Goldenstar did not have a lot of time to play this week. She even missed Dum Time. She did log in a bit for the Spring Festival but not much else. She’s working on a jigsaw puzzle!
Merric didn’t really play at all. He sure has no problem giving Goldenstar grief about puzzles though. At least she actually played LOTRO this week. Am I right?!
Enough with this silly intro that I’m certain very few to no one reads and onto the links of importance!

Raise Your Glass
During the Spring Festival, I’ve been working on Inn League and Ale Association reputation. I recently looted a small reputation accelerator. Will it give more negative reputation as well or just give more positive reputation?
I’d be grateful for any answers to this question
Dear Silvers and Lhoss,
This week I actually got a lot done on my main! I cleared out a couple quests node in The Great River, earning Friend with the Riders of Stangard, and managed to complete a couple of the Isengard 3-mans with sub-optimal groups, completing the Pits with a Rune-Keeper, Minstrel, and Burglar as well as completing Dragnakh with two burglars and a Rune-Keeper. I also completed Dragnakh once while actually managing to live through the last fight, something I hadn’t done in any time I’ve previously run that instance.
I also helped successfully kill the Watcher in the Water with a group of kinnies, many who had never done so before. It was rough going at first, despite us all being level 75, but we kept at it and eventually had a great Sushi feast of dead squid, and got a few people their Savior of Khazad-Dum deeds done. I’ve attached a couple screenshots of our group. Sorry they aren’t very good, it’s hard to get people to pose when they just want to get some phat lootz.
During #dumtime, we worked on the Epic storyline. Got Dumidum caught up, and then finished off the Moria quests including 2.6.8. Which is no longer six-man-able! It is now solo/duo only! Poop to that.
So we split into groups of Dumi/Sodum, Hoppy/Laydedum, and me by myself. Then we raced to the end. Laydedum got booted off a ledge and got the NPC killed. Had to start over. Last place. The tank/mini went angry hands and Overpower and crushed for first place. I got second by default.

I enjoyed your discussion on the last podcast. Later it occurred to me, and I’m just sharing my 2 coppers, that I think it will be a voice over (gandalf’s voice) and the first words in the opening will be “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit”.
Tokien invented the words and then had to invent with what the word meant. In the case of The Hobbit, he literally wrote the phrase “in a whole in the ground there lived a hobbit” while grading exams and later had to invent a hobbit; he came up with Bilbo. Those few words started the whole Hobbit/LOTR cycle. I am just guessing Jackson’s team won’t miss such an iconic opening.
It’s fun to speculate.

This is Pinkfae from Landroval. I am writing to you to make two requests. First, I see you have Secrets of Middle-earth listed as one of the LOTRO podcasts. His podcasts are very good, but very few. Were you aware he has a character in the Lonely Mountain Band? I was wondering if you could try to get him on your show.
Secondly, I noticed yo don’t have a lore-master guide at all. I would love to be a guest blogger and put up a series of guides for the lore-master.

Hello Merric and Goldenstar! I have a question about the legendary items panel that I can’t seem to find the answer to. Hopefully, you will know. On the numbered tabs you click to select your item, some tabs have a green and red dot on either side of the number. What does this mean?
