Player Spotlight

This week, a friend of a Crickhollow player sent this in about their great Kinship leader! "I would like to place a spot light on Azzel in Crickhollow.  Amazing Kin leader.  He is the kind of guy everyone likes.  He is always helpful and never condescending.  He helps all levels and skills of players.  He has an amazing knowledge of the game.  His in combat leadership ability is top notch.  He can figure out difficult situations on the fly.  What’s even more, he is a great person.  LOTRO and world would do well to have more of him.  He is the Kin Leader of Night Riders."

Congrats Azzel!
