View Full Version : Tolkien without Tolkien?

2007-05-14, 03:11 PM

I was wondering if anyone made an attempt at a High Epic Homebrew that was tolkienesque without being tolkien. Love Tolkien dont want to play there but somewhere simular with big high epic feel ( Wizards being angelic emissaries, The High and Nobel Breed of Men, etc) while having more DnD Staples ( Arcane and Divine Magic perhaps even psionics, etc)

Thanks for your time

Yes. It's called the Forgotten Realms.

My Homebrew is heavly influenced by Tolkien though it's moved away some as I've developed it more. .

If you want something with that feel you actually wind up having to strip out most of the magic.

If you want a copy of my players info doc send me a PM with your e-mail address. The player info doc currently stands at 72 pages (Word doc).

I'd agree that what you descibe does fit the Forgotten Realms :)

Otherwise, as Umarth pointed out, various people have given it their own tries - I'm sure you'll find many suitable things!
