  Summer Games: Hide & Seek
Posted by: Ingaras - 14 Aug, 12, 11:24 - Replies (4)

As a holiday variation to our kinship events like horse racing and junk collecting, I'd like to introduce you to a brand new online version of Hide & Seek! It's inspired by some of the old 'Where was this picture taken?' threads we used to have and since you can choose when to start the game, it's perfect for the relaxed summer season!

So what does it involve? You pick a team-mate from our kinship or FotW members and get 5 sets of 2 pictures starring a LOTRO NPC! Together, your job will be to find that NPC and enter his or her name, and whichever team finds the 10 NPCs in the shortest amount of time wins! There will always be one picture in a level range of 1-40ish and one 40ish-75, so I highly recommend that veterans team up with recruits and vice-versa.

If everything goes smoothly, I'll keep the game open until RoR-release in a couple of weeks and arrange a nice price for the winners!

How does it work then?
[cutoff]
1) You go to the Game Page and select your team-mate

2) Your team-mate goes to the Game Page and Accepts your team request. The clock starts running!

3) You'll both get the first two pictures (one on the left, one on the right), looking like this (there might be a few seconds delay, when in doubt refresh the page):
[Image: aragorn.jpg]
You'll see right away that this is Aragorn, so you could enter Aragorn in the input field and help your friend with the 2nd picture. If you didn't remember Aragorn's name, you'd see he's standing in the Guest House in Rivendell so you'll go there and find out he's called plain and simple Aragorn.

- You'll need to enter the exact name, first and last, as displayed in-game of the most front-and-center NPC.

4) You can hit the submit button when you entered a single name to see if it's correct, but will only continue to the next set of pictures after both names are correct, so proper teamwork is required for the best times!

5) If you take a long time before entering the right answers, a hint will appear beneath the pictures pointing you where to go to avoid endless frustration.

6) Once you've completed the 5 sets, you'll be redirected to the results page to find out how you did.

Rules
Obviously these can't all be checked, but I trust you all to play fair.

- NO Googling! If you see the Bree stable-master, go to Bree to find his name!
- In the interest of fairness, NO Hunter/Hunter or Hunter/Warden teams please!
- NO Telling! There's only 1 set of pictures, so if you've done the game already, keep the answers to yourself... and that includes sudden Captain summons right next to pictured NPCs and similar creative solutions Wink
- NPCs involved in the photographs are excluded from participation!
- I'll not be responsible for loss of limb, virtual or real, or other damages caused by participating in this game...

In case of trouble, feel free to send me a forum message!

Since tomorrow will be 'World IPv6 day', the day that major internet providers like Google, Facebook, Mozilla and Microsoft start making their sites reachable over the new Internet Addressing system called IPv6, I've done some tweaking and our site should now also be fully reachable on its IPv6 address: [2a00:1c18:401:c00::586:2] !

For those not able to log into the game and getting an ERROR 50000 message when trying to login.

Turbine screwed something up again during maintenance and are now ineffectually and slowly trying to fix the problem.

As of 20:18 GMT Celestrata had this to say on the Turbine forum

Quote:During our investigation, the login servers have been made unavailable once more. We are still investigating this issue, and when I get an update, I'll let you all know.

  Orthanc T1 raid Sunday
Posted by: Kairos - 19 Apr, 12, 15:34 - Replies (1)

As Thursday's raid was cancelled, I have posted a T1 Ortanc raid for Sunday evening (Fire & Frost and Acid wings), with priority to those who still need the deeds on their main. Sunday raids have not been very popular in the past, so we'll have to see how much interest there is.

I will in any case post another T1 raid in the near future, probably on May Day...

  Current raiding schedules
Posted by: Kairos - 09 Mar, 12, 07:48 - No Replies

We currently have the Lightning Wing (Steamworks) at T2C almost on farm (the last two attempts were both successful). This means a guaranteed Worn Symbol of the Elder King drop, sometimes even (as last night) a double drop. My intention is to continue running a weekly Lightning raid on Thursdays so as to get all raiders at least one FA item, with Tuesdays devoted to exploring a new wing, currently Fire & Frost.

However, I have posted an exceptional Lightning run for Tuesday 20/3 for those regular raiders who cannot come on Thursdays. Once we are confident that we can complete Lighting under pretty much any circumstances, I'll start alternating it between Thursday and Tuesday.

Under the circumstances, it becomes particularly important for those members who have declared themselves regular raiders to continue making themselves available in order to benefit from rotation. We will of course continue to be dependent upon the participation of casual or irregular raiders in order to fill the ranks. Just in case anyone is wondering, casual or last-minute participants will have equal loot rolling rights to everybody else, subject to the limitation that for the time being, members are limited to one FA item per player.
