Default LOTR update

Just wanted to let those who are interested know that I'm making progress on the mod but it is much slower than first anticipated.

Currently, I'm still developing maps. Each character has a different starting location so I am developing the map connections to ensure a smooth transision depending on which character is played. Slow going. All of the hobbit starting areas up to Bree are complete and I'm now working on the other characters.

I'm hoping to have a demo that will allow you to play the game up to Rivendell by the end of next week. Possibly the following week.

Here's hoping.

Good News!!

I've got a working demo for LOTR! There are still some minor tweaks to take care of and events/quests to add, but it currently is playable and seems to be working fine.

I expect to release the demo middle of next week (around Sept 15-16)

The Demo has 2 characters you can play; Frodo and Samwise. And will take you from Hobbiton to Rivendell. My intention is to get feedback from you guys before finishing the full Version of a Fellowship of the Ring Module.

This module will be closer to the books than the movies, but because of the game mechanics, some aspects will be one or the other and some will be neither.

Stay tuned. It's coming.

oh, and if anyone has pics, sounds or music that I can incorperate, please PM me. ty.

Closer to the book than the movies.. that must have been a lot of work.

Good news indeed .

You can say that again. It's amazing how much of what you remember from a book can be 'overwritten' by what you saw in a movie...

A big round of apologies to everyone waiting for this mod.

I spent the Last week in a hotel that was having a serious issue with it's ISP service. A whole week with no internet!!! not sure how I survived....

So the release has been delayed. Expect early next week instead

It's cool. I'm sure it will be worth the wait. I'm just glad that 'someone' is still interested in the game and making new modules.

I thought about trying my hand at one myself but wouldn't know where to start
