Gollum offers us his viewpoint on ‘his precious’ in this spoof version of Sweet Dreamsby theEurythmics, in which he discusses what he thinks about all the various parties – from Sauron to Gandalf – who are attempting to obtain his One Ring. Gollum – predictably enough – has a deep distrust for everyone he comes into touch with, including elves, orcs, Shelob, Sauron, Gandalf, and Strider, to name a few. In contrast to this, he reserves his specific malice for the Hobbit ring-bearers Frodo and Sam, pledging to “get them back” before the conclusion of the film.
The songwriters took advantage of the chance to restructure the song at the same time, resulting in this version having four full verses and two bridge sections.

In addition, the song’s creators seized the chance to reorganize its structure, resulting in four complete verses and two bridge sections in this new version.
Sweet dreams are brought to you by my lovely. It beckons and sings, and it speaks in my head while it does so. When my life was stolen from me, I went on a global tour. Everyone is on the lookout for my ring! Gandalf believes he can make use of you. You, on the other hand, will not be using my ring! They want to abuse you because you are an elf! But with this ring, I can be anyone I want to be!
Sweet dreams are brought to you by my little one! It sings and beckons, and I hear it whisper in my head. When it was taken away from me, I traveled the world. Nobody can find my ring, and everyone is looking for it. Gandalf believes that he can make use of you to further his own interests. You, on the other hand, will not wear my ring! They want to abuse you because you are an elf. With my ring, on the other hand, I can be anybody or anything I choose.
Sweet dreams and more better things to come I’ll follow their journey through the tomb of the kings, just like they did. I’ll follow the shadows all the way through the tunnels of Moria. They’ll never be able to get rid of me — until they get wings!
You are left with only the hobbits. They are by alone — and there are only two of them. Sam Gamgee is the one who accuses you. I’m going to acquire my ring – and put it to good use! Do you enjoy unique poetry? For further information, please see Tolkien Tribute.
Please remove the eye of Sauron effect on legendary servers
- I’d like to request that the developers remove the effect of the eye of Sauron from the legendary servers. No reason should exist for what appears to be an airstrike to suddenly descend on your character’s location. To be honest, it simply pulls me out of the game. It is not conducive to immersion. Not to mention the eye that hovers above your character at all times. What’s wrong with just increasing the morale of adversaries and causing them to strike harder? In my opinion, it is a poorly developed concept. It’s merely a gimmick. “They were tall and fair, and the hemlock-umbels stood tall and fair among the tall and fine grass. And in the glade, there was a flash of light. Of glittering lights in the shadows. Tinuviel was dancing in the vicinity to the sounds of an unknown pipe. And the light of the stars shone through her hair, and glowed in her clothing.” J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit I think Sauron’s Drone Strikes are fantastic. Allows you to remain alert and mobile. However, many individuals have expressed dissatisfaction with the fuzzy visual look caused by the red eye, which I can understand. Some of the visual discomfort caused by the various statuses might be eliminated by removing the full screen fog from the red eye and replacing it with the Shadow of Mordor ground effect on the purple eye. But don’t make any changes to the difficulty settings or the effects that result from them. They’re just fantastic. Arda Shrugged – Elendilstone / Landroval / Anor

I had to turn off the post-processing effects due to time constraints, and I would dearly love to get them back. Yes, I agree, that effect is quite irritating to me.

Tolkien’s The Hobbit The eye of Sauron effect, in my opinion, is really irritating. The fuzzy screen requires that I turn off post processing effects in order to appreciate the game’s other graphical components, which takes away from my pleasure of the game’s other visual aspects. I also don’t mind the air attacks that occur from time to time. But what if I get into a fight every time? And the eye simply sits over you, refusing to go away even after you’ve been debuffed. It’s simply too much to bear. I’m currently playing a light class on a 3+ difficulty setting, by the way. Yesterday, at 10:21 A.M., lorienleisha posted a message on the forum.

- My time spent on Treebeard has been really enjoyable. To acquire a barrel of pipe-weed from the bear cave south of Tookborough, I had to go out into the woods right now. I also had to keep the hobbits under the willow tree safe from the wasps and bears who were attacking them. I had to complete both tasks as part of a group. I appreciate that it is vital to get together once more. It makes the game far more enjoyable than doing everything on your own and in a hurried manner. I’m still not a fan of the effects, but at the very least I’m enjoying the game a lot more now. It’s sentimental to revisit these older regions while also presenting a challenge and working as a group. I’m looking forward to visiting the Greenfields.

- July 4, 2021, 01:36 AM24 I really like the sound effect of the orbital attack, albeit I have to confess that it looks a little ridiculous and out of place. The full-screen effect should be removed immediately. If the EoS occurred once every 2 hours, that would be OK. However, it is basically indefinite. The EYE symbol is also a little unpleasant because it is always turned on. Maybe you could project things onto the ground or something like that. I’m also undecided about how I feel about corruptions and the like. I just wanted the battle to be more like the original Lord of the Rings (although I believe this is a poor option). Mobs respawn too quickly at this difficulty, multiple difficulty levels interact in an unsatisfactory manner, and the EoS effects may have an excessive impact)

Mordor – Original Music Soundtrack
|Mordor – Original Music Soundtrack|
|Mordor soundtrack album art|
|Released||November 1, 2017|
|LotRO Soundtrack Chronology|
|10th Anniversary Commemorative Soundtrack(2017)||Mordor – Original Music Soundtrack(2017)||Update 22: Legacy of the Necromancer – Soundtrack(2018)|
A new official soundtrack for the MORDO expansion was published on November 1, 2017, and it is called Mordor – Original Music Soundtrack. It was produced by Chance Thomas and made available in digital shops as well as on the HUGEsound Records website in early 2018. In conjunction with the publication of Mordor, the theme song “Coronation of Aragorn” was adopted as the main theme for LotRO, replacing the previous theme song “LotRO Legacy” from the Riders of Rohansoundtrack. It may be heard while selecting a character on the character selection screen.
Production and Release
Chance Thomas was given explanations of the many regions for which he would be writing at the outset of the project. It was a departure from his earlier LotRO works because Mordor is a considerably darker place than any other he’s ever written for in the game. Dor Amarth, in particular, stuck out to Thomas because of the way it appeared to be gloomy, deserted, and eerie. Despite this, everything we do is inspired by Tolkien. Consequently, no matter how dark, no matter how oppressive, no matter how horrible the situation appears to be, there must always be a grasping for light.
- When they arrived at the recording studio, they discovered that there was no sheet music for them to perform!
- He used the diverse sounds made by the different flutes to produce a variety of distinct tones on the piano.
- In the beginning, the primary melodic line is performed by six French horns.
- On the CD, the song was eventually given the title “After the Fall.” When the Mordor expansion was released on August 2, 2017, the music on the character selecting screen was changed to “Coronation of Aragorn,” which replaced “LotRO Legacy” as the background music.
- The Shire theme is also thrown in towards the end for good measure.
- It is reasonable to suppose that these are designed to depict some of the organizations who took part in the two fights at the Black Gate in the series.
- Several years before beginning work on the Mordor soundtrack, Thomas was driving home from a game developers conference in San Francisco at night when the lyrics to Tolkien’s strolling song “The Road Goes Ever On” started playing in his brain.
- After years of deliberation, Thomas chose to utilize this tune as the music for the credits of the Mordor film soundtrack.
- After auditioning a slew of performers, including an ancient Celtic singer and a rock singer, Thomas settled on David Osmond as his final selection.
In the United States, the album was made available for digital download on November 1, 2017, both directly through HUGEsound records and through various digital music outlets.
Chance Thomas created all of the music on the album.

LOTRO Legendarium: Reviewing the Mordor soundtrack
Now, here’s something strange: when I heard thatLord of the Rings Onlinehad re-hiredChance Thomasto soundtrack this year’sMordorexpansion, I became a little apprehensive. The reason for this isn’t that I despise him or his music; on the contrary, I realized that Thomas has contributed a significant quantity of excellent music to the treasured score of this MMO. In addition, while SSG has done a fantastic job with its in-house scoring (Gondor in particular), I would generally be overjoyed if Thomas were to return for another season.
Mordor is a world of pure evil, and I understood that this would necessitate the use of an oppressively black music to match.
After getting an advance copy of the score (which will be available for purchase digitally on November 1st), I discovered that my fears had been confirmed.
While there are several outstanding pieces and some pretty fascinating themes going on with these tracks, let’s take a look at them track by track to have a better understanding of this newest chapter in theLOTROmusical collection as a whole.
From the very outset, the Mordor Original Soundtrack establishes a sense of gloom that distinguishes it from the more optimistic and uplifting tracks that came before it. Neither the Shire’s sunlight nor Gondor’s hopefulness can be found in this evil seething with gloom.
2. After the Fall
It is this gloomy atmosphere that distinguishes the Mordor Original Soundtrack from the more upbeat and uplifting albums that have come before it from the very beginning. With no touch of Shire sunlight or Gondor optimism, this is pure evil seething with hopelessness.
3. Bring It
Definitely a fight piece, this music jolts us out of the gate with intensity and more pleasant melodies than we’ve heard so far in the album. I really like how the choir and strings contribute to the driving force of this shorter piece, while the percussion should be given a lot of credit for performing all of the heavy lifting. It kind of floats out in the end, as if it’s trying to represent a circle. I wish it had been a little longer.
4. Lhaereth of Seregost
A tale may be being told in this tune, which swings between being creepy and melodramatic, and it isn’t a very upbeat one, either. It has an old-fashioned tone to it, which reminds me a lot of films and television series from the 1950s and 1960s, when the orchestra had no trouble getting attention and telegraphing powerful emotions.
5. Conquest of the Dark Lands
There’s a tale going on in this music, which fluctuates between eerie and tragic, and it’s not a very upbeat one.
That old-timey tone is something I typically connect with films and television series from the 1950s through the 1960s, when the orchestra had no trouble standing out and telegraphing powerful emotions through the music.
6. Lurking in Lhingris
Basically, there’s this really basic music cue that you’ve probably heard dozens of times without giving it much thought. It’s a creepy-crawly sound that is nearly always followed by spiders (or other bugs) skittering all over the place, and it’s quite effective. Because of pizzicato, a technique in which a violinist (or other stringed instrument performer) rapidly finger-plucks the instrument instead of using his or her bow, this is possible. As a result, what happened? A track like as this…
7. Fate of Ayorzen
Basically, there’s this pretty regular music cue that you’ve probably heard hundreds of times without giving it much thought, and it’s this creepy-crawly sound that is nearly always followed with spiders (or other bugs) skittering all over the place. Because of pizzicato, a technique in which a violinist (or other stringed instrument performer) rapidly finger-plucks the instrument instead of using his or her bow, this is possible! In the end, what happened was this: Such a song is rare to come across…
8. The Burning at Talath Urui
This is another another genuinely delightful track, full of stupid nothings about flowers and leaping minnows… leaping minnows in HELL, to be precise. Much after a recent volcanic makeover, Mordor isn’t very cheerful, and an entire zone that has recently had a volcanic facelift is even more gloomy. This composition nearly suffocates a lonely flute that attempts to usher in a moment of serenity and beauty. It’s a fairly painful experience from beginning to end.
9. Coronation of Aragorn
Something that isn’t full of clanging and despondency, at long last! While some LOTRO fans may recall this music as the one that replaced the login theme, it is nevertheless a stately, cheerful composition that contains several nods to prior Chance Thomas tracks. It’s deliberate and deliberate in the sense that you’d expect for a kingly coronation ritual to be. This is without a doubt the album’s standout track.
10. The Black Gate
As the Free Peoples of Middle-earth make a heroic fight against the power of Mordor, motifs from Gondor and Rohan reappear in this final sequence. It starts off with a really forceful position before gradually giving way to uncertainty and anxiety as time passes.
11. Ugrukhor, Captain of the Pit
Reprises of both Gondor and Rohan motifs appear in this climatic scene, when the Free Peoples of Middle-earth take an honorable stand against the power of Mordor. Initially, it takes a decidedly courageous attitude before gradually giving way to uncertainty and dread.
12. Chant for Sauron
Just look at the headline; you should have an idea of what is going to be discussed. To be clear, this isn’t going to be a kid’s show with a lot of singing. As a result, it’s a poisonous and foreboding anthem to the great evil Despite the fact that he is no longer alive, hearing the voices yell out, “Sauron! Sauron!” is enough to make one’s hair stand up on end.
13. Undoing the Ring of Power
The only thing that breaks up the monotony of this music is a brief appearance by the flute (yet again).
Even though I’m probably done with the chanty choir at this point, it serves an important role in a tale scenario in which the characters are attempting to cleanse Middle-earth of a tremendous evil. It’s likely that I should pass on it.
14. Unleash Terror
The only thing that distinguishes this tune from the others is a brief appearance by the flute (yet again). However, for a literary scenario, this underscores a pivotal time in the liberation of Middle-earth from a great evil, and I may be done with the chanty choir by this point. Perhaps it is best to pass on this one for now.
15. Something Evil Rises
I promise I listened to this from beginning to end three times in a row and came away with nothing in my notes. I’m not making this up. Tracks may be like that at times; they wash in and out of our consciousness without leaving any lasting imprint. I’m certain it was a malicious act, though.
16. Ever On
What a pleasant surprise to discover this music! It’s a tavern ballad replete with lyrics and an upbeat tune that will get you dancing. My understanding is that this is intended to be located somewhere else inside the game. Perhaps during the closing credits? It may be on the verge of being corny, but I really like the tone of the song as well as the danceable jig that it covers. It does sound like something that would be right at home in a 1980s film at times, but it isn’t a deal breaker in my opinion.

Top 5 Tracks From LOTRO’s Mordor Soundtrack
I’m a little disappointed that I haven’t yet dug into the Mordor expansion for The Lord of the Rings Online. It’s possible that my captain is presently sitting in Minas Tirith at level 101 – most likely at that one bar with the three nobles who send him all around the city on one foolish errand after another – because I never even got around to completing the previous several releases’ worth of stuff. When I do check in, I find myself spending more time revisiting previous zones than I do exploring new stuff when I do so.
- Yes, I’m one of those individuals that still listens to in-game music after the 328th time I pass through a zone, and the soundtrack for LOTRO is on par with the soundtracks of nearly every other MMO.
- I was provided with a CD of the Mordor soundtrack, which was published yesterday, by Thomas and his production studio HUGEsound, and I listened to it to see if it could elicit the same amount of emotion that I had had while exploring the whole universe of LOTRO.
- The inability to connect the music to graphics or in-game adventures, as I was able to do with prior LOTRO soundtracks, reduced the total scope of the project.
- In-game places that do not meet the high standards set by the music will most likely leave me feeling let down, so prepare yourself for a disappointing experience!
- No exception may be made in “After The Fall.” The composition is normally sluggish and somber on its own, but knowing that it’s supposed to depict the end of Sauron’s rule gives it a whole new level of significance.
- Lhaereth of Seregost is a fictional character created by author Lhaereth of Seregost.
- In order to marry Sauron, Lhaereth had a dream, and her theme song, which takes a minute to get to its major melody, is equal parts sad, gorgeous and mad, and it perfectly captures the warped “love” that Lhaereth has for Sauron.
- As Aragorn ascends to the throne of Gondor, it’s easy to imagine the coronation music from The Return of the King playing in the background once more.
- A Chant in Honor of Sauron My preference for deep-voiced male choruses has existed since the beginning of Skyrim, and “Chant For Sauron” satisfies that craving well.
- Is Sauron truly beaten at this point?
- Terrorism is unleashed.
“Unleash Terror” surely fits that category. The Mordor Soundtrack is available for purchase on the HUGEsound website, either as individual tracks or as a whole album.
CHALLENGE FOR 30 DAYS IN LOTRO Day 7: What is the best piece of music in the game? When I commend the works of Chance Thomas, I believe I am speaking on behalf of a large number of people. Every piece of music in Lord of the Rings Online is exquisitely constructed, bursting with passion and wonder, and capable of transporting you into Tolkien’s world. LOTRO has hundreds of music to select from, and it’s difficult to pick a favorite from among them all. Purchasing the anniversary soundtrack is simply insufficient; we require all of them, Chance!
- well, pretty about every song anywhere else as well, to be honest.
- It’s remarkable how many unique melodies and themes Chance Thomas has created for our game, each one flawless and unrivaled in terms of quality and sincerity, and each one perfectly executed.
- On a different subject, do you know what’s almost as amazing as listening to music?
- Making music with others is really enjoyable for both you and others who come to listen!
- And I believe we can all agree that there is nothing else quite like Weatherstock, am I correct, my fellow wayfaring companions?
The Lord of the Rings Online team has their own loremaster that studies linguistics and medieval history
I recently re-entered the world of Lord of the Rings Online, and it has been a blast. The main story of The Lord of the Rings has been completed by Standing Stone Games (which took over for the original developer Turbine), which takes players into Mordor, the dark realm of Mordor. This is the culmination of years of work by Standing Stone Games (which took over for the original developer Turbine). However, because Middle-earth is such a vast and mysterious realm, it is only logical that the story should not finish there.
- Destructoid: So, what’s next for LOTRO now that Mordor has been defeated?
- Schneider: The quick answer is that there is an incredible amount of material left.
- (Shadows of Angmar is a well-known and well-loved example of this.) Those far-flung excursions will continue to populate and brighten the map, and the good news is that there is plenty of map to go around.
- The story of Arwen and Aragorn’s wedding, as well as the rule of Aragorn, the new king of Gondor, has much more to offer than that, though.
- Perhaps there are too many.
- Tolkien’s universe is vast, and even after over eleven years of work, it still feels like we’ve just scratched the surface of what he’s created for us.
- The very borders of the map – Umbar and Harad beyond it, Rhûn and Lithlad — have been the destinations of our fantasies, and who knows, maybe one day we’ll make it there ourselves.
If you don’t (and the majority of people don’t), how do you try to work within the constraints of what you can and cannot reference?
The Tolkien Estate is in possession of nearly all of the remaining manuscripts.
He also devotes a significant amount of time to languages, medieval literature, and history.
What has been one of the most difficult hurdles you’ve had to overcome in adapting the source material?
Many things in Middle-earth were described in great detail in the books, yet there are certain individuals, places, and things in the books that are subject to interpretation.
Aside from that, some of the enormous fights and set-pieces are a challenge from a design and gameplay standpoint, but that is precisely one of the reasons we like creating this game.
What was your favorite component of creating such a well-known region of the city?
We were able to discover more about the aftermath of Smaug’s devastation of Lake-town, as well as what happened to Dale and Erebor during the closing days of the War of the Ring, and we were finally able to peer beyond the darkness of Mirkwood and witness it turned into Eryn Lasgalen for the first time.
- As such, it’s been a delight to witness firsthand the differences in culture and architecture between the kingdoms of Elves, Men, and dwarfs in the North.
- What changes have occurred in the gaming world over the past eight years, and how does LOTRO fit into this picture?
- Our older brother, Dungeons & Dragons Online, was another pioneer in this regard.
- Free to Play is our preferred business model since it allows us to provide enjoyment to a large number of players while also creating a stable environment that allows us to continue to run and grow the games eternally.
- We believe that Lord of the Rings Onlinehas some of the greatest storylines in the market, and the fact that it is situated in Middle-earth adds a layer of complexity and depth to the experience owing to the magnificent universe Tolkien created.
Director of Reviews and Co-EIC – Chris has been playing Destructoid since it first came out in 2008. In January of 2009, he eventually made the decision to go the next step and create an account, as well as begin blogging. He’s now a member of the team!
Annatar (Sauron) in Eregion, and more Tengwar
Tengwar in Eregion, and more Annatar (Sauron) in Eregion Some of you may have noticed an odd fresco on one of the walls of the ruins of Tham Mrdain in Eregion (which can be accessed during the epic quest – Volume 1 Book 14 instance: The Doom of the North). Sauron himself appears in the form of Annatar, the “Lord of Gifts,” and is seen among the Noldor smiths, as well as holding many of the power rings of the Noldor. (Funny fact about me: Because Turbine does not own the rights to The Silmarillion or any other Tolkien works other than The Lord of the Rings, they refer to him in a session play as “Antheron Gift-lord.” Surprisingly, if you remain in the vicinity of this painting for an extended period of time, your fear level will shoot through the ceiling, rendering you uselessly shivering in terror.
- On to the point: there’s more tengwar in that section of the book.
- See this thread for further information: p=6067963 post6067963 The idea of attempting something has piqued my interest for quite some time, so here I am!
- That comes as no surprise.
- *SHAKEFIST* I would have suspected, as did the poster on the forums, that this would be Quenya Tengwar, because it was discovered in the forges of the Noldor, but I might be wrong.
Mrontron, the genitive plural of “of the jewel-crafters,” and “elvellon,” “Elf-friend” were given to them both, and then they were given the names Mrodhron, which means “jewel-parent,” and Corfheron, which means “Ring-lord.” Naturally, I am dissatisfied with this, and I have no choice but to go through the process of working it out because I don’t have a life.
- In a way, yes.
- Eventually, this leads to…
- I have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about.
- Anyway, now it’s time to convert theSindarin into English.
(corwN.) means “cunning.” As a result, the people who participated on the forum were almost all correct.
While posing as an elf-friend, Sauron was in fact instructing the Noldor, and by doing so he was, in some ways, a parent to many of their gems and crafts.
yet the elves of Eregion, who lived at the period when this painting was created…
After shanking the last prince of the Noldor, hanging his body on a pole, then riddling him with arrows and carrying him about like a flag, I’m thinking they won’t represent him in a favorable light…
Not to mention his bringing the whole region of Eregion to a new level. Let me venture to guess that they meant “cunning master” by the final term, as an appreciation of his vast understanding of craft lore and claimed role as an ambassador of the Valar.
The Lord of the Rings Online – All Races & Racial Passives
The r aces in The Lord of the Rings Online remain loyal to the story, however we would have liked to have seen a broader diversity of options. Assuming that their genuine racial passives and characteristics, as well as their visuals, include more than enough flavor, you should be able to successfully replicate your favorite Lord of the Rings character, or of course your fictitious Middle Earth impersonator. This guide will provide you with all of the essential racial abilities in an easy-to-reference manner, which should make your decision-making process smoother and your alt construction that much more accurate!
However, in this situation, gender and racial locking is rather lore-friendly and does not impose an excessive amount of restrictions.

The Stout-axes were formerly a part of one of the seven Dwarven houses known as Drasa’s Folk, which was previously a part of one of the seven Dwarven houses known as Drasa’s Folk.
