You have just entered room "valarguildmeetingplace."
Eonwe Valar has entered the room.
Eonwe Valar: Heya.
ArPharazonV: Aiya
Eonwe Valar: Well if this is all we're getting tonight, it's going to be a very quick meeting, hehe.
ArPharazonV: Trouble with holidays.
Eonwe Valar: Aye, understandable.
Eonwe Valar: Well let's begin then :}

Eonwe Valar: Elen Sila Lumenn Omentielvo!
Eonwe Valar: Membership:
Eonwe Valar: Varda and Fangorn are visiting Fangorn's dad.
Eonwe Valar: Eowyn is off on a cruise.
Eonwe Valar: Easter is today, so Happy Easter :}
ArPharazonV: Happy Easter to you too!
Eonwe Valar: Don't suppose you have any Membership news?
ArPharazonV: No, not that I know of.
Eonwe Valar: You don't know if you have membership news? :}
ArPharazonV: Could be some around that's slipped my mind, I guess.
Eonwe Valar: OK, hopefully that's a sign that all is well with you :}
ArPharazonV: Hehe, I'd probably know about it if it wasn't ;-)
Eonwe Valar: Nothing exciting, but nothing bad either, hehe :}

Eonwe Valar: Web:
Eonwe Valar: Nothing to announce, always stuff going on in the background, hehe.

Eonwe Valar: Gaming:
Eonwe Valar: WoW:
Eonwe Valar: Darkmoon Faire over, Noblegarden going.
Eonwe Valar: Good luck getting 500 chocolates together to get the mount, with all the people harvesting the eggs right now.
ArPharazonV: Tried it. Ended up looting the mount after about 200 eggs.
Eonwe Valar: hehe
Eonwe Valar: I was up to 80 chocolates, then turned in the quest. So 430 more, or a lucky RNG, to go :}
Eonwe Valar: I read on the forum someone got the mount from an egg at 499. Now that's torturous.
ArPharazonV: Trick these days is to find a good spawnspot and camp it out, apparently :-) Made my success with a position behind a wall in Kharanos where I could reach 4 eggspots without even moving, and all visible without turning the camera.
ArPharazonV: Haha, yes, we wondered what to do if that should happen. But you can then get an egg more, buy 5 rabbit pets, and sell them on the AH later in the year :-)
Eonwe Valar: I did that in Azue Watch. Least competition I could find in any of the zones, and it was still packed.
Eonwe Valar: Hmm, the rabbit pets aren't soulbound?
Eonwe Valar: *Azue in the previous sentence should be Azure.
ArPharazonV: They're not, no. Bought one for the eggs I already had, after getting the mount, and put him in the guildbank for one of my alts.
Eonwe Valar: That gives me ideas....
ArPharazonV: And one person I knew kept looting them, ended up with half a dozen rabbits or so before reaching the 500 chocolate for the mount.
ArPharazonV: Sent them to all her alts :-)
Eonwe Valar: Hehe, lucky lucky.
Eonwe Valar: :}
ArPharazonV: Mount is soulbound, though.
Eonwe Valar: Not surprising.
ArPharazonV: Yep, still, just thought I'd make it clear.
Eonwe Valar: Aye, good idea.
Eonwe Valar: Never know who's reading this on the News, they might just need that bit of info :}
Eonwe Valar: Lothar:

AriehnV has entered the room.
AriehnV: aiya there :-)
ArPharazonV: Aiya!
AriehnV: still semi afk harassing horde and happy easter :-D
ArPharazonV: Happy easter
ArPharazonV: We're on Gaming, WoW, Eonwe was just about to embark on Lothar-reports.
AriehnV: Ah right Arienwyn has entered the row of the guys who are about to help the rohyrimm [note: LotRO]
AriehnV: meaning she is 65 and got the expansion now :-)
Eonwe Valar has left the room.
Eonwe Valar has entered the room.
Eonwe Valar: Am I back?
ArPharazonV: Yes.
AriehnV: happy help from various people in the guild inclujding Maedhros , Hurin and Melkor
Eonwe Valar: Good.
AriehnV: and yes ur back
Eonwe Valar: Thanks and Heya :}

Eonwe Valar: OK, to pick up where I left off with the Sunday WoW run...
Eonwe Valar: Bilbo, Varda, Eonwe, and Eowyn went into Icecrown Citadel 10-man, gave a couple of heroic modes a try, but didn't quite make it. We did, however, get through 7 out of 12 bosses on normal mode.
Eonwe Valar: We stopped before trying Rotface.
ArPharazonV: Last thing you said in the chatroom was "Lothar:"
Eonwe Valar: Hmm, my last words on my screen were "Sunday Run"
ArPharazonV: Not for me.
Eonwe Valar: EIther way, that's the report for the Sunday run.
ArPharazonV: Allright.
Eonwe Valar: So we got down the first four bosses, the Blood Council, Blood Queen Lana'thel, and Festergut. Some of us picked up "Once Bitten,Twice Shy" in the process of killing the BLood Queen.
Eonwe Valar: Friday Run: Unfortunately I once again missed the Friday run, so I have nothing to report.
Eonwe Valar: Earlier in the week though, I did manage to solo the 3 Frozen Halls heroic dungeons as both Prot and Ret. Except for the retreat from the Lich King, Halls of Reflection went smoother as Prot, hehe.

Eonwe Valar: LotRO:
Eonwe Valar: (Reports by Varda directly from the News Page)
Eonwe Valar: Monday 8pm EDT scheduled run: Limlight Gorges dailies for afternoon and evening groups, quick runs completed.

Eonwe Valar: Diablo 3: The D3 Launch Site is now up and active.
Eonwe Valar: You have to verify you're old enough to visit it when you try to access it.
ArPharazonV: Yep. If you check back every week you can earn sigils for certain classes for a banner when the game releases. Not sure about the system myself. Not even sure if I'm gonna get the game. But I'm going for the sigils anyway.
Eonwe Valar: You should go to your regions particular site, but for the US, it's
Eonwe Valar: The "Darkness Falls, Heroes Rise" site that awards you the sigils for doing stuff.
Eonwe Valar: Any other gaming news?

AriehnV: Arienwyn 65 through half Mirkwood and ready for the Great River and Rohan [note: LotRO]
Eonwe Valar: Cool :}
AriehnV: with kind help of Hurin , Andwe, Melkor and Irmo

ArPharazonV: I've gotten a new game this week, though the multiplayer is limited to several people on one pc with keyboard and gamepads from what I can see
ArPharazonV: Rayman Origins
ArPharazonV: Being a fan of the Rayman series, I just had to pick it up, and it's good fun, a bit of a combination of the first 3 games, when it comes to characters and story.
ArPharazonV: Also, a couple of flashgames done.
Eonwe Valar: I haven't done any real gaming besides WoW and LotRO in a while, hehe.
Eonwe Valar: If there's no other gaming, I think we can move to Tolkien :}

Eonwe Valar: Tolkien:

Eonwe Valar: Something from Bilbo that Varda put up on the News page.
Eonwe Valar: Neat item of the day from Bilbo-(V): The original name for Bilbo was Bilba Labingi. The Peoples of Middle-earth "The Appendix on Languages"

Eonwe Valar: I've no Tolkien topic off the top of my head, and most everyone who shows up appears to be celebrating Easter or have other business right now, so unless you two have something Tolkien-related you want to discuss, we can bang the gavel.

ArPharazonV: Well, I could link you to the new pictures for the Hobbit movie that Peter Jackson released?
Eonwe Valar: Sure.
ArPharazonV: try this, see if it works
AriehnV: nope this one doesnt work
Eonwe Valar: Worked for me.
AriehnV: wrong does :-)
Eonwe Valar: :}
ArPharazonV: ah, great :-)
Eonwe Valar: I look forward to seeing the Hobbit in 3D.

ArPharazonV: Aiya
Eonwe Valar: Heya Indis.
Eonwe Valar: We're in Tolkien Chat. No specific topic, was contemplating banging the gavel.
karakedi25: I guess you haven't had a chance to post in the RP yet.
Eonwe Valar: Not yet. Trying to make sure I do ELron'ds part right.
Eonwe Valar: *Elrond's
Eonwe Valar has left the room.
Eonwe Valar has entered the room.
Eonwe Valar: OK, that was fun.
Eonwe Valar: Did I miss anything since my correcting Elrond's?
ArPharazonV: No.
Eonwe Valar: ok.
karakedi25: I'm looking forward to seeing (and reacting to) what you write. I intend to take Meren around Imladris and to the library etc., but I'll need to wait until the audience with Elrond is done.
karakedi25: 0h3n;1wM
karakedi25: um...mistype
karakedi25: sorry about that
Eonwe Valar: Happens :}
karakedi25: I'm a klutz on the keyboard sometimes.
