Green Dragon Friday Foreyule Party @ Bywater
Dec 18 @ 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

Come celebrate the Foreyule with us at the Green Dragon!

Date: Friday December 18
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 preparing and planning Yule this Friday, other might need an ale to calm down before the festive storm. Yer are heartily welcome to the Green Dragon Friday Foreyule party!

Expect festive moods, a meal and lots of Yule entertainment. And Pycella has volunteered to host an ale tasting!

So do come for a mug of ale, good company, a story, a dance and grand Foreyule gossips. 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!

For the tenth year, The Brandy Badgers go wassailing in Winterhome! And joy come to our jolly wassail!

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. 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!

OOC details

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.

Barmy keeps the Green Dragon closed to clean up the inn after Yule, and on New Year’s Day we’re off throwing snowballs at each other.

After all, we always do so!

So come greet the new year and the coming brighter days with us! Bring a tale, a song, a poem, a riddle or something similar, especially things related to the new year! If yer have fireworks that’s grand too (fer use outside)! Let’s greet the new year with a party worth remembering!

OOC details:

Same as the regular Green Dragon Friday, this is a hobbit RP event, with dwarves welcome! As usual, we request that tall folks respect the hobbit-oriented nature of the event and not attend. Do roll up a hobbit instead, though, it is marvellous fun!
