    Default v2.6 Tolkien Quotes Submod == Updated 28th Jan 2015

    Version 2.6
    update your version from TATW 3.2


    Game Save compatible


    Version 2.6 has been proofread and edited by Veteraan.
    Version 2.5.31 has been
    proofread by Jabberjaw.

    Version 2.5.2 has been proofread by ozzi.


    The objective is to create gameplay enhancing panorama over Middle-earths history with emphasis on the time of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, epic lore and the TATW content, through 850 citations.


    This means
    1) that this is the chance to learn new or be reminded of knowlidge about Tolkiens work, like as who really said what or when.
    2) that quotes are choosen mainly from the famous late Third Age but some from/about the Second Age and First Age.
    3) that persons, races, realms, units, events and so on as we meet in TATW to some extent been collect here, so that all factions will get a piece of the cake, both Good and Evil.
    4) that for the gaming experience the lenght of quotes is acknowlidged, tested and adjusted.
    5) you won't get bored with same loadscreen texts over and over


    OBS v 2.5.2 is implemented into TATW 3.2
    v 2.1 incorporated into FRoGS
    v 2.5.2 incorporated into MOS

    Works with all TATW versions and all mods that do not change the quotations. SAVE GAME COMPATIBLE

    Tolkien likes to use ; (Semicolon) as is a sign corresponding a . (Full stop). Thus I have handled semicolons as (invisible) full stops, this mean a quote can begin with lowercase or end without stopmark (.;!?). It's not that I've been lazy in some quotes

    Preview. Brackets is removed since v2.0

















    Sources
    All movie quotes [but two...] is removed
    Earlier I had a version containing some movie quotes but it became obsolete and thus removed.

    Most quotes are from the LotR book trilogy including appendixes. All quotes from LotR have quotations refering to chapter, not book. In the rest of the cases I most often only noted which book it comes from.

    Silmarillions sub book "Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age", Unfinished Tales and The Hobbit has been given generous room. Quenta Silmarillion has not been forgotten nor futher sources as Akallabŕth wich I used, but also Narn i Chţn H˙rin, The Book(s) of Lost Tales, The Lost Road and so on.


    Thanks to
    I give my thanks to Minas Moth who inspired me to make reality of this version of quotemod to begin with.
    Thanks to ozzi whom took upon hunting errors and helping me out, making v2.5.2
    Thanks to Jabberjaw whom took upon hunting errors and helping me out, making v2.5.3
    Thanks to Veteraan whom took upon hunting errors and helping me out, making v2.6
    Thanks further to all who reported errors, making it a better submod!

    Thanks to all who facilitated the process of finding and sort quotes from my different sources.

    Thank you also to the crew of TATW, especially KK who made it part of vanilla content, for the game and all people at this great forum.



    Edits

    25/11-2012 - Typos and errors corrected, one replaced quote; both files edited

    28/2-10/5-2012 50 new quotes and many errors/typos adressed

    17/12-2011 100 new quotes

    13/12-2011 Shortened sources

    9/7-2011 Major concept rework; no new descr_-file needed for those with v1.4

    - New base for quote structure; explaining alterations within [ ... ] removed. Cites are now made more true to the orginal source.
    * All quotes containing brackets has been reworked
    * The author line has been better used to explain the quotes
    * In 15 instances, in 13 quotes (0,016% in v2.4), there are keept "sneaky" modifications: removed [brackets] and thus unmarked alterations (those are not fully accurate then)
    - In some cases quotes has been shortened too, if possible and decent
    - About 40 quotes has been removed and replaced to better fullfill the submods objective
    - Now with 2 easter eggs

    I┤ve already tested it and i prefer shorter quotes, because one can┤t simply pause the loading screen.

    And i┤ll also prefer the quotes not to be altered . If you are used to the books you know what the quote is about, if not, well then you have something to think about

    I choose:

    . "They were many and fierce, but they came from over the mountains, and were unused to the woods." - Legolas about Orcs, in the Council of Elrond

    or sometimes if you feel it could be better (but it can remove some seriousness or suspense):

    . "The Orcs were many and fierce, but they came from over the mountains, and were unused to the woods." - Legolas, in the Council of Elrond

    [ ] must be hidden, as they remove immersion somewhat: I think we must remove literary frame (ingame we're not researching in a library), that's why I added "in". Quotes should be in the more natural language (and we are confident you won't betray JRR texts).
