Ditto. I miss both Bloodtusk and Frostmantle. Even with changing the starter areas, I wish they had left them in just for fun.
Thank goodness that mess is gone! :) I always did think making players wait until level 35 -- and doing the whole run all over Eriador on every character -- was for the birds.
Since I tend not...

In your opinion. Mine is the opposite: The pros far outweigh the cons.
With regard to the articles in the OP, my first thought was "is the person playing the same game?"
I've never farmed TP,...

When my wife, daughter, and I are playing LOTRO together (all in the same room where we can see each others' screens), what we see on each screen is different. If we are running close together at...
I sincerely doubt any process outside users have access to will give an accurate view of server logins and activity. If Turbine doesn't release the numbers themselves, why would they let someone from...

As a Tolkien lore fan myself, I agree with you to a certain extent.
Holding Turbine accountable for their handling of the lore (with the understanding that lore devs don't necessarily have the...

Agreed. The lore-guardians on the dev team (and they are there) need all the support they can get.

It's generally bad form to quote one's self, I know, but I feel the need to correct myself on closer reading of the thread.
I keyed in on the concept of the blood of Westernesse, not on the...

A good team doesn't need the best of the best gear/stats to succeed. I can't speak to raids, but fellowship content certainly does not need min-maxing to defeat.
Stats are important, but skill and...

Westernesse is the Westron name for Numenor, not specifically Cardolan. All Dunedain are descended from the people of Numenor.
The Dunedain are referred to as both "The Men of the West" and "The...
I play both games and enjoy them both. :)
STO's only real weakness is a lack of comparable mission content. STO after three full years does not have as much mission content as LOTRO had at launch....
I enjoy both games quite a bit. LOTRO wins hands down on quest content alone. I've actually been playing STO a little more than LOTRO of late because I've been in a sci-fi mood, but STO's major...
This is one comment that never ceases to confuse me. The reason I group (when I do) is because I want to. I group when I feel like it and solo when I feel like it. Game mechanics do not have to force...

My wife is in the same boat. We've been through all the same procedures (except reinstalling).
My daughter's PC and my PC updated fine (my took a reboot to work). My wife and I both have Vista; my...

I just used the instructions below and my wife's game client finally updated. Unfortunately, now it won't run. It says it can't find the dat files.
The installation only replaced a handful of the...

Instances take far more resources and time to produce. When push comes to shove, the choices seem to be 1) to delay the release of the bulk of the content (quests/epic) until...
Then keep doing what you're doing and keep having fun. :)
My main is level 58 and I still haven't finished all of my legendaries from those levels. I don't enjoy grinding, so, well, I don't do...
By and large, I agree with your sentiments. I live in "today's world", I'd rather play in a fantasy/sci-fi world.
However, I had to pick on this one line (quoted). The first lesson is "write what...

One of my favorite Twainisms is:
"Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint." -- Mark Twain
Working for a health information publisher makes this oh so pertinent. :)
Thanks for the kind words. :)
The original manuscript for this book was actually written sixteen years ago -- as my Master's Thesis. I've been wanting to do something with it for a long time now....
No agent involved. This is a small press publication.
Well I took the plunge and published my first book, both in paperback and for Kindle, and it released this past week. It falls into the realm of literary criticism and is the product of a lot of...
No, I haven't seen much evidence of that. He did however, draw upon his knowledge of languages, myths, and legends as "entwashes" for his own writing. "He did not rewrite the old stories; he gained...
