Jul 15, 2017

Well, that happened. Number 5 was meant to be a happy article looking back on the new rating difficulty with Beta 3 sloping the leveling to be a more accessible, but still equally hard at 105.

What’s behind Mordoor 4 -The flamingo – A high-elf short review

Jul 1, 2017

The high-elfs are here in their own unique zone. I say zone as in it’s not a classical starting zone. You won’t fight any level 1 boars or carry pies. It more of an interactive movie where you see plenty of big names from lotr and a lot of probably big names i’d have to get the Silmarillion out for. No major spoilers included I don’t...

Lobel the little frog from Evendim goes around the lake reminiscing about blue skies, trains of people swimming by while he sunbaths on the rock.
