    I heard they were adding a pet door to the black gate to allow the chickens in.

    Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an upcoming action role-playing video game developed by Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It is the sequel to 2014’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and scheduled to be released worldwide on October 10, 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will also be available on iOS and Android as a free-to-play top-down game. Shadow of War continues the previous game’s narrative, based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendarium with events occurring between those of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Like its predecessor, the game also takes heavy inspiration from director Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings film adaptations. The player continues the story of the ranger Talion who shares his body with the spirit of the elf lord Celebrimbor, as they use one of the Rings of Power to amass an army to fight against Sauron and his Nazgûl forces. The game builds upon the Nemesis system introduced in Shadow of Mordor, allowing Talion to gain Followers from several races of Middle-earth including Uruk-Hai and Olog-hai and plan out complex strategies using these to complete missions.

    Shadow Of War Mobile – is a stand alone free to play mobile game (Read buy stuff to have a better game play experience) If you watch the trailer for with the game or mobile you will see Shelob in her “fair form” TLDR version – Shelob can shapeshift into a female, (game cannon only, not Tolkien cannon) She first did this, after she was betrayed by Saruon.

    Faust of Ered…. I kept hearing Arred. Was thinking… What the heck did I SS this week?

  4. Sam Burke /

    I think the best title for a Chicken getting into Mordor would be Wing-bearer.
