    Do you hear what I hear? Yes, it is the lure of Friday calling! And the Green Dragon is open as usual for the weekly hobbit inn night!

    The doors open for hobbits and visiting dwarves at 8PM UK (3PM servertime). Be welcome!

    As always, GDF is an event for and by hobbits. While a few travelling dwarves are always welcome, we kindly ask that men and elves don't attend the event, since they were a rare sight in the Shire of the books. We'd rather keep this as a hobbit event, where hobbits can be themselves and act naturally, without being scolded (or even stepped on) by the big folk. Thanks!

    Thanks!

    This coming Friday will be a regular GDF. However, the regular yule parties are coming up:

    The Green Dragon Friday yule party will be held Friday December 26th.
    The new years party will be held at the Plough and Stars in Brockenborings, Friday January 2nd.

    Both events start 8PM UK (3PM servertime). While them have a yule and new years theme respectively, this will be quite similar to a usual Green Dragon Friday. So remember, these are hobbit events, with travelling dwarves welcome.

    This Friday will have 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 26th, 2014
    Time: 8PM UK (3PM servertime)
    Location: Green Dragon inn, Bywater

    Event details:

    Yule is an important celebration for hobbits. 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!

    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!

    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 event, with traveling dwarves welcome.

    If yer know yer have some entertainment to offer the crowds (yule themed things especially welcome), 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.

    Merry yule everyone!

    It is Green Dragon Friday! But in Brockenborings! And with a new years theme! Yay!

    Date: January 2nd, 2015
    Time: 8PM UK (3PM servertime)
    Location: Plough and Stars inn, Brockenborings

    Event details:

    Barmy keeps the Green Dragon closed to clean up after the GDF yule party, so this Friday we’ll be at the Plough and Stars in Brockenboring for the new years party! And there are no better hobbits to greet the new year with than yer fellow Brockenborians! After all, we usually do so!

    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 Green Dragon Friday, this is a hobbit RP event, with dwarves welcome! As usual, we request that the big folk respect the hobbit-oriented nature of the event and not attend. Do roll up a hobbit instead, though, it is marvellous fun!

    After the yule and new years celebrations, things are back to normal at the Green Dragon! Which means that the local hobbits can meet for the usual Green Dragon Friday inn night from 8PM UK time (3PM servertime) tonight! Expect songs, dance, poetry, news, gossip, drinking, riddles, socializing, and other things!

    Some tips about the event:

    GDF can sometimes be relaxed and slow, but at other times things get very busy. If you are a first-time visitor, it is a perfectly natural and valid approach to stay in a corner to observe things a little, to get an overview of the rhythm of the event. Still, the locals are a friendly and sociable lot, so don't be shy to join the dancing, drinking and conversations!

    The typical schedule of any GDF night is as follows:
    - Before 8PM UK: Hobbits gather at the inn, some chat by the bar, others play music by the entertainment fireplace.
    - Ca 8PM: The host starts the night by the entertainment fireplace, typically with some songs and welcoming words. Now is a good time to sign up if you have entertainment to offer.
    - From ca 0815PM: The floor is opened for signed-up entertainers. Dancing, drinking, chatting etc. last through the night.
    - Ca 0845-0900PM: The news slot, where news of local Shire events and hobbit happenings are introduced (events on Laurelin only). Afterwards, entertainment continues.
    - Ca 10PM: The inn night closes, usually with the regular closing number, "Home Sweet Home"
    - After 10PM: Fireworks outside the Green Dragon. Farewells. Slow-travelling ride (or walk) towards the Shire homesteads

    Deviations from this schedule may occur, though!

    If you would like to offer some entertainment for the crowd (please do!), we run a sign-up system on the night to keep things progressing smoothly. To sign up, please send a /tell to the hobbit acting as the host. Sometimes, there are more sign-ups than there is time for in the regular two hours the event lasts. If so and there is no time for you, don't despair! There is always the opportunity next Friday! Also, everyone is advised to try keep their performance as short and smooth as possible: Bands typically play ca 3 songs, stories shouldn't really last longer than 10 minutes effective time etc. You'll get the hang of it!

    In addition to the entertainment, it is grand if the event doesn't just turn into a "play music and dance" event. Please chat about the weather, the latest mistakes made by the mayor, upcoming parties, the good crops or anything else that would be natural for a hobbit in the Shire. This keeps the roleplaying going, and brings spice and life to the event.

    As always, GDF is an event for and by hobbits. While a few travelling dwarves are always welcome, we kindly ask that men and elves don't attend the event, since they were a rare sight in the Shire of the books.

    I'm so jealous you guys are still having so much fun! Really awesome this event has been going so long and I wish I could have been more of a part of it. My heart is in this event and now I'm on the outside looking in Big love to you all. I have a family now and another baby on the way by the way (maybe i'll call him Halfast Or Halfpast, or Owfast etc.. ) and no time at all for this game which for a good three years was MY LIFE. If it all goes wrong in the real world I'll be back here in a heartbeat. xxxx


    Big love to you all. Hobbits and Longshanks, but in particular Hobbits. This event is nearly 7 years old in May right?

    And aye, there should be a 7-year anniversary party or two in Early-to-Mid May!

    Looks like it is Friday again! One might think this was a recurring thing by now!

    Which means that the Green Dragon is open as usual tonight. The doors open for hobbits and visiting dwarves at 8PM UK (3PM servertime). Be welcome!

    As always, GDF is an event for and by hobbits. While a few travelling dwarves are always welcome, we kindly ask that men and elves don't attend the event, since they were a rare sight in the Shire of the books. We'd rather keep this as a hobbit event, where hobbits can be themselves and act naturally, without being scolded (or even stepped on) by the big folk. Thanks!

    Tip of the day:

    The local hobbits love performers of various kinds; Musicians, poets, riddle-tellers or similar. To sign up, just send a tell to the hobbit in charge of the proceedings, and he or she will do his/her best to find a good slot for yer.

    Yay Friday! Highday! Hobbit day of celebration!

    And the Green Dragon in Bywater opens its doors as usual, 8PM UK time (3PM servertime), for hobbits and travelling dwarves. Welcome!

    As always, GDF is an event for and by hobbits. While a few travelling dwarves are always welcome, we kindly ask that men and elves don't attend the event, since they were a rare sight in the Shire of the books. We'd rather keep this as a hobbit event, where hobbits can be themselves and act naturally, without being scolded (or even stepped on) by the big folk. Thanks!

    Tip of the day:

    GDF always strives to be a somewhat lore-conforming hobbit inn night. Players there generally roleplay Shire hobbits meeting up for a night at the inn after a long work week, and we ask that your chat and actions reflect this. News discussed should typically be about hobbit goings-on in the Shire (and on Laurelin, not on other servers).

    Obviously, this also means that we follow the Laurelin LOTRO RP guidelines:
    https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...les-and-Policy

    Short version:
    - The purpose of the RP servers is (among others) to give players the opportunity to be deeply immersed within the lore of The Lord of the Rings.
    - Player names should be within the spirit of The Lord of the Rings, inspired by and reflecting the lore (however, don't make similar names to the major characters).
    - Be tolerant over the roleplaying choices of others, and don't use roleplaying as a tool to harrass other players.
    - Player chat, especially /say and emotes, should be in-character and abide by the lore of The Lord of the Rings.

    Using the ((double brackets for OOC chat)) is generally unfortunate, since all you do is call attention to the fact that you knowingly break the server guidelines. Generally we use these to provide specific times ((UK time, servertime etc.)) or links to the local newspaper and event listings, but not for anything else.

    Don't worry, though! The hobbits at the Dragon are a friendly lot, and no-one is likely to scold you over simple mistakes *smiles*

    Friday! Two things of note:

    1) Remember that the US switched to Daylight Saving Time last Sunday, while the EU hasn't yet. Which means that the Dragon opens at 8PM UK as usual, but that this means 4PM servertime the coming three weeks (Until March 29th)

    2) Tonight is Lone Bards Night at the Green Dragon!

    What is Lone Bards Night? First of all, this will be part of Green Dragon Friday, the long-lasting weekly hobbit gathering on the Laurelin server. This is where hobbit roleplayers on Laurelin meet up for a night at the inn on Fridays, to relax and enjoy themselves after a long week.

    Lone Bards Night is essentially “Green Dragon Friday unplugged”. This will mostly be Green Dragon Friday as usual, but with one big exception: We won’t allow bands to play. Instead, we ask for solo or duo-based entertainment:
    • Music (solo or duo)
    • Poems
    • Short stories
    • Riddles or rhymes
    • Short duo plays
    • Or similar. Please be creative!

    To allow for as many performances as possible, please do not plan with too much time (typically, 3 songs, max 10-minute stories etc). Short and sweet is good!

    In particular, we encourage new hobbit entertainers to come perform! While there are many veterans around whose performances are always welcome, at the Green Dragon we have a particular fondness for first-time (and even second- or third-time) performers. I am sure you’ll find us to be a friendly and appreciative crowd, so please don’t be shy!

    Lastly, please remember to keep your performance somewhat hobbity lore-relevant. Green Dragon Friday is about roleplaying hobbits in the Shire, and their traits and interests should be a good guide for your performance as well. Don’t worry too much, though, we certainly welcome inexperienced roleplayers too!

    To sign up, just show up at the Green Dragon on Friday March 13th! When the night kicks off, the host will ask for entertainers to sign up. This is done by sending a /tell to the host, where you say what you would like to do. The host will then open up for the different performers during the of the night.

    Welcome hobbits!

    Friday! Highday! Hobbit party day!

    The doors to the Green Dragon opens as usual, 8PM UK time tonight. And since the EU is now also on Daylight Saving time, this means we're back to the usual 3PM servertime too.

    Welcome hobbits!

    Please note:
    Green Dragon Friday is a roleplaying 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 seven years now). Men were a rare sight in the Shire inns, and most local hobbits in Bywater had never laid eyes upon an elf. Whenever a tall visitor enters the inn, it changes the dynamic of the event, and it progressively turns less hobbit-oriented. And that makes us somewhat sad.

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

    It is Friday night! And since every Friday is a Green Dragon Friday, Barmy will open his inn to hobbits and visiting dwarves as usual at 8PM UK/BST (3PM servertime). Be welcome!

    Babble - a plugin to combat emote spam

    Some hobbits have over the years complained over the noise and chatter at the Dragon, saying they are unable to cope with all that is happening. We just may have something to aid yer! Simbo has been busy making earmuffs for yer, so yer should be able to survive the goings-on there.

    Or rather, he has made a plugin called Babble, which filters away unneccesary emote texts from your chat window, for instance clap, cheer, dance and similar. So from now on, the text in your chat window won't flash by so fast that you can't see the good stuff.

    You can get the plugin and read more about it on the Biscuity Burrow.

    A hobbit event

    As usual, please note that Green Dragon Friday is an event for and by hobbits, with dwarven visitors welcome. For lore reasons, we ask that men and elves stay away from the inn these two hours (however, should you have quests inside the inn, you should of course run in and finish those).

    The Green Dragon is open as usual tonight, for hobbits from all across the Shire (and some even beyond). The doors open at 8PM UK/BST (3PM servertime). Be welcome!

    Expect gossip, lots of music and dancing, (un)healthy samplings of Barmy's brews, poetry, tales, riddles and other things. And most certainly - the very latest in Shire news! Not to mention the usual fireworks display outside after the inn closes. Oh, did I mention it? Dang...

    Anyways! Welcome oldtimers and first-time visitors alike!

    Hi, hoping to run a hobbit on the server to partake in this tonight before i decide to transition to the server permanently, thing is I might not manage to get a character out of the intro before 8 because I have a little one who wont actually settle in bed til after 7pm.

    fantastic thank you a little nervous, trying to RP for the first time

    I am sure all will go well!

    The Dragon can sometimes be a bit busy on Friday nights, with a lot of visitors chatting and dancing and generally being jolly. It is perfectly OK to just come in and observe things quietly, if yer like. Else, simple things like "Hello" and "I am visiting for the first time" is a good way to start, should you want to start interacting with others.

    One tip (if you haven't already) is to enable chat bubbles in your ui settings, that'll help you see who speaks in /say.
