    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    Another 60 images updated or posted including:

    - All Floor Colors (using the Hardwood Flooring as a neutral background)
    - All Wall Colors (using Woodpanel Plaster as a neutral background)
    - All Floor Surfaces
    - All Wall Surfaces

    The above wouldn't have been possible without a generous donation from Hakiem and another from Gertrude, both of Windfola.

    I think I may be at close to the 75% point on images. Looking forward to having it complete. All donations and suggestions are welcome, but please make sure that your house really has something I haven't screenshot before you post the location.

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    Please note that the third post now has a list of everything I still need. Some of these are rep items that I couldn't get even if I were rolling in gold, so I'll need help tracking down where they might be. Please note that Dwarven statues placed in Dwarven yards don't help much since the lighting is so dim.

    Thanks everyone for their support on this project.

    Myn, I've been meaning to get back to your kin hall. I lost all the shots I took of your house with an accidental push of the "Delete" key. Thanks for reminding me.

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    lol sorry i kept missing you earlier... BG got a bit messy :P but our kinhall is still open to you if you need more pix... and if we can catch each other when i'm not spamming heals in an instance... i'd be more than happy to come move some furniture around so you can get better shots

    i had more stuff but i just sold them yesterday to make room in the kinhall storage... if there's anything you really want, i'll stop by the NPCs or AH and grab them before you come over for a nice frosty ale

    ale + camera = hmm.... don't tell my hubby! lol j/k

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    I've just put another 20 pictures up...with only 17 items left to go (3 of which I simply forgot to buy off the housing vendors). That leaves 14 rep items and the site is done (except maybe for MP3's of the housing music, but I don't want to host those locally).

    Everyone's help with this project is much-appreciated.

    Down to 5 items now, but I'm cheating a bit on the chandeliers. I can't find any houses where they look good enough for a decent screenshot.

    Very nice Rain. One small error I noticed was one of your pic of the Bentwood Scholar's bookshelf was actually of the other one. Other then that very nice, I particularly like the wall/floor stuffs.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. The picture there is actually of the Scholar's Pointed bookshelf - which is also pictured a couple spots down on the same page.

    Great progress, though. Awesome guide.

    I'm starting to work on some other guides, so I've redone the site directory structure.

    If you've linked to the guide from this site please use one of these links:

    Hello,
    I have a floorplan for the kinhouses in Bree-housing, done up in Excel. After visiting over a dozen kinhouses, I have hook placements and types for each room. How can I get this info to you? I'm on the Silverlode server, character is Ioan.

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    Apparently as an extra bonus, LOTRO includes the ability to feel exceptionally dense for only a gold.

    I bought a house. I walked in the house with my rug & my tree. How do I place the rug in the house? I tried dragging it, using it, etc. No effect.

    How do I buy storage for the house? who sells it? WHat is it called?

    SirGaldalfi told me that Rain's housing guide answered all these things, but all I see is a page with links to pictures.


    Normally when I want to feel stupid, I just consult my children, my boss or my ex-wife. LOTRO homeownership will make it easier than ever for me to feel like a complete dunce. Oh joy.

    On the circle surrounding your minimap, at about the 7 o'clock position there is a "decorating" tab. Click it when you're at your house. Then right click on a housing "hook" that you want to use. You'll get a pop-up window with a slot that looks a bit like an inventory slot. Drag an appropriate item from you invo to that slot (not to the "hook" in your house, but to the slot in the pop-up dialogue box).

    The vendor area in your neighborhood will have a housing vendor NPC. They'll sell, IIRC, a housing chest (might be called "red chest"?). You can buy one for standard house, 2 for deluxe. Equip it in your house.

    All of this was pre Book 12 so if there were any changes your mileage could vary, but I didn't see anything in the Release Notes that would seem to change this.

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    Sorry you couldn't find the housing info you wanted.

    For a Game Manual addendum about housing:
    1) First, to www.LOTRO.COM
    2) On the left side, mouse over "About LOTRO"
    and click on "Game Manual"
    3) You'll see "LOTRO Manual Addendum is now available" and click on the "download it by clicking here".
    4) You'll now be able to read about housing in the Game Manual, where it answers =some= of your questions.

    ANOTHER way for help while playing the game is to press F7 the HELP key, or ESC then Help. Then type in the word Housing. There is a full explaination of what to do, etc. Very handy.

    By the way, for detailed quest help, see both www.thebrasse.com and www.mehq.net -- excellent sources so that you don't have to spend needless time trying to find the object of the quest! It has saved me countless hours of wandering around. 8>)
