What is Lord of the Rings?

Postby DaImp » Tue Mar 17, 2009 6:58 pm

Welcome to the Lord of the Rings chat section. This article will give you a brief overview of LOTR.

The Lord of The Rings is one of the most thrilling stories ever told, a tale of legends and heroes, massive battles and daring adventures where Elves, Dwarves and Men fight in the unceasing struggle against the forces of the Dark Lord Sauron.

From out of the black lands of Mordor, Sauron's influence has grown, his iron rule has gone too long unchallenged and his legions have grown in confidence and power. Unless the forces of Good can rally together and stand against this growing darkness, all of Middle-earth will soon be crushed by a relentless tide of Evil.

This is the setting for The Lord of The Rings Strategy Battle Game, a game that puts you in charge of the army of your choice, be it the noble and brave men of Gondor, stalwart Dwarves, vile and cruel Orcs or the armoured Uruk-hai of Isengard. The monsters and heroes of Middle-earth are yours to command, including the likes of Gandalf the Grey, Aragorn, Saruman and the Witch-king; legendary creatures like the Mûmakil, Ents; and terrifying monsters such as the Balrog or Dragons.

The Lord of The Rings Strategy Battle Game is for anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to control the fabled Fellowship of The Ring as they battled their way through Khazad-dûm, who has wondered whether they could have thwarted the defenders of Helm's Deep or wanted to take part in the glorious Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

The Lord of The Rings Strategy Battle Game
The Lord of The Rings Strategy Battle Game allows you to recreate some of the best-known events from the book and films. This system is suited to small skirmishes fought between bands of heroes, such as the battle in Balin's Tomb, the fateful ambush at Amon Hen and many of the other scenes depicted in the books and films. If you've ever wanted to control the fabled Fellowship of The Ring or unleash the Black Riders, this could be the game for you.

The War of The Ring
War of The Ring allows you recreate mass battles in Middle-earth. In this game, mighty armies smash against one another and players can field forces boasting hundreds of models in fast, furious encounters. War of The Ring enables you to replay monumental battles such as the defence of Osgiliath, the Battle of the Pelennor Fields and the final stand before the Black Gate of Mordor. If you're inspired by the great battles in The Lord of The Rings, and want to lead mighty armies of your own, this game is probably just what you're looking for.
