Green Dragon Friday Yule Party @ Bywater
Dec 27 @ 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

Come celebrate yule with us at the Green Dragon!

Date: Friday December 27
Time: 7:30PM UK time (2:30PM servertime)
Location: Green Dragon Inn, Bywater, Laurelin server

While we fully expect that many hobbits may be busy celebrating yule with family and close friends this Friday, other might need an ale to calm down after the festive storm. Yer are heartily welcome to the Green Dragon yule party!

Here is what is planned:

  • Mulled cider! Barmy will be keeping the kettle on all night, so yer can help yerselves to soothing spicy mullied cider.
  • The yule pork feast! A festive day calls for a festive meal, and few things are as festive as pork (unless yer have a live one living in yer study or somet…). Barmy will be cooking up a pork-flavoured meal, served all night.
  • Yule stories and poems
  • Yule songs
  • Perhaps a yule riddle or two?
  • All the latest hobbit news, of both yule and beyond!
  • Good-natured banter and gossip with your hobbit friends, both old and new!

So do come for a mug of mulled cider, good company, a story, a dance and tender pork with all the trimmings. If yer have entertainment and news to share, that’s grand too! Welcome, hobbits! And a very merry yule to everyone!

Please note: Green Dragon Friday is a roleplaying event for hobbits. While travelling dwarves are always welcome at the inn, for lore reasons we generally ask that the Big Folk do not attend. Please roll up a hobbit instead to attend, it is grand fun!

Once again, the people of Winterhome have opened their doors for us and invited us to join in their Yule festivities. To thank them for all the work they do for us, the Brandy Badgers will go on their annual wassail through Winterhome, this year on December 29. We will walk through the town, stop at the houses, and wish the people well with our songs.

It would be grand and lovely if yer join us there! Welcome!

It is quite likely that Winterhome will be layered, with players split into different versions of the village. Please contact the organizers for instructions of how to get into the right layer.
