Ignore the trolls, HomingEagle, lol, that's part of the Windy moors, don't take it too serious, it is their type of humour ^^

Are you planning on going freep or creepside or both? If you are VIP, I'd advice to just go creepside and grab a warg for a bit. Go and explore while in stealth, warg gives you nice independence to do so.
As for rules.. yes, if 2 have a 1o1 going on, it is bad to interfere, but same time they should flag that in OOC if that's what they are up to. No one can expect mind reading, and if you see a fight --> it is a pvp area and you should be free to join in.
I can understand how the moors can feel intimidating to start, but do not have yourself put off. I was always anti pvp actually, coming from other games, but someone talked me into trying the moors and I never regretted that fateful day. I was petrified to say the least, but made a warg and learned by watching and eventually joining a tribe.
The drama is part of the package unfortunately at times, just spoke with someone who said she ended really upset as she ran a healer freepside and got bullied for spam healing when she finally decided to try creepside too (no, it wasn't Din :P). Stuff like that is sad, as it can make players feel unwelcome, when in truth they just didn't know enough at the time to understand when to hold back a bit. Especially minis can have that problem :'/ but don't ever let yourself be discouraged. Tempers can flare up in the moors, it is pvp and some can get quite competitive, but the fun outweighs all that for most parts, and don't listen to those running us Windy noobs down either - we are doing just fine, smaller server, often issues with uneven fights, but we keep coming back to it despite all the moaning, which says sth about the windy moors - great bunch of people out there, truly, just give us a chance to prove we are the best noobs in Middle Earth ^____^
