I HAVE been playing Lotro but as far as what to report I don't have much. I have continued to push the frontier a little, I'm exploring a frozen ghost ship for (vol)1.(book)13.(chap)6ish i.e. (1.13.6) and I find the last king of men to rule middle earth. Unfortunately he needs a special tome locked in a dungeon overflowing with Dourhands and the only way for my poor little minstrel to get in there since I cant handle two or three at once very well is to get some sucker, errr nice person to go with me. Well, nobody is usually feeling that generous but anyways, I explored Moria a little more and I'm glad its not a wide as it looked initially cuz you cant ride a mount in there except from preset travel destinations. Book 2.2.1~etc so far has been all about running around or little kill quests
On a funner note my little sister showed me these jewels on youtube. Check them out!

Oh, and I watched Tales of Earthsea while I was sick and it was really well done. Good movie and first one done by Miyazaki's son Goro I believe that
