Well, we "self appointed defenders of the lore" do so because we love Tolkien's works and we are because we love Middle Earth. Of course anything that appears in The Hobbit or LOTR can't be argued with. Do the devs need to tweak the books to make it work with gameplay? Of course. But there is a really fine line.

Hogwarts or whatever? If you're going to post here in the Tolkien subsection please try not to thumb your nose at his works. Do it in the General Forums section but not here.
Do I like Rune Keeper? I hate it. I'm a traditionalist. I feel this goes against his works. But I can understand why Turbine brought the class in, and like I said on page one, I think Turbine did a pretty good job at finding a compromise to make it work.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW, what a ride!"
