Hobnanigans is back, now through May 8th. It's a good way to earn gold if you're up for the grind.

I've added an event on Saturdays to the calendar which I'm calling "Raid Support". The idea is that you pick the raid you'd like help with and I'll join you with whichever toon of mine you desire. Of course, that doesn't mean I'm unavailable at other times, just that I'll be setting that time aside on a first-come-first-serve basis.

I've also added a section to link useful resources for LOTRO players in an attempt to make it easier for Kinnies to find information they need. I plan on adding a section with guides or walkthroughs for each instance where one is available, however it is currently a work in progress. If you have any good resources you'd like to suggest adding, or know of any good instance guides, then please send me a message in game or through the website.

LOTRO Beacon Issue #10 is out. The weekly comment to respond to for your chance to win 500 LOTRO points is, "It's a little-known fact that Gandalf's hat can also ______."

Note: anyone who posts "It's a little-known fact that Gandalf's hat can also be used to sort students into houses" will be immediately kicked out of the kinship. ;)

Theomur has posted a second lifehacks for LOTRO. The first one was okay IMHO, but the second is very good.
