Tis time for another Grand Order of the Lost Mathom and Hobbitry-in-Arms hendeavor!

Are you downy folk ready to go to the North Downs and get plucked for pillows? That is, have you ever dreamt of being a chicken? Roaming around with your feet in the dirt, eating worms, living your most feathery life? This could become a reality! It’s time to Fly The Coop and plant our feet into the wide world to solve a cluckish problem and have many meetings with animals on the way.

Join us at Sandson’s farm, where a very charming rooster called George has some dashing chores for us.

 ((OOC Details:

To participate as a chicken you will have to complete the introductory Flying the Coop quests. To do these, travel to Sandson’s farm in the Delving Fields in the Shire and talk to a rooster called George. This will bring you to a quest chain called The Sky is Falling. You will need to complete these to participate as a chicken:


More information is available on the LOTRO Wikipedia:

The Sky Is Falling Quests and Flying The Coop Quests

This time, we will do the North Downs run!

During this event, there will be a few hobbits to herd (protect) our adventuring chickens from being eaten by the dangers lurking in the wild. It’s up to you whether you want to participate as a chicken or a herder.

We will be using the regional chat (/regional) in-game in our chicken forms to communicate with each other. There will be someone in chicken form communicating with the herding team in order to keep us all connected. ))


This is a hobbit-preferred roleplaying event, though we welcome well-behaved folk of other races.

Meet at Sandson’s Farm in the Delving Fields in the Shire near George the Rooster. If you’re running behind, send a tell to an officer who will assist you in finding us!
