The 2021 hobbit Yule video: First meetup

It’s time to dress up right

Yule is getting nearer, and what better thing to do than to make a large drawing to greet yer friends a very merry yuletide? Not much! So here we go!

Date: Saturday December 4
Time: 7:30PM UK (2:30PM servertime), PLEASE BE ON TIME
Location: Budgeford, The Shire

We will have two meetups again this year to help make the drawing. The first will be Saturday December 4, while the second is on Tuesday December 14. See below for details!

What will happen this year? Will there be ballets with purple snow beasts or surprise parties for old lonely hobbits? Shall we visit the dwarves or sigh over a lack of snow in the Shire? Take part to find out!


Once again, I’d like to make a yule video with as many hobbit players on Laurelin as possible. The video will be released December 24th, in the Hobbity Yule Calendar.


For the video shoot, please remember:

  • Dress up like a pig and wear a pig mask!
  • If you haven’t got a pig mask, bring other animal masks: Sheep, donkey, rabbit, duckling or chicken. If you still have none, come anyway, we will have some you can borrow to equip. Outfit + colours at your leisure.
  • If you don’t have a mask, come 15 minutes early so we can outfit you with one.
  • Be a hobbit!
  • Do not have any pets summoned!
  • DISABLE ALL SPEED BUFFS! Hunters, I am especially looking at you and the “Find the path” skill, please disable it.
  • Be prepared to follow orders!
  • Try to avoid speaking in /say, use the raid (/ra) instead
  • Have fun!

In addition to the video shoots, I’d also love it if all hobbits sent me a screenshot of themselves in-game, in a festive/merry/yule motive. I can use those in the end credits of the video.

  • Please use high-quality screenshots (1024×768 pixels is really the minimum, but much larger is better).
  • Widescreen format is preferred!
  • Don’t add any effects or text to the images.
  • Make sure they aren’t too dark.
  • Send the screenshots to me before end of December 20th, at the very latest! Use this email: [IMG]

For inspiration, here is the yule video from last year.
