The Escapist writes: "Paying a visit to the Turbine booth at PAX, Jeffrey Steefel, the Executive Producer, gave me an in depth tour of the new Lord of the Rings expansion, the Mines of Moria. Unfortunately, the Balrog was out running errands, but we did get an in depth look at his home in the deep places of the world. He does promise that there will be an encounter with the Balrog at some point. The game, continuing on with its Book XIV occurs after the Fellowship has passed through the Mines. The dwarves are now trying to repopulate their old capital and it's up to the players to help them."
