LOTRO: Burning Bras, Embedded Orcs, Edge Of A Crack, Gandalf’s Hat!

31 Jul

Or: screen shots from Wrapping up Moria with RK pt1

In the Flaming Deeps while destroying Orc furnaces

Uh...he looks mean!

Uh…he looks mean!

Scary statue...

Scary statue…

Wrapping up the Flaming Deeps just North of the Crossroads of Ash:

Orks on the Rocks

Tail sticking out!

While completing the Tribute of Light quest in the Second Hall in Nud-melek:

I got to thinking that it was made clear that the sex of dwarves is unknown to all and so I thought it funny that here it was possibly Tsukuld was demonstrating her independence of males:



Tsukuld returning to his male stereotypical dwarvish ways… encountered a certain bridge:

Tis broken of course!

Tis broken of course!

Svanr upset

Svanr took the fall of the great bridge hard…look he is crying!

When Svanr has calmed down about the loss of the bridge he send you off to investigate this side of the chasm:

Cracks edge


The Orcs here are of the Largzurm variety, just how many types of Orcs are there in LOTRO?

LOTS check out the wiki!

Those Ghash-hai orcs we found earlier in the Flaming Deeps would be quite at home here at the edge of the crack!

While digging into Orc types i came across the Brasse’s guide to MORIA which is quite simply stunning

'Must see: The Bridge Shard. While there are many interesting things to see here, this image shows an unusual detail… peer hard and you can just make out what appears to be a grey, pointed hat.'

‘Must see: The Bridge Shard. While there are many interesting things to see here, this image shows an unusual detail… peer hard and you can just make out what appears to be a grey, pointed hat.’ I MUST GO BACK TO SEE THIS MY SELF!

It is a pity that it was last updated in 2010 but what a great site!

Today slept late no LOTRO at ALL!

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies trailer has been released: WATCH IT

I was amazed at the quality of the vid and managed to grab a nice screenshot. The costume detailing is quite simply amazing!

I particularly like this scary guy:


LOTRO: Advance Down Into Sewer!

17 Jul

Tsukuld continued his overdue run through the Water Works…

Today he took on some fungus infected Orcs…hope its not an STD, what do those Orcs get up to?

Anyway after they had been destroyed the strange tactical planning of Dwarves was demonstrated when they advanced to a sewer! Otherwise known as Hulwul-nefekh.


I wouldn’t eat anything you catch in here chappy!

Tsukuld nearing lv62 should really be planning his departure from Moria but is actually really enjoying it!

Hit the Wall in North Downs

7 Mar

Pink Floyd  “The Wall pt2”

“Wrong, Do it again!”
“If you don’t eat yer meat, you can’t have any pudding. How can you
have any pudding if you don’t eat yer meat?”
“You! Yes, you behind the bikesheds, stand still laddy!”

Dyort was all set to take on some evil dwarves in North Downs, Pulling Beards Quest, knew it would be tough, had even run a skirmish to level to 38! Dyort can take down 1 guard at a time… but Torfi Hammerhorn has 2 guards close by him… managed to cleverly drag 1 off to kill it, tried and failed on 2nd guard, was killed.

Now I really want my pudding so I tried again, failed again.

Pink Floyd  “The Wall pt3”

I don’t need no arms around me
And I dont need no drugs to calm me.
I have seen the writing on the wall.
Don’t think I need anything at all.
No! Don’t think I’ll need anything at all.
All in all it was all just bricks in the wall.
All in all you were all just bricks in the wall.


1 [uncountable and countable] a hard block of baked clay used for building walls, houses etc:


3 blocks do not make a wall but I feel blocked from continuing in North Downs:

1 – Fellowship Quests


I cannot solo any of these 😦

2 – Update

Over half an hour updating this morning…

3 – Crash

My wife’s computer has started to refuse to run LOTRO. I need to investigate further, it could be hardware issues.

So I give up on North Downs for now, Dyort will be heading back to Lone Lands. Tsuhelm, slightly pissed as Dyort has just snuck passed him in level will be starting North Downs in the future…

I will lets some time pass first…

Pink Floyd “Time”

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought Id something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
Its good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.
