Happy new year hobbits! Grand pictures from the party!
And new hobbits are of course warmly welcome! *cheers*. If yer never visited before, it is recommended to have a look at the event guidelines in the first post of this thread. Else, just bring yer hobbit along and join the fun!
After the mad yule rush of parties and events and what have yer not, it's good to get back to normal. So tonight, we're in the Green Dragon as usual, fer our regular weekly hobbit event. Expect songs and dance, news, poetry, riddles and/or anything else our local hobbits are able ter think of.
Bring some entertainment of yer own (it is always grand if people get involved!), or just come to listen and dance and party. If yer want to perform somet, just have a chat with (or send a /tell to) the hobbit who tries to keep it at least halfway organized!
8PM GMT/UK (3PM servertime) in the Green Dragon! Welcome hobbits!
Another Friday, another visit to the Green Dragon, hobbits!
The hobbity inn night is now well on the way to its fifth anniversary (later this spring), which we are sure to celebrate when the time comes. Tonight, though, we'll have a night of the usual! Which means songs, dancing, riddles, poetry, news, gossips and partying.
As always, it is grand if yer bring some entertainment for the crowds (just chat with the hobbit trying to keep control of things to get a slot). However, if yer would rather just relax and enjoy the night, that's possible too!
8PM UK/GMT (3PM servertime) at the Green Dragon in Bywater. Welcome, hobbits and dwarves!
Up and at it, hobbits! The Green Dragon is open again today, since it is Friday!
So from 8PM UK/GMT (3PM servertime) and two hours onwards, hobbits and travelling dwarves are welcome ter stop by fer drinks, songs, riddles, poems, gossip, stories, news and whatever else we can think of. Just have a look at the first post in the thread for the event guidelines!
As usual, the Green Dragon opens its doors to hobbits from all over the Shire (and even some hobbit visitors from the Bree-lands from time to time). Travelling dwarves are always welcome, while we strongly discourage visitors of the taller persuasion. Come as a hobbit instead, it is grand fun!
We'll have songs, dancing, poetry, riddles, news and whatever else we can think of! And as usual, we'll end the night with a grand fireworks show outside.
8PM GMT/UK (3PM servertime) and two hours onwards. Welcome hobbits!
Which means it is time fer the Green Dragon to open its doors to all hobbits and a few travelling dwarves. We start as usual, 8PM UK/GMT (3PM servertime). Bring a song, a poem or a riddle, or just come to dance and join the party!
This coming Friday, GDF will have a spring lover's theme! Miss Nannie's planned dance this Thursday sadly had to be cancelled due to bad weather ((server maintenance)), so we'll have some of them activities at the Green Dragon instead!
Entertainmentwise, it is grand if any offered song/poems this Friday have a love/spring theme, with romantic dances being a particular favourite. We may also shuffle around the GDF format a little (if there ever was one..), but rest assured: We'll still have us some grand, good hobbity fun!
Last week's storm has passed us by, and Barmy is eager to have his regulars (and new hobbits) come back to the Green Dragon tonight. I bet one Friday without making any coin really smarted...
Anyways, the doors open 8PM GMT (3PM servertime) as usual. Come by fer drinks and dancing, music and merriment, grand news and gossips and anything else we can think of. Welcome hobbits and travelling dwarves!
PS: Remember that GDF is a hobbit-themed event, which is why we ask that those participating roll up a hobbit character (although travelling dwarves are welcome). This is not to be mean or wicked or anything, but at the time of the books, longshanks (in particular elves) were rarely (if at all) seen mingling with the locals in the Shire villages. Thanks!
Friday! The Dragon is Green! Add them together, and you get Friday Dragon Green! No, wait...
GDF as usual tonight, hobbits! 8PM UK/GMT in Bywater (which currently is 4PM servertime, due to the US Daylight Savings Time). Bring songs, riddles, poems or similar suitable for a hobbit inn night, and just whisper to the hobbit trying to keep control of things if yer want to perform somet. Else, just come to chat, drink, dance and be merry.
Welcome to Bywater tonight, hobbits! Please remember that GDF is an event for hobbits, with dwarves welcome.
Once again a Friday night, once again a Green Dragon Night! 8PM UK in Bywater, hobbits and visiting dwarves, a warm welcome to yer!
This is the last weekend with the mismatch between EU and US Daylight Savings Time, so the event still starts at 4PM /servertime. Next week, the EU has turned the clocks, and the time difference will be back to normal.
We're getting near the GDF 5th anniversary, but this Friday will be one of them usual inn nights at the Dragon. Which means songs, dance, drink, poems, riddles and/or the latest in hobbit news! Oh, and surely fireworks!
With the GDF anniversaries well behind us, we're back to normal again! Which means that tonight, the Green Dragon opens its doors as usual, 8PM UK (3PM servertime), for songs, dancing, drinking, news, gossips and whatever else we can think of.
Welcome hobbits! See yer in Bywater!
Please remember: Green Dragon is an event for hobbits, with travelling dwarves welcome. Players with characters of a taller persuasion are strongly encouraged to roll up a hobbit alt if they would like to participate, since longshanks were a rare sight at hobbit inns.
There will be a Green Dragon Friday this evening! Every Friday in the Shire is a Green Dragon Friday!
Currently, there is a massive bug with the music system. This means that many players are unlikely to be able to hear or perform using string-based and percussion instruments (lute, harp, theorbo, drum, cowbells).
Which may put a damper on any hobbit evening, but not this one. While GDF has certainly always been an important area for music, over the years there have also been tales, stories, poems, riddles, gossip and news. So instead of many song performances, try bring this some of this to the inn tonight. Or just spend more time to chat with the hobbits there and get to know them better.
We may try a few lute-based songs, though, if for no other reason to raise awareness to the bug, and to get you all to help fill in /bug reports.
Sustained wood instruments, like clarinet, flute and horn, will likely work still, so it won't be all silent. The less said about bagpipes and pibgorns, the better... Still, if you play songs prepared for the lute on sustained instruments, you may get the odd wheezing or grunting sound coming from your instrument *grins*
So a warm welcome tonight, hobbits + travelling dwarves! We start at 8PM UK/BST (3PM servertime) as usual, and we'll see just how long we go on! See yer at the Green Dragon!
