Most of you know me as Hydrow, although I have transferred my Main character, Diacetylmorfiend, as well.
I love this kin, and with my long history of running kins, and being an officer in them (emphasis on recruitment), I recently became a recruiting officer.
I am there to help everyone, and answer any questions. however, as I am a solo player usually (not always by choice), I am not seeking power or a list of responsibilities as I am far too busy irl.
My goal and function primarily is to recruit quality players, and manage the in/out flow of players (hopefully not too much out!).
I do not think the plan is to openly recruit forever. While we will always be willing to accept a new member(when appropriate), I think once we grow enough we should stop before we get too large, and no one knows each other anymore and drama ensues. I believe there is a sweet spot for size where a kin functions and cooperates the best.
IRL I'm a 26 yo male, you'll see my wife (Eliya) playing as well just not nearly as often. I have 5 kids, 11, 10, 9, 5, and 1. I'm Eastern Standard TIme, server time, and I'm from Lehigh Valley, PA (U.S.A.).
I am a Team Administrator & Research Assistant for a company, which is family owned (my family), called Salt, IO (Data/Tech Company).
I also have an a full paid internship and am the first person to participate in a pilot program to take non-tech folks, and introduce them to the tech world. Mine is a programming/coding internship that includes attending an online coding academy.
Needless to say, I am busy, but I always try to find time for LotRO and my kin!
Hydrow brought me on-board about a week ago and I've been fairly quiet in chat but everyone has been helpful and pleasant!
I'm located in Sydney, Australia so my hours are probably different to most. I'm usually heading to bed when I start seeing everyone saying good morning :P
I played LotRO years ago, pre-F2P and I think prior to Mirkwood. I think I ended up running out of things to do except grinding for Deeds so stopped for a bit and ended up playing other MMOs. I read about the plans for Modor and realised I needed to return! So now I'm slowly catching up on everything I've missed and trying to remember the basic things.
Please forgive any questions that might seen weird coming from a character upwards of L65, hopefully I'll catch on quickly!
Nobody really knows me yet I lead you all so here's me...er, us!
Canadian born, emigrated to the U.K. 7 years ago along with my husband who plays Rastagil, Gilgalin, Sundin, Isnobody, Isgout, Davhen, – we have no kids, just a cat named Domino – Domi for short. I volunteer my time twice weekly to one of our local charity shops, gaining XP so that with any luck, I can get a paying job one day.
We began playing Everquest together (Ayevee elf was born here), graduated to EQ2, then WoW for a few months. Hubby and our friend applied for and were waiting for emails to tell them if they had gotten into the game testing, when well...it seems I got the ALPHA testers job, while he and our friend got beta testing! Between us, he helped me a lot when it came to reporting things that were out of whack, back when this game began.
We have lifetime VIP accounts so as long as the game is around it looks like we will be too 😀
