Developer Journal - Lord of the Rings Online -

The official Lord of the Rings Online Website has released a brand new developer journal for you guys to savour and enjoy. Here is a peek:

Anatomy of a Quest

One of our goals for The Lord of the Rings Online is to inject a healthy dose of story into the MMO experience. Turbine has a solid history of providing strong story content for our games, but for LOTRO, we're going a step beyond. In addition to building an epic story that spans much of a character's lifespan, as well as one-off quests that respond to our overall story context, we are including a fair number of quest arcs: series of quests that tell smaller, self-contained stories with a beginning, middle, and end... often concluding with an exciting, instanced encounter.

You can read the whole article on their official website.
