So, I know there's so much LOTR stuff on AoMFiles, but I've been wanting to make a LOTR campaign ever since I heard there was an expansion for AoM. Now that I finally have it, I can start making the campaign! But, as usual, theres a flaw in my abilities: I don't know the Fellowship of the Ring saga that well because I saw the movie and read the book so long ago. What I would like someone to do is post here with this information: -Suggest a good amount of scenarios for the campaign based on the amount of important scenes that were in the LOTR 1 book. -List and describe each scenario enough so that I can make the scn. from your description. -For each scenario, name at least 1 or 2 details that there should be. This can include accurate bits of eye candy, or just certain places that should be where and all that stuff. ==> If anyone can do this for me, I'd really appreciate it! In the final and beta versions of the campaign, you will be given substantial credit:deal: ! Thanks, --CoolSk8r32 :lol::lol::lol:

Ok here it goes.

I think that in the Fellowship of the Ring campaign, there should be 4 scenarios.

-The first one should be about Frodo and his companions leaving the Shire. (they wouldhave to gather enough reasources to build an oxe cart or something to carry reasources (a very simple scenario)). Should have Bag End and shire eyecandy like sheep and goats and stuff like that.

- The second one should be a cinimatic where it tells you about the time between the Hobbit's leaving the shire. This should show them coming into the city of Bree, meeting with elrond in Rivendale, and show bits of the Lothlorien (elf forest) part. sdhould include beautiful views of places shown and dialog at the bottom of the screen.

- The third one should be the battle in Moria. The Fellowship should be in a large locked area with no way to get out. There should always be waves of Orcs coming (or whatever you want to use for orcs). Should include some lava pits and something that can pass for the Tomb of Balin.

-The fourth one should be a scenario that covers the battle of Amon Hem. This should be a large battle in a deep forest near as river. The main characters, in thit case Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli. And i think that there should be some trigger for rescuing Frodo in some way. Should include broken down fences in the forest like in thegame and the movie. Should also include a broad waterfall at the end of the river.

I hope this helps. In all the scenarios there should also be a trigger saying that Frodo must survive.

The balrog is a beast of flame and ash. They meet this nice chap in moria. I beleive there should be more than 4 scenarios for each book. Around 10. I can;t list detail yet, but will try to do so later. -Cinematic: Gandalfs talk with Frodo. Scenario: Doing tasks for Gandalf (expand on the book) -Cinematic: Party and Fireworks. Scenario: Tasks for bilbo and leaving the party. -Cinematic: Gandalfs journey to gondor and his return. Scenario: Travel across feilds with Same and meet Merry and Pippin. -Cinematic: Prancing Pony and meeting Strider. Scenario: Journey with Strider to rivendell. -Cinematic: Council of Elrond Scenario: Setting out on the quest. With fellowship. -Cinematic: Snow all around and voices with tubmling rocks, the Ring Beareres decision. Scenario: Journey to the entrance of Moria. -Cinematic: Gate of Moria and the watcher in the water. Scenario: Travel through Moria and fight. -Cinematic: Fall of Gandalf Scenario: Travel to Loth-Lorien. -Cinematic: Loth-Lorien, Galadriels Mirror and gift giving. Scenario: Down the river to Amon hem. -Cinematic: Boromir tries to take the ring. Scenario: Aragorn, Legolas and gimli make their way through the battle. -Cinematic: Death of Boromir, Frodo and Sam across sailing, and the Three (Ara,Leg and Gim) set of on their journey. -Cinematic: Credits... last part: The Journey Continues: (Whatever date you expect it to) Of course you can have more than 1 cinematic per scenario... but they are the story setting ideas.

heh, I like it I like it! just a little more detail and I will start mapping. @pcgm: The Balrog is a....

beast of flame and ash

... so thats what it is. The final product will have golden wings, flaming arms, a giant axe, and the model (slightly edited) of an atlantean titan, which I think most resembles the Balrog. I'll mod his texture if I can (I don't know if you can ReplaceTexture on Granny Animations!). But already it's pretty cool! heh he duznt evn have his axe yet.
