Mae govannen fellow travellers of Middle-earth! Lately my blog activity has slowed down to only a few posts this year. I am still playing Lotro, but not as actively as I used to, since I started a new business this year that takes up a lot of my time.

As you may know, for Update 9 I have assembled some outfits for the mannequins that stand near the armour smiths and outfit vendors in various locations. Currently two of my outfits are on display.

When I started getting seriously interested in the possibilities of outfitting, the Wardrobe function had just been introduced by Turbine a few months prior. Even though the Wardrobe was more restricted than it is today, it opened up a whole new world […]
I’ve updated my guide about cosmetics and outfitting, and split it up into different subsections. The “How to …” guide will now explain various aspects of outfitting in written text, and uses a drop down menu from the main blog bar. It’s just a small update, but I think it makes things a little clearer and easier to find.
