Do I look like a Captain yet?

Captain Linett has reached level 23, and I am enjoying her new journey to this point. But what do all those new skills and things matter compared to making sure her wardrobe survived the career change? One of the first things I did with the new Landy Linett was to write down the pieces of all her favorite outfits on Nimrodel, and then attempt to recreate them on Landy. Turns out that I must’ve never picked up the Snow Dusted Boots and Gloves on Landroval as I thought I had, nor the Elven Cloth Jacket – all elements I used in Linett’s “Ranger” outfit on Nimrodel. So that outfit, which you see here with the green pants and yellow vest, is still in progress. But I was able to recreate passable versions of most of the others, and here they are! The only thing is…here’s my captain…looking very much like a LM. 🙂 Well, let’s just presume that though she changed careers, she still knows her lore and is a fine scholar! Wait…she’s actually an Explorer…oh, the mounds of crafting mats my alts have been getting in the mail this week…

Emergency Fun

One of the sillier moments I’ve experienced in the beta this far – and one of the first at which I thought “Oh I can’t wait for NDA to be lifted so I can share these screenshots!” – was the Emergency Party in the 21st Hall. I suppose in theory it was for stress testing, but my computer at least failed to be terribly stressed about it (and I routinely crash during Ales and Tales, so…)

We (at least those who’d copied over characters high enough to enter Moria) responded to a world broadcast alerting us to an “Emergency Party for Emergency Fun” to be held in the 21st Hall asap. Linett, still decked out in the summer festival dress she’d traveled in from Nimrodel to Bullroarer, made her way there while Mireleth, whom I’d been leveling on Bullroarer for feedback on the level 20-30 range, took a well-earned break.

As people arrived there was a bit of music going on, and Linett showed off her dance moves since she never gets to do that at Ales and Tales.

It was a well attended party for being so Emergency!

Is this what all the fashionable denizens of Middle-earth are wearing now?

So today Linett took a break from all that exhausting questing to do some clothes-shopping on the auction hall. Never fond of hauberks or robes, and not finding any nice dresses for sale (that she doesn’t already have in her wardrobe), she decided on a little number called “Fancy Shirt and Pants.” Fancy Pants is right…Here’s the new outfit:

Oh my. That’ll strain the eyes, won’t it? I feel like I’ve wandered out of Moria into the 70’s…Time for some Dwarven Disco…
