New Characters, Welcome
Hello! I just wanted to say Hi to all the faces of Arkenstone. I want as many replies on this as possible! If you have are an old server member, or a brand new person to the game, I want everyone everywhere to feel welcome and happy! So go on, don't waste any time! Reply! If you aren't sure about something, ask in GLFF. In need of a kin, go to Bree, you'll find 20,000+ kinships looking for people to join and help out! Want a fellowship, don't be afraid to ask! People are always going to be nice and say yes or no. But all in all, don't be a hater. Just find ways to have fun, hang loose, and relax. I myself don't want LOTRO to be a game where everyone's always arguing about this or that. Lord of the Rings Online should be a laid back game that nobody should fight on. Everyone deserves a chance to have fun and relax. If you can't find anything to do, just talk to people. EVERYONE needs to feel welcome on EVERY server. Noobs and old players alike. Have fun and I hope to see you in the game soon.

P.S. The only way to truly understand yourself is to forget what you know and just let yourself have as much fun along the way. Have fun. Do your best and just all in all, have a great time in life and you'll have a better time when you're alone to remember what fun you had in those times. If you cant fight and win. Don't fight. Give up and let them leave till you land the critical hit.
Hullo Aideani and well met!
I must say, I'm very happy to read your message, thanks for spreading some sunshine around Middle Earth! I'm experienced in MMOs, but have only been playing LotRO for 2 years. Mostly I adventure on my own, but recently decided to check out the forums in an effort to connect to the LotRO community. So thanks for the warm greeting to all of us who are a wee new on the forums. I definitely second your message; I'm a huge fan of ENJOYING games such as this, and not getting caught up in the negative. We're all fellow gamers here! Cheers, and may the stars smile on the road before you!

Just started playing this game yesterday and decided to play on this server. Currently I am a Champion at level 11 and really like the game so far. I have been playing a lot of other MMO's and wanted to change it up a little and this game seemed like the perfect choice since I love LOTR and Tolkien.
At some point in the future I will be looking to join a Kinship. Just leveling right now and getting a feel for the community and the game.
See you all in game!
Hi there TSmitty , glad to see new people coming . Well, when i read champ , first thing that came to mind was the Order of Fate resident Champ Dandalfboy, whos always seeking how to beat on level instance content solo or with the less heals posible and could be a great mentor for an aspiring champ in the future ! of course theres a handfull of superb champs that at at best in their respected playstyle..for example Derlan in pvmp !! you will find plenty advice from good players at glff , welcome to arkenstone !
:) Thanks! I'm...relatively new? Still not sure how to work the system to it's full potential and not even level 30 yet? But I started out on Crickhollow as it was the recommended server and as I had no idea what I was doing/ had never played an MMO before. Then after a bit I just kind of went 'eh' and started looking for another server. Arkenstone seemed to have a reputation for being helpful and more mature and such, and you all have lived up to that. Just wanted to say thanks, I guess.
(because I'm a soloer without a kin who doesn't talk to anyone)
And I suppose it's a tribute to the Ark that I'm working the Faire as much as I can to get the Bounder's Boon on our server first... (ignoring the discussion of 'I really see nothing I want and am in fact working to unlock it for people who want said stuff' and other such things.) Currently at 953,600 tokens!
Hi there, I am kind of new to the server but not the game.
Now before you all freak out, I 5 years ago made a terrible mistake, and thought that the name that I was entering was a username, I wanted something silly and typed out what is now my forum name. I didn't notice until I made a post.
I like the thread, its nice to see something so welcoming.
Welcome new and returning players! The 'Stone is a great server with a lot of helpful people which is why I've stayed here exclusively since launch. Have taken a few breaks here and there, just coming off a short summer work induced break but eager to get back in the saddle and get ready to defend the Hornburg!
Feel free to look for me in game or PM here if any of you have any questions or anything, and if looking for a kinship check out the Arkenstone Kin Thread here: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...e-Kinship-List
Welcome to the Ark. I've been playing on this server since Day 1 and I must say in all my gaming experience the Ark has one of the best communities I've ever had the pleasure to be a part of.
Even the trolling on GLFF is lighthearted and funny...I hope so because I am one of those trolls :p
New folks don't be shy to ask for help...you will get it. Alot of bored vets sitting around with nothing to do but help the new players and wait for Helm's Derp to be released.
If you are in the 30-60 age range and like hanging out with older folks and a few geezers collecting social security then apply to The Meaning of Haste...we are building our ranks to get ready for the expansion.
See ya ingame
LOTRO is totally new to me! I feel lost most of the times, but it's been fun to learn this game together with my husband. We used to play another MMORPG that had a total different atmosphere, so LOTRO has been very challenging, but at the same time very interesting. We're lucky we got invited to a Kinship and that we've already met a few mates around the server. Still SO MUCH to learn!..
If anyone feel like being our mentor throughout the adventures of being a Captain and a Warden, please don't hesitate contacting us! We appreciate any help and we love making new friends. :)
glff is just our server size kin chat ..u get to know those crazy ppl, they are fascinating..Q is one of those, :3
