In Your Face

Hello from Beannighe

When I fantasize about improvements to LOTRO, I imagine a more contemporary character creator/editor with far greater modeling control over one’s avatar’s face and body than was typical when LOTRO was launched.

Nevertheless, LOTRO’s avatars have an interesting range of expressive animation, more subtle than gross in movement, which makes it possible, with patience and persistence, to capture some surprising glimpses of unexpected personality peering back at you through the wireframe.
