    The Last Alliance; A Kinship for those old enough to know better....

    (Apologies for being a totally lazy git and copying this from our CM thread)

    Do you remember the days before the interweb?

    Do you remember when computators were things in science fiction comics?

    Did you read Lord of the Rings, before the films, the games and even the radio adaptation?

    Did your first computer game load from a C90 cassette tape?

    Do you think the best use of a mobile phone is to make a telephone call?

    Do you spell words properly and use punctuation?

    Do you find yourself grumbling about stuff under your breath? All day? Every day?

    Do you prefer to ignore the numbers when it comes to birthdays?

    Do you struggle to understand the “L337 spk” of the “PUG”s you join?

    You’re old…….. aren’t you?

    Older than you care to admit?

    Well, there is an answer!

    Come and join The Last Alliance; a refuge for the more “mature” (in an age, if not mental, sense) gamer, sometimes known as “The Grumpy Old Gits”

    (To paraphrase Mr David Gilmour */bows*; “We like to think we are getting Older and Wiser, when in fact we are just getting old….”)

    We have been around since the year dot (and before). What is the current oldest rank for a kin? Well, that’s us!

    We have a fully active community, (albeit slightly creaky and smelling faintly of wee, Listerine and Deep Heat), with 100+ grumbling, mumbling, moaning and groaning members with many 65'ers, and numerous other characters scattered at all levels across Middle Earth

    We take our Zimmer frames, wheelchairs and walking sticks on many day trips to all sorts of exciting end-gamey places and also have a thriving bunch of young hearty adventurers willing to tackle the various threats of the starter areas too (well, it makes us feel really young - one can always dream) .

    So;

    if you would like to come and join us as we make our way through the countryside of Middle Earth,

    and moan about the flies, the food and the lack of toilet facilities (well, I haven’t seen one, have you?),

    come and visit us at http://thelastalliance.guildportal.com and have a moan!

    Alternatively accost one of our number in-game and talk to us, but please bear in mind that you may have to talk slowly and very loudly.

    Beat me to it
    Anyway time to unpack the china, feed the cats, lay a fire and settle down with a nice cup of Horlicks.

    And a cheery wave to all my friends.

    Did Turbine finish building ramps for your wheelchairs already?

    I guess that there is a Last Alliance kin on every server by now, because we aren't very original..

    after all.. we have been around for so long we don't do originality....

    Well, I played the last four Euro beta's... 4 months before launch? They already existed, and there was already a curious stale odour...

    This thread is a little corner of stability in an ever-changing world, a bit like an old people home in fact

    Aaaah, these modern technical thingies. It used to be good to just send letters in them olden days, but I suppose the pace of the game would be slightly slower if that would still be the norm.

    Anyway, Fitzer reporting that he has succeeded to sneak over to the other side.

    I know that our The Last Alliance was created before the game went in to Beta. The founder was informed by CM, via the forums, that he had a better chance of getting a Beta key if he had an established group of players ready for testing, and thus he founded The Last Alliance.

    It took me a little longer then others to get here, after not really understanding what to do (why couldn't this be done by snail-mail? ). But here now.
