    Durin's Folk [Dwarf-only Heavy RP]

    You stand in the Mukbû Sigintarâg, the Library of the Longbeards, in the Halls of Khuzd Belkul.
    Before you a stone table is placed. Standing firm on four massive pillars, the deep blue marble surface reflects the surroundings of the room.
    The sides and edges of the table are inlayed with a fine golden knotwork pattern. Upon the top of the table a thick leather book is placed.
    The cover of the book appears to be made of gold with a blue leather inlay. In its centre the head of Durin is displayed in gold and precious gems.
    The Runes on the cover read 'Mazarbul I'gelrûk Khazâd Durinul'unâkh' roughly translated it means Chronicle of Information about the Dwarrow of Durin's Hall.
    This Chronicle was given to Duinn, son of Muninn, who is son of Frerin son of Throrin by Dáin, king under the mountain, when he commissioned the order to establish the Kinship of Durin's Folk.
    The Chronicle contains all the information about and guidelines of the Kinship of Durin's Folk.


    Durin's Folk, created in 2011 on the Laurelin [EU] is a heavy RP kinship, unique because of a variety of reasons.
    To mention a few - we have unique events that incorporate Neo-Khuzdul, we host the Dwarrow Ting, and, although we are a heavy RP kinship,
    we are also oriented towards game progression, based and even sometimes blended with RP for extra fun.

    The kinship strives to come as close to Tolkien's description of the dwarves as possible, and offers players a change to indulge themselves in this legendarium.
    By offering Neo-Khuzdul and Lore lessons, we hope to broaden insight to the linguistic, cultural and societal aspects of what it means to be a dwarf in Middle-earth.

    Like true Dwarrows, we are proud of our heritage, our beards, our kin, our beards, our friendly community, and our beards.
    Did we mention that we are proud of our beards?
    All Joking aside, Durin's Folk is also home to a few well-known events and initiatives on Laurelin, such as the Dwarrow Ting, the Harnkegger Games, the Tablets of Khazadgund and the famed Rolling Kegs band.

    Our kinship works with a foundation based upon three important Pillars of Dwarrow society:


    We implemented these Pillars as subgroups in the kinship.
    You can learn more about the Pillars on the Durin's Folk Chronicles.

    We have different ranks and uniforms.
    One uniform system is for ceremonial purposes only, and mandatory for events deemed ceremonial.
    The other is free for all to use, with two exceptions of color.
    Furthermore, the kinship has a military side and a civil side: being active in one side does not exclude you from taking part in the other.
    The division is simply for what kind of RP is appropriate.

    If we sparked your interest and you want to learn more about us, please use our I'gelrûk links to read about more specific information about our Kinship.

    Re: The Kinship of Durin's Folk (Dwarf only RP-kin)

    So I just wanted to ask a few questions to get a better idea of the three different dwarf kins. Both my friend and I are making dwarves, and I want to make sure we pick the one that best suites our playing style (not to mention that he's new to online RP'ing, and I've only done it way back in the day on a persistent NWN world, so they'll be a bit of a "learning curve," so to speak)

    About how large is the kin?
    When is the group most active? (I realize the majority of the player base will be from across the pond, and we're both EST night players)
    Are there any recruitment restrictions? I.e., is the kin actively looking looking for specific classes.

    Thanks in advance!

    We're about 140 members and highly active, mostly around night time and some even further into the morning. No restrictions nor recruitment restriction or specific classes. Just good wholesome RP.
    We're most active during our events; we have four every week and they are different from each other, also, we have uniforms and ranks. Anything else please ask more or contact us in game.

    Note; that we have 4 weekly events, one of them being part of The Dwarrow Ting alliance events! With more events coming soon, and more collaboration with Ting members in the future.

    Check out the next event!
