Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

Hi all, sorry for the extended absence. I should have more time again for work on HoME now that Online Con is finished.

Ready for flow!

I went through the fellowship B threads and posted my thoughts on where they're at / some quick updates / a few new ideas for Ugluk & the unique squad. Hopefully we can get those threads started back up again.

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

I had a very different idea for what Paternity Leave would be like than what it has actually been like. I will try to check in again soon. Ironically it might be when I get more of a routine with going back go work before I'm able to post consistently again.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

We need to decide on Moria _____ vs _____ of Moria

e.g.
Moria Cave Troll vs Cave Troll of Moria
Moria Orcs vs Orcs of Moria
etc.

Any preferences?
@White Knight @Ronin @infectedsloth @Ninja Status

I know I'm probably missing someone... sorry

_____ of Moria
@Splash
@Chris Perkins
@TREX
@capsocrates
@Shiftrex
@MasterScaper1


Moria _____

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

I like "Moria ___" (Moria Cave Troll & Moria Orcs) better for 2 reasons:

1) Shorter name. Always nice to go with shorter version for fitting on a card when possible.
2) Alphabetical books group similar cards with either bonding or auras together better with this method. Moria Cave Troll & Moria Orcs are a lot more likely to be the same army than Moria Orcs and Mordor Orcs (not a great example because Moria & Mordor both start with an 'M', but still...)


Edit: I'm changing my vote to "X of Y" for the reasons articulated below by Splash & TREX. I'm convinced by them that the dual in-world rationale of 'Scape & LOTR is more important that the benefits of shorter & alphabetized better.

Leaving my original thoughts in strikethrough above for preservation of the discussion.

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

"___ of ____" is more in theme with classic 'Scape (Shades of Bleakewoode, Zombies of Morindan), just my two cents.
Thanks for calling me up!

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

Im not part of this group but am a big fan of LoTR so take it for what it is worth. Examples of terminology from their world.
1. Men of Gondor, soldiers of gondor
2. Riders of rohan
3. Orcs of moria
4. Orcs of mordor
5. Ranger of the north
6. Hobbits of the shire
The terminology "of" is used extensively in middle earth if that is something you want to preserve. I can see wanting to shorten the names for card creation. I prefer the tone and flavor of the world that the characters are from to come through on their card representation. Carry on gentlemen and good luck on your project.

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

That is persuasive to me also. I'll start a tally in the post I made.

Trex you are welcome to contribute to whatever degree you choose
