A Dwarf’s Diary – Thorin’s Hall, January 12th, 2958

‚Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu!‘ With these words your grand-grandfather charged for the dragon who tried to conquer our home, now known as Thorin’s Hall. It was a brave move and it makes him one of the bravest dwerrows in history. Unfortunately he underestimated Smaug. I won’t tell you what exactly happened to your grand-grandfather, Coroin, not until you get older, but as you probably know, Smaug was able to defeat us and it required the help of Bilbo the Hobbit and Bard the Bowman to get our home back.

I know that the old dwarf is making up many of his stories, but this time, after looking into his eyes and how he touched his beard while telling the story…I don’t know, I’m believing him this time. I just wish he would tell me what happened with my grand-grandfather when he attacked Smaug. Weiterlesen

The heartbeat – A sign for being alive.

The heartbeat - A sign for being alive.It has been quite some time since my last post. About 3 month, if I’m not wrong.

A lot happened in the world since then. Quite a few updates were released for WordPress and now I have to take care of getting up to date.

Also, my feed reader collected a few thousands of articles which I couldn’t read due to not having enough time. At least there is a button which marks them all read with one click 😉

So, what happened to me which prevented the posting of new articles or at least regular messages on twitter?

A Dwarf’s Diary – The new serial at Ruelicke.net

It is not a secret that I’m a fan of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and that I’m playing the MMORPG „Lord of the Rings Online – Shadows of Angmar„. I’m playing on the European server „[EN] Snowbourn“ with a dwarf guardian as main character and a man hunter as second main.

So if you are playing on the server, feel free to send a message to either Coruin or Coroin. Maybe we can meet in-game and do some quests or raids together. Also, my kinship is looking for members, in case you don’t have a kinship, yet.

The game means a lot of fun for me and as I have a lot of creativity I decided to give the idea of writing a diary of a dwarf and publishing it on here on a regular base. Right now I’m still preparing the pilot diary entry, so I cannot say how often I will publish diary entries per week or month.

However, let me introduce the dwarf who volunteered to show entries of his personal diary:
