How long have you been playing Lord of the Rings: Online?
I have had the account since the game went live but I have only recently played longer than a week.
Are you a F2P-player or a VIP-player? (optional)
Have you been roleplaying for a long time or is this a whole new experience for you?
Started playing D&D in 1978, and still do to this day.
Please post the link to your character's Laurelin Archives profile (if applicable)
How would you describe your knowledge about Lord of the Rings and Dwarrow in specific?
Casual fan, but definitely a dwarf-lover. We do an RPG event here called Dwarf-a-palooza, where we play just dwarves. I have a dwarrow army for the Games Workshop The Hobbit Battle Strategy Game, and also for Warhammer/Age of Sigmar. My lore knowledge will be limited, but my respect for Durin's Folk is strong.
How did you get in contact with our Kinship?
In-game recruitment with Kandral.
Do you know any of the Durin's Folk members or have you been in contact with anyone?
In-game recruitment from Kandral.
Why do you wish to join a dwarf-only kinship, as opposed to a mix or other race-oriented kinship?
Because, at the core of my being, I am carved from stone. I would rather be with like-minded individuals that appreciate and respect the beard.
What are you looking for in a kinship and what are your expectations of Durin's Folk?
I'm looking for that team home. Folk who can help me learn the game, and who give me an opportunity to assist others as well.
What kind of activity level are you likely going to have within Durin's Folk?
I would like to take part of as much as possible, I want to learn as much as possible about Dwarrow and their Lore and Culture
Which of Durin's Folks Pillars would you like to join? (select one of the Pillars)
I would like to join the Pillar of Force
And finally: tell us a good joke
There's three construction workers; one of Durin's kin, a hobbit, and a blonde elf. The three are high up, building a wizard's tower, when the lunch-horn is sounded. The three sit on the edge, feet dangling and open their lunch boxes. The dwarrow says, "Red meat again? I get red meat every lunch! If I get it again I am jumping off this tower to my death!" The hobbit says, "Cold chicken again? I get cold chicken every day! If I get cold chicken again tomorrow I am jumping off!" The blonde elf opens his lunch and says, "Lembas bread again!! If I get lembas again tomorrow I am jumping off!" Next day, same event. The dwarf opens up his lunch, yells, "Red meat!!" and leaps to his death! The hobbit opens his up and yells, "Cold chicken!" and leaps to his death. The blonde elf opens his lunch and yells, "Lembas bread!" and jumps to his death. During the funeral the wives are consoling each other. The properly-bearded dwarrow lass cries, "Oh - if only I'd known he was tired of red meat, I would have fixed something different!" The hobbit lass cried, "Oh, if only I'd known he was tired of cold chicken I would have fixed something different (and ate the chicken myself, of course)." The blonde elf's suitably elven wife states, "Hey, don't look at me - he fixes his own lunch."
