Hail, Men of Gondor! Welcome to People of Minas Tirith. We are a heavy-roleplay, Minas Tirith-based, Gondor-only kinship aimed at bringing the many facets of Gondor's culture to life. Where Tolkien has not elaborated, we fill the gaps with details from his real-life influences—namely Byzantium—tempered by knowledge of Minas Tirith as it is in the books. We strive to paint Gondor as it could have been and to immerse our members into its bustling capital city.
Our ultimate aim is to play off of the culture of Gondor with characters whose development drives the roleplay of Minas Tirith with the collective effort of all our members, from the kinship leader to the newest recruit. We strive to create a dynamic setting including multiple concurrent story arcs featuring characters from all walks of life, developed by all members through both impromptu RP and organised official events. When joining the kinship, both members and officers are equally free to create their own events as long as there is support from both other members and our established lore for the event. These range in size from large public events open to all and advertised on the Laurelin Archives to smaller private events centered around a few characters by themselves. Events are often discussed between kinmembers and kinship associates in places such as our forums or our Discord server. (Do join us on Discord: https://discord.gg/VKJ7Fyj)
Though with each coming day the realm of Gondor wanes and the Dark Lord's forces grow in strength, the White City remains unblemished in the year T.A. 3013, its affairs largely those of its citizens rather than the fight against the Enemy. Despite the watchful eye of Minas Tirith's garrison, tension between the tiers leads to minor strife over class lines. Yet for the most part, the city continues as it always has. Farmers and other common men serve their masters; scholars study; soldiers drill; lords rule.
Children are born unto an uncertain future, lovers are married in a tenuous peace, and good men are buried before they are called.
