    The Great Chicken Run, Sunday 25th October, with prizes!

    EDIT: Please note that the event is happening on Sunday 25th October, not Sunday 18th October, as the original link and title states! Apologies for the confusion!

    Hi everyone!

    Following the success of our server event last December...

    ...the Lost Realm of Imladris have decided to host another kin event, which will take place on Sunday, 25th October.

    The kin event will comprise of a great chicken run, far surpassing any that have yet been seen in the game (as far as we could check from a quick Google, and a search through the LOTRO forums!) - using the glorious powers of the Free Ranging chicken, we will be escorting a brave brace of chickens all the way from Sandson's Farm to the Culverts of Osgiliath.

    Before you cry 'that's not possible!', we have already taken a chicken all the way to Tarlang's Crown, so we know that the Paths of the Dead can be passed, and that our chickens can last the distance - but what we need to make the event a success is YOU! Large numbers of kinnies will hopefully be in attendance, both as chickens and escorts, but we would love you to join us, either as a chicken, or as a Protector of Poultry (which definitely should be made into a title after this event... please Frelorn? ) on this epic journey.

    Last year, Turbine very generously gave us some TP codes to hand out to winners of our previous event, and hopefully this year will be the same, but in addition to these TP prizes, officers of the kin will also be clubbing together to see that some very shiny items end up in your inventories, if you dare to run the fowl and furious course on a defenceless critter, in addition to prizes for those who help to escort them on their travels.

    Overall, we hope that this will be a really fun event for our kin and the server, for both the new arrivals and the old faces - while we wait for Minas Tirith to be released, what better way is there to spend your time than running from one end of the map to the other, killing anything that moves, or cowering in terror as the chickens approach the danger spots (particularly any wights!) across Middle Earth?

    Regarding practical details, the event will start at 7PM GMT (not BST, as the clocks go back that morning!), so 8PM CET (see your internet browser for other timings if you live elsewhere ), and will probably run for approximately 3 hours - you're welcome to stay for the entire event, or drop in and out as required, but the prize giving will be at the end, so make sure to stick around for that if you can (if you have to leave earlier, but you've been running as a chicken, we'll see what we can sort out).

    If you're not aware of the Free Range quest, you get it from completing a series of quests from Sandson's Farm in the Shire, just to the north of Michel Delving, and east of Little Delving, where there are a series of chicken quests which need to be completed to gain access to the golden 8 hour critter. However, if that seems like too much work, we will need as many escorts as possible, and the more people that we have to join in the marathon across Middle Earth, the better!

    For any further information, please either contact the organiser, Bellrond, by mail in game, or get in touch with me here in the forums. We hope to see as many of you as possible there (either as chickens, or as your rather more common characters!), and I look forward to greeting both old and new faces on Sunday 25th October!

    Well must say had a blast of an evening.

    8 made it to the culverts and we had a few who only had a 2.5h chicken and they made it to Dol Amroth.

    Thank you to all who participated, was good to have alot of chickens and protectors.

    Here is the screenshot of the chickens at the end of the evening.
