    Rhannek - Join! LotRO [APPROVED]

    Post by Rhannek on Sun Dec 07, 2008 12:42 pm

    Q) What MMO do you currently have the most
    interest in playing? If Warhammer, which branch? (Destruction, Order
    or both.)

    A) Lord of the Rings Online!

    Q) Have you read our Code of Conduct and Forum Rules?
    A) Yes

    Q) Are you at least 18 years of age? [yes, no, actual age is optional]
    A)Yep, been 18 for a while

    Q) Have you read at least one of our example applications? [this is highly recommended]
    A) Yes

    Q)
    Do you have any relatives or friends currently in the guild, or were
    you recruited by someone? If so, who?

    A) Not that I know of, and no I was not recruited Smile

    Q) Name: [planned in game/forum name]
    A) In game I'll be either Amanek or Rhanak, in forums I'm Rhannek

    Q) Gender: [female, male]
    A) Male

    Q) What region do you live in? [City and State is fine.]
    A) Good ole' Branson Missouri

    Q) How did you hear about us: [friend, another member, forum, google, other mmo's, etc]
    A) I found you guys on the MMORPG.com guild listings, and after looking through a bit of the forums decided to apply

    Q) Are you currently in any other AoC, LOTRO, or Warhammer guilds?
    A) No I am not

    Q) Have you applied to any other guilds?
    A) Nope

    Q)
    We like to have fun, how's your sense of humor? Not so good? Good?
    You're a standup comedian you say?

    A) I'm fairly easy going, and as far as I can tell I have a good sense of humor

    Q)
    What other MMO's have you played if any: [Acquired a few skills from
    some other games eh? Tell us about them]

    A) I played DAoC as my first game, had many level 50s, from each realm. Moved on to Guild Wars where I had a ton of fun leveling to 20 twice and doing Hall of Heroes many times. Since then I've played just about every game including LotRO in the past, the other game I played the most being EQ2 which I thuroughly enjoyed. I've always been of the PvP type so I'm fairly good at that, but lately have been feeling a large pull towards the PvE aspects of games. Since my first game was DAoC, I pretty much started my MMO life always grouping, so grouping is my #1 thing in any MMO, if I'm not playing with someone, whats the point in playing an MMO?

    Q) What makes you want to join us over some of the other guilds? [let us know!]
    A) It seems to be a more mature guild, even then some of the other guilds I've joined for only 18+ or so members. This is a big draw to me because I've never really been a fan of someone playing music through Vent or spamming guild channels, maybe thats just me though Smile

    Q)
    Please tell a little about yourself, aside from gaming. Perhaps some
    hobbies, about your work, favorite story etc.

    A) I'm a senior in Highschool, but definitaly wish I was in college right now. I've got one class this semester and two classes next semster at a local college doing work in the beginnings of Computer Science. My life play is to become a programmer for just about anything, though that will shape itself more as I get through college. I currently work in the wonderful world of WalMart, in the electronics department of our new supercenter here in Branson. Otherwise I'm a pretty normal kid.

    Q) Do you have any questions for us?
    A) Not as of yet.

    Not a bad start on your app., could use a bit of spice however. I'm sure there will be some more questions from some of our members, so make sure you stick around and give feedback if the opportunity presents itself Thumbs Up

    While I love the fact that we have another applicant for LOTRO, I have to agree with Brakkish, this app needs a little more fleshing out.

    I am going to have to wait and see what develops.

    Tell us a silly/weird/embarrassing experience and how you dealt with it. We need something that speaks to the character of you are. (Odd characters are definitely welcome, just look around the site.)

    Looks like a good app. Just curious, since you said you played Lotro before, what brings you back to the game?

    Sorry guys, my internet has been out for the past 24 hours. Stupid Suddenlink never fixes anything. Anyway, As for what brought me back to LotRO, I had really enjoyed the way the game feels, no loading, huge zones, and the amazing immersion that the graphics and the geography help with.

    As for kinda who I am, I don't know, I guess I'm just not much of a talker you know? I've always been more on the shy side of things so stuff like this I like to try to keep short. Hmmm. A little more about myself. I love computers, my dream job will be programming, as I said before, but a smaller but quite fun hobby I enjoy is composing. I'm no master, not even intermediate, but I enjoy it immensly. I use FL Studio, not sure if anyone has that here. Another thing I love to do is build computers. I've only built 4, 2 of which were for friends.

    This school hear I actually bucked up and joined our Student Council. This has become to be the place where I love, and hate, purely because of how many times it puts me infront of people. For exmple, a couple of weeks ago I had to dance a "Pirate Dance", a song meant for 5 years olds, infront of somewhere around 300 students from other schools. Now some may say "C'mon Rhannek, thats easy peasy!", (though most kids I know wouldn't use that exact phrasage. (Seriously didn't think phrasage was a word, but it doesn't have and red wiggly lines, and are you actually allowed to put parenthesis inside parenthesis? Oh well, too late)). Anyway, it's all in all been a good experience for me.

    Sorry again, I'm just really not much of a writer/talker, never really been my "thing". But maybe that'll give you a little more insight into who I am Smile

    I've had to do a lot of silly things in front of a huge student body myself. Since I was in plays all through high school. PB&J Time

    Thanks for responding and expanding on your app a bit. My undergrad degree is in computer science as well, although these days any programming I do is pretty limited and in support of in-house projects only. Not to sound too much like a mom (although I do have a kid older than you, hehe) but the experience you gain from the Student Council will probably be invaluable. Public speaking skills will stand you in good stead no matter what your chosen profession.
    Thumbs Up from me.

    OK, looks good to me now.
    He is after all only 18 years old. He hasn't had much time for some really good life experience stories to tell YET. I am sure there will be some right around the corner though. I think most of my biggest experiences happened between 18 and 30. Now I am just a boring 45 that looks forward to vacations and retirement. 12 years to go and counting!!!

    I am going to go ahead and stamp this APPROVED.
    I will let Brak do the official stuff though.
    I just added both your toons to my friends list. 26 LM and a 20 Capt.
    I will try to get you an invite when you log in.

    Baradain, my list of Tales was already growing by the time I was 18, but then I had never been your "normal teenager", if such a thing exists.

    However, the lad did come forth with more info as requested, and if he wants to hang out with a bunch of Old Farts, and I wear the title proudly, then on his poor benighted head be it.

    Thumbs Up

    Welcome, lad.

    (Probably the "pirate dance" that ye were made to do was the old Hornpipe, and there is no shame in doing it, and really no wrong way to do it, if ye put ye heart into it. Arrgh!)
