My Little LotRO, My Little LotRO

When I mentioned to various #twitterponies that LotRO was having a "Galloping Gala," I apparently knocked down the last bit of resistance they had to joining the game. Suddenly half of the core players are installing LotRO and creating characters! XD

Well, that suits me fine. :) I'm always happy to have company. But I didn't realize I was going to be such a trendsetter. XD

However, these are casual players, not Tolkien nerds, so I couldn't really just recommend that they sign up with the Valar Guild. Instead I started a My Little Pony-themed kinship with one of my lowbie alts. I mean, really, why not, right? ;)

Of all my characters, really Lachwen should be in the new kinship, seeing as how she's basically "Rainbow Dash as a LotRO character." But I already pulled one alt out of the Valar Guild to beef up Celestia's Finest and don't really want to do any more of that.

I have no idea how long these new players will last-- people who join on a whim often leave on a whim as well-- but I certainly hope a few folks like it and want to stay. :)

Have you seen that new game that came out, Tera? Any idea if it is any good?

No idea, I haven't heard of it. (Or if I have, I forgot!)

Looks like a Rift clone with a few changes, and furries as a possible race (though apparently the females of the race are human-ish and only the males are anthropomorphic). At $60+ though plus a sub fee... not sure if want.

Eh, that's okay. I'm a LotR fan, not an MMO fan. :)

I didn't play on the Tera beta-testing, but I've heard of the Popori and Elin. Still, the race that impresses me most design-wise are the Aman: beefy reptilian warriors!

heh, I'll check them out if there're on landroval. I have a lowbie toon not in the kin as well, if it helps to have him help the kin grow. I could use more friends.

They are, and it would. We need a few more characters for the kinship to be "solid". :) Watch for Rufaniel signing on.

For some reason I find this hilarious! :3

As you know some time back I signed up and spent some time playing. What I found was that my knowledge of Tolkien was too old and unused to catch many of the clues needed to successfully and enjoyable play the game. This was disappointing to me but also underscores what a well thought out game environment it was. When my subscription runs out I'll be out of the game but I consider it money well spent for the experience I did have in the land of LotRO.

Well if you fancy a group of super-casual players to join up with, I just happen to know a young guild looking for recruits. ;)
