-Participants must create a hobbit alt (the masqueraded mystery hobbits) , such alt's identity must remain secret from all friends/kin members.

-The alts/masqueraded hobbits must maintain the original gender of your character but can have different features/class/clothing/ and of course RP story.

-There will not be a traditional 'Master of Ceremony' , all hobbits must therefore use their initiative, and come forward to perform in an orderly fashion .

-Musicians and performers must take care of learning some new (never heard before ) music, songs, poems, and stories. Each performer has 5/8 minutes allocated for music/poem/story to allow all to take part and the night to be a success, please do not use more then 5/8 minutes.

-Due to the very nature of this event, only 'solo' performances will take place during the Ball by the mystery hobbits.

-Due to the very nature of this event, every hobbit can bring some food and drinks to share with others (this is only a suggestion and not obligatory)

-The 'Guess Who?' Game: After the musical performances, a signal will be given to all the guests. This will be the beginning of the 'Guess Who?' Game. Each hobbit will be center stage while others will try to guess his/her real identity. This hobbit will then walk behind a tree , take his mask off and come back with their real identity

Grand Finale : Musical surprises , fireworks and all over merriment.

We expect this event to last as a normal 'Green Dragon Friday' this will be achieved with the cooperation and initiative of all participants.

Please come along, have fun and enjoy the magic of Masquerade Ball.

((OOC details:

This is a hobbit-prefered events but friends of other races will be welcome should they wish to take part.

Here is how change between a mystery hobbit and main character can be done:

1- Amorey makes sure she is wearing the same clothes as her mystery hobbit in one of her outfit slots.

2- Amorey then goes to the site of the Ball (Northcotton Farm Market) making sure not to show her costume ( show a different outfit or equipment) and goes offline.

3- Her mystery hobbit comes online and go to the Ball.

4- When the time to guess come, the mystery hobbit step forward, people will guess who she is...she then walk behind a tree, goes offline.

5-Amorey comes back on wearing the same clothes but no mask any more. Her true identity is now revealed))
