(foreword: I'm not among the organisers, not paid for the ad, etc. ;) I'm just a huge fan of community events and I thought maybe not everyone is following the Player events thread on the official forum, so I posted it here - also I was dumb and wrote Sunday instead of Saturday... luckily there's an edit function)


Now that Hobnanigans is finished (a.k.a. chicken hockey, it was fun and will return in the future quite frequently,, with the playfields above Bree are now empty, it's time to focus on steeds. Kiralynn from Windy Acres, alongside with other groups are organising / holding 2014's Spring Racing Carnival on this Saturday, Landroval server.

Maybe the longest (in duration*) player-run event of Middle-earth (not sure about other mmo's), it will run from 10am to 10pm - US time sadly, so for Eu it's from Saturday afternoon to Sunday dawn. There will be horce races, concerts, fashion show, formation riding, trivias, rodeo clowns (?? Don't ask, I also can't wait to see what's that :) ) fireworks, and lots of fun. Here's the timetable and the race rules:


So, if you want to have some fun, roll an alt on Landroval and visit the Shire or Bree on Saturday. Who knows, you can maybe even won some prizes. Almost forgot, there wil be prizes :) Sure, it's all about having fun, but for those who want rewards, there will be Turbine Points (almost $200 worth total during the day), steeds (the Steed of the First Marshall), unique titles and gold too.

The event's intro vid:


* Winterstock was longer in total, but that was divided onto four days, this one is 12 hours on one day

    Well, it was great fun indeed :)

    I was there for "only" 7-8 hours, so I missed the big race at the end, but I still was able to /cheer at 3 races, the rodeo run, and the formation show - not to mention the concerts. Oh, about the rodeo clowns (above I had no clue what will they do), turned out they're sort of a stand-up comedy performance with music alongside the jokes. Pretty good jokes. "Love your goat" :)

    A few shots:

    Lilikate's band playing during the fashion show:

    Fireworks at the Start/Finish line in the Shire (on the rooftop playing Die Meisterbarden von Bree)

    Andune concert before the Formation riding performance:

    At the barrel race rodeo (playing Just Abby's)


    (in LotRO 1 day is about 3 "real" hours, hence the day/night scenery change)
