Coursera brings back “Online Games: Literature, New Media and Narrative” on June 13th.   This Vanderbilt University course is a multimedia tour of how literature, film and games engage in the basic human activity of storytelling. Throughout the course, students will be given the opportunity to experience Tolkien’s world first-hand by playing LOTRO on the Gladden server.  Sign up at http://coursera.org/learn/onlinegames for this free course.


All events are listed in Eastern Daylight Time (-4 GMT)/server time, but an additional time zone is listed for EU server events.  You may add events or post corrections in the comments section, but the fastest and best way to get it on this page is to submit a form.  I’m always open to feedback and suggestions, both here and through the submissions form, so let me know if there’s something we should feature.  Thanks for reading!

Festival Time:

The Spring festival runs through June 21st.  Look like Bingo Boffin by grabbing the new Sightseer’s set, ride the new Steed of Ethuil, and take advantage of the new dye colours.  Shire-plum and Bullroarer Green are available for tokens while lavender and deep (or is it dark?) purple can be purchased with mithril coins.  The mithril gated dyes will be available for tokens next year while the other two dyes will only be available in exchange for mithril.
