Hi there, it's Ravanel. I'm a gamer girl playing Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) and Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO). I'm also crazy with taking screenshots and finally found the perfect way to get rid of them: through this blog!
The pictureYup, this is not actually me, but you can pretend it is. It vaguely resembles me in real life anyway. I did skip the body type 1 and emo makeup stuff, though!

History of a gamer girlMy start in the gaming world was due to my fandom of Tolkien. When I heard an online game featuring Middle-earth (LotRO) was being developed, I was extremely excited. I had never played an MMO before, but I made many gamer friends and ended up in a raiding kinship. I also joined the Lotro-wiki team in 2009, and became a bureaucrat. LotRO has been very important to me, being the first MMO I played, but also being the place where I met my boyfriend. In the four year period that it did not release any new raids and became focused on casual players, I started playing Star Wars: the Old Republic (SWTOR).
Ravalation features many different games and topics, but SWTOR and LOTRO form its core.
CopyrightUnless indicated otherwise, I take all screenshots on this blog myself. I would therefore appreciate it if you would link to ravalation.blogspot.com if you choose to use a picture for your own blog or any other public media. If you want to use material for commercial purposes, please contact me first and consider that a lot of content falls under the copyright of their respective game studios.
Enjoy your stay!
