I'm a returning lifer and have started a brand new char. I have a few mothballed chars i will be using for crafting, but im going to focus on my RK as my primary. anyhoo, im looking for a laid back kin that does some endgame stuff. im not hardcore but i do put in a lot of time every now and again. I play most nights ~7ish-11ish and weekends EST. If anyone is recruiting and think i might fit with your kin just let me know. IGN is Kainon.

Knights of the Shire is recruiting. We're an end-game kin by all mean and some of us might be considered hardcore players but we definitely have a laid-back attitude about the game. Most of our players probably fit roughly the same mold you described as yourself - relatively casual players - but you invest a good bit of time and you're interested in end-game material when you're there.
We've got a website and ventrilo server if you're interested in that.
