Journey Through Middle Earth IX: Recalling Adventures Past

In the spirit of the anniversary remembrances, the ninth instalment of Journey Through Middle Earth contains views from some of the older areas. Future posts will concentrate on Rohan since I have managed to delete my older screenshots and it is not possible to produce high fidelity ones with Surface 3. [THE LORD OF THE RINGS…

Journey Through Middle Earth VIII: War in Rohan

The power supply unit of my desktop PC broke down earlier this year and, instead of going through the trouble of installing a new one, I decided to switch entirely to my Surface 3 tablet. It cannot run LotRO well, and I am currently unable to take any fancy screenshots. Fortunately, I managed to finish Rohan…

LotRO on Surface 3 Round 2

After the mixed results of my first experiment in running Lord of the Rings Online on Surface 3, I decided to give another try. This time, I installed the game on a memory card and used a wireless Bluetooth mouse instead of a wired laser mouse. I used recommended settings for my system (Very Low)….

Journey Through Middle Earth VI: Meduseld

‘I see a white stream that comes down from the snows,’ he said. ‘Where it issues from the shadow of the vale a green hill rises upon the east. A dike and mighty wall and thorny fence encircle it. Within there rise the roofs of houses; and in the midst, set upon a green terrace,…

Journey Through Middle Earth V

It has been a while since my last Journey Through Middle Earth post. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much for LotRO so this time I decided to share a bunch of miscellaneous older screenshots.

Murf’s Screenshot Safari: Heroes or Villains

Not all heroes are mighty warriors and wizards. There are a lot of everyday heroes struggling in war-torn Rohan. Like this pregnant Rohirrim woman who was bullied by her peers because she got the man, they all were after.  This is my third entry to the Murf’s Screenshot Safari challenge for Newbie Blogger Initiative. [THE LORD OF…

Murf’s Screenshot Safari: Landscape

For the second week of the Murf’s Screenshot Safari challenge for Newbie Blogger Initiative, I chose a view of Mirkwood from the bank on Anduin. Despite hiding hosts of the dark lord, the area looks serene from Lothlórien. [THE LORD OF THE RINGS ONLINE™ interactive video game © 2015 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.]

Running The Lord of the Rings Online on Surface 3

I got the new Surface 3 with 4 GB memory this week and even if I did not get it play games I had to test how it performs. So, I installed The Lord of the Rings Online on external hard drive and gave it a short spin. Loading times were long, but the game…

Murf’s Screenshot Safari: Selfie

My first entry to the Murf’s Screenshot Safari challenge for Newbie Blogger Initiative is a shot of my captain Dreogan ready to do battle. My combat screenshots usually do not succeed that well, but this pose came out pretty good. The sky and reflections add to the dramatic effect even if the enemy is not on the screen. [THE…
