Memorial Event for Tinki

Jul 8, 2016

Dear LOTRO Players, With a sad heart I have to pass on the news that LOTRO has lost another fine player. Tinki has left Middle-Earth, she sails over the western seas to the Undying Lands. I first met Tinki and cousin Pipsi in my early days as a member of The Lonely Mountain Band, we LOTRO’d as a group of role-players experiencing The Shire content while...

A Critters Journey [21] Crafting struggles

Apr 30, 2016

A new story with a new format. The Critter Journey has gotten some new upgrades. Gone are the days of weirdly fitting text bubbles and set 1-page comic episodes. No more need to cut corners in panels to fit that weeks content. Editing the Critters recap video made it clear that had to go. This also makes room for wider shots with background or interludes that...

A Critters Journey [9] – A blues monday

Feb 6, 2016

As sapience tried to get some peace and quiet after he finally gave up on keeping the cats away. He was rudely awoken again. In the end he caved in and spent some of his hard-earned coins on what was supposed be a “premiere room for a lively hobbit as himself”. Never trust a ward in his own house trying to sell you his produce. As the night drew...

A critters journey [8] “Extra life” of the party

Jan 30, 2016

Having caught up to the expeditionary force George began to find out it grew larger then sapience expected. “This hobbit gave it too much attention”, sapience said. I only meant to get some life in the brewery and perhaps collect a few donations for my cause. They even planned all sort of events along the way. I’m supposed to open a festival...

A critters journey [5] – Everyone a year older

Jan 9, 2016

With another year past and everything and everyone a bit older.It’s time to get back to their Critters Journey in 2016. All the critters have calmed down and left the Yule festival for what it is.  Last time George was right on the heels of the Isengard party. There was just a small stream inbetween him and...

Happy holidays from Critters Journey

A little christmas break that got used to round up the entire crew for a little gathering and snowman bashing. But as expected getting a ton of animals to sit still for more then 5 seconds proved to be a bit more work then expected. But once they were all too tired from the running around and messing with each other we managed to take a final shot that was good...

A critters Journey [4] – A fowl to Isengard

    “The hobbit is going to Isengard”, Surely George must have misheard Wald. It was probably just that annoying nephew singing that obnoxious song again. He might be mistaken this time.           “Fly you fowl”, as Squirle shouted waving George goodbye on new adventure. And the merry little chicken set...

A critters journey [3] – WTB new adventures

George and his dastardly crew said their farewells for the 2nd time. During the forthcoming nights every critter went on their way to their old homes. In critter time it felt like years went by without a noteworthy event, but in Shire days it was just a few months before new trouble started to rear its ugly head. A hobbit named Sapiense was tired of the...

A critters journey [1] – Angmar’s help

Dark omens While sorting through the first few pages  the newly discovered stash of treasures in the Minas Tirith library. A previous unknown epilogue from the wolf attack on Sandsons farm was uncovered. It was always assumed all the wolves were defeated. It seems that thought was wrong. There are even more ominous signs that angmars influence was corrupting...

New chapters of There and back again discovered – A critters journey

Plenty of battles and skirmishes went unnoticed. Not all tales were so influential that they made it into the Red book. Dwarves, elves, humans and hobbits all had their part in the Great war. But the critters of Middle Earth went by unseen and unheard. So far. In the depths of the library of Minas Tirith a secret room has been uncovered. Illustrations and notes...
