    Gnomes Horse Race 2013

    Get your horses fed, rested and cleaned!


    The Gnomes Horse Race 2013!

    This year we'll be making the race public for everyone to join and the race will be held in the North Downs!

    Starting point will be the burned town of Trestlebridge and the finish line will be the path to Angmar in the back of the Hillmen camp Ost Crithlanc (7.6S 35W).
    If you look at the map of the North Downs you'll see there's a few ways people can travel.
    Remember that you don't have to be out of level range with the enemies (45+ will give you free passage) but it will make things easier!

    Will you be the fastest and get a place in our Hall of Gnomes as Top Gnome in the race of 2013?
    Everyone is welcome to sign up and join in the race!

    Signing up can be done by sending an ingame mail to Thranthir with the entry fee and the name of the character that will participate.

    Nice work guys, looks like everyone had a blast
    Maybe we can look into more events like this in the future. I for one would be keen to have events that don't concern questing or combat, to give a little variety to our characters' lives
