So the pokemon thing stayed long enough. I was considering all April, but honestly. Anyhow, the title of this news post is called "Visions" and the reason I call it that is because I know everybody has a vision of Middle-earth, and even more so, the visions of being in Middle-earth and the experiences to be had there.

Everybody has their own and unique idea of what the game should be like as a final product. It is impossible to bring everyone's vision to life, and that is why we strive to bring our vision to life. Some things will be epic and grand, and possibly make this the greatest game every based on Tolkien's works (at least in some people's opinions), but the reality is, we, the team, are just ordinary people with a dream. We dream of building a game worthy of Tolkien's vision. That is our vision. To accomplish this in the scope worthy of that title will take a huge amount of time, dedication, skill, passion, etc... Us ordinary people, we, the team, are not trained game programmers, we're teenagers (for the most part) trying to make something so epic not even EA games was willing to take up the torch. We certainly intend on created content that will blow everyone's minds away and bring great amounts of enjoyment for those whom have the vision of exploring and interacting with Middle-earth, second to best of actually being there. All in all, even though not everybody will be satisfied, and the mod may not live up to the vision many are hoping for, s single, as in ONE vision will be brought to life through our hard labors, and we hope most sincerely that OUR vision will be epic enough to represent the works of J.R.R. Tolkien in it's entirety.
