Yesterday, I returned to Oatbarton. Here in Oatbarton, my Lore-master learned everyhting needed to cross pipe-weed:

Trying to reach the trollshaws

I just left the start region and reached level 8 when I decided to travel east towards Rivendell. A first break was in Bree.

I crossed the lone lands and saw Weathertop.


It became obvious, that all the enemies on my way are much stronger. Nevertheless, I crossed the last bridge alive.

Look at the morale bar, there is not much left. So don’t expect me to get to Rivendell. Unfortunately, I don’t have a screenshot of the troll sending me with a single hit back to where I belong.

My first screenshot

My very first screenshot of a lore-master started with the beta of LOTRO. I am in the start region Edhelion. Created in April 2007, more than 10 years ago.


We just celebrated the 10th anniversary of Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO). I hope the servers will run for at least another 10 years, but since we are getting closer to Mordor, I want to be prepared for the worst. On this web site, I will make information, screenshots, and videos available that will show the vast landscape of middle earth and that will keep the memory alive. My primary goal is to create a lot of videos traveling from North to South, East to West.
