrowers and have an
interest in the works of all races. This is in contrast to the more in-
quisitive Noldor, who are quick to scoff at things which are subtle
or modest in appearance or utility. Grey-elves are a settled people
and enjoy the company of others. Unlike the Silvan Elves, they
build towns and havens and gather in close-knit communities. Many
of the Sinda feel a kinship to the sea. They build superb ships and
are renowned sailors.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous and for life. They sometimes
marry mortal Men. Suchunions produce Half-elves.
Religion: Informal and centred around communal celebration and
personal meditation, just as those of other Elves. Like the Noldor,
they revere Eru and see Varda as their patron Vala. Given their love
for sailing and the sea, they also have a special respect fo Ulmo, the
Lord of Waters.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanour: Of the three Elven races of Middle-earth, the Sindar
are the quietest and calmest, and appear to be the most content.
They are less frivolous and playful than the Silvan Elves, and are
less fiery and passionate than the Noldor. Sindar feelings are deep
and not easily aroused, but when they are they cannot be stayed.
This is the root of their Sea-longing.

Half-elves are a rare breed, the offspring
of Men and Elves. While the Dnedain,
Corsairs, and Black Numenoreans have Elvish
(and even Maia) blood, their connection to
Elves lies in the remote past and they are not
called Half-elves. True Half-elves have one
Human and one Elven parent.
Upon reaching adulthood, a Half-elf must
decide whether to live as a mortal Man or an
immortal Elf. Elrond of Rivendale chose the
later course, while his brother Elros - first king
of Nmenor - opted for mortality. Those who
become men receive the Gift of Death and are
not bound to Fate like their Elven kin.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Strong and slender, thinner than Men but stouter than Elves.
They have thin, angular features. Males average 190 pounds, fe-
males 135 pounds.
Colouring: Fair, generally with brown or black hair and grey eyes.
Endurance: Considerable. Half-elves need but 4 hours rest a day:
sleep for mortals or meditation for the immortals.
Height: Males average 63", females 511"
Lifespan: Mortal Half-elves live 250-500 years.
Race Abilities: half-elf.
Resistance: Half-elves are highly resistant to disease and natural

Special Abilities: Half-elves can see extremely well in the dark.
Under moon light or star light they can see perfectly for 500'. In
other darkness situations they see as Elves do (50' to 100' if a light
source isavailable).

Hobbits have an unclear origin, although they arose about the
east in the First Age, at about the same time as Men. Indeed, they
are said to be related to Men. Their habits, however, are unique:
they burrowand dig and reside In holes, thus their name Kuduk,
which means
h o l e -
d we l l e r
(from their
a n c i e n t
R o va n i on
Hob bi t i sh
Kd-dkan).
The tradi-
t i o n a l
W e s t r o n
na me for
Hobbit s is
Banakil (W. Halfling). Also known as Periannath (sing. Perian),
Holbytla (Ro. hole-builder)
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: smallest of the speaking people, Hobbits average between 2
and 4 feet in height, and tend to be fat or podgy. They have large
and hairy feet - to the point of being furry. There are three principal
varieties, or tribes, of hobbits: the harfoots, Stoors, andFallohides.
The Fallohides are the tallest (average: males, 39, 65 pounds; fe-
males 37, 62 pounds). They have fair skin and, of all the groups,
resemble Men the most. Their numbers are small, however, and
some observers have confused them with nearby mannish groups.
The most common Hobbits are Harfoots. They are the smallest in
size (average: males, 35, 54 pounds; females 33, 51 pounds) and
the darkest in colour, having brown skin and hair. Neat and uni-
formly beardless, they are in many ways the picture of the average
Hobbit.
The Stoors are the stockiest Hobbit folk and often appear shorter
than some of the Harfoots because of their wife profile. Generally,
however, they are taller than Harfoots and shorter than Fallohides
(average: males, 37 66 pounds; females 35 62 pounds). Their
colouration is also somewhat of a compromise, although they have
curly brown hair which resembles that of their shorter cousins.
Nonetheless, the most distinguishing features of Stoors are their
huge hands and feet (large even by Hobbit standards) and frequent
beard growth..
Colouring: Brown skin and hair. Neat and uniformly beardless.
Endurance: Hobbits have a subtle ruggedness which is akin to that
of Dwarves and Orcs. When pushed, they can travel long distances
over tough terrain, despite the fact that their normal routine requires
frequent meals and relaxation.
Height: Males average 35", females average 33".
Lifespan: 90-110 years. They become adults at 30.
Race Abilities: Hobbit.
Resistance: Their feet and hands are almost immune to heat and
cold. Accordingly, they are almost always barefoot. +30 DB and RR
bonuses versus heat and cold attacks. Their innate simplicity and
innocence gives them heightened resistance to magical attacks (this
is reflected in their high racial RRmodification).
Special Abilities: Dexterous, they move nimbly and quietly. Their
long, strangely slender fingers allow them to craft fine handiwork
and help explain their fine reputation as thieves (this is reflected in
their high racial Agility stat bonus).
COl1OkC
Clothing & Decoration: They wear linen or wool garb - shirts,
pants which fall to the upper ankle, and brightly coloured vests.
They occasionally don hats, but rarely wear shoes or gloves.
Fears &Inabilities: Hobbits shy away from the bizarre or unusual,
but otherwise have normal dispositions.
Lifestyle: Generally, Hobbits burrowand dig and reside in holes.
They are capable craftsmen, but are not friends of complex ma-
chines or magic. Their vices are few: six hefty meals a day, pipe
weed smoking, and bright apparel. Still regardless of this dull and
insular lifestyle, the Hobbits steady approach to life has proved suc-
cessful; in the face of wars, plagues, and famines they have sur-
vivedrelatively undisturbed.
Some Hobbits are curious enough to travel or adventure a bit and
the Fallohides have produced a considerable number of rather bold
individuals. Each Hobbit tribe has its own favourite locale:
Fallohides enjoy woodlands found in cool northern climes; Harfoots
favour hillsides and highlands; and Stoors prefer riversides and flat-
land's. Accordingly, their preferences have had an effect on their
living patterns. The conservative Harfoots, for instance, have al-
ways had sites for their traditional smials or Hobbit-hole houses,
while the Stoors and Fallohides have begun relying on surface
dwellings of wood, brick, or stone.
All the Hobbits enjoy the simple life of farmers, millers, and crafts-
men. Workshops and sheds dot their territories, uniformly lowstruc-
tures, for the hobbits hate towers and rarely build above the first
story.
In the Shire (K. Sza) the traditional office of the ruling Thain is
hereditary.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous. Harfoots and Fallohides trace
their lines through either the male or female. Stoors trace theirs
through the female.
Religion: Hobbit religion is without exception low-key and in-
formal. It is actually a series of joyful celebrations centring on the
gifts of Nature. Mid-years (midsummers) is the time for the sum-
mer festival, while the two Yule days at the beginning and end of
the mark the beginning of the return of the sun and the march to-
ward spring. Harvest times, of course, are always of special note.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanour: Hobbits are basically cheery, conservative, unassum-
ing, and peaceful folk. Ambition is not part of their makeup. Most

CULTURE/RACE OF NORTH-
WESTERN ENDOR
hCk^CN
The Beffraen were most likely the original inhabitants of
Cardolan. They are descended from the ancient Woses, being gifted
with night-vision and a somewhat enchanted quality, but possess
blood from other peoples (typically by kidnapping), making them
somewhat larger then a true Dradan. The Beffraen nowlive only in
the area around Eryn Vorn and the woods south of the mouth of the
Gwathl, though they once inhabited all the coasts of Cardolan.
PHYSICAL CHARACTER
Build: Beffraen generally have a broad, stumpy profile marked by
wide, flat features, and deep-set eyes. Short, thick legs. heavy lower
bodies, and pronounced brows help give them an eerie charracter -
unlike any other men. They have little body hair. Men avarage
185pounds; women, 154 pounds.
Colouring: Ruddy skin, black hair and black eyes.
Endurance: Average.
Height: Men average 50; women, 47.
Lifespan: 40-60 years.
Race Abilities: Drg.
Resistance: Average.
Special Abilities: They have excellent night vision and can see at
nnight as well as they can during the day. The wide noses of the
Beffraen give them an excellent sense of smell. Range 100upwind,
2000 downwind, and 500 in still air. +10 Awareness categories
when dealing with smells and a +25 bonus when tracking
something based on it`s smell.
COl1OkC
Clothing & Decoration: Clothing is simple, leather or fur loin-
cloths and robes. Most Beffraen decorate their bodies with large
tattoos that make religious statements or relate personal and family
history. males typically shave all their heads save for a top-knot.
Fears &Inabilities: The Beffraen have been tainted by their asso-
ciation with Morgoth during the second aget. Because of this there
ability to use magic has been affected and they suffer -10 to all spell
casting static manuevers, BARS, EARS, to the Power Manipulation
skill Category and to the Power Awareness skill category.
Lifestyle: The Beffraen are a hunter-gatherer culture, people with
little better than stone technology, although they have many cap-
tured weapons. Their tribal groups are led by a chief known as a
klag, who may be either a warrior or a shaman. They have a very
simple tribal organization and a language few understand. The
Beffraen are quite adept are handling their small hide skiffs along
the rocky coasts of Eriador where they fish; and they must excel in
the ways of the forest in order to survive the terrors of the Eryn
Vorn.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamus, producing fewyoung. The line is
traced through the female.
Religion: The Beffraen cult is based on worship ofChefuidocsuma
Tunkadur (Bef. "Mightiest Doom"). Although the Saralainn rumor
that claims their shamans are on a first name basis with demons is
nonsense, the Beffraen religion is a bitter and grim one, having
much to do with the fear of nature and the outside world.

CULTURE/RACE OF NORTH-
WESTERN ENDOR
hCkNlN^
,s|. h.a.|.l
The Beijabar, also called Beornings, Beijabar or Bajaegahar, are
descendants of the Eriedain (Second Age Eriadorians), who became
increasingly isolated from the other Northmen of Eriador as the
Second Age passed. By T.A. 1 they had retreated into the high
foothills and passes of the Northern Misty Mountains and the Nan
Anduin (S. Anduin Valley).
The Berninga observe a covenant with the bears of the Misty
Mountains which forbids them to hunt other mammals for food or
fur. In return, the bears taught these Men the art of skinchanging,
enabling themto take on the formof a bear at will. Not all Berninga
master this latent gift, but those that do are greatly revered by their
kinsfolk andfeared by their enemies.
They are a Northman branch related to the
Woodmen, Lake-men, and Dale-men of Rhovanion.
Their numbers are few, and some have distin-
guished them as a clan rather than a seperate
people. Culturally, and to some degree physically,
however, theyare unique.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Physically, they are the largest of the
Northmen, and all are strong of build and bone
structure. Men are exceedingly hairy; they average
215pounds. Women average 145 pounds.
Colouring: Their complextions are fair, but unlike most Northmen
(who are usually blond), the majority have reddish hair.
Endurance: Berninga need six hours sleep only twice every three
days.
Height: Men avergae 64; women, 57.
Lifespan: 80-100 years.
Race Abilities: Northman.
Resistance: Average.
Special Abilities: Wild animals will not attack a Beijabar unless
actively provoked.
COl1OkC
Clothing &Decoration: They are extremely hairy, and their tend-
ency to wear furs gives them an animal-like appearance.
Favouring rugged tunics, capes, and woolen pants with leggings,
they rarely wear any traditional armour.
Fears &Inabilities: They shy away fromcivilised areas.
Lifestyle: Berninga have traditionally lived in small groups or
single families on well-tended manors. Some, like Beorns line,
have favoured realative lowlands, while the majority reside in the
passes and foothils of the Misty Mountains or Grey Mountains. In
eachcase, their presence is extremely subtle. Beorning families tend
both themselves and their surrounding manors with the aid of a
wide variety of freindly animals (At. Galaistadiuza, sing.
Galaistadius), members of the household which appear tame to the
outsider. They do not eat their anmal feinds, but rely on fish, rep-
tiles, and fowl for food. Males leave their manors for extended peri-
odsin order to conduct military, religious, or social affairs.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous. The line is traced through the
male. Marriage is outside the family but within the clan. The wife
resides with her husbands family.
Religion: Centres on the ancient Cult of the Bear (Rh. Bairakyn).
The head of the cult, or Waildanbair (Rh. Ruling Bear), is also the
hereditary lord of the whole Beorning clan and is the foremost of
the famous Shape-changers. During their secluded ceremonies,
these men take the form of bears and recreate their ancient legends
and epics using complex dance rituals. These gatherings occur at
specific holy places which have some connection to their patron
Vala Orom (whomthey call Araw).
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanour: Beornings are loners by nature, but enjoy their rare
moments with others. Generous and normally quiet and introspect-
ive, they can become jovial and explosive when in social situations.
Their deep, thundering laughter is legend. As warriors, Beornings
are fierce and often uncontrollable. this particularly true of the rare
shape-changers, for they have a tendency to transform into bears
when outraged or overly stimulated. Once bears, they can attack
with tremendous force, but they have little more than single-minded
instinct to work upon.
Language: St arti ng Languages: Atliduk (S8/W8) and the system of
nature signals called Waildyth (S8/W0). Most Beornings also know
Westron (S6/W6) and the Woodman tongue Nahaiduk (S6/W6).
All owed Adol escence Development : Atliduk (S10/W10), Waildyth
(S10/W0), Westron (S8/W8), Nahaiduk (S8/W8), Logathig

CULTURE/RACE OF NORTH-
WESTERN ENDOR
hl^Cl NOOCNCkC^N
The term Black Nmenrean (S. Mornmenedain) is used
to describe Men of Dnadan stock who are descended from the
Infaithful Nmenrean colonists and
conquerors who came to Middle-earth
during the middle and late Second Age.
These Unfaithful had broken with the
Valar and the Elves who bequeathed
them the island knigdom of Nmenor at
the beginning of the Second Age. Many
worshipped their own idols or paid
homage to the Dark Lord Sauron.
Gradually, the Unfaithful came to
control Nmenor and her colonies, the
greatest of which was centered around
the Havens of Umbar. When Nmenor
was destroyed by Eru in S.A. 3319,
many of the Unfaithful survived in their
refuges in Middle-earth.
Black Nmenreans, therfore, are actually very similar in
physical and cultural character to the Dnedain. Certain changes
have occured after their centuries of seperate development, but both
groups have actively sought to remain relatively pure and true to
their origins.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Strong and imposing, with angular features. Men average
225pounds; women, 150 pounds.
Colouring: After long years in the hot south, the Black
Nmenreans have tanned, grey-brown skin, and black hair. Their
piercing eyes are various shades of grey.
Endurance: Considarable
Height: men average 64; women, 510.
Lifespan: 90-175 years
Race Abilities: Dnadan.
Resistance: Average.
Special Abilities: +25 to all boat handling manoeuvres, +10 to all
melee weaponskill categories.
COl1OkC
Clothing &Decoration: Black and gold are their favoured colours.
They wear rich clothing made of dyed silk and cotton. Gems and
feathers add elaboration. The Karma - Nmenors famous overlap-
ping scale helmsurmounted by a coloured leather fish crest - is still
in use.
Fears &Inabilities: They fear death, but not in battle. Confidence
and passion lead them to belive they can overcome any known
physical enemy.
Lifestyle: Black Nmenrean culture reflects a rigid slant. Their
societies are well-ordered and ruled by force of personality, backed
by harsh law. Dictators and oligarchs hold sway over the people,
most of whom are subject races who serve and pay tribute to the
Black Nmenrean upper class. Warriors are considered the elite,
and most men serve in the army at one time in their lives. This has
enabled them to almost always be at war. Superb craftsmen and
fighters, the Black Nmenreans are experts at ship-building and
naval warfare.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous. The line is traced through the
male.
Religion: Organized religion is the norm among Black
Nmenreans. The most important cults are those pretaining to
death and the afterlife, for these old Nmenreans concerns have
been perpetuated and modified. mummification is the norm. Nmo
is the only Vala accorded respect.
Most revere their own local heroes or gods associated with war,
power,m terror, and the unknown. They see the untamed darkness as
the only frontier they cannot master; therfore they worship it. Those
fewthat still worship the Valar favour Tulkas the strong, the greatest
master of strength and deeds. It is the always laughing Tulkas who
best embodies the spirit of raw strength, for he is quick to make
war, weak of counsel, forthright, and sworn of passion and honour.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanour: Black Nmenreans are generally haughty and self-
centered - rash, confident, and full of pride. They belive in their
own superiority and support the viewthat it is the destiny of their
race to rule middle-earth. Their views have made them quick to
strike a blow; warlike and single-minded, they enjoy a fight. When
in a superior position they will rarely offer quarter.
Language: Starting Languages: They have a strong passion for tradi-
tion and have, therefore, maintained the Adnaic (S8/W8) tongue of
Nmenor in a relatively pure form. Most also know Westron
(S8/W8) and Haradaic (S6/W6) All owed Adol escence Development:
Adnaic (S10/W10), Westron (S10/W10), Haradaic (S8/W8),

Prejudices: Black Nmenreans are biased against nearly every
other people, but their prejudices against the Elves and the
Dnedain are particularly vehement.

CULTURE/RACE OF NORTH-
WESTERN ENDOR
CCk^lk:
The corsairs are descendants of Dnadan rebels who fled from
Gondor in the wake of the kin-strife of T.A. 1432-47. Most settled
in Umbar in T.A. 1447 and began a long struggle for control with
the stronger Haradan and Black Nmenorean elements. Since that
time, modest in breeding with the locals has created a somewhat
distinct group, although their Dnadan roots remain strong. Their
heritage as sailors and merchantmen from southern Gondor still
influences their culture and lifestyle. They long to reclaim Gondor
as their own.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Strong of build. Males average 215 pounds;
women, 145 pounds.
Coloring: corsairs are generally fair skinned and
have grey or bluish eyes and black or dark brown
hair.
Endurance: Considerable. They do not get sea-
sick.
Height: Men average 63"; women, 59".
Lifespan: 95-190 years.
Race Abilities: Dnadan.
Resistance: Normal.
Special Abilities: They get a special +20 bonus for
the following skills: Boat Piloting, Navigation, Rope Mastery,
Rowing, Sailing, Star Gazing, Weather Watching.
COl1OkC
Clothing & Decoration: corsairs favor purple, red, and gold cloth-
ing made from silk or fine cotton. They wear tunics and only rarely
don leggings. Men wear gold collars, while women are well-
adorned with jewelry.
Fears & Inabilities: Disease and illness, and their own natural
mortality.
Lifestyle: Corair culture reflects the conservative elements found
among Gondors aristocracy, only it is carried to an extreme. The
warm coastal influence of Umbar has added some additional influ-
ences, most Black Nmenrean, and the result is a throwback to the
ancient marine culture of Nmenor.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous. Line is tracedthroughmale.
Religion: Corsair religion is preoccupied with Death and Darkness,
and largely revolves around ancestor and hero worship. Great
Nmenrean kings are revered as godlike. Ceremonies dwell on the
perpetuation of the life of the individual and, more importantly, the
lineage. The dead are buried with elaborate fanfare and are laid to
rest ina preserved state, one of pronounced splendor.
Some revere Nmo, the Keeper of the Dead, or Varda.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanor: Aggressive, haughty, determined, embittered - the cor-
sairs have the attitude of royalty in unjust exile.
Language: St art ing Languages: The first tongue of the Corsairs is
Adnaic (S8/W6), since they identify with Nmenor and the line of
the Dnedain. All of themspeak Gondors common speech Westron
(S8/W6), as well as the Haradaic (S8/W6) of Umbars citizenry.
All owed Adolescence Development: Adnaic (S10/W10), Westron
(S10/W10), Haradaic (S10/W10), Apysaic (S8/W8), Atliduk
(S6/W6), Nahaiduk (S6/W6) and Eothrik (S6/W6) (between T.A. 1
- 1856), Eothirric (S6/W6) (between T.A. 1856 - 2510), Rohirric
(S6/W6) (T.A. 2510 onwards).
Prejudices: The Corsairs are a military group and are locked in
constant struggle with their allies the Black Nmenreans and
Haradrim. They look upon both groups with suspicion and some
disdain. The Black Nmenreans, like the Dnedain, have in many
cases married subject peoples and the Corsairs consider this a sign
of weakness. They view the Haradrim as yet another inferior race,
one which must be tolerated. Their greatest enemy is the Northmen
(Rohirrim, woodmen, Beornings, etc,), because they are held to
blame for the wars of the kin-strife.
Professions: All available except Barbarian, Drughn, Kekhavra,
Vracara, Wegech.
Training Packages: All available except Anamartar, Beastmaster,
Dwarven Berserker, Estehildi, FaradrimAran, Infantryman of the

The Dorwinrim occupy the lower Carnen and Uldona valleys
and the hilly region running south from the Redwater to the
northwest shore of the Sea of Rhn - the land called Dorwinion.
They are a mixture of Northman and Easterling stock.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Dorwinrim are slightly larger than most groups labeled as
common men. Males average 155 pounds; females 110 pounds.
Overall, they are somewhat stocky and have wide features; narrow
noses and eye slits are the only exception.
Colouring: Their fair, slightly yellowish complextion is unique.
They have subdued eyes which are usually
brown (like their straight hair), although
some are blue or green.
Endurance: Average.
Height: Men average 59; women, 52
Lifespan: 60-80 years.
Race Abilities: Common Man.
Resistance: Normal.
Special Abilities: +30 to RR versus pois-
ons. +15 acting and public speaking. +10
for boat handling maneuvres.
COl1OkC
Clothing &Decoration: Awide variety of wools and linens. They
wear shirts andpants and adorn themselves modestly.
Fears &Inabilities: Nothing special.
Lifestyle: They are traders and river-men who abandoned their no-
madic past in favour of an urban, albeit rustic life. Dorwinion is
known for its fine wines and strong oils. Hardy vines cover the land
and provide the principal sources of income: grapes and wine. Trees
produce olives and olive oil. Additional revenue comes from the
Sea of Rhn: shellfish products, food, and dyes bring good money
to the Dorwinrim.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous. The line is traced through the
male or female.
Religion: Dorwinadan religion is a prominent and stable element. It
is a unifying force among a people who have no fromal law and
equate authority with power. Donu, a local manifestation of
Yavanna, is the Queen of their pantheon. She is their one MOther
Goddess.
Worship centres around the clannish totems (L. Igana), holy
sysmbols which represent deified heroes blessed by Donu. The her-
oes are belived to have power over the places they influenced dur-
ing life and hold sway over their descendants. Therfore, a family or
clan guards its territory religiously. The totems are also crucial,
since they are belived to have real power and are the sole means of
communication withthe herothey represent.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanour: The Dorwinrim are known for their hardy, hospitable
character. Most favour strong drink and stroy telling and never shy
away from celebration. Their distinct rolling laughter and physical
closeness (e.g., hugging) adds to their reputation of friendliness,
although it is somewhat deceiving; a Dorwinadan may appear closer
than he really is. The Dorwinrimare amazingly loyal to riends, and
distinctly short or cruel with enemies.
Language: St art ing Languages: The Dorwinrim are well-versed in
the commercial tongues of the northwest and north-central Middle-
earth. They speak fluent Westron (S8/W8) and Logathig (S8/W8),
the latter their own home tongue. Since they frequently deal with
the Silvan Elves, many have acquainted themselves with the Silvan

Of all men, none surpass the Drughu in the arts of wood-lore
and wood-craft. This very ancient and diminutive race has long
been tied to the forests and has remained the greatest lot of
woodland warriors ever produced by the Secondborn. Their skills
have in fact guarded their narrow survival, for they are considered
ugly by men and Elves alike and have been hunted and persecuted
since the days of the First Age.
The Drughu are fewin number, and their clans are only found in
the region of Andrast, the high regions of Ered Nimrais and the
forrest of Tawar-in-Dredain. It is rumoured that an isolated clan
survives in the Rast Vorn.
The Drughu have many names. Dredain (S. sing. Dradan) is
the label given them by the Elves, while men use various terms:
Pkel-men, Wild men (Ro. Rg pl. Rogin), or Woses (Westron).
Orcs fear the Drughu and have named themOghor-hai.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Drughu generally have a broad, stumpy profile marked by
wide, flat features, and deep-set eyes. Short, thick legs, heavy lower
bodies, and pronounced brows help give them an eerie character -
unlike any other men.
This uniqueness is accentuated by their peculiar hair growth, for
few Wose men have any hair below eye level. Those that do are
revered, although even they have no more than a slender patch of
black chin hair which lies well belowtheir wide mouths. Nearly all
Wose men are bald from the forehead to the back centre of their
squat skulls, but take pride in the hair they have along the flanks of
the head. Men average 114 pounds; women, 102 pounds.
Colouring: Ruddy skin, black hair, and black eyes. Because the
Drughu have guardedeyes which are dark and set with black pupils,
they appear to gaze from shadowy pools which might be mistaken
at a distance for a pair of cavities. one must get quite close to a
Wose to notice any eye movement at all,
much less any subtle distinctions in the
eyes themselves. this haunting feature is
made even more unsettling when a Wose
is angry; then the pupils glow with a fiery
red hue.
Endurance: Average.
Height: Men average 45; women aver-
age 40.
Lifespan: 30-50 years.
Race Abilities: Drg.
Resistance: Average.
Special Abilities: The wide noses of the Drughu are the most sens-
itive found in man. Even in an open field, they can smell an Orc
before another man can see him. Range 100 upwind, 2000 down-
wind, and 500 in still air. +10 bonus to Awareness categories when
dealing with smells. Together with their strong eyesight, they can
track better than almost any hunting hound. Only running water will
stay their pursuit. This is even true at night, since Drughu are
blessed with superb night-vision.Even in the dark forest of the night
they can see 1000 feet as if it were daylight. +25 to tracking man-
oeuvres; +15 for foraging.
They have the abilitiy to sit for days on end without movement.
With legs crossed, hands on their laps or knees, and eyes closed or
facing downward, they can remain silent as a statue. This a fords
them peace and allows for recall or meditation. Unfortunately, it
apparently does nothing to lengthen their years, for the Drughu gen-
erally die at a young age.
COl1OkC
Clothing &Decoration: They often braid their hair, pulling it back
to join behind in multiple tails. Drughu wear little or no clothing or
adornments. Instead, they prefer to go about relying on their rugged
bodies, using pigments to create imagery. Those that are most
aquainted the other men occasionally don hide leggings and a
breechcloth, and in rugged terrain they employ a distinct high,
thick-soled laced shoe. Beyond these trappings, they have little use
for the costumes of other men.
Fears &Inabilities: Drughu do not like towns and cities.
Lifestyle: Drughu are hunter gatherers. They live in clans of 30-40
individuals made up of 4-6 family groups. Wose culture revolves
around the forests and plants they hold so dear. They are frugal and
eat little, even in the best of times, and they partake of no drink but
water. Being exclusively vegetarion, they live on the gifts of the
woodlands and are quick to acquire an understanding of the nature
and location of nearly every plant in an area - regardless of its size.
Only the Elves and Ents exceed their skills in carving and plant-
lore.
It is for their stone sculpture that the Drughu are best known. They
carve a variety of motifs and beasts, and employ a particular form in
the making of life-like watch-stones (Pkel-men). These are
guardian statues which they place to protect paths, entries, cross-
roads, ant the like. Legends surround the watch-stones, most of
which are true. it is clear that they are enchanted. Orcs fear them
most of all, and with good cause, since the Drughu can communic-
ate with watch-stones of their making and can derive knowledge
fromthe carvings experiences. Some very powerful watch-stones
actually come to life in order to guard their posts - acting instead of
their creators - although in such a case, the Wose sculptor will feel
all the pain of his creation. They place these watch-stones and
hideous statues around the borders of their lands and at various
sensitive sites. Some are used to do no more than dishearten their
foes.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous, producing fewyoung. The line is
tracedthroughthe female.
Religion: Many of the watch-stones stand over the Wose holy sites.
Unlike many of the other men, particularly the Dunlendings with
whom the Drughu are often associated, the Drughu have a strong
tradition of organized worship. This is a pronounced animism which
revolves around a reverence for nature. They hold Eru and the Valar
in proper awe, although they have their own view of the nature of
the masters of the world. Of all the Valar, they worship none more
than Yavanna, the Giver of Fruits and Queen of the Earth, whom
they call Mm-ugu-Mm(Pu. First Mother). It is she who presides
over the kelvar (plants), and it is the plants which breath life into
the world of the Drughu.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanour: Drughu generally seclude themselves from other folk
and do not take on freinds easily, but when they do, they are un-
waveringly loyal. Those that do get to knowthem will be impressed
by their frequent bouts of laughter, since the Drughu will laugth
when others sing. Their rich and unrestrained joviality forms quite a
contrast to their usual demeanour; normally they appear unemo-
tional and slowto speak.
Language: St arti ng Languages: When they do talk, the Drughu use
the guttural Pkael (S8/W5) tongue which is ideally suited to their
deep voices and is alien to that of other men. At an early age they
are taught hand and body motions to send messages, Signaling

Westron (S8/W8), Dunael (S8/W8), Signaling[Drg] (rank 10).
Prejudices: Drughu hate Orcs, Wargs, and Rohirrim. The latter
grouphas occasionally made sport of hunting the Wild Men.

Rangers, Drughn (males only).

Dnedain of Gondor are descendants of the Edain who settled
on the island kingdom of Nmenor during the Second Age. It was
their Nmenorean forefarthers who colonized and conquered much
of Middle-earth. When the Isle of the West sank into the sea during

and founded Gondor, the Realm in Exile. Like all their brethern,
they have traces of Elven and (even a little) Maia blood.

The Dnedain of the lost Realm of Arnor are the descendants of
the Faithful Nmenoreans. Who fleeing the sinking of Westernesse
(the isle of Nmenor) in S.A. 3319, settled in Eriador and founded
Arnor the Realm in Exile. The Dnedain realm of Arnor was
sundered in T.A. 861 into three sister states; Arthedain, Cardolan
and Rhudaur, split between three princes. Cardolan lasted until T.A.
1409 when its King and princes fell to the forces of the Witch-king
at the battle of Amon Sl. For the next 300 years the remnants of
Cardolanon nobility formed petty states and claimed authority.

CULTURE/RACE OF NORTH-
WESTERN ENDOR
HlllOCN
Hillmen are the descendants of the Mebion Bron a group of
Daen who migrated to Eriador at the begining of the Second Age.
This semi-nomadic people are found in the forrested and semi-
forrestedhigh lands of Rhudaur, including the Trollshaws.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Stocky, strong, hearty and quite hairsute (Aslight mustache
is not considered unattractive ona woman).
Colouring: Dark complexion with dark brown or black hair and
dark eyes.
Endurance: Normal.
Height: Men 54 to 58; women 51 to 55.
Lifespan: Short; about 45-60 years
Race Abilities: Daen.
Resistance: Normal.
Special Abilities: None
COl1OkC
Clothing &Decoration: Both sexes dress and wear their hair alike,
tied in three long braids down the sides and back. They often decor-
ate their hair with intricately carved bone rings. Men often sport
grand beards, but all are neatly trimmed and most shave their chins.
Clothing is simple and utilitarian. The Kalth and Kullodo are worn
throughout the year; the latter is a short fur jacket with sleeves
down to the elbows. The Kalth is a sort of skirt or kilt made from
Losrandir (Bl. Feithan) hide that is wrapped just above the navel.
In mid-winter Hillmen add a full-length fur cape and wear high
boots, althoughthey favour moccasins the rest of the year.
Fears &Inabilities: Various superstions, including the belief that
injuries may causes damage to or bring some curse to the victims
spirit, unless protective chants or totems are used. And evil spirits
called Woigh bring sickness; ritual purifications must first be
carrried out to protect the spirit before any other remedies are ap-
plied.
Lifestyle: All Hillmen camps belong to one of the Ne Dreubhan
(Du.NineTribes). Hillmen dislike laws but revere customs, and no
camp raids camps of the same tribe. Tribes do not have defined ter-
ritories, although they have changing regional preferences. Tribes
are ruled by Tiark whose power depends upon their own abilities.
Each of the nine Tiark is eligible to become the newTarg-Arm (Bl.
high chief), when the old one dies. In quiet times the position of
Targ-Arm is largely honorary; however, in emergencies the author-
ity of the Targ-Arm is real and respected.
Daily matters of the camp are governed by the collective wisdom of
the Hunters present. It is not uncommon for the strongest or boldest
individual to act as leader; still, there is no formality to such ar-
rangements. Each camp also had a Wegech (Bl. spirit-knower), a
female Mage who oversees religious affairs. Among the Hillmen,
this is the sole hereditary position. The Wegech also serves as a
matriarch of sorts and, although it is seldom done, she could over-
turn the collective decision of all the Hunters. Only the Tark (Chief)
has more authority.
Hillmen are hunters and thus very dependant on the Losrandir herds
of Rhudaur. They gather some plants, notably Blue Pine nuts, and
cultivate a few herbs, but these efforts merely supplement their
hunting skills. They live in small mobile communities called
Dacaithan, that loosely followthe migrations of the losrandir. hous-
ingis provided by a semi-circular hide house called a Taigh that can
be quikly dismantled and packed up. Each camp has a permanent
sacred winter campsite (Bl. Maigban) in the Trollshaws.
Hillmen society has three clesses: Tiark (sing. Tark, W. Chiefs),
Dhier (sing. Dher, W. Hunters), and Dheusan (sing. Dheus, W.
Makers). Unlike most other cultures, these classes are not based
on sex or blood, but rather upon ability. Hillmen use rigorous test-
ing froman early age to determine a person's status. All children are
strongly encouraged to undertake the tests necessary to become a
Hunter. These consist of survival alone in the wild for the long
winter and the slaying of a Wolf - unaided - in late adolescence.
Those who fail or do not try this rite become Makers; it is they who
perform all non-hunting tasks, from smithing to child care. Their
status is low, but their role is respected and they are protected.
Hunters, of course, hunt and a] so defend the camp. Raiding
between rival camps is almost constant, a form of diversion and
conditioning. All Hunters are eligible to become the newChief; a
series of trials unique to each tribe determine who will run each
camp. This commonly involves the killing of a Cave Bear.
The Hillman passion for raiding greatly affects their approach to
war. Formal "rules" of raiding place a high premium on stealth and
woodcraft. Hillmen prefer to settle feuds by formal combat between
chosen champions, but their external enemies do not believe in such
methods. Always practical, the Hillmen combat these outsiders with
their favorite wartime greeting: a quaint nocturnal ambush in-
volving vastlysuperior numbers.
Marriage Pattern: Descent and inheritance are traced through the
mother; the husband joinshis wife's camp. Children are the respons-
ibility of the nearest hunter among the mother's kin, often an uncle.
Female Hunters, who make up about a quarter of the total, generally
postpone or avoid motherhood.
Religion: Unlike the vast majority of their neighbors, Hillmen ag-
gressively reject both the Valar and the Black Religion of Sauron.
Their attitude is based on their inherent mistrust of foreign ways,
coupled with some strange legends of their ancestors who claimed
in ancient songs to have been "betrayed by both the Light and the
Darkness". In any event, Hillmen are almost as touchy about their
religious practices as are Dwarves. Like the Naugrim they practice
ancestor worship, but among the Hillmen this is centered around a
fearful reverence of powerful Ghosts. Lyrical chants and epic songs
tell the stories of these strange beings.
Hillmen look to the high country surrounding the Trollshaws as sac-
red and actively cherish the rocky escarpments and unyielding hills.
Every winter, Hillmen add venerated objects to hidden, deep pits in
the Highlands. Although mainly used as burial sites for the copper
totems that Hillmen receive at birth, the pits also hold weapons and
jewelry. Ancestral Ghosts (Bl. "Boghain") are said to haunt and pro-
tect the more valuable pits.
Ail-legan (Du. little jewel"), personal totems, are rough lumps of
copper chosen for a child by the Wegech. They are borne until death
and their loss often forces the dishonored Hillman to take his own
life. This is usually the case when a totem is lost to a foe through
cunning or in battle. AHillman's only alternative is to serve the
holder of his totem until it can be recovered by one of the loser's
own family. If the totem's location cannot be determined, the
Hillman may go to the Wegech for another; but in such a case, the
matriarchal Mage will invariably require the performance of an
awful task or quest. Most totems are worn tightlyaround the neck.

Armour: Hillmen generally do not use armor but occasionally don
a heavy hide coat. They do, however, swear by helms. These they
decorate with carved bone and by weaving their own braided hair
through selected holes. Other forms of armor are considered too
heavy and cumbersome for use in the woods.
Weapons: The primary weapon of the Hillmen is a very heavy
spear called the creg. Athrown creg is employed by using a special
hide sling in both hands and hurling it over one's head. It has a short
range (25 feet) but it can pierce the strongest armor. (Treat it as +15
versus Plate or Chain armor.) Light javelins are used for hunting.
Most Hillmen carry knives but use them only for cutting and
carving. Since they rely upon bronze for most of their weaponry,
longer blades are in short supply.

,:|. O.a|..cs+sc+,+l
The berg-dwelling Merimetsstjt emerged as a distinct sub-
culture of the Ystavat Talven during the Urdic invasions of the
Second Age, weathering the ravages of history into the Fourth.
Their berg-delvings wander the waters of Hub Falthol and Caew-i-
Cheldolath, though their hunting parties range as far north as
Whalebone Isle. They are most closely related to the Jaamiehet,
their landborne neighbors on the Cape of Forochel.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ckl:1lC:
Build: Much like the Lumimiehet and the Jaamiehet, the
Merimetsastajat are stocky and well-muscled. They tend to have the
same broad, handsome features as all Ystavat Talven. They are
somewhat lighter than other northern fold, with men averaging 165
lbsand women about 130 lbs.
Coloring: Very fair complexioned, with pale blue or green eyes and
blond to almost white hair.
Height: Short; men average 5'4", with women slightly shorter at
5'1"
Lifespan: The Bay of Forochel is not the safest of homes, and the
life-expectancy of the Merimetsastajat is considerably brief. Men
average about 45 to 55 years, while women average longer at 65 to
80 years.
Race Abilities: Comman Man.
Resistance: +20 bonus versus cold/ice attacks; -20 versus heat/fire
attacks.
Special Abilities: The Merimetsastajat have an acute sense of smell
and can pick up the scent of Man, Orc or land animal from a mile
(5280) downwind and a 100 upwind. (They can also smell Dwarf,
Elf, and Hobbit from the same distance, but unless they have met
with these races before, they are not able to identify the scent).
They receive a +10 bonus to Observation.
COl1OkC
Clothing and Decorations: Almost all clothing is, by necessity, of
fur-lined leather, and tends to be utilitarian, with an emphasis on
warmth and protection against the cold climate. However, the
Merimetsastajat are fond of bright decorations and jewelry (which
can be added or removed with ease, so as not to attract undue atten-
tion while hunting or traveling).
Fears and Inabilities: None. As they live on the sea, the
Merimetsastajat have no fear of water.
Lifestyle: The Merimetsstjt are poor. They survive by whaling,
fishing, hunting and gathering. In the close quarters of a berg-
delving, heimo, suku and perhe affiliations are extremely important.
They do not use domesticated animals of any kind, having no place
for themon their bergs.
Marriage Pattern: Monogamous, with lineage being traced
through the female.
Religion: They pay reverence to the Spirit World, especially to the
spirits of whales. Ceremonial life is left largely to the viisaat and
henkinimittajat, though dancing and story telling rituals are used by
the common Merimetsastaja in his or her relations with the Spirit
World.
C1HCk ^C1Ck:
Demeanor: Though quiet and reserved towards strangers, among
their own kind the Merimetsstjt are often boisterous and playful.
They are generous, open and honest (sometimes to the point of na-
ivete). They are also fearless and persevering, but never foolhardy.
Language: Start ing Languages: Merimetsstjt speak (but do not
write) Labba (S9/W0). Adol esc ent Ski l l De velopment: The
Merimetsstjt also have the opportunity to learn Umitic (S3/W0),
some might also speak a smattering of Westron (S2/W0).
Prejudices: Above all other races, the Merimetsstjt hate ice and
water-drakes.
Professions: No Kekhavra, Vracara, Drughn, Wegech, Bards,
Rangers or Thievies.
Training Packages: All available except Architect, Apothecary,
Beastmaster, Burglar, City Guard, Con Man, Cut Purse, Cloistered
Academic, Farmer, Midwife, Innkeeper, Loremaster, Mercenary,

CO1l11lN Ci1lCN:
Weapons: Dagger, harpoon, javelin and spear.
Armor: Their thick, fur-lined coats act as soft or padded armor.
Clothing: Both women and men wear white or grey, fur-lined, seal-
skin coats and hats worn over very soft sealskin pants. Fur-lined,
leather boots bound withthick and wide leather leggings to keep out
cold and water. They often wear decorative badges, necklaces or
armbands of beads. In the endless cold, thick, fur-lined mittens or
soft leather gloves are worn almost constantly. They may also wear
various forms of pouchesand bags-froma large, hard leather, water-
proof fish pouch to a small, soft leather, herb pouch when they arc
ashore in summer. The pouches are worked and decorated with
beads, leather fringes and embroidery.

The urban Northmen of Rhovanion are descendants of
Eriedain (Second Age Eriadorians) who migrated through the Great
Isen gap or the passes in the misty Mountains during the first six
centuries of the Third Age. They live in the principal towns of the
Nan Celduin (S. River Running Valley) and NanAnnen (S. Long
Lake Valley) in the North, and Mirkwoods East Bight in the South.
The Dalemen, Lakemen, and Waildungs are all urban Northmen.

Clothing & Decoration: Various types of elaborate or practical

in warmer areas; shirts and pants or leggings are worn in cooler
locales. Some imported silks and fine cottons are in evidence. Most
males sport some degree of facial hair.
Fears &Inabilities: Nothing special.
Lifestyle: Avaried, rather cosmopolitan lot. Many are from mer-

the completion of work and to socialize. Eating, gambling, and con-
tests of skill dominated these events. Festival nights bring about

Common Orcs fear the sun and make their
dwellings in caverns beneath the mountains. The
Hithaeglir (Misty Mountains) and the Ered
Mithrin (Grey Mountains) harbour myriad tribes
who prey upon the men of Rhovanion, sometimes
at the direction of Suarons will, often promoted
merely by a greed for plunder. The Orcs inhabit-
ing the peaks surrounding Mordor (Ephel Dath,
Ered Lithui) are more strongly dominated by the
Dark Lord.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: Heavy, with thick hides, short legs, and
long, thin arms. They have grotesque, fanged
faces and random hair growth. Males and females
average 65 pounds.
Colouring: Black or grey hair, black or reddish-
brown eyes, and deep grey or black hides.
Endurance: Tremendous. They can travel for 2
days without rest. Alternatively, they can run for up to 12 hours
without stopping. +20 to exhaustion points (see Section22.3).
Height: Males and females average 4.
Lifespan: Indefinite; certainly hundreds of years, but the nature of
their warlike life permits fewto live past the age of 50.
Race Abilities: Orc.
Resistance: +30 DB andRRbonuses versus heat and cold attacks.
Special Abilities: Orcs sleep during daylight hours, although they
need sleep only once every 3 days (more often to restore Power
Points). Orcish vision inmost darkness is as good as a Mans during
the height of day. When there is barely any light (cloudy, moonless
nights; upper caverns, dungeons), Orcs can see at least 50' perfectly
and fairly well up to 100'. In absolute darkness (deep caverns), they
can see 10'.
COl1OkC
Clothing &Decoration: Skins, leathers, and metal armour; crude,
but well made and effective.
Fears &Inabilities: Natural sunlight and deep, running water. In
full daylight, they only have 60%of normal activity each round; in
artificial or magical daylight, they only have 80%of normal activity
eachround.
Lifestyle: Bred as labourers and warriors, Orcs respect power and
terror above all things. They join and cooperate in substantial
groups only when led by a focused will, some overwhelmingly
strong individual. To them, politics equates with force, and separate
Orc tribes often war. Inter-tribal cannibalismis the norm.
They are, however, quite skilled. Their smiths rival those of the
Dwarves and Elves and, although the items they produce lack
beauty in form, they are exceptionally effective. Orcs are also fine
healers, despite their lack of concern for scarring. Utility is their
principal concern.
Marriage Pattern: Orcs do not marry; they breed. The females live
together in secluded areas which are normally accessible only to the
strongest males. In addition, the females are receptive only to the
fiercest and most attractive males. This results in the strongest off-
spring. The many young are kept together and raised jointly by all
the female Orcs.
Religion: Most Orcs worship Darkness and power. Most revere
Sauron as a god, respecting his ability to induce utter terror

suspicious. They are almost always uncomfortable and, aside from
mealtime or battle, are never happyor at peace.

particularly despise Elves, who they
believe to be a spiteful, wicked, and
wayward race.
Professions: No Barbarian, Drughn,
Kekhavra, Vracara, Wegech. Most
Orcs are Fighters, Rogues, or
Thieves. They make very poor spell
users. Females can only be Laymen.

Following Saurons
resurrection inT.A. 1000 he
began breeding a new race
of Orcs, one capable of
independent and intelligent
action. After centuries of
work, he produced the first
Greater Orcs, and he called
them the Uruk-hai (BS
Orc-race) because they
were more suited to the
formation of societies.
Initially, the Uruk-hai remained close to Sauron and served as
lieutenants and elite guards, but gradually their numbers grew and
their strain strengthened. Their existence remained guarded until
Sauron was willing to show his hand. Nonetheless, in T.A. 2475
they were unleashed in full scale battle formations. They are the
Dark Lords finest goblin troops.
iH:lC^l CH^k^C1Ck
Build: While Uruk-hai have a more human appearance than
Common Orcs, they are still heavy with cat-like eyes, fang-teeth,
and black/grey hides. Theyhave longer, stronger, and straighter legs
than Common Orcs. Males and females average 145 pounds.
Colouring: Black or grey hair, black or reddish-brown eyes, and
black/grey hides.
Endurance: Tremendous. They can travel for 3 days without sleep.
Alternately they can run foruo to 18 hours without stopping. +30 to
exhaustion points (see Section22.3).

Lifespan: Indefinite; certainly hundreds of years, but the nature of
their warlike life permits fewto live past the age of 50.
Race Abilities: Uruk.
Resistance: +30 DB and RR bonuses versus heat and cold attacks.
Special Abilities: Uruk-hai usually sleep during daylight hours,
although they need sleep only once every 3 days (more often to re-
store Power Points). Uruk-hai operate freely in daylight, and their
vision in most darkness is as good as a Mans during the height of
day. When there is barely any light (cloudy, moonless nights; upper
caverns, dungeons), Uruk-hai can see at least 30' perfectly and
fairly well up to 75'. In absolute darkness, theycan see 10'.

often confused with Uruk-hai, but are a distinct race, small in
number but capable and deadly. Their origin is also unclear,

extreme.

ies and limbs. Their tough hides have an inconsistent quality; many

black or brown eyes. They have black blood. Facial hair is sporadic

geons), Trolls can see at least 50 perfectly and fairly well up to
100. In absolute darkness (deep caverns), they can see 10.

innards. They eat folk of other races and take whatever bright
trinkets they might aquire. No society or inner purpose stirs them,
since they unite only when compelled to. Trolls live in scattered
caves and ruins, usually on the edge of civilized lands, and come
forth only at night.

Fighters are non spell users who will find it relatively easy to
develop a variety of different weapons and to wear heavier types of
armour. They are less skilled in manoeuvring and manipulating
mechanical devices such as locks and traps (though they are still
superior to most spell users in these areas). They have the greatest
difficulty learning anything connected with spells. Some literary
examples of a fighter might include Conan the Barbarian, Little
John, and Gimli the Dwarf.

Thieves are non spell users who are specialists at manoeuvring
and manipulating. They have the easiest time learning mechanical
skills (such as picking locks and disarming traps) and are fairly
good at picking up weapon skills. Thieves are also unusually adept
at subterfuge skills (Stalking, Hiding, etc.). They rarely wear heavy
armour, although arm our does not especially hinder the exercising
of their professional abilities (other than limiting their superb
manoeuvring abilities). Some literary examples of Thieves might
include Will Scarlet and Biibo Baggins.

uCCCH
Wegech are hybrid spell users who combine the realms of
Channelling and Essence. They are the shamans of the Hilmen and
their spells deal with combating the powers of Light and Darkness
by allying themselves with the less hostile spirits of nature and the
ghosts of their ancesters.
Prime Stats: Empathy, Intuition, and Self Discipline.
Special: This profession is only available to female members of the
Hillmen culture. Virtually all magic cast by a Wegech is less elegant
than that used in the Westlands (2-3x the standard casting prepara-
tion). Most involves the use of votive tools: a wooden altar for
major healing and prophesying, a graven antler and elk-liver face
paint for exorcising evil enchantments, painted hide body-wraps for
drawing poison and infections. If given time (10x normal prepara-
tion) and the necessary votive trappings, a wegech can achieve spir-
itual healing asa character of double her level.
uCCCH :iCll ll:1:
The Wegech has six base lists. The full descriptions of all the
spells on these lists can be found in Spell Law(pages ???-???). For
a slightly higher development point cost, he may also develop Open
and Closed Channelling spell lists (see Spell Law, pages 9-28) and
the Open and Closed Essence spell lists (see Spell Law, pages 73-
92). Other spell lists may be developed, but will cost a larger
number of development points.
Channels: Channeling direct power froma deity for attacks.
Communal Ways: Diving Information.
Protections: Providing protections from a variety of different types
of hostile forces.
Exorcisms: Repellingundead and banishing demons.
Symbolic Ways: Placingspells ontostone.
Gate Mastery: Summoning Creatures.

GENERATING STATS
Now you must generate the stats which determine your
characters mental and physical prowess. You must generate two
sets of stats for your character: his temporary stats and his potential
stats. Each stat has a value between 01 and 101. Temporary stats are
used to determine your characters capabilities, while potential stats
represent the limits to which your temporary stats may increase
during play.
1COiCk^k :1^1:
You have 600+10d10 points to assign to your 10 temporary
stats. Each prime stat must be assigned at least 90 points and each
other stat must be assigned at least 20 points.
PLAYER OPTION: you can choose to assign stats as you
wish.
If 90 or fewer points are assigned to a stat, the stats value is
equal to the number of points assigned.
If more than 90 points are assigned to a stat, the stats value is
determined by referring to the Stat Assignment Table T-1.2.
Remember, the higher the stat the more capable the character
will be when performing an action using that particular stat.
Player Option: Assign 660 points instead of 600+10d10 points.
This option must be chosen before the 10d10 roll is made.
STAT ASSIGNMENT TABLE T-1.2
Stat........................................................Value
Points..............................................Assigned
100.........................................................190+
99..................................................... 171-189

94..................................................... 106-114
93....................................................... 99-105
92......................................................... 94-98
91......................................................... 91-93
20-90.................................................... 20-90
Note: The minimum points required for a stat above 90 are
equal to 90+[stat value-90].
iC1CN1l^l :1^1:
To determine each of your characters potential stats, take the
corresponding temporary stat and increase it by the roll indicated in
the Potential Stat TableT-1.3.
Astarting potential stat will be at least as high as its temporary
stat. So, if a roll for a potential stat gives a result that is less than its
corresponding temporary stat, the potential stat is instead equal to
the temporary stat.
Player Option: Add a fixed modification (from the column
marked on the Potential Stat Table T-1.3.) to each temporary stat to
obtain the corresponding potential stat. If this option is used no rolls
are made to determine potentials.
POTENTIAL STAT TABLE T-1.3

100.................................................... 99+1d2 +1
Note: See Section 1.4 (RMSS) for guidelines for making 1d2
through 1d9 die rolls.
* - A starting potential stat will be at least as high as its
temporary stat. So, if a roll for a potential stat gives a result that is
less than its corresponding temporary stat, the potential stat is
instead equal to the temporary stat.
- These modifications are only used if the fixed modification
option is used for all stats.
:1^1 hCNO:C:
For each temporary stat, look up the corresponding basic stat
bonus from the Basic Stat Bonus Table T-2.1. Record these values
in the appropriate spaces in the stats section of your Character
Record Sheets. For a given stat, the stat bonus used in the RMSS
is the sum of the characters basic stat bonus, the characters racial
stat bonus, and any special stat bonus the character may have.

ADOLESCENT SKILL DEVELOPMENT
During the early years of your life (i.e., his adolescence), your
character will develop skills and skill categories, based on his
cultural background. Each skill and skill category that is developed
will increase its rank by a fixed number of ranks. The exact number
of ranks can be found on the adolescent rank table given with each
race/culture.
On your character record sheet, you should record each of your
characters skills and skill catergories that receive adolescence
ranks.
HChh k^Nl:
The Adolescence Rank Table for your race/culture indicates a
number of hobby ranks. These hobby ranks may be used to increase
the ranks of any combination of skill and/or skill categories.
However, the following restrictions apply:
No skill or skill category may be increased by more ranks than the
maximum ranks that normally may be developed when advancing
a level.
The skill or skill rank developed must have a development point
cost of less than 40.
1^lCN1: ^ND l^u:
Your character receives a number of talent points during
adolescence as indicated in the Adolescence Rank Table. The use of
talent points isdetailed inthe next section.
:1^k1lN l^NO^C:
Your character starts out with a number of language skill ranks
as indicated in the appropriate culture description.
^DDl1lCN^l l^NO^C :llll k^Nl:
Your character receives a number of additional language skill
ranks during adolescence. Each of these ranks may be allocated to
the allowed languages listed for your characters culture. The
maximum number of ranks that may be developed during adoles-
cence is also provided for each language. Remember, spoken and
written skills for each language must be developed seperately.

BACKGROUND OPTIONS
Each culture gives a number of Talent Points to spend. These
points can be spent on the available Background Options, listed in
the Cultural Descriptions. Your character can also increase the
number of talent points he has to spend by taking flaws, which
decrease the cost of talents.
Note: Some background options may be restricted as
shown in the description of your culture.
Acharacter canbuy as many talents as they want withinthe
restrictions of each category. Acharacter cantake no more than
four flaws.
Afull description of all the background options can be found on
the following pages.
Every talent, as well as flaw, should have some form of history
with it. The story should explain how/why the character gained the
talent/flaw. Combining this with the culture descriptions will help
you develop a back story for your character,
work out his motivation, drives, ambitions and
ultimately his personality.

the GM. The vow you have made will not inconvenience you much in your daily
activities (e.g., giving10% tithe to the church, showing respect towards politicians,
or never wearing black clothes, etc.). If you fail to fulfil a vow at any time, some
calamity will fall onyou. The severity of the calamity depends on the severity of the
vowyou took. The Gamemaster must give the final approval for anyvow you wish
to take. [-3 points]
Vow(minor)- AsVow (lesser), except the vow will affect youon a dailybasis, but
not prohibit you from functioning fairly normally (e.g., chastity, eating no meat,
never sleeping ina coveredarea, etc.). [-7 points]
Vow(major) - As Vow (lesser), except the vow will affect you oftenduring a typ-
ical day. Most people will become aware of your vow after only bei ng with you a
fewhours. Thisvowalso limits you insome significant way(e.g., never usingedged
weapons, never keeping more moneythan needed toclothe yourself, never speaking,
etc.). [-15points]
Vow(greater) - As Vow(lesser), except the vow will affect almost every one of
your decisions. People will become aware of your vow quickly, and can use it to
manipulate you into performing or preventing a particular task (e.g., aiding those
who ask, challenge all who wrong you, fight wit ha lesser weapon than your foe,
etc.). [-20points]
WeaponBane- All weaponskills (except skillsin your primary weaponcategory)
are now classified as restricted for you. Your primary weapon cat egory is the one
withthe cheapest development point cost. [-15points]
:iCCl^l l^u:
Nowand then, something truly bizarre occurs to a person. This
has happenedto you.
DarkTemptation- Youhave learned one evil spell list upto 50th level. To receive
the knowledge of this list, you had to consort with dark and evil things. You have
become taintedby this evil and are forever temptedto the Dark Side. The GM will
control the details, but youare constantlyin a spiritual battle between what youknow
is good and the evil inside of you. Youbegin the game with 10d10 corruptionpoints,
and all corruptionpoints gainedlater are doubled. [-10points]
Dependent (minor) - You have a person in your life that you deeply care about.
This dependent may be used against you inorder to persuade you to do somethi ng
youwould normallybe against. Inaddition, your dependent could inadvertently walk
intoa situationthat requires you to rescue them. For instance, your child could follow
you into a haunted house wanting to see what you are doing. Your dependent re-
quires you to protect him in some way (to be a disadvantage). Afamily that stays at
home in the country, free from harm is not a dependent. Nor is your brother who
happens to be the greatest swordsman in the Northern plains. If they are able to pro-
tect themselves, they are not dependant's. Your dependent is a single person of aver-
age ability. [-5points]
Dependent (major) - As Dependent (minor), except you have more than one
dependent, or youhave one person who hasbelowaverage capabilities. [-10 points]
Dependent (greater) - As Dependent (minor), except you have more than one
dependent andthey all have belowaverage capabilities. [-15 points]
Duty (minor) - You have a responsibilityto a particular individual or organization.
Whenever they call upon you to do something, you are duty-bound to cease
everything you are working on and take care of the situation. Aduty is something
imposed upon you from the outside, not something you feel you have to do (i.e., a
Sense of Duty). Youmaydetermine exactlywhoor what youhave a duty to, but the
GM must approve it. Once per month, the GM will make a roll to determine if you
are called to duty during that month. The percentage chance that you will be
summonedis 25%. [-5points]
Duty (major) - As Duty (minor), except the chance of being summoned is50%. [-
10 points]
Duty(greater)- AsDuty (minor) except the chance of being summoned is75%. [-
15 points]
Friendslayer - Whenever youare casting an attack spell and the spell fails, youdo
not roll on the attack spell fumble table. Instead, the spell affects one of your allies.
The GMrandomly determineswhoit affects, andthe friend may make a normal RR.
If there are no friends within the range of the spell, then roll a failure normally. [-10
points]
Lackof Scope- You have difficultycontrolling the scope of your spells. The area
of effect for eachof your spells is halved(roundedup). For example, a spell that can
affect one personwill still affect one person; but spell that had a 10foot radius would
be halved to a 5 foot radius. This only affects spells with anArea of Effect with a
radiusor # of targets. [-20points]
Lackof Time - You have difficulty making your spells last as longasthey should.
All of the spells you cast have their duration reduced in half (rounded up to t he
nearest round). [-20points]
Magic Allergy(minor)- You have a severe allergyto magic. Youmaychoose the
realm that you are allergic to. Whenever you try touse magic from that realm (either
spells or magical items), there is a 50% chance that you will dropto the ground ina
convulsion. While youare convulsing, you can an perform no actions. The convul-
sions last for d10rounds, after whichyou mayact normally. If you are near someone
(within 10) who usesa magic itemor castsa spell fromthe realm you are allergic to,
there is a 10%chance that youwill fall into a convulsion. [-10 points],
Magic Allergy(major)- As MagicAllergy (minor), except applies tomagic from
two different realms. [-20 points]
Magic Allergy (greater) - As Magic Allergy (minor), except applies to magic
from three realms. [-40 points]
Magically Susceptible - You are particularly susceptible to magic. You may
choose how vulnerable you actually are and to which realms your vulnerability ex-
tends. You may receive a -25 penalty to your Resistance Roll for spells from one
particular realm (you choose), or you may receive a -15 penalty to your Resistance
Rolls fromall spellsandspell devices. [-15points]
Magically Vulnerable - You are especially vulnerable to magic. Any spell cast
with you as the target receivesa modifier of+10to its roll (either the BARor EAR).
[-10 points]
Magic Bane- You have a difficult time learningspells. All skills inthe Spell group
are classified as Restrictedskills. [-20 points]
Poor Control - When you cast a non-attack spell that fails, you must roll on the
Attack spell Fumble table. If you cast an attack spell that fails, you must add 10 to
your spell failure roll. [-7points]
Power Blind- You are partially blindto the power aroundyou. You receive a -10
penaltyto the Power Awarenesscategory. [-10 points]
Power Drain- You drain power from spell adders andmultipliers. Anyspell adder
that youuse has its pluses(or class if you are usingthe Treasure Companion) reduced
by one. For example, if you were inpossession of a +3 adder, inyour hands it would
act as a +2 adder. Also, any multiplier you use will have its multiplier reduced by
one, so a x2 multiplier becomes a x1 multiplier. The power in the adder and multi-
plier will return immediately when it is given to someone without this flaw. [-20
points]
Power Leakage - You cannot store power like most people. Your power point
progressionis loweredby twopoints. For example, if your normal power point pro-
gression is0 65 43, your actual progressionis -2 4321. [-20 points]
Repulsive Habit (minor) - You have a habit that is considered repulsive by the
majority of society. You may choose the habit (subject to the GMs approval). You
must make a conscious effort to perform this habit whenever possible. When people
notice your habit, they will tend to regardyou withdisdain, possibly loathing. Your
habit annoys people, but does not disgust them. This habit couldrange from always
boasting loudly toall around you, to having badbreath, torelievingyour self in pub-
lic. Again, the GMhas the last sayonany habit. [-5points]
RepulsiveHabit (major) -AsRepulsive Habit (minor), except people are disgus-
tedby your habit. [-10points]
Repulsive Habit (greater) - As Repulsive Habit (minor), except your habit
makes everyone in the roomget upand leave. [-15 points]
Rival/NPC(minor) - You have a rival. Your relationship to this rival and what
caused you to become rivals are upto you. Your rivalry couldbe romantic, profes-
sional, or personal. Whenever possible, your rival will do his best toout do you, even
l13
hinder you. This rivalry is rarely, if ever, violent. Both of yourespect each other too
much to kill one another. You will even endanger yourself and your comrades if it
gives youthe chance to out do your rival. The rival is either a personal, romantic, or
professional rival. The GMmust approve all rivalries. [-5 points]
Rival/NPC(major) - As Rival/NPC(minor), except the rival is some combi na-
tionof personal, romantic, and/or professional. [-10 points]
Rival/NPC(greater) -As Rival/NPC(major), except the rival hasanupper hand
in the rivalry (either due tostatus or some other advantage). [-20points]
Rival/PC(minor)- As Rival/NPC(minor), except the rival is another player char-
acter [-10points]
Rival/PC(major)- As Rival/NPC(major), except the rival is another player char-
acter. [-15 points]
Rival/PC(greater) - As Rival/N PC(greater), except the rival is another player
character. [-25points]
Secret (minor) - You have a secret that if discovered will cause you much embar-
rassment, pain, or even death. You maychoose the actual secret you are keepingand
it can be related to another flaw you have. You also may choose what couldhappen
to you if the secret was revealed. The GM must approve all secrets. You must do
your best to keep your secret; you are terribly embarrassed about the situation and
will do whatever it takesto keep it quiet. If the secret were found out, it wouldcause
yougreat embarrassment. [-5points]
Secret (major) - As Secret (lesser), except if the secret is discovered, it would
cause you to be either exiled or imprisoned or it would cause you to be injured
severely (but not killed). [-10 points]
Secret (greater) - As Secret (lesser), except if the secret is di scovered, it would
cause your death. [-15points]
Secret Identity - You have an alternate identity that you keep hidden from the
general public. Youactually lead a double life, one asyourself andone as your alter-
ego. You also have a group of people who are interested inwho you really are, thus
making you cautious about who you disclose your identity to. The GM must ascer-
tain that there is really a need for a secret identit y, or that there is someone or
somethingthat cares about the charactersreal identity. [-10points]
Stat Penalty (minor) - Youreceive a special penaltyof -3 to a random stat. [-10
points]
Stat Penalty (major) - As Stat Penalt y (minor), except the penalty is -5. [-20
points]
Stat Penalty (greater) - As Stat Penalty (minor), except the penalty is -8. [-30
points]
TerribleLuck- When ever you roll a 01the action you are attempting fails in the
most complete way possible. Equipment you are using breaks (magi c items get a
RR); you fall and injure yourself, virtually anything the GM can conceive. The only
restriction isthat whatever happenscannot be instantlyfatal. For example, a rope you
are climbing could break, provided that there was a way; nomatter how small, that
youcouldsurvive the fall. [-10 points]
The Slain- You have a special vulnerability to a particular race. The GM chooses
the race you are vulnerable to, but it cannot be your own. You may be vulnerable to
the hal f race of your race (i.e., an elf may be vulnerable to half-elves, etc.).
Whenever youreceive a critical fromsomeone of that race, the critical is resolved as
a Slaying critical. Needless to say, youtendto avoid that race whenever possible. [-
20 points]
Unlucky- You have bad luck. All of your fumble/failure ranges are increased by
one. For example, in normal manoeuvres; you will fumble on a resul t of 01 to 06
(insteadof 01to 05). [-10 points]
Unmagical - Youare naturally unmagical. You receive a soecial penalty of -10 to
all spell casti ng static manoeuvres, BARs, EARs, to the Power Manipulation cat-
egoryandPower Awareness category. [-15points]

APPRENTICESHIP DEVELOPMENT
After the early years of life, your character will develop his
apprenticeship skills. Based upon his five Development Stats,
your character receives a certain number of skill development
points (DPs):
DPs =(Ag + Co +M e+Re +SD) 5
These DPs may be used to:
Increase the ranks of your characters skills and/or skill categories.
Obtain training packages.
Obtain extra stat gain rolls.
:1^ND^kD Di CC:1:
For your profession, each category has a standard development
point (DP) cost associated with it. Each skill has a standard
development point cost equal to the DPcost of its skill category.
There are four types of development point costs:
None - Afewskill categories have a DP cost of -. The rank of
one of these skill categories may not be increased by allocating DPs
(e.g., Rogues have no base spell lists, so there is no DPcost for the
SpellsOwn RealmOwn Base Lists category).
Single Number(#) - A skill or skill category with a single
number DPcost may have its rank increased by one by allocating
(i.e. expending) DPs equal to its DP cost. The rank of such a skill or
skill category may only be increased by one during the skill
development process (i.e., once each level advancement).
Two Numbers(#/#) - A skill or skill category with a two
number DPcost (e.g., 2/6, 3/7) may have its rank increased by one
by allocating (i.e., expending) DPs equal to the first number or it
may have its rank increased by two by allocating DPs equal to the
sum of the two numbers. The rank of such a skill or skill category
may be increased by a maximum of two during the skill develop-
ment process.
Three Numbers(#/#/#) - A skill or skill category with a three
number DPcost (e.g., 3/3/3) may have its rank increased by one by
allocating (i.e., expending) DPs equal to the first number or it may
have its rank increased by two by allocating DPs equal to the sum
of the first two numbers or it may have its rank increased by three
by allocating DPs equal to the sum of the three numbers. The rank
of such a skill or skill category may be increased by a maximum of
three duringthe skill development process.
V^kl^hlC Di CC:1:
Some of the standard development point costs for your
profession may vary based upon a number of factors.
V^kl^hlC Di CC:1: Ck uC^iCN:
There are seven Weapon Group skill categories:
Weapon1-HConcussion
Weap0n1-HEdged
Weapon2-handed
Weapon Missile
Weapon Missile Artillery
Weapon Pole Arms
Weapon Thrown
You may rearrange the DPcosts for these skill categories. This
arrangement is subject to GM restrictions and the race/culture
restrictions outline for your culture/race.
V^kl^hlC Di CC:1: Ck :iCll O:Ck:
The DPcosts for a spell list skill rank increasesbased upon the
number of the rank being developed.
In addition, there is a DPcost increase based upon how many
spell lists have already had ranks developed during the current
level:
For the first five lists developed the DPcost is normal.
For the 6th through 10th lists developed the DPcost is doubled.
For lists beyond the 10th, the DPcost isquadrupled.
CCCOi^1lCN^l CVCkO^N ^ND kC:1klC1CD
:llll C^1CCklC:
Not all skills within a category are necessarily developed at the
same rate. Because some races and/or professions develop specific
skills at different rates, some specific skills might be designated as
either Occupational, Everyman, or Restricted (e.g., dwarves might
be good at most Athletic Endurance skills, but Swimming is
something theyare not comfortable doing).
If a skill is designated as Occupational, for every rank developed,
the character gains three ranks. Acharacter cannot develop part
of a rank to gainfewer than three ranks.
If a skill is designated as Everyman, for every rank developed, the
character gains two ranks. Acharacter cannot develop part of a
rank to gain fewer thantwo ranks.
If a skill is designated as Restricted, for every two ranks de-
veloped, the character gains one rank.
Note that the skill remains in its standard category (and the
category is not affected in any way). Some skills are restricted by
their very nature (these are indicated in italics on the skill category
definitions).
Unless a GM decides otherwise, the special skill-classifications
(i.e., Occupational, Everyman, Restricted) specified for the
professions take precedence over those specified for cultures and by
the skill category definitions. Similarly, the special skill classifica-
tions specified for the culture takes precedence over those specified
by the skill category definations.
These classifications do not apply to skill ranks gained through
training packages or adolescent skill development.
1k^lNlN i^Cl^C:
During the apprenticeship skill development process, you may
allocate DPs to obtain training packagesfor your character. Training
packages provide the following:
Rank increases for skills and skill categories.
Extra stat gain rolls.
Certain special background details.
Training packages are divided into two types: lifestyle (L) and
vocational (V). Normally, a character may only develop one
lifestlye training package. Each training package has a specific
Development Point cost based upon your characters profession. In
addition, each training package increases your characters age by a
fixed amount; i.e., it takes time to train.
C1k^ :1^1 ^lN kCll:
During the apprenticeship skill development process, you may
allocate DPs to get extra stat gain rolls (see RMSS page 36, section
7.3). For every 8 DPs allocated, you may make a stat gain roll for a
stat of your choice.
