    As far as I am aware - though this requires knowledge of posthumously published, and therefore probably not canon information - as soon as Gandalf saw the Ring, he knew (from its effects) that is was...

    I'd expect that a lot of the iron-based names would be already taken. Also, a lot would depend on the history of the name, not just the words. But also a bit on the specific words. Personally, I...

    I played that a bit after the launch of Rohan and before it was disabled. The Drake in the end did some pretty wacky inside the matrix moves (the flying portion of the scripted path broken) and then...

    This topic is very squicky, but if you assume that Orcs mature faster, you can fit more generations into the time frame of Saruman breeding his army. Depending on the rate of growth, you'll quickly...

    Re: Is PvMP roleplay on this server?

    Using old MUD terms, it's pretty much impossible to make a "roleplay enforced" server in modern MMOs. The "RP" tag on Laurelin is more like "roleplay encouraged" with a limited set of rules (such as...

    Re: Questions Over Lore

    Oh my, we might fill a few pages about discussing Inglor and the House of Finrod. When the LotR was written, Inglor was the same Elf as Felagund, and Finrod was Finarfin - when LotR was revised, most...

    #3 isn't entirely correct, though: Elrond's host escorted most of the survivors of Eregion into Rivendell, where they were besieged by a part of forces loyal to Sauron until Númenor took part in the...

    Re: Questions Over Lore

    I cannot really remember much LotRO-style 'magic' foretellings from Elrond from the books, where he is simply an over 6,000-year-old descendant of the High Elves. His father is essentially a god....

    Re: dark elves

    Yes, "High Elves" are usually considered to be synonymous of Calaquendi. There really is no term in Sindarin to describe them, unless Golodhrim (Noldor) is used. Dúnedhil is a much less used word for...

    The Great Sea is the divider for Light and Dark Elves. Naturally, the division doesn't quite exist in Sindarin, and as such Calaquendi and Moriquendi are Quenya words. As virtually everyone is a...

    Re: dark elves

    As per the game mechanics, every single Elven player character is a "Dark Elf" (as in, not a High/Light/Deep Elf). This doesn't, of course, stop people RPing as High Elves the more than some RP their...

    Re: RPing an adventurin' Hobbit

    Re: What happened to the Noldor?

    Noldor were few to begin with after the War of Wrath. We are relatively safe to say that the amount of what people think when they say Noldor - the old ones who had been in the West - are even fewer...

  20. Re: Doors of Durin: How did the Iron Garisson open them?

    Good catch on the book in the Chamber of Mazarbul. I didn't exactly think about the game (I haven't really been to Lórien much, as I do not play much and level even slower), but rather on the maps I...

    I cannot remember if the storyline mentioned anything how the Iron Garrison entered. Balin's entrance is not known either, but it might have been on the Lothlórien side - with one significant problem...

    Re: Questions Over Lore

    The Uttermost West (Aman) is not an abstract concept in-universe, as it's there (though only Elves can get there, with a few exceptions). However, etymologically (in-universe) it just seems to be a...

    Re: Questions Over Lore

    Guesswork on Udûn: the ^ has the same meaning as ´ when translitterating Elvish - that is, a long vowel. U- is negation. Therefore, as dún- is west, Udûn has a possible translation of "un-west" - the...
