Adventures in the Sea of Rhun?
« on: May 24, 2017, 04:26:36 PM »
I'm looking to run a Rolemaster adventure in the Sea of Rhun (in Tolkien's Middle Earth), and am wondering if anything was ever published for that area: maps, regional books, adventures, etc. I'm not really finding much. Any help is appreciated.

My group had ALL the middle earth adventure books, but I don't recall seeing a Rhun book tbh!

Perils on the Sea of Rhun was published as MERP module. Perhaps you can find it on ebay or so.

Nice! I wasn't aware of that one; I will definitely look for it!

Thanks very much!

You can look also on River Running that focus on the Dorwinion area, with lots of information on wine trading!

Ok, I ordered a copy of Perils on the Sea of Rhun, and I was able to look at a copy of the River Running. Both supply some great information. The one last thing I'm missing though is a good map. The back page of the River Running has a little inset map, but it doesn't have many features; and I'm not ruse if Perils has one at all. Does anyone know if there are any Fenlon-style maps (those wonderful maps used for so many of the old MERP modules) for Rhun?

Perils has a one page map covering all the area from the Iron Hills, Carnen valley, Dorwinion and the Sea of Rhun.

map (ouf 4.2 out of 5mb)
 i remember a module never published (copyright ) the inland sea (try to find chris work, fan group work )
im not so very fan because sandbox too too overpowered in this zone by the "old ice writer" (as court of ardor etc..)
theory , dilema of blue wizard in this aera with dilema of morgoth's presence against sauron presence...(confusion of first age second age third age )
for me third age is the age of men, no magic etc..

Wow, that is great! I read the introduction, and it looks like it was a module on its way to publication until the bankruptcy of ICE. They then published it for free. They really did give a very detailed history of the region, which is perfect for me. Thanks so much for that!
