LOTRO: Middle Earth Air…

23 Oct

Airline of ME

Having fun with running alts through the Haunted Burrow…

Not enough time to play but weekend not too far away…

Wish I could fly today but all work makes for a dull day…

I will get to New Zealand one day, me hopes…

LOTRO: My Feet are Happy as 2 windows of LOTRO are better than 1!

21 Oct

Well my NEWB F2P account huntress Marimere has linked up with Ilcaptanotsu…

‘Will the Krill: You hear that? They’re doing it again!
Bill the Krill: Doing what?
Will the Krill: This.
[starts to dance and laugh frantically]
Bill the Krill: Fascinating. What is it?
Will the Krill: I have no idea.
Bill the Krill: [starts to dance as well] Wow! What’s it for?
Will the Krill: Perhaps it’s a momentary relief from the existential terrors of existence.
Bill the Krill: Oh.
Bill the Krill: What?
Will the Krill: It brings out my happy!’

Happy Feet 2 – quotation!

2 windows of LOTRO fun…

…my first experience of multiboxing in LOTRO…

And as I am doing it unsupported (NO software) , alt tab (am pretty fast with this as lots and lots of excel sheet hopping the last 15 years!), it is still a stop start kinda affair.


Using Ilcaptanotsu as my main, his war herald, Fred, and Marimere following. If needed Marimere can let off a few arrows but is faffy to then follow again…so she just tags along, gets XP and drops and most importantly has tracking skills which DO NOT interfere with follow, so can find those tricky mobs for slayer deeds…well its been a great help for Sickle fly slaying at least… (I imagine slug slaying in the Shire will be sped up as well!)


Looking bleak and bare…graphics on low to help with running the game!


Nice NEWB outfit Marimere

While Neekering (slaying neekers!) I used Marimere as main, drawing weakened mobs to the war heralds coup de Grace, Fred set on agro also took out a few stragglers as well…so for well populated areas this works quite well, alt tab to Captain for extra oomph! Sorted…

more oomphf

This morning my wife’s computer refused to run LOTRO longer than a couple of minutes so I grabbed my Hobbit presents and ran…

Which reminded me of my lucky 1 legged burgler Opopa …not saying having 1 leg is lucky rather he was lucky with his freebies, he already has a 100 mithril coins and then:


1st gift might tome II…nice

Next day, another gift: Might tome III …even nicer!

Would make Opopa the one legged burglar quite mighty if I used them…will hang on to them for now…

Will be taking Opa through the Haunted Burrow again this year, hope to get to lv20 and start getting some new mathom armour…lv20 stuff…

Its good to get free stuff while playing…

‘Will the Krill: I want to be free, Bill.
Bill the Krill: There is no such thing as free, Will.’

So Fall Festival is in effect…time to get running that burrow…why…er why not?

It brings out the happy in me ūüôā

LOTRO: This is the End, of the Fall Festival, I think…

4 Nov


‘This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end’

The Doors – The End

I was unsure of when it would end (Nov 4th…but at what time) so as it was active this morning and there is no way of predicting if I could play tonight so I cashed in my tokens‚Ķ

Would hate to have piles of token in my wallet until next year!

SO what Did I get?

Tsudryt came in 1st place with over 250 tokens…mainly doing the Haunted Burrow for the Bounder’s Bags…

Exchanged for  Bat Horse, Raven Hat, Raven Cloak, Haunted bat Cloak, all the maps, boo emote, and 100 bird seed…only 200 to go in the coming years!


From Casual Stroll to MMOs…best guide out there this year!

Tsuhelm came in second with just over a 100 tokens…

Raven Hat, Raven Cloak, Haunted bat Cloak, all the maps (plus some to sell), and boo emote…

Opopa came in 3rd as he decided get the Burrower Deed  …Opopa the Burrower! (well spelling mistake on borrower!) I ran out of bag room from all the hobbit present stuff that he has been collecting while do nothing but drinking in the Bird n Baby…over  13 GP made (lots n lots of scraps!)…easy life! He had about 80 tokens all told!

Raven Hat, Raven Cloak, Haunted bat Cloak, all the maps, and boo emote…

Tsukuld had about 60 tokens… Out of all my characters Tsukuld was the only one to proudly wear the haunted bat cloak after getting it!

Haunted bat Cloak, all the maps, and boo emote…

This was by far the best Festival experience I have had so far in LOTRO, my first Spring festival was the second best and that was the last festival I had any fun in…(Tsuhelm still uses the Horse with the blue flag on occasionally!)

I also have won lots of masks, signs, picture decorations, a couple of cloaks and last but of course not ‚Äėat all‚Äô least, a certain horse: black and white and a bit on the boney side‚Ķ

I now want all the maps for the Cartographer deed (10TP!) so I try and get the maps even if it is sometimes a painful experience…especially when it interrupts a purple patch of questing and levelling!


‘This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end
It hurts to set you free
But you’ll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die
This is the end’

The Doors – The End


LOTRO: Haunted Burrow Mise En Abyme

31 Oct

LOTRO: Haunted Burrow Mise En Abyme

Mise en abyme

Hope they introduce a House of Mirrors next year!



This is the best painting on the wall of the Haunted Barrow…

I have no idea who it may be?

And some of the others are just horrible…(or at least very childishly bad…)

Another possible idea for next year is to decorate this portion of the Barrow with selected players fan art…

…erm…another competition… maybe restrict that one to the UK! [Only joking!]



‘Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?’
