So this week we are going on a fishing trip! Please make sure you have done the initial start-up quest for picking up this hobby. I will be posting reminders in Bree-land and Bree-town a few hours before hand to remind everyone. I will also come bearing extra fishing rods for those who show up and don't have them, so long as they already have the hobby skill.
Should be fun!
Looking forward to it! Is the meeting place at the PP as usual?
It was fun to come along---nice to have met a lot of the attendees!
Got a write-up from my character's perspective linked below. I wasn't on top of things and unfortunately didn't grab a screenshot from the front-of-the-Pony gathering, but at least I got a shot or two of the fishing.
Last night I had only just gotten in from work and I thought, "I'll bring the hunter to FTiL this evening, she can get to Bree fast!" Then I got there...
I found no one at the PP or at the Mess Hall, and realized I was probably in a different layer.
I rode out of the city gate and back in, only to get stuck in an eternal loading screen.
After rebooting the game, I found I was still in the wrong layer.
I changed layers once more by leaving and re-entering Bree, this time I got it right!
So that's why Tanithanor was late for her first FTiL. It was rather embarrassing, but the event itself was well worth the effort. I had a fine time even with Mount Icantsee's icon in the corner of my screen.
One thing to avoid that- Send a tell to someone who's at the event, send them a fellow invite, and then click the layer button.You will get transfered to the same layer.
I did enjoy telling the story, but I hope the details didn't gross anyone out too much. I might be doing a write-up, but I've been away from my computer, and haven't had the time to do a full write-up.
Lyros the elf had a much needed respite from the long journey to Bree, and after the fun banquet with everyone, may stick around the area and look into the interesting things going on both in town and nearby in the Chetwood or Barrow-downs. The decision has nothing to do with not wanting to sneak by hulking trolls in the Trollshaws to make it to Rivendell, no sir!
Tonight we heard not one or two, but THREE stories! Wow! That was pretty cool.
As we get more and more players (and newer players) to join us, I encourage everyone to look over this Role-player's Guide Book: A Set of Resources for Role-players that I put together. It has tips on everything from picking character name, to the finer more complicated etiquette of interacting with others.
Well, could i have some char names in case im on a different instance, please?
If you check the FTIL Lorebook Entry, I've got all my characters listed there (in case I end up being able to attend this weekend), as well as instructions for joining the global role playing channel. I know Bolo, Thoronmir, and Fronagon have that channel enabled and will be able to see if you talk in there.
Also, we usually announce in OOC for a time before the event starts and for a few minutes after it starts to make sure everyone has a chance to show up or get a fellow invite to the correct layer
Hello Everyone! I do not have a write-up... (We need more reviewers!) I will probably be there early, but won't be able to stay long. I might be able to bring along my brother, but no guarantees. I did enjoy hearing Kharrn's story and seeing everyone.
Sorry that I only caught the last minute or two of some of you!
This week I have something a bit different planned...
You notice a small piece of paper nailed near the door of the Prancing Pony. It reads...
To Whosoever Enjoys the Drinking of Ales, Smoke of Pipe-weed and Spinning of Tales:
Meet me at the Golden Perch in the town of Stock in the Shire. It is a quaint hobbit pub I have recently come to enjoy and would like to meet any like-minded friends. Bring your stories and your pipe-weed, but don't worry yourself over the ale, the Golden Perch has plenty!
Meet me in the courtyard of the Golden Perch at the Usual Time.
Cithryth, Diplomat of Rohan
I enjoyed what time I was able to spend with you all...when I saw a strobe light show outside my window I decided to call it. And I'm glad I did! After I everything down the hailstones started bouncing off the roof!
SO many people today! It was terribly chaotic the first 10-20 minutes and I was receiving many tells, so I'm sorry if I didn't respond to some people in a timely manner. To be honest I wasn't a fan of how chaotic things were, but eventually things calmed down. I took a few screen shots, that I'll add later.
