    Quest that take place in the past

    Being able to do quest that take place in the past. Quest where you play your character's past before the events in the starting instance.

    For your character's unique personal past? Impossible.
    Unless they were all generic. ie, -ALL- characters came from an un-named village from an un-named region of middle-earth.
    If you want a more unique background, write one on the Biography. The button is at the bottum of your character screen (default button is C ).

    The Epic line for the long lived races (Dwarves and Elves) start well in the past long before the events of the Lord of the Rings. It is not possible for the short lived races like Hobbits and Humans.

    Something like Denethor in the past does not make any sense for our character pre war. We would not be in the area. We would not be important enough to interact with Denethor. Turbine would have to use the session play tech where we play an important to Denethor character like Boromir (son of Denethor).

    The other problem is that Turbine only has access to the small piece of Middle Earth lore contained within the Lord of the Rings and the supporting licensed materials. The majority of the lore base is under the control of the Tolkien Estate and unavailable to be used.

    The character past thing could be generic or you there could be session plays where you play your own character.

    Turbine would never implement it as a Festival event. It would be part of the Epic Line maybe 2014 if we get to the capital of Gondor.

    Some issues:

    1) Denethor would not interact with our charactersfor something fun like a Festival activity. He might order a Festival for the folks in Minas Tirith. Put some of several levels down personnel to operate the Festival.

    2) Turbine does not do Festivals in places other than Bree, Breeland, The Shire and Ered Luid. Denethor is not present in these areas.

    3) Festivals are free content for characters of all levels which are held in the lowest level regions that everybody has access to. There is no way to add someone like Celeborn or Denethor to a Festival. It has to be like the Hobbit Prank on Lobelia Sackville_Baggins. Lobelia lives in the Shire.

    There is a load of session plays, mainly during the epic line, which take you back into the past. You will see quite a couple iconic characters during these quests.
