re: HotR Gazette for Week of 6/25

Dear Kinship Members,

Hope you have been having a great Summer so far, full of fun in your daily life as well as fun here in LotRO. HotR is steadily growing in many areas such as crafting, consistent active members, kinships that are becoming our allies, better organized fellowships, instances, raids and skirmishes, and more fun then a barrel full of hobbits. It is because of your efforts, and the efforts of the many leaders, besides myself, that have come forward to help all the members, no matter what level they are, to grow and enhance their fun in LotRO. Thank you all very much for helping to make this kinship one of the best in Gladden and all of LotRO.

Now for the news:

1) A week long Festival and inter-kinship tournament is being planned and we are applying to Turbine for sponsorship with give-away TP's, LotRO store coupons, and much much more. A planning committee is being formed with our Kinship Alliance.
Anyone wanting to help with this is more then welcome to. Mail or IM Draconea, Iokie, Nourtheryn, or Galalendon for more info.

2) We now have a full 21 level 75 members, including Finalting, Torus, and Smooty. Congratulations to all the new elites for all their skill, patience, cunning, and perseverance. They are all most likely willing to help all levels of members, and all of them are excepting Squires & Apprentices.

Henceforth, all 75 Level members of HotR shall be known as the Knights of HotR - protectors of the Rings of Power, and destroyers of Evil.

3) Lord Galalendon is our new and quite capable Secretary of State, Minister of the HotR Embassy located in Bree, and runs our Foreign Affairs Offices there. We now recognize 5 Kinships as our Allies, and they each require an Ambassador, Emissary, and Messengers to stay in touch with them and them with us.

Lord Galalendon cannot do it alone for more kinships are wanting to join our alliance each week. They will have blogging rights on our website and titles to go with their leadership positions. Duties are very minimal. Anyone who wants to be an ambassador, emissary or messenger, please contact Galalendon by Mail or IM when he's in-world.

4) Lady Kiassara is our new Roleplay Leader - Lady of HotR She is a seasoned roleplayer with many years as an elf, fairy, unseelie, princess, queen, and many other roles. Roleplay has been requested by many of you, and it is now beginning.
