    Oooooh I am so excited! I woke up this morning and found some awesome news from SSG! I guess they appeared at Indy's GenCon (which I am not too familiar with), but announced 2 things in the works! 1. A NEW RACE! The Stout Axe Dwarves! (yippee for us dwarf lovers!) Complete with new starting area! 2. RACE CHANGES! If I am reading things correctly, you will be able to pay to switch your character's race! Articles here: Massively Overpowered Reddit Lotro Players (A good video with more detail...) I am thrilled to see these, on top of the upcoming expansion (Minas Morgul!!!) I made a different post about that they are working on. I'm curious as to how they will spin the lore of things, since it doesn't quite match up to Tolkein's works on the surface, but I'm still anxious and excited! I can't help but wonder if A) they will finally have female dwarves and B) if it will be a leveled character upon creation (like the death knight of WoW). Oh the possibilities! What do you guys think?

    Hello, and Happy August Everybody! “It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.” - J.R.R. Tolkien Time goes by so fast, yet here we are again with a new month. June and July kinda got wrapped up together as one with the summer business hitting everyone. But if I am not mistaken, based on the previous threads, we should be all just about level 30 or so. While we are wrapping up our group content for that level, it is also time to take a look at the next stage of our journey: Evendim and the Trollshaws and our push towards level 40! There is some really rich history in Evendim, and as I understand it the zone was revamped from my earlier playing days and has a nice leveling tempo. It was the heart of the Kingdom of Arnor established by Elendil, and the Dunedain have attempted to honor their heritage here since then. It is rich with history and ancient ruins, and has beautiful scenery. Beware though, it can get tedious swimming across the lake (which you have to do a few times while questing). As for the Trollshaws, it is a hilly, forested area full of various animals and enemies, with a few elves scattered about. It was here that Thorin's company (including Bilbo Baggins) encountered the Trolls and were nearly eaten (squashed into jelly haha). But Gandalf and Bilbo managed to stall the trolls until dawn when the emerging sunlight turned the trolls to stone. You can actually visit those stone trolls, as @Elisel, @Skywolven and I did many, many months ago! (Credit @Skywolven for this photo!) These two zones can get us to level 40, though the pace we decide to take is up for debate. With people's schedules and division interests, we may decide to push to 35 this month and 40 by the end of September. Or, if you get in a roll, we can do all 10 levels in one month. It is up to the group as a whole. As for group content, I know that Annuminas (the heart of Evendim) is a largely fellowship-oriented challenge. I believe there is a story/quest here regarding Aragorn that I've never done before, though I'd like to try it out. I am sure @Daizey and @Elisel have more information about it should we decide to pursue it. It is also possible (I can't remember) that one or both of these zones are not available to f2p accounts. However, as you leveled you were earning Lotro points (deeds for killing x amount of a certain type of enemy, etc). These points can be used to unlock zones (called quest packs I think in the store), making it 'possible' to play the whole game without spending money. Be aware of that possibility as we move forward, as we are leaving the 'free' zones behind. Taggin the notification list: @Tyrtaeus @RhemaTom @Jae Onasi @Telana @Chelly @Lagerfueled @Vorn @Elisel @Daizey @Ellenore @Martini @CheekyMonkey66 @Kateywumpus @Malerok @Amrithir @Dalivandrian So there we have it! Another month of our fellowship's journey! If anyone needs help, please reach out on these forums. Lotro is more fun with friends! "The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say."

    We'd love to have you @Daizey! And I think summer has had most of us busy as bees lol. But hopefully we can all find a time to meet. May I suggest next weekend to start off ideas? (About a week from now or so). Friday the 9th or Saturday the 10th? @Tyrtaeus @RhemaTom @Jae Onasi @Telana @Chelly @Lagerfueled @Vorn @Elisel @Daizey @Ellenore @Martini @CheekyMonkey66 @Kateywumpus @Malerok @Amrithir @Dalivandrian

    PoTD is not that amazing for fun as it is amazing for leveling. It's great fast leveling for those who want to level a DPS class without XP buffs, as queue is super fast. Also there is a minor story background that I think it's great, and some cosmetic rewards that can be pretty fun too.

    *Aeitheric energy begins to pool in the center of the room. Harsh winds and crackling lightning begin to be drawn to the event horizon of a small sphere of energy that formed in the center. A thundering crash echoed in the chamber as a small crater was formed under the energies coalescing in the room. A shadow came into existence where the energy was funneled through and stood tall as it emanated from the crater. Smoke filled the room for a few moments obscuring all insight. Coughing echoed the room...* (Whispers: Stupid teleport spell..) *Clears throat and smiles* Hello my fellow Eorzeans! Allow me to welcome you to the wonderful world of Final Fantasy XIV. The event is a simple get together to figure out our Free Companies Role in the world of Eorzea as well as try to figure something out about your character. For this event you will have a little bit of Homework! Try to think of one idea for the Free Company and one idea for your character. An example would be something like: For the FC we could be Aetheric Researchers! and for my character she likes sweet foods but hates sour foods! It doesn't have to be complex or well thought out just a simple thing that you personally would like to RP. We will meet up at the FC House as well as on discord to discuss these topics in full on Tuesday the 6th 2019 at 8:00 PM EST to 9:00 PM EST If you don't like to talk over discord that's fine you can replay via the in game chat, but I have a feeling we will be doing most of the discussion on discord. With this I take my leave! *In an instant the room is filled with another loud crash and smoke enveloped the area. The stranger was gone...but if one looked at their surroundings they would see the door was open ever so slightly.*
