Are you still playing Lord of the Rings Online? No really, are you? Leave a comment and let me know how it's going for you.

But first, please enjoy this news about the latest update! Volume III: Allies of the King is beginning to unfold, and if you're a LOTRO subscriber you can now access Book 1: Oath of the Rangers. 

“2009 was another outstanding year for LOTRO with Siege of Mirkwood earning us another game of the year award while driving solid growth in the population of Middle-earth,” said Aaron Campbell, Live Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online.  “Today we continue our journey with the introduction of the third volume of our award-winning story and the addition of new epic battles as we expand our popular Skirmish system.  There has never been a better time to play LOTRO!” 

The update adds a new Duo Mode (allowing two players and their soldiers to battle across Middle Earth) as well as four new 12-player skirmishes. New high-level skills, recipes, and the Spring Festival are just gravy. From March 22nd until April 19th, enjoy special decorations, costumes, and special quests like the return of the Hedge Maze and the new arena in Duillond.
