Oh wait, Melkor is Morgoth, isn't he? Hahaha, totally forgot about that. And, having remembered that, I'm familiar with his fight against Fingolfin, although I forgot the name. Ah, the noobishness of me. :P

Well, okay, he didn't say specifically how the witch king would die. I believe he worded it like, "It is not by the hand of man that he shall fall" or something like that. I guess that can be interpreted as "No man can kill him", but I always saw it as, "He will be destroyed, but the one who does it will not be a man." I always figured that since he's so powerful, maybe he had some glimpse into the future or something, but I could be wrong. In any case, I hope we get to hang out with him in MERP! :D
Unfortunately, I have no idea who Melkor and Fingolfin are. Looks like it's time to read up on my Middle Earth lore! lol

Glorfindel's definitely going to be the one to save Frodo, since MERP generally prioritizes lore accuracy over any other versions. I just hope we'll get to interact with him more than that. He's my favorite Middle Earth character, and I think it would be epic to be able to fight alongside him at least once. After all, he single-handedly defeated a Balrog, not to mention that the Nazgul are scared s***less of him, and he predicted how the Nazgul king would die. In my opinion, he's pretty much the biggest bada** in Middle Earth. :)

I doubt it. The world's events will still proceed like normal (as in, the Fellowship will still make their journey, and Frodo will still take the Ring to Mount Doom). I suppose it's possible that you could track Frodo down, kill him, and steal the ring (if that's even going to be an option), but even then, I'm pretty sure all you'll be able to do with it is turn invisible... and of course, you'll have the Nazgul on your tail. :) Oooh, that actually sounds kinda fun! XD

The prophecy said "Not by the hand of man will he fall." So Glorfindel was basically implying that a woman (or a hobbit... or both) would be the ones to kill the Nazgul king, but the prophecy didn't actually say "Only women and hobbits have the ability to kill him". So, as earganon explained, it wasn't because they were a hobbit and a woman, it's just that they happened to have the right tools to defeat him.

(On another note, why does moddb keep switching around the order of the responses!?)

The Nazgul King wasn't killed because Eowyn was a female. From what I've been able to gather, Merry's sword (which he acquired from Aragorn) had some kind of special property that allowed it to destroy the Nazgul's "invincibility" when he attacked it, thus allowing Eowyn to deal the final blow... at least, that's what I've come to understand.

So, theoretically, if you're in free roam, could you just travel with the fellowship through their entire journey, without needing a quest to do so?

That's the way I like it! You pass through Lorien, you'd better be ready to beg for your life! XD

I'm willing to bet that they intend to do such. I just hope the cloaks aren't made of cardboard, like some of the other cape mods I've seen for the elder scrolls games.

Not that I'm in any position to tell you guys how to make this mod (cuz I think you're doing an amazing job so far), but I would absolutely fall 110 % in love with it if the soundtrack had a lot of Celtic-styled music in it. It's one of my most favorite music genres, and would fit so perfectly into the world of Middle Earth. :)

Really reminds me of David Arkenstone. He did some Celtic/Irish music that I really liked, and also made some of the music for World of Warcraft (I think), and is an amazing composer. Well done, Abbottaerospace!

I've personally always preferred mouse and keyboard over console controllers. Not sure why, but I feel a lot more in control with mouse and keyboard. Maybe cuz it's easier to aim? I dunno

Good to know. It always bothered me when people made dwarf mods (or other smaller-race mods) that just looked like scaled down versions of normal races.

Here's a question: For the smaller races (hobbits, dwarves, etc) are their body proportions going to be modified so that they look like actual short people, as opposed to simply scaling down the size of the bigger races? For example, will the dwarves have more squat bodies and normal sized heads, rather than just smaller people with the exact same body proportions as a human or elf?

Hope my question made sense.

A discussion at an Ent Moot consists of:

Day 1- "Good Morning."

Day 2- "First item of business is..."

Day 3- "I'm hungry. Let's take a lunch break."

Day 4- "Alright, down to business."

Day 5- "Uhh... why were we here again?"

Day 6- "Eh, nevermind, I'm going home."

Just wondering, what kind of writing positions do you have for the team? (As in dialogue, books, quest entries, etc.) I'm planning on majoring in English, so I thought this might be a fun thing to do, if you have any jobs in that area. Unfortunately, I'm not a huge LOTR lore expert, but I've studied some lore here and there, and I'm a big fan of the series.
I'm also interested in voice acting, but I'm going to guess that you guys aren't quite that far in development yet. Still, I'd like to get my name in for whenever that starts happening. :)

Rofl, that would be hilarious if you guys added that at some random point in the game as an easter egg/joke.
