Player wearing the Cape of Nimloth

Capes were a feature in the Mod, from Public Beta 8 up until Public Beta 19 (inclusive), that allowed the player to wear custom capes to commemorate certain tasks that they have accomplished. These capes would only be visible to players with the Lord of the Rings Mod installed.

The menu for this feature could be found by opening the Middle-earth menu (default press "L") and clicking either button on the left or right of the screen until you came to "Capes". There were three categories of capes, which could be toggled through the button at the very bottom.

Listed below are all the capes as of Public Beta 19, sorted into their three categories as was seen in the Mod. Additionally, information is provided on how you could unlock each one.

As of Public Beta 20, capes were replaced with shields due to a EULA change of Mojang. However, while they are no longer obtainable by players, some NPCs (mostly unit captains) still wear them.

Please note that the images below are from the Mod's files and therefore do not look like they do in-game. Only the part of the image is shown, that can be seen on the player's back.
