4 new(ish) players looking for a Kin. There is so much information in this forum it’s difficult to know where to begin, and I don;t have the time to read through every Kin’s post, so can you help – is there a Kin out there that would be willing to take us on?
English writing. “Cn u av a look at this m8” does not count as English. If you can understand that sentence and find it acceptable/tolerable, you probably aren’t the Kin for us.
All over 25 with jobs / careers / kids. Apologies to the younger gamers, I don’t mean to offend you, but we are looking for a Kin with members similar to us. Amongst ‘usual’ things (Football, movies, music, you know, the normal stuff), we talk about: Changing dirty nappies. How much our pension contributions have gone up this year. How will the US debt crisis will affect us.
Casual. None of us are Level 65, and neither will we be for a long time, most likely. We have lives outside of LotRO. Kins that are hardcore endgame raiders, probably not for us.
A mixture of abilities. 2 are veteran MMOers, 2 barely play video games at all.
So there must be Kins out there on Gilrain that are similar to us - should/could we join your Kin?
We'd be looking for folks like you, and you'd be looking for a kin like us. We all play our own way, and we respect each other for that. I could type a whole load more to convince you, but that would be pointless. Join us, you'll never want for another kin, and you'll never find a better family group playing together (not joking, we have a very high density of couples in our kindred, and some of their kids play too. Ask my wife ;-) My daughter doesnt play, but she likes to eat the computer wires!).
p.s. forum activity is no actual display for kindred activity. Contact me ingame on Azrakhul (send me a PM, I'm usually on some alt these days) or contact Nisraen/Cherrypip.
The Last Warders will always welcome new players. We do what we want, when we want and we play when we have the time. We like levelling our chars/alts and PvMP, we also do some instances once in a while.
Our members age range from about 14-15 to in the 40's, some are single some have families and they come from all over Europe.
Send me a tell if you guys are interested. Then we'll arrange something.
We are a small, casual kin - thus don't expect many raids/instances.
And we all are in age over 20 (our average age is about 30 I suppose).
We do speak and write english - in the way as we were taught at school. But only several of our members are from UK. Our members are from many european countries: Norway, Sweden, Holland, Poland, Basque, Romania, Bulgaria...
Most of us plays LotRO since years, so we have many lvl 65 characters. But we aren't interested in gaining end-game gear in end-game raids. We prefer to have fun while in our drunken instance runs (we would rather go to Shire and kill shrews than try to be serious and sober facing mobs ).
Me and another friend from Leeds started a brand new kinship in Gilrain. We have had similar problems in the past and that was one of the reasons we started it. I am 40 years old and Lee by the same age (I think... ), We accept from 25 up and with the condition to commit to help others as well. I was on other kinships that completely ignored me. They had their own group of friends and I thought it was pretty much understandable. So, one of our objectives is not to make numbers as a priority but to pay attention to new members first. Becoming cemented friends is the first step for a long lasting Kinship. Another thing is: We, as a responsible kinship, promise to give to all new members the title of officer to one character of his choice and the others will be kinsman/kinswoman. My name is Paulo by the way and my characters are: Greenlight (Officer) - Megabone - Joandarc - Alexandraea and Saraih. My friend Lee is more advanced and has: Torsion - Evavyle - Lamajica and Valeyard.
Please, feel free to ask anything you would like to know... If you decide to join in you will have the chance to be in a democratic kinship: We take decisions based on the majority will.
Hope to hear from you guys and hope you can be helpful building this kinship as well.
You sound like my kinnies already lol I'm assuming that you've been snapped up already but I only just saw your post mainly due to interference that you mention... the 2 kiddies that come pester at my knee anytime I try to do something hehe.
We have a plenty of kinnies but if I'm honest an active, regular group of about 10. We all have outside commitments so sometimes we're busier sometimes we're quiet. We don't usually actively recruit but as I said already you seem to fit our bill perfectly
Our ethos is and has always been to help each other out. We have been about a long time now so do have our 65s taking part in end game activities but also have our alts... plenty (too many) of them and are more than happy to assist or enjoy the earlier game with you.
We like a good natter and if you've not found yourself a home yet please get in touch for a chat. You can catch me (Elodil or Elodii most often) or my husband (Neliel, Neliae or Nelir) ingame or grab any of the Shard of Narsil kinnies they will be able to point you in our direction.
I've sent you a private message since I'm not a member of the clan that may suit you and it's not really my place to advertise for them publicly. If there is any clan I'm going to ask to join in the near future it'll be the one I haved PMed you about, and I'm looking for the same as you from what I can see. I definitely don't need to be bombarded with raid requests every five minutes and I play LOTRO to relax (after work), not to be stressed.
