On Nimrodel, after getting one of my gaggle of alts to finish the deed, I decided to run all of the rest (10 total). It took about 5 hours to do it all, counting RL breaks. There is some randomness to which of the remaining 11 hobbits get their story activated. So, there are times when they run back-to-back. If you have a bunch of alts, the best method has been mentioned. Log them in alphabetical order. After getting those done, next hour log them in opposite to the last time. Repeat.

On planet Earth, there is a try.
