Lord of the rings online
Anniversary festival is there, so it was time for my toons to work. SSG listened to players, adding torches, so we could walk like Bree guards (I pray to all gods that no neo-nazi scum would use these…). There is also deed: use torches 150 times, get instant item. Xantipe, Stormsong started using…
Meanwhile server was lagging heavily. Looks it cannot handle 500-800 players at one time. Especially little areas that are crowded, like Anniversary firework area in Bree. Everything lagged, so it was hard for me to play. Employed Stormsong only, so that she gets cat, mount and as many crystals as possible. Strategy is old: 2 x fireworks (4 tokens), 1 x letters (2 tokens), once in few days – gifts (some 3 tokens). And Stormsong needs hundreds of Anniversary tokens…
Chat also witnessed discussion on philosophy. It started as innocent question – “When is the last day of Curator?”. I told that for our world every day is first and last. Other player joined, soon we were discussing what does word mean. If we call day – night, and night – day, could we say “It was a sunny bright night”? Probably no, since night cannot be sunny. Then it turned to Curator, me asking by whose authority this Curator – curates something?
Discussion on philosophy lasted. Even managed to talk (shortly) to one player who keeps blocking me. Kudos for him to telling about this openly. I did not even try to re-convince him. His choice.
Yet those philosophies were really cool. Refreshing.
This week I do hope to grind festival tokens. Idealistic goal – some 300 tokens, so that I get mount, cat and few crystals.
Weekend has ended, quite refreshing in Lotro.
