Question of the Week


When can it be time to take a break from a game?

How much can breaks rejuvenate enjoyment of a game?(personal experiences ideal)

At what point is it time to think of a more permanent distancing from a game?


A big thanks to Merlin of Firefoot for a $10 or more donation to LOTRO Players!

“I have been playing for about 3 1/2 years now on Firefoot server. I have 10 active accounts with 43 active toons or toons I long on atleast once every 2 weeks. I also have 8 Kinships which 5 are rank 10. With 43 toons as you can guess I have many names but go by Merlin to all those who know me.

I could go on for a long time about stuff but will just tell you about my highlight in the game which was last Christmas as I started a toon name Santia Claus who in turn started the Kinship The North Pole. I saved up my chests & keys over the year and over Christmas Eve & Day gave away as Xmas presents 146 chests with keys to player I came across in Bree, MD & Thorns Hall. Santia Claus is a lvl 20 Dwarf Mini who got to lvl 20 without haveing to kill any mobs as everyone knows Santia Claus doesn’t kill stuff! 🙂 I am hopeing for this to become a yearly event for the Firefoot server as I posted about this for about 2 weeks before Christmas. Santia also has a band on Firefoot which I played music. Since last Xmas I have already collected around 325 chests & keys for next Xmas. I am sure I will have around 500 to pass out which for me is alot of fun.

Anyway as I said I could go on & on but won’t. I do have a fun question for you guys & gals at LOTRO Players:

How many non-temp toons do you have and if you were to add up their lvl’s what would it be?

Example: Myself = 1974 lvl’s with 43 toons for a average lvl of 45 (15 – 87)

I thought this would be interesting question and to see who really doesn’t have a life!  lol

Thanks for the work you guys & gals do.

Merlin of Firefoot”

“I have an entirely unrelated subject I’m preparing to podcast in support of.  Do you use any software in particular in producing your show?  Just curious from a technical standpoint.

Special Note From Layanor (via a converation on Skype with Drac)

“Dear Ethelros. This is Layanor! I am a huge fan and would like to ask you to do something. Could you pretend that you are teaching a class. and read off all the twitter names at the end of the show, in the voice of Snape from Harry Potter. Please be creative in awarding and scolding each name. THANKS! :D”
