Sometimes you just need a place where you can chill out, jump on the back of your favorite four-legged friend, and go off on an adventure.

The Tattered Notebook: A 'Top Gear' look at mounts

The Road to Mordor: Inside Isengard

It's one thing to sit down during a beta and poke around on your own, making educated guesses about why what went where and who what is wherefore.
