Middle Earth d20

At one time, EN World hosted [MENTION=363]ColonelHardisson[/MENTION] 's Middle Earth d20 site, a place for replicating all things Middle Earth for adventuring using d20 rules sets. Those pages are lost to the mists of EN World, but here we can recreate some of what was once hosted there.

(1) A start: Replicating the Fellowship of the Ring as a low-level party using 3.0 d20 rules.

[sblock]THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING

This is a conversion of the characters of the Lord of the Rings into D&D stats, using the assumption that since Middle Earth is a relatively low-magic world, the best way to simulate it is with low-level characters.

1. RACES

Hobbits: As D&D Halflings (except with big, hairy feet)

Dwarves: As D&D Dwarves

Elves:

Noldor: As Grey elves, with half-celestial temple

Sindar: As High elves, with half-celestial template

Wood elves: As D&D elves

Men:

Rohrrim/Gondorian: As D&D humans

Numenoreans: As D&D half-elves, with the extra feat and skills of a human

Gnomes: non-existent

Half-orcs: as NPCs only (Saurman’s Uruk-hai)
