Episode 008: Dev Interview - Berephon

Its episode time again! As usual, you can find the latest episode on iTunes, the Zune Marketplace, and right here, direct downloaded from the sidebar to the right. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about LOTROCast, feel free to email us at LOTROCast@gmail.com.

This episode is another long one, clocking in at just over 50 minutes. I didn't set out to make it that long, but time has a way of getting away from you and before I know it I had a big episode on my hands. I feel it is 50 minutes of good content, though. In this episode we interview Johathan ‘Berephon’ Rudder, a member of the LOTRO Team in charge of lore, names, copy editing, and all sorts of behind the scenes stuff. In addition, we introduce a new segment called the LOTRO Workbench, hosted by Alberos from the Arkenstone server. PLEASE let us know what you think about the new segment, if you would like to see more similar segments, etc.

Turbine is hosting a stress test of the Bullroarer server on Thursday, May 14th. Devs will be in-game to interact with and prizes will be given out during the event. More information can be found here.

You can find more info about the Gray Council of Arnor’s birthday bash, check out the thread on the official forums here.

Make sure you take some time and view Raymiond’s film “To Defend and Uphold.” You can find more information on the forums here.

The combat photos found here are beyond breathtaking. The eye of the dead pale-folk in the bottom right corner of one of the second sec of pictures is just creepy….

Johanthan ‘Berephon’ Rudder is an accomplished author. His books have been well received and reviewed by readers. You can find more information about the books here.

You can find My.Lotro here and of course, you can follow my page here. Make sure you scroll down and check out the latest adventures of Coco the Chicken.

You can find the 'hidden nuggets' thread right here. If you find your own easter egg, feel free to add it!

In the next episode, I am looking to finish the series I began with episode 007 and talk about what ‘hardcore’ raiders get out of the game. Stay tuned for that in two weeks!

Until then, see you in Middle-Earth,
