Ok first off Michael gave me permission to make this topic.Ok,so for this Topic we can compare what was not in the movies or was not in the books,or what was in them. This will also help people who haven't read the books(you should,they are really good!) and they can understand. Ok lets start it off: Questions on the books,Questions on the movies,"Why did they put that in there?", "Who is this guy?", and lots of other questions! Enjoy!

The Old Forest and the Barrow Downs were left out of the film which really bummed me out. And the Hobbit's flight from the Nazgul was WAY shorter in the film.

Lobilia sackville bagins, bill ferny, and bill the pony.

Does anyone else think they should have added the healing house in ROTK? its a nice ending for both Farimir and Eyowyn who both are left in states of depression when we last see them in the movies.

I, too, disliked the exclusion of the Healing house.

The Sackville-Bagginses are in the extended edition of the FotR.

I don't think that was Amon Sul as it was wooded though it may have been a nameless Elvish outpost as there were many throughout Beleriand and Middle-Earth long ago.

yes. As far as I know they had many outposts in the west of Middle Earth (Evendim etc) in the second age who were then left and became ruins.

Oh, yes. That's a shame they missed Bilbo's poem about Earendil, it is great... And Aragorn's song about Beren and Luthien, Sam's song in Orc Tower... and so on. They left so much from the 6th book also when it's so great!

The Scouring of the Shire was one of my favourite parts in the whole book, I mean, what's cooler than an army of tiny Hobbits massacring a bunch of invading "Big-Folk"?! Not to mention Grima killing Saruman! What REALLY stinks, is that Grima killed Saruman after the defeat of Isengard.

Actually to the comments above, they DID include The House of Healing scene, where Eomer and Merry are watching over Eowyn as she's recovering, and Pippin too, although that scene was quite brief.

I have not played league of legends, but there is a lot of fighting in the game. But then that is only if you are playing to level up, there are a lot of people who do not go fighting or questing, but role-play instead, and spend most of their time doing it. It just depends on what you want to do, if you do get an account, put your character on the world: Landroval that is the one I use as well as Aidan, then I could play with you, guide you, and help you when you need it.

Like Mark said, if you choose the right server, there is a lot of Roleplaying. And even questing isn't just fighting. So I would say no, it's not just fighting. And it's free. :) So choose Landroval, and add Kaitness, Johne, or Folir to your friends list!

Roleplaying sounds good! I'll definitely add you guys!!!

You can be an elf, dwarf, man, or hobbit, and you can also be an orc for free once you get to level 10. (This feature is rather new)

You cannot to my knowledge, be a nazgul, but you do see them rather often in the story, as David said, the story is different for every race except he forgot to mention that is only true at the beginning of the game. Once you pass level 6, or what is called the "Intro quest" then your story is connected to everyone else's.

LOTRO is excellent! I play it for a few years now and it's an excellent game for beginners who have never played online games before. The people there are very mature and very kind and helpful all the time, so don't worry, if you don't understand things at first. You can visit every region in Eriador and half of the regions in Rhovanion. They still need to create half of Rohan, Thranduil's halls, Wilderland, Erebor, Mordor, Gondor, Rhun, Harad and the Iron Hills, but other than that you can travel around in the biggest, most realistic and probably best adaption of Middle-Earth. And the best is that the game is for free until you reach level 50. And it's not only fighting. You get many quests where you have to collect things, rescue people, explore things, etc. You can also learn an instrument, get a job and hobbies and do a lot of role-playing.

That sounds awesome!! I'll definitely be getting it!!! Although I am not entirely new to RPGs, (Role-Playing-Games) as I am a fan of the medieval/fantasy era MMORPG called "Runescape", although I don't play it much anymore. I would like to get another MMORPG called "Guildwars 2", which is a really cool game, although I've only played it at my friends house a few times.

You can switch servers, I was on the Nimrodel server and then transferred my elf Suithon to Landroval, but it is a long, grueling, complicated process, and costs $25. It is far easier just to make a new character on the server you want to be on. (You can often even make the new character have the same name as your other one, as long as someone else did not take it on that server.)

You can switch servers, I was on the Nimrodel server and then transferred my elf Suithon to Landroval, but it is a long, grueling, complicated process, and costs $25. It is far easier just to make a new character on the server you want to be on. (You can often even make the new character have the same name as your other one, as long as someone else did not take it on that server.)
So I am able to have 2 servers at once? Cool! I will ask the leader of my kinship for more information, and then I will visit you if I can.

Actually, it is free up to level 65 as far as I know.

I had to pay for Moria which is for level 50+. My main character is now level 48.

Hmmm sounds cool. I just downloaded Final Fantasy IX on PS3 and that's the only game I've been playing lately aside from fishing in Zelda:Twilight Princess and Reel Fishing (spring needs to get here! I want bass!)

Hahah! That was a fun game because you could get different fish in each river,but i hated the tears of light..so boring XD

I don't think it costs money to switch servers in runescape though. :P Unless you're not a member and you go on a member server, of course. (What's your name on Runescape?)

It only costs money to pay for a monthly membership, which is $8 a month, and you can buy special in-game items for real money as well. You play RS to? My name is: Dukeofgond1

As a matter of fact, it was short for "Duke of Gondor", except that name was too long, and the "1" is because my first account had the same name, although without the "1".

We should meet on there sometime!

It's a fun online fantasy MMORPG (Massivley Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). where you create a character, and can travel around a vast land, doing Quests, raising skill levels, and fighting monsters. You can also barter and interact with other players, with options such as "trading". You can also train non-combat skills too, such as cooking, herblore, fishing, farming, mining, smithing, as well as other skills) Some skills and places are only available to Members only, which requires a monthly fee of $8 a month. It's quite a fun game, however I soon will be switching over to Guildwars 2, which is quite like Runescape.

Hope that helps!

Yes, you can have many characters on many servers, so you can make a new one on Landroval if you want to.

You can always level up your character through other means, and you can still go to moria, even if you do not buy it, but you cannot do any quests in those places unless you buy it, so you can go to Isengard, even if you do not buy it, but you cannot do the quests there.

Yes, tis quite fun! You should try it. :) It does lag depending on your computer, it used to runn fine on this one but it seems age has caught up with it. :1 You have a bunch of different skills, like fishing, health, ( or hitpoints, or HP) Uh, smithing, magic, prayer, dungeoneering, (if you buy membership there's a ton more, but I don't have itas I don't play it much) You can also go on quests, and there are holiday events, (Where you do a quest for a guy and he'll give you cool stuff such as costumes and experience in different skills) and you can also go on a world where you can fight every one, there is the grand exchange, where you can sell things, and put things on the market to buy, (Like put how much you're willing to pay and when someone decides to sell it you just bought it and now you can go and get it) You can defeat a dragon in a certain quest, (My favorite, though I forgot it's name) and you can find hidden things and such, and you have a bank, where you keep all your money and excess items you don't want to keep on hand. You can also make a fire from your tinderbox and wood, and cook fish, and sell fish, or just eat it, and you can attack Goblins ar giant rats or scorpions, a good level builder, if you're looking to level up a ton, (wait till you are in a high level to do this, around 20 or 30) Is defeat giants, or demons, (You can find those in a volcano) and a lot of other things. You can also trade with people, where they gave you something, and you give them something, and once you've both agreed you now have what they traded you for your stuff. :) We had a foreign exchange student from Uzbekistan stay with us once, and couple years ago my mom found him on there :D It's a really fun game! (There's a ton more stuff than what I said, it's pretty much endless to what you can do aside from members only realms)

I'm back! Sadly I can't play right now either, as I'm going to my adopted grandparents house for dinner. : But maybe you can help me while I'm gone: I tried to play it today and it sent me he message: You need to 'update java'. So I do so, and do everything it said I needed to, and it gives me the same message. : Any suggestions? You should tell me in the video games thread so as we don't get off-topic. :) (Just reply to a comment of mine so I don't miss it :D )

I know, but (for me) it's almost impossible to level up your character without the extensions or any other questpacks, because even the instances cost money or only make sense with a large group of people (which I very often just don't find, because nobody is interested). I only have a few like Gondamon, the Barrows, Fornost, etc. So Rhovanion doesn't make sense without the extensions...
