Green Dragon Friday @ Bywater
Jan 27 @ 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM

Green Dragon

Date: Every Friday
Time: 8PM UK time
Location: Green Dragon Inn, Bywater

Weekly hobbit gathering at the Green Dragon inn in Bywater. Hobbit-preferred event, although a few visiting traveling dwarves are always welcome. Also a 100% in-character event! Come along for songs, dances, poetry, tales, riddles and news! And do offer yer own entertainment, if yer like!

Please note the guidelines for the event:

1) Participate! This event is only monitored by persons, not run. Nobody is there to entertain you all night long. Having said that, some regulars are usually there to move things along. But please bring your own input! Its jolly important that this never ends up being a one-hobbit show.

2) Prepare! Try to bring a riddle, a poem, a song, a short rhyme, some juicy gossip or the likes. If you don’t use it, or if it is not time to use it (sometimes its just not possible to squeeze everything into one night), there’s always next week!

3) Live the Shire! This event follows the lore in that it tries to be a lively hobbit night at the inn. Keep chat in-character and avoid forced emotes, fireworks, apple throwing/snowballs, etc. Also, please try to keep entertainment (songs, stories, rhymes, poems and so on) in tune with the game world, suitable for hobbits living in the Shire. With regard to .abc music, try to steer away from well-known pop/rock songs and the latest top 10 chart contents. Less Lady Gaga! More folk music! Reels, jigs, waltzes, hornpipes and the likes are always popular and will soon have the hobbits dancing!

4) Play a hobbit (or dwarf)! This is a hobbit preferred event. If men and elves wishes to attend this night, please roll a hobbit or ‘travelin’ dwarf. The Shire, although blessed with the ‘odd’ outsider, was not the ‘in’ place to be seen if you were a man-folk or (especially) an elf. Try out the hobbit RP for size instead, you know you want to! You will find you get MORE RP this way!

5) Enjoy yourself! Green Dragon Friday reserves the right to be as flexible, as quiet, as busy, as chaotic, as peaceful, as jubilant as it just happens to be on the night. Few things are planned, most just happen. The whole point is for you lot to meet each others’ characters, chat about whatever you’ve been up to IC’ly, have a good laugh with friends. It’s the people that make the night. If you’re the first to arrive, don’t run off! More will follow, they always do!

OAKS: Radagasts Pipe @ Oldfurlong
Jan 28 @ 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM

Gazette

Dear Friends,

I have hesitated ta announce the January OAKS…  not because it is not a very great honour ta have this exceptional band perform at the OAKS…. 
but because it is exceedingly sad for this will be your very last chance ta hear them in concert in our Middle Earth. 

Master Newine has told me that this will be the very last smoke from Radagast’s Pipe… I no a lot of us have a great deal of respect for his musical ability….

As a dear friend and a prominent member of our musical community told me recently, “Newine is a kind soul and wonderful arranger. I have alot of respect for him and his ((Russian)) Bandmates.” …and many of us have been witness ta several concerts where his band has been so wondrous we wanted ta bring them home wit us ta share sum of our favorite pie.

Master Newine’s soft-spoken kind nature and his ability ta transport us ta a happier place wit his music makes me wish all of us could hear him once more afore he has ta go away from Middle Earth..

Now we can! 

He is comin back fer …”One Last Smoke wit Radagast’s Pipe” !!!!!!  *grins*

It will be incredible to hear his phenomenal music once agin at the January OAKS on Saturday January 28 at eight bells in the evenin.

Please dont let yerself miss this one-of-a-kind opportunity to hear Radagast’s Pipe agin…

and if ya never herd them afore…ya got ta hear this band!  Fer sure!!!

So let’s ALL …..hobbits, dwarfies, elufs, and humans two….join t’gether fer a grand party ta send them off in a proper fashion!

I’ll have drinks and smokes fer everybodee….even sum fireworks fer any what need them….

so come bring all yer friends and all yer kin!

We will party!!!

As we dance ta the outstandin music of Radagast’s Pipe!

Woohoo!!
