An introduction to Riddles in the Dark
Since we have been roaming Middle-Earth for some time, we would just like to introduce ourselves here on the forums:
• About Kinship
Riddles in the dark was founded by a couple of experienced Lotro players. We are a small kin focused on PvE although we do have quite a few people that PvP. Our ongoing aim is completing all end-game whilst maintaining a friendly atmosphere and leaving room for real life commitments.
• Kinship goals:
The kin has been around since BG days, and we have completed every raid on challenge. We raid for the challenge and fun. Gear is important but it is a means to an end. We are currently doing a mixture of BG runs, skirmishes, Helegrod and ToO.
• Kinship members:
In Riddles in the dark we are all equal players, titles mean nothing and all raid team players' main character is an officer. Everyone gets their say and decisions are reached in a democratic fashion. We consider our kinmates as friends and treat each other accordingly.
• Loot and crafting rules:
With the new looting system, we have adjusted our loot-rules to fit the current state of the game. The main rule in Riddles has always been common sense and we encourage people to share loot with kinmates before selling items on the auction house.
We cover all kinds of crafting within the kin, material costs are the maximum payment required for kinship crafting.
We use Teamspeak as main communication. Everyone is required to use it and speak English no matter what primary language one speaks. Since we have many different nationalities represented in the kin it gives us the opportunity to listen to many lovely accents.
Although we seldom recruit actively our doors are by no means closed. If you are an experienced, respectful individual with a passion for the game and an interest in Riddles in the Dark please feel free to check out our website or contact any one of our members in game. We have a community of mature players with an average age over 30 at the moment and our kin-chat tends to go to the wicked adult side so we do not recruit people below the age of 18. We want a small kin with raiders who know each other well, so we expect our raiders to be very active and online regularly.
We are currently clearing Battle for Erebor and Fires of Smaug on Tier 2. We are also doing weekly runs in Ost Dunhoth with the odd run in Helegrod.
• Raid time and schedule:
Our raiding times are usually between 7 pm GMT and 10 pm GMT although they can continue beyond this time particularly when we are learning a new raid.
