Posted: Mon May 01, 2017 3:20 pm Post subject: May news and announcements
We'd like to welcome our April recruits: Anriel, During, Kallimdor, Reniriell, and Seronwulf. A hearty congratulation also goes out to Halialyl and Sinira for their recent promotions to full membership. Please be sure to say hello and welcome to the newest members of the family!
We're introducing a very special new monthly event: Breakfastival Day. Every month we will randomly select a member or officer to serve as our Mayor for the Day. This month's Mayor for a Day is Amrumen/Breve! He has selected Wednesday, May 10th at 8pm. We hope to have as many members attend as possible, but don't worry if you can't make it this month--event times will change every month based on the desires of the Mayor for a Day. We will gather at the small island next to 4 Wending Way in our Greyheight neighbourhood of the Shire homesteads. We start with a little music, some announcements, recognition for our new members, and gifts for the Mayor. Next, we will begin this month's activity: Anniversary Scavenger Hunt runs.
The Shirefest 2017 lineup is nearly complete. We will post a signup sheet for emcees soon. For now, look for more information on the Shirefest details thread and put June 18th-20th on your calendar!
In April we took a "European vacation" to visit our sister kins on Belegaer and Evernight. Our new Belegaer kinhouse at 4 Brookbank Street in the Taterfurrows neighbourhood has a full map collection--go out and get your 20 LOTRO Points! Our next all day drop in event is on May 2nd: A Tale of Two Rivers on Brandywine and Gladden. Find Jancis or Houlihan in Breakfast Club on Gladden and Jancis or Estellaluna in Second Breakfast of Crickhollow on Brandywine. Both kinhouses on these servers also include copies of the deed maps.
Dawning Eclipse will celebrate their 10th anniversary on May 6th. Join them at 9pm EDT in the new Bree Lore Hall for a fashion show competition (categories are high fashion/casual/artistic wear and battle wear). A riddle race will follow. Prizes include 1000 LP for first place, 500 LP for second, and 50 gold for third in each event.
The Tolkien Professor's open course returns to Crickhollow on May 30th at 9:30pm EDT. Check out the Discord server or follow along on their Twitch channel.
Many of us have been working on the anniversary scavenger hunts together with kinmates and allies. We've arranged a few runs via that thread, including Agii, Everbrock, Gamut, and Luventhariel's successful completion of Year 1 and an instance. Please keep putting together fellowships both in game and over the forums, and don't forget about the upcoming runs at the Breakfastival Day!
