System

The game system will be FATE.

For those who haven’t played FATE, don’t worry, all will be revealed in the first session.

For the FATE veterans, note that each character will have an aspect that is either their race or, in the case of humans, their culture. Thus, the aspect “Elf” covers distant vision, light movement, attunement with nature, song, arrogance and so on, without needing to specify all of these as separate aspects. Similarly “Rohirrim” encompasses skill with horses, battle frenzy, suspicion of strangers and so on, while “Disguised Angel” covers a Wizard’s supernatural abilities. (Gandalf also has the aspect “Affinity with Fire”, while Radagast has “Affinity with Animals”.)
