Eonwe Valar: Ok, on to Web News:
VardaValar1: I have some. :-)
Eonwe Valar: Go ahead Varda :}
VardaValar1: Photos of new models may be found deep in the Cave of DeepGroover-(T):
VardaValar1: "Cerdic of Wessex" full figure. This was used to illustrate the Tolkien Encyclopedia articles about Hama.
VardaValar1: "Medieval Knight" bust
VardaValar1: Our art site is intended to help illustrate our Tolkien Encyclopedia, so it was very nice to be able to use one for that. : )
Eonwe Valar: Yay :}
VardaValar1: Some drabble stories are in the works, should be up this coming week.
VardaValar1: That's all for now.
ArPharazonV: I wonder what that knight is looking at.
Eonwe Valar: Thanks :}
VardaValar1: He may have seen you coming, Phar.
ArPharazonV: "Eek, it's the king, everybody hide!"
VardaValar1: No doubt

Eonwe Valar: Gaming:
Eonwe Valar: Starcraft 2, patch 1.3.1 came out this week. Not a big one, but it's there.
VardaValar1: cool
ArPharazonV: And 1.4.11 was announced, but.. well.. that date ;-)

Eonwe Valar: Turns out WC3 had a patch too earlier in March, so if you still play that, make sure to take a look :}
AriehnV: hehe i loved that one grin
AriehnV: that gave me a chuckle

WoW April Fool's Day:
Eonwe Valar: And aye, I hope you all enjoyed the different April Fool's stuff from Blizzard for this year :}
ArPharazonV: Can we make a list?
Eonwe Valar: Blizzard usually does one on their own shortly thereafter.
AriehnV: female locks called witches , and priest clas has to take vows of chastity *giggle" , i want to see that in Goldshire hehe
ArPharazonV: I know Crabby, the dungeon helper, for WoW, the new instance in complete darkness with its boss called "Omgsogoth", the Starcraft Motion Overdrive system, patchnotes for WoW and SCII...
Eonwe Valar: But it comes down to SC2 patch notes, a Horadric Cube App for cell phones, the WoW 4.1.11 preview.
ArPharazonV: and a cube application from Diablo on your phone that combines other applications and opens portals into dark dimensions
Eonwe Valar: And let's not forget Crabby, the Dungeon Helper.
AriehnV: so nice grin, he looks cute tho
ArPharazonV: Did I miss anything?
AriehnV: time warp thing for warriors was a nice one
Eonwe Valar: Some people thought the raid finder post was an April Fool's joke, so the joke really is on them :}
ArPharazonV: the raid finder post?
VardaValar1: On April Fool's Day, trust nothing. : )
Eonwe Valar:
Eonwe Valar: It came out before April first :}
Eonwe Valar: Close, but still before :}
ArPharazonV: Ah. Yes. No such blog on the EU site.
ArPharazonV: Did you get the blog about the new instance in the US?
ArPharazonV: actually
Eonwe Valar: Yeah.
Eonwe Valar: I think we've covered all the April Fool's stuff.
ArPharazonV: I love the screenshot about the companion bat.

Eonwe Valar: LotRO:
Eonwe Valar: Servers will be down tomorrow to apply an update to the recent update :}
Eonwe Valar: Varda, would you like to give the weekly reports?
VardaValar1: ok
VardaValar1: Monday's run we farmed a tidy 20 Medallions of the North-man tokens just outside of Ost Dunhoth
VardaValar1: and did a quick run into Sammath Gul in Mirkwood taking down the first boss and picking up Dol Guldur medallions before people had to go to bed.
VardaValar1: Wednesday we picked up marks in the Great Barrows of Bree, doing two wings and most of Sambrog's wing before we had to stop for the night.
VardaValar1: Starting so late in order to bring in people after work also means we have a tight schedule that hits our runs a bit hard sometimes.
VardaValar1: We have daily afternoon group runs and evening runs with small groups, even some morning grouping daily. :-)
VardaValar1: You're all welcome to pop in anytime. : )

WoW reports:
VardaValar1: WoW Americas has two regular runs also for Friday evenings and after Sunday meetings.
VardaValar1: So we should be having one this evening.
AriehnV: och aye i think the resto is getting available for low level runs :-)
AriehnV: 29 hit
VardaValar1: The two special nights so far have been runs for our high levels to try to clear guild achievements quickly. Maybe we can come up with something though, like a worgen pack run. : )
VardaValar1: I fear you'll be asleep after the meeting, unfortunately.
VardaValar1: Any other WoW news?
AriehnV: i can stay a wee bit but u know me i usually retire at around one when i work the next day :-(
ArPharazonV: I believe Arien and Helm have set up an arena team or a bg team or something?
AriehnV: i formed a pvp arena team with our Helm V on Wow Argent Dawn within the hIGH GUARD where he joined us aye
AriehnV: so i ve been grinding bgs a lot and crafting the pvp set#
VardaValar1: Helm is welcome to add something about his Helm charater to the Tolkien Site. You know the drill on articles being from the original books, and we take poetry, stories, art, music, and languages too.
AriehnV: i ll tell him avbout it if he wants to do some research on his character
VardaValar1: I would really like to see everyone do research on their own characters. It's similar to the biographies other rp groups make.
AriehnV: Helm i assume you mean :-) for Calgacus the actual wow character he is playing wouldnt be a good idea *gg* rather u d learn more than u want to know , grin
AriehnV: i see whether i can get him onto it
VardaValar1: I'm referring to the Tolkien name as that has to do with the guild, while his personal character name does not.
AriehnV: d accor
ArPharazonV: I don't know, my Calaron's got a lovely background story, Arien ;-)
AriehnV: i can borrow him my books if he hasnt got them
AriehnV has left the room.
ArPharazonV: And... she's off to lend her books to Helm?
VardaValar1: Or mashed the wrong button. : )
AriehnV has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Welcome back : )

Eonwe Valar: Tolkien:
Eonwe Valar: Whoever has a topic better speak up now :}
AriehnV: stupid windows , too many crosses
Eonwe Valar: OK, no one has a Tolkien topic, so you get mine :}
Eonwe Valar: Tonight, I pick the RP :}
ArPharazonV: And what about the RP would you discuss? :-)
Eonwe Valar: Has everyone had a chance to post since we arrived near the Eastern feet of the Misty Mountains?
AriehnV: has Indis responded to Fralis last post >?
AriehnV: if Meren is cunning enough he might show her the sword
Eonwe Valar: Doesn't look like it at a quick glance, Arien.
AriehnV: nah she hasnt .. well poke her :-)
AriehnV: its up to you guys where exactly you want to go with the runes or how far , maybe we can make it so that it plays in the planned main story so i t interconnects
AriehnV: it would give Frali himself a bit more a "legitimacy" to be part of the group , since it concerns his weapon , one of his main tools
VardaValar1: Indis has been traveling due to her job consulting and is probably not back home yet.
ArPharazonV: *Calion and Auros study the sword* "Auros, what do you think, Angmar runes?"
Eonwe Valar: Frali's "legitimacy" is fine to me as it is.
Eonwe Valar: Calion and Auros could do that, hehe.
VardaValar1: Frali was legitimately made a party member in Erebor.
VardaValar1: Sounds like a good conversation. : )
AriehnV: yes .. to travel to Imladris
AriehnV: but Angmar?
VardaValar1: If he's willing to help us out on this research and saving many folk from a potential new threat in our midst, Frali would be most welcome.
AriehnV: at yer service, mylady
VardaValar1: Then have no fears for your place with us!
VardaValar1: This rune information may be of service to our learning of the enemy.
Eonwe Valar: Aye, once Frali's task in Rivendell is dealt with, it's a simple matter of "There's a group going to Angmar. I'd like to be part of it" or some such.
VardaValar1: Fainan is already assuming Frali wants to come along and has as much right as she does. But Fainan's a tad impulsive. ;-)
Eonwe Valar: Maybe a quick chat with Gloin, Gloin saying "Go, have fun, etc." and you're good :}
ArPharazonV: "And don't forget to bring me back a souvenir!"
Eonwe Valar: hehe
VardaValar1: Menel, are you here?
Eonwe Valar: Guess not :} At least not "physically" hehe.
Eonwe Valar: Well, since it looks like this conversation isn't booming, let's bang the gavel and free everyone to their destinations.
Eonwe Valar: *bangs gavel*

Eonwe Valar: Aftermeeting:
Eonwe Valar: And afk for a moment.
VardaValar1: WoW gang gathering for the Sunday run. I'll head that way.
VardaValar1: Namarie
VardaValar1 has left the room.
AriehnV has left the room.
ArPharazonV: saving and sending transcript
