Application from another Elf

Postby Saeldireth » Fri May 18, 2018 5:53 pm

Name: Tams
Age: 25
Nationality: Technically British
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Currently based in the EU, maybe a bit young but I do love the Hitchhiker's Guide, Fawlty Towers, and a host of other niche type humour. But if you can get by the love of the arbitrary you'll find someone who is super helpful, occasionally chatty, conscientious and funny to watch with my poor sense of direction and uncanny ability to fall off bridges.

What is your previous LoTRO experience (including previous kinships)?
I've been playing for a couple of months but find everything is still pretty new. Originally with a laid back guild but unfortunately the leader got sick and couldn't keep up a regular playing schedule. Sadly kin attendance died out and had to move to greener pastures if I didn't want to be the only one online. Joined new Kin I'd previously encountered who were very active on all fronts and after a week had seen some pretty crazy stuff. (Provosts having rogue meetings on how to usurp leadership and a guild leader more focused on "skinning officers alive" during a Kin meeting instead of resolving issues away from newbies eyes and the like) left today.

Why do you want to join The Elders?
I'm just looking for a warm, casual home base where people are supportive and kind. After reading up on your philosophy and outlook on LoTRO, you guys sound like a mythical unicorn. Too good to be true but you probably won't leave it if it accepts you.
What do you plan to do with your time (e.g. raiding, levelling, questing)?
I plan to focus on leveling and doing any side quest I can get my hands on. But I am always open to helping out with instances or even fellowing for mundane quests/deeds. As I'm still new, I'm happy to give anything else a try!

About your LOTRO character:

Name: Saeldireth
Class: Hunter/Taxi
Level: 55
Trade skills: Yeoman, access to alt Explorer

Ps. I go everywhere with my swan, Cobbe. Please let him in too.

...and Lucy, don't forget Lucy.

Anyway, with that one sentence you showed you would fit right in; all the finest and best of kinnies get lost in a wardrobe and fall off any bridge (and cliff - don't forget cliffs) they come across.

You will be the official Kin Baby though... :DD Definitely the youngest. But if you have that (unusual in the young :roll: :lecture: ) ability to appreciate Elderly grumpiness and recognise it for the rapier wit and brilliance *we* know it as, and realise the forgetfulness around you is simply the result of brains packed full of experience and Far More Important Things To Think About Than Why I Suddenly Decided I Needed To Be In Bree, I'd hope you'll fit right in. You're most certainly welcome to give us a try!

Standard blurb: 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

(*) In your case, I guess it could be for discussion of modern pop music and/or celebrities we've never heard of. And ....err... whatever nonsense it is young people talk about these days ;D

ps Your first experience of grumbling will happen any time now from an ancient, bad-tempered dwarf who believes the recruitment of any elf is an outrage and a scandal. I fear it could be worse when it comes to a young elf. He has one of those at home.... :lol:

pps No drama here... move along... Too old to be arsed.

Yes, its true, I cannot navigate my way out of a paper bag, let alone a deadly war zone. Besides falling off cliffs is my form of exercise :P

Thanks for all the welcoming messages :D
Though I'm afraid I'm going to disappoint you all if you were hoping for the annoying discussion of current pop music, celebrities, shopping or shoes.

I'm afraid I don't listen to mainstream radio and rather opt for a solid taste in contemporary folk, indie and rock (with blues roots all the better.) I tend to pay more attention to fictional heroes than the latest media sensation and view shopping as a means to an end more than something to be enjoyed. (Unless it's garden centres or craft stores)
Shoe shopping is generally loathed and only occurs once every two years on average.

However, if you would like some form of mild irritation with which you can complain, I know the SpongeBob theme song off by heart, am recently married yet still in love, and I possess a frustrating habit of employing an antidiluvian vocabulary that will dramatically increase your need for a dictionary. I might also try to show off my 2nd language or painting ability.

I'll look forward to seeing you all in game! :DD
