Xoanon, I have found an interesting item when I downloaded the browser from ‘Neoplanet’, there is an option to join various themed clubs, one of them is The Official LOTR Club, and has images from that beta site from a few days ago.
And indeed it is so, I’ve checked it out, and it is some form of Club with msg boards and chatrooms, all sparse and empty at the moment. Could this be some advanced look at the layout of the Official Site?
Check it out here. You may have to download the Neoplanet Browser to join.
