Goodbye Riddermark, Hello Landroval

Yesterday was the day for Riddermark to transfer to a remaining server of your choice. I did decide to move Landroval. I've been wanting to play on Landy for a long time now.. I'm there now from Riddermark!
The transfers were successful!

I forgot and left 2 of my Riddermark toons inside the home... after the transfers the 2 toons were inside another players house! LOL! It's not a problem - I just hope they didn't mind drinking some of their ale for the Inn League Keg they had. ;)

Glondif "steals" a drink or 4!

 Glondif passes out.

He awoke inside the Forsaken Inn (Lone Lands). What happened? LOL

Phayel drank from the keg too. She awoke in Angmar!

What a fun time they both must have had... but dang it those hang overs are ruff!

One toon had to change her name - which is not a big deal. Turbine gave us a free name change just in case we needed it. Charwin found her name to be Charwin-1 after the transfers. I used the name change token to change her name to Charrwin (I just doubled the "r" in her name and it works for me). 

All of my other toons could keep their names. I'm just extremely glad that Taure could keep his name. That name is important to me - I feel extremely lucky. He's the namesake of this particular blog!

We had to purchase a new house. I decided to move one door down from where I was on the Riddermark server. Love the new house.

Taure overlooking his new home.

The ONLY thing I could not find after the transfers was Taure's bed. That's not a big deal, he can get another one.
Taure stares in the empty room upstairs.

He decides to sleep on the rug and dreams of his new bed.

All in all - the transfers were successful for me. I had one minor problem Taure's missing bed and, as I already said, it's not a big deal. One free name change - not a big deal. And two toons that got to enjoy some Inn League Ale! I had a lot of fun with the transfers. Looking forward to playing on Landroval!

Sweet dreams Taure. You'll get a new bed soon.

Server Consolidation Announcement

It's here! The LotRO servers are merging. We have a small delay in US server transfers that may begin again tomorrow.

UPDATE: US Transfers delayed:
“After monitoring and encountering some non-transfer related difficulties this afternoon, we are going to delay the opening of the cross-world transfers between the US servers:
Brandywine (off world only), Gladden, Landroval, Crickhollow, Arkenstone.
We hope to have these available for you tomorrow.
Thank you for your patience!”

The producer also stated there will be a free period of transfers to Brandywine in the future:
“We will give at least 30 days of free moves to Brandywine once it is available for transfers on to it from the other remaining US worlds, as we are doing with the other servers. As for timeline, rough estimate is Fall. The new hardware is in build out stage now, but it is not a short process and a number of factors could affect timelines on it being ready to go."

The Launch

The In-Game Letter:

Now to make up my mind: Do I go back to my old server Arkenstone or to Landroval where all the player festivals are? Both are good servers... I'll decide and will transfer from Riddermark soon. :D
