Middle Earth Wisdom threw down a challenge gauntlet a few years back to fellow LOTRO players. I am late to this party, but I am kicking off the new gaming-centered posts doing the Middle Earth Wisdom Lord of the Rings Online 30-day Challenge. Since LOTRO has been my favorite MMORPG since 2007, I figured, why not?
I will be posting the answers to the challenge six prompts at a time on Middle Earth Mondays, except for number 26, which requires an entire post on its own. On Feb. 28th, I will be posting twice; one will be 25 – 30 sans 26 and 26, all by its lonesome. There will be a total of 6 posts in this series.
Let the games begin!

LOTRO 30 Day Challenge #1 – 6
1. Pick a screenshot, any screenshot.

2. Which of your characters is your absolute favorite?
This is not an easy question! I have 2 favorite characters that I play on equally, and both on the Crickhollow server.
Raumolire – level 140 Runekeeper
Yainde – level 140 Minstrel
3. Favorite quest pack or expansion so far.
I adore the Gondor quest packs. The scenery in that region is beautiful, and I loved getting things ready for the big battle at Pelennor Fields.
4. Why did you start playing LOTRO?
Knowing what a Tolkien Geek I am, a friend told me he was beta testing a game called The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar. This immediately piqued my interest as he knew it would. I started playing in April 2007 and have never left.
5. Favorite NPC?
This is a difficult question. It’s like asking me which Ranger don’t I like. I adore all the Rangers we interact with, but there are some I like more than others. My favorite Rangers/Grey Company are Candaith, Daervunn, Lothrandir, Radanir, and the only named Ranger in the books, Halbarad.
6. Go on, give us another screenshot!
