On Saturday Landroval will be asked to Hunt the Hobbit.  The burglar Navalpar will hide somewhere in the Glirgar neighborhoood of the Falathorn homesteads.  Any players who find the hobbit and jump in front of him will receive prizes.  The game begins at 2pm EDT.


All events are listed in Eastern Daylight Time (-4 GMT)/server time, but an additional time zone is listed for EU server events.  You may add events or post corrections in the comments section, but the fastest and best way to get it on this page is to submit a form.  I’m always open to feedback and suggestions, both here and through the submissions form, so let me know if there’s something we should feature.  Thanks for reading!

Blue Bock Beer will flow as well!

Looking back:

Longtime Arkenstone player Hundin passed away last weekend, and on Wednesday his friends gathered to celebrate his life.  A lover of fishing and motorcycle riding outside of LOTRO, the in-game ceremony took the form of a memorial ride from Nar’s Peak to the Fishing Hole, culminating in a shared cast and lifted hope tokens.
