    Summer is about ter officially end!
    There’s no better way ter see it out than ter go on a hobbit journey!
    Join us for a relaxing weekend away at the seaside resort in Belfalas!

    Date: Saturday October 14 and Sunday October 15
    Time: 7:30PM UK both days (2:30PM servertime)
    Location: Saturday: Travel from the Golden Perch to Belfalas. Sunday: Nóruimar, Belfalas homestead.

    A member of the Grand Order was lucky enough to come into possession of sommat lankeys call a “Holiday Home” in a “seaside resort” in a lankey land known as “Western Gondor”.

    The Grand Order is currently preparing to go ter this resort ter celebrate the last weekend of fine Summer weather. There will be a bit of an adventure to get there, but we have it on good authority that there is plenty of fun and relaxation ter be had once we arrive. As yer know – there’s no party like a hobbit party!

    We also welcome other adventurous hobbits ter come along for the trip. Don’t worry if yer waistband is too small for the journey down and back; we’ll do our best ter look after yer!
    Pack up all yer need (including a sleeping roll and tent just in case there’s too many for the lodgings and fizzers) and join us fer the last grand hobbit party of the summer!

    SCHEDULE (subject ter change)

    SATURDAY, October 14

    (2) Walk/Ride to Bree: West Gate, onwards to South Gate Stable Master

    (4) Short Walk to: 1 Cape Road, Nóruimar, Belfalas Homesteads, Western Gondor

    *For those with small waist sizes unable to take ponies to Dol Amroth (and not willing to spend a Mithril Coin to get there):

    1 Cape Road, Nóruimar, Belfalas Homesteads, Western Gondor

    Grand Order Farewell To Summer Party with music & feasting

    Travel home
    Express Return to The Shire (for those not sleeping over)
    -Hunters can help if needed


    For a map of the neighbourhood, see:

    There are some quests in the Belfalas homesteads, which will be the basis for the exploration on Saturday. Those who have done it already can easily join the walks and roleplay exploring the neighbourhood.

    Those that complete the set of Belfalas Homestead intro tasks get individual rewards for each and also a lovely Gondoran fireplace as a present once all are done. ((You can see it in the main room of the holiday house)).

    Quests for Saturday:

    Introduction: Narvindon Lighthouse

    -Quest: Cape of Belfalas by talking to Falastir, who aims to show us around the homesteads

    -Quest: Homesteads of Gondor by talking to Nothwen, who also aims to show us around the homesteads

    All this is is literally walking or riding to specific areas of Nóruimar + checking out the 3 housing types which is easily done by touring them via the housing broker.

    Nice rewards given at the end including a lovely Gondoran fireplace. [You can see it in the main room of the holiday house]

    Additional Side Quests for those interested

    Slope of Emyn Ernil (Falastir)

    -Quest: Wood from the Emyn Ernil
    ("chop wood" aka kill apparently deadly Emyn Ernil Pine Trees - which didn't try to attack).

    Main Homestead area (Cranniel)

    -Quest: Coastal Berries; pick berries along Nóruimar’s coastal road and beach areas

    -Quest: Walking Shell; walk Cranniel’s dog along the Cape Road

    Cathlond Docks & Kinship Islands (Haldil)

    -Quest: Fishing the Day Away (this is done on the docks)

    -Quest: Checking the Traps - this is done on the kinship islands Tol Falthui and Tol Lochul (ferries to both are at the docks)

    In summary, paraphrasing the fine words of Miss Nimelia Stoutfoot:

    A Grand Order Farewell To Summer is a roleplaying adventure, with opportunities to do Belfalas Homestead quests on the side for those who can and don't already have them completed.

    Join us for a lot of fun, both on the road and in Belfalas!

    Thankee ever so much fer the kind words and encouragement Master Potty and Miss Lina. *smiles*

    I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves and hope we can make this a regular event.

    Some folks were saying it would be nice ter go back and do some of things we couldn't get to last weekend - I was thinking perhaps a trip in the Spring after we've gotten the Yule Holidays out of the way and folks are clamoring for better weather ter get away from the cold and rain fer a bit.
