Allot of player were worried about the new Naval aspect that is now included in BFME2, with comments like “Not all the factions had boats”, or “Trolls weren’t rowing boats across middle earth!” Well there is nothing to worry about as EA has tied in the naval side perfectly to middle earth.

Thinking of himself as a Dwarf who had hung up his war-ax for a while to go sojourning in the Shire, where he was surrounded by squabbling Hobbits (i.e., Charlene's friends), had actually done a lot for Randy's peace of mind over the years.
In the Tolkien, not the endocrinological or Snow White sense, Randy is a Dwarf.
Before, the term "dwarfs" (with a different spelling) was used, as seen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

But let's say your party experiences excellent weather and arrives at the Cape of Forochel in good shape, and the Lossoth are convinced that you are not a war party sent to punish them by the Witch-king, and you just happen to go at a time when they engage in their winter sports.

Middle-Earth Online will allow you to play as characters of different races, such as humans, dwarves, and elves, and you'll occasionally encounter ancient writing and glyphs in different languages and be unable to read them.
So, in this case, unless you happen to be playing as a dwarf, you'll have to complete various quests on the behalf of the dwarven people so they'll reward you with some rudimentary teachings of their language.
Otherwise, you'll need to enlist the help of a friend playing as a dwarf character if you want to find out what the runes say.

As part of the Earth's fabric, the Elves use, understand and respect the Earth as easily as if it were part of their own bodies.
This is perhaps only to be expected for beings that are tied to the fate of the Earth in a way that is not true of Men.
Tolkien's great powers are ambiguous: the forces of evil, large and small -- Gollum, Saruman, Sauron, even Melkor -- started off with good intentions, but in their quest to work out the minutiae, looking ever deeper into the Earth, rather than up at the stars, they lost sight of the bigger picture of harmonious nature.

How matronly a woman feels compared to a Dwarf, how heavy a Dwarf feels as compared to an Elf, and how graceful that Elf feels compared to a Troll; these examples are vitally important to the game as a whole.
Everything is taken with a grain of salt, but more often than not, watching people act these things out will provide you with something you wouldn't have thought of.  Thankfully, I haven't had anyone tell me 'no' when I've asked.
The second part to this, and perhaps, the most important thing to making a believable world, is how characters feel when compared to each other.
