Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 April 2014, 8:04 am
Not a full-fledge dragon in LOTRO, but he’s got a certain commanding presence nevertheless.  Cute, too! I never noticed this wood carving in progress before.  Neat.  Three wolf log? Jayne has seen better days.

Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 April 2014, 9:38 am
