    |Introduction|
    ==============
    This FAQ is about characters’ skills and different ways to play the
    game with each character.  All characters have Active and Passive Skills.
    Active skills  are skills you need to press A to do.  Passive skills are
    skills that are always in effect once you put a point into them.  To change
    your active skill that is active, press L.  A picture represents every
    skill. To access your skill page, press START, then the R shoulder button.
    This game also has skill trees. With the skill trees, you need to have at
    least one point in the skills  above a skill to put a point into it.
    Some skills are corrupt.  This means that when you use this skill your
    corruption will increase.  When your corruption increases, the eye of
    Sauron in the top-right hand corner of the screen gets larger.  When the eye
    gets really big and starts pulsing and  flashing, Ringwraiths come and
    attack you.  Only active skills can be corrupt.  All active skills cost
    Spirit to use. The blue orb near the bottom-right hand corner of the screen
    represents your spirit points, or SP.  Some skills also give you hit points
    (health), or HP.  You start the game with one point in this skill on the
    character you are playing. I do not recommend putting many points in these
    skills, with the exception of Legolas’s, because the more points you put
    in, the more Spirit it costs. On all of the characters, I have put these
    skills as secondary. Frodo also starts the game with the ‘The One Ring’
    skill. If you have corrections, additions, or anything else, you can
    e-mail me at LILmonster0291@netscape.net.
    
    ============================
    |Frequently Asked Questions|
    =============================
    This is the Frequently Asked Questions Section. I will add more questions as
    they are asked or as I think of them.
    
    Q: What does Courage do?
    A: Courage adds to your Spirit Points and Hit Points.
    
    Q: What is the maximum number a skill can go up to?
    A: You can put 20 points into a skill, but some items can increase skills
    and you can get them above 20 (such as Sam's Cookpot, +2 to Resist One Ring).
    
    Q: One of my skills is green.  Why?
    A: If you have an item that increases a skill (such as Sam’s Cookpot: +2 to
    Resist One Ring), then the skill the item increases will be green. If
    you have an item that increases all passive skills or all active skills then
    all your passive or active skills will be green, respectively. The item
    that increases a specific skill can usually only be used by the person
    with the skill, such as Sam’s Cookpot.
    
    Q: I have an item that increases one of my skills, but it’s not green. Why?
    
    A: Sometimes, for an item to increase a skill you need to have put at least
    one point into that skill.
    
    Q: When I try to put a point into a skill, it won’t let me.  Why?
    
    A: You either don’t have a skill point in the box on the left, you aren’t
    on the level you need to be on for that skill, or you don’t have a point in
    the skill above that one on the tree.
    
    Q: What does 2H mean?
    A: Two- handed. Some weapons give extra damage if used alone and some must
    be used alone.

    Increases shield block 1%/level.
    
    Parry (level 5)- Aragorn has 5% plus 1% per level to parry enemy blows,
    taking no damage.
    
    Ferocity (level 8)- Slain enemies restore Spirit Points to Aragorn.
    
    -----------------------
    |Dual-Wielding Aragorn|
    ------------------------
    A dual-wielding Aragorn uses two swords, rather than a sword and a
    shield.  This option is only available to Aragorn, since he is the only
    one with the skill Dual Wield. Dual-Wielding Aragorn needs mostly defense
    to make up for not having a shield. Strength is important, but not as
    important as a Sword-and-Shield Aragorn because this one has two swords.
    
    Important Attributes: Defense, Accuracy
    Secondary Attributes: Health, Strength
    Least Important Attribute: Courage
    
    Important Skills: Dual Wield, Parry, Shield Offense
    Secondary Skill: Numenorean Blood, Herbal Remedy
    Least Important Skills: all others
    
    ---------------------------
    |Sword-and-Shield Aragorn|
    ---------------------------
    A sword and shield Aragorn uses a sword and a shield, rather than two
    swords. Most other characters can (or have to) do this, with the exception
    of Legolas (who uses bows) and Gimli (who uses an axe and a shield, or a two
    -handed axe). Sword-and-Shield Aragorn needs a lot of strength to make up
    for the extra damage he is not getting from Dual Wield. Defense is important,
    but not as important for a Dual-Wielding Aragorn because this one has a
    shield.
    
    Important Attributes: Strength, Accuracy
    Secondary Attributes: Health, Defense
    Least Important Attribute: Courage

    |Magic Gandalf|
    ----------------
    Magic Gandalf uses the magic skills he has, instead of the skills that help
    him fight.  There are two different types of magic Gandalfs: Fireworks
    Gandalf and Thunderstrike Gandalf. Fireworks Gandalf uses fireworks instead
    of Thunderstrike, and a thunderstrike Gandalf is the opposite. You could be
    both fireworks Gandalf and Thunderstrike Gandalf, but you would have to
    alternate with skill points. Magic Gandalf (both Thunderstrike and
    Fireworks) need a lot of Courage for more Spirit Points.

    -------------------
     |Fighter Gandalf|
    -------------------
    Fighter Gandalf uses his sword and staff or a 2H sword instead of his magic.
    Most people would prefer a 2H sword to deal out extra damage, but others
    prefer the sword and staff together.  The choice is entirely up to you.
    Fighter Gandalf needs mostly Strength to deal out extra damage and Defense
    because he can’t use shields.

    Critical Shot (level 3)- Increases chance of critical hit 10% + 2%/ level.
    
    -------------------
    |Overdraw Legolas|
    ------------------
    An Overdraw Legolas uses Overdraw as its main skill, rather than
    Spread Fire. All Legolass (Legolai?) need to have Accuracy as their
    main skill, including this one. Courage is not very important because
    Overdraw only uses 6 Spirit per shot. Therefore, Courage is a secondary
    Skill. Defense is important to Legolas because, like Gandalf, he has no
    shield. Overdraw Legolas is probably the most common tactic for using
    Legolas.
    
    Important Attributes: Accuracy, Defense, Strength
    Secondary Attribute: Health
    Least Important Attribute: Courage
    
    Important Skills: Overdraw, Critical Shot
    Secondary Skills: Meditation, Fleet of Foot, Hawkeye
    Least Important Skills: all others
    
    ----------------------
    |Spread Fire Legolas|
    ----------------------
    A Spread Fire Legolas uses Spread Fire as its main skill,  rather than
    Overdraw. Many people dislike using Spread Fire Legolas because it costs
    a lot of Spirit points. Accuracy is not as important for this level because
    Spread Fire gives extra Accuracy per level. Courage is slightly more
    important to a Spread Fire Legolas than to an Overdraw Legolas because
    Spread Fire costs 9 Spirit Points, while Overdraw costs 6. Therefore,
    Courage is a secondary Skill. Defense is important to Legolas because,
    like Gandalf, he has no shield.
    
    
    Important Attributes: Defense, Accuracy, Strength
    Secondary Attributes: Health
    Least Important Attribute: Courage
    
    Important Skills: Spread Fire, Critical Shot
    Secondary Skills: Meditation, Fleet of Foot, Hawkeye
    Least Important Skills: all others
    
    ------------------
    |Fighter Legolas|
    -----------------
    A fighter Legolas uses mainly his passive skills and his bow to kill
    enemies. A Fighter Legolas needs Strength to deal out extra damage.
    Defense is also important because, like Gandalf, Legolas has no shield.
    Fighter Legolas does not need much, if any, Courage because Active Skills
    are not very important. All Legolass (Legolai?) need to have Accuracy as
    their main attribute, including this one.
    
    Important Attributes: Accuracy, Strength
    Secondary Attributes: Health, Defense

    |About Frodo|
    -------------
    Frodo Baggins is a Hobbit from Hobbiton, a land in The Shire. He is the
    Ring-bearer, selected by The Council of Elrond. He set out with Merry, Sam,
    Pippin, Aragorn (or Strider, as the Hobbits called him), Gandalf, Legolas,
    Gimli, and Boromir to Mordor. The beginning of THE LORD OF THE RINGS starts
    out with Frodo’s 33rd birthday. 33 is considered to be the Coming of Age in
    The Shire. When he starts his journey, Frodo is 50 years old. Frodo is the
    only character in the game with no summon skill other than Gimli.

    ------------------
    |Ring-Using Frodo|
    ------------------
    
    A Ring-Using Frodo uses the One Ring skill to fight enemies. Since the One
    Ring skill is corrupt, it is important to have points in the Resist One Ring
    skill. A Ring-Using Frodo also needs a fair amount of Courage because the
    One Ring skill costs 10 Spirit Points. Strength is not as important for this
    Frodo as it is for a fighter Frodo because the One Ring skill does +4 damage
    per level. Strength, therefore, is a secondary skill. Health is not very
    important because Courage gives you Hit Points and because you are
    not going to be attacked a lot by enemies because you will be invisible.
    Strength of the Shire is good because it helps Frodo regenerate his Hit and
    Spirit Points. Defense is not very important because Frodo uses a shield.

    ----------------
    |Trapper Frodo|
    ---------------
    A Trapper Frodo uses the Snare skill to kill enemies. This tactic can be
    difficult because you not only have to set the traps, but you have to lure
    the enemies into them. Courage is important for a Trapper Frodo because it
    costs 9 Spirit Points to set a trap. Strength is not as important for this
    Frodo as it is for a fighter Frodo because you will be setting traps most
    of the time, rather than fighting with your knife. Defense is not very
    important because Frodo uses a shield. Strength of the Shire is good because
    it helps Frodo regenerate his Hit and Spirit Points, which are important to
    this type of Frodo. Health is not very important because Courage gives you
    Hit Points.

    |Fighter Frodo|
    ---------------
    A Fighter Frodo uses his knife to kill enemies. Strength is important to
    this type of Frodo because it helps him deal out more damage. Unlike the
    other Frodos, Courage is not very important to this one because you are
    mostly hacking away at enemies with your knife. Health is more important to
    this Frodo than to the others because there is more chance you will be hit
    and because you are not putting many points into Courage. Defense is not
    very important because Frodo uses a shield. Strength of the Shire is good
    because it helps Frodo regenerate his Hit and Spirit Points, which are also
    important to this type of Frodo.

    Ferocity (level 10)- Slain enemies restore Spirit Points to Eowyn.
    
    
    ---------------
    |Fighter Eowyn|
    ---------------
    A fighter Eowyn uses a sword and shield or a 2H sword to kill enemies. Most
    people would prefer to put a few points into Stand Fast and use a 2H sword,
    but some people prefer the extra shield block. Strength is important to this
    Eowyn so she can deal out the extra damage. Defense is more important if you
    are using a 2H sword instead of sword and shield. Iron Will is important to
    this Eowyn so she can regenerate hit points easier. Double Strike is also a
    good skill to have for this Eowyn because it deals out more damage. Eyes of
    Rohan is a good skill to have to find a good sword and shield, if you are
    using a shield. Courage is not very important because Double Strike is just
    about the only active skill that helps and it only costs 7 Spirit Points.
    Health is fairly important to this Eowyn because there is more chance that
    you will be hit.

    ----------------
    |Passive Eowyn|
    ---------------
    A Passive Eowyn uses her passive skills to help her to kill enemies. This
    Eowyn is pretty much like a fighter a fighter Eowyn but uses more passive
    skills. Courage is not important because passive skills do not cost Spirit
    Points to use. I would suggest to use a 2H sword for this Eowyn because you
    will most likely be putting points into Stand Fast, but I will still put
    sword and shield. Health is fairly important to this Eowyn because there is
    more chance that you will be hit. Strength is important to this Eowyn so she
    can deal out the extra damage. Defense is more important if you are using a
    2H sword instead of sword and shield. Iron Will is important to this Eowyn
    so she can regenerate hit points easier. Be careful with Strength of Heart,
    though. You may put too many points into it that you won’t be able to summon
    Ringwraiths, so the extra 2 damage per level will be useless.

    -------------------------
    |Princess of Rohan Eowyn|
    -------------------------
    A Princess of Rohan Eowyn uses Princess of Rohan to stun enemies and then
    uses her sword to kill them. Again, you can use a 2H sword or a sword and
    shield. I would recommend a 2H sword again because you will most likely be
    using Princess of Rohan to stun the enemies, running away, and killing them.
    Courage is important because the more points you put into Princess of Rohan,
    the more Spirit points it costs. Strength is important for this Eowyn, too,
    because after you stun an enemy you must kill it within a few seconds.
    Health is not very important because Courage gives you Hit Points.

    |About Gimli|

    Gimli, son of Gloin, is a dwarf, who, in the beginning of THE LORD OF THE

    unexpected relationship with Legolas. Gimli comes from the Blue Mountains.
    He is sometimes called Gimli Elf-friend and Lord of the Glittering Caves.
    Some stories say that he and Legolas sailed into the West together.
    If this is true, then Gimli was the only Dwarf to go to the Undying Lands.

    |Fighter Gimli|
    ----------------
    A fighter Gimli uses his axe and some of his skills to kill enemies.
    Like moat of the other fighter characters, you can play Gimli with a 2H axe
    or an axe and a shield. Strength is the most important attribute to help deal
    out ultimate damage. Accuracy is pretty important so you can hit your
    enemies. Health is fairly important because there is a greater chance you
    will be hit because Gimli is a melee character. Defense is more important to
    a 2H axe Gimli because he has no shield, but it is still important to a Gimli
    with an axe and a shield. Courage is not too important because pretty much
    the only Active Skills useful to this type of Gimli are Whirlwind Attack and
    Berserk Fury, which only cost 6 and 10 SP to use. Strength of Beard is a very
    helpful skill to get more HP without putting attribute points into Health or
    Courage so you can concentrate more on Defense and Strength. Axe Throw is
    good for the occasional needed long-range attack to get the Crebain.
