I need help with my Lord of the Ring campaign. We start in Bree but thats all I got. I need lots of help what I am useing to write it is a blank page.. It would be a free world campaign. Note: we use playtest rules. Note 2:It's only two players for now but we start with 33 Hp and a magic item of there chose.(I do huge damage with may belt of hill giant strength.) I will post the finished product when it's done.
We are useing this map.

Try searching forum.rpg.net for "Lord of the Rings" and "The One Ring" because some people have posted some great campaign ideas over there.

Personally I cannot think of a more difficult world in which to both create adventures or to use the D&D rules.

Thanks for the help. I made custom monsters for it like a goblin warg rider.

Who has some ideas for a campain. I have started it "You are in the prancying pony inn in bree the it is crowded and loud in the inn dwarves hobbits and men are about in the inn you see some hobbits go up stairs with a man who appers to be a ranger but you go back to your drinking. minits later you see them leave an hour later you leave the inn and as you go down the cobble stone road to your house you hear some horses and turn around an see 5 black riders rushing into the inn."
As you can see the story we fallow will be the main story we will end up at helms deep and all those big battles. but I need some ideas as I'm not a good writer.

 Been awhile since I have watched those movies ... since you want them be at Helm's Deep ...

Have them make their way to Edoras before the Fellowship gets there. They have to deal with Wormtounge as well. Maybe Grima sends them off to what he hopes is certain death, but the PC survive. They come back in time to join the march to Helm's Deep and the attack of goblins that happens along the way.

They could then join up with the Rohans, have them have to go help round up the rest of the forces to take to the battle in Gondor. You could have goblin and orc forces try and stop them. Maybe a rouge orc general who is pissed about Helm's Deep and is tracking the PC. He gets a group of his best men to follow him.

That way the PC has some attachment to the Fellowship, and might come in contact with them if you so desire.

If I come up with some other ideas I will post them for you
Nice. But i'm baseing it more off the book rather than the movie. but becuse of how close the movie and book are I can use those ideas. Quick up date here is the new virsion.
 

"You are in the prancing pony inn in Bree the it is crowded and loud in the inn dwarves hobbits and men are about in the inn you see some hobbits go upstairs with a man who appears to be a ranger but you go back to your drinking. Minutes later you see them leave an hour later you leave the inn and as you go down the cobble stone road to your house you hear some horses and turn around and see seven black riders rushing into the inn you rush back to your house and go to sleep wondering what the black riders were looking for."


The next morning


“You wake up with a stir the sun barley rising you head to the inn to ask about the black riders it is not to long before you get there the door broken down there is no sing of Butterbur or Nob the inn is odd when empty a town guard walks in and asks you “Do you know what happened here?” You answered “I saw seven black riders rush into the inn last night.” “Black riders? They must have been the same ones who broke down the gate.” The conversation goes on for a few more minutes and then the guard leaves on urgent work you decide to go on a trip with your friend heading back to your house you stop at the blacksmith and buy a new dagger when you get back to your house you head to Fornost on Chetwood road”

Do you not think that a guard might find it odd that the PC know about the black riders. He might have them followed or at least think they were part of it. You could always run with that. Not sure how you would get them to Edoras and things that follow though.
It's a work in progress. Note: the guard knows you
This is what I just typed up.

The next day

“You arrive at Fornost at noon and find your friend at the inn. You talk about the black riders so you and your friend decide to go to Edoras after a quick stop at Lond Daer. So you and your friend go to your friend’s house it is in the middle of town and is the largest house in town near the market square it is easy to get the supplies you need for your trip”

I will post the finished product as a PDF or just a normal text.

 This is it. Just copy paste it onto word-pad or Microsoft office. hope it's good. Note you can add any encounters you want.Smile

 

If a character is a hobbit they live in Bree otherwise it can be either a man or dwarf but if an Elf they live in Fornost.

The next day


“You get back onto Andrath Greenway road and head for Lond Daer two days later you start fallowing      the southern side of Gwathlo down to Lond Daer and get there by night fall you buy rooms at the Gwathlo inn” now you can buy what you want at the market if you have a new PC they can start playing now.


“Two days later you start heading to the Gap of Rohan and make it by night fall two days later as you are setting camp a group of 10 orc minions attack the battle lasts 2 hours you finish setting up camp and go to sleep”

“You start the journey to Edoras as you pass Isenguard you can see smoke rising from it you pass quickly. The next day you are attacked by a Troll the battle lasts most of the day you have to set up camp only after two hours of travel. “


The next day


“You are able to get to Edoras by night fall. As you enter you see a man fleeing the city and hear a guard yell “Good riddance with you Wormtongue.” You enter the city and find rooms in the Snowbourn inn. The next day all those in Edoras are told to head out to Helms Deep” Now would be a good time to head to the market and buy whatever you need.


“Midday you are attacked by a group of Goblin warg riders the battle lasts 2 hours you reach Helms deep by night fall and are told to man the walls for the battle of Hornburg the orcs attack by night fall”


Note it was hard to put in months of battles and travel.


Date March 3 1019 the battle of Hornburg begins


“The battle lasts all night and most of the day it ends at noon. Theoden sets off for Isenguard and reaches there the following day. You set off to Minas Tirith two hours behind the wizard Gandalf. You reach there on March ninth you are told by a general of Gondor to head to Osgiliath.”


“You rush back to Minas Tirith on the 13 and report that Osgiliath was lost. The following day Minas Tirith is besieged.  On the 18 the siege ends and you are told to head to Mirkwood to brake the siege ate Dale.” This is where it all ends do whatever you want but first you have to break the siege at Dale.
