  • One day til the big day and we have Halloween events popping up all over the place.

    The summer is officially over. It's raining, it's getting colder, and it's getting dark early... The best season for gamers! In old Pagan times they celebrated the holiday of 'Samhain' that signified the end of summer. Nowadays we celebrate this day as 'All Hallows Eve' or 'Halloween'.

    Of course the Spellborn team never misses a party and we have started a cool Halloween competition for you to enjoy. Click here to open the competition page.

    Good luck and have fun!

    You can find the Halloween contest details here.

    Don't forget to tell us what you think about this one in our spiffy new forums!

  • The ArchLord team is pleased to announce their fantastic Halloween event tomorrow evening.

    ArchLord HQ is entering in to the spooky Halloween spirit and has created a special event called The Night of the Walking Dead.

    On Halloween players will find an announcement on the event page. Something mysterious is happening and the wise- men of Chantra sense coming evil. A call will go out to all players to help fight the threat or Chantra will suffer hundreds of years under a plague.

    Three magic brothers are going to terrorize the whole of Chantra. Look for the first sign, scattered pockets of the walking dead. Watch out as they unite to lead an army of the dead. Over the course of the event players will receive different clues about how to find the three brothers.

    We call on all Chantrans to seek out the brothers and slay them before their evil plague can spread across all of Chantra. I look forward to seeing my fellow adventurers on the battlefields.

    All those that take part shall be rewarded for their valiant efforts!

  • Exploring Middle-earth: Brandy Hall

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with another in the series of Exploring Middle-earth. In this edition, we are given a peek at Brandy Hall.

    For nearly 700 years, the warm light from the many windows of Brandy Hall has welcomed visitors crossing the Brandywine River from the west into Buckland. Originally delved and built by Gorhendad Oldbuck, the first Master of the Hall (as the head of the Brandybuck family is called), and greatly expanded over generations, the ancestral home of the Brandybuck family is now formed of many tunnels and rooms occupying the entirety of Buck Hill on the eastern banks of the Brandywine.
