Maps are grand! Sunday we'll have us a lazy night in Songburrow to look at maps, drink some tea and have a lovely summer evening together! Welcome hobbits!  

Date: Sunday July 21 
Time: 7:30PM UK  
Location: Songburrow Hall, 4 Brookbank Street, Songburrow 

There is a lot to be learned from reading maps, so any hobbit travelling the countryside should have some basic knowledge of them. Besides, them can show exciting things, maps. Do them mark grand ore locations? Secret biscuit stashes? Perhaps! 

So we'll meet at Songburrow Hall for a relaxed evening of food, drinks and maps! Good hobbit and dwarven friends welcome!


This is a quick social event to enable folks to get up to speed on the cartographer deed in LOTRO. The maps that yer can trade for during the Festivals unlocks a cartographile deed, which among other things rewards you with a lovely large wall map of the lands. This Sunday, we'll do the Eriador deed described here. We will do the Moria one at a later date.

Part of the night will be a "borrowing of maps", so people who are missing maps in the deed can complete it. This is done by trades - you have to borrow someone else's maps. Once you have had them in your inventory, the deed will trigger, and you can return them to the owner. If yer have lots of maps, do bring them along!

Else, I am sure there will be food and relaxed hobbit merriment too!
