MIDGAAD Bill Gant, 1992. (And unofficial than s to I.C.E.!

) MIDGAAD is one of the worlds of the Kethrian family, and its name translates to "mid" or "Middle Earth", a world where magic is quite strong. Battles are fought on two levels; physical combat and magical combat. Most common nowledge of Midgaad has a remar able source; the Terran professor John Ronald Reuel Tol ien, who described a "fictional" world of fantasy in various writings around AD 1945. Many inaccuracies (allegories?) in Tol ien's wor s are evident, but perhaps another P-Midgaad is being described. Nevertheless, it is uncanny how much is true. How could this farsighted Terran have any nowledge about Midgaad at all? Did he travel to Midgaad? Did he meet someone from Midgaad visiting Terra? Of course, Midgaad is where the Sindarin of Harn originated, and probabl y the Khuzdul as well. To reach the Blessed Realm, the Sindarin come by way of Kethira, and many chose to remain there, at least temporarily. The reason for the Khuzdul migration to Kethira is more obscure. Some Khuzdul myths have reported tales of sweeping wars in Midgaad between incredible forces of good and evil. There is some intimation of a dar secret in Khuzdul past, so terrible that no Khuzdul will discuss it, but their reaction suggests great shame. The Khuzdul seem to be condemned to wandering and experiencing an undue share of bad luc . On every world where they are found, they are in decline, a race with more past than future. Even events in Harnic history (e.g. the Carnage of Kiraz) seem to support the existence of some ancient and terrible curse. This supplement only shows the modifications made to the game mechanics of Middle-Earth Role Playing (MERP), to ma e it compatible with the HarnMaster game system. You still need the original MERP rule boo to understand the game's bac ground. The 'Atlas of Middle-Earth, Revised Edition' (Fonstad, K. W.: 1991) is a good boo to refer to as well. It goes without saying that Tol ien's 'The Lord of the Rings' (4th edition: 1981) should also be read! 1. MIDGAAD RACES/CULTURES Several exotic races/cultures are available for play as PCs in Midgaad. If the player wishes to role-play a human character, roll 1d100 on Table 2 (Culture). If he/she wishes to try another race, roll 1d100 on Table 1, rolling again on Table 2 if 13-77 is rolled. If the GM does not wish to allow PC Orcs, Uru -hai, Half-orcs, Halftrolls, Trolls or Olog-hai, then any roll of 88+ should be re-rolled. ___________________________________ ______________________________ | TABLE 1 | | TABLE 2 | |-------+-------------------------| |-------+--------------------| | 1d100 | RACE | | 1d100 | CULTURE | | 01-02 | Hobbit | | 01-05 | Dunadan | | 03-05 | Umli | | 06-10 | Rohir | | 06-10 | Dwarf | | 11-15 | Beorning |

2. SUNSIGN BONUSES Sunsign bonuses on Midgaad are the same as for Kethira, except that they have different names. In addition, each sunsign falls neatly in each month, so cusps are on the first two and last two days of each month. The number of days in a year is the same as for Terra, 365 days, or 366 days every fourth year (the extra day being the 31st of Gwirith). Roll 1d12 for the month in which a PC was born, then roll either 1d30 or (1d30+1d2-1) for the day: ___________________________________________________________ | MONTH | NAME | EQUIVALENT SUNSIGN | DAY BORN | |-------+-----------+--------------------+----------------| | 1 | Narwain | S orus | 1d30+1d2-1 | | 2 | Ninui | Masara | 1d30 | | 3 | Gwaeron | Lado | 1d30+1d2-1 | | 4 | Gwirith | Ulandus | 1d30+1d2-1 (*) | | 5 | Lothron | Aralius | 1d30 | | 6 | Norui | Feniri | 1d30+1d2-1 | | 7 | Cerveth | Ahnu | 1d30+1d2-1 | | 8 | Urui | Angberelius | 1d30+1d2-1 | | 9 | Ivanneth | Nadai | 1d30 | | 10 | Narbeleth | Hirin | 1d30 | | 11 | Hithui | Tarael | 1d30 | | 12 | Birithron | Tai | 1d30 | |_______|___________|____________________|________________| (*) indicates that every 4th year is a leap year; Gwirith then has 31 days instead of 30. 3.

MAGIC Rather than convert Rolemaster's magic system, the HarnMaster She -Pvar system is adopted. Although magic can be very powerful in Midgaad, it is largely inaccessible to mortals; therefore, as far as PCs are concerned, Midgaad has around the same magic strength (wea ness?) as Kethira. In Midgaad, sorcery is referred to as "Essence spells". Elves tend to favour the Fyvrian convocation, and Dwarves favour the Jmorvi convocation. These are not limitations; they are merely preferences. 6. RELIGION Priests in Midgaad are called animists, and the invocations which they call upon from time to time are called "Channeling spells". Rather than convert the Rolemaster game mechanics, these are replaced with HarnMaster's own rules. According to mythology, Siem came from Midgaad. If so, then Siem is probably the Valar Irmo, the Dream Master, Lord of Vision.
