  1. Barnabras /

    Couple of things I noticed on update 19. When you do the “bridge” instance, you can see the path to Cirith Ungol and Shelob’s lair. Also I thought it was funny that you put the kings head back on the statue. What does that thing weight 14 tons?

  2. Don’t Haffle the Hoss!

  3. Tomeoric /

    “Premium housing”… you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. Anyone else besides me that thinks they look like mausoleums (both inside and out)? Or the inside of a bank vault? While I have the MC to purchase one, I’m going to save it for when I can buy something that looks and feels like a house – or when Bingo Boffin’s house comes on the market…

  4. Been awhile, but gandalf isnt a bit overqualified for archiving stories? The stories that were found in episode 0 ;).
