The following are a wealth of articles written by players, covering every aspect of Middle-earth Strategic Gaming.

To the best of our knowledge the information contained within them is correct. However, because they have been written over ten years, during which time some aspects of the game have changed, and because some of what is written is inevitably based on speculation rather fact, we accept no responsibility for any errors that may exist, nor for anything that results from following advice given.

Articles are often discussed on the PBM forum: Click Here to visit the forum and join in!
