First you need to watch the video. It’s ok. I’ll wait.
The only word I have for it is “OMGitsoamazingIcouldscreamLOLwtfbbqchkn!”. What? I made it one word…
Seriously though when Aegthil’s Fool and Beorbrand contacted us with the idea of a Casual Stroll to Mordor video we couldn’t have been more surprised and flattered. We were excited and offered to be a part if we could. Hopefully we didn’t force ourselves into their vision. I honestly I had only requested to voice something but being in the video was super fun. Opdum (who also is in the video) and I were commenting to each other during the filming about all the amazing accents we heard from our director and the other players.
Merric and I didn’t plan to wear matching outfits. It just happened. Apparently we are in sync like that.
Thank you to everyone who put this together and made it happen! It really was a community effort. The actors, the singers, musicians, even down to the orc noises. Merric and I cheered with delight when we saw the finished product!
One of the most amazing things about LOTRO is not actually the game but the people who play it. We consider ourselves privileged to be part of such a community!
The Casual Stroll to Mordor song is available in ABC format to play in game. I only mention it because I know you will be singing it for at least the next three days.
