I have a feeling the scholar class is the magic user.
i agree, but not a caster like we expect one to be in D&D
Also aren't you on a 5E podcast? Or did that die off?
I dropped. Couldn't get my heart into it. As far as I know it's on hiatus now.

Where? There are no hyperlinks.
Leader is a strange class for an RPG.
Just as long as we get incredible mounds of hit points, healing magic, and resurrections to give it the true Tolkien feel.

The only thing that interests me is the Virtues. I'm hoping they're not just Alignments by another name.
This looks like an almost direct port of The One Ring to 5E. If you are curious about the classes, virtues, etc. I think if you cross-reference the TOR materials, you'll see those indicators. The biggest difficulty I saw with TOR is people rejecting the Tolkien mores: The Valar = Good, Melkor/Sauron = Evil. All the cultural stuff in one way or another descends from that schema. If you just abandon that, the game really is simply D&D with a cosmetic LotR shell.
I will pick up the PDF and see if it grabs me. 5e has TOO much magic baked into its' bones for my tastes, this might calm that down some. I hope.
