  • Creatures of Middle-earth: Dragon-kind

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

    In the depths of time, the great race of dragons was bred by Morgoth in his dark realm of Angband. These terrible beasts are capable of spewing gouts of flame and crushing stone and metal with little effort. Few survived the fall of Beleriand, and fewer still remain in the Third Age. Smaug the Golden was the greatest of those who fled to Middle-earth, and he was slain by Bard the Bowman, who became King of Dale.

  • Exploring Middle-earth: Stock

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

    Located in the Eastfarthing of the Shire, the village of Stock can be found in a region of swampy, yet fertile, farmland known as the Marish near the convergence of the Stockbrook and Brandywine rivers. Relatively large for a Hobbit village, dwellings in Stock are a bit unusual; many of those who dwell in this region prefer above-ground houses to the traditional Hobbit-holes.

  • Exploring Middle-earth: The Green Dragon Inn

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with another in the Exploring Middle-earth series. This time we learn of the Green Dragon Inn.

    Weary adventurers in the Shire looking for a bit of rest and a tale or two amongst friends would do well to make their way to The Green Dragon Inn in Bywater. This local favorite is well-known for its friendly atmosphere, not to mention the tales of events both far and near, some of which are as large as the great room of The Dragon itself, if the truth of it be told.

  • New Beta Journal Released

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online was updated yesterday with a new player beta journal. This week's addition talks about a crafting festival that was held recently.

    A notice was posted for all to see. It was a call for various skilled folk to get together and put those talents to work! Cooks were needed in large numbers to practice their vocation. I had just the hobbit for that task!

    I quickly made my way to Combe. I was certainly in the mood to cook up something delectable. Upon approaching, I noticed many other people already in the crafting area courtyard. Though the presence of so many people in one place caused a bit of a hiccup for my screen, a couple of clicks later, I had it under control.

  • Characters of Middle-earth: Old Man Willow

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with another addition to the Characters of Middle-earth series.

    Adventurers in the Old Forest, to the east of Buckland and the Shire, know well that very little is what it seems in those darkened woods. Many tell tales of the very trees whispering and moving, hindering the passage of travelers, many of whom become forever lost amongst the forest's shifting paths. Of these dark legends, perhaps there is none more sinister than the tale of a certain ancient willow, with a heart as dark as the forest itself. Old Man Willow, his trunk immense and his branches spreading out like enormous clawed hands, stands along the banks of the Withywindle awaiting the approach of unwary adventurers.
