Spring Festival Begins - MMORPG.com

Turbine has published a new dev journal which details the events of this year's Spring festival in Lord of the Rings Online.

No Admittance Except on Party Business

As a cruel, bitter New England winter ambles reluctantly toward milder days, we denizens of Middle-earth have been preparing for a party of special magnificence. Spring shall soon be sprung, and we are keeping our fingers crossed that the inches of ice allover the sidewalks will indeed be melting away soon! If that isn't good enough reason for a celebration of Spring looming hopefullyon the horizon, I don't know what is. The new hotness: a Hedge Maze with so much green, leafy goodness that we’ll all be thoroughly tired of the color by the time the festival comes to a close this year. My goal is to use this excuse to override my guilt when I inevitably neglect going outdoors during the fairer seasons, and I encourage you to do the same.

I’ve been a rabid fan of the LotRO festivals since the game launched, well before I started working at Turbine. Maybe you can imagine my excitement when I was given the opportunity to take on these events for my first project as a brand new addition to the dev team. After a great deal of flailing around aimlessly with some crazy ideas, a lot of input from some very helpful teammates, and a significant fear that I wouldn’t be able to make any of my goals for this event fall into place, things actually started to magically come together.
