About you (in real-life):

Name: Louise
Age: over 50
Nationality: French / British
Tell us a bit about yourself:

I am a grandmother to three adorable ever growing boys and still have one daughter in full time education. Life can get hectic when a lot of the family are here and I love that but need to go to bed when they have gone. My life always seems to be busy what with a full time job, a part time job, a house that is always a mess, a husband (ditto) two cats and a dog.

I teach English but don't expect me to be good at spelling as I type too quickly and can never remember if I am on my French or ENglish keyboard. That is my main job. I also do freelance translations. Once the last one is out of education I hope to cut down to one job or maybe retire.

My home is in South West France not too far from Bordeaux. I haven't lived in the UK for many years and rarely go back there. My family are spread across Europe and my summer vacations are normally spent in our little house in Portugal which needs a lot of work so I don't know why I call that a holiday.

What is your previous LoTRO experience (including previous kinships)?
I started playing LoTRO a few years ago on the Laurelin server. The starting point was the Coursera course [url]Online Games: Literature, New Media, and Narrative[/url]. I am a big fan of these online courses and I have my own blog to document them which means people can read them in their own language. So I am still a mentor for this course and became a Kin officer for the Kinship.
The reason I started on Laurelin was becasue I though I would love role play. I don't. I am really not good at it and can never think of things to say. I find it very hard not to be me.
In between the annual courses the kin was all but dead so I played on other servers. I have some characters on Arkenstone and some on Crickhollow. I keep coming back to my huntress becasue she is my favourite.

Why do you want to join The Elders?
I want to join the Elders for a number of reasons.

- To start with I want to join a different Kinship becasue I am very lonely when I am playing as the Coursera course now charges and so there are no people needing my help. I like to chat and to play with people.
- Secondly The Elders appeals to me becasue I am grey and grumpy and wander around not knowing what I am doing most of the time. Your welcome page says it all, family comes first, no kids whizzing about and no one to criticise me when I don't know what I am doing.
- Thirdly, Amanagarwaen is with you and we have played together and chatted together before. We were on the course together and it would be nice to have a friend already there.

What do you plan to do with your time (e.g. raiding, levelling, questing)?
Mainly questing and playing around in festivals. Perhaps a bit of music. I would love to do some of the instances that I have never managed to do. This was mainly becasue of not enough people. A lot of kinships only seem to get together at higher levels, like 105.

Perfect! You sound like you'll fit in perfectly! :lol:

Welcome - as Bero says, grab an Elder online and get them to ask an Officer for an invite. Also Amana.. Armang..Armanag.... well, the guy we all know as 'Rana' is an officer and can invite you himself. :)

Yay! Welome Louise, great to see you here and fingers crossed I'll see you in kinchat soon.
If I'm not about, check for Elders in the social panel and ask if another officer is online, but I hope to catch you tomorrow or soon.

Like Cara says, they don't really remember my alts here (and I only have a few as well, no idea why they can't :P ), so I tend to get called Rana instead, so it's going to get confusing :)
