Yule love it!

Yule is getting nearer, 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!

Date: Sunday November 29
Time: 7:30PM ((UK, 2:30PM servertime)), PLEASE BE ON TIME
Location: Kauppa-kohta, the village at the south end of Forochel. Meet up by the milestone.

We will have two meetups again this year to help make the drawing. The first will be Sunday November 29 in Forochel, while the second is on Tuesday December 8. See below for details!

What will happen this year? Will there be ballets with purple snow beasts or surprise parties for old lonely hobbits? Shall we visit the dwarves or sigh over a lack of snow in the Shire? Take part to find out!


Once again, I’d like to make a yule video with as many hobbit players on Laurelin as possible. The video will be released December 24th, in the Hobbity Yule Calendar.

There will be two video shoots this year too:

  • The first video shoot will be Sunday November 29, in Kauppa-Kohta, Forochel. This is a level 40+ area, but as long as you make it to the village, even players at lower levels can take part.
  • The second is shoot is Tuesday December 8, location still TBC.

I’d also love it if all hobbits sent me a screenshot of themselves 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 much larger is better). Widescreen format is great! Don’t add any effects or text to the images, and make sure they aren’t too dark. Send the screenshots to me before end of December 21st, at the very latest! Use this email:

For this video, please remember:

  • Be a hobbit. It is a hobbit yule video after all!
  • DISABLE ALL SPEED BUFFS (hunters, I am especially looking at you and the Find the path skill, please disable it)
  • Be prepared to follow orders!
  • Dress up warm! Wear warm, festive-looking clothes (red, green and yellow are very grand)
  • Bring lanterns or sparklers if you have them, also fireworks
  • Try to avoid speaking in /say, use the raid (/ra) instead
  • Have fun!

For inspiration, here is the yule video from last year.  ))
