Concerning Hobbits is a rank 10, hobbits-only kinship on the Landroval server. We are a friendly, low-pressure kinship comprised of players at all levels.
We are a rather silly bunch, truthfully.
"I am personally immensely amused by hobbits as such, and can contemplate them eating and making their rather fatuous remarks indefinitely" --J.R.R. Tolkien, From a letter to C. A. Furth of Allen and Unwin, 24th July 1938.
What kinds of things does Concerning Hobbits do?
We do all sorts of things! Our kinmates quest together, level together, and craft together. We also frequently participate in light-to-medium roleplay (RP), both initiated by our own kinship and initiated by others.
Our kinship has sponsored a number of unique and exciting events including:
- Regular kin parties in the Shire on Thursdays , 8:30 to 10:00 PM, featuring games, music, pies, light RP, prizes, and fireworks. Party games include the Bad Joke Contest, Riddle Game, Hide-a-Hobbit, and more.
- Weekly Raid Nights designed to be inclusive of all players, especially those who are new to raiding. These events are fun and friendly learning experiences. Slow and steady is the rule, with each of us learning from the others as we go along.
- And more!
Does Concerning Hobbits have a kinship house?
Yes! Our kinhouse is at 5 Harrow Road in the Stooping neighborhood, Shire homesteads. Just be careful of the kinhouse keg... it's dangerous.
Can I join Concerning Hobbits?
Are you a hobbit? Are you a nice person, who wants to make friends and explore Middle-Earth with a wonderful group of other hobbits? Then get in touch! This might be the kinship for you.
All kinmates (other than Officers) are given the rank Kinswoman/Kinsman. You will never be booted from CH due to inactivity. If you are inactive for more than 100 days, you will be demoted to Recruit. But as soon as you log back in, an Officer will bump you back up to Kinsman/Kinswoman.
What about my non-hobbit alts?
Concerning Hobbits is a hobbits-only kin, no exceptions. However, we've set up a special chat channel, so we can keep in touch with each other even when we are on other non-hobbit characters.
Are there rules?
They're really more like guidelines. Guidelines for Harmonious Hobbiting
A song by Anselerda Braveheart
In a corner of the Shire, a band of hobbits live,
under the watchful eye of Miss Rozalinde.
She runs it with fun and games!
