'In the final chapters of Volume III, players will not only investigate
what happened to Isengard during the Battle of Helm's Deep but will have
the option of jumping into the shoes (roots?) of an Ent for a unique
perspective of an important character in the books. It'll be worth the
journey, if only to have a shot at obtaining the first (non-Lore-master)
cosmetic pets in the game. You read that right.'
'Cosmetic pets? It's about time! Turbine said that it's keeping it small
at first to see how the tech handles it and to gauge player reaction.
All three of the pets are quest rewards; none of them can be purchased
in the store.'

Hello all! I’m Aaron “Rowan” Campbell, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online.*
Update 13 (and LOTRO’s 7th Anniversary) are coming up soon (He said it! Not me!- Sapience).
There is a long list of new features with U13, but I want to highlight
some of the key items and the great folks that are working on them.
Epic Book: We’re going to Flooded Isengard! MadeofLions has put
together an epic experience, where you finally get to experience life as
North Downs: This is a vast and classic region. Budgeford is
digging in to modernize and improve the space, much like she’s done in
the past with Moria.
Fangorn Forest: Quickbeam needs your help! JWBarry has led the
charge to build out new quests in Southern Fangorn, including a special
friend you might earn.
In addition, mail will now support multiple attachments. VIPs will be
able to open mail in the wilderness through your mail alert. Inventory
is getting entirely new management options. And we have a new prototype
of Hobnangians that we expect to release later this year.
As Kate mentioned,
we’re pressing forward to Gondor! We’re digging in deep (but not too
deep) to continue the journey through Middle-earth. I look forward to
telling you more about our plans for 2014 and into 2015 in the near
*For those that remember me, I’ve been with LOTRO since 2006. I stepped away over the last year to run Dungeons and Dragons Online. Now I’m back in Middle-earth and thrilled to be working with the LOTRO team again.
Ignition is a kinship on the Windfola server of The Lord of the Rings Online led by Skyluin.
When you are a part of Ignition, you are a part of a community based on friendship.

Feel free to add your own posts, quotes, stories/poems (library) or whatever you would like on this site. If there is anything you would like to see or do either with this site or in-game, please don’t hesitate to contact Ignition’s leader Skyluin, our Executive Officer, Iminye or any other officer. We "sit at a round table" together, and no one persons voice has any more influence or "weight" than anothers. Whether one has been in kin for a long while or was just recruited yesterday, all are full family members and have an equal say in discussions, decision, etc.
We hope that you will enjoy a long, happy, fun-filled gaming experience with our kinship and that you will make many new friends inside the game.
See you in-game, and wish you all the best!
