Update 7 has finally hit Bullroarer, and Sapience posted the notes today.  In addition to the notes, a couple other posts of note were regarding the Eyes and Guard tavern which allows for the quick ability to create testing characters of all ability ranges.  Check out the following posts on its availability and guide.  As for the notes themselves, there are lots of bug fixes and what not, but a few things jumped out at me:

  • Of course the Moria and Fornost revamps and the new skirmish are very cool
  • I’m VERY curious and somewhat scared by these new “Star-lit Crystals” for your legendary items.

The Lay of Leithian tells the story of Beren, a mortal Man of the First Age, who espied Lúthien, daughter of an Elven-king, dancing among the hemlock in the twilight. Her own sweet song was returned by the nightingales that surrounded her. Beren’s heart was at once smitten with love for her, and not knowing her name he called out to her “Tinúviel! Tinúviel!”; that is, daughter of twilightnightingale, a songbird of great poetical and mythological significance both in the Primary World as well as in Middle-earth, it seems. The nightingale is so named because of its beautiful song, and because it is one of the few birds to sing at night; it’s very name means “night singer”. But what of the bright day? The day belongs to the lark, a bird with one of the most renowned day-time songs. Larks are frequently referred to in poetry and mythology, again both in the Primary World and in Middle-earth, and are asssociated with dawn (both of the day and of the spirit) and with lovers. Compare Shakespeare’s Sonnet 29, “the lark at break of day arising/From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven’s gate” with this passage from The Silmarillion: “Keen, heart-piercing was [Lúthien's] song as the song of the lark that rises from the gates of night and pours its voice among the dying stars, seeing the sun behind the walls of the world”.
