    Was actually still employed back then, and coughed up the $200 for a 'lifetime subscription', so I don't have to pay a monthly fee, and still get the VIP benefits, including 500 free TP a month.

    I agree that there are some truly stunning areas.  My favorite simply to ride around in is the trollshaws, because I love the fall colours.  But if and when I ever get employed again, I want to save up for one of those laser engraving machines, and see about recreating some of the carved stonework found in the dwarven areas irl.  :)

      figuring the logistics of casting in plaster one of the pedestals that hold the dwarf banners in Moria! Candlestick size, I'm thinking. Laser engraving would be nice, but those skills go way beyond me.

      How cool to be there from day one! Two hundred is a small price to have paid for what you're getting.

      You're gonna need a bigger boat.

        Even the base machine that can only handle individual objects around 4" thick and maybe a foot across cost 8 grand with a few 'add-ons' to make it easier to use.  You really need to either be pretty rich, or willing and able to use it constantly to make a stream of things you can sell to make it worth owning.  We've got a river nearby, I can get a pretty much endless stream of river rock that could be cleaned up and carved with words and patterns if I had the engraver.
