    My favourite part of the Festival? The rewards, of course! There're some very nice housing items, pets, and warsteed outfits. The new cosmetic is pretty, too.

    Favorite part of Harvestmath

    So far, as this is my first year of playing LOTRO, I would have to say its the Bingo Boffin festival quest. The twist of having to wait until next year to learn the meaning of the cryptic prophecy, is especially spooky.
    I also liked that in the Boffin children's campfire stories, the final story (from the book we fetched) seems to be based on The Red Shoes by Hans Christian Anderson. This seems to hint playfully that the original folk tale from which Anderson derived his story is actually based on some ancient story passed down in the "Chill ______" tome we retrieved from the Great Smials library for Bingo.
    It would be so much fun if we could have more stories with Bingo and the Boffins in the future. There is a wealth of folktales they could draw from. One of my favorites is a Russian folktale called The Soldier and Death. its retold in English by Arthur Ransome and is also inspired by Godfather Death. A soldier returns home after 20 years of war, with three biscuits in his knapsack. On his way he meets three beggars to whom he gives the biscuits; in return one gives him a ruby whistle, one the jolliest dance, and the final man, who gets the last biscuit despite the soldier being hungry himself, in return gives him a pack of magic playing cards and a musty sack that has the power to trap anything ordered into it.
    In fact, this story has all the elements of a great quest, complete with the objectives already written.
    Jim Henson included the story in his production The Storyteller. You can see part of the story, (the part where he uses the magic cards and the magic sack to outsmart and trap evil spirits) on youtube here:

    I stopped doing festivals a few years ago because they were so repetitive. It's hard to pick a favorite part of something I haven't done in years.

    My favorite part of the festival is the Haunted Burrow. I specially like the way in which players get to discover it.

    I haven't done the festival, but I do like the Bingo quests. Still busy with the original ones, though.

    The favorite thing I like to do with festival quests that ask me to go to the party tree?
    Accept, finish and get the xp, then sell the map for seven copper.
    Not much, but hey: seven copper is still money :-).

    What is your favorite part of the Harvestmath Festival?

    Obviously that you can get the cowbell. I've got a fever, and the only cure is more cowbell.
