Linett, Chicken-Friend

If only the game granted titles for the brave players who set out to escort little chickens on their travels across Middle-earth, Linett would now have the title of Chicken-Friend, or something of the sort. Last weekend (my, it takes me forever to write things up during the school year…) she was adventuring out in Enedwaith (more on that momentarily) when kin chat (did I mention Linett joined a kin? At Falathlorn Day a couple of weeks ago, she became a member of the Tinnu uin Galadhrim after visiting Tuiliel’s house with them and then having them over to Linett’s place as well) revealed that our young Jenikki was currently engaged in the series of Chicken play quests at Sandson’s Farm. Upon learning this, it was decided that our feathered friend could do with a skilled escort to see her safely to her next destination. So it was that Jeorl, Tuiliel, and Linett converged upon Evendim, where we found the brave little bird making her way toward Tinnudir.

Not only is Jenikki a quick little chick, she swims amazingly well no matter how waterlogged her feathers may be!

A Beautiful Day in the Falathlorn Neighbourhoods

I think Falathlorn Day might be LOTRO’s first cross-server player created event – or at least the first one since I’ve been taking part in such. By that I mean, not just that players from other servers roll an alt to attend as they do for, e.g., Weatherstock or Ales and Tales, but that the event was designed to take place on any and all servers all at once. Three servers took part in it today, and it tended to be kinship based on each server, with the Rangers of Ithilien hosting parties at three members’ houses on Elendilmir, the Tinnu uin Galadhrim on Nimrodel at the homes of Tuiliel and Linett, and the Lonely Mountain Band on Landroval at our kinhouse, Aerlinnbar. While I wish we had seen more participation from outside of the kinships (although there was a bit more of that before we all started recruiting each other’s cross-server alts…heh. 🙂 ), the parties were a great success, with creative, fun events that varied from house to house enough that even those of us like Gaiagil and I who attended on all three servers did not get bored. So I think the event fulfilled its purpose of showing what can be done in the housing areas and, hopefully, showing that they are important to players!


Gaiagil hosted the first party at her home in Merillant. My Elendilmirian alt, Linise, stopped by the Bird and Baby just this morning to learn how to fish when she heard that Gaiagil planned to give a tour of the best fishing spots in her neighbourhood!

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!

Ooh! Enedwaith! Is that where Grace Redfern went?

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?

Bloggers Gathered ’round the Fire

Thanks to everyone who attended the Spring Blogger Gathering last night! We had a great turnout and, I think, a very profitable and inspiring discussion. I will be writing up a report on the latter in a bit, but first, some visuals. :-) Click for full size pictures, and you can also find the album here.

All that Glitters

Previous chapters in Linett’s backstory, the search for Grace Redfern:

  • Have you seen Grace Redfern?
  • Grace’s Raven
  • Well-met in Bree
  • Shieldmaiden of Rohan

This story falls immediately after “Grace’s Raven,” before the introduction of Pellandir and Arethryth in the subsequent stories.

Vanita says:

Cheesy Hobbit grin FTW!

I’m Vanita, or you can call me Nita. Some folk call me Van, too, but it doesn’t matter much because I don’t generally answer no matter what folks try to call me. The reason is, I’m just so very easily distracted. You can be telling me the most fabulous, interesting story and let a sparrow fly overhead or a fish jump in the creek and that’ll have my full attention for a moment – until the next interesting thing happens. Oh, I don’t mean to be rude. My da taught me not to be rude, and I sure do try. I’m just curious! And I love shiny things. Comes from having a jeweller for a da, I guess. Growing up surrounded by shiny things. Da’s teaching me the trade, now, and I help him at market too. That’s what this story’s about, in fact. Continue reading ‘All that Glitters’

Grace’s Raven

Previous chapters in Linett’s backstory, the search for Grace Redfern:

  • Have you seen Grace Redfern?
  • Well-met in Bree
  • Shieldmaiden of Rohan

This story (along with the one I’ll post next…) falls immediately after “Have You Seen Grace Redfern”, before the introduction of Pellandir and Arethryth in the subsequent stories.

Linett says:

In a book. I found it in a book. My father always told me you could find anything you needed in a book, but I don’t think this is what he had in mind.

The book was my mother’s. Is my mother’s; someday she’ll be back in Bree to read it again, I must believe that. Mum had few books of her own; in our house, the bookshelves (and there are many) are mostly cluttered quite delightfully with all Dad’s books, his schoolbooks and his journals and his tales of far-away. My own room followed a similar pattern as I began to acquire a library of my own, until I ran away to Duillond and eventually relocated my little library to my quarters there. Anyway, Mum was no great reader; the few books she owned tended toward almanacks and atlases, useful things for her scouting. This book was different.
