Saturday, 10 April 2010


Me and my bf are trying Allods Online. It's a funny, free-to-play MMO, and I'm completely and unquestioningly in love with the Gibberling race. They're small, furry, and they come in threes. Fear the GIBBERLING HOOOOOORDE.

Music for merriment


I went and ripped a load of old NES, SNES and PS1 RPG midis into .abc music files, so that I could play them in last night's RP session - and most of them sound really great! It's a wonder how music designed for old high-pitched, beeping consoles can still sound so good, especially when played with better "instruments".

Okay, I may have some serious emotional attachment to some of the songs, but still, they're great.

Any tips on other old games apart from the obvious Squaresoft/Enix titles that have good soundtracks? (need midis)

I just love the creativity on the Laurelin server, the video above is one such player's original composition, played using the LotRO music system. *server pride*

New adventures.. again.

The new Moria Keg will take you to such wondrous places. And you'll lose your pants.

Lately I've spent a good amount of my LotRO time roleplaying. There has been a rather pleasant elf RP evening going each Wednesday for a while now, and I've had a good time there. First I just lurked in the rafters, but later I went there with some kin friends and had a lot of fun. I even went and made a couple character pages on the Laurelin Archives for my RP scrubs: Tuire and Lasse.

I'm actually looking forward to each week's session with a lot of excitement, since the RP in the Hall of Fire has been of rather good quality. I'm not a 100% lore buff myself (although I do set my standards pretty high), but I love the dedication some role-players show in their music and poems they perform. If you happen to play on the Laurelin server, have a look in the Hall of Fire each Wednesday around 7pm UK time.
