Zandras application

Postby Zandras » Mon Dec 11, 2017 5:28 pm

Ahoi there Elders,

Recently started playing again. I had a long break since level 95. Just didn't think much of the content back then. Orange and Gals tell me that Mordor is a big step up, so i'm keen to give lotro another go. I won't be massively active (baby) but hopefully a few times a week at least. Always thought highly of Elders back in the Gilrain days, seemed like a nice mature bunch so definitely keen to get to know you given the chance.

About you (in real-life):
Name: Jason
Age: 30
Nationality: English (soon Swedish)
Tell us a bit about yourself: I grew up moving around Europe and finished my studies (aeronautical engineering BA) in the UK when I met my wife playing LOTRO about 8 years ago. Now we're living in northern Sweden and getting settled into family life. At the moment I'm off work (plåtslagare) with the wee man for 6 months. Had to retrain following a fairly major burnout while at university, pretty much recovered now although not totally.
Hobby wise I'm training the local rugby team, I broke my 2 ACLs and can't really play anymore unfortunately. A bit too old to be doing that kind of thing anyways. Apart from that I spend a lot of time fixing the car :P

What is your previous LoTRO experience (including previous kinships)?
I used to be in Hope and Glory. Did some midcore raiding up until Orthanc. Did some hardcore raiding (world first type) on ESO but since a few years ago I haven't raided at all and focused more on real life.
Why do you want to join The Elders?
See above. Also Orangeblossom, Lexray, Galsamborn, Otoronko and Algirdukas are playing with you.
What do you plan to do with your time (e.g. raiding, levelling, questing)?
For the moment levelling. Will take some time to hit max level, usually sit there talking to folks.
About your LOTRO character:

Name: Zandras
Class: Hunter
Trade skills: Weaponsmith

Got an RK at level 90 I think and all the other classes at level 85 not including Beorning

Heya Jason! Zandras is a name I recognise, so I'm pretty sure I bumped into you a few times :D

Hey old Elders: I think the one thing that scares me about Jason's application is that, if he'd applied when the game started we'd have turned him down for being too young. Now he's plenty old enough. Ten years have gone.... scary or what??

Anyway, forgive the old-person muttering. You're very welcome to join us of course! But not that baby - definitely too young. We have standards you know! :DD

You'll be a Recruit for 21 days while we get to know each other and during that time you can only have your main in the kin (it's easier to get to know someone before they devolve into hundreds of different alts. :)) Once you're all settled, we do expect Members not to have characters in different kinships (we can't stalk you, so this is just on your honour!) There are a number of exceptions. It's absolutely fine to have your own personal kinship, as we know some people like to own kinhouses and so on. We're also ok with you having an alt in a kin for something we're not really able to provide - such as an RP or PvP kin - but please do talk to me or an Officer about it. You'll find us very understanding. :P
