JUST ONE GAME

I have quite a few favorite gaming blogs. They aren't just gaming blogs, they also capture the essence of a gamer, who is in fact a real living, breathing human being, but they do talk about games and the like.

I feel like my attempt at a gaming blog will be feeble. My life isn't extremely interesting. I'm young, inexperienced, and well, I only play one game. But it is that one game that has added a very unique spark to my life.

I've been playing Lord of the Rings Online for almost two years now. I don't know exactly and precisely how long, but I believe I began playing in October of 2012. I started off as every simple little baby LoTRO player starts off as: not knowing anything and perhaps making a fool of myself. I started off with a hobbit minstrel, and I got her to level 27, and it felt like the biggest achievement of my life. For personal reasons, I had to delete her, but I soon came back rolling, and my elf guardian was created. The milestones I jumped with this character were immense. I started teaching myself about cosmetics, I learned about the level 55 area in Bree, I hit level 45 and timidly adventured into Moria for the first time.

By this time, I've completely outleved Moria, Lothlorien, and Mirkwood. As a very part time gamer (and maybe full-time cosmetic junkie?) it has been a large achievement to reach the banks of the Anduin in northern East Rohan, and horn for my war-steed.

LoTRO has been a welcome part of my life for the last years, and I can't wait to see where just one simple MMO takes me.
