A Day at the Races

This weekend features Landroval’s first Spring Racing Carnival. On Friday, qualifier races were held in Gondamon, Duillond, and Michel Delving.

That’s the stage.” In other words – one of our more rugged and obscure Ales and Tales locations, but as beautiful as only the Shire can be!

And as you can see from that picture, with Harperella on vacation, Locney and Lennidhren acted as hosts again. This is fun!

Perhaps I will yet get the writeups done, but don’t count on it…

Also. Is it just April Fools’ Day hallucination, or is the My.LOTRO global feed working again?! I see a new post there today!
