Turbine Loses its Patience

Today marks a sad day in the LOTRO Community. Today, Patience announced on Twitter that this Friday will be her last day at Turbine. Here’s what she had to say on the forums:

Without question, working at Turbine and with such incredible communities, games, and players has been the highlight of my career. I have so many excellent memories – the birth of the populs, the legends of the chinchillas, LOTROG I & II, meeting so many of you at PAX on both coasts, plus a lot of our European players at GamesCom! Alpha, pre-beta, closed beta, open beta, launch and beyond. What a great six years it’s been.

I’m heading back to the west coast, where I grew up (yes, Virginia, there is such a thing as a Los Angeles native), to be closer to my family. I am going to miss my Turbine family very much, but thanks to Twitter and Facebook, this isn’t goodbye.

You are all in very capable hands with the community folks old and new (well, Sapience is old, anyway – HA! YES! ONE LAST DIG!). They’ll keep working hard to keep the community informed and thriving all the way to Mordor.

Take care, my friends, and safe travels in Middle-earth!

With much affection,
Meghan, aka Patience

Good luck, wherever the road may take you :)

Fans of Epics Rejoice: Volume 2 Revamp is Coming!

Sapience said in a recent thread:

The main story arc (not the Epilogues) of Volume II is being revamped in the same manner Volume I was in the past. So you’ll be able to choose to solo through it if you wish.

For those of you (I should say ‘us’ as I am included in this group) who have not been able to finish Volume 2 due to the large amount of group required content, fear no more. You too shall be able to use Inspired Greatness (or something similar, I assume) to finally finish off your Volume 2 quests. Yay!

Cithryth’s Tips for a Good Outfit

Amongst my group of LOTRO friends, I am the go-to person for advice on outfits. I love making cool outfits for my characters and helping others with their outfits. I’ve never really been a girly-girl, but boy do I love playing dress up with my characters!

So I have decided to put my ‘skills’ to use and write up some tips and guidelines I use when putting together outfits.

Winter Home Resolution: Yay Cosmetics!

According to those who loaded up Bullroarer to test out the patch coming on Monday. Thus far, only information has been gleaned regarding those who helped the poor for the Honoured Yule Gust deed. But that information will come as a sweet reward to those who did!
