  1. Another great show! Thank you all! I would like to correct one thing Maven said in her this week in LOTRO. I was with her and Faervenen when we did the Black Serpent instance. It was me on my Cappy Linlen that “accidentally” (read inept tab selection) the second group of mobs in the Dog Boss area, not our Minstrel. I didn’t want Faervenen to be blamed unjustly… Having put the blame where it belongs, I will say, it lead to a lot of laughs, if wiping can ever be funny….
