Chris, Cari and Layanor -
Just wanted to congratulate you all on episode 200! I’ve been listening to LOTRO Reporter for about 2 years. It, and other quality LOTRO podcasts has made my morning and afternoon commute much more enjoyable. Knowing that you all lead busy lives outside of the show, I just wanted you to know how much we appreciate the time that you dedicate to your listening audience. Thanks again for the fantastic 199 episodes, and thanks for not quitting at 200. :)
Lastly, you and other fine LOTRO podcasts inspired me to try my hand at co-hosting a LOTRO news show (Lotro Players News) and it is a blast. I think what gave me the courage to try it out (despite my previous lack of MMO, journalism or podcasting experience) was the fact that all of the podcasts I listen to feel more like a group of friends than a serious news show (that’s actually a compliment..I hope it sounded like one?). I still listen every week, but now I pay even closer attention to the nuances of the show to see if I can improve my contributions to our podcast. So, thanks for that as well!
Here’s to many more past 200!
Just wanted to drop a note to say Congrats on 200!!!
Always enjoy the show, the laughs and the fun we have in the chat.. (what happens in chat stays in chat)
We all know what happens when a LOTRO podcast hits 200.. so let’s make sure we break that curse shall we!
To 200 More!!!
Congratulations on 200 amazing episodes! You have come so far and have done so much for the LOTRO community that there is really nothing to say but thanks. Thanks for all the laughs. Thanks for all the times you have “broken” Chris. Thanks for all the giveaways you have done. Thanks for not being Canadian Layanor and Cari. Thanks for still talking to me after I sent in the attached file several episodes ago. Thanks most of all for the time you have committed to your fans and the LOTRO Community! THANKS!
PS: I think your next Kickstarter should be some pants for Layanor. Maybe by 300 he can get some?

Hey there Chris, Cari and everyone else who is a part or has been a part of MMO Reporter :)
We at Lotro Players, and the Fellowship Walk, would like to congratulate you on your 200th episode. It is quite the milestone.
Anyone who has ever been involved in a podcast, knows that it isn’t always easy scheduling the recording nor is it a 5 minute job to edit the show (for those times it isn’t live). Your dedication to keeping players involved and updated on a variety of games is a testament to yourselves and your fortitude.
Keep the episodes coming and most of all…
