Chapter 16: Magic Bowl 3000

This is an unpaid advertisement brought to you by the Cook’s Guild.

Words of the Stripper:
I’ve always wanted to make a silly informercial strip. XD

In LOTRO game, when you craft cooking, all you ever do is stir the same darned bowl no matter what kind of fancy complicated dish you’re creating.
Baking a pie? Stir.
Roasting a bacon-wrapped partridge? Stir.
Cooking up an entire feast of Anorien? You get it, stir.
We definitely need more cooking emote.

I remember there being frying pan action during a festival quest. I SO want that to be an actual emote. I’d even pay for it at the store if they ever make it available!

Chapter 15: Harvest Time

Crops grow so fast in Middle-Earth!

Words of the Stripper:
Growing crops would take several months for the hobbits in Middle-Earth in real life, but thankfully in lotro, you can quickly harvest dozens of crops in mere minutes.

That NPC sure is breaking the fourth wall though!

Chapter 13: Chickening Around – Part 2

Aaaand here’s the exciting conclusion of Chickening Around, where Carica’s suffering continues! Oh, the perils of a defenseless chicken!
Save the chicken. Eat pigs instead. (Wait, what?)
Play this video for the added dramatic flair on the last panel. XD

The resemblance of the cook on the 4th panel to a certain chef in Forochel region is completely intentional coincidental.

Chapter 12: Chickening Around – Part 1

The chicken instance quests at Sandson’s Farm are surreal! I have no idea what kind of funny magic Billina is using to turn me into a chicken. She must be some sort of chicken wizard- er, gizzard…?

Words of the Stripper:
Fun fact: Birds in general has a more advanced colour receptor than humans, and they can see RGB plus UV! Thus the simulated UV-enhanced view on panel 6 and 7.
That’s right, we don’t just chicken around. We are also educational!

Also, yes, this is a 2-part story. Look out for part 2 in two weeks! 😉
