Adoption is a nice little touch. When I started playing I found a lovely friendly kin who I felt very welcome in, but a couple of months later I discovered that a very dear RL friend also played on my server. I didn't want to dump my kin and join his, so I had him adopt my main as his daughter his char is a hobbit so it goes some way to explain how my main - an elf - ended up with a hobbit house in Michel Delving
