    [EVENT] Presenting the 9th Great Elven Ball




    It all started with a naive attempt to dedicate a Ball to the elven roleplayers several years ago. An event to set aside all disagreements and be united in a lighthearted dancing event, also a celebration for our kin anniversary. Without much expectation we gave it a go...

    Few of you might still remember the First Grand Elven Ball back in November 2008 :



    It was a nice event! One of the first of its kind. You did all honor us by joining to our humble event in such numbers and as a result, we made it an annual event next year, properly titled as The 2nd Annual Grand Elven Ball, in October 2009 as some of you remember :

    ]Second event is still considered to be one of the best in the kinship in the terms of spontaneousness, improvisation and the quality of music. The attendance were greater than the first and overwhelming for us. We had but no option to work harder for the 3rd, October 2010 :

    Third event in my opinion was very rich in artistic taste. Since we were more experienced in such events, we knew a bit better what the audience were capable of if directed properly in a synchronized dancing event. Costumes, quality of dancing, roleplaying and the general sense of a ''Ball'' was much more genuine than the first two. We had to work harder to surpass the Third Ball.

    Then in 2011 we have done the fourth. The invitation thread can still be found in forums here :

    The next in the series, The Fifth Great Elven Ball took place 4 years ago. Landroval-Laurelin dual server band Andunie rocked at this event. The musical quality has been elevated to such a level that few would dare to reach that high. The dances were not any lesser than the music either

    Then next event, the sixth, unleashed in 2014 after an interval year. This time we had chosen a non-elven band for the first time. Amorey and The Hobbit Heart played their wonderfully arranged scores all night. It must have been hard to play so long in front of a never ending feast and dancing. Anyways the dances were exceptionally well timed last year also thanks to our new dancemistress Eliriael. You can still access the last year’s invitation thread through here :

    Seventh event portrayed yet another great coordination with the band and the dancemaster. The big dance circles were particularly grand in this one! Also the richest menu of the Elven Ball history was served to the visitors.

    Eighth event was unleashed in November 2016. It was one of the richest in music score of all Elven Ball events thanks to the contributions of the Vanimar's own music band The Lindamar. The rich banquet menu has also become the annual event's highlights next to the dancing. In this particular year a Hobbit lady have earned the first ever "The best dancer prize" from the clutches of .. well a million of elven dancers. Well done Miss Rilla of Shire!

    And now, the show must go on!





    The Ninth Annual Great Elven Ball awaits you. Please as you have done kindly in the last eight years, consider that this event is aimed to be an elven themed event and every non-elf you bring would make it seem less elven. If you are not particularly invited with your Dunedain, Men, Your Dwarves or Hobbits and if you have a proper elven alt, it would be very helpful to attend with them instead of your mighty humans, dwarf lords or hobbitses. Still its up to you! (if you want to explain your presence to Veryacano at the gate and to his cold Hammerites)

    We do kindly await your arrival and yours at the event. Some of you have received in game Invitations and even in some cases, Personally inviting Order of Harp Envoys, and some have not. To clarify things, we want to declare that this is still and open event with some racial limitations and any elf who wish to come to see the biggest and largest synchronised dancing display won't be turned down.

    As usual we consider that the event actually is taking place in Rivendell indoors despite the Falathlorn adress, so lets all pretend that our kinhall is a venue somewhere in the valley. This is due to a measure towards containing possible grieving attempts. In a real venue in Rivendell we have no buttons to contain a bad situation, and Falathlorn is a bridge too far. So no need to perform a 2 week long pilgrimage to dance in character. If you are in Rivendell come! If not, come again!

    See you all there!

    A great piece of history for those who are new... I hope it will attract new elves alongside the familiar faces!
