Summer in Middle-earth means one thing: Time for fishing! (Well, okay, it also means trading fish for pretty new dresses and horses…but I digress.) So it was that this week’s Ales and Tales convened just north of the Brandywine Bridge on a pleasantly wooded Girdley Island.

So, reading the new Dev Diary on Enedwaith, and this remark:
On the eastern side of the valley rise the foothills of the Misty Mountains, and on the western side, bluffs leading towards the distant lands of Minhiriath. The North-South Road, which becomes the Greenway in Bree-land, passes through this land, leading north and west into the bluffs.
Bold for emphasis. Does this mean I’ll finally be able to figure out what happened to Linett’s mother when she disappeared down the Greenway through Andrath? Or, at least, finally be able to take screenshots in the region where Linett should logically be looking for her. It’s got me somewhat stumped how to continue that storyline when Grace seemed certainly to have disappeared through a gate that a player couldn’t actually pass. Linett can wander and fight her way east as far as Mirkwood yet still can’t get those mean ol’ Andrath brigands to open that gate?
