What are these fan club credits that are mentioned? Did they just add the names of fan club members to the credits? Why would they do that?
If you belonged to the Official Lord of the Rings Fan Club, your name went in the fan credits. Supposedly.

The OLOTRFC was run by Decipher, the RPG company. They produced an official magazine and other collectibles. They had the reputation of taking fans' money and running, but they were apparently overwhelmed and, once in the ditch, were never able to dig themselves out. At the time, I was upset that I only ever received one issue of the magazine, but in retrospect I count myself lucky that I got the wristwatch I ordered from them.
