The Mines of Moria are a dark, dangerous passage through the heart of the Misty Mountains. The upcoming expansion Mines of Moria to Lord of the Rings Online is in its final beta stage (see the trailer here). One of the new classes available to brave the depths of the mines (along with the other adventures within the game) is the dwarf and elven Rune-keepers. Brian "Zombie Columbus” Aloisio enlightens us with the details of this new class in an all new dev journal!
Middle-earth is a land where language has Power, and such words are comprised of rune-letters. Put them together in the right order and the world can be changed in subtle and sometimes grand ways. There are some who greatly specialize in such linguistic arts: they are known as Rune-keepers.
