The Fellowship of the Ring 2 is Endoras the Elf's attempt to follow up on StG_Phoenix's Fellowship of the Ring scenario (one of the most popular Blacksmith LotR scenarios, of which there are many!).

Playability: 2
Because of the bug that put Frodo near Glorfindel at the beginning, I was not sure what to do with Frodo...got him killed by the Nazgûl...owch. This did not make me lose the game, though (and it should have, this being LotR). It took me a bit of thinking to figure out what to do, and the solution is just to leave Frodo alone and bring Aragorn and the other hobbits to him. However, if it weren't for that bug, this would be quite a good scenario. Please fix it, Endoras! When I crossed the river into "Rivendell" (there was no Rivendell), I didn't win. What do I have to do to win?

Balance: 2
It was far too easy, Aragorn with his 220 attack just sliced through the orcs, and even the Nazgûl were killed in one swipe. The only thing I would be worried about is the hobbits, but even they have 500 hp. When the Ringwraiths started chasing Frodo, I just had Aragorn kill them, and then had a lot of empty land to trek through boringly.

Creativity: 3
This map was not especially creative, but it wasn't boring either. Therefore I give average score. Sorry, but I hate rating creativity!

Map Design: 4
I quite liked the map design; the Great Road (or whatever it's called) was very tastefully laid out with cliffs and good elevation use. Bree was small, but nice, although I would have liked a bit more renaming. One thing that bugged me was Weathertop, it was a boring square elevation with a few palisades, not much room to manoever. However, the map design was great overall.

Story/Instructions: 1
No instructions. Well, how am I supposed to give anything more than a 1 with no instructions? Especially since Frodo is subject to that bug; I had no idea what to do!

Additional Comments: This has the potential to becoming a great LotR scenario, but fix that goddamn bug and make it a bit harder, and write instructions! Great attempt, Endoras!
