Casa de Syp

I’ve been meaning to show you around my meager home in LOTRO for a while now, so lazy Thursday post AWAY!

The main room of my house, looking at my front door.  Let’s overlook the fact that Turbine gives us too much dead space we can’t add anything to for the time being.  I went with a green-and-brown theme for the house to give it a forest/country look.

You get this painting for completing Volume 1, and I have to say that it was probably my favorite reward — and that includes the horsey.  I like the idea of decoration rewards that remind you of past accomplishments.

Main room, looking back.  I’m most proud of this section, just because the elements came together nicely.  Breakfast table on top of a bear rug, with mistletoe above (hey, closest to hanging herbs that I can find in the game).  In the background, another drinking table, shrew portrait, fireplace, flowers and cheese.

Another look at the table from the side.  Notice the moose.  I like the moose.

Once in a while, the mouse comes out for a nibble of cheese.

Looking into my bedroom.

I went with more dwarf furniture in my bedroom, because it just seemed to fit.  I like that you can have a different wall/floor setup here than the rest of the house.

Looking into the trophy room.  Shut up, bird, or you’ll be mounted on the wall in no time!

The trophy room.  I thought the bear on the round rug kind of worked.

I still have a few hooks available around the house, mostly thin furniture and wall.  I sincerely hope Turbine adds more hooks or options, because I have accumulated a metric ton of additional goodies to add.

    Looks good, but empty without a family/friends, which is why I never spent much time in mmo housing.

    It looks good. My main problem (well other than the hobbits barred my door and kicked me out) is that in Lotro there are only so many slots you can use. I much prefer the system used by EQ2.

    Yeah, that housing hook mechanic is TOTALLY 2001. (And it is. They used it in Asheron’s Call housing back then. In 2001 it was the shiz. Now… not so much. Cheap to nick for LOTRO though. ;))

    Hey Syp,
    The house looks a bit empty…

    Turbine needs to adopt a housing system akin to the one found in Animal Crossing. If you haven’t played, in Animal Crossing it is super easy to place furniture/ items just about anywhere. You ended up having the reverse problem that your having in LOTRO, you run out of room! Turbine really needs to accommodate the inner pack rats in all of us.

    Wow, that house is colossal. My Elven house is tiny in comparison, I can barely fit any furniture in it at all. I picked a house overlooking a river, before I knew there were no windows in the house 😛 Sigh.

    I guess it makes perfect Turbine-sense for the tall elves to have tiny houses and the stubby Hobbits to have giant houses. Sure, why not 😛

    Its hard to make the houses in LOTRO look full for some reason. I have a lot of stuff including a moria keg in one room in my hobbit house & it stills looks like it needs more furniture.

    Nice house Syp! Looks like you must have the deluxe house. I’m stuck (at the moment due to my poor money management habits) with a standard house.
