Status Update Interview

Status Update Interview - MMORPG.com

Carolyn Koh caught up to Craig Alexander, Turbine's VP of Development, and Meghan Rodberg, LotRO's Community Manager, at LOGIN in Seattle. There she interviewed them both about the happenings in Lord of the Rings Online.

Currently, the Mines of Moria are open for players. The storyline is set in Moria itself, and at this point in time, the narration has changed from Gandalf to Galadriel as the Fellowship has already passed through Moria and Gandalf is presumed lost. The chronology however, is not the same for all players as the game makes use of instances to advance the epic storyline.

“The nice thing about MMOs is that we can go back and change things as the story moves forward,” said Meghan, referring to how for players that have advanced through the storyline no longer see members of the Fellowship wandering around in the public landscape. They still can be found by new players playing through the beginning story, but the quest now takes them into an instanced area.
