Directorate is a six year old Rank 10 kinship, formerly from Imladris, now on the Crickhollow server. We have 184 toons on our roster, 50 at cap 105 level, with an equal balance of male and female kin members. Many of us are older players but our defining characteristic is that we are friendly, courteous, and respectful to all within the kin, and as we travel throughout Middle-earth. We maintain a kin forum with the latest news regarding Lotro, an extensive library and discussion forum, and a gallery section to post our screenshots. Most of us work during the day but at night and on weekends we are in Middle-earth. We have an active day presence as well. Newcomers to Lotro are welcome; we will assist you while you level. Most of us are from the United States, however, we have members in Canada, England, Holland, Israel and Mexico. We seek focused individuals who are committed to the game. We run group end game content whenever possible and use Team Speak voice communication. To join Directorate ~ you must send in game mail to Paladiran.

Players will accrue Allegiance Points which advance your character along a given Allegiance. These points can be earned through acquiring items found in Mordor, completing repeatable quests, and more.
Light of Eärendil/Shadow
Areas of Shadow can be found in varying intensity throughout Mordor. These areas weaken visitors, but the Light of Eärendil can counteract this darkness. Your character will see a Shadow and Light Rating, which will help you understand the threat posed by the Shadow. Items that grant Light of Eärendil can be found in Mordor.
