Roads Goes Ever On - Returning to LotRO

Roads Goes Ever On - Returning to LotRO - Lord of the Rings Online reporter Jason Parmele writes this report on his decision to leave the popular World of Warcraft for Turbine's adaptation of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings franchise.

I'm ashamed to admit this. I'll say it once and then we're going to move past it. I did not read The Lord of the Rings until after seeing Peter Jackson's: The Fellowship of the Ring. I eventually went back to read The Hobbit, The Simillarion, Unfinished Tales and The Children of Húrin. As an addicted MMORPG player and fan of Asheron's Call I was excited when Turbine announced they had purchased the rights to develop Middle-Earth Online, now called Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO). As an early beta tester I was impressed with Turbine's re-creation of Middle-Earth and when I found Gandalf's stone on Weathertop I knew this game would be special. However, it took me nearly three years to rediscover that.
