LOTROCast: The Lord of the Rings Online Podcast is pleased to announce a contest for all members of the LOTRO Community! You can find LOTROCast online at http://www.lotrocast.com/, on the Zune Marketplace, and on iTunes.
With the release of Siege of Mirkwood, there has never been a better time to experience Middle-earth through Lord of the Rings Online (indeed, if you haven't yet had a chance to pick up SoM, check out what you're missing!). SoM brought with it the conclusion of Moria's epic storyline, the robust new Skirmish System, and, of course, allows you to take the fight right to the Enemy in Mirkwood.
Haven't upgraded yet? LOTROCast is holding an 'upgrade' contest from December 17th to Dec. 31st and, thanks to the good folks at Turbine, may be able to upgrade your experience! We hold two product keys for Siege of Mirkwood and want to give them away. In addition, both of our winners will join us to introduce a future episode of LOTROCast: The Lord of the Rings Online Podcast.
So how do you get a piece of the action?
One of the main themes of LOTROCast: The Lord of the Rings Online Podcast is that of exploring the lands of Middle-earth. Because of this, we are holding a screenshot contest. There are two categories (the winner of each category will win the product key).
Category 1) Locations. We are looking for the best/most creative screenshot of a location in Middle-earth. Perhaps there is a region you particularly love, a favorite fishing spot, or a little nook that you like to park at for a few minutes just to enjoy the view. Whatever it is, we want to see it!
Category 2) Characters. We are looking for screenshots of your favorite player or NPC. Whether it's a toon with a particularly creative outfit, or maybe it's a boss that you have particularly fond memories of defeating. Maybe it's just a quest-giver who sent you out on a particularly enjoyable part of your journey. Regardless of your choice, we'd love to see it!
In order to enter, send us an email at LOTROCast@gmail.com (we will NOT spam you) with the subject line "Siege of Mirkwood Contest," the picture saved as an attachment between Dec. 17th Dec. 31st, and the following information:
Preferred (in-game) Name:
Server (if you want):
A sentence of two about WHY this picture is so meaningful:
Please send a separate email for each entry!
We will announce the winners on New Years Day and will compile all the submissions into a nice video slide-show to put on our YouTube channel. you are allowed to submit as many screenshots in as many categories as you want as long as each screenshot is in it's own email. Since the prizes for both categories are the same, you can only win one but submitting to both can up your chances of winning!
From December 17th to December 31st, send us an email at LOTROCast@gmail.com with a screenshot that fits one of the two categories with the required information and wait until January 1st to see if you'll be ringing in the New Year in Mirkwood! In addition, our winners will join Alberos and Moormur to introduce a future episode of LOTROCast: The Lord of the Rings Online Podcast. To see some of the great changes that came with Siege of Mirkwood, head here! Remember, because we are giving away SoM keys, you must already have Shadows of Angmar and Mines of Moria. If you don't yet, you can head over to the Turbine Store and pick them up. This is NOT the Adventurer's Pack. I've learned through writing this up that I can't spell "category" very well.
If you have any questions about the contest, don't hesitate to drop us a line at LOTROCast@gmail.com.
