Tolkien Prof offers free LOTRO course starting today

Ever wanted someone knowledgeable about Lord of the Rings to explain the books and give you a hands-on tour of Middle-earth? Then you’re in luck, for the Tolkien Professor, Corey Olsen, is kicking off a free course today called “Explore the Lord of the Rings — on location.”

In the weekly series, Olsen will be guiding fans and players through the books, chapter by chapter, at a special lecture hall that Standing Stone Games created for the occasion in Bree. After each week’s seminar, the class will then go out into LOTRO’s game world to explore locations related to each chapter.

The first seminar will take place on Landroval at 9:30 p.m. EST (the series will rotate through the servers to give all players a chance to show up in person). There’s also the option to attend the free lectures via Twitch.
