Kinship House: 1 High Road, Mellinch, Bree-Land Homesteads page: DBS BlackSheep

______________________________ ______________________________ __

Age requirement: None. We do not restrict on the basis of age. We have members whose ages range from 15 to 70 and everyone gets along just fine. Median age is 30+ so I guess that makes us "adult"

Note: 'Adult' to us means mature and responsible. Not 'we swear like drunken sailors at every opportunity'. Kin and Voice Chat are PG-13.

How to Join: We don't have an application (this is a game not a job) and we don't require interviews (again, game not job). All we ask is you read our Rules. If you agree, Just send a PM here or Request an invitation on our forums.

A little About us:
We'll be celebrating our 8th Anniversary in June 2009! We've been in LOTRO since closed beta, and our members have experience in a number of games including FFXI, Eve, SWG, EQ2, WoW, EQ, DAoC, and even MxO (yeah we know). And many FPS games as well.

Our kinmates are our friends. We're made up of IRL families, friends and co-workers, friends who met in game and became IRL friends. We share Holidays and special events together, in game and out of game, whenever we can.

A new guild member on day one is treated no differently than a long time vet. We'll pick on you just as much
