Using the Lord Of The Rings movie license, The Battle for Middle-earth is a Real-Time Strategy game based upon both the renown literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien, and the film trilogy directed by Peter Jackson. Players are given control of enormous armies in the many of the epic battles depicted in the film. From waging all-out combat among the vast forces of good and evil to controlling your favorite heroes and characters to managing the troops.

Hi. I'm looking for someone who went to Eastern University in 2005. You sat on your laptop around lunchtime (could have been dinner-time) near the dining hall. We used to talk. I think you created mods or custom maps for Battle for Middle Earth, and I think you worked at McDonalds. If you get this message please reach out to me. My name is Eric Martin. I want to catch back up with you and have forgotten your name to look you up. Thanks.
