The Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) is the first massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) set in the world of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. LOTRO takes place in a persistent online world populated with real and computer players that continue to function even when you turn the game off.

From the far corners of Eriador in Middle-earth, new adventurers are coming forward to face the growing evil in the west. The forces of Mordor are mobilizing, the Nazgül hunt for the One Ring, and the land itself is in peril. Into this world come new adventurers: Men, Dwarves, Elves and even Hobbits. Working together in small and large groups, they will explore the world, and drive back the forces of Sauron. Or build their home and hearth. Or toss back a friendly pint at the local inn, accompanied by song and tale. Or craft mithril swords for others to wield. For this is the world of Middle-earth, your home in the world of Tolkien.
