I have seen the future of LOTRO F2P, and that future is WoW!?! What do I mean by that? Listen and all will be revealed! We discuss the lifting of the beta NDA last week, and why one of us has second thoughts about being in the beta. We also dissect a huge controversy about certain LOTRO Store items from the beta, and whether they cross the line of convenience, not advantage.

European Correspondent Xusia brings you the news from across the pond! Mithlas brings us another excellent installment of Lorefix! And we are happy to premiere the first gold-tips segment from Drilorin of Through the Palantir! Plus we bring you the Community Calendar, New Player Question, Poll Results, Fansite Focus and, of course, much, much more!
