with all my lovely elves created there. *g* But it looks as I really should give it a go soon, and keep a lookout for the new one. :)

Interesting news about the new game. I've bought Shadow of Mordor some time ago, but never really played it so far; I'm not playing often and when I do, I'm still stuck at Skyrim

PS. Do you plan to publish this professionally?

Author's Response: Thanks! Well, I've been interested in folklore since I was a kid (yeah, I'm weird like that) and read quite a few collections of Finnish and European Medieval folk stories. When I read Silmarillion for the first time, the most obvious connections (e.g. T
