Let it be known, on this day, The Arkenstone Kinship of Swifty and Hammo
has been established!
Aye, 'tis true, Swifty (myself) and Hammo (my silent cousin IRL) are now accepting members into our Kinship.
"What do I have to do to gain entrance into this fine group of kin?", you may ask.
Be a Hobbit.
Sadly, there is no place in this exclusive Kinship for talls. Filthy, filthy talls....
Only the truly courageous of heart have chosen to traverse the hobbit path, and we want you!
So all hobbits of short stature, unite! Contact Swifty or Hammo in game, and if you meet the most important quality of all, you will be invited.
Ye shall not be disappointed.
Armies of hobbits, my friends...armies of hobbits...
That is all,
Swifty and Hammo
Oh, and dwarves? While you meet the the height requirement, you, sadly, are not hobbits. You, like talls, need not apply.
Edit: After going the first 6 months of the game as hobbit only, we finally decided to admit Talls into the kinship. We are still hobbit-centric, if you will. Some of these Tall servants ain't so bad either

Reason: Filthy Talls
Swifty and Hammo would like you know that...alts are welcome! Totally fun, casual atmosphere! You don't need vent! You don't need lots of playtime!
You do need to have fun when you are wearing this kinship tag.
Gaming does not have to be SYRIUS BIZNESS!
All you need is to be a Hobbit. Embrace it you Pie-Lover!
One day, there shall be armies of Hobbits.
Filthy, dirty,Talls need not apply. If you are a Hobbit, you are in.

Up to 18 Hobbits already!!! Most excellent! Started out as kind of for fun...but we are getting great players, mature and best of all, fun.
Get your Hobbit alts (or main...if a hobbit is you main...instant Kinship leader!) into Swifty and Hammo while you can! We will not be taking tons of members, because quaility in a kinship means so much more than quantity!
I just added another post onto my Welcome Arkenstone Newbies Post feel free to add a link and plug your kinship. If you know anyone else with a good laid back group, let them know. Figure help give the newbies a headstart on finding a good kinship.
When are you usually on? Thinking about giving my burglar some more playtime.
Ahh...yer nice, Rungo! Sound like the right kind of hobbit for our kinship. C'mon hobbits, dont be shortsighted, join up with Swifty and Hammo! All Hobbits, all the time! Pst to Swifty, Hammo, Dephel or Aslano!
I know I have been away from forums for awhile, but do not fret! I have finally had another forum login name assigned to me, and I am back!
Swifty and Hammo are still accepting a few more precious Hobbits into their kinship. We are quickly filling up our ranks, so if you are a homeless hobbit, talk to someone with the Swifty and Hammo tag, and we will get you into the most fun, helpful, laid back kinship on Arkenstone!
Only requirement is that you are a hobbit!
This thread shall not die!
Swifty and Hammo
Thinking of rolling a hobbitses. Any idea what class is in need by your kinship?
ooooh i have a hunter and was gonna roll a gaurdian tonight.... but the chat servers are borked right now. well i have some stunty hobbits who want in so, expect a tell from horsewise or musclehorse.
P.S. whats wrong with dwarves? its not their fault they have hair on their faces instead of feet...
Most Excellent Old Crow!
We look forward to hearing from you on your hobbit! As for dwarves...we have not totally ruled out including our stout bearded brethren...but at this time, we are Hobbit only.
And, with dwarves having no females of their own...we are a bit afraid one might try to steal the heart of one of our female hobbits. If a dwarf and a hobbit ever mated and had children...Chuck Norris would die.
Swifty and Hammo want no part of Chuck Norris dying.
p.s. Swifty and Hammo would like to apologize for the above comment about Chuck Norris. Jokes about him are stale and old, belong on the WoW forums, and it will never happen here again.
Swifty and Hammo are still accepting Hobbits into our kin! No playtime restricitions, no level restrictions. Just be a hobbit! We are a forming into a great group of people who constantly help eachother out with crafting, questing, gear and general gameplay. Get in while you still can!

Shame you dont accept a hobbit trapped in a man's body~
I heard Gandalf can perform surgery for that, but since the tools and techniques have not been modernized (I heard he uses a "copper scalpel of fleetness" and a few Athelas potions to do the surgery) it might be kind of messy... and painful.
Swifty and Hammo is growing....but not too tall. Give us a shout if you are a homeless hobbit and desire a kinship that is all about helping others, questing and crafting! Approaching 50 members, so get on board while you can!
Well, after a period of limited computer availability, I am again playing. I would like to get my hobbits into your wonderful kinship.
Gundo is a level 14 burgler and a tinker. I need to complete the second jeweller quest but cannot solo it at this level.
Eitred is a level 15 (almost 16) minstrel and a historian.
Unfortunately I live in Alaska and work until 7pm. Because of that, I don't get on-line until about midnight Eastern time. However, I do have Fridays and Saturdays off so I tend to play during more 'normal' hours on those days, well, as long as my wife lets me anyway.
I will put you in friend list today, and be on the lookout for yer hobbits!
Do not worry about playtime, as we are a casual kinship, and RL>LoTRO.
Play when ya can, let me know if you are taking an extended leave, so I don't remove you, and all shall be fine!
