Comments on Expansions...in a song!
While I am as articulate as many others on the forum, I decided to put my general comments on expansions in song form. Here is my little contribution to the expansion commentary...
Expansion Don't Be Lame

Hah, excellent! +repIn the sea without lees standeth the Bird of Hermes.
When all his feathers be from him gone, He standeth still here as a stone.
Here is now both white and red, And all so the stone to quicken the dead
The Bird of Hermes is my name, Eating my wings to make me tame.

I'm sorry you didn't like the song, but saying its about WoW and that I didn't make it are non-sequiturs to the reason I shared it here

To address a previous question, I shared my song as a way to convey my despirate hope that the RoR expansion won't be just a money grab. As has been said numerous times on these forums, RoR (in my humble opinion), charges more and gives less than previous expansions.
Personally, I've gotten a bit jaded when it comes to Turbine's approach to LOTRO. While it once held my full attention, it appears to have devolved into a grindy money grabber that I have fallen out of love with. I had high hopes for RoR and prayed it was going to be a real boost to my desire to play LOTRO, hence the foundation for the song.
While this thread was moved to the "Off-Topic" zone, it still is meant to convey my personal commentary on the RoR expansion, as well as gaming expansion in general. If I disturbed someone's cornflakes by making this post, it certainly was not my intent...but I am free to post here just the same.
For those that enjoyed the song, I appreciate your kind remarks. For those that don't, I can only say that you can't please all the people all the time. Being a parody artist is hard work, but it is my way of doing social commentary on the MMO gaming genre. Sure, I could write pages and pages of opinion in cyberspace or maybe even put my education to use and publish a book on it. That, however, would not make people smile a lot...which is my goal

And if you think it's over priced, don't buy it. I'm not. If you're jaded, hey fine. Join the club. I've been jaded since UO split into PvP and PvE. It's MMORPGs, man. It's not Turbine. I guess people thought because it was Tolkien, it wasn't a business, or was going to be run like a Hobbit farm fresh stand.
Welcome to capitalism. Without which, this game never gets made.

Mhh, is this a true "expansion" issue or more of a "pre-purchase" thing ...
Anyways, not to shabby!
Imagine - if you will - a different take, a reggae lament a la bob marley, perhaps in the style of "I shot the Sheriff".
I bought the expansion,
but I did not get no dungeons.
Oh oh no no oh oh, yeah!
I got the swag because I pre-purchased,
but all it does, it makes my *bleeb* look fat.
I bought the expansion,
but I swear there are no instances!
Oh oh no no oh oh ...
