Green Dragon Friday (weekly hobbit event)
February 23rd, 2024
7:30PM UK time (2:30PM servertime)
The Green Dragon, Bywater, The Shire
Friday, or Highday, is the chief day of the week for hobbits. After noon, hobbits consider it a holiday which is celebrated with evening feasts. Or a lively night at the inn with good friends. Like at the Green Dragon!
Usually lasting around two hours, the order of a Green Dragon Friday is always loose. Expect light chat, heavy drinking, much music and dance, perhaps some riddles, many a pie, definitely a poem, ever so often a story, always the latest in hobbit news and gossip, sometimes a few surprises.
Bring a riddle, a song, a poem or a story if you like, it is always grand if yer get involved! Just have a chat with the hobbit orchestrating things somewhat near the dancing rug, and he or she will find a good time for yer contribution. Should the night be busy, it may have to wait until next time, though!
At special occasions through the year, GDF will temporarily move to other venues. Examples can be anniversary celebrations, yule parties or the likes. This will be advertised well in advance.
Green Dragon Friday (GDF) is an in-character roleplaying event aiming to replicate a lively hobbit night at the inn. To help us do this, please follow these guidelines:
- Be in-character, by acting and behaving like hobbits in the Shire would. Avoid talking about real-life issues ((even in brackets)).
- Be a hobbit, since GDF is primarily a hobbit RP event. A few travelling dwarves are always welcome at the Green Dragon, but for lore reasons we ask that men and elves do not attend the event.
- Be friendly, mature and come to have fun together with others.
- Follow the detailed event guidelines as listed in this post.
Lastly, don't worry too much! Them hobbits are a friendly and tolerant lot, eager to welcome new visitors to the inn. See yer there!
