    An introduction to Riddles in the Dark

    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.


    • Communication:

    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.


    • Recruitment:

    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.

    • Progression

    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.


    Feel free to visit our website: www.riddlesinthedark.enjin.com and fill out a application form.

    Slow but sure we seem to be making it through the black hole

    Re: An introduction to Riddles in the Dark

    Just a quick heads up we have a spot for a hunter.

    So if you like the idea of fun raiding with little pressure with like minded mature people, that still gets results then perhaps Riddles is the kin for you.

    ps - remember your application will be kept hidden from public viewing.

    Grat's to everyone for getting wound challenge done. A hunter issue has sadly been holding us back on this challenge (we seem to break or lose our hunters to real life issues)!

    Special note should also go to Zil who we know was dying to be there when we done challenge but is not able to complete his transfer as of yet and is having a really hard time of it, good luck Zil and we all hope your issues with the transfer is soon resolved mate.

    Grats to everyone for finally downing DB on challenge mode tonight, we had a couple of go's last week but DB had not really been our focus so was surprised we killed him quite quickly when we think of how much time we had put into learning that challenge.

    Big grats all and a big thank you to everyone in the kin for being totally awesome kinnies and making raiding so much fun and enjoyable, even when i am trying to dish out loot and your all passing cos you feel someone else needs it more than you do and i end up tearing my hair out cos i can't give loot away in this kin

    Just a minor update: We are still raiding actively and having fun in Riddles. Yesterday we cleared the Dragon raid on tier 2, and we are running daily skirmish raids for armour pieces.

    Gratz to all in Riddles for the dragon kill

    Now after we cleared Tower of Orthanc tier 1 our aim is to start progressing on tier 2 and challenges. For that task we need more balanced groups. We are looking for 2-3 new players who can commit to raids 3-4 evening weekly.
