    The most dashing Shire pierate in his quest for pies. His arch nemesis trying to foil his plans. Some decidedly furry spring singers. Welcome to a magical night when old tales come to life.

    Date: Saturday April 8
    Time: 7:30PM UK (2:30PM servertime)
    Location: "Scarywood Bowl", Scary, The Shire, Laurelin Server

    As usual, we'll just have to go try find those singing spring badgers in the Shire forests. As usual, we'll probably be disappointed. So, the Brandy Badgers have decided to perform a musical this night, telling the tale of the most dashing Shire pierate of them all: Ziggy Piecrust! He who aims high. He who wants to steal the pies. He who, one spring night, runs into a furry bunch of yawning creatures who love little more than berries and songs.

    Welcome to Scary! Let us celebrate spring together!

    OOC details:

    The event will be a musical, based around the works of David Bowie. The story and song lyrics are performed in the /say channel and will all be somewhat LOTRO lore relevant.

    The musical will be performed by The Brandy Badgers, an in-house music collective of the Grand Order of the Lost Mathom.

    This is a hobbit-themed tale, although if there are travellers from out of bounds who have good reason to be into hobbit music and badger mythology, then by all means come! Just remember to behave well and stay at the back, so you don’t block the view of the locals! This is also a roleplaying event, so please keep chat in-character and don't discuss things not belonging in Middle Earth.

    In case you wonder where Scarywood Bowl is, it is just south of the Scary square, at the bottom of the southern hill overlooking the village.

    We recommend that the audience disables 'frills' under their graphics settings for this performance. This will remove some tall grass that might impact on your view of the stage.

    Tonight! Welcome! The show starts at 7:30PM UK (2:30PM servertime), so be early if yer want a good spot on the slope overlooking the stage.

    Last-minute tips:
    • Disable “Frills” (under graphics settings) if you’re bothered with tall grass near the stage
    • Enabe “Chat bubbles” under your chat settings to see all actor lines and song lyrics. This will allow you to see chat text hovering above the actors/singers. Chat and music lyrics will all form a complete tale.
    • The musical takes ca 2 hours, so bring plenty of food and drink. Please pick up the litter when yer leave
    • We go for in-character chat in /say, so there should be no talk about Bowie, real song titles, or any other real-life issues for that matter.
    • Please be considerate to others in the audience, don’t spam emotes and don’t talk above the actors
    • Badgers love berries. Should any show up, offer berries to them carefully, and don’t be surprised by “snatch and run” tactics. After the initial wariness, the badgers might well end up trusting yer, to the extend that them will badger yer for more berries.

    I'm afraid I'll be missing the concert tonight. Over on the far side of Arr-Ell Creek it's "Master's Week" and, given I've been glued to the TV/live stream the last two days, there's little chance I'll break loose on "moving day." I bet it'll be a grand performance though!

    I won't be able to make it either, as I am away visiting a mad Blue Hunter in RL this weekend.

    I wish you all the best for the concert then!

    Ziggy Piecrust soars to the sky! Or at least sideways...

    Thanks all who attended! It was lovely to see yer there.

    For those curious, a Brandy Badgers spring project script is near 30 pages long, with ca 6000 words (this includes commands to the actors, music parts lists, etc.), and it typically takes ca 3 months to develop. We hope yer enjoyed it!
