    I hadn’t heard of LOTR when I got this, just looked cool. And, the computer I played it on didn’t have MIDI, so the music and sounds were trashy 8-bit lol. Imagine my surprise when I played it on a newer computer and it sounded so clear.

    Keep Glorfindel, leave Bill. Train the crap out of Merry on archery. Kill Balrog. Break game. I did this in 1994, it was great.

    Thanks for sharing! Many years ago, this was the first RPG I ever played and it took me forever to figure out what I was supposed to do since I hadn't read the books yet. Good times.
