Namaste is one of the top raiding kinships in LotRO and was the 5th kinship across the NA servers to clear all six bosses in tier 2 Hardmode in Ost Dunhoth - we take our raiding very seriously. We were the kinship that farmed the LT the most on Nimrodel back when BG was all that. Server firsts aren't just what we're all about, we like consistency. We've downed Draigoch in T2 HM (server first) multiple times. We run Tower of Orthanc T1/T2 and plan to farm the wings & Saruman until Turbine throws us a new raid!
Outside the raids we're very relaxed. Kinchat and Ventrilo are uncensored and we never take what anyone says personally. We're out in the moors often, bringing the fight whether we're creeping or on our freeps. Our members span all the timezones of the world, from South America to North America to even Fosterz Land.
Basically if you're looking for that tight-knit feel, your priorities lie in raiding, and you're an open minded person, then this is the right kinship for you!

Civ II rules after all these years......
Namaste is looking for people who are serious about their gaming and are dedicated to being part of a close knit kin with team oriented goals. If you have an obsession for self improvement and a desire to contribute in the betterment of your team, this may be the kin for you.
We ask that you have put time into your character and have a good working knowledge of your class as well as experience in working with a group as an observant and situationally aware member of raid groups. A good working knowledge of the strengths, weaknesses and skills/abilities of the various classes in LOTRO is a definite bonus, as is the ability to keep a cool head under pressure, follow instruction and react quickly to a rapidly changing environment.
If you think you fit this description, please put in an application and talk to an officer of our kinship.
