Tears of the Valar is a rank 10 kinship established by the time Lotro was launched.
This is the legacy of ToTV:
Tears of The Valar relates Tolkiens world by the tale of the Vala Nienna: ”Lady of Mercy". Vala Nienna, one of the Queens of the Valar, was the tutor of Olórin (Gandalf) and he became her greatest pupil as we all know by now. She weeps constantly. But she does not weep for herself; she does not weep of endless grief, but rather of hope and the endurance of the spirit.
Members of ToTV are all tears of the vala Nienna and are bound to follow in the footsteps of Gandalf and thereby serve as protectors of the Lady of Mercy by disclosing evilness she otherwise cannot see for the mercy of her mind.
The tears of Nienna, the Lady of Mercy, are those of healing, pity and potency; not of sadness.
As u can imagine we have a lively fantasy and we love the world of Tolkien. We are both casual and addicted players of Lotro. ToTV memebers have a wide range of age (20-65). We strive to be polite, and respectful towards any other members and players in lotro; we expect the same in return from you. We respect each individual members way of playing the game. We share willingly our waste knowledge and skills of the game. We like to group up and do instances, but we also respect those of us that prefer soloing but with the option of getting good advices by the kinchat. We have no demands of players being very “skillfull” - we have room for all levels of players – as long as u are open minded to players that play lotro in a different way than you. Join a kin grp almost all evenings if u like: for an hour or two - or 30 min if thats what u have. There is no blaming here: RL is always most important but this is our free virtual spot in a messy world
After a long period with dwindling and members leaving the game or leaving the kin for another kin we now hold a good bunch of relaxed casual players. We do 6/3 player instances and sometimes a 12 player instances with 7-9 players. We are not in dire need of new members but we welcome all friendly players that like to join ToTV. Whatever we do ingame, we aim to stay polite and fun-loving, yet respectfull towards each other. We think - ourselfs - that we do ok along this style. Its realy is a nice kin we have got here!
