    Needlehole. Near the Shire borders. Visited by travelling dwarves going to and from the Blue Mountains. A good place to visit if one is to learn more about the relationship between hobbits and the other races. Welcome to the seventh hobbit historical field trip!

    Location: Needlehole, town center

    About the field trip

    What are the relations between hobbits and the other races? Were we really subject to a longshank king a long time ago? Who built the roads and bridges in the Shire? How are hobbits impacted by events in other parts of Middle Earth?
    Answers to these questions, and possibly more, may be given during our seventh historical field trip in hobbit lands. There are no guarantees, though!

    Meet up in the center of Needlehole. After a short stroll outside of town, our historians will present stories, tales, poetry and/or songs related to hobbit lore. Food WILL be served, but of course, any hobbit knows that the safe bet is to bring some of yer own.

    Want to know more about hobbit history? Then come along!

    OOC details

    This is the seventh in our series of hobbit field trips, held approximately every six months! As usual, the event aims to combine a few lectures/stories of hobbit lore with songs, poetry and entertainment.

    Previous events have been to:
    • Greenfields (autumn 2009)
    • The Three-Farthing Stone (spring 2010)
    • Girdley Island/Brandywine river (autumn 2010)
    • Adso’s camp/Bree (spring 2011)
    • Buckland (autumn 2011)
    • Return to Greenfields (spring 2012)
    Given the subject matter, this is very much a hobbit-preferred event. Should the odd lore-seeking dwarf or longshank interested in hobbit lore choose to show up, they won’t be chased away, but of course, you just KNOW that it will be much more fun if you rolled up a hobbit alt for the evening, don’t you? If not, be prepared for puzzled looks and the odd comment about your beard and/or height during the night.

    People are encouraged to listen raptly to the given lectures, and to save most of the questions to the breaks. It goes without saying that this is a IC event, but remember that our historians have been known to go for a tall, exciting tale more than strict lore accuracy.

    The field trip should last between 1,5- 2 hours.

    Welcome along! Have fun!

    Less than a week to go! Will I get my epic poem finished on time...?

    I shall be bringing a small keg of brandy on the trip, as it is sure to be a little bit damp underfoot. A complimentary tot of brandy for all who attend should keep that marsh air at bay.

    Lets hope my notes don't meet an unhappy end in one of the murky pools around the Rushock Bog. See you later hobbits.

    Oh, damns! I missed it!

    I've been a poorly hobbit of late, not getting out of me burrow much if at all. See you all soon I hope.
