Application by Rachel - Ortensiel in game

Postby Ortensiel » Sat Jan 02, 2016 9:11 pm

About you (in real-life):

Name: Rachel
Age: 44
Nationality: British
Tell us a bit about yourself: Hi there. I'm a teacher and mother of an 18 year old daughter and a bit of a noob on LOTR although I did start playing years ago, but then stopped as I was already spending too much time on WoW for a supposedly professional person :D

I played WoW for a good few years and Rift for a short time, followed by the last year on a relatively new game, Archeage. After being killed lots in Archeage I decided I needed to retire to a game with a bit less focus on PVP as my reflexes are not the fastest XD

Now I'm thinking why didn't I play this game all along? The LOTR trilogy is my favourite all time story which I reread this year along with The Hobbit and The Silmarillion. So I'm really enjoying playing a game with such a great story behind it (something that is frankly missing from some of these modern games).

I'm quite independent on the whole in my levelling as I've found in the past that other people go so fast and sometimes I actually like to READ the quest instead of racing here and there like a nutter. I've used teamspeak and done raiding in the past, but that is a long way off as I'm currently just trying to learn my way around the game.

What is your previous LoTRO experience (including previous kinships)? Very limited experience but enjoying learning. No previous kinship.

Why do you want to join The Elders? I would like to play alongside people of my own age instead of being the granny of the guild.

What do you plan to do with your time (e.g. raiding, levelling, questing)? Questing initially and learning how to craft. Later maybe some raids.

About your LOTRO character:

Name:Ortensiel
Class: Elf
Level: 19
Trade skills: Weaponsmith/Woodworker/Prospector

Maybe in the future my little hobbit Coco could join, when I eventually get round to levelling the little guy. 8)

Welcome Rachel! We're open for recruitment so we look forward to having you join us!

As a new Member, you'll be a Recruit for 21 days. During this period, you're not allowed any alts in the kin I'm afraid. This is to give old people a chance to get to know you before you suddenly dissolve into 9 different people. After that - feel free!

Look in the Social Panel for Elders who are online and send a tell to one asking if any officers are around. Usually there are but just right now you may need to wait a day or two for people to recover from Christmas, New Year & family obligations and be online again. Definitely 3 officers should be online after around 8pm Sunday (UK time).

Well, i can't speak for the kin, but anyone who states their class as "Elf" rather than than one of the actual classes could be partway to Elder level already...

...And no doubt no matter how slow you think you are at levelling you'd still max out before me.

All the best wih your application, look forward to seeing you online sometime.
RAID STATUS: probably my Captain, but they were always willing and ready to take one for the team if the cause was just.

07.) in life, try and resist the common urge to be like the rest of the sheeple who follow the lowest common denominator - do the best you can and you'll get on fine;
08.) if people can ask the question rather than think for themselves then they will, so there's no point getting frustrated about it - none of this "teach a man to fish" nonsense in the 21st century;
09.) Be careful of hurting others' feelings when you make an attempt at humour;
10.) Ain't nobody got time for that;

I say that too, but then I've been told i have no class.

Although i'm sure Rachel/Ortensiel being a teacher is in a class of their own...

Well, I can tell she belongs in The Elders. Sent her several tells tonight to give her an invite - but age affects the hearing, of course, and it seems she didn't hear the tells. I wrote a letter and put it in a postbox. That should work better. ;)

Thanks for the welcomes. What a lovely guild and I really enjoyed your event on Tolkien's birthday.

And thanks Tombpyre for the heads up about the Sunday group. Will look out for that in future when I have a less busy weekend than this one. :smile:
