View Full Version : Lord of the Rings Online: OotS kinship?

2007-01-19, 11:26 AM
I was thinking of starting an OotS-themed kinship when I get to Bree, (Read: soon) but I'm not sure a) what to call it b) if anyone would want to be in it

If anyone else is in the beta and is interested, Feel free to leave a message me here, or /tell me IG (as either 'Elan' or 'Durkon', I know I'm origional)

Also, some good name suggestions would be awesome

While I'm not in the beta, I would like to just ask some questions about the game.
1. Is it a bit more faithful than the films (ie. The Barrow-Downs)?
2. Is it any good?

I am curious as well. If it's better then D&D Online I am totally in.

It does offer up the entirety of middle earth to explore- Barrow Downs, Shire, Bree, Ered Lun, etc., and it follows the general plot of the books albiet at a distance.
A lot of the non-plot quests for leveling and such can get boring and repetitive- most of them in the shire are delivering pies and mail- but it's still pretty fun.

There're still a bunch of bugs, but by release April/May they should be worked out

Hmmm, sounds like it might fall into the pit of bad MMO's where almost every freaken MMO goes...

Your post seems to have the extra word "almost" in it

I hope they don't mess that game up because it could be a really good game.
*sigh* they probably will though *sigh*

Any news on the proposed system that would allow players to temporarily play as certain monsters?

I want to be an orc dammit :(

Well I signed up for the beta.

I want to try it out, since it mentions Angmar (and BfMD 2 was so kickass!) in the title. What racial options do they have so far? Men, hobbits, elves and dwarves so far?

Watch it, I think it's still under NDA.
