Designed to appeal to both new and existing players, Eaves of Mirkwood includes a four-panel “Loremaster’s Screen” decorated with an image of the city of Lake-town on the outside and a number of commonly used reference tables on the inside. In addition, it comes with a 32-page adventure module that tells the story of a party travelling from Woodmen-town to Lake-town through the forest of Mirkwood.
The Eaves of Mirkwood adventure can be dropped into any ongoing campaign, or used as an introduction to Adventures in Middle-earth for new players. The adventure includes notes and guidelines for novice Loremasters, as well as a streamlined set of the game rules and six pre-generated characters. This allows players to play the adventure without the Player’s Guide and Loremaster’s Guide.
The Adventures in Middle-earth roleplaying game has been a hot item, reaching the #4 slot on ICv2’s most recent list of top-selling roleplaying games (see “Top 5 Roleplaying Games--Spring 2017”).
