    What about Second Breakfast?



    Second Breakfast is as old as the server itself, but we're still going strong.
    Today we're looking for a few more great members to add to our family.


    We are a social kin with a love for all aspects of the game. The environment is friendly and welcoming, mature but filled with slightly off-the-wall humour. And we strive to keep our calendar full of activities for casual players at times fit for our American and European kin members. We help each other and provide the server with fun and unique activities.

    The early days of Second Breakfast
    Second Breakfast was only supposed to last for a couple of weeks. The kin was founded by members of other servers to help this new server during the F2P transition. But the community we built in that short time was not one that could be abandoned. Though we grew to be a mid-sized kinship we still keep that original close-knit atmosphere.

    We started the server tradition of Elevenses, one that continues to this day on Sundays at 11am EST (server time) and Mondays at 11pm in the Bird & Baby Inn. We later introduced the popular Bread & Jam Sessions, Friday nights at 9pm until late into the night in the Prancing Pony.

    Second Breakfast today
    Second Breakfast has a strong core group of veteran and new players from around the globe, an alliance with several other great Crickhollow kinships, and a dedicated group of officers. Our website is no mere placeholder--the forums are active every single day, we have an extensive knowledge base, and many of our events are planned on the site. In fact, our site is the second most active Lotro site on all of Guild Launch.

    Today we embrace the many aspects of this game, and try to further the instance goals of our kin members while maintaining a balance with our more casual events. Though we are not a role-playing kin, we do offer a number of RP friendly events and encourage RP whenever possible. Our two kin bands have played at numerous events, including Weatherstock and Shirefest. But not all of our events are tilted towards the end game and social players: some of our events have included lowbie instance runs, deed runs, themed event weeks, and rerunning old cluster content for deeds and fun.

    We continue to hold special social events for the server throughout the year, such as the Shirefest concert, rallies, costume contests, horse races, holiday celebrations and all sorts of server parties.


    Member expectations and the application process
    Kin members should be mature, helpful, and respectful. All members have the latitude to play the game however and whenever they like, and must respect the playstyle of others. We promote a hobbit outlook of sharing food, drink and music, and wish for this kind and giving attitude to be reflected whether our members are wielding a walking stick or a sword.

    All new recruits must apply through our website. We do not require this because we are being elitist. It is only meant to ensure that new recruits are a good fit for us, and we are a good fit for them. This application process has helped us maintain a positive and friendly environment inside the kinship and has weeded out potential trouble-makers before they could ever be tagged into the kin. Our officers review the applications and respond within a day or two.

    Want another helping of Second Breakfast?
    If you would like to learn more about our kinship, please poke around our website at http://secondbreakfast.guildlaunch.co m and see what we're all about. Feel free to contact any of our members or officers at a Second Breakfast event (our events are posted regularly in the Crickhollow forum) or if you find one of us running around town. You may also wish to type "/who breakfast 1 100" in game to find a list of our online, non-anonymous players. Our members will be glad to answer your questions or find you an officer to speak with.

    In-game officers to contact include:
    Finarphin, Larksong, Amabelwyn, Cheggra, Dallofin, Everbrock, Gingerbreadlass, Hazvar, Pontin, Rosalie, Scropolo, and Spiffity, but be warned--we are all altaholics, each and every one of us. But if you do happen to catch one of us on our main character (or any other) we hope you'll have a little chat with us. Second Breakfast is a very special sort of kinship, and we hope we can share that magic with you.




    At Second Breakfast there's always room for one more...

    The folks at Second Breakfast are a wonderful crew. They've got a very good thing going on in Crickhollow.

    Re: What about Second Breakfast?

    Thanks for the compliment, Harper!

    I did want to clarify one thing from the recruiting post--the /who command does have the odd quirk of sometimes adding in a level range or location. Be sure to clear those extra fields out and just keep the breakfast in the who field to find us, or simply fill out an application on our website and we'll find you. We had one interested party coming up empty while standing right next to a non-anonymous kin member, so I don't want anyone else to get confused.

    We also invite everyone to join us this weekend for the Crosser of Roads run and the Shire Rally.

    Though they are what we are known for, these casual social events are only one side of Second Breakfast--we have regular instances runs, bi-weekly raids, various low and mid-level runs, deed events, TP farm expeditions, and much more. I hope you'll drop by and find out a bit more about our kinship.

    hey, I just came back from a long time away from the game and I remember everything you used to do and wonder if you're still around and recruiting.

    Wow, you really did some digging to find this thread! I definitely need to update that initial post with some officer changes we've made over the past year and a half.

    Anyway, welcome back to the game. Second Breakfast is still very much alive, and we always welcome mature and friendly players. Feel free to take a look around our website, and if you like what you see put in an application. And if you want to learn more or have any questions as you get reacclimated with the game, feel free to send me a tell or a letter on my main character, Rosalie.

    Quite a few old SB members have returned recently, and I know some were removed from the kin due to inactivity.

    Just in case any of you come here first, I wanted to make sure you know that you are always welcome to come back home. Just type "breakfast 1 95" (minus the quotation marks) and ask any online member to put you in touch with an officer.

    Potential new recruits are also welcome to take a look around our website (http://secondbreakfast.guildlaunch.com/) and put in an application. The officers will review the application and get back to you as soon as possible.

    And all Crickhollow players are invited to join us for our server-wide special events (we'll be announcing the December event soon) and weekly events:

    Fridays at 8pm EST(server time)/5pm PST: Bread & Jam at the Prancing Pony, Bree-town
    Saturdays at 12:30pm EST/17:30 GMT: Breakfast Club concerts at the Bree-town South Gate
    (* on the first Saturday of every month the band moves the show to the Landroval server *)
    Sundays at 11am EST/16:00 GMT: Early Elevenses at the Bird & Baby Inn, Michel Delving
    Mondays at 11pm EST/8pm PST: Elevenses at the Bird & Baby Inn, Michel Delving

    Second Breakfast is always happy to welcome new members to our kin family, whether you've been playing since day one or started just yesterday. We do all of our invites based upon applications at our website, but if you'd like to know more I hope you'll contact one of us in game by typing "/who breakfast 1 100" and asking anyone who comes up on the list if you may speak with an officer.

    We're primarily a social kin, and we organise tons of activities planned within the kinship and for the entire server, such as the upcoming Winter Carnival and our four weekly events (listed in my signature). We try our hardest to keep a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all, and we help each other out by maintaining crafting, cosmetic, decoration, reputation and other special goods warehouses. We're not the biggest kinship around, but with over 100 players active over the last couple of months we have enough members to keep chat lively but not so many that we don't have the chance to get to know one another.

    I'm bumping this not because we need to recruit, but because I can't help but tell you about the wonderful kinship we've built together. Take a look at our website to find out what we're about, and whether or not you decide to join us I hope you'll think about stopping into one of our events.

    Second Breakfast is still going strong! We're ready to host our Second Annual Shirefest August 14-17 and are planning our kinship's Fifth Anniversary celebration to take place September 11-14. For more information, please visit us at our website.


    Regular events include:


    Elevenses, a Crickhollow tradition since its inception, held inside Michel Delving's Bird & Baby Inn for Early Elevenses on Sundays at 11AM (EST/server time) and Evening Elevenses on Mondays at 11PM. All well-mannered folk are welcome, including Elves, Dwarves, and Men, but expect a Hobbity warm and welcoming atmosphere at the Inn. It's a great opportunity to spend relaxing time with your friends or making new ones, to role-play (or learn how), to share some music (or some pies!) and to socialize with your Crickhollow neighbors in a casual setting.


    Bread and Jam Sessions take place in the Prancing Pony every Friday night from 9-11PM server time. Share your new or favorite tunes, have an ale or two, kick up your heels in a dance, and enjoy some informal playing time with Breakfast Club. A Bard is readily available to sell inexpensive instruments, and you don't need to be a minstrel--everyone enters Middle Earth with the ability to play music and dance!

    And join the Breakfast Club, a multi-kin band, for our concerts at the Bree-town South Gate *almost* every Saturday at 1PM. The band travels to the same location in Landroval for our concert every first Saturday of the month.

    Second Breakfast...

    A kinship full of friendly, helpful, courteous, entertaining, intelligent, creative, fun, and funny players, willing to band together to make the LOTRO experience more than just a game.

    It's not just a guild, it's an extended family; complete with caring parents, wild siblings, and that fun-but-weird uncle with his awesome leather biker jacket and wide-brimmed fedora.
