Application Fingolrod

Postby Maeglien » Tue Dec 19, 2017 4:37 pm

About you (in real-life):

Name: Luise
Age: 44 (45 in January)
Nationality: German
Tell us a bit about yourself: I have been a fan of Lord of the Rings since I first read the books from our parish library back then in the 80s. 11 years ago I became a member of a religious community (yes, I'm a nun) and when Lotro became free to play I could finally explore Middle-Earth on my own (or, as I soon discovered, together with other real people around the world). I'm currently living in a convent together with two other sisters.

What is your previous LoTRO experience (including previous kinships)?
Why do you want to join The Elders?
What do you plan to do with your time (e.g. raiding, levelling, questing)?
I've been playing since June 2011, first started with my human Guardian Gildoriel on server Vanyar. While I levelled her up I made my 2nd char, the Elf hunter Fingolrod. I joined a small kinship of German/Austrian players which after 2 or 3 years slowly dissolved because of real life issues.

I then joined a quite big kinship where my big problem was that they had a great flux of players which caused some rude and exploitish people to be part of the kinship. I was asked to be an officer there and did it for a year or so when I realized one day that I didn't really like the atmosphere.

Parallel to that I started one char, a female Elf hunter Teniriel on Laurelin. Two of my real life friends were also here. So during server consolidation I transferred my chars here.

Today I've got crafters for every profession and maxed guild rep (still working on T2 doomfold crafting on most though) and with the two real life friends I've got a small kinship of which my main Gildoriel is leader.

Unfortunately, real-life issues keep us from playing group too often, so I'm looking for a home for my Fingolrod (L115) to do more group content. I mainly do questing, but I do like an instance or raid sometimes as well. And I need a mature kinship who understands that sometimes my real life gets so busy I don't have time to play for a week or so. Currently I'm having him at the Red Company, but when I read through the kin descriptions on lotro-wiki, I liked yours very much, so if possible I'd like to join you.

About your LOTRO character:

Name: Fingolrod
Class: Hunter
Level: 115
Trade skills: Master Cook of the Doomfold, Westemnet Guild Master

Luise, you are very welcome to join us. We're currently open for new members and our only gateway is minimum age which (sadly) like the rest of us, you pass with ease.

We are definitely not rude, and we have no exploiter-types. We have a strong community and I hope you'd enjoy it. Whilst not being rude, it has to be said that language used is sometimes ...well, "mature"** (gotta say the content of said language is the opposite - big bunch of muppets, the lot of 'em). I really hope you'd be comfortable with that but I'm guessing you wouldn't be applying to a large kin if you weren't. :D

Standard recruit stuff: You'll be a Recruit for 21 days while we get to know each other and during that time you can only have your main in the kin (it's easier to get to know someone before they devolve into hundreds of different alts. :)) Once you're all settled, we do expect Members not to have characters in different kinships (we can't stalk you, so this is just on your honour!) There are a number of exceptions. It's absolutely fine to have your own personal kinship, as we know some people like to own kinhouses and so on. We're also ok with you having an alt in a kin for something we're not really able to provide - such as an RP or PvP kin - but please do talk to me or an Officer about it. You'll find us very understanding. :P

** Not me, obviously. Noooo... Pure as the driven snow, me. Innocent as they come. And I'm very young and beautiful too (I may as well try for the whole lot, no?). I mean, ask any of them... They'll tell you....***

***...unless they're looking for sudden and unexpected demotion.

EDIT: I feel like I've met you in-game. The name seems familiar. But I could be wrong. :)

Thank you! About the "other" kinships thing: Fingolrod is the only char I would like to have with you because my Guardian (which used to be my main for six years now) is leader of that other kinship which is not so active, and the others are mainly crafters, so Fingolrod is de facto my main right now, because I can do end content with him. I hope this is no problem.

And yes, might be we have met before, but I don't remember exactly either, I'm over 30 yo ;)

Welcome to the kin :)

Risking an instant demote, Cara is usually the instigator of mature language... On chat a string of swearwords that would make a sailor blush usually precludes her saying hello - and she uses the F bomb often enough, you would think its instead of a comma;)

If she sees this, we will probably be recruits together hehe.

Obviously we try and humour Tom. In his new role as Kinhouse Toilet Cleaner however, he really is the Lotro version of an "Untouchable" and therefore can't be taken too seriously..

Now how do I go about actually moving my char to your kinship?

Search for "Elders" in the Social Panel. Ping any one of them and ask them to get an Officer who's online to send you an invite. Clearly, you need to be not in a kinship at that point, or it doesn't work. :lol:

Also, you should ignore Atek. It was difficult to find a role to fit his abilities but clearly making him Junior Assistant Kinhouse Toilet Cleaner has caused him to be led astray by his immediate boss which is, of course,Tom.
