  1. In case anyone isn't following the latest LOTRO news, you can now attend Aragorn and Arwen's wedding in Minas Tirith! For lower level characters, upon logging in you get a quest option that provides a fast travel to the White City of Gondor, if you'd like to check it out. They said they have content for this event for all levels, so nobody is locked out of it. Here is a link to the update notes: Midsummer Festival
  2. As some of you may (or may not) have heard, the actor Ian Holm, who portrayed Bilbo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, recently passed away at age 88. I am a huge fan of the books, but I also love the movies, so certainly I felt a twinge of sadness and much respect for the actor, and gratitude for his part in the Lord of the Rings world. But I just wanted to share a cool article I found this morning about how players all across Lotro paid tribute to the actor and his character in-game. Stuff like this is always really neat to me, and I know its happened in other games too (like Star Trek and WoW). Anyways, here is the link. RIP Ian Holm!
  3. For those who did not know, they are going to soon be releasing Rohan Housing into the game. It is a premium housing, but looks kind of cool. This transcript also has info on how regular housing will be updated/improved. Thought some of you may want to give it a read. Rohan Housing
  4. Hi there! Our kinship is on the server Landroval. Looking forward to seeing you in game sometime! A bit of a confession though, I've been playing all week, but this afternoon we are headed up the mountains for a mini vacation, so I won't be online over the weekend. Sorry! If you are on before I get back and want to join the kinship, @Jae Onasi, @Daizey, and @Elisel can all invite you if they are available. Hopefully we can get a few more people involved in the poll regarding playtimes and we'll organize a regular, but not too time-consuming, leveling event and we can play together!
  5. Only 4 people have filled out the survey so far. I encourage you to fill it out, even if you are not interested (there is an option for that). It will help to determine what level of activity we should set for this interest group.
  6. I am inconsistent too, especially during summer break. But as a west coaster, those times are not too shabby for me. I play often from 11 to 1 EST time. We can possibly do a weekly, or every two week evening to run around and do stuff.
  7. I am hoping the poll above sheds some light on that topic. What time of offpeak playtimes do you have?
  8. Hello Everyone! Per some discussion in the notification thread, the idea of having some leveling buddies came up as interesting to many folks. A leveling group, as it were. We did something like this last year before I stepped up to the EC, as you can see here. @Amrithir, @Dalivandrian, and myself had a few sessions and for my part I thought it was a lot of fun I think we got to level 30ish if I remember right. This post is to ask whether we should officially start up again with a new/updated fellowship. The ideas behind this concept is simple, and I leave the original plan for this here for those who want to see the original plan but don't want to go through the original post (tl:dr): Skip the spoilers and I will cut to the chase. Original Goals: Explanations: The idea is to have a semi-regular time to log into lotro together and quest/level through the game without causing it to be a huge commitment or time sink. I also don't want anyone to feel obligated to play, this is just for fun for those who like the game and want to keep their toes in it. If we can meet once a month, or once a week, or whatever we decide and play our characters together, it'd be a fun way for the more active people to have guildies to play with, and for the less active people to progress through the game. We can be rather organized (like the original plan) or we can be a little more spontaneous, if people prefer that. So I have added a poll to this thread for you to give your thoughts. If there are other suggestions or ideas, please let me know! I'm very open to doing whatever works for everyone. Tagging Notification List:
  9. I don't know if/how to get mounted combat yet, I have never stepped foot in Rohan just yet. My highest level is 75 and parked just outside of it. I'm also not sure if there is anything else I'd need or be missing out on. A lot depends on whether we have interested players in lotro or not. I guess the expansions of instances and raids too? But I'm not sure whether they would be worth it since not many of us play. Most likely I'll buy the quest packs at 99 lp each, it is so darn cheap! I can always buy the expansions later if I want the extra content, its not like I am overspending that much with the current sale I suppose.
  10. The expansion quests are now on sale for 99 lotro points each if anyone is interested. I am torn between spending the few LP to get the quests, or waiting and buying the whole expansions. I only need Rohan, and I kind of want the big battles and mounted combat stuff. *sigh*
  11. I'd be happy to level up with anyone if we can work out a time. I'm always game for grouping. I have characters from level 1 to level 70 of many ranges. And the free quest packs I posted about in another thread will make leveling so much easier for anyone who didn't have certain content. @Annamika, @step7012 do you want on the notification list then? It will be used not only for events, but for any lotro announcements in the future that players might be interested in (like sales, in-game events, etc).
  12. If you are like me and fairly casual, you may not have dropped a lot of money on the game. For those who don't own the quest packs, here is the message I got on social media from LOTRO/SSG today: "Our free Coupon Code to get quest packs for your account is now available! The code is: LOTROFREEQUESTS, 1/Account, available to redeem through August 31st, 2020. Read more here: LOTRO.com/friendsforever. " The list of all the content they are giving away is in the link, it is quite lengthy! I certainly added some areas to my game I didn't have before. Enjoy!
  13. Hello Everyone! I know many of you may not have LOTRO on your radar right now, and that is okay! We all have other games we are more invested in at the moment. But I wanted to give an update on things here in the interest group now that my responsibilities on the EC have come to an end. First, by way of information, LOTRO is my primary MMO right now. While it is summer and I am not working (I am a teacher) I may have inconsistent hours as I tackle home-improvement projects, but I will be logging in regularly on Landroval for those interested in leveling some characters with some company. I believe there are a few people on Brandywine playing together from time to time as well. Anor (the legendary server) is also available for VIPs and there are a couple of people there last I heard. For myself, I plan to attempt making the RoH kinship on Landroval a bit more stable and active, including potentially recruiting from in-game if possible. This is based off of the interest a few of you expressed in this thread. I would love and appreciate any help in that regard if any of you find yourselves uninterested in our division games at the moment and have a mind to focus on Middle Earth with me. I certainly will not push anyone to participate more than they want to, though. As for the interest group, we have a crafting forum for anyone who may need anything, and we have a PvE forum for events and such. IF we have multiple people on 2 servers we can certainly reorganize this so each server can have a dedicated thread. This is not to segregate for anything negative, but it would help keep down confusion of who is doing what on which server. If only one server becomes the 'main' one, we can keep as is and improve it as need arises. By way of information, I also want to let you know I have purged the membership of the interest group to try and keep it as accurate as possible. Since we are not bound by official RoH protocol, I simply purged those who are not members of the community anymore or who were only applicants but never went through the trial process. I figured using the 'white tags' of that nature could be an easy and fair way to keep things updated. If there is a former member who is active on the forums and wants to continue to play with us then I believe we can allow that, but from what I saw the people I purged had not logged in for a very long time. If anyone has ideas or anything they would like to see happen regarding LOTRO, feel free to speak up. The more the merrier!
  14. Hello everyone! I am back at trying to organize things here in LOTRO and that includes this notification thread. It is fairly old, and many of you may want to remove yourselves from it, or possibly add yourselves to it. I also understand that there are a couple different groups on different servers, so I ask the question of whether we would like different notification lists per server? (i.e. a Landroval list vs an Anor list) Let me know your thoughts below with what you would like to do. I thought about clearing the list and starting from scratch, but I figured I'd leave that up to you guys. If there is no opinion either way, I'll probably reset it for a fresh start since it IS a couple years old. Tagging all members of the interest group at this time to give everyone a chance to voice their opinion:
  15. @Daizey is the kinship named Remnants of Hope? Also, do you have a kin house I can get the details of? I'm afraid I won't be joining this server, but I am pinning a thread with the details of each RoH presence within the game, regardless of server.
