(5:56:23 PM) VardaValar1: Gaming:
(5:56:26 PM) VardaValar1: WoW:
(5:56:46 PM) VardaValar1: The Lothar group has been active on and off all week.
(5:56:48 PM) Indis: I have one piece of membership news
(5:56:54 PM) VardaValar1: Go ahead.
(5:57:27 PM) Indis: I will be out of the country on a business trip between the 2nd and the 12th of June. I still don't know what my internet and time situation will be.
(5:57:38 PM) VardaValar1: Thanks for letting us know.
(5:57:51 PM) VardaValar1: So you'll be hitting LotRO harder than usual for a while? : )
(5:58:04 PM) Indis: or less hard--depends
(5:58:21 PM) VardaValar1: If you hit it harder than usual, it'll bounce. ;-)
(5:58:36 PM) VardaValar1: I hope the trip works out well for you!
(5:59:08 PM) VardaValar1: Lothar group includes activity from Bofur and Nob, that you know as Dagr and Elenrandir.
(5:59:10 PM) Indis: but I expect to be very busy with business during the day, and it's in Egypt, so the time zone situation will be a mess for LotRO
(5:59:43 PM) VardaValar1: Just enjoy playing when you can. Maybe Arien can be on during your new time zone. : )
(6:00:12 PM) VardaValar1: Feel free to skip gaming and try to get some rest! No worries. We'll be there when you get back. : )
(6:01:00 PM) VardaValar1: Bilbo, Sauron, Fangorn, Elwing, Eonwe, Varda, Bofur, Nob, and Varda were on Lothar, and some on Uldaman as well.
(6:01:05 PM) VardaValar1: LotRO:
(6:01:28 PM) VardaValar1: The Monday and Wednesday regular runs are happening regularly!
(6:01:41 PM) Indis: Some info on that...
(6:01:59 PM) VardaValar1: Currently we're running Fil Gashan trying to get smoother.
(6:01:59 PM) VardaValar1: Go ahead, Indis.
(6:02:52 PM) Indis: Ulmo's level 51 got to the Forgotten Treasury today, and he's asked that we do FT tomorrow night, possibly with either a repeat or another Fil Gashan run.
(6:03:23 PM) VardaValar1: Forgotten Treasury would be good. A number of us could also finish up deeds there.
(6:03:27 PM) Indis: Gildor, Nim, and Eomer (and I) agreed that it would be fine with us.
(6:03:40 PM) Indis: Yes, it would be good clean-up for alts.
(6:03:48 PM) VardaValar1: Sounds as if we have a full group already. : )
(6:03:54 PM) Indis: close
(6:04:10 PM) VardaValar1: Gildor, Nim, Eomer, Ulmo, Indis, and Varda
(6:04:23 PM) Indis: assuming they all show up
(6:04:37 PM) VardaValar1: or others who can fill in the slots. : )
(6:04:54 PM) VardaValar1: Thanks, very good to know.
(6:05:33 PM) VardaValar1: In LotRO, we are also having a free weekend for the Memorial day holidays, including free stables and extra experience.
(6:05:49 PM) VardaValar1: Any further business?

(6:06:11 PM) VardaValar1: Tolkien:
(6:06:50 PM) VardaValar1: Can we each name one battle from any Tolkien book, with at least one participant and what that person did?
(6:07:41 PM) Indis: Heh, the War of Wrath, led by none other than Eonwe :)
(6:07:44 PM) VardaValar1: Fall of Gondolin. Glorfindel slew the balrog, which also slew him, so that the refugees could escape.
(6:07:47 PM) VardaValar1: Nice one. : )
(6:08:49 PM) VardaValar1: Arien is probably afk in WoW.
(6:09:04 PM) VardaValar1: Would you like to go one more time and call it a night?
(6:09:10 PM) Indis: OK
(6:09:28 PM) Indis: The Battle of Helm's Deep, with most of the usual Fellowship suspects.
(6:09:57 PM) Indis: Except of course for Frodo and Sam, who were otherwise occupied, and Boromir, who was probably afloat on the Great Sea.
(6:10:27 PM) VardaValar1: Battle of Pelennor Fields. Eomer sliced and diced many of the enemy to come to the aid of Gondor, and became the next king of Rohan when his uncle Theoden-king died in the battle.
(6:10:46 PM) AriehnV: Hmm Battle of Thousend Tears or something
(6:10:47 PM) VardaValar1: Boromir, slacking.
(6:10:49 PM) Indis: Again, with many of the usual suspects :)
(6:10:57 PM) AriehnV: forgot the elvish name]
(6:11:02 PM) Indis: Nirnaeth Arnoedad
(6:11:22 PM) Indis: Unnumbered Tears

(6:12:21 PM) AriehnV: Gwindor thats it
(6:12:29 PM) AriehnV: me and names
(6:13:04 PM) VardaValar1: Elwing-V mentioned the Battle of Pelennor Fields and Eowyn who fought the Witch-king.
(6:13:24 PM) VardaValar1: (Elwing-V is in the room with me)
(6:13:27 PM) Indis: a most appropriate mention
(6:14:40 PM) VardaValar1: Fangorn-Valar mentions the battle near the throne of far-seeing, Boromir died protecting Merry and Pippin.
(6:15:01 PM) VardaValar1: (He's in the room too.)
(6:15:35 PM) Indis: Naturally he would name an event that led the Fellowship to FAngorn :)
(6:15:37 PM) VardaValar1: Arien, like to do one more?
(6:15:41 PM) VardaValar1: Of course!
(6:16:38 PM) VardaValar1: If everyone's done...
