New Player Question

How does the Chicken Run actually work? Where would you pick up the session play, what are Chicken Tenders, is it level specific, etc?




  • First ever Doomfold Farmer and Cook.
  • Sans’s alt Calondrian (RK) and my main Cyndarina can 1 shot spiderlings in Lhingris.


  • A LOTRO first for Maven: my hunter has completed all the Mordor deeds (except one: the scourges, which will take a bit)
  • Wynny the Pew, my Beorning, is now 112, and has been fitted out with her ash armor. Also I’m beginning to remember how to play the OP furball
  • Attended Raid School with Yoke of PLOI. Experimented on Giant Wing of Helegrod to try different strategies with various classes. Most informative, and a highly recommended exercise.



  • Burned through a bunch of Mithril Coins working on Volume 1 on my Aria’d LM.
  • Attempted the session play for the elf allegiance twice, too frustrated to attempt a third time.
  • Got to listen to Pineleaf do some truly epic Grima narration during the field trip.



  • My Lore-master quested in the Dolven-view and visited several ancient dwarven libraries
  • The Thursday group found a missing forge
  • For the field trip, we finished up our sentence in Wildermore and headed for Edoras
