    Baggins' Birthday Tour (Wednesday, Sept. 22 - 9:30p ET)

    Hear ye! Hear ye! It is time to party like a hobbit!

    Event: Baggins' Birthday Tour
    Date: 2010.09.22, Wednesday
    Time: 9:30p ET/6:30p PT
    Where: VILYA server - See "Tour Route" below for more details

    NOTE:
    • The music is expected to last about an hour, followed by a "Frodo Run".
    • "Frodo Run" may take 2-3 hours depending on the number of players, and what level characters are present.
    • Raid groups (up to 24 persons per group) will be used to help us communicate and keep track of each other along the way.

    It is again that time of year to celebrate two famous (or "infamous" as some may say) hobbits' birthdays: Mr. Bilbo Baggins & Mr. Frodo Baggins. While both have left the Shire for what can only be some crazy adventure, it only seems reasonable to honor their absence by toasting their good names on their birthday, September 22.

    This year, we're changing things up a bit. The first part of the evening will be a music concert by Vilya's own music group, Bards of a Feather. The second part of the evening is a "Frodo Run"* hosted by the Guardsmen of the Free Peoples.


    * What is a "Frodo Run"?
    We follow the path of Frodo and his hobbit friends after they leave Bag End (the Shire) until they finally arrive at The Last Homely House (Rivendell). It's a good opportunity to see Middle-earth from a different perspective (as the famous hobbits, we do not always stay on the road), and for lower-level characters to open up some additional stable-master points along the way.

    Absolutely wonderful. I had a blast. I got a whole lot of screenshots of the concert,and a few of the run.





    so as not to clog up the forums with thirty-seven pictures, here's the link to the photobucket album where I stuffed all the screenshots I took:

    Thank you to everyone that took time out of their busy schedules to either listen and/or run with us. It was great to see so many participate, both newer and veteran players. There were MANY kinships well represented.

    I have a short list of players that I wish to thank as well, for their patience and effort to help put on the event:
    - Celebcharas (Evenstar) - musician
    - Elvisa (Evenstar) - lead one of the raid groups on the run
    - Garethor (Guardsmen of the Free Peoples) - musician & run
    - Iranon (Last Alliance) - musician
    - Magnarr (United Races) - lead one of the raid groups on the run
    - Warinus (Guardsmen of the Free Peoples) - musician & run

    Those screenshots and videos all look fantastic! Thank you for sharing.



    I must once again say, Vilya Rocks!
