For those of you who want to get a more hands on look at the new things Turbine is working on for LOTRO and help shape them going forward, you might want to check out Kehleyr’s thread announcing the application process for their preview server, called Isengard. Content will appear on this server prior to other processes including betas and the Bullroarer server.
A few things to keep in mind, you are expected to submit bugs and help test new content. You should also be prepared for things to not always be finished 😉 And probably the most important part is that you must be willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Lots of information in the thread, so if you’re interested make sure to check it out.
And one sad note, currently they are only accepting folks from the Turbine servers and NOT Codemasters servers 😦 but that link provides a couple ideas for you guys as well.
