Last week I was by the Hall of Fire questing on my little champ Nenneth when I decided to pop in and hassle a friend who was rping there momentarily. Little did I know I was going to end up staying and meeting some great folks. I’m so glad I did as rp is something I’ve been wanting to get into. I met the lovely members of Loth-i-Lonnath (Curugirion, Aearandir, Durthand) and had an absolutely lovely time with them. So much so that I stayed up with them and my friend until the server was shutting down. It was so refreshing to find such accepting, inclusive and friendly people and great rp…especially after the fail of an event I’d attended the previous night with mass amounts of OOC spam and just downright non-inclusive people who were too wrapped up in themselves.
Loth-i-Lonnath held an event last night as they were travelling from Imladris back to the Havens and invited others to come along. I of course jumped at the opportunity to meet up with them and even finally sat down and worked up a background for a character…something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while. Funnily enough I’ve done this with an alt nowhere near being my main..but it’s worked out really well.
All in all the journey was lovely, until the end when a few people decided to hijack the event and try to make the show about them. I found it in extreme poor taste and to be the weak spot of the group (some of the rp was just atrocious…I’m a noob and I can see that!). Hopefully next week will be a bit smoother in that regard.
But yay! I’m very glad to be getting into this and have found such great people. Screenies after the jump!
