Episode 197: Ow When U P

June 9, 2013

Episodes from 2013, Podcast

silvers on a horseThis week is very light on LOTRO news. We’re hoping for big news next week from E3! So we talk about the store sale, gossip about shadowofmordor.com and talk about Doctor Who.

Goldenstar had a great Dum Time riding a horse in Amon Sul and a ugly fashion parade in Bree.  Hobbitmeister was the nicest Hobbit ever and sent me the Spring Festival cosmetics I wasn’t’ able to obtain on my own so I didn’t miss out on them. Thank you!

Merric didn’t do anything :(  <– Slacker

Riddles in the Dark

Riddles in the Dark is a bi-weekly podcast series by Dr. Corey Olsen (The Tolkien Professor), David Kale and Trish Lambert. Discussion will focus on the themes, characters, and events of Middle-earth and lay the groundwork for intelligent speculation about how the book may be translated to film. Each episode will culminate in the hosts making a specific prediction about the upcoming films, to be proven or disproven when the films are finally released.

Ellishul of Lorien:

Dear Merric, Goldenstar, and – of course – Baby Hobbit,

I figured it was about time I sat myself down and write you awesome people a letter of thanks for your entertaining contribution to my Lotro experience. Two years ago, I joined the Lotro community and a kinmate mentioned your podcast over the chat. Curious to see what it was all about, I tuned into one of your episodes and the rest is history. I tune in every week, listening while I quest throughout Middle-Earth – who knows how low my traits would be if I didn’t have this podcast to beat down the boredom of deed grinding! Not only that, the site in general has helped me so much in understanding Lotro over the years, and thus making me a much better player.

Again, thank you so much for everything you do!

sincerely, Ellishûl of Lorien,  (aka Cat, the Elven Tailor http://theelventailor.blogspot.com/)

    I watched Dr Who religiously as a child. I am showing my age but my favourite was Tom Baker. Once he departed I have never really had much interest. Favourite villan – the cybermen.
    Keep up the good work!
