Back during SOA through Mria before I took a long break I used to create fun games for the kin or whoever to play while enjoying lotro.
VERALYN'S HAPPY HOUR !
Some of it was hide and seek type games via, Global Chat
" whoever can locate me 1st within the town limits of bree wins 1 gold , or mithril flake or stack or resources, something worth thier time.
Another one was in game Trivial Pursuit.
" who was the original guitar player for pink floyd " or any kind of question from sports to movies etc etc. "
It was started in kin only chat but it was just as much fun to do playerbase wide. The one thing that I got out of it was satisfaction of giving things away. The people who played always had fun and were amazed that I was giving stuff away. Games like these often lack generosity on a playerbase wide scale. Alot fo people help thier kins of course , and this game has alot more generous people than most games out there, but we can do better.
Anyhow I thought i'd share this story as I have recently returned in the hope that others will try and come up with new games to play while enjoying lotro.
