The Harnkegger Games VII is HERE!

The Harnkegger Games is back on Laurelin for its seventh year running!

Once again we treat the adventurers of Middle-Earth to a week full of exciting games, with a stunning 13.000 Lotro Points* and 3500 in-game gold up for grabs! Thanks to the generosity of the Laurelin Player Community, the members of Durin's Folk, The Shire Angling Club, The Blue Mountains regiment and the good people at Standing Stone Games

*Which could be more depending on Harnkegger Records Broken! (This year record breakers can once again earn 100 Lotro Points!)
