A Light from the Shadow

In the Presence of Sauron

In the Presence of Sauron

One of my goals for the remainder of the year is to finish Volumes 1 and 2 in Lord of the Rings Online on my main, Brynulf.  Thanks to Goldenstar and Meric from A Casual Stroll to Mordor, I’ve been able to make quite a bit of progress.  When the game launched, Volume 1 was eight Books although with content updates the finaly number is 15.  Well it’s taken me nearly two years, but last night I finally finished Book 8 with the help of the Casual Strollers and Azz from The Wizzard of Azz.  We did go past and complete Book 9 and Book 10 Chapter 1 as well.

I’m not sure how likely it’ll be that I finish Volume 2, but I am going to finish Volume 1.  Only 5 more Books to go.

Go check out Goldenstar’s writeup and screenshots.  She has a nice shot of her in front of a Palantír.

    That’s pretty cool. If I do resub, that is one thing I really want to focus on, getting through the books. I think I got to chapter 10 in book 1, that’s it.

      While I enjoy the Epic Quests, I’m not sure if I’ll replay them on any of my alts. Partly just because of the fellowship requirements. Plus, once I know the story they lose quite a bit of their attraction for me.
