Second Breakfast Officers
Alts: Belladonea, Unnari, Jorunn and more
I like to help members when needed, help with events, and much more.
I like the kinship and all its members, for years we have been doing fun stuff together with events and weekly things, as well as helping each other out when needed. I like that many are knowledgeable about the game and can give advice to help new players, We share our adventures in game here and on discord, and I hope that continues.
My first character ever was Pontin, a Hobbit burglar, inspired by reading The Hobbit. Ever since I always liked the Community here on Crickhollow and Lotro in general. I help the Community in game, on the official lotro forums, Discord, and a few other places game related and have met many good friends here. Also, I am very much into the RP (role-playing) part of the game and making songs with the Music system!
Alts: Eorwerth, Evenbright, Gruffyd
I try to get directly in touch with new members, to be an active and friendly voice in kin-chat, to interact with non-kin players in a helpful and positive way (PR). Recently I've become very interested in our kin storage and have created a new character just for farming materials when we're low on stock, to help out. This is a big reason you might not have seen me recently- I've been playing him!
I love that SB has been around for so long that we have a very clear picture of who we are as a kin- yet we're also known for being friendly and welcoming. About me personally? I'm a hobbit, through and through- so much that out in the "real world" people who know nothing of my interest in Lotr/Lotro call me a hobbit with no prompting. It always makes me laugh, and I'm flattered.
Gryffs is a country fellow from Little Delving. He has little education and a great deal of trouble reading and writing (which you may know if you've ever gotten an in-character letter from him). He can't get names right and often fills them in with something he understands better (e.g. Lothlorien = Lord-n-ladyland, Minas Morgul = Mean-arse Morgul). He won't eat pork, and has a pet pig named Nort-Nort, who's usually trotting behind.
Music and Events Officer
Alts: Appletart, Villrvif, Tettra, Appleheart
I help SB plan, prepare, and produce many of our server-wide music events. I have been involved in some ways with pretty much every event we've hosted in the last few years, from Shirefest to Winterfest to Haunted Hill to Under a Fool Moon to weekly Bread & Jams. Above and beyond just our events, I consider it my pleasure to help everyone I can, with my number one goal being "Having Fun" no matter who you are, how you play this game, or what you like doing.
Luven was nearly lost. A lonely, hard-as-steel, cold-as-ice champion, who's only desire was to kill, swiftly and without emotion or mercy. Until she met hobbits. Now she is full of joy, sunshine, music, and dance (and sometimes Stars of Old cider). She's still a killer at heart, but now does so enthusiastically for her friends and loved ones, and not just personal gain.
Alts: Larksong, Hollydell, Linhaewen
Willowing completed her second turn at kin leadership and now plays a role in general administration of the website. She's always ready with a painful pun in chat. Larksong plays music and contributes songs to our band, Breakfast Club, and is the builder and manager of the music site called Breakfastmusic.proboards.com.
Willowing is the head of household for herself and a couple of dozen others living in Crickhollow, including Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits, Men, a Beorning and a Warg (whom they try not to mention or think about after the Hobbit "incident"). There's a Larksong or Larkfeather on every server, and if you need help, call upon any member of my family!!
Second Breakfast is the best home one could ever hope for in Middle-Earth!
Fellowship and Events Officer
alts: Kittiette, Kittiebear, Kittieapple, Kittietreat
What I do: I am here to help in any way, but my main job is to run group content and run or help with events. Please let me know if there is any content you want to run and I can help you out!
Why I'm here: I love being a part of a wonderful group of people who enjoy all things Tolkien and just being together.
LOTRO background: I have been playing LOTRO on and off since 2011. Originating on Riddermark, I came to Crickhollow after the server closures.
Some IRL info: I have a husband and 5 cats whom I adore, love reading and gaming, and am an iced coffee addict!
alts: Findelos, Sealwen, Tinuwen, Tythis
I'm available to help in any way I can. I have Honoured Guilded crafters in all crafts. I like getting together in groups and helping in instances and in landscape.
I like seeing the kin doing group activities so folks can learn them and their place in more complex situations.
I have been playing LOTRO on and off since 2011. As an engineer, I have a quirky sense of humor - sorry (not sorry). I have many characters of all classes and races.
alts: Applecider, Elladahn, Ellrohier, Anarlossë
I’d like to make newcomers feel welcome like SB made me feel when I started playing LOTRO in 2019. I love events & group shenanigans – let me know how I can help plan!
I love that SB’s interests are so varied; we’re a lovely tapestry of people! Some like the music, some are into the raiding, fest’ing, cosmetic’ing, and some RP’ing. – About my chars? I tend to play at least semi “In-character,” and every alt has a quirk unique I ascribe to them, to make them more mechanically interesting to game with. -- About me? I’m a lifelong gamer & fantasy nerd, though new to LOTRO since 2019.
Anarlossë is my hard(-er)-core RP alt, and the subject of a writing/drawing project I maintain at https://greendwagon.wordpress.com/
Music and Events Officer
Alts: Uberine, Fridrikr, Kytraan, Laggi
I help run music events and the Sunday RT Raid. I work to keep the kinship informed about concerts and special events, to keep the diverse interests of an active and creative kinship in touch. And I help out in small and medium ways with crafting, group adventuring and expanding the knowledge base of the group.
Rheniogil is the front man for the Rakes of Kilkarill, a six-piece band of eclectic tastes you can catch at Bread & Jam and sundry other musical endeavors. He's also part of the core team running cap-level dailies/weeklies for kinfolk and allies.
I first started playing Lotro in Early 2008 after watching my then 14yo son playing the game and it looked like fun so I tried it. We started on the server Vilya and joined a kin called Southern Comfort. Moved all my characters to Arkenstone when the servers consolated and played there eventually joining a kin called Kindred Spirits. When they shut down the kin I started playing on Crickhollow and enjoyed it so I started looking for a kin and found my new home here at Second Breakfast.
I help maintain the warehouse neighborhoods for our kin, and Jofurbarth is my counterpart in helping keep track of everything! Occasionally, I put on events to gather items that are needed for the warehouses. If you ever have a question about where to find something or need help navigating the neighborhoods, I'm the person to ask!
I love coffee, comfy clothes, tators, tacos, and blankets – not necessarily in that order. I am not a night owl, so many times you will see me on LOTRO in the mornings. I started playing LOTRO in 2021. I absolutely fell in love and started making spreadsheets to keep track of all my alts (all of whom have "Tog" in their name :). Make sure to say hi!).
Deeding Officer and Alt Server Ambassador
Alts: many Akis
Well, I'm Aki, of course! Long time friend of fellow officer Kittienna, I have been playing lotro since December of 2010 originating on the Riddermark server.
I try to do a bit of everything; crafting, deeding, questing, group content... I'm always doing something when I can! I am a hobbit at heart, I love food and having fun. I am Aki on almost every server, so if you're ever looking for me that's who to look for.
Music and Events Officer and Alt Server Ambassador
Alts: Erigeron, Appleborek, other servers: Erlindol
I am the self-appointed social butterfly of Second Breakfast. I’m always in chat greeting people, cracking jokes and helping out where I can. If you drop by Bread & Jam for the first time or haven’t been for a while, chances are I’ve said hello. I am active at most social and music events, sometimes visibly or helping out in the background. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to sync a dance, I’m your elf.
I’m still a relative newbie, both to LOTRO and MMOs in general, so I remember well how much I didn’t know when I started. If you have the sorts of questions that you maybe feel a bit foolish asking about in the early parts of the game, I am here for you. I promise you, I have asked them myself!
The thing I love about LOTRO as a whole, and SB in particular, is how much variety there is. There is no singular way to enjoy the game. We contain multitudes! I am a jack of all trades, and like to dabble in a bit of everything. You will find me at social events, concerts, round robins, raid night, festivals, crafting halls and riding around the countryside questing.
Gelglir is my social main and leads my band, East of the Sea. Erigeron is my game-play focussed alt, a hobbit hunter with aspirations of completionism, while also being highly distractible. If you happen to be visiting other servers, especially Landroval, you will find me there as Erlindol, most likely dancing with the crowd at the Pony.
Technical and Events Officer
Alts: Ammonium, Molten, Pyrylium; Phlogiston on Sirannon
I like to help out with events and group content, but I specialize in more technical aspects: analyzing new systems, and coming up with info on how to use them effectively; making small plugins on request (got an idea? let me know!); and sometimes other support, in-game or on Discord.
Crickhollow is my home, although I also visit Sirannon, mainly at festivals. I adore Crickhollow's friendly and helpful community, and have found that Second Breakfast exemplifies the best of it! I've played LotRO since 2015, although I briefly had some characters on Riddermark before that, long-forgotten and now marooned.
Alts: Mirabelle, Applejewel
If officers had a night shift, I’m on it! I’m here to help whenever I’m online, but if you play in the Oceanic/Asian timezone, I’m (usually) your guy. I’m a bit of a jack of all trades so far, so you can find me anywhere, from kin raids to warehouse maintenance to event planning.
SB has a myriad of different people, but we’re all united under the same few things: joy, kindness, and good food. We have each other’s backs and help each other out, and the fact that this extends to the community outside of our kin is what makes it so special to me.
