  • Update 15 - Gondor Aflame
Recently, I've been playing a female Beorning - Valanne. So I haven't been in-game on my main toons - Valamar and Valdicta.
Which means I haven't been to Central Gondor other than during the Beta.
It is slow-going as I'm acquiring "knowledge" for the Wiki as I go along.
Virtually every level-up causes me to spend a day updating "what changed" on the Wiki.
(Not to mention getting rid of those bloody Festival and Hobnanigans pop-ups.)
It seems that for every 4-6 hours (wall-clock time) I spend in game, I spend a similar or longer amount of time Editing!
A lot of the time editing is spent "catching up" with things that Turbine has changed in some "recent" update.
And boy are there a lot of them -- and fewer and fewer editors on the Wiki. It's a good thing Turbine has fewer Devs -- means fewer changes :(


I haven't run the "starter areas" in "forever." I.e. especially Bree, and I know I will hit the same issue (masssive updates to content) as I move on to the Lone Lands, Trollshaws and Misty Mountains, areas which Turbine recently "revisited." And I haven't run the deeds in the Shire or Ered Luin, yet! (Have to get those virtues up.)
"So much time, so little to do -- strike that, reverse it..."
The "nice thing" about U15 has been the fact that I haven't crashed with the Mac Client yet!!!
Historically, I've been able to get only about 45-75 minutes playing time with the Mac Client before some timer runs out and I get a crash-to-desktop.
What has made this particularly interesting is that I know there has been a significant difference in "playing time" between the Old-world and the New...
"Old world" is those parts of the game existent before Riders of Rohan Vs. those created after it.
Bree was the wild-card for a while. ScaryCrow did a major update of Bree using the "new technology" from Riders of Rohan, and for a while it seemed to be just as crash prone as Rohan. But that seems to have changed.
  • Is it because of Yosemite, Apple's most recent update to OSX? Or is it something that Turbine has done? Since neither vendor communicates with their clients, it's all conjecture based on "the complainers" -- i.e. those who post on the forums!
Things are "curioser and curioser."

Sigh. My "Keyboard cat" decided I wasn't paying enough attention to her and threw-up on my keyboard while I was out to dinner.

So now I'm reduced to using my iPad till a new one arrives from Logitech.

At least she gave me an excuse to spend the money to upgrade to a G105 :)

Well, I think I'm "mostly" moved in to my new apartment. Still have boxes to unpack, but my Internet seems to be a solid 30x5 meg or so (Comcast), and the cats seem happy.

Talk about bad timing -- When your number comes up.... I am preparing to move into a retirement community on the 15th of November. At the moment, I don't know what my Internet connectivity will be. Hopefully, I'll know more next week. But in any case, I'll be off the net completely for some period of time around the 15th.

Wm Magill - Valamar - OTG/OTC - talk 18:01, 28 October 2013 (EDT)

I will be off-line beginning tonight for ?hopefully? only a few days, but definitely until at least the 19th or 20th. Have to wait for my new internet connection.

Now living in Elizabethtown, PA,

I'm a long time AD&D player (Yes, Advanced Dungeons and Dragons -- from TSR, before they were bought by Wizards of the Coast).
The world I play in began on the fifth of November in the year 1983!
I maintain our Chronicles on-line. "George's world".
I began play Dungeons and Dragons Online (DDO) when Turbine first announced it back in about 2004.
As member of the Old Timers Guild on DDO (our name is in the Fountain), I was invited into the pre-beta for LOTRO... and never left. That was back in 2007.
A Founder and Lifetime LOTRO player I have found it to be a fun game and the OTG a fun Kinship.
The OTG got to be one of the largest guilds (as we called them in the beginning) on Gladden and in LOTRO in the early years -- we hit Turbine's level cap within about six months.
Since a lot of us are Crafters, we split into a second Kinship - The Old TIme Crafters (OTC). I have toons in both.

OTG

In 2005 a vision formed in answer to the question, "Wouldn't it be nice to game with like-minded mature gamers who just want to have some fun?" The result of that vision is...


The Old Timers Guild
Laid back, not too serious, no drama...all about the fun.

We are a global gaming community with members from all walks of life aged 25 to 80ish. Everything we are is built on the premise that gaming is fun and we prefer to do it without any drama. We have active chapters in every AAA MMO plus many FPS and niche games.

The Hobbit

Release date 14 December 2012

It explains various scenes which are mixed throughout the trailer... the trailer is not in time-line sequence...
The two commentators read the books a long time ago... it's amusing to catch their comments... particularly in the reference to Gandalf fighting a wizard, calling him Rhadgast the Brown ... but who is actually the Necromancer. (I believe.)
