Daingean has gracioulsy volunteered to organize set times each week to organize and run skirmishes for those interested. Skirmishes can be alot of fun and help teach groups how to play as a group, offer unique rewards and provide a fun way to RP battles. You must be level 20 to do then and the opportunities for then increase as you level.

Will be adding 2 nights per week to start on Wednesday and Friday evenings. If the times do not work for you, but you want to participate please let either Daingean or I know.

For now skirmishes will start around 5:30 PM PST, 8:30 PM EST

I have posted a signup sheet for both events. This is to try to pin down both dates and times for each event.

As you all know I live on the US West Coast and so it is very hard for me to attend some Kin events in the evening, so I posted this in order to get people to tell me when are good times.

Please understand I cannot make events convenient for everyone, but would sincerely like to try to get a good turnout for each.

Because going into Moria as group has been a long term goal of mine for years now... Not having people to play with and enjoy that experience is why I left LOTRO the last time... It was just too sad, not having anyone share the experience with me.

This time I would like to go with a group, but the majoriy of playtime for me to quest is on weekends in at evening for you EUR people and in the mornings for me in CA. So that being said please sign up and set comments for your preferred availabilty. Remember is want all of us able to go, to go...

So again if you want to attend an event... TELL me when you can come. Remember I am working with people in every time zone in the US, in Britain, in Europe, In Turkey and in Austrailia and Singapore....

It has been a busy few weeks! I have been recruiting almost daily and so welcome to all the new faces and voices. I wanted to keep you all aware of several things and thought this work be easier than in game mail.

Kin House
First for those of you who are new, we have a lovely kin house and many of us live in the village of Naping outside of Bree. Currently there are only a few small homes left available. Everyone should have the ability to go to thouse with a special "call" skill.

Band Practice
This week I am working behind the scenes to set up a shared files site are for music. We are still looking for a few dedicated musicians, or those who are longing to be. Both Veignar and I are bale to teach you how to play instruments, so if you would like to play with the band please let us know. Our long term goal is to play in performances across Laurelin.

I will host a contest here on the website to offically name our band. So please send me your ideas so I can post them!

The Journey to Moria
Several of us already have access and have been waiting for a nice group of other kin mates to join us for our a RP journey through Moria as the kin. It is a wonderful opportunity and we hope a memorable experience. Please if you are attempting to catch up to join us let us know so we know. At this point I am guessing it will be sometime around the first of February. Everyone is welcome but you must be able to get in the dark and deary place to join us! It is level 50....

Events
Many are looking for kin to join skimishes, instances, do runs for deeds (which are really lucrative if you need a few gold...) and grouping for epics and quests. I am usually in the Pony in the evening for RP and music, and we can extend this to the kin hall or further afield should people wish. Organized events are being developed so if you have ideas about what you would like to do or run some, please let me know.

We are going to try two weekly events, the first is RP night on Sat evening for we US folk. The second is band practice on Sunday afternoon. Both will be held in the kin house unless otherwise indicated.

In addition we will be having a Grand fete to celebrate our leaving for Moria, sometime in February. There will be a feast , music, tales and a dance.

Thank you everyone for being the great people you are, beacons of hope and honor, for those around us.

It is less than 1 week until we can purchase a kin house. Many of you expressed interest in moving to the neighborhood the house is in to make the kin feel even more like the community it already is.

In order to do so, I need a rough head count of the people who would like to try to find a house all together, or move into the neighborhood we decide on. I will likely wait till an entire neighborhood opens up and then buy the kin house.

You may only own 1 home for each account. Upkeep is paid weekly and can be paid up to 6 weeks in advance.

So for those interested and who may not know, there two sizes on player homes:

The Standard House- Each neighborhood contains 16 addresses with Standard Houses. The floor plan is two small rooms, one with a fireplace. The purchase costs are between 1 gold and 1 gold 150 silver with maintenance costs ranging between 47 silver 50 copper and 57 silver 50 copper respectively.

The Deluxe house - Each neighborhood contains 10 addresses with Deluxe Houses. The floor plan is one large room with a fireplace and two small rooms. The purchase costs are between 7 gold and 8 gold 50 silver with maintenance costs ranging between 150 silver and 172 silver 50 copper respectively.

Please let me know if you are interested BEFORE SUNDAY 12/2 and I will add you to the list.
