At Yule 2012, the members of Jotun's Bane Kindred unanimously agreed to release Rod Landreth from his kindred oath. In January 2013, we informed Rod Landreth of this decision. Rod is no longer a member of Jotun's Bane Kindred. His luck is his own and he does not speak for us nor does he know our mind.
After graduating from college in May of 2012, Rod was publicly put on Sabbatical from Jotun's Bane Kindred in order to explore his employment opportunities, move into a new house, and make decisions on his next steps in life. Rod was privately told that this "time in the woods" was meant to allow Rod to consider how he fit into the goals and thew of our kindred, and to allow the kindred to consider whether they could continue forward with Rod as a kindred member after a year and a half of difficulties.
At the end of his "time in the woods," Jotun's Bane Kindred decided that Rod be released from his Kindred oath for the Kindred's benefit, and perhaps his own. Rod remains a friend and a fellow member of the Heathen Folk Community here in the Kansas City Area. Jotun's Bane Kindred has only well wishes for Rod as he moves on to another chapter in his life.
