Background

DURIN'S FOLK

Sigin-tarâg

Late in the Third Age, with troubles rising and a shadow in the East, the King Under The Mountain, Dáin Náin's son Ironfoot. King of the Longbeards, ordered Duinn Muninn's son Drakenbane to the establish thekinship of Durin's Folk; to unite the Longbeards abroad and unify them under a single banner. 

Durin's Folk is a kinship that has risen as a bastion for the dwarves, mainly consisting of the Longbeards that descend from, indeed, Durin the Deathless himself. While there are other dwarves of the Seven Houses that call Durin's Folk their home.

Durin's Folk has its base deep in the underground halls of Thorin's gate, where they plan out their many expeditions, trade, faires and to nullify the efforts from the great shadow that threatens to swallow Middle-earth. Safe guarding the Blue Mountains and helping their allies in their lands and homes; elevating their efforts to legend.

Finally the Third age will be the time when the great war that has lasted for so many centuries will perhaps be finally concluded. The Free peoples are battered and bruised from the long struggle and do not longer wield the great power and splendor they had once held. 


The dwarves of Durin's Folk are no fools and despite some resentment within it's rank towards other races, they have reached out to make allies where they can, to defend middle-earth from the shadow of the east and ensure that everyone's part will be done in this great struggle.

Will you do your part as a fellow dwarf? 
Or are you in search for strong friends?


Join the great battles that await and the remaking of the ancient arts lost to us!

OUT OF CHARACTER INTRODUCTION

Durin's Folk, created in 2011 on the Laurelin [EU] is a heavy RP kinship, unique because of a variety of reasons. To mention a few - we have unique events that incorporate Neo-Khuzdul, we host the Dwarrow Ting, and, although we are a heavy RP kinship, we are also oriented towards game progression, based and even sometimes blended with RP for extra fun.

The kinship strives to come as close to Tolkien's description of the dwarves as possible, and offers players a change to indulge themselves in this legendarium. By offering Neo-Khuzdul and Lore lessons, we hope to broaden insight to the linguistic, cultural and societal aspects of what it means to be a dwarf in Middle-earth.

Like true Dwarrows, we are proud of our heritage, our beards, our kin, our beards, our friendly community, and our beards. Did we mention that we are proud of our beards?

All Joking aside, Durin's Folk is also home to a few well-known events and initiatives on Laurelin, such as the Dwarrow Ting, the Harnkegger Games, the Tablets of Khazadgund and the famed Rolling Kegs band.

Our kinship works with a foundation based upon three important Pillars of Dwarrow society:

< Lore >

< Force >

< Trade >

We implemented these Pillars as subgroups in the kinship. You can learn more about the Pillars on the Pillars' page

We have different ranks and uniforms. One uniform system is for ceremonial purposes only, and mandatory for events deemed ceremonial. The other is free for all to use, with two exceptions of color. Furthermore, the kinship has a military side and a civil side: being active in one side does not exclude you from taking part in the other. The division is simply for what kind of RP is appropriate.

If we sparked your interest and you want to learn more about us, please visit our I'gelrûk page to learn more about our Kinship.
