Most of you may be familiar with this video, but since it’s what I consider a “classic” fan made video and it features Lord of the Rings as its subject matter, how can I not mention it in this series? Today’s film is “Born of Hope” which “…tells the story of the Dúnedain, the Rangers of the North, before the return of the King.”

Long story short:
I’m taking over the basement now that the youngest of my stepkids is out of the house1 and turning it into a space for my computer and my nerd stuff.
Read about the first phase of this project here. Now that I’ve built my desk, I’m devoting the rest of the room to my Star Wars action figure army, lightsaber armoury, role-playing game books and everything else I can’t bring myself to part with. I hesitate to call my stuff a “collection” or to refer to myself as a “collector” because the fact of the matter is, I am a serial offender with regards to the first rule of collecting: Thou shalt not open.2
Yes, I know it affects the “value” of my toys, but I don’t buy them as investments, nor am I counting on them to be the basis for my retirement. Having said that, I don’t play with them like I used to play with my old toys, many of which ended up in pieces, melted or damaged beyond repair, but I do like to swing a lightsaber around every now and then, or chase one of the grandkids around the house with a Republic gunship, the Battlestar Galactica or a Nerf gun.Read the rest of this entry »

Each week we ask you to share your successes in Middle Earth with the rest of the community. Post a comment letting us know what you’ve accomplished this past week.
- Don’t forget to add your character name, what server you play on and, if you like, add your Kinship if you have one.
- Please keep your posts brief. We won’t be able to read full novels of your adventures. At least make it so we can easily sum it up!
- Do not be afraid to post any of your achievements. We don’t care if you just saved Archet or finished up Hytbold. We want to hear from you!
Comments for this thread will be closed after recording as this is a weekly thing. If you missed this week’s cut off, don’t fret! A new thread just like this one will appear next Friday.Read the rest of this entry »

Just when I think I’m done posting for a while because there’s not enough time in the day, I get distracted by this awesome Spring Festival war-steed Caparison that is just begging me to be used in a screenshot. This most outrageous neon-green color has me completely fascinated, so here it is. The dawn gave me just enough time to capture a few worthwhile screenshots of my latest dark and mysterious night elf outfit.

The Bree-lands were little inhabited in the days of the War of the Ring, but they were a special place. The last home of good Men north of Gondor, save the lands where Rangers trod, is a green and pleasant place. It’s myriad lakes and fields, woods and downs, make for one of the more lovely and sprawling zones in LOTRO. It is a land little described in the books. Tolkien said that the land outside of Bree-town and the surrounding villages “was a small country of fields and tamed woodland only a few miles abroad” and so it is wide open for interpretation. The areas west of Bree were not described at all, save for the Road where the four hobbits depart from Bombadil, and Turbine filled in those gaps rather nicely. There are lush, green fields and hills, ancient ruins to tell of its foggy past, all encased in danger; for there are brigands come from the South and evil lurks in the Old Forest so very near. Northwards are more farms yet, active and lively, being encroached upon by invading orcs from the North Downs. Eastwards things seem more familiar: beyond the hamlets of Archet and Combe and Staddle is the Midgewater Marsh, where Strider and the hobbits passed unseen into the Weather Hills and beyond during their escape from Bree. And to the South is the now dangerous Greenway, where ruffians have shut out travel through the vale of Andrath.
