The Waterworks

Friday, January 23, 2009

My exploration of Moria has been what could be termed systematic. That is, I'm carefully and thoroughly going from zone to zone but not rushing out and looking at everything. I took this approach for the initial part of Eriador opened at release. When Evendim and Forochel were released, I spent the first part of my time just exploring the zone. While this tactic had it's advantages for the explorer and helped me get to know the zone before I started questing and trying to find places, it left me with little exploration to do later on. With Moria, I'm spreading it out. Giving me a little taste of the wonder I get from exploring a new local in Middle-Earth as I go on. So far I've been in the Great Delving, The Silvertine Lodes, and now the Waterworks. Which brings me to the point of this post - screenshot time!

Of the three zones I've visited so far, this has been the most impressive and Moria-like for me. It's so atmospheric. A wide expanse yet dark and dank. Check out the shots below and enjoy the fallen grandeur of the Waterworks.
