This roleplay site is canon with room for some alternate universe aspects (so long as it respects the work of Tolkien, respects the characters as we know them to be and does not damage or hinder the Company's journey to Erebor). We follow the films of Peter Jackson wherever they deviate from the book. Most of our threads take place around the time of the Quest to Erebor (T.A. 2941) but you are also most welcome to roleplay events from before and after the Quest in order to further develop your characters.
Mr. Bilbo Baggins was a most respected Hobbit, with no time for adventures (“Nasty, disturbing, uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!”). That is until he finds himself reluctantly whisked away from his comfortable, homely and beloved hobbit-hole by Gandalf the Grey and a motley crew of Dwarves. Thus begins a great adventure, with the Company of Thorin Oakenshield seeking to reclaim the lost Dwarven kingdom of Erebor from the dangerous and covetous Dragon, Smaug the Magnificent. All the while Azog the Defiler, the pale chieftain of the Orcs of Moria, pursues the Company with the intention of ending the Line of Durin...
As this journey takes place, a terrible power rises in Middle Earth. In the ruined fortress of Dol Guldur, the black magic of the mysterious Necromancer restores the dead to life. The forest of Greenwood, home to the Elves, has grown caliginous and now vile Giant Spiders dwell here. It comes as little surprise that the forest has thus been renamed Mirkwood. The growing darkness can be felt all over Middle Earth, by the evil and the good alike. The numbers of Orcs increases, as do the frequency and ferocity of their attacks, striking fear into the hearts of Men.
Middle Earth lies at your feet, ready and waiting for you to begin your adventure. Be sure to check out the Canon List
