Back from a short absence

So real-life has been a bit of a drain lately for me and I’ve been very quiet of late both here on my blog as well as in-game.  It is a combination of a bunch of different things, but much of it will pass here soon. So to re-cap on …

Monday Forum update

So I wanted to share a few things I found interesting while checking up on the forums over the weekend. I’ll start off with a really good informational Lore post by Hakon_Stormbrow that shows a timeline of all the lands and kingdoms throughout the history of Middle-Earth.  Pretty helpful as …

Wardens marching through the forums

My guest podcast appearance
