About Directorate
Directorate is a seven year old Rank 10 kinship, formerly from Imladris, now on the Crickhollow server. We have about 25 active players. There are 219 toons on our roster, of which 130 are active, 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. Many 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. Directorate is an end game kin but 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, Israel and Europe. We seek focused individuals who are committed to the game. We use Team Speak 3 voice communication. Directorate has an ongoing relationship with players from other kins who join us on our team speak to run raid content.  We run Raids and other group content on Friday Nights at 8pm EST.  To join Directorate ~ you must send in game mail to Paladiran.

    • Sleds will now appear in the Thirteen Kings room and in Karazgar's room to allow players to quickly travel outside the Anvil should they become separated from their Fellowship, and the Fellowship completes the Hrímil encounter.
    • The Tier 2 Progress Quest now correctly states that it resets on Thursdays.
    • Isvítha (Tier 1) should now only summon Frost and Ice Drakes.
