First time playing Fellowship? Follow these steps:
- Pick Your Playbook - You can’t pick a playbook someone else has (and one player must be the Overlord)
- Choose your Name, Look, and Agenda
- Assign your Stats
- Choose your Moves
- Choose your Gear
These steps are all on your playbook. Look it over and choose from the options your playbook gives you.
- Introduce your Hero - Tell us about your hero, tell us why you are your people’s champion, and then tell us three facts about your people. Each player must do this.
- Group questions - Everyone answers these together:
- Whose people did the Overlord hit first and hardest?
- Whose people has the Overlord mostly ignored?
- What impossible thing has the Overlord already done?
- Bonds - Each player writes their name in one of the Overlord’s Bonds, then each player fills in however many Bonds their playbook says they start with with the names of anyone they know - each other, Companions, even the Overlord.
- Rumors - each player answers this prompt individually: “Choose another player, and tell us a rumor or superstition your people hold about their people. They cannot tell you whether or not it is true.”
- Start playing!
