After a few days mehq.net seems to be back with their amazing dynamic LOTRO maps. They have been moving to a new server and the switch didn't go as smooth as hoped, but the most important news is that they are now back with a slick new look. We wish them a successful and visit-full relaunch.

Getting to Rivendel was no small feat for a lowly level 21. The lands in between feature ~ lvl 35 monsters of which some are elite.
