Not all is sweetness and light in the LOTRO music world. On Gwaihir the viscious turf war between Instant Play, on one side, and Bert Bartleby and Old Rattlepacks on the other, continues unabated. While Old Rattlepacks looks like he is about to eat Miss Threva’s hat, it is Master Loplyn I am most worried about. He is standing at the dangerous end of Old Rattlepacks.
On Thursday 22nd September 2016 the Brago Brothers, Bragomur and Bragomus, were the guest band at the fortnightly Die Monbarden concert on the Belegaer server in LOTRO. The band are new on the music scene, having only played in front of an audience for the first time at the Night of the Muses on Laurelin the previous night. To mark the occasion I thought I would post some screen shots I took at the concert.
On Friday 9th September 2016, on the Laurelin server in LOTRO, Green Dragon Friday moved, for one week only, to the Floating Log Inn.

On Thursday 15th September 2016, on the Laurelin server in LOTRO, the weekly Bird and Baby Yard Party was Struck by Moonlight.

The band played the first three songs as a trio.

Master Whye, who describes himself as “a brilliant scholar, superb weaponsmith, exclusive berry supplier to Miss Holly Hornblower, excellent wordsmith, virtuoso musician, genius and modest to boot”, has got a bee in his bonnet.
ARGH! It’s almost enough to make a dwarf give up ale. Almost mind you, almost. Every time I try to pick some berries to feed a starving cave-claw, on a selfless mission of mercy with no thought of personal gain, some darn elf beats me to it.
