Lord of the Rings Online
(Durins Folk Kinship)
Sons of Durin
Durins Folk is a Landroval kinship founded by Guardians - Master Dwarf Gruma and a Noldorin Elf Lanovar , during open beta April 22nd 2007 on Nimrodel as the Original "Sons of Durin" Kinship. Lead by our most charming Guardian Master Dwarf Logrjigi, as a primarily raiding Kinship the Sons of Durin was one of the largest community of players on Nimrodel who came together for one common goal, to have a good time exploring Middle-earth.
Most Dwarves mentioned in Tolkien's works are of Durins Folk, the house founded by Durin I of Khazad-dûm, Durin founded what became the greatest of the Dwarf cities: Khazad-dûm: the Dwarrowdelf, later called Moria. Durin's people were known as the Longbeards, Sons of Durin or more commonly as Durins Folk. In the early part of the Second Age many Noldorin Elves, lead by Celebrimbor journeyed East of the Ered Luin and established the realm of Eregion near the Misty Mountains. These Elves developed a rare friendship with the Dwarves of Khazad-dûm. Together they became loyal and good friends referred to as "Durins Folk" the Sons of Durin.
(Why the rename from the Sons of Durin to Durins Folk? When we were forced to move to a different server we chose Landroval, which unfortunatly already had a newer kinship with our name. For a group of our Standing and History as a Founding Kinship, rather then going with a -1 named Kinship, we decided on a rename. Another known name for the Sons of Durin is "Durin's Folk". Unfortunatly that name was also taken so we decided on "Durins Folk" so we can keep our History intact.)
