Looking for a kin
After recently abandoning my dead kin, and becoming kinless for the first time since the very beginning of lotro, I am now looking for a new kin to call home.
A little bit about me:
I've been playing lotro since the very beginning, I am a very casual player. Due to my work, I can go weeks without logging in, and then during school holidays I'll log in most days. Despite being a casual player, I have two level capped toons, a minstrel who is geared well enough for what I like to do and a runekeeper. I also have 8 other toons at different stages of leveling, which I go though phases of playing (currently my level 43 burglar).
I don't group very often, almost never these days if I'm honest. I've not tried any of the most recent instances, actually the last time I grouped with any regularity was when OD was released (quite a while ago!). However, I would be willing to group once in a while.
In my previous kin I started as a recruit and ended up as kin leader. I loved working with my kin, at our highest point we were very active and ran activities regularly.
What I'm looking for in a kin:
I'm looking for a nice, small friendly kin, preferrably with 10 or less active members; chatty but don't expect you to join in with conversations all the time. I've been in a large kin before and it didn't suit me. A kin that helps each other out, but won't get offended when I just want to get on with my own thing (I love helping people out, but sometimes I just log in to relax by myself). Also a kin that will not boot me out if I don't log in for 6 weeks, it really can be that long in between log ins if I get really busy.
So this was a bit longer than I expected so thanks for reading.
If you think you might me the right kin for me, then please /tell me ingame to either Allrianne, Aikanar or Lioba. Or if I'm not online, then please pm me.
You would be very welcome to join my kin, First Knights, if you are over 18. Things are quiet at the moment but there are usually 3-4 people playing during the day, and my best friend and myself play a lot more in the school holidays as he's a schoolteacher so has a nice long break (and his playing pattern sounds a lot like yours!). The Kin is very friendly and helpful and it doesn't matter if you don't do group content. Look out for me/send me mail in game if you're interested, I'll be playing tomorrow afternoon again UK time :)
Our kin website is at www.first-knights.eu :)
You sound just right! I'm a teacher too, so at least I know my not logging in for extended periods won't be a problem :)
I'll keep my eye out when I'm next online.
