LOTRO Founder's Program

Mates rates and privileges.

If you show your support for Elf-kind by joining the new Founder's Program for MMO The Lord of The Rings Online, you'll be rewarded with a special USD 9.99 monthly subscription rate, or a minuscule one-off payment of USD 199.

Developer Turbine announced the "revolutionary" new scheme for US gamers today.

Those who take up the offer will also gain early access to the game via the beta test, from which you'll be able to carry your character over to retail servers when the game launches on 24th April.

Other treasures include an Enchanted Cloak of Regeneration and a Ring of Agility. In pink, we hope.

We're still waiting for confirmation of how the billing process will work in Europe.
