There and Back Again

Filed under: Geek Stuff — britinla @ 7:25 am

After nearly four years playing Everquest 2 I have left the world of Norrath, for a while at least. With a couple of my friends from EQ2 I have started playing Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO). We wanted to explore a new world and start with a fresh game. Granted that this world is both new and familiar; I know that heading East from the shire will bring me to the Brandywine and that from there I can enter the sinister Old Forest. In Bree I know to head to The Prancing Pony. It is no surprise that in that tavern there is a mysterious ranger called Strider.

The game has a wonderful visual appeal, Rivendell is as beautiful as one expects, and the Barrow Downs and Old Forest as chilling and un-nerving as you fear. There is still much about the game that is new and unfamiliar and there is a real pleasure when you don’t know what adventures lie down the road.

Here is my dwarf looking down over Bree


Here he is in Rivendell




  1. Great visual appeal indeed! It looks fabulous.

    Why a dwarf and not an elf?

    • I did create an elf first. However, I am enjoying the dwarf more. He can heal or do damage, which works well with my friends. The dwarf is therefore my main, having reached level 28. The elven Loremaster lags behind in his teens.
