    [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday - Hobbit RP event



    Every Friday in the Shire is Green Dragon Friday!

    Date: Every Friday
    Time: 7:30PM UK time (usually 2:30PM servertime)
    Location: Green Dragon Inn, Bywater, Laurelin server

    Weekly hobbit gathering at the Green Dragon inn in Bywater, running ever since May 2008. This is an event for and by hobbits, although a few visiting traveling dwarves are always welcome. It is also a 100% in-character event, so don’t go talking about things not belonging in Middle Earth! Come along for songs, dances, poetry, tales, riddles, news and much grand roleplaying! And do offer yer own entertainment, if yer like!

    Sometimes, we’ll run “Lone Bard Fridays”, where we only allow solo or duo performances. This is to limit the impact of big bands at the Dragon, and allow newcomer performers a chance to show their skills.

    At other times over the year, GDF will move to other inns in the Shire. The new years party is usually held at the Plough and Stars in Brockenborings, while we always escape Bywater when the mayor hosts the Farmer’s faire in the late summer.

    Event guidelines:

    Green Dragon Friday is an in-character roleplaying event aiming to replicate a lively hobbit night at the inn. We try to enable a healthy lively hobbit roleplayer community here on Laurelin. To help us do this, please follow these guidelines:

    • While dwarves are welcome at the inn, we ask that taller characters (elves and menfolk) do not attend the event. Men and elves were rarely (if ever) seen travelling through the Shire villages (and especially not the inns).However, if yer have quests to do at the inn, by all means come inside to finish them
    • Be in-character - be a hobbit! Keep player interactions (chats, emotes) and entertainment in-character, basically by talking about the things that hobbits in Middle-Earth would. Don't discuss real-life modern-day things, game mechanics, etc. Avoid using forced emotes, setting off fireworks inside, bringing pets that wouldn't belong in an inn, throwing 3000 snowballs, etc.
    • Be active and engage with the others. It is better to participate than to just stand around waiting for others to entertain you (however, feel free to come observe things the first few times).
    • Avoid multi-boxing with lots of alts. Yes, we know that you love to pull off that fat sound of a many-musician band. However, when the room is full of similarly-clad robots marching in line (if they move at all), who don't respond when you talk to them, things get rather creepy and the immersion we look for is often ruined.
    • Entertainers are very welcome! Just sign up with the hobbit hosting the event, preferably by a /tell. Note that we absolutely love solo bards/performers - a lone lute-player is often better suited for the inn setting than a huge band. Also note that we absolutely love other kinds of entertainment than music: Poems, stories, riddles, the latest news from the Shire... lovely! If you want to play music, it is grand if yer aim for a folksy hobbity vibe, with reels, jigs, waltzes, hornpipes and the likes.
    • Gossip and news is very welcome! This helps bring life to the event and the roleplaying in the Shire. Just remember to keep things in-character. Related to events: We generally don't advertise events held on other servers, events not of hobbit interest, events not held in the Shire or events not of a roleplaying character.

    Additionally, we ask that participants follow the roleplaying rules and policy for Laurelin, with regard to player names, chat behaviour and harassment.

    Lastly, while the above may sound like a long list of rules, don't worry too much! Them hobbits are a friendly and tolerant lot, eager to welcome new visitors to the inn. See yer there!

    Questions about the event?
    Contact Lina, Grand Order of the Lost Mathom.

    When you attend Green Dragon Friday, send your warm thoughts to the first people enjoying the event back in May 2008. Not least the creator, Mae Skeffington, who fought hard to set it up and make it last over the years. That was a mighty fine initiative!

    I do hope Barmy has changed that rug. It wasn't in good shape during the last party. Also I wonder if he's still mad at me for letting that firework off inside...

    But anyway, please do come and join us at GDF, it's a great place to meet new friends as well as catching up with old ones. Bringing a riddle is always a good idea, I hate riddles myself, can never figure them out.

    Hope to see some new faces on friday!

    It's a grand old night!

    Plenty to join in with, even if it's just a spot of dancing and a dollop of Hobbity RP.

    Come join the fun

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    Over the vast ocean blue!
    What to expect? Not a clue!
    It's not been long, not for me, nor for you!
    We'll soon return to Hobbiton-Bywater... Phew!

    I must confess, to my rhyming stupor!
    I'm no good, I know! I could be better!
    But bare with me now, for not much longer.
    Just one more thing to say, before my Supper

    Welcome old friends, to lands-over-yonder!
    Do not be afraid, lie still, see the wonder!
    Things, they have changed,
    yet still, the settings the same
    In just a short while
    We'll be back to our games!

    Here's to the next Green Dragon Friday!

    Greetings, Laurelin, from Twirrim (People of the Shire)

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    I would suggest creating a Green Dragon Friday lorebook entry for permanent storage of information. The devs have stopped pinning player created threads in the last year. Its easy to do, simply go here:

    I've left a stub for you to edit.

    Question

    I was priveleged to participate last week even though I hadn't read this post or any others, but heard about it in the Pony. Hence I brought a woman along. I thoroughly enjoyed it and intend to be ther next week (RL stuff forces me to stay away this week). I now have a hobbit who is trying his best to level up (so he has his own surname). Claralyn will stay in the Pony but Gennetta and Garretd will be there and if allowed will play a reel or jig.


    Garretd would love to sing: he has such a cute voice but my typing is not fast enough to put his wry Hobbit parody lyrics into the window. Is there a quick way of doing this, do you know? I've done some searching but come up with nothing. Cut and paste is so slow!

    Thank you, and see you very soon.

    Hullo there! Grand yer enjoyed it!

    Most singers in-game use a plugin called Lyrical. That will store yer song lyrics/poems/stories, and yer can send new lines into the game by a click of the mouse in sync with yer song.

    Yer can get Lyrical here: http://www.lotrointerface.com/downlo...5-Lyrical.html

    Friday! Hobbits, meet at the Green Dragon in Bywater. The doors open 8PM UK time (3PM servertime). Welcome to a night of songs, dancing, drinking, news and merriment!

    Them last few days, the local hobbits have relaxed a bit after the surge of events at the start of the new year. Today, though, we just might have news of some upcoming parties! So come and listen to the gossip!

    Please note:
    Green Dragon Friday is an event for and by hobbits.
    - Travelling dwarves are welcome (but we surely love it if yer come as a hobbit)
    - We ask men and elves to stay away from the event (although by all means come in to do any quests yer may have in the inn).

    This is not because we're mean and hate tall fellows. It is simply because we try to create a somewhat lore-relevant hobbit inn night every Friday (as we have for close to six years now). Men were a rare sight in the Shire inns, and most local hobbits in Bywater had never laid eyes upon an elf.

    Should yer want to join the event, please roll up a hobbit instead - it is marvellous fun!

    Happy pie day, everyhobbit! Celebrate with a pie! Oh, and of course with a visit to the Green Dragon later today! The doors open at 8PM UK (4PM servertime due to the US being on Daylight Savings Time) as usual.

    Songs, dancing, riddles, poems, drinking, news and whatever else we can think of! Welcome hobbits!
