Application of Cayenne

Postby Cayenne » Mon Dec 22, 2014 7:54 pm

My name is Pete, but the first character I ever started seriously to play in lotro, was hobbit girl Cayenne Seasonings. So the name kind of stuck. Not the Seasonings part, but Cayenne (clarification). Nowadays people who know me online call me just that. Tho most new ppl seem to think it comes from a certain car model. Im usually not correcting that. For obvious reasons.

Im 42 years old, I have 2 lovely daughters, of which at least one is regularly online too. Altho she doesnt yet qualify Elders. Which is good as I don't qualify as her Facebook friend... And I live in Turku, Finland.

Ive started lotro August 2008. I established kin called Crafting Guild for me and my friends in may 2009. When my friends lost interest to lotro (2011) and I was the only active there aside their social calls to see how I was doing, I decided to apply to some active and mature kin. Hope and Glory and The Elders were the ones I screened out from the mass. I first tried H&G (I know I was wrong to do it they weren't mature at all, oh no...) :lol: and since they accepted me, my Elders application was never made. Had great times there and all were peachy. But when I had real life matters and were off from lotro almost the whole year 2014, upon my returning the kin was in shambles. Ive been back over a month now, and to be honest only member who was still there that I used to chat with was Lexray. Yesterday when Lex told me he is applying to The Elders, I thought maybe I oughta do the same. Hope and Glory as an active lotro kin is not coming back anytime soon.

I am recovering altoholic. I started gaming with normal sub account, but soon moved on to more demanding substance: lifetime account. It was the usual, my social relationships suffered and my friends that used to be sporty university promises soon changed to shady nerds that never leave home. First it was only 3-4 alts, but then I met Fred (name changed, he's in turbine witness protection program now for revealing Codemasters stragglers) and Fred introduced me to the one toon each Class philosophy. That sounded so cool that I made one each myself too. But back then it was Prohibition law and char slots were scarce. Nowadays you can go to any Turb store and buy as many as you like. But back then only option was another account. I was spiralling. Got 2 life accounts and made alts, and deleted old high level alts to make new ones. Infact I didnt care who I had to delete, as long as new alts were flowing in. Even Fred seemed like starting f2p newbie with one toon compared to me. Then came a real life intervention, which took best part 2014. But back now with only 4 main toons I intend to game regularly with:

Cayenne Seasonings :wdn:

Femme Fatale :brg:

Julienne Steele :lm:

Lorienne Honeymead (beorning)

Lorienne is the new one I now mostly level when Im online. My plusses (+) online are patience and ability to say hi, and my minuses (-) are ranting and bad humour.

So, finally, if anyone made it to the end of this ran... post, here I am, applying to The Elders.

-Just that. I mean Cayenne.

Haha... nice post Cayenne, and of course you're welcome to join us. If you glance down the list, you'll see you're in good company at the moment. :)

Search for "Elders" in the Social Panel and ping any one of them to ask which Officers are online for an invite.

Please read the post about "What it is to be a recruit" - with a surge of new people, it's hard to do it individually and the same will apply to you even though the post mentions Forgotten Heroes specifically.

And... welcome! :)

Thank you Cara, for welcoming me. :D

I will contact ppl online once I get there. This yuletide is somewhat disrupting to the gaming. I might be able to log on, only to be plugged off from power grid by angry teenage mutant needy girlies. :s

Just kidding, they are lovely and deserving my attention. Fully. ;)
