The people of Middle-earth are taking time to celebrate your favorite Baggins' birthdays on The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar
. Players can take time out and shrug off the horrors of war to help prepare for Bilbo and Frodo's birthday celebration at the Party Tree.
Keep a sharp eye out for the Riddlemaster if you fancy a battle of wits. More experienced players (43 and up) will have the chance to come to Frodo's aid in the Trollshaws by delivering a small birthday present to his Uncle Bilbo in the Belated Birthday Quest
. You'll receive a musical cracker for your efforts.
These annual events scattered throughout the year keep things interesting in an otherwise static world setting. I look forward to all the Fall Harvest Festivals and Halloween type events that are coming up next month. Look for a piece covering these autumn celebrations on your favorite MMORPGs coming soon.
