Q: I've also noticed players seem to enjoy running across characters from the book, such as getting a mission from Aragorn, seeing Gimli or Gandalf, or even Tom Bombadil for that matter. Are there going to be anymore of those interactions in Evendim, and if so can you tell us who and in what capacity?
A: Sure, absolutely. I won't give away too much, but you'll encounter an Ent in the world for the first time. And you'll also spend some more time with Aragorn and a few other folks; you actually end up helping Aragorn reforge Narsil.
In the story, we all know Narsil was in charge, and it becomes whole in time for Aragorn to join the fellowship and move forward. It's not specifically described as to how and where that happens, so we've made it happen in Evendim at a ring forge - which is in the books - where the ring was forged.
The whole thing about Evendim is that this is the place where the kingdom of Arnor once was, and so when Aragorn becomes king at the end of "Return of the King" that is actually where he goes to rebuild the kingdom of Arnor, so it's a very important historical place. You are there to help him find some very valuable and rare artifacts in Evendim, which agents of Angmar are also after. And once you find them, you help him reforge Narsil, and Gandalf is there, a whole bunch of other people.
