Application for Tinumien

Postby Tinumien » Sat May 04, 2019 4:29 pm

About you (in real-life):

Name: Frances
Age: 31
Nationality: British
Tell us a bit about yourself: I'm from Leeds, West Yorkshire, been a Tolkien nerd since I read Rings when I was 20. I'm a full time software tester. Inspired by LOTRO, I am a real-life minstrel, playing the harp and wearing pointy ears (see Tinumien.com).

What is your previous LoTRO experience (including previous kinships)? I started playing LOTRO in 2010 (I accidentally started on a french server, which given my terrible French was interesting....). I have been in a few kinships, which have either disbanded or become so quiet as to not really be worth it.
Why do you want to join The Elders? Intelligent conversation regarding LOTRO and all things Tolkien-related.
What do you plan to do with your time (e.g. raiding, levelling, questing)? Mostly levelling/questing/crafting, but I like to chat to like minded Tolkien nerds.

About your LOTRO character:

Name: Tinumien
Class: Minstrel
Level: 119
Trade skills: Yeoman

Hi Frances, welcome :)
I'll just check in with kin boss, but I am nearly 100% sure we are open, so I'll be able to add you in asap.
There are quite a few lore-lovers in the kin, including me (and Tom above :P ). I'm a member of the Tolkien Society too, love reading about the man nearly as much as reading his books :)

I think we may have a problem with this one guys - it says she's expecting "intelligent conversation" :shock: :lol:

Welcome Tinumien. You'll be one of our younger Members and I hope you'll like it here!

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
