← back to About the Eagles of Thorondor

We are the recommended kinship on the Meneldor server for the second session of Professor Jay Clayton’s Coursera course Online Games: Literature, New Media and Narrative.

The kinship was originally set up by a Coursera student in the first session of this course. Many non-Coursera students have joined since and we’ve evolved into a supportive kinship for players of all interests and abilities.

We’re honoured to have been chosen by Professor Clayton as the recommended kinship on the Meneldor server. Individual members of the Eagles are acting as in-game mentors and helping out on the forums for the new session of the course. As a group we’ve also worked out a schedule of events to support and supplement students as they progress through the course.

We’ve created a number of documents which we hope new players will find useful. On this website our New Member Guide and LotRO FAQ tell you about the kinship, new player practicalities and how to get the most from your time in Middle Earth.

If you’ve joined the Coursera course and want the support of our kinship you can contact us or join the kin.
