Maybe a silly question but one I have been thinking about for quite a while… when replying to blogposts there seems to be the ability to add a little picture (avatar) next to your name… I cant however find out where to find the settings to add one myself.
Could you please tell me how this is done? I dont know if there are other people who are wondering about this so if you got the same question from others maybe a short explanation is a good idea
Year, or two ago you had a roundtable discussions about all the classes in LotRO. I really enjoyed them, and for a new player they were very informative. I was wondering if you could do a new round since lot of time has passed, and pretty much every class has changed a lot! I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only who would appreciate that
Dear Merric and Goldenstar,
I am Prighild Tussletoe, Hobbit guardian, of the Firefoot server, although I might refer to myself as Dundrid, Dwarf Minstrel, of Landroval for the purposes of this email. I want to thank you for the Fellowship Walk. It was a great time and a great cause. I was so looking forward to being there. I made the character, Dundrid, just to be able to attend CSTM events. I was hoping to meet you both personally, but I’m sure you were both very busy with organizing. I imagine you were inundated with /tells. I felt like such a fanboy when I /ooc’ed “where is the CSTM event?” and Goldenstar herself responded. I got giddy. I was the same way when I passed Merric standing on a wagon near Frogmorton, I guess, being the cameraman.
I may not have written to shamelessly fawn over you both, but I had another reason for writing anyways. I wanted to apologize. You see, I was the clappy Dwarf who was AFK while you were trying to take the group photo. I have a newborn puppy and she needed to go out, so I left my character standing there and never realized my mistake until the next day when I saw the lovely picture of all the participants and my butt. I’m mainly writing just to say sorry.
I’m looking forward to the next event (which is tonight) and I promise to behave myself better.
Prighild, AKA Dundrid
Ugh I can’t decide who’s name to have in my greeting. Ok fine…hey CSTM, there, no favoritism. . Having had my real life filled with going out into the woods in search of deer to fill our freezer with, I haven’t been able to play much lotro or listen to one of my favorite podcasts. But now that I am back let the animals of lotro fear, my tailor needs to make armor. I have been catching up on the last few episodes and wanted to say, if you EVER do a show that is a conversation or commentary or just people remotely talking about dr who, count me in! A friend got me into it this year starting with the 2005 series. And I have watched every episode since! I haven’t gone back to the classic series yet, I may do that in this fall. Bit if you do a show and need someone who is a new and half obsessed fan of the show, just let me know! I love the times I talk with the friend who got me into it, we go on for an hour talking about episodes and quoting back and forth at each other. Looking forward to getting home and playing more lotro, I am an altaholic and I need to lvl a LM, a mini, and an RK, not nessesarily in that order. Now go exterminate draigoc.
Dear Goldenstar and Merric,
(it is proper etiquette to address the lady first)
Two weeks ago I had a talk about JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis, their life, their faith and their works in Bergen, Norway. It is about 1,5 hours long and it is in Norwegian. I did record the presentation with my camcorder and I have now made it publicly available from my website. It is in Norwegian, but in case there are any other Norwegian listeners/readers out there that would be interested I wanted to let you know.

Keep up the great work!

In honor of Isengard and our first encounters with the Riders of Rohan, I thought it was a good time to revisit this great blog post from a year ago about how long it would take for the lit beacons to travel to Rohan from Gondor.
Be sure to read the comments – they are the best part.
Anyway, I’ve found this post to be quite fun.

Dear Merric and GS,
I’m writing to vent and perhaps get your opinion on an issue.
A valued kinnie of ours has been banned for two weeks and despite being VIP is getting no refund. His crime? Using the F word in glff by mistake, intending it as a private tell. He immediately apologised but was banned anyway.
My issue with this is that there is a swear filter in game so even if it was intentional, what’s the big deal? The filter is there to protect the innocent!
I feel a two week ban is excessive especially as he will miss the isengard launch.
Any thoughts ?

If I switch crafting such as a woodsman and a yeoman will I lose my farming exp?
