Floating Log Friday @ Frogmorton
Aug 21 @ 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

Ol’ Flourdumpling is busy stuffing his face over in Bywater during the Farmer’s Faire, and there are lots of visitors there stepping on the local hobbits. So naturally, the weekly hobbit inn night will move from the Green Dragon! To The Floating Log!

Date: Friday August 21
Time: 7:30PM UK time (2:30PM servertime)
Location: Floating Log Inn, Frogmorton

Have no fear, master Ponto Hopsbloom is more than happy to welcome hobbits to the Floating Log in Frogmorton. He’ll greet yer all warmly, although hopefully not with warm ale, and better not with the most “hoppy” of the local ales…

Usual Green Dragon Guidelines apply, which means this is an event by and for hobbits. The odd visiting dwarf is always welcome, though! Should yer have any entertainment (songs, stories, riddles, poems or the likes), please bring it along!

Brandywine river

What? Surely yer mean Green Dragon Friday? Naw! This coming Friday, August 28, we’re at the Golden Perch in Stock!

So Barmy over at the Green Dragon is busy this week. The Farmer’s Faire is about to start in Bywater, and he’ll be all busy cooking fer the guests that wanders around outside. And, not least, that gluttony mayor of ours, Ol’ Flourdumpling. So Barmy pleaded, PLEADED us he did, ter try find a different venture fer the night.

What better place then to visit than Stock? So we had a chat with master Gunderic Grubb over at the Golden Perch, who welcomed us with open arms. He promised us ales at half the price of Barmy’s brands, with lots of brandy wine thrown in fer good measure. So here, fer yer convenience, is all them details:

Golden Perch Friday, August 28, 7:30M-9:30PM UK (2:30PM – 4:30PM /servertime).

And as always, usual Green Dragon Guidelines apply, which means this is an event by and for hobbits. The odd visiting dwarf is always welcome, though!

Bards Day 2020 @ Hobbiton
Sep 2 @ 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

A day to remember the bards of old and the music they inspired.
Not least that grand feller Ronald Dwale.
Welcome to the annual Bards Day in the Ivy Bush Inn!

Date: Wednesday September 2
Time: 7:30PM UK (2:30PM servertime)
Location: Ivy Bush inn, Hobbiton, The Shire, Laurelin server

A day to remember the writers of the tales, poems and songs we treasure today. A selection of tunes related to one of the finest writers we have seen, master Ronald Dwale.

The Brandy Badgers will perform a selection of songs and poems based on the works of master Dwale. Afterwards, the stage will be open for other bards who would like to share suitable works for the occasion.

All are welcome to come to attend the Bards Day: hobbits, dwarves, elves and men.

OOC details:

J.R.R. Tolkien passed away September 2nd 1973. On this date, every year since 2012, we have paid homage to him with an evening of music and poetry in the Ivy Bush, playing tunes inspired by Tolkien’s works (from the movies or adapted from his writings and poems) and reciting some of Tolkien’s poems. The main part of the concert is performed by The Brandy Badgers, the in-house music collective in the Grand Order of the Lost Mathom.

Given the event theme and the date, this is not a strict roleplaying event, so players of all sizes and shapes are welcome. However, we will stay in-character: Instead of speaking about Tolkien, the musicians will play songs inspired by Ronald Dwale, Tolkien’s in-game alter ego.

Although there would be many lore reasons to have the concert in the Bird and Baby, the inn is somewhat unsuitable for music. So we have moved to the Ivy Bush instead.

The Badgers will perform for ca 90 minutes. Afterwards, the stage is open for anyone who would like to play a tune or recite a poem suitable for such an event.

Welcome to the Ivy Bush September 2nd!

Come along for songs, dances, poetry, tales, riddles and news! And do offer yer own entertainment, if yer like!

This is a hobbit event, although a few visiting traveling dwarves are always welcome. Also a 100% in-character event!

Time: 7:30PM UK time (2:30PM servertime)
