The idea behind this would be to get a group of Gaiscioch who would like to run characters around together to experience the game as much as possible. I'm looking at interest and times, so if you are interested please let me know what times would be best for you!
How it would work:
First, we would get together and vote on one of the free races. This is not a hard requirement (after ~5 levels we can get together if somebody really doesn't like that race!) However, that race will decide the starting area for our adventures once we are out of the tutorial.
From there, we would travel around completing everything we can in the free areas. Once that was done, we would pick another zone to unlock and run around in together. Since we would get plenty of points, we should be able to keep unlocking zones for a bit.
If we need to, we will convert one week's event into a grind for points to unlock more zones. Obviously if people want to skip that and use real money, that is fine... we welcome people to do what they like!
The primary point of it all would simply be sticking together. There's a wealth of options for things we can do over time, and nothing for payments is required (every zone, expansion, or other bit of content can be bought through the in game achievement points system... which is account wide.)
If you are interested, please do let us know! We would be glad to welcome veterans or newcomers to Middle Earth! Ideally starting in September, but that is flexible!
