    Ales and Tales at the Duillond dancing area this week. We'll be having partner dance lessons as well as the normal music, stories, and social RP.

    One of our best Ales and Tales yet! We had tales from Harperella, Alelneia, and Tarnoli. Harperella taught partner dances to those who knew /dance_man, /dance_elf, and /dance_elf2. Tamirien, Harperella, Rohanwood and Kaleigh all formed a 4 person dance from /dance_elf which was quite exquisite. Behold!



    See you next week at Lin Giliath. Those poor elves need some cheering up! Also, there have been all these rumors out of Mirkwood of late...

    Dangit! I've been telling myself I'm going to go to one of these for the past several weeks and always seem to get caught up in something else. Perhaps posting here will make me remember to go next week.

    I think that dance we did would have made an excellent addition to one of the Lonely Mountain Band videos!

    Ales and Tales is tonight at 1030 EST in Lin Giliath! That's the half-ruined elf village, south of Gatson's farm in the North Downs.

    We are coming up to the Rumors of Mirkwood event, so feel free to start passing gossip and rumors you've heard from the Elves in this Ales and Tales. Remember, not all rumors are true...

    Oh, I hope I can make it tonight! I've entered it into my Google Calendar. It'll be my first Ales & Tales.

    Re: ALES & TALES (every Monday!)

    I forgot to mention... Lin Giliath is a mid to upper 20s area. If you are having trouble getting there, send a /tell to any of the following:

    Ashenwoods, Ulfred, Meribuc, Harperella, Galenswerd

    We'll get you set up with a hunter port.

    Re: ALES & TALES (every Monday!)

    Ales and Tales was a great success!



    Kayleigh treated us with a sad but beautiful poem, complete with combat skills to accompany the words. Omsi the dwarf gave us a fun little story of fireworks and pubs. He's the blur in the picture declaiming to the rest of us.

    Master hobbit Keptwise, Macalaure and their musical troupe kept us supplied with big band music. Also of note were Fionualla and Arachas, playing some lovely duet pieces. Curulinde supplied us with some wonderful dance music as well.

    We gathered up for some even larger group dancing this week, forming a circle of 8 dancers for a really lovely circle dance. It even brought out the Bog-Guardians to have a look!



    All in all, a lovely Ales and Tales!

    Did someone put something in Arachas' ale?



    And lets not forget Harperella's lovely freestyle music.



    Now that's talent!

    Thanks to the Lonely Mountain Band for hosting this event. I came to my first one last night and it was very enjoyable. I'm looking forward to the next one.

    Hey, I can see myself sitting in there!

    This was my first Ales & Tales too, and as I said to Harperella, it was more fun than I could have imagined (and I came in about an hour late!). I'm excited to attend the next one.

    Re: ALES & TALES (every Monday!)

    I think this was the most crowded I've ever seen Ales and Tales! And it seems like even more people were chatting and joking and interacting, too, which was nice. I hope the trend continues.

    A quick note - due to some unforeseen difficulties, I ended up broke AND late for the party (brewing enough ale for a party like that is hard work!) and Ashenwoods was kind enough to port me to Esteldin. Thank you, Ashenwoods! And thank you, everyone who quested with me afterwards!

    Sooo . . next week, Bird and Baby, was it? I had too much ale and my notes got a bit confused . .

    I apologize for the failure to execute the song lyrics as I had intended for the 'Song of the Eldar in Exile'. Next time I'll roll the dice and try the windowed version of LOTRO. Last time I did that it messed up my UI, but it's been a few years so perhaps they fixed that.

    I use windowed mode whenever I'm working on making drum parts and never have a problem.

    Another trick is to create a lorebook page. You can open it ingame and cut and paste from that page. However, you can't close it--you'll lose your place and have to search for it again.

    Suggestion: Always play in Windowed Mode not just for band/event nights and set your UI for that. That's what I do and I never have problems with having to reset my UI. You can have it almost your whole screen but still have access to your desktop.

    Another Ales and Tales missed! Confound it all. I've been sick, I have an excuse.

    But I miss you all

    Next week I am going to be on a plane at that time. Aaaaugh! The week after. I swear!
