User:Magill/Sandbox-Create a region

From Lotro-Wiki.com
Jump to: navigation, search

This is an attempt to document: The Structure of a Region by Category.

Using Update 6, The Great River, as the guideline, one assumes that Riders of Rohan will follow pretty much the same design.

One presumes that there will be one new Region called Rohan, but it might be broken into multiple Regions for release purposes. Only time will tell. (I notice that we already have a region -- Gondor (An artifact of the Epic Quest line's Session Play).

This characterization also reflects the efforts to clean-up/restructure long existent areas.

It also reflects the documentation effort outlined at User:Magill/ToDo, especially with regards to the Categorization merge effort begun last summer.

The Structure of a Region by Category

When creating a new region the following layout exists:
