    If you could place a house on the landscape where would you place it?

    I was curious where your favorite spots were. That if you were allowed to place a house where would you pick? I think mine would be between Stock and Budgeford overlooking the river.

    I think a cool spot would be over in the East Wall down by the lake where Frodo leaves the group.

    I like my houses where they are :P. No, I would not like to see player houses just anywhere in the open world (not only would this add to load lag, it is just wrong from the lore aspect). Most of Middle-Earth was uninhabited by the Free-Peoples. I could put up with it more in/around Bree; for Hobbits, anywhere near the major settlements of the Shire & possibly along the Anduin near the Gladden Fields or Dunland where Hobbits were known to have lived. For Dwarves, that would work in parts of Ered Luin and the Iron Hills. For Elves, you'd have the Grey Havens/Lindon, Imladris, Thranduil's kingdom in Mirkwood, and Lorien. I could put up with it in Rohan and really could put up with it in Gondor; where significant populations would fit.

    On top of whoever it was on rp server who kept hitting on my craft alt - and then I'd nick her boots (yes, they were red).

    I think I would rent the basement of the Michel Delving inn, alternatively one of the Celondim empty buildings - some water is nice to see.

    Its you!, long time no see)


    For me, always fan of cabin in woods, or small house....
    I'd love to say Old Forest... I think Cabin, small farm out in Forochel or Misty Mountains is where i'd place my house.

    If I was confided to my housing area... I live in Bree Housing. Very 1st large house on right. I would actually have back of my house towards road. (towards middle)

    So when you enter housing, You would see front and side of my house. That way when I left front door, it would be lawn, mountains and to side my well which is in corner near my friends house.

    Love this idea

    I enjoyed finding places for my houses in SWG. Personally I'd like a place in the great smials, a hut hidden in the Weather Hills, and maybe another near Evendim. So many places with great scenery, really hard to choose.

    Just a hypothetical question nothing to get excited about. I wasn't asking to actually place houses on the landscape. Just if you could where would you like to live?

    Thank you for saying what I was going to say before I said it.

    I could put up with it more in/around Bree; for Hobbits, anywhere near the major settlements of the Shire & possibly along the Anduin near the Gladden Fields or Dunland where Hobbits were known to have lived.

    This would work, if our houses were separate instances, like
    for instance the interior of the Cat Lady's House.

    (Which is where I'd be tempted to live, if I could.)

    But if all our houses were on the Bree landscape, I fear it'd
    cause more lag than we already have in towns.

    AC1 had houses on the landscape, not nearly enough of them
    (mine was in the hills overlooking Sawato). Turbine then
    made apartments that were in instances underground -- there
    was an apartment complex in Cragstone and I forget where else.

    AC2 never had housing, but I knew exactly where I wanted
    mine: overlooking a lagoon in the north of Omishan. /sigh

    Dead center in the Aldburg crafting hall.

    I'm also rather partial to Gapholt as the place in middle earth I'd like to retire to when my questing is done.

    I'll tell you were it WOULDN'T be....FOROCHEL! Those Lossoth can have the place....(Can you tell I just ran through there?)

    Assuming the Eye is defeated and all the baddies are gone? I could go for a house in Rivendel Valley somewhere. I'd keep the Trollshaws' music though.

    There was once a cottage at the spot I would choose, but it has long since crumbled into ruin. Now it is known only as the Crumbled Cellar, but those willing to sift through the debris might learn a surprising thing or two about the person who once lived there, long ago. It isn't as scenic a spot as some, but I wouldn't mind building a new cottage there and keeping a quiet house, musing from time to time on the nature of history and the events that shape us.
