The Brandy Badgers visit Winterstock @ Thorin's Gate
Jan 20 @ 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Winterstock is on this weekend. Them even say that the Brandy Badgers have woken up from their winter snooze to go visit there. Who will herd them rascally berry-eaters over there, though? Come see on Sunday!

Date: Sunday January 20
Time: 7PM UK time (2PM servertime)
Location: Landroval server, Thorin’s Gate, small lake just pond of Frerin’s Court (near Silver Deep Mine)

The annual Winterstock Music Festival, presented by the Lonely Mountain Band. All shows will be held at the frozen pond next to the lower-entrance to the Silver Deep Mine in Thorin’s Gate ((Ered Luin region: 14.6S, 102.2W)). There will also be pie, ale, and pipeweed, but do dress warmly! Lots of bands will play over the weekend, including several from Laurelin.

The Songburrow Strollers played at Winterstock in 2014, while the Strollers herded the Badgers there in 2015. The Badgers played on their own in 2017 and 2018, and they will do so this time too. Would some kind hobbit put out a trail of berries for them, hm? Or perhaps we need to hire us some herders…

Come along, bounce and dance, and bring berries to feed the Badgers!

To attend the event, you will have to roll up a character on the Landroval server. The event is held in a safe, low-level zone, so you won’t have to level up much to attend. Just get out of the starter zone, and you can hitch a ride to Thorin’s Gate and follow the stream of folks towards the pond.

Please note: While us Grand Order hobbits on occasion visit other servers, our home is, has always been and will be on Laurelin. So this is a rare visit for most of us to furrin lands!

Sunday’s schedule is below. For the full schedule, see the Winterstock site
