Screenshot of the Week
The screenshot this week is of Stellanor at the Mouths of Entwash, Far Anorien. An old shot, taken before LOTROs avatar update, and Stella’s personal favourite. Submitted by Stella.

We invite you all to submit your screenshot. A place, your character, a costume, whatever you want. Please send screenshots to or send to Juls through Discord message.

New Members
Please extend your warmest welcome to Tyrothir. A level 77 Minstrel that joined the Gnomes on November 22nd 2020.

Please keep an eye on our discord channels for any events planned. As the festive period approaches, and people get busy with that, we may see less in the way of events involving larger numbers of players. If there is anything that you wish to do in game, please reach out to one of the officers with a suggestion.

Server Events
Hobnanigans will run from Thursday December 3rd through Monday December 7th. Grab a pole and play some chicken golf.

Congratulations to Milathor for completing Shelob T2 and obtaining the Bane of Ungwetari title. Well done Chris.
