    No. The Shepard rapeface meme has been around a while, but that's probably the most disturbing form I've yet seen of it. :p

    And I believe SNL has already enlightened us as to just what is in that box.

    This page of the thread gives "Interest Measurement" a whole new meaning.

    An RP based on the work of JRR Tolkien, chronicling a band of Men from the East and the South headed West when their homes finally fall to the Dark Lord. An exploration of the world beyond the continent of Middle-earth.

    Interesting?

    Totally had a similar idea. Would epic deeds be part and parcel?

    Wow, I didn't even know Middle-Earth was just a continent in that setting. I would totally play that game, because it allows the more casual fan (like me) to play alongside the hardcore Tolkien devotee without there being a vast disparity in knowledge.

    Certainly sounds interesting. Have to brush up on my Tolkien EU though :p

    I'd play provided I don't have to brush up on my Tolkien EU. :p

    @Penguinator: Epic deeds ARE the parcel.
    @Winged: My thoughts, too.
    @Skywalker and Ramza: Whichever works haha.
    @Sinre: MASH-UP!
    @Saintheart: Saintheart's interest bolsters my confidence.

    Clarification, I'm only interested because I want to be able to see your strangely compelling avatar on a daily basis, Matt. :D :D :D

    Umbar, Rhun, the Haradwaith. Good stuff, the great unexplored areas of Middle Earth. With a few interesting hints of what might be there ...

    And my axe! I mean, uh, keyboard...yeah. *strokes dwarven beard thoughtfully* I'd be down for this. Never played any Tolkien based RPG's. Sounds like an interesting challenge.

    I've been thinking and I would like to see a game that uses the power of like to not only drive the story but also determine how the game progresses. I was thinking a political redistribution game might work, but a mystery were everyone could be suspect might also work and the person with the most likes becomes the suspect, but necessarily the murder or guilty party.

    I like cyberpunk but I don't know much about Sprawl, to be honest. I'd be willing to familiarize myself though.

    EDIT: By now wiki has told me that William Gibson in fact coined that term. Looks like I have more familiarizing to do than I thought :p
