Welcome to The Elders Kinship Website!

The Elders kinship is an EU based kinship now based on the Laurelin server of Lord Of The Rings Online. We came into being on the Gilrain server in 2007 and in 2015, with the server closures, we have moved to Laurelin

Are you grey-haired and grumpy? Does the sight of all those youngsters racing around make you feel old and exhausted? Do you want to spend your evenings in like-minded company - those other old people who actually understand grumpiness is a comedy art-form? Do you like to play well, want to raid - but never take the game too seriously? Or do you like to amble around in your own damn time, forever levelling but wanting great chat and company while you're doing it?

Congratulations! You've found the kinship for you!

The Elders was one of the very oldest kinships on Gilrain (in every sense of the word..) and the same lovely bunch are now on Laurelin as The Elders Kinship (someone had already nabbed the original name - just The Elders - on Laurelin). We offer probably the warmest, the best and the funniest community you'll find anywhere online. We understand that real life has to come first, sometimes at short notice when it's sick kids, ferrying teens or suddenly having to work late - and no-one will ever criticise you for it. We know that the only way you can really enjoy being childish and silly is when there are no actual children around! We're not hard core. We like to raid a couple of times a week because once or twice a week is enough when you've got real life commitments to attend to. We have our own Vent server. We don't mind if you play every day, or once a week, or once a month. Our only entrance requirement is that you're over 25yrs of age (our average age is in the early 40s). We accept applications from all classes, all levels and any (or no) game experience. Our only true requirement is age.

If you feel you want to join us, sign up (please use your main game name) and apply via the Membership Application forum.

View the latest post Help! Server moves?? I've been away! What do I do??

Updated after kin move: 28th September 2015

Ok, lots of people in this situation. I'll keep this post updated if/as information changes. Use other forum threads to discuss things and ask more questions.

What's happening?
Turbine are closing 19 of 29 servers. There are 2 EU-EN servers surviving. The Elders are going to Laurelin.

What do I do?
Probably a good idea to patch the game so it's up to date when you want to do something. :)

It is now safe to switch servers! The kinship has moved to Laurelin. The recommended method is to move first any kinship leaders if you have a private kin , second your house owner and finally remaining characters. Turbine rep Vyvyanne suggests selecting "Shared items" as well for each move, so any items "falling through" get transferred (eg alt-bound items in your house). Full post on advice is here: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread ... tion-Guide

So far people are transferring without apparent issue.

If you log in to Gilrain on your main and you're not in a kin, we did NOT kick you! The kin was automatically disbanded by Turbine once Cara moved to Laurelin, and re-created there. So you'll be temporarily kinless until you do move to Laurelin.

Once you transfer to Laurelin, all the toons that were in The Elders will now be in "The Elders of Gilrain" on Laurelin (temporarily "The Elders-1"). Remember, if you've been away a while, your alts will have been kicked during one of my spring cleans. Just ask for them to be readmitted, exactly as you did on Gilrain when you came back from a break. Before you try and do that, best to log in on your main and check what names you're looking for - eg, there's a good chance some of the officers will be "-1". However, I am still "Cara" (YAY!)

What about my stuff?
Everything in vaults, shared storage, tokens, points, Mithril coins, festival junk....EVERYTHING... will be transferred when you transfer your account, except the contents of your Mailbox. And except your house. You'll get credit for it, but you have to go buy a new one. The contents of your old house will still exist, and be in Escrow for you to pick up.

How long have I got to do this?
For the life of the game! After the end of the year, you will not be able to play on Gilrain. But you will always be able to transfer your account to Laurelin.
