I just started on Kyber last night. Checking out Free2Play before LOTRO switches over in the Autumn (northern hemisphere). Had a lot of fun, and took me back to my pen&paper d&d days... (nerd alert!)
TOG has a huge presence in LOTRO, and it's made by the same guys (Turbine). Graphics, quest content and UI are far better - it's had a lot more $$$s of dev time put into it.
You guys should all check it out when F2P goes live
You'll all be welcome in the The Osgiliath Guard (US/Oceania) or The Order of Gilthoniel (EU)!
