One of the Halls in Moria. Moria means "Black Chasm" in Sindarin.

It's meant to be a joke. Apparently, either my sense of humour is in a terrible shape, or most of you can only be dead-serious when it comes to MERP. Or both. :)

Or maybe people are really anticipating this mod, and have trouble taking a joke when they notice an update and then get disappointed. ;) Remember, you're one of the top mods of the community at the moment.

If people are anticipating it that heavily, they are bound to be disappointed... This is still only a 0.2.6 release. Not everything is top quality. The regions are quite beautiful, but the few quests we have and NPC's were done pretty quickly. We need to wrap up in a short amount of time, before the Creation Kit is released.

You can have a great time exploring and enjoying the views, but don't expect anything major in gameplay.

*Facepalm* xD It's funny, once you realize what it's actually supposed to be. Honestly, I saw the picture and read the description and thought, "CRAP! The screenshot isn't loading!" :P So maybe put it in the description that this is an in-game shot of Moria, and it's supposed to be this dark.

(Pushes up glasses) No SIR! Moria means Black "Pit" in Sindarin!

We are both correct, Tolkien himself wrote "Black Chasm" once, and the translation of iâ in Sindarin dictionaries is void, abyss or pit.
