>Sure is a lot of hot opinions getting thrown around here as facts. Care to explain your viewpoint?
This is empirically proven, though, anon.

Five is optimal because it's enough people to provide big hooks to the overall campaign progression, but few enough people to keep the spotlight hot.

With groups with six or more players you inevitably find yourself failing to get someone in the spotlight during the sessions and that undercuts player interest.

You can play with less than 5 players! This is fine, but it generally means the GM is doing a lot more creatively on the back end rather than just using players' work against them.

It's weird, though. Every GM has to learn this the hard way.

Tolkien despised industrialization as he witnessed first hand what a truly mechanized war can do to Humanity.

Tolkien was a sensitive man. He was a writer and linguist, someone who took great pride in learning the old Anglo-Saxon epics and undoubtedly spent long hours ruminating over the beautiful imagery of green forests and golden pasture, where men wore gleaming armor and songs were played by silver harp to crowds around large fires. That was what Tolkien saw as good, but what did he see in his world? Smoke rising from great brick towers against gray, dreary skies that spat acid rain on fierce, miserable faces that scuttled like rodents to work or beer, where a bit of green was luxury or worse, a thing to be plowed and overturned. Tolkien hated that. Tolkien despised that. He saw the sooty faces of factory workers and saw Orcs. He saw people carving into green hillsides and saw Isengard.

He went to war and saw firsthand how *efficient* the world had become at killing people, and that horrified him. He wanted to dream of a world that was in his stories, where the Brandywine feeds gently into the Shire, which was by all accounts his vision of an idyllic pastoral countryside; the people weren't hippies living in trees, but they certainly weren't Sharky ripping up the ground for smeary stones that belched death into the air.

If you want a vision of Tolkien's mind in the book, take a look at Faramir, who was effectively Tolkien's self-insert besides Beren. He was a sensitive man forced into war and discovered he hated the taste. He was like Eowyn in that, and when the pair met in the House of Healing they found themselves in love... And what did Faramir, and Eowyn wish to do? Become healers, to give up the sword and live in nature.

Tolkien couldn't ask for anything more.

>Reminder that orcs as envisioned by Tolkien are the force of technological process and industrialization

Friendly reminder that Tolkien despised industrialization as he witnessed first hand what a truly mechanized war can do to Humanity.

Everyone here must realize that Tolkien was a sensitive man. He was a writer and linguist, someone who took great pride in learning the old Anglo-Saxon epics and undoubtedly spent long hours ruminating over the beautiful imagery of green forests and greener fields, where men wore gleaming armor and songs were played by harp to crowds around large fires. That was what Tolkien saw as paradise, but what did he see in his world? Smoke rising from great brick towers against gray, dreary skies that spat acid rain on fierce, miserable faces that scuttled like rodents to work or beer, where a bit of green was luxury or worse, a thing to be conquered. Tolkien hated that. Tolkien despised that. He saw the sooty-faces of factory workers and he saw Orcs. He saw people carving into green hillsides and he saw Isengard.

He went to war and saw firsthand how *efficient* the world had become at killing people, and that horrified him. He wanted to dream of a world that was in his stories, where the Brandywine feeds gently into the Shire, which was by all accounts his vision of an idyllic pastoral countryside; the people weren't hippies living in trees, but they certainly weren't Sharky ripping up the ground for smarmy stones that belched death into the air.

Tolkien couldn't wish for anything more.

Nope, it was a game that lasted for a year-and-a-half, it was my first foray into voiced campaigns, first game in Roll20, even my first game where I gave a damn about the other players.

All those casual Friday nights we spent playing CAH when we didn't have a session... All those moments, lost in time, like tears in the rain.

>If you find a niche you only occupy

I'm going to give you a precious niche that has been untouched so far, in either thread or application.

This is my most precious treasure, one that I was going to exploit myself. I hope someone finds happiness with it.

Kingmaker is a game centered around wilderness survival and exploration. Nobody has made a survivalist, woodsman, pioneer or any other way to describe someone that will keep the party alive in a forest.
