Over Rock and Under Tree

Posted by Jon Wood on Feb 17, 2010  | Comments

Over Rock and Under Tree - Lord of the Rings Online - Lord of the Rings Online Reporter Jason Parnele writes this look at his own return to Turbine's Middle-Earth MMO, recounting some of his experiences.

I mentioned in my last article that I returned to LOTRO not to level as fast as humanly possible or pwn noobs in the Entmoors, but to slow down and enjoy the game. In fact, in my kinship recruitment thread I said I wanted to “immerse myself into Middle-Earth”. My Burglar – at the time of writing this – is level 40 and in no rush to reach the end game.

Yes, let’s be honest and call a fanboi a fanboi. I don’t take offense. I loved the books. And this isn’t a review of the game – it’s my story. In talking to friends and reading forums I found a lot of players who had been considering trying LOTRO and I thought I could share my experience. I’m not writing to promote the game. I may even discourage you from buying the game and save you $20. In which case, just mail me $10 and we’ll call it even.
