I am a King James Bible believing Christian and I think that the Lord of the Rings were the best movies ever made!

Hello fellow Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Earth fans! This is my first time blogging so I'm interested to see how it goes. I have never made a mod in my life(I haven't even the slightest idea how to) so the purpose of this blog is to try to give a mod maker(namely The Edain Team because they made an awesome mod) the inspiration to make a "The Hobbit" Campaign. I have a few ideas for it, and if anyone else has any(or tweaks to mine), feel free to post them in the comments. My first idea is to start off the campaign with Smaug's(and maybe even add goblins) attack on the Lonely Mountain. You could have Thorin Oakenshield and the others who survived start on one side of the map and have the objective be to get them to safety by fleeing the Lonely Mountain. This could be achieved by having Dwarves(That you would have to build) attack Smaug(They wouldnt be able to kill him but just slow him down and this could be where the goblins come in cause you could kill them). Smaug would kill Thorin and his companions if he wasn't attacked enough. When they reach the other side of the map the battle would be over. It would be a quick battle but it could make it more book-like and add effect I think. You could maybe then have a level in between where the Dwarves have to fight goblins on their journey to the Shire(I know its not in the book but it would add another battle). Then of course you could have something where Bilbo and the Dwarves fight the 3 trolls(maybe just add Rangers and Orcs to it some since the Dwarves never actually kill the trolls). Then you can have a battle where the goblins battle just the Dwarves, Bilbo, and Gandalf(I'm thinking of something like how they did the Fellowship in the Mines of Moria in the Good Campaign on the first Battle for Middle-Earth). Then I think it would be cool to have a battle with something like Beorn and a bunch of animals attacking the Goblins that chased after the Dwarves(It does say something about Beorn going and fending of the Goblins in the book). Also a battle where Biblo(with maybe help from the Mirkwood Elves) goes and frees the Dwarves from the Spiders in Mirkwood. I think that would be a fun Campaign battle. And then of course you could have the Battle of Dul-Godur where the Elves, Gandalf, and whoever else fight the Necromancer. You would need to have a battle where Smaug attacks Dale and where he gets killed(this would be an essential part). And then to end it all off have the Battle of Five Armies and make it stinkin awesome!!! So thats generally what I had in mind. I know that there are probably some problems in it but that is where the mod makers come in. Feel free to add anything to it but please no swearing or vulgar comments! I hope you have enjoyed this and I'll leave you with the totally random comment of the day:
