Welcome to the Bearded Minstrel!


My name is Gonz, and I am the bearded minstrel. I have been playing Lord of the Rings Online for over 10 years and have been a fan of Tolkien for even longer!

While I can recite the lore of the world backwards, forwards, and sideways, I know very little about the lore created by Turbine and SSG. As an MMO-nut, I often skipped reading the quests, something I now regret!

The purpose of this blog is to tell the beautiful stories of the Lord of the Rings Online,  to be preserved for as long as possible.

I will update this blog as often as possible, so I hope you join me on my adventure through Middle Earth!


  1. This site seems simply amazing!

    I, too, play as a Minstrel frequently - Grimwether of Dale.

    LOTRO is a terrific game and I am excited to see how this blog fares!
