    Default Lord of the Rings Game Proposal

    So this is my proposal thread for the LOTR one-thread (or multiple thread) roleplay.
    We are going to be playing as a group of adventurers trying to accomplish a certain goal. I suppose what that is exactly depends upon the setting, but we have multiple options, all set during the watchful peace before Sauron's return to Mordor.

    Option 1: Wilderland

    Spoiler for Map of Wilderland




    We are a group of adventurers/fellowship located in the Wilderland. This would likely bring us into contact with the Men of the Anduin, the Dwarves of Erebor, Elves of Lothlorien and Mirkwood (As well as some more unsavoury powers) as well as the possibility to tread in lands that don't get a lot of love, such as Rhun or Dorwinion.


    Option 2: Eriador

    Spoiler for Map of Eriador




    Same premise, except in Eriador. Group of adventurers getting up to shenanigans in the fallen kingdom of Arnor, with points of interest being Angmar and the Misty Mountains or the ruined Arnorian cities. The setting could tread into less familiar territory by heading down into Enedwaith and Dunland, also.


    Setting 3: Dwarf-Kingdom

    Spoiler for Map of Moria




    Something we tried before but with limited success. We are either members of Balin's expedition to Moria or Dwarf adventurers looking to found a new Dwarven Kingdom. Would involve mainly underground exploration and adventure against whatever awaits in the darkness beneath the mountains.


    I'd appreciate further suggestions/feedback, as well as who will play and/or help GM.

    If we do Moria, lets just be careful not to dig too deep. You know what can be awoken in the darkness of Khazad-dum... shadow and flame.

    I may as well add a poll, then, unless anyone has any further suggestions

    Wilderland, but only if I can be a lost prince of Rhovanion. (or a not so lost one, depending on the date the game takes place in)

    So players are all playing one kingdom? I would have thought players would be playing separate kingdoms

    We aren't really playing as one kingdom. Its more a band of adventurers that could turn into a kingdom.

    If we did separate kingdoms, we would see the failures of previously done LOTR settings happen again.

    My vote for Moria, of course

    I'd be interested in helping out with story line/plot for whichever setting.
