Some of you may recall a podcast from a couple years ago called “Secrets of Lord of the Rings”. I’m very happy to inform everyone that this project is getting a re-boot and is now going by the name “Secrets of of Middle-earth” hosted by Father Roderick.
What they do is visit one or two places in LOTRO and do a sound-seeing tour. They talk about the lore behind the game and hopefully provide both entertainment and information! There is also a uStream video in LOTRO that goes with the show. The head adventurer is a Catholic priest who is also an avid gamer, but the focus is not on religion. Everyone should be able to enjoy it!
I have to say that I am personally excited to see this podcast return as I had listened to it previously. Listening to the show and hearing the LOTRO sounds behind it really helps me appreciate the atmosphere and realism that Turbine has put into this game simply with the sound files. In the most recent episode (#11) you can tell when the line has been crossed from the Greenway into the Fields of Fornost!
I really suggest you give it a try! It’s great information being told while using our favorite game!
