Yule Screenshot Roundup 2018 – Part 5

Sorry about the delay but here is the 5th and final part of my Yule screen shot roundup 2018. To quote Douglas Adams, “I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by”.

On 29th December 2018 the Brandy Badgers held their annual Winterhome Wassailing event, on Laurelin.

Halloween Screenshot Round-up 2019

Here is my screen shot round-up for Halloween 2019.

On Sunday 20th October 2019 The Remediators played “Halloween and Horror Music” near the Haunted Burrow, on Landroval, in LOTRO. I’m afraid near the end of the concert my LOTRO client logged me out saying that I had logged in on another character on Laurelin. In a blind panic, thinking my account had been hacked, I logged into Laurelin. Long story short, my account hadn’t been hacked but by the time I logged back into Landroval the concert was over and the band had gone. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for a great concert.

The Gallic Villagers play OAKS

On Saturday 12th October 2019, The Gallic Villagers played an OAKS concert. OAKS is short for the Oldfurlong Amazing Koncert Series, (somebody really wanted that to spell OAKS). I suspect that someone was Miss Acorne, who organises and introduces the concerts. As always the concert took place in the Oldfurlong neighbourhood of the Shire homesteads, on Laurelin, in LOTRO.

Weatherstock 2019 Screen Shots

On Saturday 20th July 2019 the Weatherstock concert 2019 took place at Weathertop, on the Landroval server, in LOTRO.

I’m afraid the best laid plans of mice and hobbits often go awry. I planned to do all my RL stuff and get my characters into position before the concert started. However I didn’t and so I missed seeing the LMB megaband and the first four bands live; though I did listen to them on Miss Druidsfire’s Twitch stream. I have included screen shots of the bands taken from the stream by kind permission of Miss Druids. The YouTube playlist of her Weatherstock concert 2019 videos are here.

Fifth “Forest of OAKS” Music Festival

On Saturday 11th May 2019, the fifth “Forest of OAKS” music festival took place, on the Laurelin server, in the mmorpg “Lord of the Rings Online”. OAKS stands for “Oldfurlong Amazing Koncert Series” (somebody really wanted that to spell OAKS). Every month Miss Acorne Oakley hosts an OAKS concert in the Oldfurlong homestead of the Shire housing area. Every year a “Forest of OAKS” music festival is held in which the bands from that year return to play a 30 minute set.

The first band were Harfang’s Family.

Miss Rosalie’s Farewell Party at Elevenses

On Sunday 7th April 2019 the Second Breakfast kinship hosted a special edition of their regular Elevenses event to bid farewell to Miss Rosalie Rumble, on the Crickhollow server, in LOTRO. Miss Rosalie has been on since Crickhollow ever since it opened in 2010 and she created the Shirefest event, the premier music festival on Crickhollow. In real life, for the last few years Miss Rosalie has been battling against cancer and sadly that battle is coming to an end. Miss Rosalie said that before she sailed to the west she wanted to have one last party and so the Second Breakfast kinship organised this event.
