Received TOR Loremaster's Screen and Lake-town Sourcebook in the mail today... Can't Post

I had pre-ordered these some time ago from Amazon.com, but the release date changed to the end of October.

The Lake-town Sourcebook is a 36-page (counting front and back covers), staple-bound book detailing the people and culture of Esgaroth seven years after the demise of Smaug. It includes a map of Lake-town with descriptions of key locations; new monsters for The One Ring rpg, including two goblin-variants and the Marsh-ogre; conversion of treasure points into coinage; and Men of the Lake as a new playable culture along with a sample character (Frida, Daughter of Finnulf).

The Loremaster's Screen consists of four panels of (extremely) heavy cardstock. The outside is a lovely color illustration of Lake-town; inside, nicely organized, are all of the tables that a Loremaster should need to referee a game session. There is even a quote from Thorin Oakenshield: "There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something."

Hopefully, it won't be too long before I can actually try some of this material out on some players.

Let me know how it plays [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd like to get these myself, but I don't have the time to put together good scenarios and actually play them, so the core book is just sitting on a shelf.
