LOTRO, The Lord of the Rings Online, is an MMO you can begin playing for free! I’ve been playing for a few years now. This online RPG has a lot to explore, enjoy and experience.
It features a very active player base, a positive community and extensibility through plugins. And because you can start for free, there’s no reason not to jump in and visit Middle-Earth.
Here you can find my LOTRO Guides, general blog posts and FanFiction story-writing too.
If there’s an aspect of the game you’d like to know about, or think I should write about, please let me know.
