So if you’ve followed my blog at all (which let’s be honest you probably haven’t 🙂 ) you’ve probably figured out that each of my toons tends to have a color scheme they wear. What you probably didn’t know, is that my Lore Master’s original outfit color was purple. That’s right – you heard it – PURPLE.
However, while I wouldn’t call myself a “role-player” per say, I like to have my characters wearing outfits that are appropriate for the area and quest. And a lot of LOTRO is travelling. And in true medieval fashion, most travelling clothes are a bit more drab and…camouflagey.
So, basically, my Lore-Master ended up wearing a lot of black (and she still does). BUT! I never once forgot that I intended her to favor the color purple! So I decided to finally make her a bright, richly colored outfit befitting of a high-level sorceress! (And yes I know LMs technically don’t use magic and yada yada yada I don’t care lol)
This outfit actually fell together really quickly. I decided I wanted to use the Lore-Keeper’s Robe from the Barad Guldur raid, and after that everything just fell into place. The shoulder piece is actually one I’ve been wanting to use for the longest time but never found the right outfit. I was, of course, planning to make an accompanying warsteed outfit, but it was going to be something plain and derivative until I realized that the caparison of summer’s night went perfectly with the oufit as well, and now I’m a little obsessed.
Anyways, so this outfit was quick, fun, and painless. It even gave me a reason to revisit Elrond’s library for the first time in a while.
Unfortunately not everyone seemed to share my excitement.
Outift: Shoulders: Fortified Shoulders of the Five Rivers (purple) Chest: Lore-Keeper's Robe (purple) Feet: Lesser Boots of Dunlammad (sienna) ---- honestly I don't care about the shoes in this one. These were inconspicuous and out of the way. Staff: Gleaming Staff of Fate
Warsteed: Head: Head-Piece of the Northern Herald (purple) Body: Caparison of Summer's Night (purple) Saddle: Saddle of Gondor Legs: Light Leggings of the Norcrofts (purple) Tail: Tail of the Gloaming Autumn (my default tail for my LM's warsteed)
