Our kinship has sponsored a number of unique and exciting events including: Regular kin parties in the Shire on Thursdays , 8:30 to 10:00 PM, featuring games, music, pies, light RP, prizes, and fireworks. Party games include the Bad Joke Contest, Riddle Game, Hide-a-Hobbit, and more.. Weekly Raid Nights designed to be inclusive of all players, especially those who are new to raiding. These events are fun and friendly learning experiences. Slow and steady is the rule, with each of us learning from the others as we go along.. And more! [Joining:] Are you a hobbit? Are you a nice person, who wants to make friends and explore Middle-Earth with a wonderful group of other hobbits? Then get in touch! This might be the kinship for you.. All kinmates (other than Officers) are given the rank Kinswoman/Kinsman. You will never be booted from CH due to inactivity. If you are inactive for more than 100 days, you will be demoted to Recruit. But as soon as you log back in, an Officer will bump you back up to Kinsman/Kinswoman.. [Alts:] Concerning Hobbits is a hobbits-only kin, no exceptions.

    Kinships of Landroval Official Wiki

    Hey there can you match the list with the wiki's info please from

    Nost Amor
    (C, G, RP, XPD) Founded with the intent to provide a friendly, medium to heavy, lore-based Role Play alternative. Primarily elves but has grown to accept all other races of middle-earth. An unfolding storyline revolves around a core family group and their call for allies to combat the dark forces of Mordor throughout Middle-Earth. Members are called to aid in various forms during the continually evolving campaign. Independent member story lines and character developments outside of the main storyline are strongly encouraged ; http://nostamor.guildlaunch.com/index.php?gid=370683 ; in-game contacts: Aemthalion, Marillie
    Please note that Nost Amor has under gone/continues to go through some changes. The name has been changed to Thaldirith and the kin website was moved to http://thaldirith.enjin.com/. We accept all races, with strong presence of both elves (not breeland elves) and dunedain. The storyline does NOT revolve around one story or core family. Independent member story lines and character developments are still strongly encouraged.

    Thank you

    Thank you for bringing this to attention. Unfortunately, most of the kinships on the wiki site are either no longer with us, or their sites have long since been abandoned. If there is a particular group that you are associated with and represent, however, and would like to make such known to others through this thread, please do so.

    Bounders of the Shire in forum contact has changed, it's Gaming_Gal now. Tiempko is no longer Chief. He is still running the main Éclair group though.

    Aloha Breeon!

    I was checking the different links and would like to mention, that quite a lot of them are not existing anymore.

    First of all: Every link to a guildportal Website is not existant anymore, since Guildportal completly shutdown in January 2016 (quite a few kins listed guildportal links here)

    Kins with no Guildportal but still not working links:
    Chetwood Crafters Union -> Guildlaunch still exists, but chetwoodunions is nowhere to be found there
    Cloak and Dagger -> besides the guildportal link, the Digitaltech link isn´t opening as well anymore
    Free Peoples
    House Rindol -> Didn´t check Facebookpage, but Website does not seem to exist anymore
    Order of the Silver Flame -> Guildlaunch still exists, but the mentioned kin is nowhere to be found there

    Hope the information is of some use.

    Happy Hunting!

    Warsong Nation on Landroval

    Hi all,

    Warsong Nation has landed here from Silverload, but we seem to be in a heavy reorganization phase.

    I will reply again as we build a system of contact spots. Pretty sure we will be recruiting, I wasn't even an officer on Silver and now I seem to be chief water bearer.

    Any former members are actively invited to contact me via PM and express their interest level in helping us to reboot after the move. Help greatly appreciated.

    Leombruin, Feadhilfien, Banolf of Warsong Nation.

    I would ask, are there niches as yet unfilled on the server?

    Dauntless Vigil, Now Recruiting




    Then and Now:

    Thaldirith (Sindarin for "Dauntless Vigil") began a couple years ago as an all-elven role-playing kinship with a story-line that evolved around a core family group returning from Valinor. Their call for allies to combat the dark forces of Mordor throughout Middle-earth eventually included other character races, and independent member story-lines outside the main campaign became more commonplace.

    Our focus has since become more all-inclusive, emphasizing group content, deeding, crafting, and even pvp to some extent. We remain a smaller kinship (4 pages) with a core group of regular members (in the Eastern, Central, and Mountain Time Zones). At this time we would like to add a few more members to continue enjoying the game with. We can be social but aren’t too chatty (most conversation is game-related). Ideal candidates will be friendly, helpful, mature, and active. Obligations and affiliations with other kinships are fine (and could be seen as a benefit in so much that it connects players); Alts are ok, but we aren’t looking for players to park one in the kinship and then not be seen again for weeks on end. Role-playing is not required.

    We also offer various amenities including (3) kinship houses and multiple housing chests, as well as crafting stations, various cosmetics, class and rep items, and recognition of officer status to level capped characters in good standing. If this sounds like it might be a good fit, please contact Diorn or Baraer in-game (by mail or tell) or send a private message here on the forums. You may also choose to visit our website and apply or send a message there: http://thaldirith.guildlaunch.com/ Thanks and we’re looking forward to hearing from you.

    The Ninny Hammers

    The Ninny Hammers (G, RPL, S and U)

    We are a musical kinship devoted to performing on Bree Town stage every Saturday at 2.00pm. Musicians are not required to join us every week and guests are very welcome.

    We would encourage musicians to join us if they wish to experience a diverse, welcoming group of players who enjoy music of all genres.

    As the leader of The Ninny Hammers, I would like to expand the social side of the kinship as well as encouraging more members to create music, lyrics, performances and join as rp encouragers. We are very relaxed and have a light hearted approach to playing LOTRO. Our core motivation is for all of us to have fun and enjoy how we spend our gaming time.

    We have a guildlaunch site: http://theninnyhammers.guildlaunch.co m/

    Both Oceanic Warriors and The Old Ways are closed down and should be removed from the list. (Citation for Oceanic Warriors: http://www.oceanic-warriors.com/foru...d6a14#38425943)

    I came across a new Lotro log-in screen image yesterday encouraging players to participate in the forums. I am pleased to re-introduce this thread to players and I will edit it as I am able. I only ask that if you would like your kinship added to the list that it be rank 10, or that your tribe be well established. Regardless, feel free to advertise your kinship, tribe, or event here. Happy Gaming.

Our kinship has sponsored a number of unique and exciting events including: Regular kin parties in the Shire on Thursdays , 8:30 to 10:00 PM, featuring games, music, pies, light RP, prizes, and fireworks.

We have a number of other players originating from other servers as well, not just Vilya, as well as other games such as LOL, Archeage, Rift, Star wars, Guild Wars, EQ, and plenty of others. (2) - We have been the top PvE kin, server first, on all tier 2 hard mode content from the watcher back in Moria up until the present on Vilya, Including North America second for Balrog lvl 65 and Original challenger of Saruman on both Vilya and Imladris. We like to make sure everyone’s main character is fully geared before everyone’s alts (when we actually have raid content to do). We currently run all raids on an EST time zone time, usually 9 or 10 pm. However we are looking to also recruit a lot of EU players and late night players, Oceanic etc. We want to Build on to our kin by having players online at all times day and night! (3) - We are also a very strong PvP kin. We enjoy going out on freep and creep and having a good time. (4) - We do require you to use Teamspeak for all in game raiding. You don’t have to speak if you don't want to, but you need to at least be able to listen. (5) - We would like to keep the members age limit at 17 and up. (6) - You must have at least 1, level 100 character as well, unless you are an old player returning to the game.. We want every member to be able to relax and have fun be able to BS and have a good time. We want people who are not afraid to speak up and people who enjoy PvE, PvP, leveling, deeding, you name it. I won’t lie though, if you are looking for role-play, that won’t happen here, Although we are not haters on anyone who does rp. You can apply on our kin site at http://fbf.guildlaunch.com or if you have any questions please contact an officer from FBF on Landy or send an in game mail or pm to Certified or Xzargos.

Friend channels in Lotro and other games for finding alts/cross-kinned characters/others outside the kinship. Clean. Courteous. Tolkien chat. Full members are welcomed in any branch of game played. Overall guild also includes Tolkien-onlines who don't game but like to add to their Tolkien Site. Members choose a "primary name" (a character from any of Tolkien's stories not in use by another member, allowing recognition, instant relationships, joking fun, and an increased awareness of the stories with the kinship's unique style of light RP ; http://valarguild.org/ ; https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...al-Valar-Guild ; in-game contacts: Fainan or Tinwetari ; email contact: varda.elentari@gmail.com ; forum contact: Fainan

    Wardens of Numenor
    (formerly known as The Numenorean Guard)
    (G, PvP, S) A Casual/Questing/Leveling Raiding Kinship that feels it has grown into one of the better known and respected raiding kins on the server. A kinship dedicated to End-game content and maximizing everything that Lord of the Rings has to offer. They are and are not a Hardcore Raiding Kin, in that they also find time to have a little fun on the way ; www.ng.guildlaunch.com ; forum contact: Wyllidor

    Warders of the Weald
    (formerly known as The Numenorean Guard)
    (C, G, RPL, S) This group views itself as a happy, easy going kinship of friends, and in many cases family. Socializing, role-playing (rp-light : gatherings and festivals), and music enjoyed. Crafting and questing. Alliances with other kinships that do scheduled raids. Not : Power levelers, sparring fans, fans of profanity, a big raid/or/skirmish oriented kinship (may raid in future, but isn't a goal to be a massively raid active and most members do not enjoy it). Looking for that are happy with people being friends with them, and socializing, roleplaying, and playing music, as that is a lot of what they do. Players wanting to contribute with materials for crafters and help others a plus. At least an hour is asked to be spent with the officer when petitioning to recruit. Upon acceptance, players will have a 2 week period in which to get to know the kinship and vica versa ; http://wotw.guildlaunch.com/ ; http://wmbg.enjin.com/ ; http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.asp...&TabID=3027890
