    That's always been a red herring. 'Lore' doesn't say that as such, it's simply Gandalf's opinion. A mine is indeed no place for a pony as a rule but hey, guess what, people have trained ponies and...

    Disliking junk fantasy *that isn't in the game* doesn't make anyone a purist, just someone who doesn't want more junk in the game.


    So Warhammer the *game* doesn't have them and you don't care...

    That's not a reindeer, it looks like the visual effects guys got the idea from the Irish Elk. Bit of a difference.

    Of course it's a game but it *has* been adapted to fit, otherwise Dwarves wouldn't be engaging in mounted combat at all. So no, you don't get it. It's a compromise, which is what the devs tend to go...

    Well, the game's not based on the movies and I wasn't talking about the LOTR movies in any case, just those Hobbit movies which were really pretty bad. It's those you're wanting to rip stuff off from...

    We already understand, you have questionable taste in movies and prefer generic fantasy to the real deal :p


    It'd be a different *model*, not just a skin. And no, you can't sensibly explain how...

    So it's not looking real good for your red-nosed cartoon reindeer with a saddle made of holly, then...you must've been hitting the eggnog real hard when you came up with that :p

    That's not an idea so much as regurgitated pop-culture memes. The red nose thing started off in a colouring book for kids from the late Thirties... kind of appropriate really, as crayons are probably...

    People in Lapland and Siberia traditionally used reindeer as beasts of burden because that was all they'd got. If they'd lived further south they'd have had horses, like all those people in Siberia...

    Err... no, Milli, I don't need you to tell me about taiga - what I was getting at is that's not at all the sort of forest that Tolkien's Silvan Elves lived in. Bringing Elves into it was completely...

    Err... reindeer don't live in deep forest so I don't see what that's got to do with it. Plus I wouldn't say "lore" here so much as "this ain't WoW" (which needless to say has reindeer mounts at...

    It has Yule, which is near enough the same thing. But the reindeer thing really doesn't make any sense here. (Nothing good ever came out of the frozen North of Middle-earth, as that was where...

    Now that's all very well but we're not talking about landed gentry holding fiefs. We're talking about military service *in time of war*, like when Pippin swears to serve Gondor as a common soldier....

    It's from a much older word than that and originally directly referred to the loyalty someone showed to his liege lord and didn't have the casual figurative sense you and the devs are using, which is...

    The two go together, you swear fealty and then pay homage. It really is meant to be an exclusive deal - if you're swearing to serve someone you can't tack on "except when I'm serving one of the other...

    Not in the true meaning of the word. Pledging allegiance is like when Pippin swears fealty and service to Gondor and accepts Denethor as his liege-lord. By rights it should be a "pick one" kind of...

    The whole Ring thing is *over*, man, I can't see what crawling off to the Emyn Muil to peer at rocks would have to do with anything that's now happening in the game's story.

    Character classes with flashy abilities and gear are needed gameplay (at least to keep the masses happy), whereas shamelessly ripping off stuff from those awful Hobbit movies is not. So unless your...

    I get nothing but grief whenever I say things like that. Plus if that's their idea for teasing their version of the Scouring then it sounds like it's going to be just awful.
