Strayhold is currently recruiting. We've been around for a long time, we're a medium size kin with a lot of very long-term active members. We do like hobbits, but the reason to like hobbits is a topic of some debate on our forums. To some, hobbits are best roasting over a spit and are deeeeelicious. To others, hobbits are for...well, the usual hobbit stuff. Ale and dancing, I suppose.
We definitely are used to aggro/party wipes. Usually this is due to our kin leader, Blackhawk, but we can adjust to hobbit-led wipes as well. There are definitely lots of Lembas and pies as well.
Have a look at our website--http://kinship.strayhold.com. We've got a pretty active forum with lotsa fun stuff. Drop by and have a look and see if we might be what you're looking for.
