Taking a little break from Felagund to confirm to myself my claim that I can get through the early game reliably with Noldor (and not crazy character builds). I just fell through a trapdoor to 550ft. I play reasonably quickly in the early game -- it probably took me between half an hour and an hour to get to this stage. Some run-ins with uniques where I've had to run a little, but no major scares. I did let my health slip down to single digits after poisoning from a Distended Spider, but that was after I'd retreated; I had potions to help, but didn't think I needed them.

Ah, a polearm weaponsmith. I've been there before, though I tried heavy polearms to get the great synergy between Polearm Mastery and Knockback. You might be interested in Rapid Attack with that Halberd: (+14, 2d12) vs (+11, 2d9)x2. Sounds good to me, albeit not brilliant. If your strength increases this will become a better option.

I found a very fitting artefact ... now to decide whether to branch out into archery. I also found another forge and upgraded my 3.8lb halberd to a 3.1lb one.

I agree with Rapid Attack as a maybe for the future -- particularly as I'm thinking about picking up Song of Sharpness.

And so falls Celegorm, son of Feanor.

I almost certainly should have invested in more Will at the end here. I should also have made better use of my potions.

My initial strategy was to step back from Scatha until I had some distance, and then let him come and impale himself. The problem was, of course, his non-physical attacks. Blanking my mind or making me afraid was okay, but being confused or entranced was bad news.

Is the idea behind Scatha and Smaug that they might plausibly have existed in the First Age?

Scatha kills Scatha... amusing ;)

Yes, Scatha, Smaug and Shelob are all in on precisely that basis (well I suppose we're pretty confident that Shelob existed in the First Age). It's a bit more to claim that they were already among the nastiest of their kind, but as there are fewer canonical named foes than we'd like for the game, we're stretching the point slightly. In some other (few) cases we have made up names for uniques. It's not quite clear where the best balance here is, and possibly the likes of Scatha should be a bit rarer.

Yes, they probably should be -- leaving centre stage for those who had their fame in the 1st age.
