English Kinships

  • Aiya Earendil - Aiya Earendil is a lore based, heavy RP kinship specialized in Elvish RP. Our goal is for members to have a true immersive experience of Middle Earth, based upon the books of J.R.R. Tolkien. This goal shall be achieved by RP events, gatherings, questing, etc. Our only mandatory rule is that members stay true to the lore of Tolkien's world, this is to do it justice and avoid doing it harm. All RP within these large bounds is very much welcome.
  • A Long-Expected Party - A Long-Expected Party is a casual, light RP kinship in Landroval. We have somewhat casual players and enjoy fellowing for quests/skirmishes and helping each other with crafting. We are not a "raiding kinship". "The Party House" is located at 7 Fairwood Lane Tund Ondren, Falathlorn Homesteads.
  • The Alliance - The Alliance is a co-operative kinship, on the Landroval Server consisting of all the races of Middle-earth, with members living throughout the world who are looking to enhance their game play with a socially helpful experience. Our adult membership is very diverse, with game founders who are always willing to share experience and knowledge with newer players. We are an extremely laid-back kin that believes in real life always coming first, and many of our raids and social events are organic in their creation. Simply put: if you're looking for a heavy role-playing, power leveling, intense raiding or grinding kin, we are not for you. To become a member of the Alliance and battle the evils of Middle-earth, please contact an officer in-game or sign up on our website.
  • Armed and Dangerous - Armed and Dangerous is a friendly do as you please kin. RP is not common among current members, but it is certainly not frowned upon. You'll find many members willing to aid you in acquiring mats or items, completing quests, raids or instances, and just helping to answer questions among other things. We are currently seeking to recruit active members, and only ask that you remain friendly and respectful. Seek us out, and good luck in LoTRO!
  • Away Shall Fade - Inspired from Pippin's song in The Return of the King, Away Shall Fade is a relaxed kinship focused on helping make the Lord of the Rings experience enjoyable for all. Always recruiting all levels/races/classes. Come join us in helping others quest, do PvP, and raids. Contact Trindal or Rainbowdoddle if interested, or check out our kin website.
  • Axes and Ales - Axes and Ales is a Dwarf only kinship ((on the Landroval server)). Its focus is fun and fighting on all levels within Middle-Earth. The members within are not those who are petty or sympathize with the likes of the Dourhands. Although kin membership is restricted to Dwarves, the members of Axes and Ales often join in with others of other races as well on occasions when either axes or ales are an understood requirement.
  • Band of Hope - Band of Hope is a mature, family-friendly Christian guild. We have a strong player-base of active and experienced guild members. We encourage role-playing, but by no means do we require it to participate in our activities. Like other successful guilds on Landroval we do many things well, including raiding, questing together, and PvMP. Fare thee well friends and Christ be with you.
  • Blades of Anárion - We are a mature and casual kinship with a very simple and precise goal. Our mission is to provide a kinship for friendly, mature and like-minded individuals who enjoy the classical fantasy/Lord of the Rings culture. We inherit a light-RP attitude to keep ourselves indulged within the context of lore, at the same time share experiences, stories and friendships outside of the realm. Music, life, folk-lore, battle, camaraderie, brotherhood, are characteristics we all enjoy. If you enjoy these as well, consider fighting alongside our ranks in the Blades of Anárion.
  • Blessed - Blessed of Landroval, is a kinship geared towards those who looking to kick back and play casual with an atmosphere of close-knit friends. We are a small, yet personable kinship for those seeking brotherhood and adventure.
  • Broken Shadows - Broken Shadows Family run since 2008, we are a casual Lord of the Rings Online Kinship. With a wide variety of players in our membership, we all have at least one thing in common. Above everything else game related, we simply want to have fun playing the game with other players. Have a look around, and if you have any questions, please feel feel to e-mail us, or send a /tell in-game to any of our officers.
  • Brotherhood of Southern Knights - An ancient society based on comradery-in-arms and friendship, formed in the port city of Pelargir, and extended to the elves of Edhellond, to dwarf strongholds in the White Mountains, and even to hobbits of the Southfarthing who hocked their prized leaf beyond the Bounds. We are a rank ten friendly, casual non-RP kinship based on helping one another with quests, crafting, deeds and other aspects of daily life in LOTRO.
  • Caveat Angmarim - We are fun, mature, dedicated and intelligent people to add to our Kinship. We have a wide variety of time zones, levels, classes and professions. It seems that we do not role playing too much, but if you did it wouldn't be frowned upon. Mostly we are in this Kinship for the community that comes along with it through questing, crafting for each other, trading with each other or just chatting amongst ourselves. If our interests are similar to yours please seek us out. Take care.
  • The Common Folk - The Common Folk - Not every man of the world travels the lands, not every woman takes up with kith and kin to wage battle with the forces that lurk beyond their front stoop. The Common Folk is a Lord of the Rings Online kinship on the Landroval server. Our pure role-play expression is simply one of the common folk of the land, whether Man or Dwarf or Hobbit or Elf. We are farmers and tailors and very great cooks, and we are woodsmen and we even tinker with our anvils. Our hearts do not hanker for adventure beyond a good day's work for a good day's wage - perhaps a pint of ale after! We don't expect a player to consider this their primary kinship. The Common Folk is a way to unwind and just give a little more life to the wonderful lands of Middle-earth. Pop-in when you can, drink some ale and farm with us on good sunny days. The Common Folk's founder is Rerilac Bumbleroot, a Hobbit. He is the nephew of Weigela Bumbleroot (formerly a Greenhand). To learn more about The Common Folk, read the wiki and also contact Rerilac/Weigela or Airgoidhwen in-game.
  • The Council of the Secret Fire - The Creation of Eru Iluvatar is under threat from an Enemy the likes of which have not been seen in nearly an age. Now is the time for true Heroes to come to the aid of Middle Earth and provide the ultimate last defense! This is a social kinship open to all races, classes and gameplay styles. It's meant first and foremost for the enhancement of good clean fun of its members. The attitude is one of freedom, achievement, and never backing down. We're involved in both RP and PvP but neither will be required.
  • Dancers in the Meadow - Small kinship transferred from Windfola server. Members are avid Tolkien fans and lore enthusiasts and the kin is focused on exploration, lore, questing, and secondarily on professions. New members are always welcome, but we ask that players attempt to adhere to lore-accurate naming policies.
  • Dark Warriors of Valor - Dark Warriors of Valor (DwV) is a guild on Landroval in Lord of the Rings Online. Our goal is to become one of the best known and most well respected high end guilds on this server. We seek those who wish to experience the higher end content of this game, and carry themselves with integrity through it all. Most of our founding members have been together for over 3 years in other games. Though our goal is indeed to raid and conquer much of the higher end content in this game, our biggest pride will be in who we are as a guild. Skill, knowledge of one’s class, and other such aspects are an important part of being in this guild, more important is character of the player. We want every member of the guild to have fun and enjoy themselves, with this we also expect our members to not only work together well in groups or raids, but also in just every day play time. The biggest help and support we can gain will be from each other. Helping to further each and every member individually helps us as a whole and makes each and every person in Dark Warriors of Valor (DwV) feel that they are a part of us.
  • Deathgods - Hello we are a nice kinship, who are very supportive of each other, we are not an RP kin but we aren't completely against/opposed to it(also some of our members like to RP a lot). Our leader is Thorvail a dwarf guardian, he is very dedicated to helping the kin and its members like many of us. Second in command are Banesblood and Tarlasion, we have about 100 members but most of them are alts of our main members. Our goal is to be what a kin is supposed to be aiming at helping each other with whatever they need be it crafting, low level questing, high level questing, end game things, raids. our leader Thor has also started to do classes in which groups of our kin form and help each other with questing, explaining how things work, useful techniques and such.
  • Disciples of Tulkas - The blood-line grows thin. New recruits are needed in order to pass down the traditions and image of Tulkas, the champion of champions and mightiest of the Valar. The Disciples of Tulkas is a kinship based in Landroval that is composed of players of all classes, races, and levels. We are a social kinship that does everything from running instances at all levels, questing together, crafting for and with each other, social events, and role-playing events. Our kinship's background is that of an order dedicated to Tulkas, and it is around that concept that our rp is built; however, we are a no-med rp kin, and so no role-playing is required to join.
  • Discordians - Be ye not lost among precepts of Order! Hail Eris, instead! Join the Discordians and help spread the philosophy of Discordianism across Middle-Earth.

Those not in EETC, please feel free to ask for help to our public forum. Those interested in joining us please visit the EETC recruiting forum.
  • Edge - Established on the Landroval server, our motto is "real life comes first" and we stand very strongly by that. We know (or at least hope) there is a life outside the game so nothing is ever considered mandatory. Our play style is casual, not-too-light RP. While we like end-game content (our 50s raid at least half the week) we believe that the journey there is just as fun! Edge has ALL the amenities of an established kinship that's been around since beta, including house, mail, auctions, active high-level players, GMs, camaraderie, and pipeweed and ale in abundance! We are currently on the lookout for mature (18+) active members interested in enjoying the game at their own pace, while being a part of a community that helps each other out.

  • The Last - The Last is a semi-casual guild, well, I honestly don't know what to call us. We're a gaming community of mature-minded folks that have formed a guild together to enjoy each other's company, share gaming experiences and have a less-hectic and politic-free venture in the tumultuous waters of guilds in MMO's and the like. We were originally established by four friends who were literally looking to start "the last guild we want to be in." Hence, instead of Rage for Order (what can I say, Queensryche fan here) we named ourselves The Last. We have quite a lot of experience in guild management and we've been around the block in that capacity, so to speak. We're very humor minded and like to share a laugh, a tale and an adventure with friends. Currently, we have a Teamspeak server as well as our own website as linked above. Please come by and have a look. Thank you for your time :).
  • The Last Ringbearer is the creepside of Redemption.
  • The League of Arda - War is coming, war that has been long in the planning, and the League of Arda and it’s members stand ready to face the tide of evil.

We are a heavy Role-play Kinship who are always willing to help anyone.
  • Legends of Middle Earth - A light RP kinship that prides itself on a mature respect for each other. We love to just have fun in anyway we can. Very helpful members, although not a large kinship so far. We are based on the idea that the legendary names of middle earth are grouping together in an effort to stop the shadow of Angmar, and eventually Sauron, once and for all. We hope that with enough members we can finally overcome the witch-king's might and re-create the once great kingdom of Arnor. I, Khelek Heru, am the leader. Selico is second in command, so if I am not on he will answer for me. We don't have a kinship house, yet, but feel free to use my personal house. Also we are a max lifespan kinship , so enjoy. Please Send me a message if you wish to consider joining up, all types welcome! Lastly I am working on a kinship homepage, so look forward to that in the future. May the light of the Valar carry you through the night!

While role-playing is not required, if you chose to do so you will find a very RP-friendly environment here.

They have continued to perform their duties, unknown to the majority of the masses, even to this day.

We added new games over time and have long been waiting this incarnation of Middle-earth Online, now Lord of the Rings Online. Some of us meet between games on AIM every Sunday at 5pm EST. We formed the LotRO branch of Valar at the start of Beta 1 and have run it ever since. On the web, we operate a Tolkien Site for articles, stories, poetry, humor, Tolkien's languages, artwork, and music. To attain Full Membership honor, a person must have read at least the Lord of the Rings and enjoy courteous speech and play. We each adopt a Tolkien character for the "primary name", as if it were the real name, behind the amazon, zerg, gnome, Tauren shaman, or hobbit of our choice. This gives everyone an instant relationship to everyone else for fun banter. We do not require role-play, but will generally do so at the drop of a hat. In LotRO, we like to explore all parts of our beloved world from Grand Master farming of taters to working through the epic storyline, counting floors of the Prancing Pony, raiding the Rift or sometimes going at each other in the Ettenmoors (in a friendly way). We help each other and those we meet to enjoy and develop this world and to be all we can be. Contact Fainan in-game (Varda on the Membership page) or any other officer to see if you can make it in or join our friend channel.
