  1. [Landroval] WINTERstock is coming ...

    And now for a Long-Expected Announcement! There is to be an Event of Special Magnificence! Perhaps you have already heard the rumors?

    Perhaps you have heard of another special event ... Weatherstock? Well, this event isn't going to be like that one at all. Weatherstock is still six months away, anyway.

    This event will be held this coming January, when it is snowy. It will be held over the weekend of January 17th through the 20th on the Landroval server, to be precise. Our Dwarven hosts would want me to be precise about that. Yes, yes, Dwarven hosts ... the event will be held at wintry Thorin's Gate!

    There shall be music!
    There shall be ale!
    And there shall be pie ... of course!
    And there shall be snow!
    Did I mention music?
    Did I mention the name of the event?

    Silly me ... Can someone give me a drum-roll, please?

    This Event of Special Magnificence ... is entitled ... The *WINTERSTOCK* Music Festival! Hosted by the Lonely Mountain Band.


    With performances by ...

    The Andune Ensemble
    Animal House
    Bara Bahau
    Bards Beers and LongBeards
    Bright Star
    Les Beaux Chapeaux
    The Breakfast Club
    Les Chantefables
    The Chosen Few
    Hobbiton Philharmonic
    Die Meisterbarden von Bree
    Mornie Alantie
    Muckin Fuddle
    No Whole Bard
    Old Winyards
    The Remediators
    A Rock and a Hard Place
    Runic Knights Orchestra
    The Shades
    The Songburrow Strollers
    The Starlight Orchestra
    Under The Sunlit Sky

    Please note that performing bands are subject to change. Times/Days to be announced. Also, unlike Weatherstock, there will be *no* band competitions during this event ... just a weekend chock full of great music!

    So, join us the weekend of January 17-20 for *WINTERSTOCK*! Winterstock will be held on the frozen pond next to the Silver Deep Mine at Thorin's Gate. Please remember to mark your calendars! And you might want to pack some warmer clothing, too.

    How bad do you expect the lag to be? I would love to role a low level dwarf and join you guys if the lag forecast isn't horrible.

    That's a very good question and honestly - we don't know. This is the first Winterstock event we are running so we don't know yet whether it will be successful or not. Or as successful as Weatherstock or even more successful than Weatherstock because the bands can play longer.

    I'd suggest you just come and visit us and see if it's ok for you. Everything else is guessing.


    One tip to make it more likely that the event will run smooth for you would be to turn down graphics quite some so your machine can render the game good enough.

    I know how to take the proper precautions, but it sometimes doesn't matter if there are a lot of people and the spot can't hold the load.

  10. We are very happy to announce that the band The Remediators will play for Winterstock on Monday the 20th at 8pm /servertime !

    That makes for a lineup of 19 bands now!

  11. And another announcement: We got one more band to play on Saturday. Winterstock welcomes "Under The Sunlit Sky" to the lineup. They will play on Saturday between 5pm and 6pm.

    Vending announces a fresh supply of fine quality and even exotic pipeweed stock availability for the event. Our discerning Hobbit team has selected the very best of winter ales to keep yer bones warm during this multiday concert. If any one in the crowd falls through the ice we will have a special brew to help thaw you out (emergency only).

    Vending will be wearing the traditional vending garb;

    Ooh, sounds like fun! I hope I don't forget. I can get my wee Landroval toon out and join in the fun.

    I really should spend more time on her... :/

    Weatherstock is also hosted by the Lonely Mountain Band, right? What are your recruiting prereqs? Weatherstock intrigued me so much that I created a toon on Landroval a few months ago and am currently kinless. I'd like to find my Landroval minstrel a good home.

    Thanks! I've read the charter and whatnot and just finished the application.

    Do you know if LMB tends to deny members who may not be extremely active? As my sig suggests, I do also run my own kin on another server. :/ I can't neglect my duties over there, but still want to find a good home for my minstrel on Landroval.

    Today is the final day of Winterstock! Be sure to swing by and join in the fun! On that note, we've had an update to the schedule of events. In addition to the previously advertized bands, we'll also be having Andunie playing for us at 2 PM EST (server time)! Thanks Andunie!

    Greetings!

    I will post a more detailed article tomorrow, but for now...

    Congratulations to:
    * Kikilaa for winning the Blue Mountain Classic horse race! Hoboin came in second place while Gonda finished third.
    * Skoch for earning the most votes in the mounted fashion contest! Kyrian won second and Ironroses took third prize, with an honorable mention for Tearna.
    * Silamiriel for scoring the most points in the trivia contest! Alfiryn scored second and Khalawyn won third. Tasarin, Shakespearicles and Baldigar also demonstrated quite a bit of Lord of the Rings knowledge.
    * Belathriel won the wager and a Steed of the First Marshall after 20 people bet on Kikilaa to win.

    Thanks to our volunteers and judges -- Valtharon, Brenthiel, Floradine, Alesel, Mithrilfist, Brendoran and Tasarin!
    Many thanks to our band members -- Mirinaeth, Galadhlin, Codella Mosstoes, and Bottomless Brandyflask!
    Special thanks to Sapience for providing the Turbine Point prizes!

    Thank you to the audience. It was wonderful to see you all at the events. Our next race is the Shadowfax Sprint, scheduled for February 22 at 2:30pm EST/servertime. Happy adventuring and we hope to see you at the races!
