Greetings and Happy Holidays to everyone! We have a very special 20th episode for you today. Alberos and I sat down with Orion, a Senior Content Designer at Turbine. Many thanks to Orion for taking an hour out of his Chritmas vacation time to chat with us. There is a lot of great information in the interview, which can be found on the Zune Marketplace, iTunes, and can be direct downloaded from the bar to the right once the feed has updated. Orion covers a wide variety of topics, from behind the scenes at the Turbine offices and discussing a lot of the fundamental design decisions in the games to reminding us about the first Rule of Isengard: Don't Talk About Isengard. Find out about the Man Behind the Gorilla and get some insight as to what's in store for LOTRO in the new year.
I suppose here, he's the man in FRONT of the gorrila.
We hope you all enjoy the interview and have a wonderful rest of 2009! LOTROCast is going on a short hiatus until mid-January to give us both a chance to spend some time with our families and ring in the new year, but we will be posting LoreCasts between now and then (plus our contest winner on January 1st! See below for details). If you want something else to tide you over, I would recommend checking out Orion's extensive series of blogs at his my.Lotro.
