Welcome to Frodo's Friends!
LORD OF THE RINGS ONLINE
Frodo's Friends is a relaxed social kin on the Crickhollow server (formerly Windfola), open to all races and classes. We focus on helping each other have as much fun as possible! Our kin chat is moderated to provide a lighthearted experience suitable for all ages. To keep it light we discourage debate on religion, politics and controversial topics.

We focus on enjoying the game content and building our characters. This is a safe place to come to forget the trials of life and just have fun. Events are offered spontaneously when someone genuinely wants to. We prefer to be a medium sized kin with a strong core of dedicated members who love Tolkien’s LOTR.

Most of this website can be viewed as a guest. If you are already a member of our kin please click the APPLY link at upper right and set up your account to get the full benefits. Use your main character name as your username. Only one application is required - if you have more than one character, you can add the alts to your account after you are accepted.

Everyone, please join me in welcoming our new Successor - Brandimur (Branthor, Brandabear, Branalas,etc) !

Bran has been a helpful member of this kinship for 6 years. He plays often, has lots of game knowledge that he freely shares, and he has at least one toon in every class so he is a valuable resource for class tips.

I am grateful for all of his contributions to this kin and I consider myself lucky to be his friend.

Congratulations and thank you Brandimur !

Our Successor, Dilligence, has a vision for a kinship that has its own unique culture which is similar to ours in some ways and different in other ways. After in-depth discussion I have encouraged him to realize his dream by forming a new kinship which will be allied with ours – a sister-kin.

This gives you an opportunity to re-think what you really want and make the choice that is best for you. We will provide a clear description of the culture of each kin via game mail so that you can make an informed decision.

I encourage everyone to put aside ideas of loyalty to me or to Dill. I want you to be loyal to YOURSELVES and your own preferences. LOTRO is a game, meant to be fun. Go where your heart takes you.

And if you find that neither kin is really what you want, then go find another you like better. Ask questions about their culture before you join.

Dill will be accepting new members into his Righteous Kingdom kinship on Tuesday June 19.

Let us set a shining example of true friendship & cooperation in this transition.

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Dilligence as our kin Successor. Many of you already know that he is the original founder of this kin more than seven years ago. His passion for group experiences and his friendly, helpful attitude are great contributions that will benefit us all.

I want to thank Galanur for his excellent contributions as Successor this past year and a half. We have received many compliments on our kinhouse - Galanur spearheaded the decorations and organization, with the help of many of you. Thank you Galanur !

I look forward to sharing the leadership with Dilligence. Together we will continue to maintain a friendly, family-rated kinchat, and a helpful game experience. We also respect individual preferences in that some people prefer a more quiet, self-reliant play-style.

The most important thing is to have fun and play the way you like to play.

Congrats to Dill ! And heartfelt thanks to Galanur !

In Friendship,
Tessar
