I’ve been playing Lord of the Rings Online, or LOTRO, as it named by its fan, for over four years now, and Turbine is pretty good at fixing things for the better, especially since they gave Codemasters the boot for causing an exodus of many of its players two years ago when they made it free to play. This year, Clisair and I used some tax refund money to purchase VIP status, and it has been worth every penny.

When the Mines of Moria expansion was offered, we snatched it right up, and went to exploring with our duo team of an elven hunter and human lore-master right away. The place was very dark, very dangerous, and we were far to low in levels to even consider being in there, but being the curious cats we are, we just needed to know what was in there. The place was massive, and it was filled with so much more than the movies or the books can show you. My lore-master even accidentally traveled down the well that Pippin ran into that alerted the orcs to the Fellowship’s presence. How lucky she was that it led to the Waterworks, Moria main plumbing facility. The water landing was great, but getting past those things that lived in the water, not so much.

Sniglet Of The DayArachnoleptic fit n. The frantic dance performed just after you’ve accidentally walked through a spider web.

The term “Arachnoleptic fit” is used to describe an Arachnidiot. Juts about anyone can suffer from an Arachnoleptic fit. Those living in sterile, urban areas are less likely to have them, unless they visit the forests or countryside occasionally. Those actually living in rural areas know pretty much where spiders might spin webs, and tend to avoid this. The spiders themselves are varying in size, and can spin webs in place in some of the most unlikely places, so even the most keen arachnologist might become a victim of a sneaky spider’s web. Thus the person become entertainment to those other people and animals around them when they have an Arachnoleptic fit. They twist about, attempting to pull spider silk off their skin and face, and out of their hair in an attempt to be rid of “the creepies”. It makes the more devious and mischievous people want keep web-spinners around as pets to pulls some great Halloween pranks in unsuspecting trick or treaters with. Watch your step out there! Even though the spiders have gone dormant in the North with the arrival of winter, the spiders are still having their fun in the South. And remember, there are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 of them live in the South, plus a couple no one’s seen before.
