We're a kinship on the Evernight server since the start of Lotro, dancing our way through Turbine's Middle Earth. We still have some old time players that have stayed with the game but we also have newer members that have started the game in the past few months.
Doing the odd kin-event like horse-races or secret-santa gives us that real family feeling, we're all about having some casual fun to get those daily real life troubles out of the system. Raiding is not our focus as we usually have issues getting enough people online at the same time as our memberbase is scattered all over the world, mostly Europe and UK but we also have a few Americans, a fellow from near Honkong and some from South Africa. One surely can imagine the time differences
Join the Guardians of Middle Earth (The Gnomes in short) and find out we are not hardcore raiders, we are not ‘Ettenmoors only’, we are not casual players…we are all these things and everything in between. We are a family of people who enjoy playing the game, running instances and raids when possible, taking down a war band, fighting creeps or helping our family members get through Old Forest and Angmar without dying a million horrible deaths. We have a few kamikaze-like players that make every instance pull interesting and often end up in some good old crying of laughter over Teamspeak.
When we are not raiding, or helping lower level players, we sit around making fun of each other so we are looking for mature people over 18 years who enjoy a good laugh, often at their expense. If you think you're too old, we think you might be mistaken, our ages vary from 20 up to 60+ and we all treat each other as if we're equal. Taking time to explain how certain instances go and taking that extra coffee break 'cause the kids are misbehaving.. it's all part of being a Gnome!
