Lotro was the first mmo I ever experienced - I wished for a long time to try it, but the monetary cost seemed a bit steep to me. That was until it became ftp; naturally I joined as soon as I could I stayed as a fpt player for only a matter of days before moving up to Premium, bought the special Moria disc boxed set for Nuri from Amazon, and even pre-ordered RoR when it came out. Since then, I have never looked back! Being a Tolkien fan (and even perhaps a fanatic), this game has been (and remains so) a treasure to me.
Crickhollow was the second server I joined (after a brief stint on another, which I cannot remember right now) and had stayed with over the three years since. I have had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people, I found a place to run my Total Immersion stories, founded my very first kin, and enjoyed a very good time over the years thanks to this wonderful community on this server.
Yet, I found that my love of rping was lacking on such a small server. For many months I looked longingly at Landroval, wishing I could create what lovely things were being done there, as well as having a more populous number of rpers. This is only because Crickhollow is a far smaller server, not due to the talent of the role players here.
And so, I must regretfully and sadly announce that I am moving over to Landroval permanently. I have removed Nuri as the kin leader of Durin's Folk to allow the others to take the kinship over in my leaving, for that is the least I must do. I have deleted all but Nuri and Theo from my toons, only because both are so very dear to my heart. My stories here will, unfortunately not be continued, I am sad to say.
I must thank all the great players that have helped me over the years to develop my rp ability and of course to all the wonderful support to my stories. I cannot thank you all for the great times I have had here on this server and will cherish them forever.
I have begun a new Total Immersion story on Landroval concerning a dwarf named Brimbur and have plans for two other stories to be started very soon. Once again, I must thank you all for the support and friendship that has been so generously given to me and I can only ask for understanding in my decision to move over to Landroval.
Yet, despite all of this unfortunate news, do not be surprised to see Theo or Nuri wandering about the lands. I would certainly look forward to chatting or battling along side anyone that I may meet!
