Who will you play as first?

Well, who will you play as first, in the random map part of the game? (or if were lucky multiplayer) Not counting the campaigns that will be released in chunks before the entire game.
For me, deffinatly the Forces of Evil, probably in the 3rd age. Second would most likely be the Dwarves, not sure what age though.

I'd much rather be Mirkwood in the TA, since they are the most numerous of the Elven kingdoms, but that's obviously not an option - as of yet.

pfft, the Forces of Evil will crush your Elves

I always feel like the Noldor are too uptight and too legalistic, while the Sindar seem more quiet and more content with what they have.
Speaking of which, I need to ask a question: how functional will the 'minor' civilizations be? Will they have a complete assortment of units to fill all roles the way the major civilizations do? I seem to recall that the minor civs will be made playable, but it would be good to know how complete they will in fact be.

I remeber that they were going to be used to trade with, and make you stronger by having alliances with them. I think some races such as the Forces of Evil can use the minor civs units as mercenaries but come with certain penalties.
But I dont remeber hearing about them becoming playable, could be wrong though.

The strength of a style is that it focuses, giving form. The more distinct the style, the greater the strength. The weakness of a style is that it focuses, giving form. The more distinct the style, the greater the weakness.

In general, I agree that in the Third Age, the Noldor are a minor civilization, while the Avari are a major one. Rivendell mattered in the Third Age only because it was a haven for the heroes of other factions, most notably the remnants of Arnor and most importantly of all the Fellowship of the Ring.
Incidentally, Rohirwine, why Sindar for you, too? Same reasons as me, or different?

Sorry for the mega-necromancy... at this point, any post to an existing thread is necromancy.
