Many of the dwarves of Laurelin seem to be in a frightful hurry these days. Thorin’s Hall is alight with activity in preparation for the games of the year that start tomorrow.

What games you say? The Harnkegger Games of course! LOTRO’s very own Olympics with a twist is back for its sixth year. Compete and earn yourself massive amounts of gold (nearly 2500 gold to be won!), plenty of sturdy steel keys and a hoard of LOTRO Points (a whopping 13.000 of them this year!) Oh and let’s not forget, eternal bragging rights, well, at least until next year of course.

The Harnkegger Games VI Schedule

Like every year The Harnkegger Games Committee on Laurelin (consisting of members from Durin’s Folk, The Blue Mountains Regiment, and The Shire Angling Club) get together and host a full week of crazy, exciting and hilarious games, this year running from Monday 11th till Sunday 17th of September.

The Harnkegger Games VI

Known for its various gaming contests, general merriment and consumption of rather large amounts of ale, this festival of Dwarvish origin offers 15 full-scale events, open to anyone with a Laurelin character out of the starter zone, a friendly smile, a good dose of sportsmanship and an eager spirit.

Not only do the Laurelinians and LOTRO themselves provide a massive hoard of prizes for the winners, but you also get to fight for the honor of your race! Will you ensure the dwarves earn their third consecutive Harnkegger Nations title this year? Or will you valiantly fight for the honor of Men or Hobbits, taking revenge for narrowly missing the title these last two years? Who knows… maybe the Elves might even win more than a couple of points this year and challenge the others for the title?

Don’t miss a minute of this year’s exciting Harnkegger Games via LOTRO’s very own twitch channel, where community manager Cordovan and the LOTRO streaming team will be covering every game day LIVE.

The opening concert, provided by the beardelicious dwarf band “The Rolling Kegs” , kicks off this year’s Harnkegger on Monday September 11th at 2pm servertime (US Eastern) in front of the doors of Thorin’s Halls on Laurelin.
