A Fond Farewell To Merric and Goldenstar

"Go in peace! I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil."
- Gandalf

A few days ago, Merric and Goldenstar of A Casual Stroll to Mordor announced their departure from their weekly Lotro podcast. The event will take place on their 200th episode, set to air on June 29th. Tears were indeed shed on my part. I can honestly say these two were one of my biggest influences to start blogging about The Lord of the Rings Online, and continue to be so even now. The podcast filled the Lotro community with vibrancy and will be sorely missed by everyone. The episodes will be taken down toward the end of the year, but the site (hosted by will remain up indefinitely. 
If this couple has made an impact on your Lotro experience, go over and wish them a fond farewell.
Thank you so very much, Merric and Goldenstar, for all you have done!
