Bullroarer Took Day 2013 -- You Could Win a Copy of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!

Bullroarer Took Day 2013 -- You Could Win A Copy of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!


Come celebrate Bullroarer Took day with us! On March 14th we’ll begin accepting screen shots from all over Middle-earth honouring the mighty Bullroarer Took! You could win a copy of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Blu-Ray! (It’s about another very famous Hobbit that you might have heard about.)

For those who don’t know their Shire History, Bandobras "Bullroarer" Took led the Hobbits at the Battle of Greenfields when Orcs from Mount Gram, led by their Chieftain Golfimbul, invaded the Northfarthing. During the battle, Bandobras defeated Golfimbul with a mighty blow that knocked off his head. Golfimbul's head flew through the air for 100 yards and dropped down a rabbit hole. Thus, according to Shire legend, Bullroarer Took invented the game of Golf!

You can gain your own measure of fame by participating in our Bullroarer Took Screenshot Contest. We’ll select a winner from each category below and post them on LOTRO.com. We’ll include your character name as well as the names of the participants in the screenshot, your server, and your Kinship, if appropriate.

For this contest, we have four varied categories for you to enter. Each user can enter any of the four categories (listed below) twice. If a screenshot you submit wins any category, you’ll win a copy of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Blu-Ray!
