    Our dear friend Rubysue has sailed into the west.
    We will meet do the things she loved.
    Fishing, adventures and an ale at the inn.

    Date: Saturday May 25th
    Time: 7:30PM UK time / 2:30PM servertime
    Location: 4 Wending Way, Songburrow, Shire Homesteads

    Our good friend and grand mathomer Rubysue has passed away. We wish to invite her friends and aquaintances to an evening where we remember her by doing all the things she loved.

    We will meet at Rubysue's burrow at 4 Wending Way, Songburrow, Shire Homesteads. The plans for the evening are flexible, but will likely include:
    • Fishing in the river near her burrow (so bring fishing poles)
    • An adventure of sorts, where we travel into the wild and look for trouble (so bring weapons and sturdy clothes)
    • An ale at her favourite inn, the Green Dragon.
    During the evening, we want to remember the good times we had together with Rubysue. While the occasion is one of sadness, we aim for a fond and good-natured event where smiles and laughter are just as welcome as tears.

    Welcome along to raise a mug of ale for a grand hobbit adventurer!

    OOC:
    This is an in-character event. The adventure part of the event will depend on how many wishes to join and their in-game level. It may be chasing Roving Threats in the North Down, going into a raid or just exploring dangerous territories. We'll see on the night.

    Here's the song I made for the occasion.
    It's best sung to the melody of Eric Clapton's beautiful ballad "Let it Grow"

    As I went a searching for superior wood
    I found more than I had hoped to find that morning
    So I called my friends
    To go adventuring. Let us go!

    Let us go, let us go!
    It’s a quest that I bestow
    Through the forests through the snow
    Adventure’s waiting. Let us go!

    When not calmly fishing, just to ease my mind,
    I try hard to keep the World a really nice place
    And vanquish every orc
    By one kneecap at a time!

    Let us go, let us go!
    It’s a quest that I bestow
    Through the forests through the snow
    Adventure’s waiting. Let us go!
    Let us go!

    Time runs out on people. It gets them in the end.
    Just you remember all the good times that we had.
    Remember me at times
    When adventuring you go!

    Let us go, let us go!
    It’s a quest that I bestow
    Through the forests through the snow
    Adventure’s waiting. Let us go!

    Let us go, let us go!
    It’s a quest that I bestow
    Through the forests through the snow
    Do it for Ruby,
    Rubysue!!

    Thanks, Master Ragwort, for your kind words.
    To be honest, I had difficulty singing because of tears welling up in my eyes at the time.
    It was a sad occasion, but I hope that thinking back of Rubysue will make us smile with the good memories in stead of making us sad.
