Mordor

"Mordor. The one place in Middle-earth we don't want to see any closer, and the one place we're trying to get to. It's just where we can't get." -Samwise Gamgee

Except, in LotRO at least, that soon won't be the case.

Same 'Ol Rhetoric

SSG announced the other day some up-coming changes in DDO.  And, as usual, the forum-populace goes ballistic.

LotRO's 10th Anniversary Scavenger Hunt

This year marks the 10th Anniversary of LotRO (you know, SSG's [formerly "Turbine's"] "other" MMORPG).  Apparently, there are supposed to be a few things being done in-game and out-of-game to celebrate.  Once such in-game thing is the Anniversary Scavenger Hunt.  The concept is quite brilliant; the implementation...not so much.

Watching the Watchers

One of my favorite pieces of gear in DDO are the Cannith Boots of Propulsion.  It's one of those items that all my characters get.  And farming for them isn't too bad, though I have had to make several runs to get them, at times.  But this post is not about the boots - they just happen to be the vehicle for the rest of the story...

Inwood, Iowa

Inwood is a city in Lyon County, Iowa, United States. The population was 814 at the 2010 census.  What does this have to do with anything?

You, Again?

I think I have a nemesis.  Isn't that a requirement for a superhero and/or supervillain?  To have a nemesis?  Based on what happened in an EE run of "Bargain of Blood" the other day, I must have one.

Phoenix Rising (Again)

*Cough* *Cough*  Been a little under-the-weather* lately, though that's no excuse for not posting earlier.  Although, it's as good as any, I guess.  But I digress...

Exclusivity Preservation

From February 6th until March 13th, Standing Stone Games (SSG) is giving to any current or new VIP an Alabaster Lioness figurine, similar to the Onyx Panther figurine.  Does this violate Turbine's promise of the Onyx Panther's exclusiveness?

Escaping the Inescapable

So in my last post, I mentioned that Ravenloft is coming.  I then proceeded to mostly talk about the brain-in-a-jar monster.  But that was not going to be the original topic of the post.

Team Solo?

For those of you in a "Star Wars" frame-of-mind, the title of this post has nothing to do with Han (or any of his family).
