The player-run event, which is now on its seventh year, gives players the opportunity to compete in a number of creatively devised events, such as the Spike Jump, the Broken Bone Race, and even a poetry and story contest, to earn fabulous prizes and etch their names in the annals of Harnkegger history.
In addition to the more “athletic” games, the Harnkegger Games also include a music contest, a battle of the bands of sorts in which players use LOTRO’s unique music-composition system to create and perform original songs for a panel of judges (and their adoring fans, of course). This year, 12 performers will be chosen to battle it out in a musical melee. The Harnkegger Games will be held from September 24th to September 30th.
