There actually are statues; they aren't in this pic. But yeah, we actually were debating about how to approach Amon Sul. One idea was to simply eliminate the dome arches from the movie version and have only the crumbling wall and pilars with cracks added to the floor or something. This version is what we have for now though, but things could change in the future

While you have a point, keep in mind that Osgiliath wasn't attacked and destroyed, it was simply abandoned. Amon Sul was attacked and destroyed. But still I see your point.

Well, rebuilding Osgiliath is possible, but Moria isn't rebuilt until the centuries after the LOTR by Durin VI.

Anyway, the White Council is a questline where the player aids the remnants of the White Council in defending ME until the ringbearer's quest is fulfilled. The player starts with in a particular place depending on his race and has a starter quest that establishes backstory, sort of like Dragon Age but different. After that, the player can go (you can always decide not to, but that would defeat the purpose of choosing this game mod :P ) to Rivendel and be present at the Council where the Fellowship is formed. Afterwards, the player can swear to aid Elrond (the sort of acting leader since Saruman has betrayed and Gandalf is leaving) in defencing ME. The quests will mainly focus on the player aiding the various forces of the Free Peoples in the major battles like Helms Deep, Fords of Isen, Dale, and Pelenor. That is the basic idea of it all. We will be ellaborating on it more as we go.

I like the movies and all. But we follow the books. Pluss, this is a crumbling tower that has been in ruins since the early third age. Time has worn away all ornamentel features and elegant form. Note how weathered the stone itself looks. The movies looks very "together" for a tower set on top of a hill like that, where it has no real shelter from the wind.

Maybe. But the world doesn't revolve around the player in MERP so some things will just get rebuilt over time whether the player does anything or not.

Sort of. It will be taller. However, it will still have a somewhat elegant form as it is Numenorean (Gondorian/Arnorian) in style.

Mount and Blade is cool, don't get me wrong. But it is too limited for our needs, particularly in the areas of landscape graphics and open world gameplay. All we really like from M&B for MERP is the combat.

Dude...LOTR and ES are as different as apples and Hondas. The fact that you insinuate that we aren't changing much is kind of insulting. And most LOTR games suck, with LOTRO being a possible exception.

They are separate. However, the final won't be like that; way too many polies. Also, this was created to help make the destroyed version. The actual rebuilt version won't be exactly like what you see here.

We will likely go for something both a taller and more tall-looking (not so wide). Anyways, a long ways off ;).

If it doesn't, we all deserve to get slapped. I mean, this is Middle Earth! (but then again, that didn't help EA very much...) Don't get me wrong, Nehrim is very epic. But I for one am confident MERP will top it.

Ps: Before we get complaints about the complete Amon Sul model talkin about how Amon Sul is supposed to be really tall and all that: we know. What you see is a rough model created by Justb to establish the shapes, designs and proportions for the destroyed version. The actual finished version won't be exactly what is depicted here. ;)

We are currently focussing on and only have plans for the current LOTR focused mod. As for addons, we honestly can't say. A Harad and Rhun addon (AFTER 1.0, NOT now) have been talked about, but nothing we can say for certain as that is a long ways off. As for a the Fall of Numenor (the Akalabeth) addon, I don't know if that would work, but that doesn't stop another group from doing it in the future.

Well, in Oblivion it is kinda limited as when you "fly", what is happening is that the creature is essentially lifted via a script on an invisible "plane". That is why the Akatosh flying mount, while a very cool mod, doesn't look really natural in its motion. It is also why the Akatosh mount doesn't fly without the player riding it.

Up to a point yes, but eventually we will release betas less frequently as we near the 1.0 release (the current release isn't such a case, we have simply had internal merger problems)

Yes, it is as it appears. We will have side quests and a large main quest (actually, two: a Ringbearer storyline and a storyline called the White Council storyline; however, the Ringbearer storyline will be larger). As for released dates, it is impossible to know for sure as there are just so many variables. However, you can be certain that it will be years from now.

You don't have to man all seven. If you can man two or three and then execute relatively clean tactical retreats up the levels, you would be able to hold Minas Tirith against a pretty massive force. ;)

I think they will get to the northern ones eventually; however the southern ones are more "center stage" in the LOTR so they naturally take priority

This is the same as in the latest beta release actualy. And movie accuracy isn't the number one focus anyways, but rather book accuracy (which is good as the books are far more epic than the movie :P). Also, Minas Morgul won't be restored to Minas Ithil as that is in direct contradiction to the lore, which states that Minas Morgul and the Morgul Vale are unfit to live in and High King Elesar (Aragorn) has the city razed to the ground and the vale burnt. However, a new city is built at Emyn Arnen and the great cities of Arnor are rebuilt (Fornost, Anuminas, etc) and that will be done in MERP.

I don't think there are any Maiar weapons other than the five staffs of the Istari. If you could find any, first age Noldor (or even Vanyar) would be the strongest armor other than Dwarven Mithril
