  • The best gathering this side of the Prancing Pony...

    Our friends at LotRO Source have done a fantastic job of putting together this year's Lord of the Rings Online Gathering, happening RIGHT NOW in Providence, RI! The devs are very excited about taking LotRO into closed testing earlier this week, and yea, that's exciting... but so is the fact that a brace of beautifully crafted Middle Earth weapon replicas are up for grabs as door prizes behind the "No Touchie" sign.

    Ten Ton Hammer is sponsoring the Hospitality Suite, so yours truly is on hand to make sure they drink all the alcoh... er, Diet Pepsi. I'll have plenty of news from the event when things ramp up tomorrow but why not check out Saturday's live audio / video feed direct from the Lord of the Rings Online Gathering instead?!

  • It might look just like this...or nothing like it.
    Turbine has posted some new Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar concept art on the official site.

    " These are two of several styles of armor found in LOTRO, as worn by a Man of Eriador. (In the game, players can wear armor designs from another race, if they so choose. Hobbits, being peaceful folk, have not developed an armor style of their own.) However, armor takes skill to wear effectively, and only certain classes will have the appropriate skills for some armor-types. "

  • Pictures that won't look anything like the final product.
    Turbine has posted some Lord of the Rings Online concept art for you viewing pleasure. The picture today is what that girl you met last night looks like when you sober up, otherwise known as the Gothorog. Elijah Wood was too busy eating second breakfast to speak to us, but his agent was kind enough to tell us:

    " In the early days of Angmar, the Witch-king sent forces North to "collect" the remnants of an evil race that was long believed destroyed, but which Sauron's far-seeing eye spied in the ruins of the Northern Waste. These ancient creatures were few in number but great in strength; of Troll-kind but far more cunning, and exceedingly cruel. The name given them was Gorthorog. "
