Hello Kin! I've joined up in the Kin a week or two ago, but I apologize for not posting earlier!
I am Azahria in game as a hunter, Explorer; Ladiama as RK, Tinker; Amazia as Minstrel, woodworker; and Leotna as Boerning, Armourer. As you can see, I'm an altoholic! I'm also birthing a new Loremaster which will join up soon with you (Lilyama)
IRL, I played LOTRO in beta and for a couple years through Moria. When it hit FTP, I gave it a break. Back then I played pretty much all the time with my son. We've played together all the well-known MMORG's, through his high school and college and now as a 40-something year old. That makes me a 60-something year old. :-) My son now doesn't have as much time as I do. But he'll pop in now and then and play with me. It's always nice and nostalgic when he does.
I am a classical violinist and Covid put me out of work. Hopefully soon that will resume and I won't have as much time. But at the moment, I've got a lot of free time, and am very much enjoying coming back to the world of Middle Earth! I am a casual player, and enjoy the questing experience very much. I've never been enthusiastic about endgame raids and PVP, because it's just simply too stressful for me. However, I do love to join up with other people for instances and group content during questing, and I hope there are others in the kin who also love the questing experience.
Oh, and I'm "Tideland" on discord.
Tideland, you fit in perfect with a lot of the kin as we are a very diverse group. We are definitely not all endgamers, although some are and that's great too. Quite a few folks in their 60s as well, couples both married and not, father/daughter/mother/sister/son teams...etc. And a lot of us just like to quest as well. Welcome to the kin and we hope we will please you as your new Middle-Earth family!
