    Arkenstone Equestrian Federation

    Greetings Arkenstone,

    There are alot of Equestrian enthusiasts out there and I think it time to organize the Arkenstone Equestrian Federation.

    My vision is to have a board of developers/directors comprised of members of multiple kinships to organize large equestrian events on our most awesome server!

    First thoughts were for a large series of horse races... Breetown Derby, Shire Run, etc. and to run a championship race during a promenent lotro holiday... the Arkenstone Cup. Significant prizes to be awarded to the winners.

    Barrel racing circuit could also be fun, as well as breed shows, parades, etc.

    Anyone interested in helping to organize and found this organization, please pm me or contact me in-game (Calddir).

    Feel free to post your thoughts in a thread here...:-)

    Thanks and Ride Safe,

    Calddir

    Sounds interesting, and I could have seen it working back when all mounts were the same speed. Now that mounts can be different speeds, however, are horse races still viable? Would you restrict what horses can be used, or give certain players a strong up-front advantage?

    ^^This

    and also, slower versions of the steeds are becoming available in the store, so there's no way to know which version the player has :-(

    I wish the horse showed as slotted in the character panel, so it could show when inspected.

    Oh yes, we would have to make brackets for steeds of various speeds to maintain fairness... Could be a bit tricky with identical steeds coming out in the store, but, could be worked out I am sure..:-)

    Ill get a preliminary website up as soon as I can..:-)
