Having a Balrog in the game would kill the experience. No one can fight or kill a Balrog except for Gandalf according to the LotR lore. With that being said, if a player has the ability to just run into a cave swinging a Uruk Sword and strikes down a Balrog, that'd sort of disappoint me. However, me being the Roleplayer I am, my opinions will probably differ from the others.

On the front page, under 'Creatures', the Balrog is described as one of the creatures in the game. I dunno if one would be able to fight it, though.

Roleplaying is primary for us at MERP. A Balrog does exist in Moria and yes you'd better run! Using a Uruk sword to slay a Balrog is ridiculous and not going to happen, period. :)

I'm shall recruit and lead an army of Uruk-hai to slay the balrog and achieve eternal glory! I have an ancient elven artifact that can subdue it! He cant kill us all!!

*Is never heard from again*

Though seriously, I hope I can recruit some men to go try and die.. would be epic xD

I don't think Middle Earth would be complete without the Balrog, I think if you're going to do it right, it should be like the last scene in oblivion where you are powerless, but at that point that the balrog falls of, you should be allowed to jump after them if you want, as they fall into a lake and run up a load of stairs to the top of a mountain and die and you should be allowed to follow them

Balrogs look terryfying but if you read the Silmarilion they say that the Noldor race of elves had the power of Valinor(tha isle of the gods) in them and could kill the Balrogs by them selves...with sword!
Imagine 1 elf killing 1 Balrog!
If I remember correct the strongest elf Feanor(I think so it's written in english) killed many Balrogs alone but then their master-captain (don't remember his ame) killed him in the flames!

I agree completely, and you're correct about the one-on-one elf/balrog fights, but the power of the elves during the war of the ring was significantly waning at the time, and they were not as strong as they were "back in the day". But, I believe Peter Jackson made his Balrog a little too big. Hell, the thing was 20 feet tall! Some depictions of balrogs in the silmarillion are around 10-12 feet tall, which I think is more realistic. Oh, and the "master-captain" you're referring to is Gothmog, lord of the balrogs.
