Greetings folks and welcome to Project Conquest: Captain Landroval. This marks my first foray into Lotro video capture for a play through. Details below.
What is Project Conquest: Captain Landroval?
A short weekly video series capturing my adventures as a Captain on the Landroval server, on my way to completing the main objective which is to hit level cap, and become a member of an active, casual and fun kinship.
2 simple reasons.
- To keep me from losing interest in this game completely, I need something active to do/look forward to on a weekly basis. On my home server Riddermark, things are okay but there has been a mass exodus of players and friends from my kinship. So it does get pretty dull and lonely, and I guess I’m getting burned out about life on the Riddermark.
- Landroval. The server has been on my radar since 2011 when I first discovered the Lotro community. Landroval is well known for its community events and role-playing, both of which are almost non-existent on the Riddermark. Am I ditching the Riddermark, my Kinship and my characters? No. I will alternate between the two servers as I have done in the past. I feel like I have achieved everything I’ve wanted to on the Riddermark and its simply time for a new adventure in a different environment.
Why the Captain?
Captains are my current favorite class in the game. I love the style of play, being the jack of all trades in a supporting role. Decent DPS, heals and damage absorption. A great solo class overall, and a truly fun class to play in groups. Also, leveling a Captain can get boring and dull for some players, and through my video series I’m hoping to show players some tips on how to keep things interesting and fresh while leveling a Captain.
Why not just transfer your characters over to Landroval?
I have thought about that before. But I would be giving up too much. Firstly, the cost is ridiculous. Then, there’s my friends in the Riddermark. I may be playing both servers, but the former is my home and that will never change. I’m just looking for a new adventure.
I am definitely noobish when it comes to audio and video recording in game, so bear with me and do offer suggestions and feedback. In the pilot episode below, audio is soft, so do crank up the volume a little. Once again, to reiterate, the main objective of the project is to hit level 85 with my Captain, and join a kinship. Got a kinship suggestion on Landroval? Leave a comment. Readers, viewers and fellow gamers can submit side objectives for me to complete, and I will complete them to the best of my abilities in the following episode. It’s just for a bit of fun =) I am clearly bored here.
So without further ado, I present to you, Project Conquest: Captain Landroval Episode 1!
The pilot episode sees the creation of Captain Landroval himself, Haffleheim of Gondor, and documents his first few quests in Middle Earth. Natives of Landroval, feel free to add me to your friends list, I’d be happy to join you folks for group questing and content, and to make new friends in the process!
