  • Exploring Middle-earth: Archet

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with another installment of the series, Exploring Middle-earth. Archet is today's destination...

    The lack of any real authority and the peaceful nature of Archet's people have recently drawn the attentions of a band of brigands known as the Blackwolds, though rumour has it that the Blackwolds have much darker goals than terrifying common folk and farmers. To counter this threat, a retired sellsword by the name of Captain Brackenbrook has begun organizing the townsfolk into a makeshift garrison to repel the advances of the brigands.

  • Transcripts Available

    Stratics has posted the transcripts from their House of Commons chat with the devlopers of Lord of the Rings Online.

    Sprite - *Crowser* What is your estimated time frame til an open beta will occur?
    LOTRO_Patience - We expect to be starting open beta fairly "soon," which of course is a relative term :D

    Sprite - *Alkales* : Is Turbine planning on doing anything to make moral unique, rather then just a word substitute for hit points? For example: certain areas like the old forest decrease your moral simply because you're in the area, or perhaps depending on what type foe your facing in combat.

  • Adventure Area: The Sands of Menechtarun

    The official site for Dungeons and Dragons Online has been updated with a look at a new area that will be open in Modle 3. This area is a vast desert that sprawls across the western reaches of Xen'drik.

    Menechtarun
    The Menechtarun is a vast desert that sprawls across the western reaches of Xen'drik. In ancient times, the Menechtarun was ruled by a tyrannical Wizard-King and his demonic servants. Today, these lands are home to rugged settlers, barbaric gnoll tribes and a sect of fanatical drow and scorrow called the Vulkoorim, or the "Chosen of Vulkoor." The Wizard-King himself is long dead, but his ageless servants have flourished, giving rise to another name for this region -- the Demon Sands.
