Experienced LOTRO Players Needed!

Good day my fellow LOTRO players! I hope the day for you is just as sunny as it is for me here in the south of England.

I am writing this article in hopes of finding some experienced LOTRO players who would like to be interviewed for The Evernight Report. I would like to delve into the minds of our best players to discover what enthrals them, why they continue to play for so many years and which is their favourite part of the game.

Is it the pirate outfits? It is, isn't it?
All applications welcome, though there are limited spaces available. Apply in the comments or message the page.

Help Hannihr get her Law Degree!

My dear People,

Some of you may know that I work within the legal industry by day, and by night I am an administrator of the Evernight facebook group, creator of LOTRO is Beautiful and director at Hannihr.

I would like to make the world a better place. Let's have more of the Shire, and less of Mordor. To quote Lady Galadriel, "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future". Standing at 5ft 3, I would rather happily agree with her.

This is why I am humbly asking for donations, so that I may fund my law degree to become a kick ass human rights lawyer. If you are able to, click here to donate! The smallest amount would be sincerely appreciated, and each person who donates will have their name immortalised on my dissertation.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. :)

The Evernight Report Just Hit 10,000 views!

Woah! Thank you ALL who have read my rambling articles over the past 2 and a half years! It's wonderful to see that Evernight has a strong readership and interest beyond logging into the game.

With this newspaper, I have had such a wonderful opportunity to meet players from all over the world. I cannot thank you all enough!

To celebrate this wonderful milestone, I would like to welcome you to a new facebook page! It is called LOTRO is Beautiful and can be accessed by clicking here! As I write this, we have 46 members in less than 48 hours! That's one per hour! :D

Thank you, my friends.

[Round Two] The Evernight Facebook Group's Big LOTRO Quiz 2016!

A few nights had passed since the first round of Evernight's Big LOTRO Quiz 2016. Hobbits had since eaten eight times their bodyweight, Dwarves had hollowed a fair few barrels of ale, Men and Women had made many a trip to the hunting lodge to have their meats smoked and salted. Of course, time did not affect Elves, and so nothing had changed for them and they continued glamorously sulking about. The Beornings, however, had used every Tailor in the land to mend their torn clothing after each transition from man to bear.

There was a quiet calm in the air. A quiet calm, that is, until Hannihr approached the Bree Town Stage.

"My dear People!" Hannihr announced, as she reached centre stage. "Thank you for your patience! It has been too long since Round One. To show my thanks, I have increased the winnings. An extra 100 gold coins are now in the pot! Good things come to those who wait. But remember, not all that glitters is gold!"

"The winnings for the Big LOTRO Quiz 2016 are as follows: 200 gold coins, level and class appropriate armour, a commemorative cloak, an almost infinite amount of ales, wines and beers, as well as an interview with yourself featured in Evernight's occasionally daily newspaper, The Evernight Report!" Hannihr took a hefty swig of her drink before continuing.

"Round two is dedicatedly solely to LITERATURE BY TOLKIEN AND TOLKIEN SCHOLARS*. This round will be particularly difficult, so do your best!"

*Tolkien Scholars refer to writers who are knowledgeable in Tolkien literature (published essays, critical literature, translations and commentary).

"Let Round Two begin! Good luck!"
