Lulzy gets naked. What, like we have to say anything more than that?

Even though most of the quests look insane, I think I'd still prefer them to kill 10 xyz's.

Great work as all ways!

Why is it in fiction that dying people always have some long dying speech to give?

Because it is how they lead the character onto an epic quest of revenge and killing....also because they want to be a main character lol

Yeah, even thought it's still the same old "kill 10 xyz's, collect 10 xyz's", at least it's disguised in a hillarious fashion.

I'm wondering if they've put this kind of effort into the quests after the starting zones, though...

Brilliant as always.. wednesday is now my checking on the escapist day, and i have to say it's mainly because of this.

N i loved the comic you linked to.. those face shots were actually perfect :D

Woot! Are we gonna see some Nazguls? Can't wait!

Power Rangers yeeeeaaah

Well Shamus those guys had properly matching outfits you must be the poorest hobbit in the shire.

Anyone else think that Black Rider is just going to be a guy in a costume terrorizing the locals just to see if it's scary or not?

you had me at "Lulzy gets naked" funny as usual, waiting for some epic combat.

Damn it, I was looking forward to Nasguls (is that how you spell it?) but now you say that... sounds alot more likely lol.

I adore this series, every single week they are awesome!

Why yes, yes they do! It's the strong point of the game.

I always like it when you put a song in there

It's a grand tradition dating back 19th Century opera, when any character dying of consumption was expected to sing a 20-minute aria before keeling over from auditory shock due to thunderous applause. Poisonings were only good for 15 minutes, and stabbings were relatively quick (and merciful to the audience) at a mere 10.

I laughed so hard I nearly wet myself. I love Wednesdays because of these.

That was a smart way to introduce DMotR here, Shamus ;) Also, loved the arrows picture. :)

They're all wearing the same hat. Why are they all wearing the same hat!?

Madness.

Also maybe this is just my personal hobby-horse but I'd like to see a western RPG where wolves AREN'T generic slavering hellbeasts that have nothing better to do than to try and eat your face.

Are you telling me that you WOULDN'T wear that hat? That you'd choose a DIFFERENT hat? That's madness!

Also, the wolves in LOTRO are generally your run-of-the-mill wolves. Wargs are the generic slavering hellbeasts.

Lulzy had groupies! Thats the life of a travelling minstral for you.

And now you must bring me... A SHRUBBERY!

I loved Lulzy's indignant emote when she realized the other hobbits. Matching hats yes.

Hahaha, loved this post, especially the part about hobbit Power rangers........almost makes you wonder........

"I take the journal back to Wilimar.

Yeah. You can't look in the backpack. You can't take the bow. The only thing you can do is swipe the torn and completely unreadable book."

"Do you people MIND? I'm trying to roleplay here and you guys just...

Hey. Blue. Purple. Green. We're just a couple of Hobbits short of being able to make our own Power Rangers team. Either of you two know someone in yellow or red that could join us?"

Shamus, this article is always hilarious, keep it up :)

EDIT:

"Why were you shooting arrows before you were ready?" I ask him. I can't believe I'm giving this advice. Poor Callum must be new to killing. I found it takes a while to get the hang of it, although I was never foolish enough to attack someone in a populated area when they were inside a building and I wasn't ready for a fight. It's a rookie mistake of legendary proportions. Assassins for years will be telling the story of the guy who left his weapon and ran away after he attacked a door with his only arrow.

Epic^

So now, I wonder.... will Lulzy vanquish the black rider for Honor, Glory and Pies...

Or will she instead step aside, like someone elses flies.

Brilliant! I cracked up at the diary entry, and was prepared to say that was the best part. But it turns out the rest was also the best part. Whole thing purely made of best part.

Thanks for the extra Lord of the D&D comic. It will stave me until part 16 is out :D

The title had me hooked. Great series.

Mostly the hobbit quests are the ridiculous ones. Although pretty much every starting area has some odd ones.

I just started playing again and I partially blame you. Although it's not such a bad thing, except for the money.

I believe I found something new to follow. This had me in fits.

Going to go read the others now. Au revior!

This game looks totally batshit crazy.

"Lulzy gets naked."

haha well it was bound to happen sooner or later
