About you (in real-life):

Name:Craig
Age:36
Nationality: Welsh/British but always class my self as a Taffy(Welsh) :D
Tell us a bit about yourself: I work full time in customer services within the finance industry live with my better half of 10 yrs who puts up with my gaming habits. If the weather is right and winds are good I will be found on a beach or a field being dragged along on a board by a 3 meter power kite :twisted: . I love mushrooms so a hobbit was the way forward :lol: my mrs does often say you must have been a hobbit in your previous life

What is your previous LoTRO experience (including previous kinships)? Started playing when we was on the eu servers just before we all got migrated, was in the kin with Becca(Doronwen) & Froggy as part of the conclave, once the migration happened the kin we were in seemed to die out a little, we lost a number of players to GW2, the remaining members then merged with FH and have been part of them since then.
Why do you want to join The Elders? Because I'm not being left behind :)
What do you plan to do with your time (e.g. raiding, levelling, questing)? Levelling and questing, not seen my self as a raider as I am a frequent afker and sometimes do not log in for a few months at a time, although not as long as 3 yrs :)

About your LOTRO character:

Name: Tolmam
Class: Hunter
Level:77
Trade skills: Westemnet Forester, Artisan Prospector & Mater Tailor

I do have alts but are low lvl, Tol is my main.
:min: Minimam lvl 18, :hnt: Tolmam lvl80

If we're not meant to have midnight snacks, why is there a light in the fridge :?:

As an ex-FH member, you can be admitted even though we're closed to general recruitment. So welcome to the kin, Craig. :)

Yay, a soloer!!

There is a few of us here and we mostly spend our time laughing at those 'end gamers' that struggle to walk unaided unless in the company of at least 5 others.

A couple of things to be aware of though.

1. Ignore the Kin leader (not for any particular reason other than it really winds her up).
2. Ignore the Kin leader....you know where this is going!
3. Ignore the idiosyncratic dwarf in Poland. Unless you're short, fat and have no discernable features that identify what sex you are (as a hobbit, 1 out of 3 is good enough!!), he'll probably be ignoring you anyway.
4. Send any fireworks you get to Rana.
5. Never, ever, ask Steppa help you in a 2 man group. He'll more than likely just run round in circles, picking flowers while you get your butt kicked by a hairy arsed troll.
6. Don't disrespect horses or they won't allow you to jump off cliffs.
7. You must have a bio.
8. Flint is not a traitor even though he has moved to the dark side and become an officer.
9. If you see Thran in-game, hide as no one (and I mean no one) does group content/instances/skirmishes/big battles/raids/co-op stuff as badly as him.
10. If you do get accepted into the kin, understand that you'll never, ever, get out again.
11. Even if you double your age and then add 30, you'll still be younger than Drax.
12. Esp has roughly 84 alts.
13. Being pregnant is no excuse for anything.
14. logging on after 11pm on a Saturday night will normally find you in the company of the most rounded individuals in the kin.
15. See when I said 'a couple of things' I meant......

Having said all that, I can't say if you'll get in but, as a soloer, I think you should. However, a rotunde Hobbit will, I am sure, be along shortly (as if they could be anything else) and try to justify her continued roll as our illustrious leader.

Good luck with that.

Thran.

Feck, she got there first :shock:
:hnt: Thrandier lvl 102 Historian - Thran has returned to semi-activement and is back making an arse of things as normal. Unfortunately still trying to track down his housing items after the bailiffs were called!

:chn: Rathrendi lvl 33 Weaponsmith - Still in Intensive care due to neglect.

Non-Active Non-Kin Alts

:grd: Gilphillad, Kin Leader, Song of the Dead
:min: Thrandian, Call of Orome addict
:cpt: Iyara - Deceased, Deleted, Dumped - (select as per your mood)
:rk: Ioristion, Searching for the arsehole who made him change his name.
:brg: ??, He's a burglar, why the hell would I tell you his name!! Muppets......

?? - Mystery Character - It could be me standing next to you :shock: :s :lol:

Golden Rule

Make sure your signature is long enough to avoid pointless conversation

Pearls of wisdom

1. Nothing makes the day go faster than doing something no one has asked you to do.
2. Don't jab an Alpaca with a cattle prod - they're immune to electricity.
3. Don't give Dolgolleth access to a freebee box - he'll never leave.
4. Never let your dog off it's lead and expect it to willingly come back when you ask.
5. Always suggest home improvements to the wife in a way that makes her think it's her idea.
6. Never expect Steppa to help you when you're neck deep in Orcs in Moria.
7. Never trust a character you meet in LOTRO that doesn't have a Bio.
8. Never trust a character you meet in LOTRO whose name is only 4 letters long.
9. When you answer the phone and it one of your parents, hang up. They're only phoning to ask for something.
10. The more a Dwarf complains about Elves only confirms how much he actually loves them.
11. Never ask Dol for advice on which Alt to upgrade.
12. Don't save your last bullet, just ask politely for some more.
13. Just because an udder serves the same function as a breast doesn't mean it's a good idea to suck it.
14. Don't join the Elders if you like solitude.
15. Do join the Elders if you like to have someone close by just in case the battery on your mobility scooter runs out.
16. If the main pole on your rotary drier breaks, don't throw it away. Just stick a wooden brush handle inside it. It'll work just the same.
17. No matter how crap your weapon is, chances are it's still better than an imbued one.
18. Never accept the offer of promotion unless you actually applied for it in the first place.
19. When it's been a while since you last logged in, think about what your password is BEFORE you get to the stage being locked out.
20. Find out what a forum thread is about BEFORE you start to read it. You'll only ruin your day otherwise.
21. Rana always seems to have waaaaaaaaay too much time on his hands.
22. Women and cling film should NEVER be allowed in the same room at the same time.
23. Jimmy Osmond looks like a Masterchef should look.
24. If some fool puts a 9999 character limit on signatures, you are duty bound to create one that big!
25. Life is hard, grow a pair.
26. Never, EVER, tell a married woman your rubber finger has gone hard and the end has cracked due to overuse.
27. When your new Minister tells you his services last an hour and a bit, understand that "a bit" means about 50 minutes.

I suppose as a Hobbit you will be little but, more importantly, you're a soloer and that's good enough in my book :D .

Just one wee question tho. Is your mother really, really tall :lol: ??
