Hobbit Yule video, 1st meetup

Never feed them after midnight!

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: Sunday December 3
Time: 7:00PM UK (2:00PM servertime)
Location: Kauppa-Kohta, Stablemaster, Forochel (south-east part, level 40-zone)

We will have two meetups again this year to help make the drawing. The first will be Sunday December 3, while the second is on Tuesday December 12. See below for details!

What will happen this year? Will there be ballets with purple snow beasts or surprise parties for old lonely hobbits? Will Shire animals fight in the fields, or will them youngsters sigh over a lack of snow in the Shire? Take part to find out!

OOC

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.

Preparations

This first video shoot is the most action-packed one, while the second will be slightly lazier. For this first video shoot, please remember:

  • Be on time! We’ll head into the mountains for the start of the shoot, so we can’t wait around too long.
  • Dress up like vile, horrible oinkers! Wear this mask and a suitably scary outfit to go with it. If you don’t have the mask, we’ll have some you can borrow and slot cosmetically on the night
  • DISABLE ALL SPEED BUFFS! Hunters, I am especially looking at you and the “Find the path” skill, please disable it.
  • Bring festival trick consumables, like D.R.A.G.O.N, spider legs, snowballs, doom-shrooms or similar.
  • Be prepared to follow orders. Disable all pets.
  • Try to avoid speaking in /say, use the raid (/ra) or the custom chat channel announced on the night instead

Screenshots

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

Formatting of the screenshots:

  • The higher resolution, the better.
  • Use widescreen format (16×9 or similar), don’t cut out just a small picture of yourself.
  • Don’t add any effects or text to the images. Turn off UI elements, NPC names, etc.
  • Make sure the screenshots aren’t too dark.
  • Send the screenshots to me before end of December 20th, at the very latest! Use this email:

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