Good morning!

I ran into Tollers this morning and had a brief chat in which he said I could apply for associate membership and remain in my own kin.  I am now doing so!

I have fellowed with some of you before, Akribis the most.  I am a member of the Riders of the Riddermark (lotro-riders.net), also on Meneldor, but have enjoyed meeting the Inklings and would welcome other chances to fellow together.

Here are my characters.
Storiodoc Bucktrotter, hobbit burglar, explorer (only 50)
Starthelion Stormtrotter, man lore-master, historian
Stigli Lonelytrotter, dwarf guardian, tinker
Stepwise Toetrotter, hobbit hunter, armsman
Steowulf Helmtrotter, man captain, armourer
I also plan on a hobbit warden and perhaps a hobbit minstrel.
Starthelion can furnish any breed of pipeweed you might enjoy, including Wizard's Fire!

I am a fan of Tolkien who reads The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings every year.  I have studied C.S. Lewis my entire christian life, but have never read the works of other Inklings.  I have also lately been reading some of George MacDonald's works.  He was a hero of Tolkien and Lewis, and Lewis said that MacDonald influenced every work he wrote.

My favorite quest chains are the Ghost of the Old Took and Ronald Dwale stories, and the epic books.  I am not finished with 11 yet, though, so don't tell me what comes next.

I enjoy soloing, but also any kind of grouping, whether it be quests, raids, PvMP (never tried as a creep), or just grinding deeds.  I enjoy the constantly changing dynamic of the Ettenmoors quite a bit, and in someways find it to be the most immersive part of the game.

In real life I am happily married for 11 and 1/2 years (today!), a retired USAF bassoonist, current letter carrier (Quick Post!), and future nurse.  My wife, also a bassoonist is now an insurance agent.  We live in Omaha, Nebraska and also work with the Omaha Area Youth Orchestras.

Thanks for your consideration!

Yours in fellowship,
Stephen "Trotter"

Welcome Trotter.

You are happily accepted as an associate. PLease take some time to look over our ROE. When we run major instances and Raids, we use a RP and DKP system. Take time to read over that and feel free to ask questions if you have them.

We also have an ally CDOME. They are currently larger than us and tend to host the larger raids and events. In those cases, if you wish to earn/spend dkp, you'd need to sign up separate with them. If you were a member, you would be automatically signed up with all allies, but as associate, you'll need to manage that.

We are always pleased to have more Inklings fans. See you in Moria!

Thanks for having me!

To the person who pm'ed me, I am unable to access my mail for some reason even though I'm logged in.  Please pardon my lack of a response.

In addition to my other characters I now have a wonderful hobbit warden, Stuffingrin, and an elf rune-keeper, Sarnpeth, which is Sindarin for Rock-word.  I have a love-hate feeling about that one.  I'm trying to come up with a back-story for his bio.  He must be from Silmaril times.  I feel guilty for enjoying playing the class because I wish it wasn't in the game.  Does anyone else share my guilty feelings, or is that the subject of another thread?

Anyway, thanks again for having me.  I look forward to meeting more of you in-game.

At your service and your families,
Stephen "Trotter"

p.s.  Does anyone know where the name Trotter appears in Tolkien's works?

To access your mail, click on the "mail" header to the left (a column). The actual mail symbol at the top does nothing.

Your settings look to be good for now. Your PM is probably from the site indicating your status acceptance.

Sweet, thanks for posting Veradan!  Hopefully we'll be able to start seeing each other on each other's calendars now.

Greetings,

    My in game name is Vorth and I am a member of Fenrir's Pack (A small Kin).  I spent a fair portion of the day grouped with Drewden running GS and HoM, in which we were finally able to beat the end boss.  Drewden asked if I might be interested in forming an Alliance with the Inklings and truth be told, I enjoyed our play time enough that I think it is worth exploring.

Currently, it would probably be just myself (Vorth) and my wife's character, Swee.  I am a 60 Lore Master and she is a 60 Minstrel.

Thanks for your time.

Greetings... I'm too lazy to write my own post so I'm hijacking part of Vorth's,

    My in game name is Swee and I am a member of Fenrir's Pack (A small Kin).  I spent a portion of the day grouped with Drewden running epic quests and water wheel. Swee is my 60 minstrel who is also a supreme master cook.

Thanks for your time.
