Lothlorien Questing Developer Diary

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

It's been some time since we've seen a developer diary. Not since the release of Moria as far as I can tell or remember. As such, it's a nice surprise today to see that MadeOfLions has posted a developer diary about Lothlorien questing. I previously mentioned I liked the idea of gaining admittance based on the rep and should you try to enter Lothlorien without the proper rep, you will be killed. MoL talks about the different ways you can gain enough reputation to be able to enter Lothlorien proper. Caras Galadhon, the city of the elves of Lothlorien is the most secure and thus requires the most rep to enter.

There's also a uniquely interactive and repeatable Battle of Lorien. This is where the orcs, having been stirred up by the Balrog fight and the fellowship's passing, storm out of Moria and siege Lothlorien. The fellowship is busy resting and prepairing for the continued journey, so that leaves your band of adventurers to help the elves defend their borders. See the diary for more details. This seems like a wonderful six-man to play and play again.
