Servers are down! Badgers are panicking! But there will be a Bards Day Concert no matter!
The fate of tonight’s planned Bards Day Concert on Laurelin is uncertain still, given that LOTRO is currently down. However, hobbits won’t lie down that easily!
Much like we did back in February with the Virtual Green Dragon Friday, if need be we will run the concert here instead, linking in relevant videos about Tolkien’s works and having the chat going strong in the comments section. Should the servers come back up, we’ll move swiftly onto Laurelin and get on with the show there.
The virtual concert starts at 7:30PM UK (2:30PM servertime), unless the game is up. See yer then, either here or in the game!
This is a “virtual” version of a concert we planned to honour the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. As such, I’ll update this post with (hopefully) interesting links and music videos during the next hours.
Else, the comments section is where you can chat with others and also offer up your own links. I’ll move some of them into the main post as the time passes.
There is no registration to post here, but you need to use your e-mail + a name. The comments section is WordPress Jetpack-based, so if you have a WordPress account, you should be able to use that to post here.
Above all, have fun!
7:15PM UK: The game is up again! Off to the Ivy Bush everyone! We may delay the start a little!
7:00PM UK And here is the voice of the old bard himself, reading the One Ring poem
6:51 PM UK: Here’s the latest official info from Turbine on what is going. “… we feel we are very close to restoring services.”
