Landrovals largest player produced event is almost here! June 16th starting at 4pm server time! Roll an alt now to see the most incredible "battle of the bands", a 4 hour marathon of music and shenanigans! Bands will perform from multiple servers. All on top of Weathertop with escort service available for all low levels. Listed are the ingame channels you will be able to access.
/regional - The "microphone" channel for the stage
/weatherstock - Weatherstock public chat channel.
/weatherstock-de - German Weatherstock public chat channel
/weatherstock-fr - French Weatherstock public chat channel
/weatherstock-sn - Sindarin Weatherstock public chat channel
/advice - FOZ public channel
/trade - Vending team public channel
Bumping for freshness and visibilty. It looks as if there will be a horse caravan in the minutes prior to the start of Weatherstock. We expect there to be over 100 riders , possibly 200, leaving the Forsaken Inn. If you like horse processions you might want to check it out. If you lag excessively during the caravan, this will be a sign you will have to adjust your settings to very low indeed.
Weatherstock vendors will be handing out ale, smoke, and hope tokens at the Forsaken Inn for a time before we head out so make sure you have room in yer bags. Hope tokens cannot be used by players under level 15 so beware of that.
The community of Landroval has been exceptionally warm and inviting to all of the "international" bands. On behalf of all of us at LMB a huge /hug-/kiss to all of ye!
While everyone knows the kind of lag we will be experiencing, there is a general hope we will exceed last years 500-600 attendance figures. Our advertising has put out feelers to many game related sites and we definitely encourage anyone to give this event "word of mouth". The GMs at Turbine/Warner use this event to stress test the server so lets give em something to stress! There is still time to start an alt and get ready for that big day.
It looks like there will be no less than 300 gold (300,000 silver) to be divvied up between the 3 winning bands. Two of those categories will be determined by the crowd so let us know when you are raptured by any performance! Using Hope Tokens after a performance is your way to vote!
It is expected that "Casual Stroll to Mordor" will live broadcast this event. We also expect color commentary from Galenhir, the founder of The Lonely Mountain Band. He and Harperella, and kin member, Bowlin brainstormed the first Weatherstock so many years ago. So be sure and get that page bookmarked. The lower audio setting works best for that site.

Aww, that's unfortunate. This weekend is bad for me, as I have both a Ren Faire to attend and a beta event going on in another MMO that I'm covering for my video podcast. Would have been nice to sit and watch the show.
