Hmmm... I'm a LOTR junkie (as a matter of fact I'm watching Fellowship of the Ring as I type this) and this could be worth a look-see.
Do they include some of the ancient history of Middle Earth in the story line? (I'm talking about Silmarillion)
I played LotRO steady for about 2 years. It is much better than WoW, imo, which I subscribed to for a about 4 years. LotRO has an engaging story, non-hostile (i.e. no jerks) community, terrific graphics, great game content, and no lame motorcycle mounts. I stopped however due to lack of time to play. Since it's now free I recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried it before.
Arrrrg... guess I'll have to download it and give it a try = I can already feel my life spiral into a bottomless time-eating chasm of LOTR goodness.
I read LOTR books before the movies were made and I love them so if the game offers a decent RPG experience of that world I'm done for.
I'll probably wind up learning how to read/speak elvish or sumthin'... :haha:
I downloaded it last night (warning = it's 10 gig so it takes some time) but I can't seem to "create an account" without a purchased passkey.
I glanced at the forums and near as I can tell the "free to play" doesn't start until Sept. 8th. I'll try again after the 8th and see how it goes.
