That's interesting. Still don't have time for it, though.

I better not start it. I don't, and won't, have time for it. But usually, I don't have much patience for elaborate games....

Can you get addicted the very first time you use it? :D

Now if they threw in a couple extra hours in a day, I might give them a try. :D

Oh just log in for a few hours, help Dora Bracegirdle deliver some pies around Hobbiton and maybe help the Shirriffs with some postal deliveries round the Shire. How addictive could it be?


:twisted:

That sounds like they're moving to microtransactions. Very slippery slope there...:)

True, but the advantage of Microtransactions is that those who play a lot, pay a lot and those who play a little, pay a little.

Am planning to try, Alatar... I can't imagine paying for it, even a teeny amount, though.

So, I am going to register now... you game to discuss it here? :)

:D

So I am a Lore-Master, Level 16 on the Riddermark server.

This is the character I am focusing on. I started one more (an Elf) when the Riddermark server was down on Meneldor, I think. But I am quite excited about how my Lore-master is progressing.

I can now call on a Bear as my ally. :D

You must be so advanced, I doubt we can be in a fellowship toegther.... :P

Well, yes. And also I'm on a different server, in a different time zone!

So did you start your character in Bree? How far are you along the Epic quest chain?

I started in Bree area, yes. Archet, to be precise.

Not very far long in the epic chain. I've done the Amdir bit in that. Vol.1, I forget which chapter.

I've been focusing on increasing my levels, doing tasks etc. I want to buy a horse, but 4 Golds! Jeez. :P
