So, uh.. Introduction, huh?

Hello!

I am your newest recruit!

Let's start with the.. name! It's Mikko, although online I prefer to use my nickname "Provideniya" [Provi-den-ja (or -ya; as in "Yak")] - or pretty much anything derived from it, be it "Prov", "Provi", "Provid", character names etc.

Born in 1990 in Southern Finland to a small village as a boy, there has never been too much to do around so I grew up to become a PC Gamer, living World Atlas, history enthusiast (mainly WW2 and lately early medieval) and literature sponge.
Lately, I've been becoming more and more addicted to Tabletop RPGs. Savage Worlds is my go-to system, but I'd be interested to try out others too.

Currently I work mainly in night shifts, and I am happy in doing so.

In literature, I like pretty much anything that is between hard covers; but most of all I'm into Fantasy, SciFi and any Historic subgenres, fact or fiction. LOTR "Main" books, ASOIAF, Wheel of Time, His Dark Materials-trilogy.. All of those has to be re-read at least once a year!

Games -wise; it is once again pretty much round-robin with "FPS" games, Paradox Grand Strategies, RPGs, some randoms and of course, LOTRO - the only MMO that has been able to keep me interested longer than a month. If there is a "genre" that I just can't stand, it is the games like League of Legends, DOTA etc.

But that is enough of me IRL; let's talk about how I'm in-game.

Alt-aholic. That pretty much sums it.
I've been playing LOTRO on-and-off for years. I guess I started in second year of original Shadows of Angmar.

I've been pretty much Solo all time until ~Moria/Mirkwood, that's when I joined my first Kinship and did a few runs in that Mirkwoods tower instance and couple of basic skirms but that was then. As people out-leveled me and focused on late game, I took my time and enjoyed the game. I fell back to my Solo habits. And as time passed, the Kin around me withered and became pretty much a graveyard, with a few exceptions during new Expansions.

And that is the exact reason I started to feel like I'd need a new home. And I am pretty sure I have found it in here. The few moments I've been writing this and having glances at in-game chat, I feel.. good.

What about my characters? There are 9 of them, 10 with U15.

My main and the one closest to my heart is Proviaroc the Hobbit Hunter.

And what of my alts? Well.. There is several -hards', some Prov-'s and couple of more "generic" names.
No doubt I'll add them all to the site and work some magic to be able to show them below..

Crafting.. Proviaroc's a Woodworker. Working my way towards the latest top mastery. On alts I have Weaponsmith, Armorsmith, Jeweller, Cook and everything else is "explorers". I see no point in leveling several main crafters.

But besides the crafters of a mid-level range, I hope that I can become more active in Skirms, Instances and maybe, someday, even in PVP. Once upon a time I used to play Creeps as a Warg (whatever those are called). It was pretty fun. But I guess the Ettenmoors are not the same place it used to be.

About the instances and stuff, I know nothing really. But as long as you point me an enemy to shoot and shout when it's time to book it, I think I'll be fine on my Hunter. Others, well.. I may need some reminders and time to warm up.

In both short and long term, I feel like working towards becoming part of the Kinship and to, what's the word.. to have a view at the side of LOTRO that I've been missing on - the real group content. Instances, BBs and so on.

I guess that's pretty good goal to look towards.

Anyway, I will look toward to seeing you all!
I just realized I had spend a way too long to write this post and am now almost late from work!

-Proviaroc Sudensurma,
a Hobbit and a Hunter.

Hey Prov

What an awesome introduction - thanks so much for taking the time to tell us about you. I'm sure you will get to know all of us in time.

If there's anything you need please just shout - we are always happy to help each other whether it be advice, materials, jewellery or just conversation.

We have a Teamspeak 3 server which we use when running raids etc and sometimes just to chat - all the details are here: http://www.wisdomofthevalar.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=5282

Thanks again and see you in game soon.

Jar

p.s. I'm also a WW2 enthusiast :-)
p.p.s. you have your character in your signature set to 'No' where it asks you if he is in the kin, so you need to update that.

Thank you, everyone! Your welcomes are well received!

Now is the time to add missing characters, setting up stuff and such..
Who knows what I managed to do last night while browsing around the site on Mobile device - which actually works pretty well. Pretty surprising actually. :D
