Subject:[Flame] Re: Casting for the Animated LotR Movie
Date:Fri Jun 11 22:33:30 1999
After reading that casting list for the LotR Animation Movie, Eolung came
up with a BRILLIANT idea: A casting list for the LotR Movie, but with MUME
chars as the LotR chars. Here's my suggestion, it would be funny to hear
other people's ideas too (it's tough to come up with all chars, but some
are rather obvious). I had a lot of fun thinking of these, I bet most folks
have their own ideas too.

I insisted on the race/alignment/class being as correct as I could get it 
(when possible - I mean, balrog, ringwraiths etc. are a bit exotic), and
then I chose the most famous character I could think of. And I chose not
to select more than one char per player. Of course it's a pretty subjective
list, but well, I like it :-)

Oh yes, and the LotR chars are taken straight from the Animated Movie cast
list, I'm sure someone could think of other LotR chars to include too...

Actually, I had a hard time chosing between several chars for almost all
roles,  but this is what I came up with in the end.
