Greetings! Application for Zarienne

Postby Zarienne » Sat Jun 04, 2016 11:19 pm

About you (in real-life):

Name: Caroline
Age: 59
Nationality: American (USA)
Tell us a bit about yourself: Freelance worker with lots of time to game. :-) Currently living in TX with husband and dogs, but planning a move to CA before the end of the year. Umm .. errr ... don't know what else to put here, feel free to ask questions!

What is your previous LoTRO experience (including previous kinships)?
This is my second time playing. I previously played back when Moria was endgame, but then got busy with life and lost track of my account. This time around I've been playing for a couple of years - I can't actually recall how long it's been now. I have a VIP account and I'll probably keep playing as long as the game keeps going. I am a diehard Tolkien geek. I have one of each class, including 6 level 100s (or over,) though only three characters are on Laurelin. I am most active on Evernight, where my main resides, and am in three kins over there. However, one of the main reasons I'm not so active on Laurelin is that I don't really know anyone. I originally started a character on a new server for fun and, honestly, some solitude as the kin I was in was going through high drama which I can't abide. I was also curious about RP. I leveled up an RK, then made a warden - still figuring that class out, have not made much level progression there. When the servers merged, I moved my Beorning over from Withy with a large care package for the characters here, while the rest went to Evernight with my main kin. Lately I've only been playing the Beorning on Laurelin, and having great fun with her, but it's kind of boring with no one to talk to or play with, so I thought I'd look into a kin for her.

Why do you want to join The Elders?
Well, like I said, it's kind of boring just always soloing with no one to talk to. I enjoy soloing, but sometimes I like to do group content. However, I did not want to join just any kin. I was holding out hoping I would run across some mature players like myself. I was googling Laurelin kins recently and found yours and it seemed a good match.

What do you plan to do with your time (e.g. raiding, levelling, questing)?
I do a bit of all of it.

About your LOTRO character:

Name: Zarienne
Class: Beorning
Level: 102
Trade skills: Historian

I also have a level 100 RK named Lainril, but she's parked in MT at the moment, which is why I'm not applying with her. I might dust her off again at some point.

Hiya and welcome :)
One thing to note, a lot of the Elders are EU-based, so time-wise you may find people aren't online at your main hours, but there are night owls and early birds, and I am sure we'll all meet up at some point.

Hey there. I log on to Evernight too, but don't really do much, just usually get the hobbit present and leave (gotta love those free shared storage transfers).

We're not a "RP kin", but there will most often be someone around to talk to or play with, help out as needed etc. As Rana says, being EU-based it may seem quiet when you're on but we are around; depending on RL stuff I've seen me on 'til thon time in the morning UK wise. Also, if you got as far as applying you'll have read our front page so you'll hopefully have an idea of what to expect from us. For me, the only drama I'm interested in is the shows my kids are enrolled in.

Anyhow, good luck with your application, I'm sure our Boss Lady will be along at some point (and if you are bringing cake this might be a good time to mention it).

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;

And who has the sexiest elf-chick I've seen in a while? When we were running round the barrows that time Idariel was such a distraction, eye-patch and all... Inside every Dwarf there's an Elf waiting to break free.

Welcome Zarienne!

I have the same concern as others that there may be no one around at the times you're active. But, hey, it costs nothing to give it a try and you're very welcome to do so and see how it works out.

Look for "Elders" in the Social Panel and send a /tell to one of them asking if there are any Officers online to send you an invite. And of course, we'll try and look out for you too. :)

I have had several American kinnies over the years, but they were either based in the EU or insomniacs ;)

And as others have pointed out, we're not really a RP kin other than that Cara sort of 'RP's' an evil tyrant queen and Jedy a grumpy dwarven tank etc...

But if none of that puts you off, welcome aboard!!

Flinty you muppet! How could you misunderstand Cara's real nature? Have you had a lobotomy? Lost your glasses. Forgotten the real smell of fear as Cara whips us all as raid leader into a meaningless death, so she can grab some nice loot?

Shame on you.
