LOTRO Outfits: Exploring Moria

Oct 1, 2014

Since I just finished up Eregion on my Lore-master, I knew I had to make a new, suitable outfit for her to explore the long dark of Moria in. No skirts – don’t want to trip on them in the dark! Heavy boots – need a firm footstep with extra toe protection so she doesn’t stub her toes. Dark colors – Moria is not exactly the...

Scout’s Honor (Part 1) – A Burglar’s Guide to the Quiet Knife

Just a few steps more and it is lights out for this creep… Oh, hey everyone!  You all caught me while being sneaky, something we Burglars very much enjoy being.  I am not sure why everyone insists on calling us Burglars, though.  I have never stolen a thing in my life, honest! So, you want to know what it is we do and how we go about doing it, you say? ...

  Tale by Doviel ‘Although the tales of ancient Elves are wonderful things, and one cannot help but be enthralled by each glimmering glimpse of the world as it was long ago, with its sky of ever-shining stars, I would tell a tale I was told, which was from not quite so long ago.’ ‘Nimrodelian, as he is known hither and yon, is older than he looks,’ and the...

LOTRO Outfits: Hobbit on a Mission

LOTRO Outfits: Hobbit on a Mission

Sep 26, 2014

This is another outfit that was designed while doing my livestream on Hitbox. For this outfit, two young hobbits were looking for bright (but not gaudy) outfits, appropriate for some adventure-some hobbits like themselves. With their input I put together this suitably cheerful outfit. It works well because both the hat and chestpiece can be dyed any bright...

Part 11 – West to Ruin Theomin woke early. His night was the most comfortable night he has had since being out on his quest, though this was only day three. The bed was not too soft, just the way he liked it. The temperature in the little house was perfect. If this was the way he could stay nightly, this was the perfect way.
