Lotro Once More

I reactivated my Lotro subscription with a view to completing my outstanding book quests in preparation for the forthcoming release of Mines of Moria. Going back to an MMO is a funny experience, a bit like moving back in with your parents after living on your own. On the one hand there is a warm comfortable feeling of home but there are also memories of the boredom that inspired you to move on.

Lotro is pretty quiet these days. I wonder will many return for MoM.

Here's a picture of Throg in snowy Forochel:

Welcome back! :)

Forochel is a great zone. If you're high enough level to quest there, I recommend it. There's lots to do and it's an interesting place too.

I don't think you *have* to complete your epic books to start the ones in the expansion.

Hi Khan, I spent a couple of hours in the game last night, playing solo so I could refresh my memory of the controls. I found the slow pace off putting - I spent most of the time just travelling to the town at the top of the lake in Forochel. Perhaps I need to hook up with kinsmates for some group quests.
