Remember! All players, all levels past the intro & all account types can travel to Minas Tirith when paying a Mithril Coin to the South Bree Stable Master.


The Blue Theatre is on the 4th or Players Tier in Minas Tirith.  You will find our venue if you head South then East from the Stable. (There is a vault on the Third tier)

MT BarThere are two free bars just inside the theater and plenty of seating both in and around the auditorium, so much scope for any new or experienced role-player.

This is our first event in The Blue Theatre, Minas Tirith. It would be wise to assume that we may need a little more time to accomodate those with connection problems.

I am optimistic that the event will go without too many problems and look forward to seeing you all there tomorrow.

The Best Seats in The Blue Theatre

I would like to share with you all this adapted screenshot. It shows the best spots for hearing the music and seeing the say bubbles. It’s a good idea to approach the stage before the show to avoid the /say bug. Please assume if you cross the line between the carpets where my good Dwarf Zedrock stands you may have to repeat the approach to the stage and back movent to activate the speech bubbles again.

Sadly the sound quality is not so good in most of the seating provided, this is a shame! In the seats on the upper tier only those closest to the stage will be able to see lyrics and hear the music to any reasonable standard.

Remember I will be posting a public poll on for everyone to have a say in deciding the winner of The People’s Choice Award.
