First of all, hello everyone, hopefully some of you still read this forum; I at least know that Thrail logs on every now and then and updates our kin message.
A funny thing happened today though, I flicked to my kin tab in the social panel and there was a new button available to me.
It was called "Usurp".
I clicked it.
I'm now the SC-LoTRO kin leader, as seen in the below screenshots.
Now, I'm pretty sure this particular kin feature has been impletmented for a reason, and I feel completely entitled to use this to justify that I clicked it partly out of curiosity but mostly because I'm sick of being the only person online on a regular basis. I've seen several people simply log on then leave the kin over the past few weeks. I know you're all off playing AoC or doing the Warhammer beta but I don't want to have to wait around for you guys to come back before I can raid with a regular group of people again. "But why not just find a new kin, Rhian?" I hear you asking, well I love this one so much I couldn't bare to leave and see it die an unnoticed death.
I now have a lifetime subscription, and so I intend to put this to good use. Rather than wait for you guys to get back, I'm going to advertise on the Elendilmir forums and start rebuilding this kin. I have removed many toons that have not been online in over 250 days, and I feel this is reasonable.
One last thing I want to make clear, this is by no means a "mutany" or anything of the sort, if Invert and the other officers which to come back and start playing regularly again at any point I will gladly hand over the leadership. This is just more of a me wanting to revive this kin so that when Mines of Moria rolls around I won't be by myself...
P.S. Please don't get mad at me
