I should clarify that I didn't mind the comment about going back to the Pony. I just heeded it because I didn't want to disrupt things further. Perhaps one day I'll roll a hobbit and attend another Green Dragon event, because you're all the gem of the server.
And I also agree that I've never felt that hobbits are out of place in the events of Bree, but I've also seen elves give up their mystique to lord it up among the primitives that is comparable to an earlier comment about humans coming to stare at the "circus freaks." I'm not completely complaining as I believe the more the merrier, but I only mean I can relate.
And I agree that the lore and to some extent immersion (I say "to some degree" because I've seen in the past at other online rpg's people expect much more out of people than they should for the sake of their immersion. To me I consider rp more of collective storytelling than personal immersion, which is to say I'm willing to bend my character, even if it's unfair to me to some extent, to help people tell interesting stories. If one is too focused on immersion they can often forget the bigger picture. I gmed at uo shards and Illarion.org so I may have just developed this philosophy as a tool of facilitating play as a gm.) is important. The last two posters have been very kind and welcoming so don't think this is a criticism to you two (or even the vast majority of players here) but some people use lore as a hammer to bash people's heads in with rather than as a tool for building rp.
In any case, I've focused far too much on the negative in this post. Most of you are fabulous and the music and poems are wonderful. I am only replying to the earlier comments about how the event was "ruined" and I can even understand the dismay of those posters, which is why I don't plan to go back again, because even if I go as a guest of a hobbit and try to observe and be subtle, I'm only adding to the crowd of people too tall to jump to the Bywater Jumping Song without hitting their heads. =)
Maybe someday to quell the curiosity of the tall folk there could be a hobbit expedition into Bree so we can hear all those great songs and poems and hop along with our hobbit friends.
