    Saturday Night Social

    The first ever Saturday Night Social went fairly well. About 15 people showed up initially (plus a few background lurkers). Music and dancing ensued.

    Members of several kins showed up after the event ended. Not their fault they missed it. Word was slow in getting around.

    Next saturday night we will do it again. May 7th. 9pm. The Prancing Pony Inn in Bree.

    If you are interested in performing just show up and join the que. When one person finishes, the next can begin.

    We had mostly music and dancing this week. Looking for a short story or some poetry for next week to break up the music.
    The music was all soloists. Are there any bands out there?

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    Saturday May 7th is the next weekly Saturday Night Social. (9pm Eastern Time)

    Once again this week, our second week, we will hold it at the Prancing Pony. Everyone knows where the Pony is and its a high traffic area good for exposure. Next week we will start mixing it up a little.

    I'll be there with my pipes and a spot of poetry. All are welcome to join in. Tell a tale, sing or play a song, share your cooking or your home brew. Or just come and watch! Mingle with other adventurers and plan your next raid or skirmish. Enjoy the friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    I have already contacted you Skalanis. This is fingorn. I was wondering if we will be having a raid after the small gathering. Or if we should take our time until that. But it would defenitly be enjoyable by many. Maybe a raid on Fornost, probably a non skirmish because not everyone has fornost. Just a suggestion. Let me know what you think via fourms or mail. Thanks.

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    Fornost... no... please. With a new confused team it took me 7 hours for a full run. 4 hours with a good team. That means a minstrel who knows how to heal and keep away from aggro and two tanks. It would help to have a cap/LM/burg along but its not necessary, its an instance where you can dps stuff to death. Unless you have 4 hours to spare and someone experienced, so um sure go ahead O.o;

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    Okay so i guess no to Fornost..maybe another, but would Fornost be easier if we didn't do the instance, i wasn't really planning on the instance because not everyone has it.......have any suggestions for a raid then?

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    The second Saturday Night Social has concluded.

    I tried to note those who showed up:
    Amicitia Vimes told us a rousing tale with a surprise ending. Maegrosil, Dagthire Gwaew, Heroblazer and several others contributed musical entertainment. Davison the Ranger brought along a very well behaved bear (much to Barliman Butterbur's chagrin). Fingorn brought news of an orc incursion in the fields north of Bree and organized a raid that departed after the Social ended. Carvilvith gave an open invitation to a picnic and swimming day at the pond near her house in the homesteads (I have a feeling this is going to be a recurring Sunday family event...we shall see). Others arrived to enjoy the evening including the lovely Myarrin, Lothiniel, Alduin, Zoso, Romuil, Sabell, Rodllollir, Merock, Devinerapier, Fencot, Lidblod, Redwine, Valeinie, Daemondred and the minstrel Ningannel Zee made a brief appearance. The evening wrapped up with the Night Watch performing some excellent musical selections.

    Thanks to all who attended.

    Next weeks SNS is being planned already. It will be a little more organized and refreshments will be provided. Bring your dancing shoes. Details will be posted here later (or see our add in the Free Peoples Press).

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    The location of the next Saturday Night Social is the Comb and Wattle Inn [28.7S, 49.3W] located inside Combe in Bree-land to the east of Bree. May 14th, 9pm Eastern time.

    The theme for the night will be "Chickendance"
    The chicken-coop was left open and the chickens have scattered. Some of them made their way inside the Inn. Since there seems to be no way to get them out again... if you cant beat them, join them!
    Bring your dancing shoes because the one rule for the night is that whenever the house band starts to play the Chickendance song, everyone has to stop what they are doing and dance. There will be a prize for the best dancer.

    Not only will the Comb and Wattle Inn's famous Beakbreaker Ale be served, but The Darkwood Marauders will be sharing some of their stock of beverages from far-away lands. Come and have a drink on us!

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    The Comb and Wattle Inn will never be the same!

    The third SNS is done. Much fun was had. The Men of Bree dominated this night with much merrymaking. Verc stood out as their minstrel and Goldenbeard recited several excellent poems. Leymar of the Ithillien Rangers contributed to the entertainment with several musical selections and the lovely Myarrin recited a ballad as well. Gundalf the tea drinking wizard put on a fireworks display that will not soon be forgotten!

    Many chickens danced when Carvilvith, Mirfin and I played the Chickendance song, but Verc won the dance contest. Lavenwyn was the best dressed in a beautiful lavender gown and hat specially made for the event!

    Many fine draughts were exchanged including brews from far away places like Moria and Rivendell. Several fine souls participated in some sparring as well. I got caught up in the drinking and the sparring and did not fare so well, but I will heal...hehe.

    Carvilvith announced that her Sunday picnic and family swim event would be taking place again. 11am Eastern time. 3 Garden Street, Foxlin. Bree-Land Homesteads.

    Thanks to all who participated!

    Details on the next SNS will follow.

    *raises hand* May I suggest something that might be even more fun for that evening (not that the regular social events aren't, because they do sound like a good time and I just haven't made it to one yet)? There's an RP wedding going on in the Shire that night.... don't want to step on toes, but there's going to be pie, fireworks, music, dancing, a least a dozen bear jokes, and, well, the wedding part..... and a lot of RPers who would love to come to the social have been invited to the wedding already... just a thought, since it's a one-time and totally non-repeatable thing.... I could post further details here if that's something that sounds like it would be awesome (cause, it will be

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    This week at the Golden Perch we had a smaller crowd, but many new faces.

    We had music and dancing, much chit chat and many shared around their pipeweed as well.

    Some of the boys got rowdy, but before they could break down into brawling, Fingorn organized them into a group and they went to spend their energy on a goblin encampment. Woe to those goblins...there was a lot of energy there.

    Thanks to all who attended!

    Details will soon be posted for next weeks SNS.

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    I am not able to be at the SNS this week due to pesky real life issues.

    If someone is willing to take some notes on what goes on so I can write up a little report afterwards, that would be awesome! Send me a pm please and thanks.

    I completely enjoyed my first LotR RP experience at the Green Dragon this evening. I wish I could have stayed longer but real life doesn't always oblige.

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    For those who dont know what to expect at the SNS:

    The Social is just a gathering of people. There are entertainers who like to show off their skills, be it music or otherwise. There are those who like to listen to the music, those who like to dance, those who like to just watch and those who like to socialize. Many come to trade their wares (food/pipeweed/beverages from far off lands/etc).

    There is no real organization...the entertainers try to take turns. If you would like to try something and cant seem to get a turn, just speak up. Let the entertainer know you would like a turn when he is done. Let me (Skalanis) know...I will pay more attention to making sure everyone who wants to gets a turn. Try to be respectful when others are performing...let them have their turn and let them be heard.

    No one is going to greet you at the door and point you to the fun...just come on in and find or make what fun you want.

    Everyone is welcome, anything goes...as long as it is civil and doesn't break any rules.

    Any questions, PM me in game or here in the forums.

    See you Saturday.

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    The July 2 Saturday Night Social is going to be a bit scaled back.

    Many people are away for the holiday weekend (at least in the USA) and with the LOTRO Summer Festival winding up, I dont expect much of a turnout.

    Those who want to partake will be meeting at the Bree-Land Festival Grounds. There is a nice spot with tables and chairs that is out of /say range from the NPCs.

    Re: Saturday Night Social

    The July 9th SNS will be held at the Ivy Bush Inn in Hobbiton. 9pm Server (Eastern) Time, as usual.
