Is it just me or are these wood-trolls getting scarier the further south we go?
A fundraising page for Rick Heaton
Hey guys! I know I’ve pushed this before, but we’re coming down the home stretch.
It would be super cool if y’all donated. Think about it, there are 81 of you following this blog. If each of you donates $5, that’s $405 to a great cause! And if each of you donates $25? That’s $2,025!! Think of all the good that could do!
There is some really neat in game swag to be gotten, too, so you aren’t doing this for free! Cloaks, steeds, titles, pets, a chance to snag some tp…plus more!
It only takes a few seconds to donate, and the more we raise, the more cool prizes we get, and the more money goes to a great charity for kids in need.
Even if you can’t donate, signal boost this. If we reach the $100,000 goal, think of how much of a HUGE difference that could make! The LotRO Community is one of the nicest, more caring communities I’ve ever been proud to be a part of. Lets show everyone else why that is.
You know what makes sad about LOTRO? When U15 comes out, we’ll have most of Gondor and that will be awesome, but after that, the only big area that’s left to go in the story line is Mordor, and it’s not like players would have much to do with it. Sure, there could be some session plays and all where you could play as Frodo or Sam, and you could be part of that huge battle where Aragorn and the army of the dead kicks ass (that might be part of U15, I can’t remember), but that would be it.
Will they take you back to the Shire with the hobbits to take it back from Saruman? Or would we just have nothing left to do?
there are still other areas of Middle Earth (DALE) which still need filling in, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the areas from the Hobbit will be filled in afterwards. Not that I have any facts to back this up, just guessing xD and there was definitely stuff going on there during the LotR plot (mentioned in the Council of Elrond and probably other places too)
OH MY GOD I NEVER KNEW THERE WAS A LITTLE PLAYGROUND IN DUNLAND THIS IS SO GOING ON THE GILDED MAP OH GOSH IT CUTE LOOK AT IT
Floating over the Red Hornpass :D Goat powerzz
a sword leaves you exposed to the very bones of war. you can maim, injure, kill, but you cannot turn your back and run. they’re deadly, to both you and your enemy. only one of you will leave this fight alive. there is no middle ground, nobody draws, nobody bows graciously and admits defeat, unless they’re dead and cold and on the ground with a bloodied smile etched onto an ashen face. in short: it’s a gamble, every time.
a shield protects. it guards you from your enemy, withstands relentless pressure, keeps you safe. keeps others safe. there is no win or die, you can retreat with honour, and with your life. you can breathe, you can take on the enemy, you can overpower them with sheer will, and brute strength. you’re in charge of the fight, you get to decide the playing field. and if you play your cards right, you know exactly what the outcome will be.
