Kin Hall

Directorate is a rank 10 kinship on Crickhollow that has been playing LOTRO since 2011! Many kin members have capped characters, and the kinship is considered an "end game" kin, but newcomers are also welcome. Directorate has a forum, kin house, and teamspeak server! To learn more, send an in-game tell to Paladiran or find their forums here.
