  Davethegit: HI
  Saessa: Servers back up.
  Saessa: Servers came back for 30 mins then went down again.
  Alant: Patience is a virtue lol
  Saessa: And here we go again...:(
  Alant: we've had something similar some time ago. Just cross our fingers :)
  Saessa: One begins to wonder if they'll ever get the servers up again.
  Alant: Downtime is prolonged anew.
  Saessa: 5pm Eastern, that's like 10pm GMT.
  Alant: See the Twitter messages in the side panel: trouble still isn't over. Let's hope they give something in return for the downtime (5 free lootbox keys for example).
  Davethegit: stalled at 'installing pre-reqs' , wasn't there major downtime for an update or patch the other day?
  Saessa: Can't seem to log in to anything LotRO related, game or websites.
  Alant: Many thanks Zooze, for informing all members Ringo passed away. The kin will be different without him.
  Saessa: RIP Ringo, you will be greatly missed. :(
  Alant: Good to see you back in game, Dave.
  Davethegit: hi Saessa, just got back to the problem last night,after reinstalling windows for a different issue i needed directx11, i think i'm back in business :)
  Alant: Happy birthday Tavia
  headmage: <latest beacon issue :) the beacon contains the current store code, it is also set as MOTD in game :)

Hey guys.

i made a steam group for lotro, it was intended to be called Riders on the storm, but i couldnt use that name :( so i just went wtih lotro-gilrain

anyway, basically its for anyone who uses steam so you can be contacted if your not logged into the game and are wanted etc.

it is what the kin website should be used for, but because you can access steam in-game in lotro it may be a bit more convinient for people in stead of alt-tabbing :)

this is optional if you want to join it, i just thought id give it a go :D

We are going to start to do some kin Draigoch runs, for us to be successful here we need people to get involved. It doesn't matter if you've done it before or not, we have experienced people who can help you through it. We may fail a numbter of times to do it but it will be good practice.

PLEASE DO PRE-QUESTS's and also if you get a chance read this just to have an overview of whats happening. Don't worry to much I will talk people through it.

YOU NEED TO HAVE VENTRILLO INSTALLED in order to hear what is being said. Voice is critical to this RAID but it gives the best rewards also.


Kindest regards

I hope everyone is well, I wanted to update both officers and kinnies on permissions within the kinship, in addition some of the rules defined in here also for promoting people:


Officer = Promote and demote people up to kinsman/kinswoman level. Can perform maintenance on the kin house, pay upkeep etc. Can Add remove items from kin chests. Can decorate the kin house. Can change the MOTD. Can expel people from the kin. Can talk on officer and kin chats.

Kinsman/Kinswoman = Can Add remove items from kin chests. Can talk on kin chat.

Recruit = Can talk on kin chat.

Promotions and Demotions

Recruit rank is for new members within the kin, or for members that have broken house rules around kin chests and are temporarily demoted to recruit level.

Kinsman and Kinswoman Rank. Promotion and demotions to kinsman and kinswoman is by descretion of a kin officer. Any level player can be at this rank within the kin. This is considered the normal for most players.

Officers are for those that wish to spend time helping the kin progress, by recruiting new peopls, by helping with quests and crafting, by running events, in general we look for mature people with characters over lvl 65 that have a reasonably good understanding of the game. It's important that every kin member respects each other, and this is a must in order to be an officer.

Successor to the kin is defined by the kin leader himself. A successor needs to be a well rounded individual with a mature and morale sense of 'doing the right thing' for the kin and its kin members, as well as having a very good understanding of the game. Current Successor is Ammania.

Hope this helps all, kindest regards
