    Tour of Turbine ? - For those in the Massachusetts Area

    As a 'South Shore' denizen of the Boston area, I've often wanted to go for a tour of Turbine, (and pat my server, Laurelin, on the casing).

    Does Turbine have tours, and if so...
    a) when and how do I sign up?
    b) does anyone else from the area want to come with me?

    Years ago Sapience said there were no public tours.

    I'm not sure if anything changed since then.

    Best thing to do is send a PM to Sapience and ask.
    Whoever says “I” creates the “you.” Such is the trap of every conscience. The “I” signifies both solitude and rejection of solitude. Words name things and then replace them. Whoever says tomorrow, denies it. Tomorrow exists only for him who does not seek it. And yesterday? Yesterday is Kolvillàg: a name to forget, a word already forgotten.

    Even if you can't get a tour, you might be able to stop in, say hi to +Sapience, and get a Well-Met code, but do ask in advance!

    This is an especially chaotic time, and I wouldn't just drop in.

    This would be kind of a cool thing. Even if not a tour, a meet and greet in the Boston area would be cool - I know Sapience does them when he goes to Florida so it might be possible to get one in Boston.

    Correct. We don't really do public tours. Also, the servers aren't in the office. They're in a datacenter in Boston proper. We're actually out in Metro-west.

    Usually, if I'm not too swamped, and someone gives me a heads up I can usually make this happen. You at least get to see the lobby and our epic Hollin Gate mural.
    In some cases, if you actually manage to put a group together, I might be persuaded to spend my lunch hour with the group if they don't mind meeting for lunch somewhere fairly close to the office. (no I can't buy for everyone. Sorry).

    Sort of trying to put one together for PAX East, but a lot going on before and during that time. Also, The ones I've done in Buffalo, Florida, and soon North Carolina, are actually done by someone willing to step up and say "I'll organize, find a good place that can accommodate a group and keep track of who is and isn't coming." Then I can usually find a few things (well met codes are always part of it) to bring along for those that show up. I just say "I will be in X town on X date if you want to do something." Usually I'm taking a day out of my vacation or trip to spend with players who are interested.

    How about one in NY, say the city, plenty of places to meet there

    Adding to this.. I see people mentioning Cities and I have always wondered why Turbine does not hit the conventions. I am sure there are players in each city that would man the tables for a day or 2 and only 1 employee is probably needed to transport and set up.

    There is N.Y. ComicCon
    Philly Comicon
    Chicago comicon
    Of Course San Diego Comic Con
    Mgeacon and FX in Orlando
    Miami ComicCon

    These events draw TONS of fantasy lore fans who if they go the chance to see Lotro in action and maybe got a chance to play it for a few may join up and play.

    Just a thought.
