Roosevelts Personal Feelings, and other meaningless banter

Here you get to see my emotional side, hear about my recent trips to the abortion clinic or maybe even come across something you have thought about for a long time, but never had the balls to say.

LOTRO Project

From my Post

In UO, and EQ I strove to roleplay, it was one of my favorite pass times in game. There was a wide open world for me to get into and Roleplay and what helped was that I was not bound to a linear path the whole time and could make up my own story. In new MMO's, I have found that everything gives you a more linear path and it gives you "Our Story" instead of "Your Story". I took this to heart for a long time as a punishment almost, something the evil developers did to take away my fun in game, and make everything more simple. The fact is though, I need to get with the times. The Developers are not taking the roleplaying from me, they are just presenting a new way for you to take in all the information.

Before in MMO's the world had its lore and you were sent to discover it on your own, without any help and quests certainly did not take you where you needed for everything. The way that games put forth information now is just different, they want to give you all the tools you need early on to help you through it all. What I am mainly trying to say (yes I know I am taking my damn time getting to it) is that I am still a roleplayer. In most MMO's out there, I am still given a large open world to Roleplay in, I just choose not to accept the new ways of going about it. Well now I have a new outlook, which I will be testing on LOTRO. From alot of talks I have had today with people about the game, the Roleplaying is some of the best you can come by. My outlook now is to really play a character. I am not just going to wait for other players and friends, to join me before I can roleplay, I am going to make the Roleplaying myself! When I am sent to the shire to investigate something I am going to stop on the way, make camps of a sort and look around, hunt a little, play some lute. When I venture to a orc camp I am going to scout the area, and wait the extra few minutes for dark to hit before I pounce on the attack!

If this project works, and I do plan to post a blog about it, every day that I go through it, I would hope others would follow my example, if it fails, I have lost 15 dollars, which is what? A half a gallon of gas now? Haha!

 

Now I sit here, waiting for the LOTRO download to finish up. It will probably be done by the morning, and from there I will buy an account and be able to play a long while on the first day. Then the next few days will not  be the most fruitful as I have work. If things go well though I will be able to play a long while after wensday as the weekend I am off.

 

Anyone have any advice for me Character creation wise? I made it to level 18 I think before as a captain, this time around im going to try something different, and maybe a bit more exciting. Also any good sites I should check out tonight while I wait around?

I assume from the time on your post that you'll be playing on a US server - and unfortunately I can only comment on the European RP server Laurelin. Where the Shire is a particularly rich source of small out-of-the-way RP experience.

There are several dedicated hobbit kins, some of which focus almost exclusively on RP within the Shire itself. Wander into the various pubs of the Shire of a (European) evening, and you're likely to encounter a small group telling stories and discussing the sudden arrival of so many longshanks with great concern.

The Prancing Pony at Bree remains a hotbed (almost literally) of RP activity, although it seems that as many RPers avoid it like the plaque as those that flock through its doors.

I'd suggest trying a hobbit minstrel, perhaps not the most exciting of gameplay, but a rich seam of grouping and RPing opportunities. And burglars are fun and good for solo play, so I'm told.

If you are on the US servers, Landroval is the "Unofficial" Rp server.  I myself am there in a roleplay guild.  I always find people Roleplaying, and never hesitate to roleplay my character as much as I can.
