  • Monday Madness: mods & addons

    *sigh, rant on* Hello, I am an add-on addict. If a game allows modding of any sort, I seem drawn to them and in some cases find it hard to play the game with out them.  I have always thought games were made better or at least had their lifespans increased by allowing the […]

  • RoM: Magically delicious to play for free

    Today marked the official launch of Runes of Magic; a free to play MMO that looks a lot on the surface like World of Warcraft.  I am not about to start a debate about how good RoM is or how it compares to WoW, I am just saying the developers made it a point […]

  • Thursday Thoughts

    I have had a bit of writers block this week, even though there has been plenty to chat about. I guess I just have not been able to gather any subset of my thoughts up into a cohesive chunk. So instead, since this is my blog and I can make up the rules, I am […]

  • Quick lotro tip

    I keep collecting trophies items with tooltips that say on them “used in crafting”. With such a wonderful descriptions I just kept hording them all and figured I would figure out their true use some day. Well that day is here, they appear to be most often used on the mastery tab of an item […]

  • The Wednesday Wobble

    With each passing day I continue my plunge further and further into the depths of middle earth. I am on my fourth character, though my heart was never really into the third, and he just became a level 19 minstrel.  That matches the level of my champion whom I suspect will not see a […]
