So this is my new project – an attempt to illustrate some of the quest stories within lotro. I really enjoy the epic quests, the stories are compelling and its just great having an over-arching storyline which continues as you level and explore new areas. However, I found it was easy to lose track of the story and to miss some of the detail as we tended to do the epic questline either along with other quests in the area or were running quickly through in order to catch up. So I wanted to set out some of the stories in a sort of graphic novel fashion (which seemed um… ‘sensible’… given my penchant for screenshots and my utter crapness at coming up with an original idea ). The first one I’m attempting is the Tale of the Red Maid, which is a really interesting story and I never got to see the conclusion as the questline completes in Garth Agarwen.
NB. The text is partly quoted directly from the quests themselves, partly adapted text from the quests and some original dialogue. The questline is from the epic questline, The Tale of the Red Maid and is concluded through quests in Agamaur and Garth Agarwen. All screenshots from Lord of the Rings online (I have played around with saturation, contrast etc a little).
