It is the third Archet Aid this weekend, and us hobbits are mighty involved. The hobbit market is in town, the Shire Angling Club hosts a pre-faire fishing competition, and them say that those rascally Songburrow Strollers will play as well! However, most of the work is done by Grymrock and ‘The Chosen Few’!
Archet Aid is an RP event in the town of Archet, on the Laurelin server. The event was started in 2011 by the band ‘The Chosen Few’, who thought a solidarity concert for those poor farmers of Archet was a good idea for a yearly event.
This year, Archet Aid is in three parts:
- A pre-fayre fishing competition, run by the Shire Angling Club (ca 30 minutes)
- The Archet Aid fayre, with a hobbit market, street performers, open-sky bar (due to the Inn burned down), processions etc (ca 2 hours)
- The Solidarity Concert for the poor farmers of Archet, with bands from Laurelin and visiting bands from other servers (ca 2 hours)
Tentative schedule in UK times (servertime in parentheses). All times subject to change, see the official Archet Aid site for up-to-date information. Note that there is just a 4-hour difference between UK time and servertime this weekend, since the EU ended Daylight Savings Time last weekend (and the US does so this coming Sunday).

Archet Aid is an RP event in the town of Archet. The reason for this is both the background story of the place, but also because it is an area that everyone, regardless of level and race, are able to travel to quite easily. If you need any help in getting there, please give the organizers a ‘nudge’, and they can help you there (they got ‘hunter-taxis’ on standby).
