In short:Fellowships are player communities where players with similar play styles or interests gather to make their everyday play experience easier and more fun.
Fellowships grant a variety of benefits. In the trader, you can see offers of your other fellows, and accept them without a fee. You can give neighbourly help to all your other fellows. And finally, we will add a circular mail functionality to our message system, so you can communicate fast and easy with your fellows. A chat will also be added soon.
There are three ways to become part of a fellowship. You can found your own fellowship, set the name, customise the banner and write a short description. Or you apply to an already existing fellowship, just visit a player with a fellowship, open the fellowship window and click on apply. You have to wait until the fellowship approves your application. The third way is the most comfortable one, fellowships can send invites to other players. Check for invites in your fellowship window and accept one.
We hope you are looking forward to this exciting new feature. It will be released in a few weeks.
Lord of the Rings, both the first film and the original book by J.R.R.Tolkien, was named "The Fellowship of the Ring".Another question just came to my head... why 'fellowship'?
