    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    Another great Green Dragon Friday hosted by Master Simbo in the absence of Miss Lina. Music from at least three new players and a few tunes from some of the regulars made for some good dancing.

    Green Dragon yule party

    A yule-themed Green Dragon Friday! Hobbits all over are invited to celebrate yule Bywater style! And if yer have yule-themed music, stories, poetry or similar yer would like to perform, don't hesitate to sign up!

    Date: December 23rd, 2011
    Time: 8PM GMT/3PM servertime
    Location: Green Dragon inn, Bywater

    Yule is an important celebration for hobbits, which the amount of yule parties recently certainly shows. Even though many hobbits stay home with their family and loved ones during the yule days, quite a few want to meet with their friends as usual.

    So it is no big surprise that Barmy over at the Green Dragon wants to get in on the yule festivities this year (not least since he closed the inn for renovations last year, and lost much in the way of coin because the regulars went to the Bird and Baby instead).

    While the event will follow the usual Green Dragon format, it is especially grand if the entertainment offered has a yule theme to it, be it songs, stories, poems, riddles or similar. Welcome hobbits!

    Oh, and plans are afoot fer the Green Dragon end of year party as well, December 30th!

    OOC details:
    This is Green Dragon Friday, but with a yule-ish theme to it. Usual guidelines apply, which means that this is a hobbit-preferred event, with a few traveling dwarves welcome.

    If yer know yer have some entertainment to offer the crowds, send a message or sign up during the night. We'll try to add in as much as possible within the regular two-hour duration of the event.

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    And what an excellent party it was, with much fine music, stories, poems and dancing!

    Here is a poem in honour of the fine event.

    Ode to the Green Dragon

    Now every Friday, every week
    Green Dragon Inn is what we seek
    In Bywater, it proudly stands
    And folk they come, across the land

    And what is it that draws us in
    To Barmy's little humble Inn?
    Why do we walk in through that door
    Across the creaking wooden floor?

    The ale perhaps? It taste's quite nice
    And sold at quite a reasonable price
    The food is quite enticing too
    Though sadly pies are much too few...

    It's not the rug that's on the floor
    Which barely is a rug no more
    And surely it's not all the chairs
    Though we'd complain if they weren't there

    Is it the fire that burns so bright
    At which we stare with child's delight?
    And my, it is a warming fire!
    It warms the bones, this wintery Shire

    Maybe its the tales all told
    That bring us in from out the cold
    Or is it all the lovely tunes
    Whose melodies can fill the room

    But wait, I really have to say
    It's not the music that is played
    And even with the story chair
    You can't tell tales with no-one there

    You need a singer for a song
    And then some folk to dance along
    What makes this Inn the place to be
    Is all the lovely company!

    I'm sure you all agree it's true
    What makes this place is you! And you!
    We hobbit folk should feel so proud
    Just remember, no bagpipes allowed!

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    *shivers at the thought of turnip juice*

    Anyways, it is time ter announce this for hobbits all over:

    GDF/Hobbit End of Year party at the Plough and Stars!

    It is Green Dragon Friday! But in Brockenborings! And with an end of year theme!

    Date: December Friday 30
    Time: 8:00PM GMT/3:00PM servertime
    Location: Plough and Stars inn, Brockenborings

    Barmy currently keeps the Green Dragon closed to clean up after the GDF yule party, so this coming Friday we'll be at the Plough and Stars in Brockenborings instead! And there are no better hobbits to greet the new year with than yer fellow Brockenborians!

    So come greet the new year and the coming brighter days with us! Bring a tale, a song, a poem, a riddle or something similar, if yer have fireworks that's grand too (fer use outside), and we will have us a party worth remembering!

    OOC details:

    Same as the regular GDF, this is a hobbit RP event. As usual, we request that longshanks respect the hobbit-oriented nature of the event, basically by not showing up. Do roll up a hobbit instead, though, it is marvellous fun! General guidelines are here

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    This looks like real fun. I enjoyed RP Events, especially most with hobbits before on the german RP server, but however not in English yet. Just came here with some international friends.

    As I've read the first post, I see this is for hobbits only, and an exception for dwarves. But what if, lets say, a group of 4 - 6 dwarves comes a long. Would that ruin something or would you very welcome it. Saw on some pages before that 1 or 2 dwarves joined and were welcomed. Not that you would feel uncomfortable if suddenly the tavern is full of dwarves.

    We are not sure if we turn up though, but we would be interested at all. Just wanted to ask.

    greetings

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    Dwarves have always been welcomed. It's not just for hobbits at all. When I began this event way back whenever it was, I fully hoped that Dwarves would show up, I mean they look great there smoking their pipes and showing off their beards. Travelling Dwarves, hobbits and hobbit residents was my vision. It's just the Elves and the race of men that literally don't fit in with it all, so it is encouraged they roll a hobbit/dwarf for the night, thus getting more RP as a result.

    Not that i'm in charge anymore! But i'm sure the event is run exactly as it always was.

    I'll get back to Star Wars now 0_^ Have fun! And all the best to the hobbits of Green Dragon.

    As it's moving to the Plough and Stars this week as the Green Dragon is being refurbished.... Not that we ever really notice you mind? - It might be a little crowded, so if ye keep to the back and mind the little folk? Much welcomed

    Had the pleasure of attending tonight, thouroughly enjoyed it and felt most welcome (Even as a Dwarf).
    I hope to attend these more often, and i should expect you'll be seeing more of me and perhaps those of my kin.

    Thanks!

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    The Lonely Mountain Minstrels were present as well. I think the hobbits were quite surprised when we started playing music and even one of us danced.
    We also drank a lot and went loud, but well we're dwarves.
    Was a lot of fun!

    Greetings,
    Miworin.

    And grand it was ter have ye with us Master Miworin - more so once yer'd stopped shouting and bashing inter folk dancing an scaring poor wee Yllisa. Dwarves ye may be, but there were no need fer that at the start.

    Re: [EVENT] Green Dragon Friday

    Thank yer all who came! (minus the one griefer, but less said about that the better *smiles*) I hope yer enjoyed the party! It was quite grand and lively!

    Some highlights from the night:
    - Four band performances, plus many solo musicians
    - Simbo's new year's poem
    - A merry group of travelling dwarves, who played tunes that got the hobbits dancing
    - Much toasting of friends and wishes fer a happy new year
    - Fireworks

    A warm thank yer to those who have posted pictures from the night! A few more pictures, plus one of the song lyrics, can be found here.

    The coming Friday we'll be back at the Green Dragon in Bywater, as per usual. In the meantime, a happy new year everyone, strangers and friends, both present and absent!

    The year nears its end, so I sit back and sigh
    When thinking of old friends no longer nearby
    The dear ones who left us to go out of bounds
    You long for their voices but can't hear a sound
    You hope that someday they'll return to our fold
    With stories that tell us of silver and gold
    But what most of all you can hope for tonight
    Is joyful good memories of past times so bright

    Well into the new year, the daylight returns
    The land slowly wakes from its slumbering turn
    The days all get warmer as we enter spring
    And soon comes the day when the birds start to sing
    They sing of old friends who'll return to our fold
    With stories that tell us of silver and gold
    And we can all hope that they come here tonight
    With joyful good memories and laughter so bright
    With joyful good memories and laughter so bright

    I had a wonderful time. I wish I could attend more often, but I am from your former colony of Massachusettes and my timezone does not mesh. I was on vacation so was able to attend... I hope to be able to more in the new year.
