    [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

    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:

    http://lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Green_dragon_fridays

    I've left a stub for you to edit.

    Thanks for the stub! I will likely update it, once me head has stopped spinning from trying to play with all the new toys over here.

    In the meantime, have a biscuit *offers one from her sizeable stash*

    Edit: A first cut of our lorebook entry is now up!

    Lovely job on the page Lina, I'm quite looking forward to the next GDF and no doubt all the new faces. I'm sure Barmy won't mind all the extra customers.

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    I only started RPing on my small alt's just before the servers went down. But I have three hobbit's with three different personalities who would like to drop by occasionally.

    I am a little slow at the rping but willing to learn. My hobbit's are, Rosebelle, Hollybelle and Lilyrosa.

    Hope to see you all in the Dragon tomorrow (if the servers are back up).

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    Come once, come several times, come every time - no matter, as long as you are in the spirit of things, you will be welcome. And we try our best to be helpful to those new at roleplaying too!

    If Laurelin is up this Friday, Barmy will open his doors for us, and GDF will be on as usual. I suspect some of us have been busy converting .abc files these last days too *smiles*

    Should there be technical troubles, we will likely find our way to the Green Dragon on Landroval and enjoy a night at the inn there, at the usual GDF time. But here's hoping Laurelin will be up!

    Smile Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    We greatly enjoy our weekly gathering at the Green Dragon in Bywater. Recently we had a number of different events including concerts, a pie competition, an historical trip to Breeland, and even a Mystery Masquerade Ball under the stars on the last day before the server transfer.

    On Laurelin there are many talented poets, storytellers, dancers, and of course, musicians ...often you will find them at the Green Dragon performing and having fun.

    We hope to welcome you all for a dance, a song, and a pie or two at the Green Dragon *smiles and nods*

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    Well time for me to show up on a GDF now aswell.
    I don't think I will join in fully (tbh I can be a bit shy when it comes to RP ), but just to be sure I will bring alone a riddle

    See you tonight!

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    Back in the mists of time (ok, 2 years ago thereabouts) a small and shy Hobbit lass wandered into the Green Dragon Inn, Bywater looking for the place she'd heard about in tales.
    She happened to arrive on a Friday evening at a little after 8pm (As it was late spring it was BST -the equivalent of Daylight savings).

    What she found was the Green Dragon Friday (Or GDF as it is affectionately known) and thus started my first tentative steps in RP. I had originally joined the server as a "that'll do" decision and had no intent to get involved in that "daft RP stuff".

    The warm and friendly welcome I got at GDF meant I actually stayed until it ended..and came back the next week.

    I later joined a RP kinship (Grand Order of the Lost Mathom) and haven't looked back. I am still a regular at GDF and can often be seen bashing out a tune or two on my harp or lute, or shouting "Is it a duck?" in answer to all riddles.


    A few hints to make the evening go smooth:

    They said they'd be here! If you turn up at the right time and there's noone there, don't worry we haven't all run off and hidden behind the bar. The Layer system in Lotro can put you in a separate version of the same place. We are all in a different version of the Green Dragon. Just give us a /tell and we can get you into the right one.

    Mum always said it was rude to run indoors This was part of one of the first /tell I received. It was said in such friendly way I have always tried to remember it. To toggle between walk/run press INSERT on your keyboard.

    Don't mumble! Emote chat isn't often used on Laurelin, any chat put in Emote is likely to be missed with all the dancing etc. Please use /say as we wouldn't want you to think we were ignoring you.

    Buy the pretty lass in the red dress a drink Joking! This event is for fun, it's a way for friends old and new to get together and relax. Join in, dance a little, sing a song/recite a poem, tell a story or play a tune. The event can be quite hectic and we may not have time for your turn at the fireplace. Don't fear, there is alway next time...Or the time after.

    Thank you, come again! Unlike Apu from the Simpsons we aren't there to serve you, we are there to relax too.

    But the sun is shining! Please remember this event is based on European time, so when we refer to it "being late" and "Time for supper/bed" just go with the flow, it might be mid-afternoon where you are, but to us it's much later.

    Most of all have fun, join in and try a bit of Hobbity-RP

    I look forward to meeting you there.

    I got Harperella 90% through the intro this morning, so I should be able to show up. However, I won't have time to roll a hobbit. I hope you won't mind me bumping my head on ceilings and pinching hobbit cheeks.
