Linett’s New Career

Dilemma: My Landroval LM, Lennidhren, has long now surpassed my original LM on Nimrodel, Linett, as my main. The Lonely Mountain Band has kept me so active on Landroval that I have sadly neglected Linett, who now languishes at 65 on Nimrodel.

Recently, Locney was looking for a surname for his minstrel Thyn on Landroval. When Loc mentioned that he’s a man of Bree – Linett’s hometown – I suggested Redfern as a fine Breelander surname, and so Thyn became Linett’s ne’er-do-well cousin. But with Thyn on one server and Linett on another, family reunions would be tricky. I thought about just transferring Linett to Landroval, since I never play her on Nimrodel now. But it’s pricey…and I’m not crazy about having two of the same class on the same server. I have a feeling that transferring my 65 LM to Landroval would mean she’d still never see playtime. And my alts on Nimrodel would lose access to Linett’s lovely home in Falathlorn…though of course that may not matter much, what with the “not seeing playtime” thing.

Solution: It’s time for Linett’s career to take a new direction. On Landroval I have one of every class save Captain and Guardian: Apparently I am not so into the heavy armour, hm? Well, make that every class save Guardian. After all these years working as a researcher in the Scholar’s Enclave of Duillond (that’s where she met Lennidhren, by the way), Linett has become a Captain. What she’s a captain *of* is yet to be discovered, but she seems to be enjoying getting away from the library enough to indulge in a whole lot of shouting. Meanwhile, if she does get the urge to head back to the books…her job on Nimrodel remains that of a lore-master. While this re-roll may have been inspired by Locney, it is not so to the extent of deleting a high level character to make way for the new class. 🙂

So Linett has gone from this:

Nimrodel Lore-master

To this:

Landroval Captain

I’m not entirely sure I got the right head-shape on the new character, but other than that I think she came out looking like the same person. 🙂

Linett on MME!

Well, it’s been more than half a year since my last blog post… /shame! Like so many of the blogging community at my.lotro, I’ve been disheartened by all that is broken there. That combined with a very busy school year and the launch in August of the Ales and Tales Podcast – well, blogging (apart from podcast show notes) has fallen low on my to-do list. Anyway, I’m giving the new MME blogs a try now.

So, how about a status update? Since the last time I blogged…
– Linett has gone into retirement, sort of, at 65 on Nimrodel, because I’ve been keeping so busy with the Lonely Mountain Band on Landroval. I don’t think I’ll change the blog’s name to Lennidhren’s Lore though. I’m quite attached to Linett even if I don’t play her now…
– Linett has, however, taken on a new career…as a Jedi Sage in SWTOR.
– The Ales and Tales Podcast is up to 21 episodes now! And we’ve recorded 29, just have the editing still to do on 8 of them.
– I’ve still got a LOTRO Hat Knitting project in mind…to recreate hats from the game in knitted form, complete with progress updates on the blog and hopefully writing up the patterns here too. But alas! I’ve got so much other knitting in progress right now – gloves for my sister, a hat for my mom, several pairs of socks, a sweater I REALLY want to get finished so I can wear it while it’s still cold out – that I haven’t found time yet to start on those hats. However, if you see a LOTRO hat you’d particularly like me to knit, comment with a picture! It might just inspire me to get this project started!
