    If you are interested stick a post up in the LOTRO forum and someone might be able to mail you a DVD or two :)

    Like Markan said, pop a post in the LoTRO forums and I'm sure someone near to you will be able to send you a copy of their current Game folder.
    I'd do it but coming from NZed might not get there eh. ;)

    thanks for the suggestions, but I have a small HDD, and its was partition, making it even less space.
    I need to find a way to get some extra $ to purchase a bigger one, but that has to wait.

    never fails, when I have the money, I just don't have the time, and when I have the time, I just have no money
    I can squeeze in 5-6 gigs and be ok, but 10 or now seeing 13+, well no way, not on this HDD

    The TOG kinship is on Elendilmir I'm afraid.

    If you are a TOG member though feel free to join in the chat in the LOTRO forums which the kinship on Elendilmir share with the European Kinship on Evernight.

    I hope you enjoy the game though :)

    They are on Elendilmir with the Americans. EU has separate servers so we are the only ones that aren't on Elendilmir :)

    Lone Lands Quest Pack on special for 50 Turbine Points.

    That's over 100 quests for approx 50cents. With the free region and Lone lands pack you would easily get enough points in game to get more packs to keep playing.

    Also announced has been the opening of the Epic quest line to include Moria, Lothlorien, and Mirkwood for free, in the November patch.
    If you were thinking of jumping in, now would be a great time to get started for zero $$, and be able go a long way in the game.

    Markan: which server are the european member on?

    I ask because I'd love to be a part of the Guard also in Middle Earth, having played Lotro for a short while at release (I gave up because my pc at the time couldn't handle the game).
    But now since its F2P it might be fun to play on occasion next to my main game (being Mortal Online).

    Our presence on the EU servers is The Order of Gilthoniel on Evernight. Do pop down to the LOTRO forums and say hi as well :)

    I think there will be a few people taking a look (or a re-look) now that it is F2P :)
