Trumble / Dec 18, 2012
The Wardens of the White Tree is a social light-medium role play kinship for mature (of mind) players on the Laurelin RP server. We try to make the game a fun experience for everyone by being helpful, friendly and understanding. We encourage our members to play their own style. The Wardens of the White Tree is a kinship for people with obligations in real life. Most of our members have regular jobs, are married or are parents. While we enjoy our time in Middle Earth, real life events will always have precedence. We have a focus on mid-game content, though we also cater for players at the endgame who wish to stay in our cosy environment :D
We are rank 10, and last October had our 2nd Birthday!


We run regular events such as Deed runs, Instances, RP and other stuff! More information can be found on the events and guild news pages.

We have a kinship house at 9 Chestnut Street, Ridgeborough, Breeland Homesteads as well as outbuildings close by (3 Fountain Road, Ridgeborough)

Again - if you have any questions then drop one of our Provosts a message. (Kin Master: Relgrim Provosts: Trumble, Iorangil and Edras)


Thanks, Trumble.

- Read these rules. All of them. At least once.
- If anything is not covered by these rules, the guiding principle for interacting with people should be mature behaviour. Be polite, friendly and helpful.
- Be active. If you don‘t show-up for 50 days without giving a reason, you will be kicked from the kinship. Yes, we do that and over 8 weeks is very generous.
- Be active on the forum. To attain the status of Kinswoman/Kinsman, you must be registered on the forum.

The kinships's background emphasises the importance of civil virtues, and we expect our members to hold up to these standards. Be polite, helpful, and mediate when there are arguments. If you can do that without roleplaying - Congratulations.

- When dealing with kin members, assume the best, and be at your best behaviour. Nevertheless: Misunderstandings happen, people may have a bad day... deal with it like an adult.
- Unnecessary profanity, insults and any kind of racial or sexist slurs will not be tolerated.
- If you have a dispute with another guild member, try to deal with it privately. If you feel like you need help, ask a member of the kin or a provost you trust to mediate.
- As in real life: If you want to praise somebody, do it as publicly as possible, if you want to criticise, do it as privately as possible. Apologies should be as public as the preceding insults, and sincere apologies should be accepted.
- Please remember that as a member of the Wardens of the White Tree you represent your kinship. Be friendly and behave in a way that makes the game a better experience for everyone. If people behave like idiots, just leave. Don‘t engage in name-calling contests.
- Don't break any of Turbine's Rules

Events

- All times are server times. Always. Even when you're British.
- If you sign up for something, be prepared. That means repaired, restocked and ready.
- Before beginning the event, make sure you have ample time for possible delays. If you are not sure if you can stay for the whole run, offer your place to someone else or at least inform your group members of the fact.
- Don't whine. The gods hate whiners. If something doesn't go the way you'd like it to, make constructive suggestions. or a joke.

Graebor / Dec 05, 2011
Greetings Wardens. For the months of December and January there will be a Riddle Event. I will post the riddle and you will have to find the location to receive the next clue. There will be approximately 5 riddles until the grand prize is awarded, that's if someone gets it, otherwise it will be whoever has got the furthermost. The first riddle follows:


Once proud,Once strong,
Alone it stood. To North South East and West
No enemies could approach. Power far reaching in its day. Now old
And in decay. A circle of stone is its heart, a voice like wind that will make all fail
Come seek it out if you dare, better by light as only
knives you’ll find in the dark.

Green Dragon Friday
Every Friday in the Shire is Green Dragon Friday!



As they have since May 2008, hobbits still meet at the Green Dragon in Bywater every Friday night, from 20:00 UK time (currently 3PM /servertime) to whenever (usually near two hours after the start)! Bring a riddle, a song, a poem or a story if you like! Please note this is a hobbit preferred event! (though a few well mannered dwarves are welcome too!)

This is an invitation to all roleplaying hobbits of the Shire to attend our regular Green Dragon Fridays. This is a great place to come even if you're new to hobbit RP, as you can meet many of the local characters. Traveling dwarfs are welcome as well. Bring your beards, but most importantly, bring tales from beyond the Shire. Not too gruesome, though!

Graebor / Oct 28, 2011
Mae govannen and Hail Noble Kin

When looking back at the past few months, we have seen a noticeable increase in activity and this is thanks to the efforts of our new lord and master (well...our little dwarf leader that needs a box to stand on) So on that note, another formal welcome to the new members.

As this is a MMO most of us are looking for similar things, to varying degrees, so I would like to encourage members to raise their voices in matters such as activities and discussions!We would love your feedback and ideas and of course we would also love everyone to attend the events but as real life does tend to interfere it would be great if everyone was in communication as to be able to offer something for everyone.

Ok that even confused me...back to basics!

What are we looking for in the new regime?

1. Be friendly! This means...say hello and bye bye.
2. Be polite! This means...no derision (mocking) NO SWEARING please..or at least keep it as civil as possible. I understand there can be certain situations ;-) damn warg!
3. Be interactive! This means...when you are online please interact, join fellowships with kinnies before others and involve the friends you make.
4. Ask! This means...always ask, don't be shy or afraid!
5. Have fun! This means...its a game treat it as such by respecting others around you

OK so that's a bit of a charter for us to follow, next up.

Mail me if you want to add to it!

Next :-) on a personal note. I would love members to add photos in out gallery
and something new; if you would like to write a post describing yourself (or character) there is space for this in the forum under general.

Done! thanks for reading and see you in game!!

Lord of...well nothing apart form a house in Bree...
