Hi team,

I want to start by saying congrats to the team for a great win in Shadow T2 what a fantastic way to move into the Anniversary week!

We have a great series of events this week with some really nice prizes. The posts that follow in this thread will be some further explanations of what will take place in those events by the event leaders.

The Inks were founded 5 years ago next Wednesday by Panathar, Hoolegan, and myself. All of us remain active and our very first recruit (Valeric) is still in kin and actively playing in Rohan. We also have several active players from 2008 and 2009 that still run events with us! In addition, we have brought in several former members of Cliff Divers who were an early part of this Kin's heritage. Our kin video still brings to life the first 3 years of this kin (and yes, we are working on others).

This team has accomplished many things together not just in game, but in real life as we've strengthened our bonds. We've not just taken on and down some of the toughest content in this game, but we have been recognized in the Moors, in the community forums, and even globally by Turbine a few times. Outside of the game, we have prayed together, laughed together, lost jobs, recovered jobs, lost loved ones, gained new loved ones, and stood the test of many trials that any collection of people would confront while forming and storming any team/club/group/etc.

So many of you have contributed and given back to this team over the years, and the team as a whole recognizes that and appreciates it. We as a kin could not have made it without each of your all's participation, contributions, and consistent culture. I am proud of who we are, who we have maintained to be, what we have done and shared together as well as what is still set before us for some many great years to come.

Enjoy this week - and thank you for being a part of the team!

Tollers - Jacob

Event Logistics:

  • Tuesday's event will be a Raid in BG. We will use formation rules, but we will run as many as needed to get folks in.
Significance:
  • The Inks beat this raid in whole the last night prior to Radiance going away. It was a long battle in which many kinships left the game. It was a difficult time of building the kin, teaching many of our team key skills as well as developing our raiding culture. It was probably one of our most significant moments in our early years when the LT fell to our killing blow. We love to go back here for the first time in maybe 2 years to feel the ride again up that long long tower run.
Rewards:
  • We will be awarding KP for the event despite loot not being taken. In addition, we will have special KP rewards for certain acts/feats to be revealed tomorrow night.

Logistics:
  • Assuming we have 16 sign-ups (we'll adjust t o what we have), we'll use a style like the above with a double elimination. We will bracket range and melee Top and  Bottom as best as we can. Losers will proceed to Cons Bracket below to battle for 3rd. The Spar will be best of 3 per round with no retraiting in that round (you can retrait per player). No consumables allowed. Only traits/skills/gear. Anything goes as long as you stay in the blood pit (in Dunland). YOU MUST SIGN UP AHEAD OF TIME TO BE ELIGIBLE.
Significance:
  • It's fun, and we learn a lot. We've had one every year since our first event.
Rewards:
  • We will have rewards for 1st and 2nd and 3rd. All participants will earn KP. Rewards for winners will include special prizes from Gili, Gold, and KP.

The Inklings Trivia spans from your knowledge about any of the written work of Tolkien and often to include facts about The Inklings of Oxford. The trivia will run the entire week starting on Tuesday. There will be a daily list of trivia and a set amount of time to respond (usually most of the day - it will be announced). There will be a new trivia list daily.

The winner will get the Medal as well as a prize good from Gili and team. 

The change this year is the trivia will ONLY be on Twitter. Follow us on Twitter, respond with your answers there and you will win.

If there is a tie, then we will put all correct entries in a lottery to pull from.

Leaders:

  • Mori and Aurandas
Logistics:
  • Sign up in advance. Mori and Aurandas will split you into teams of 2. There will be a set amount of time. Within that amount of time, the team that generates the most Renown will be the winning team. Make sure to use a plugin or record your base Renown with Mori or Aurandas as a team before you start.
Significance:
  • The Inks love doing things together, and the Moors is another place where we are together in coordination and fun. The Inks were originally not a large presence in the Ettenmoors. When Mori, Pan, Gili, Loc, and Eileensdream began to increase in Rank, the board became more and more trickled with kin members' names. Soon it became a Friday night regular event.
Rewards:
  • There will be Prizes from Gili, Tokens of Valour, and KP
