Harvest time equals party time! - Gazette Issue 9 - 1422 S.R.

Well, the harvests look promising this year and are being brought in as we speak. It will still take some time before all the produce of the Shire is safely stacked and stored in the several granges and warehouses in our lands. But the farmers are happy and have started their Farmer's Fair. So if you want to witness the shameful gluttony of our Mayor, then head over to Bywater. And while you're there, take the opportunity to do some fishing. But beware! Despite all the efforts of Master Ponso Pondhopper there seem to be a few bad fishes in the pond! Everyone tries not to catch them, but on the other hand: if you do catch one you'll help rid the waters of the pond of them! You will even earn festival Tokens if you show enough bad fish to the hobbit in charge. But ofcourse we hope you will catch a lot more good fish and delicious fish which can be turned into great meals by our cooks.

But there is more going on: up North too...
