Any news or previews or anything about it on the web yet? All I know is that it comes out in 2003. Just curious yo see how it will be done. An amazing concept that was tried before I think with Sierra's "Middle Earth"

Cant help but wonder if its going to be a lotr adaptation of EverQuest...

Thoughts?

I actually have seen a preview for it as an IGN Insider. It looks very incredible!

Any way you could get us a link to the preview? I wonder if it will revolutionize the MUSH...

I do not think it will replace it by any means. But the concept is just brilliant.

You have to be an insider to be able to watch it, if I gave you the link it would ask you to register and all I think.

If I do find the link though I'll post it and see if it does let you. I'm not sure I still have it though.

Sounds like a dream...??? LOTR ONLINE RPG?????

omg...


What it means is:

You have a world on a huge server. up to about 10.000 players. The designers take the big roles, and everybody does their little part.

It's like a pen&paper role playing game, with 10.000 people at the same time.

I can't imagine a corporate game company getting a mmorpg on LotR up and running stable with all advertised features implemented before 2004. On the other hand, it looks like some folks aren't going to wait that long. Time to mod Neverwinter Nights! Here's the article from Middle Earth Stratics:

"Greetings Pokeroo! May name is Rob aka Duilin Riversong of Ardan Nights, and
I just wanted to drop a line about us, since I figured some MEstratics
viewers/readers may be interested in this. (plus I got a returned mail when
I tried to send this to the regular News mail address) We are a
Middle-earth/J.R.R. Tolkien guild that is dedicated to making a realistic
and livable Middle-earth using Neverwinter Nights (neverwinternights.com,
and/or nwn.stratics.com ). We have been featured at TOR.n
(theonering.net).

Our site is currently under construction but we have an ezboard at http://pub48.ezboard.com/bardanights
and a Yahoo Group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ardan-nights
The ezboard is the main untill our site is up.


Our Description: With the ending of the Middle-earth project by Sierra, many
devoted fans have voiced ideas on creating our own version of Middle-earth;
one that holds as close as possible to the now ended version of ME and JRR
Tolkien's books. One of the responses has been to utilize Neverwinter Nights
to create the game we desire. This "guild" is to further that ambition, and
provide a temporary home for the project until a website can be built that
is devoted to the task.

Special features or attractions of the site: The website will include
forums, databases, chat, polls, a newsletter, multimedia, Middle-earth lore,
and stories sections.

Contact info: I (Duilin Riversong) can be contacted at solo999@hotmail.com

We can also be contacted at our forum and yahoo group sites.

Thank you for your time!

Rob
aka Duilin Riversong
on behalf of Ardan Nights

After being somewhat enthusiastic in the years while the movies were coming out to about 2005,I was always somewhat sceptical of it ever being able to incorporate the feel of Tolkien's Middle Earth. In the end, it did pretty much end up as a Middle Earthy tweaked Everquest/World of Warcraft.
