re: Rider Interviews

I really enjoy reading these, it's great to see how other people feel about this game and how they see the things that they experience in it.

Keep up the good work. ;)

re: Interview Questions

Calling all riders!

I'd like to start adding rider interviews to the bi-weekly newsletters.

Please take a moment to reply to the following questions. (IC or OOC is fine, just specify which you are doing.) You can pick the set for racers or formation riders, or customize your own questions.

I will need a screenshot of you (on or with your mount) that is at least 600 pixels wide and 400 pixels high. Please post the URL, the photo, or email it to kiralynn@roll3d6.com

Thank you!

==========================================================================

Horse Racer Questions

* Who are you and where are you from?

* What is your horse's name and breed?

* What made you choose this horse from your stable above all the others?

* What inspires you to race horses?

* What was your biggest race and what was it like to participate in it?

* How do you train before each race?

* What are your racing strengths and weaknesses?

* What advice would you give to new, inexperienced riders?

* Is there anything else you would like everyone to know about you?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Formation Rider Questions

* Who are you and where are you from?

* What is your favorite horse's name and breed?

* What do you like best about formation riding?

* What is the biggest equestrian event you have participated in? How did it go?

* How do you train before each performance?

* What are your riding strengths and weaknesses?

* What advice would you give to new, inexperienced riders?

* Is there anything else you would like everyone to know about you?

re: Fashion Features

Calling all riders!

I'd like to start adding a "Featured Fashions" to the bi-weekly newsletters.

Do you have a riding outfit to show off? We'd love to see it!

Please post with the names of the items that make up your outfit, along with the color each of them has been dyed.

I will also need a high-resolution screenshot of you (on or with your mount) that is at least 600 pixels wide and 400 pixels high. Please post the URL, the photo, or email it to kiralynn@roll3d6.com


Here are some tips:

* Day shots - The best screenshots are taken during in-game day. The sun should be behind you, shining brightly on your character.

* Night shots - Every character has a built in lantern. You can activate your lantern with Alt + F10. Press it once for a strong light, again for a weak light, and one more time to turn it off. The lantern works best if you are inside a small space, such as a gazebo. You should also stand with a light source behind you, such as a street lamp or window.

* You can adjust your graphics and interface settings by going into Options... Graphics. You can press Escape (ESC) to make the Options button appear.

* Model detail and texture quality are very important. Long-distance landscape options are less important.

* In the Options panel, turn off Quest and Other Icons that float above NPCs.

* Press "N" to turn off floating names.

* Make sure you are not targeting anything, otherwise a ring will appear on the ground and the lighting will be off.

* Make sure the background behind your character is interesting.

* Consider using an emote for an interesting pose.

* Zoom in as close as possible, while still keeping all of your subject on screen.

* Press F12 to turn off the user interface.

* Use the F11 and Print Screen (PrtScn) keys to take the screenshot.

* When you take a screenshot, you'll see a notification and the file name in your chat window.

* The screenshot will appear in My Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online folder.
