All out of spoons
Westron and Adûnaic are the same language in the sense that Ladino and Latin are the same language. Westron is the "modern" form of Adûnaic, but even in Tolkien three thousand years are enough to change a language to the point that Boromir and Ar-Pharazôn wouldn't be able to hold a conversation. Sindarin changes much more slowly, but it is subject to the embalming influences of being a classical language for most speakers and its native speakers being immortal. Boromir and Elros couldn't have held a conversation in Adûnaic/Westron, and might have taken a bit to understand each other's Sindarin.This is mildly amusing in retrospect because it becomes clear from subsequently published material that Westron and Adûnaic are actually the same language. In fact the "Adûn" element should have made that clear to us, because "Adûn" is, of course, Adûnaic for "west".
True. Significant differences can be seen in the Etymologies between First Age and LOTR style Sindarin. Perhaps akin to the differences between Homer's Greek and New Testament Greek. They're still recognizable, but Boromir and Elros would sound quasi-barbarous to each other.Boromir and Elros couldn't have held a conversation in Adûnaic/Westron, and might have taken a bit to understand each other's Sindarin.
Well I know MERP had a supplement detailing the great powers, with stat blocks for the Valar and some Maiar, and maybe some FA elf lords (I can't remember). So there was at least some support for a FA campaign if not adventure modules.As far as I know, MERP has no adventures set before Second Age 1350 ("Intrigue Among the Merdain" in Lorien), and only Lorien and Gorgoroth have adventures set before the Third Age. Lorien has a handful of paragraphs on the Vanyar, which basically amounts to them being tall, blonde, and with blue or violet eyes, and there's no record of any leaving Aman after the battle against Morgoth. I'm not aware of any other mentions except in passing.
