    Presenting the 6th Annual Great Elven Ball




    It all started with a naive attempt to dedicate a Ball to the elven roleplayers several years ago. An event to set aside all disagreements and be united in a lighthearted dancing event, also a celebration for our kin anniversary. Without much expectation we gave it a go...

    Some of you might remember the First Grand Elven Ball back in November 2008 :




    It was a nice event! One of the first of its kind. You did all honor us by joining to our humble event in such numbers and as a result, we made it an annual event next year, properly titled as The 2nd Annual Grand Elven Ball, in October 2009 as many of you remember :

    Second event is still considered to be the best in the kinship in the terms of spontaneousness, improvisation and the quality of music. The attendance were greater than the first and overwhelming for us. We had but no option to work harder for the 3rd, October 2010 :

    Third event in my opinion was very rich in artistic taste. Since we were more experienced in such events, we knew a bit better what the audience were capable of if directed properly in a synchronized dancing event. Costumes, quality of dancing, roleplaying and the general sense of a ''Ball'' was much more genuine than the first two. We had to work harder to surpass the Third Ball.

    Then in 2011 we have done the fourth. The invitation thread can still be found in forums here :

    With the attendance of many famous elven houses and individuals of the Laurelin Elven community in Nov 2011. The circle dance was particularly nice in that one :

    The last of the series, The Fifth Great Elven Ball took place two years go and it’s the most recent. Landroval-Laurelin dual server band Andunie rocked at this event. The musical quality has been elevated to such a level that few would dare to reach that high. The dances were not any lesser than the music either :

    And now.... The show must go on.






    The Sixth Annual Grand Elven Ball awaits you. Please as you have done kindly in the last five years, consider that this event is aimed to be an elven themed event and every non-elf you bring would make it seem less elven. If you are not particularly invited with your Dunedain, Men, Your Dwarves or Hobbits and if you have a proper elven alt, it would be very helpful to attend with them instead of your mighty humans, dwarf lords or hobbitses. Still its up to you! (if you want to explain your presence to Veryacano at the gate and to his cold Hammerites)

    We do kindly await your arrival and yours at the event. Some of you have received in game Invitations and even in some cases, Personally inviting Order of Harp Envoys, and some have not. To clarify things, we want to declare that this is still and open event with some racial limitations and any elf who wish to come to see the biggest and largest synchronised dancing display won't be turned down.

    This year we consider that the event actually is taking place in Rivendell indoors despite the Falathlorn adress, so lets all pretend that our kinhall is a venue somewhere in the valley. This is due to a measure towards containing possible griefing attempts. In a real venue in Rivendell we have no buttons to contain a bad situation, and Falathlorn is a bridge too far. So no need to perform a 2 week long pilgrimage to dance in character. If you are in Rivendell come! If not, come again!

    See you all there!

    Thanks all for coming!

    It was a lovely show, never seen such synchronized dances with so much attendance before. The last /dance_man was extraordinary to me with four rows and six lines.

    Huge thanks to :

    Amorey & The Hobbit Heart - Simbo - Peppy - Tahitoa for nice music and their attendance, it really made a difference.
    Eliriael, the dancemaster for precise type and locationing, also very cool timing.
    Catering team, thanks for wine selection and good food. Don't worry about leftover pile. None shall be wasted!
    Hammer security, thanks for not letting Beornings in disguised as LM pets.
    Arrow PR team, for good show!

    and of course those who attended! My thanks to Lord Curugirion and Loth-i Lonnath, Lady Elisbeth, Lord Khalis and the Warband of Imladris for their support and numerous other elves from Laurelin!

    Next year we expect you to the SEVENTH!
