Yule is near, and what better thing to do than to make a large drawing to greet yer friends a very merry yuletide? Not much! So here we go! This is the second meetup to make this year's Yule drawing ((*video)) for the Laurelin hobbits! 

Date: Tuesday December 15th
Time: 7:30PM ((UK, 2:30PM servertime))
Location: Sûri-kylä, Forochel

(( The second shoot for this year's yule video is Tuesday December 15th, in Sûri-kylä far north in Forochel. We'll go on a merry jaunt through the village, not least stopping to warm ourselves regularly on the campfires near. Also... there might be bathing involved... *shivers*

This shoot takes part in the level 40-ish zone of Forochel. This means that low-level characters have a bit of work cut out for them, since we may not be able to summon you there due to level requirements. There is a swift-travel option from West Bree, which you may be able to unlock with a Mithril Coin. If not, let us know in advance and we might be able to escort you there (but not on the night itself - then we'll be busy shooting the video)

Hopefully yer are up for it! The video will be released near Yule, most likely on December 24th.
  • Also, I’d love it if yer hobbits sent me a screenshot of yourself in-game, in a festive/merry/yule motive. I can use those in the end credits of the video. Please use high-quality screenshots (1024×768 pixels is really the minimum, but larger is much better), and don’t add any effects or text to the image.
  • Send it to me before December 21st, at the very latest! Use this email:

For the videos, please remember:
  • Multiboxers: Please consider coming only on a main character. We need you to be able to move around swiftly and follow orders. Having characters just standing there all unresponsive-like is unfortunate for the end video.
  • Don't go AFK while in the group of actors. Then you may end up ruining shots, spoiling locations or similar. Run a bit away from the group and hide instead.
  • Wear warm, festive-looking clothes (red and green are very grand)
  • Bring lanterns or sparklers if you have them, also fireworks
  • Bring fishing rods
  • Have fun!
For inspiration, here is the yule video from last year.
