I wonder if you have tried Laurelin yet for it is actually the only Official English-speaking RP server of LotRO and benefits from the Roleplaying Rules and Policy; and thats just only to start with, for there is more to be said about this realm, that many rpers (and non rpers) would be interested to know and concider the differences/changes between Laurelin and any other servers, significant when it comes to a more mature community/immersive experience, Roleplay and a place where one can meet and be among, the most like-minded folk.
On quiet a few other worlds I have played as well, and none was/is anything like Laurelin. It is not perfect (what is..) nay, but imho, based on my (and others' too) experience/knowledge and from what I have seen in general, it is the nicest server to be on. The finest choice LotRO has to offer, for the reasons mentioned above (or at least many of those).
With that said (I could dwell more into details and other great advantages of this server but alas, I cannot do so now) the following may interest you and bring some hope to your despaired thoughts!
~ So, Laurelin Archives is the Webportal of Laurelin and its purpose is to provide the community with a place where players can share their work (stories, screens, artwork etc.), plan events and present their characters and kinships. - It is a great piece of art imo as well, due to its wonderful content. One can easily see from that website how much RP activity there has been on and there is on the server.
~ Additionally, the server also has a channel in game, for all the enthusiasts (that can mean non-rpers too) and roleplayers of the Middle-earth legendarium. A place to find other like-minded people/ask questions/discuss/share and learn all about RP, such as events, kins, character backstories/storylines etc and the lore/story of this magical, mythical world. This is the Official Page for it. - You would be among many other rpers there right from the start when you first join the server (if you wish to enable it, that is).
There might be few pockets of RP and individuals that would be interested for that on other servers, as some might tell you from those realms, but from I have seen and know (I have played on other servers too) Laurelin offers the most opportunities for a roleplayer; different, recurring RP events occur almost everyday and there are plenty of Roleplay kins to choose from.
Also as I said earlier, it is the only English-speaking RP server that benefits from the Roleplaying Rules and Policy and that has had a great impact on the way the server has been shaped every since its creation many years ago when LotRO started. (I could go on about how that has helped partly to create and preserve the atmosphere and overall maturity of the server but not this time..)
There is more than plenty Roleplay to be found, many rpers across the lands to meet and channel/s to help in a way, connect us all. And there are roleplayers around all the time, even during the quiter hours of the server; ever since Turbine took over, Laurelin has been having a steady increase in numbers and that continues and will always do so, for it is the only English-speaking server with the RP tag next to it. There are also some NA/US based kinships too.
Laurelin is a server that imo all rpers or/and fans of J.R.R Tolkien's world should at least give it a try and experience all that it has to offer before choosing where to finally settle.
