Turbine & Middle Earth Online?

A post on Warcry's Crossroads of Dereth offers some information found in an article in the current print issue of Computer Games Magazine that reveals the developer on the planned upcoming Middle Earth Online game (story) based on the world created by J.R.R. Tolkien, saying the game is being created by Asheron's Call developer Turbine Entertainment. They also offer a bit on what gameplay will entail, here's some of that: "Middle-Earth Online sets itself during the fellowship's conflict with Sauron, and will entail Men, Dwarves, Elves and Hobbits working together in small and large groups, where they will explore the world, build homes and craft Mithril Swords, or just get drunk and sing. A large number of resources will enable you to create more powerful weapons and armors, and even food or decorative items. High-end crafters can create the most interesting items in the game."

...or just get drunk and sing

And this is different from my real, mundane existence... how, exactly? OK, I don't sing-- but I do throw things at the karaoke "singers" in my favorite watering hole. I believe that counts as revelry, yes?
