Time: 3pm EST/8pm GMT
Location: The Hall of Fire, Last Homely House, Rivendell
Description: This is a role play event inspired by the times of mirth and joy the Elves had as we read in Many Meetings from The Lord of the Rings and in The Cottage of Lost Play from The History of Middle-earth. And though other races (dwarves or men in small numbers, driven by a reasonable purpose which brings them to the Valley at long whiles) are not turned away but welcomed as guests in the Last Homely House, this is first and foremost an Elf-event. So come -both learned and beginners- (from all servers) for a good time, in hope that we may unite the Elf-role players in LotRO, once a week and every week; and evoke a wondrous elvish environment for all of us to immerse in, enjoy and marvel at; and build IC friendships which may last for countless days.

The Shire to Fornost: A hobbit historical field trip, will run from March 3rd-5th on the Laurelin server. Join the Grand Order each day at 2:30pm EST/7:30pm GMT for the journey. It will start at Plough and Stars in Brockenboring on the 3rd with a farewell party (this will take the place of the usual Green Dragon Friday). On March 4th the journey to Fornost will commence with a walk from the Brockenborings stable through Evendim to Fornost. There will be food breaks and lore tales along the way. The 5th is the tales day, where the group will spend time looking around Fornost and sharing stories. Everyone is expected to follow the Laurelin RP policy, with no OOC conversation in the /say channel. Low level characters are very welcome. While this is a hobbit-themed event, others can join in on Saturday and Sunday should they have a particular interest in hobbitness.
