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. 🙂

Merry Christmas!

Public Service Announcement: When collecting eggs for the Yulefest, beware of foxes in the henhouse.

While I’m enjoying the holiday traditions and time with my family, as well as a beautifully white Christmas and the fact that I *can*, after all, get my netbook to connect to the internet from my aunt’s house where we gather for Christmas, I am wishing for the many friends I have made here both in the game and on the blogs to have a blessed Christmas as well and take joy in the celebration of the Incarnation! What greater gift could there be? But I am also liking this quote of Tolkien’s:

“The Resurrection is the eucatastrophe of the story of the *Incarnation* — This story begins and ends in joy.”
