Contains Moderate Peril Podcast to Celebrate 10 Years of LOTRO
Over the last ten years, both Brian and I have had a long and at times tumultuous relationship with the MMORPG, The Lord of the Rings Online. Yet we both have a great deal of affection for the game along with many fond memories. It has been a subject that we have regularly discussed on our various podcasts. Therefore, we thought it would be a great idea to dedicate an entire episode of the Contains Moderate Peril podcast, to LOTRO and reflect upon its highs and occasional lows. Furthermore, rather than just reminiscing from our own perspective, we feel it would be far more interesting to hear the opinions of fans and wider the community. Therefore, we are formally inviting you, as players of LOTRO, to tell us about your memories and experiences of this truly enduring MMO.
To try and make this process as accessible as possible, we’re happy to accept submissions in any of the following formats.
1.) Comment on this post. Potentially the easiest way. Tell us about how you started playing LOTRO or what has been the most memorable experience you’ve had in the game. What do you like about the LOTRO and its community. What are your hopes and aspirations for the games future development. It’s up to you what exactly you want to tell us about. We’d love to hear from you.
2.) Email. Why not drop us a line care of email@example.com and recount an anecdote about the game. Again, it’s up to you what you want to share with us about LOTRO. There is no right or wrong way to do this.
3.) Audio file. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, why not record your reminiscence about LOTRO or send us a message from your buddies or kinship? Most smart phones have a voice recorder these days. We won’t be too picky about the audio quality. WAV or MP3 files are the preferred format.
Please note, although we intend to produce a longer than average podcast to celebrate the 10th anniversary of LOTRO, it is inevitable that we shall have to make some editorial decisions about content. Therefore, please bear in mind that submitting material does not guarantee its inclusion in the shows final edit. The usual legal caveats regarding content also apply.
Because Standing Stone Games anniversary celebrations for LOTRO are scheduled to run throughout the next two months, we’ve set a deadline for content submissions of Sunday the 7th May. Provisionally the release date for the finished podcast is Friday the 12th of May. This may be subject to change depending on the response we get.
Brian and I have wanted to do some kind of vox pop with our listeners for several years now and feel that combining this with the LOTRO anniversary is a great opportunity. Therefore, we’re both looking forward to hearing from fellow LOTRO players and enjoying your stories, vignettes and anecdotes. I’m sure there are many familiar voices to be heard but I’m especially excited by the opportunity to hear from those who have quietly player over the years and have yet to speak out. Here’s your chance to share your thoughts and to celebrate ten years of The Lord of the Rings Online.
