    I feel your pain. I've had the same thing happen to me in many instances. As someone who has played the game since the first year and has studied statistics, I can tell you with statistical certainty...

    The beginning sequence, with Bilbo telling Frodo about his adventure to the Lonely Mountain, confused me. Apparently, it was supposed to take place just before the events of Lord of the Ring, but Ian...

    Thanks. Yes, the chapter "At the Sign of the Prancing Pony" is what I looked at to begin with. Butterbur mentions his "long shanks" but gives no other physical description. The English text says only...

    The fundamental premise of the game is that you (or you and a small number of friends with whom you are in a fellowship) are going around doing all these other things. Presumably, you're supposed to...

    Physical description of Aragorn

    In The Lord of the Rings, a description of Aragorn's hair and eyes is given on page 156 or so, when Frodo meets Strider in the Prancing Pony, and I seem to recall its mentioning he had long legs. But...

    You guys are getting all hung up on the words themselves. All the classes were (according to Turbine) patterned after (or rather, inspired by) specific characters in Lord of the Rings, but they...

    Galtrev and Dunlendings - Re: Lore contradictions

    In The Lord of the Rings, Dunlendings are depicted as wild and uncivilized. Yet in the game LotRO, the city of Galtrev has the most sophisticated facilities of any place in all of Middle Earth,...

    Re: Most Faithful Interpretation

    I'm fairly knowledgeable about the books, and I'm very happy with the Peter Jackson trilogy. It kept (almost) as close to the story and (more importantly) the spirit of the story as I could expect...

    Gandalf and the Balrog of Moria were both Maia and were of comparable strength. Gandalf did win, most definitely, but he was almost totally spent and lay near death for a while (and apparently had a...

    Re: Turin

    Turin seems to have its root in the word for "master" in one of the Elvish languages.

  22. Re: OK..What is going on with ROI and Legendaries?

    What does that mean? If you use store scrolls to remove your relics, will the "new relics" drop just the same when you decon the LI's whether or not you remove the old relics first?
  23. Will ROI reverse the extortion for unlocking Legendary relics?

    Locking the relics is the worst thing Turbine has ever done. They promised the Turbine store would never be necessary for getting something the VIPs already had, but the ability to get relics back...
