  • Exploring Middle-earth: Esteldín

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with another in the Exploring Middle-earth series.

    Few know the true nature of the Rangers of the North, those seemingly grim and cheerless Men who lead a secretive life in the wilderness of Eriador. Fewer still know of Esteldín, the hidden gathering place of the Rangers, tucked away in the wild, far from the travels of even the most distant wanderers. Esteldín is as secret and mysterious as the Rangers themselves.

  • Creatures of Middle-earth: Lynx, Wolf, and Barghest

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with the next in the series of Creatures of Middle-earth. This article covers the lynx, wolf and barghest.

    In the crags of Nan Amlug, lynx dwell in great numbers. While these mountain cats are mere beasts, with no care for the wars of Men and Orcs, they can still be extremely dangerous. They are able to move about nearly unseen, silently creeping towards their prey, springing upon the unwary with vicious precision. The miners of Othrikar, the dwarf-mines of Nan Amlug, must keep a constant vigil as they journey to and from their tunnels.

  • Escape from Vastin's Castle

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has posted a new developer diary today. This on is by Cardell "Annuvin" Kerr.

    Now for a trek down memory lane.

    When I first rolled over to LOTRO from DDO, I was pretty focused on making sure the games were VERY different. We wanted the LOTRO play cycle to be different (ie: I wanted you to be able to play LOTRO for hours, while DDO's play cycle was typically higher impact, and thus shorter), and I wanted to focus on the protagonist, not the system. If anything, I wanted the system to be informed by the protagonist, since LOTRO is based off of a story, while DDO is based off of a system.

  • Exploring Middle-earth: The Midgewater Marshes

    Just in time for the holidays, the official site for Lord of the Rings Online has gotten a makeover! You can see it for yourself when you check out this week's Exploring Middle-earth...

    As the Great East Road leads out of Bree toward the Weather Hills in eastern Eriador, travelers will become aware of a gradual falling of the land, where rolling hills and pleasant grasslands give way to a formidable flat expanse of treacherous bogs opening away northward from the roadway. This region is known as the Midgewater Marshes, an area difficult to navigate even for the most seasoned adventurers familiar with this land. The ground here is damp and dangerous, in places giving way completely to deep pools of mud and stagnant water.
