All About the Gal

Post by Gal » Sun Sep 23, 2012 7:19 pm

Hello Rangers,

To the helpful officers, thank you for accepting my application to your kinship. To the lovely kinmates, thank you for the warm welcome I received in chat : )

I've entered two characters into the kin - a hunter (Galdhoran) and a loremaster (Silivrand) - which I'm currently leveling at the same time.

I love games of all sorts but Lotro was my first taste of mmo's. And it got me hooked. I started playing it in 2008 on Brandywine. Sadly, the kin I joined lost many members and eventually became dead and almost completely inactive. I left it and the server to join Snowbourn (after a long break) as the time zones are more compatible.

I'm a bit of a perpetual noob. It takes me several tries and many mistakes before I learn something new, which is why I hesitate to join pug groups. I also suffer from a chronic case of InternetConnectionSuck - even more reason to shy away from fellowships, especially leading them. But I still love a challenge - as long as it does not become a frustrating, stressful annoyance.

Above all I want to have fun. That's why the social aspect of the game (being in a kin, having friendly folks to chat with) is a big part of what makes mmo's fun for me.

A little about the gal behind the Gal:

I'm 34, from the Middle East, and can't seem to go a day without my laptop and internet connection. It truly is a window to the world. Unfortunately, I seem to spend a lot of time using that window to play games..

I run a small afterschool kids' program in my family's house. I took a break from this recently and have since returned to Lotro in my free time. I'm starting to miss the kids though..

I've been a fan of scifi and fantasy since I was a kid. I read The Hobbit when I was 9 and The Lord of the Rings trilogy when I was in high school.

I'm addicted to Youtube (someday I'll end up overdosing on those blasted cat videos) and even more so to Facebook.

I love to draw. It's very therapeutic but it's been a long time since I've indulged in that hobby.

I'm generally quiet, friendly and slightly odd, but mostly awkward and introspective. My dorky sense of humor may strike out of the blue at times.

I have a terrible memory and a highly selective one - I tend to remember a lot of useless information.

I'm a Capricorn and I love cookies (any donations can be made to my inbox - thank you).

I'm looking forward to fellowing with my kinmates and having a good time with all of you : )

Happy hunting !

Welcome =)

Love the selective memory part, it´s just like mine =D

Hope you will start to like this kin as much as I already do.

*cheers for fun and dorky times together*

Welcome!

And grim, i know for certain we have (or at least had) members from Turkey which is considered middle east, and possibly a few other places in the region too :)

Thank you all for the welcome ^_^

There are a lot of gamers in the region - mainly teens and kids and mostly console and handheld games. I'm not sure how popular online games are here. Incidentally, it was a Turkish acquaintance of mine who introduced me to Lotro.
