Fire arms sound cool! I particularly like the idea of a knight poncing about on a horse with his beautifuly polished, silver chased rifle, ---- lol!

Most people actually forget that Lotr is actually closer to 12th or 13th century than it is to medaeval. It's explicitely stated in the hobbit that Goblins loved explosives, and the various orc armies certainly had them, ----- though I'd guess they were just at the lighting kegs of pouder stage rather than going on to arquebus's and so on, ---- and afterall they had coloured fireworks which implies not just gun pouder, but more chemical knolidge of explosives to get the different colours.


Who knows, maybe by the time Aragorn's son got on the throne 110 years after the end of Lotr, maybe he was taking time off from the ruling business for a spot of orc shooting, ---- lol!

Beware the Grue!

Hi,
Yeah, I thought that too. All too often DND guilds appose any kind of firearms, cannons, and anything a little more modern and reduce game play to swords, daggers, and spears. Those weapons have their place, are cool, but it is nice to have some technological breakthroughs such as simple firearms and cannons now and then. As for when the game will get released that is a long way into the future. If Sryth took years to get as good as it is my own RPG game project will equally take as long. Probably longer since I am still finishing up MOTA.
