Dear All

Veteran players or those who are members of the WotV Facebook group may recently have heard that one of our former kinsmen, Phorlas (Ian), has sadly died.

Phorlas, along with his well-known alts Phortold and Phorsake, joined WotV in 2009. You can read his original intro here and see a bit of the man he was - his enthusiasm shines through: http://www.wisdomofthevalar.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=848

Phorlas was kind, patient and welcoming and the kin Warden Class Leader and Raid Team Leader whilst on the WotV Council. His contributions to the kin in those days of early growth cannot be underestimated, and his good reputation lives on in the shape of the kin today. His son Dominic was also a member of the kin, under the name of Asgal, and both were highly engaging, considerate and popular kinnies.

I hope you will join your fellow kinfolk in raising a jug of Thistleberry Brew or a glass of Brandy Wine to the memory of Ian, and in sending our best thoughts to Dominic at this difficult time.

Phorlas, thank you.

Rest in Peace Phorlas, Though I never met you, My thoughts and prayers go out to you.

(edit)

It's better to have lived and enjoyed yourself than to die and regret the decisions you made.

Phorlas (Ian) was one of the kindest, friendliest, helpful kinsman you would want to meet. When I first joined the kin in 2010 he and his son were the first 2 kinsmen I played alongside. I remember it well, it was a Carn Dum run. We spent the whole afternoon in there, deeding, collecting class items for fellow kinsman and just generally having fun :)

Even though he left the kin to raid more, he was always there to lend a helping hand if we needed it.

Thank you for the times we shared in middle earth, you are in my thoughts and you are truly missed.

Thank you all for your moving messages.

When I found out about Ian's passing on Saturday, it was as though I felt the world spin. Ian was a wonderful man - kind and generous, always happy to lend a hand or give some advice. It was a blow when he and Dom moved to set up Edges of Insanity, but it was right - he always deserved to be the leader of a raiding kin, and in EoI he built up a strong community that are feeling his loss.

We knew that he'd reduced his LOTRO time over the last few years for health reasons, but he never let on about his struggles, or the severity of his condition. The news was a shock, one I know that for those of us who knew him, it will take time to get over.

Even after he moved from WoTV, he always made the time to come to the memorial evenings we hold for Ana. I never thought we'd be in a position where the memorial needs to be held for him.

Ian, we love you and miss you. You'll be forever in our hearts.

My thoughts are with Dom and his family at this time - if you read this Dom, know you always have a place here, and that if there's anything we can do to help, we will.

To Ian =D>

Oh man where do I start.

I spent a lot of time with Ian in game, he was a good friend and a funny guy. I'm gonna miss you pal.
I spoke to him in-game a few months ago, I knew he had been battling health problems but he didn't let on how serious.
He did so much for the kin while he was here, he led alot of raids and we achieved many kin-firsts with him.

I will always remember his personal battle with Hwandrin (skumfil HM spider), it took him 30-40 tries to get his leggings:

Balrog fun:
viewtopic.php?f=45&t=1654

But this bought a tear to my eye, I just watched the video of our first all-kin kill of Thorog that Simon took and uploaded.
Ian lead it and thats his voice you hear mostly, you can also hear Anne-Marie's lovely Irish accent.
Rest in peace both of you.

Oh my goodness , im in shock . I hadn't looked at the forum for a while and wasn't ready for this news.
Like John , I regarded Ian as a good friend in game and missed him greatly when he left.
Ama and now Ian , such sad times.

Rest in peace Ian , you will be sorely missed by those who knew you.

Scotty

Hello,

Thanks Anjin for posting the vid, while I haven't met Phorlas in game he seems a very nice guy, and I wish I'd known him.
My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Rest in peace,

-Oder

It's very sad to hear about Ian's passing.
He was truly a wonderful person and was always charming & helpful.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Dom.

Farewell old friend,
Ofer
