I got LOTRO all patched up last night while EVE was going through patch-hell, and goofed around on my ‘lil Champion.  Dunno what it is about that class, but I love bashing stuff with my shield.  It has such a satisfying “thump” when you smack things with a big shield.  And I don’t feel like I’m gonna die if anything looks at me funny, which is so very unlike my “main” Loremaster. 

After I marched him through all the intro stuff and the first little town after, I checked back with EVE and she was finally ready to play. So I logged in there and mined out a belt before retiring for the evening.  All in all, a good evening gaming, if I do say so myself. 

I’m not sure which game is going to end up garnering most of my free time – unless I can find some folks to hang out with in LOTRO, it’ll probably be EVE since I can solo there quite effectively. But who knows, I’ve yet to get back in contact with my “old time” LOTRO buddy to see if he’s still in-game or not.  And that may have quite a bit of bearing on where I spend my time.  Dunno, just playing it by ear for now, we’ll see how it goes.  Enjoy!
