lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Weatherstock Remember when I said that you could play music in LOTRO? In groups as well as solo? I have? Good. Have I told you about my kinship, The Lonely Mountain Band, and how every Monday we hold a little event called Ales and Tales where we play songs, tell tales, drink ale(yes, you can craft booze in game. Pipe-weed too) and generally have a fun time? I have? Good.
Now let me tell you about an annual event The Lonely Mountain Band has held every summer since 2009. Think of it as a big Middle-Earth Battle of the Bands meets Woodstock kind of shindig held on Weathertop. What's it called? Weatherstock!
Seeing as I only joined the LMB shortly after LOTRO's F2P launch, this will be my first Weatherstock. And I am so excited for it. I heard from our kinship leader herself that over 200 folks were in attendance last year. LOTRO podcasts will be commenting on it. Two of the bands who signed up are from an EU server(which, until June 1st this year, are run by a different company). Saying that this is kind of a big deal is a huge understatement!
For more information, see the link at the beginning of the post. I doubt many on the flist will be interested, but if I can spread the word, well, I'll be content.
And now I must figure out what organizing team I should be on.
