We value your feedback and would appreciate if you took a moment to do that.
There is a TON of information in this episode.
If you are a new player, or a returning player coming back for the welcome back weekend…welcome back! You can find all the info you need about the special offers for Siege of Mirkwood here.
If you haven’t gotten a chance to see the “Lieutenant of Dol Goldur” trailer for Siege of Mirkwood, check it out here.
Orion details his work on the ‘Moments of Inspiration’ in his blog, found here.
Special thanks to Jerry over at DDOCast for digging up this piece on the ongoing Turbine/Atari lawsuit. It is a court document, framed certainly from a Turbine centric bias, that explains the whole dilemma.
If you want to catch up on your Zombie Columbus (dev diaries, that is), you can find one on Rewards in Skirmishes here, and one on Accessability of Skirmishes here.
Many special thanks to Hayoo for joining us! Both Alberos and I genuinely enjoyed the discussion. You can see some of Hayoo’s ideas (and spectacular flash maps) at his website, Visions of the Ring. You can also check out his Hall of Fame thread on the Tavern Revelries system right here.
An excellent outline to the Warden class can be found here.
We wish Jaxom92, the blogger at the Middle-Earth Adventurer, the best of luck in Middle-Earth. I will never forget the thrill of excitement when I checked his blog and saw “LOTROCast” for the first time on someone else’s website, only to see that Tony over at MMeOw had also been talking about it. Thank you Jaxom for your contributions and wanderings, and may your journey take you where it will.
If you would like to take a moment to read over Moormur’s screenplay for Kaleidoscope, based on the short story by Ray Bradbury (found in his compendium “The Illustrated Man” if you are interested in seeing the original), you can download the PDF here. The draft has been edited specifically for listeners of LOTROCast, and certain personal information on the writer has been removed. If you are interested in finding out more about the script and author, or would like a ‘normal’ version of the script to pass on to others, please contact Sean, A.K.A. Moormur, at LOTROCast@gmail.com.
Until next week’s LoreCast,
See you in Middle-Earth!
