    I so wish I would've kept my old game books and Dragon magazines. Alas, they were stolen by Gypsies in the Midwest, US. True story. Moving on...

    This guy's apparently sitting on a lot of old (and high-priced) Middle-Earth gaming stuff.

    As I recall, it was a d100 system. I remember running and playing a few short-lived campaigns.

    Huh... that actually looks a lot like the floor-plan design they had in the movie, except on a smaller scale than the film. I'd have to crack open my book to see if Tolkien described it with walk-ways and spans and pillars and such, but its late and thats not happening!

    ICE games. Their Middle Earth system was a variation on Rolemaster. I never did the Middle Earth stuff, but, I did use the Rolemaster system. It's definitely d100 percentile dice based.

    You're right, @Seagrim. I never had this board game, but we did play the Rolemaster system. Good times.
