LOTRO: Ilcapitanotsu & Commedia De Fart!

3 Dec

ILCAPITANO

Interviewer: Here I am with an Ill captain Tsu… from Withywindle server and member of the Family kinship…presumably nothing to do with the murderous cult? I hope you’re feeling better… and his female herald (checks notes)…Fred?, and Huntress guide, Marimere.

Illcaptanotsu: (Standing proudly, chest puffed out, legs spread heroically*, big plumed hat waved energetically, flanked on either side by flag waving herald and bow wielding hunter): Maybe u hear mi? I is… Capitan Spavento della Vall’Infernae e Salvador de los Vírgenes Borrachos (Fred and Marimere eyes roll) also known as Escobombardon e Fanfarone

Marimere (interjects): He does indeed eat a lot of beans…

Illcaptanotsu (flustered):…Il’capi’tano’Tsu,  don’t you make comedy of mi arté, or I stick my foot riaght upya bottom! I ave bigga boots on! I isa not sick…wot stupid man is you…all weak and scrawny like…you a musician or some lessa creature? …The Family kinship, in my umble opinIon is the best thing to ‘appen ever…friendly, fun, ‘elpful and generous ta boot, which I will, as warned apply to ur butt ifa ya don’t show mi respect!

Intervierwer (assuming a fake humble smile and asking with false humility): Of course sir, but prey tell us of your LOTRO Update 15 experiences, a Captain Tsudryt **(looks at FRED, recognition sinking in illuminating his face)…did share his opinions of change in the past… Herald, you know this Captain Tsudyrt**?

Fred: Yes sir, I herald for him as well, he languishes still in Moria, camped out on the Landroval server, he is ready to progress but is waiting for the right time and people…I on the other hand am always on call to aide others and jumped at the chance to aide another Captain Tsu. So here I am in the service of Il capitano…(she waves affectionately at ilcapitano who is obviously, impatiently waiting to become the main focus of the interview again)…he drinks less and thankfully does not have such a fixation for bright orange!

Interviewer (looks over at the leather clad, bow wielding woman behind the captain): and you?

Marimere: I am but a humble huntress, I have joined with the captain to aide in speeding his progress through Middle Earth, initially I was employed as a tracker to hunt down elusive prey but as I know quick routes to far destinations and as I am always willing to share my bag space to carry his excess belongings, I travel light. I normally just follow behind the good captain, and find myself in little peril, unless of course he has been at the beans when I may make myself more active upwind so to speak…

Interviewer (gives a knowing smile and turns back to the impatient foot tapping (and boot wielding!)  captain): so sir can you tell me of your experiences in LOTRO after the recent update 15…?

Ilcapitanotsu: It is sad but tru that many capitano’s di arté are nuttin but chickens dressed as men…all featha no eggs…notta mi! I fighta and I leada men and da women, I is MODerno in mi attitudes to the fairer sex as FRED anda Marimere surely will attesta. I yell my intentiones out to the enemy and I join bodily in battales most mortales and mi fineries doth not conceal mi scares…(shows off most minor of scars…)

Indeed Il capitano is dressed well, no cloak for this man that would conceal his long tunic of navy blue with shiny stars embroidery of silver thread. This tunic over, heavy armour, simply crafted but well-polished and oiled…

Ilcapitanotsu: Wella update fiftin it no affect me much really, no beary types have I encountered, those Beornings I expected to be flooding the fields of Bree, as I am not YET the greatest capitano in Middle Earth the later changes have also not’a affectado mi mucho, the distant lands of Gondor are butt’a like a condor circling soma distant montaña…(looks off into the distance…)

Ilcapitanotsu (Focus back to the interviewer, continuing): Other changes I have not noticed, they chang’d summit about mi banner and I donna use em… now line-a-sight don’t effect it … all about rangé again.

Interviewer: Ok so Update 15 is not really affecting you, can you give us some thoughts about LOTRO generally then?

Ilcapitanotsu: Where to start…wella mi main goal is to earn TP*** cossa mi player(in da Real World!) is now ‘PREMIUM’ again and I must say that Archet is boring as hell and why anyone is expected to want to play LOTRO after spending an hour there is a wonda…I suppose I survived so others must too…

Marimere: Can I please add to this, I recently did the Archet run and as I am based on a completely new account I was amazed at how ungenerous the initial few hours of play are…I mean, 3 bags…really! Lucky I am not into makeup and perfumes…my freebies from LOTRO all pretty useless to be honest took up a bag after a few levels…I binned them all!

Ilcapitanotsu: Yeah yeah…, us veterans should be able to dodge this area for free if you aske mi! But I do like Bree, so mucha a do here. That Mayor hombre sent us on a silly tour de bree, ah notta estupido, I know how use auction house n stuff, but I wasted plenty time crafting  jewelry in crafting hall. Jewels n baubles be important… afta that we all took to Ered Luin and had plenty fun… back to Bree and off killin Orcs was we… now in the Barrow Downs killin wights for Bree rep anna tell ya going well it is…

Interveiwer: Have you had much experience of fellowships?

Ilcapitanotsu: Eh! Ama red blooded hombre anna don’t like that question…I don’t mess with a fellows I likka the ladies, proper higolo I…(Fred whispers into his ear, noticeably red with rage, il capitano calms down)…Oh you mean fellowship grouping, ya? Whirlstorm, a Lore master helpe us outta ina Taradans with lotta killin of broodhunter spids… his over grown legume stalker fing was quite scary…indeed killa brussel sprout springs to mind… cabbage on legs…I like mi ‘repollo’…

Fred and Marimere (in unison, holding their noses and looking sick): WE KNOW!

Ilcapitanotsu:  Same player also has Stormsong, now I got nothing wrong with minstrels they rock and indeed many are more powerful an mi myself…even if they screech and maka lotta noises…now a’capitan needs be noisy in battle too…

Fred and Marimere (in unison, holding their noses and looking sick): WE KNOW!

Ilcapitanotsu (looking oddly at the 2 ladies): Butta need to shout anda screama…(sees their faces) oh ya meana those noises (blushing!)…tis healthy to let loose and indeed in the thick of battle it would be dangerous to be full of such quantities of gases…

Marimere (laughing!): sometimes it is dangerous after you have emptied yourself of those infernal gases!

Interviewer: And what does the future hold for your illustrious self and ladies?

Ilcapitanotsu: Wella more undead to be re-slaughtered in the Barrow Downs, me wanna wrappa that uppa before travelling to yonder Lone Lands and possibly the North Downs… better get moving then, (waves his entourage to depart, bows gracefully and lets out a loud, odorous fart)  Hasta leugo, arrivederci…I bid thee farewell.

Interviewer (taken on a slightly green palor): Bye…

*Truly heroic pose as described in BLACKADDER S3: Sense and Senility

‘M: Yes. The ordinary fellow stands like well… as you do now.
M:  Whereas your hero… stands thus.
(The actors assume a heroic stance – legs spread wide, hips thrust forwards. The Prince follows suit.)
PR: Right. Well, that’s sort of like this…
K:  Excellent, Your Highness. Even more so…
PR: What, oh, like that? (Even wider, standing as if on a ledge. A creak sounds.) What was that noise?
M:  It wasn’t *me*! We are used to standing in this position.
(Another creak.)
PR: It came from over here. (opens a trunk to find Baldrick) Anarchist!
B:  Cleaner!
PR: So you’ve had a wash, that’s no excuse! (starts strangling Baldrick again)
E:  (Enters, amidst the screams) No sir, that is Baldrick spring cleaning.
PR: But he’s, look, he’s got a bomb!
E:  That’s not a *bomb*, sir, that’s a sponge.
PR: Oh yes, so it is. Well, get it out of here at once before it explodes.
(Exit Baldrick, carrying the sponge very gingerly at arm’s length.)’
 
And later:

‘K:  No, no, no, no… Your Royal Highness. What have you forgotten? 
PR: Oh now look, if I stand any more heroically than *this*, I’m in danger of seriously disappointing my future Queen. 
K:  No, no, Your Highness, not the stance… the *roar*.’

Great Series and here is a great blog that has all the scripts: AllBLACKADDERscripts

LOTRO: WEEKEND kinda TP grinding while sitting down!

17 Nov

Ered Luin explored

ERED LUIN wrapped 🙂 Now back to Bree for more TP grinding 🙂

campfire frolics1

Chilling around the campfire

cappy crappy in the fountain

Chilling at the Fountain…

Cappy levitates...fire goes out

Campfire goes out and Ilcaptanotsu…levitates…or has developed jet propulsion!

Family and mommy

Mommy helps out Cappy and Huntress…not needed but was fun, only strange point was I tried and tried to start a conversation but never received a reply? Mommy followed me all the way to the bandit camp and back, twice, helping out by speeding things up, there was no danger really…

Family fun1

A little celebratory dance 🙂

hello hello

Huntress decided to blow some TP on a class skill,: ‘Nock on the Move’, helps to fire off arrows while running about, useful if I could remember to keep moving while firing!

more tp spent on class skills

SO the weekend ended with little progression into the second part of Bree, Barrow Downs not even started 😦

The good news is that I actually enjoyed my too little time in LOTRO and want to get back into GAME…

Look out ME, Tsu is back 🙂

LOTRO: MULTIBOX TP WRAP!

13 Nov

Twice this week so far, and we are only 4 days in, I have managed to actually PLAY LOTRO rather than log in and collect hobbit presents!

MULTI BOX

From my days at UPS this is a horrible wall of boxes, where are the 'T's?

From my days at UPS this is a horrible wall of boxes, where are the ‘T’s?

So Ilcaptanotsu and Marimere have now wrapped up Ered Luin TP grind and are now wandering around Goblin infested Rath Teraig…daunting in that I always miss one site (which one I am unsure of…) and end up doubling over my tracks…wasting time…all but 2 found and META DEED of Ered Luin close to completion, but ran out of time this morning.

So pseudo multi box continues…playing my Hunter in Huntman mode, theoretically to keep things moving but keep having to stop myself from stopping and firing… Captain is in follow mode and his Herald of War, Fred is set to aggressive…So my mauling threesome is tearing through the area: Huntress is lv17, Cappytsu lv19 so working together landscape content is super EASY! I plan to do some skirmishes to see if I can work on some proper 2 player ‘cappy/huntress n Fred’ strategies!

Other than that this weekend back to BREE and wrap up TP stuff there before heading off to scary HARD Shire TP run… MORE CAKEWALK, may even use the park and farm technique so derided by many… i.e. leave chars in slayer deed area and let herald do the mopping up!

THE TP

Both my Cappy and Huntress were started after my VIP ran out so having to spend TP on traits was a slight shock to the system after the easy VIP times…worst and most needed spend were the skill traits earned in the skill tree… unlocking these will be a pain but I will probably do it. My newbie huntress is restricted to 3 bags, currency cap and so many other restrictions being a new account that I am not surprised that NEWBs to LOTRO quickly pack it in… GENEROSITY is not the first word they will be associating with TURBINE …

THE WRAP

I love hummous and hummous wrap sounds great :)

I love hummus and hummus wrap sounds great 🙂

So an easy weekend ahead and 300 TP short of Mirkwood… but lots still to collect and I have yet to start on rep items in my shared folder… 🙂

LOTRO: Ork Log Blok’d Blog

24 Oct

Tsuhelm a LOTRO BLOK!

Having a really frustrating week in RW (work), RW (health) and RW(life well wife!), and that is feeding back into my motivation to play LOTRO…

The fall festival is falling and as I love the haunted burrow it is sucking up the LOTRO time I do get…

And that is dripping down into my blog….which has become a bit blocked…

I have tried throwing chemicals and hot water at the problem…caffeine in hot coffee!

I have used brute force… but only hurt my head.

Now I am just writing…. hope that it doesn’t just add to the blockage!

Blorkage…

Ork bloking my blog
A bloke blogging from York (not as yet…)
Maybe the ork blocked the bog with a log!
Must flog that ork who left log
Whats this, a fog?
Cant tell a frog from a log let alone an ork from a fork.
Lest the ork test my jest…
Zesty pork talk clogging my blog

Still blork’in mad…

Got a Blork’d blog?
Who you gonna call?
Spider-Pig!

Spiderpig lotro

The weekend is almost here… I obviously need it!

So hope to get some good LOTRO gaming in, aim to earn lots of TP, Ilcaptanotsu to wrap up Bree and head off to Ered Luin with my archer multibox, Marimere, in tow…why?…why not!

Have a great weekend fellow bloggers, be careful out there and don’t let the orks log your blog!

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.
[mumbles]
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.

hflotro

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!)

ScreenShot00015

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

ScreenShot00013

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:

Mightyluckyhobbit

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.’

Happy Feet 2 – quotation

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

It brings out the happy in me 🙂
