I read this and pre-oerdered on the spotWhat is Monster Play?
LOTRO offers a unique form of player vs. player combat known as monster play. Players are transported to the Ettenmoors, a consensual PvMP (Player vs. Monster Player) region about the size of the Shire. Here, the Free Peoples and the forces of Angmar are in constant active conflict, and players can choose to join the fight as either their normal Free Peoples character, or as one of the servants of the Enemy!
Playing as a Monster
To access monster play, you must begin your journey as a regular Free Peoples player. Once you've attained level 10, travel to one of the monster play portals. To reach one such portal, travel to Bree and locate Beggar's Alley on the western side of town. In this unsavory neighborhood, you'll find a "Fell Scrying Pool." Use this pool to choose to play the part of an Orc-reaver, Spider-weaver, Uruk-blackarrow, Uruk-warleader, or Warg-stalker (all of which start as level 50 monsters). You can also resume life as one of your previously created monster characters here.
