We maintain a kin forum, a kin house, and we have our own Team Speak 3, and Discord voice communication platforms. Many of us have capped toons in all classes. Our roster has 240 toons on it with an equal balance of male and female kin members, but our defining characteristic is that we are knowledgeable about the game and kind to all as we travel throughout middle-earth. Directorate is an end game kin but newcomers to Lotro are welcome. Most of us are from the United States however, we have members in Canada and Europe. Directorate has an ongoing relationship with an end game Raiding group. To join Directorate ~ you must send an in game tell to Paladiran.
