This week we talk about EU Migration service closing, character transfers opened and update 5 coming in the near future.
Fair warning – this show is absolutely riddled with Baby Hobbit interjections. If you are annoyed by adorable sweet little girls, perhaps this is not the show for you. Our Baby Hobbit is part of the family and welcome to join us if she’s awake!
Goldenstar played her burglar with the Monday Dum group going back into Urugarth. The burglar finished one of her class quests. Goldenstar is still in Dunland and is now level 67.
Merric has decided to try the warden again for the Dums group instead of the loremaster. His champion is now level 66 and in Dunland.

Dear Goldenstar and Merric,
I have been following your lovely podcast since just before your 100th show and am absolutely loving it. Since I’m living in the UK, I can’t make it to the live show, but I’ll listen to it either on Monday or Tuesday at work without fail.
I actually started to go back to the first episodes and am currently on number 16 – brilliant stuff (and I just feel like pointing out that listening to a book is not the same as reading).
Keep up the great work, always looking forward to the next episode

Hi Merric & Goldenstar (an Baby Hobbit),
I just wanted to send you a big ‘thank you’ for reading out my player achievement on your podcast last week.
I hadn’t told the rest of my kinship that I’d done it so when you guys read it out I saw a spike in my popularity ratings
You joked about rolling characters on Snowbourn so you can join us on our raids. Go right ahead – you’d both be very welcome.
By the way, if you thought 8-players completing a 12-man raid skirmish was uber then get this…..we completed the Way Of The Smiths raid skirmish with 7-players the other day. Go figure!
Could you please pass my thanks on to Pineleaf for his awesome skirmish guides ? I’m our kin’s skirmish master and the only reason they gave me that title was because I’d read all of his guides and run every skirmish 100 times over. In many ways,our successes are his successes.

Email from Richard:
Just started playing the new Lord of the Rings game “War in the North” – and if you are, which I of course assume you are.., are fans of Tolkien’s world this game is AWESOME!!!!
I have fought my way to Ettenmoors now and the Rivendell part was awesome with maybe 30-40 minutes of great voice acting and information about the ‘parallel quest that Frodo, etc are undertaking”.
I’m playing it in on PC but assume the console ones are good as well.
Would LOVE to get your thoughts on this game in the next podcast – it is, in many ways…what I hoped LOTRO had ended up being when it comes to how areas ‘feel’ (Barrowdowns were outright scary).
Love the podcast,
Richard (on Landroval)

Is there anything new on using Buff Bars? I miss my buff bars! Even now, every time I try it out post-ROI I get the same crashes you were talking about late September.
Just wondering if there is anything new on the subject.
Thx to you both for your time and effort. You’ve really created something special with the CSTM community. Congrats!
Email from Adhrean:
Hey CSTM! Looking forward to the next podcast as always, and just dropping by to say keep up the good work! Personally, I miss round-table discussions and cannot wait for the next one, whatever the topic maybe. How about having a round-table about PVMP,Crafting or something new soon eh? =) Cheers guys.
