    FAQ.....

    How to find the events.......

    An open fellowship will be provided to provide people with a means to be summoned to the event, and to join any “layer” that generates due to the crowd. Members of Sons of Numenor will be in the Regional chat channel to assist in Rivendell.

    I am coming from another server, or I am rolling a new Alt character, how do I make it to the event?

    Easy! Our formation ride from the Golden Perch pub in The Shire, makes way through Bree, the Lone Lands, and the Troll Shaws! Join us along the way for safe travel! If you are high enough a level, hunters and captains can also summon!

    When will the show start?
    The music will begin at 10, regardless. The fireworks look best at night, and we will start the show no earlier than 10 p.m. EST, but only at the start of the nearest Night Cycle to that time. However we know that the show will end by 12 a.m. EST, come what may.

    How long will the fireworks show last......
    The show is expected to last as long as 45 minutes.

    Can I play music?
    There will be an open-mic "afterparty" in the Hall of Fire. All are welcome to take a number and play in-turn!

    Can I fire my own fireworks?

    We would appreciate it, for this event, if you NOT join us on the “rock.” Please mark your calendars for the annual "October Surprise" party in Thorins hall, which we welcome all to fire away with glee!

    Just a reminder. No RSVP is required, but I encourage that by in-game mail or PM here on the site.

    We will have people gathering on both sides of the Brandywine to cover the major zones. Look for an Open Fellowship to help summon and gather you to us. Otherwise, look to meet at the Golden Perch and look for the members of Sons of Numenor who will be organizing the escorted ride.

    Im not sure if I can join this even, but i have an idea. How about "role-play" fellowship with a hobbit, 12 dwarves and 1 man LM, dress as much like Bilbo's company as possible, with Gandalf wearing grey robe, grey hat, grey cloak, grey beard... The company would walk to Rivendell, play their role, with a bunches of audiences follow.

    Well if they can gather at the Perch on Sunday, we'll be happy to escort them. We do run at full gallop from the Forsaken Inn, hunters and captains will port/summon any lowbies directly to Rivendell from there to avoid casualties.

    Unashamed bump from another participant (yay fireworks!!!) - looking forward to an epic evening of fun!
    Evening draws nigh for the Eldar; and yet, there is much work yet to be done before retiring!

    Just some quick shares:

    Our group-up at the Forsaken Inn



    Early in the fireworks show:



    Photos hardly convey the event. Thanks to all who were there and participated. A full detailing will come this week as soon as I recover my hearing. But I can say we fired over 7000 fireworks at least, still doing a ammo count tonight. I will also link the two live streams that were there and special guests we had with us.
