As Yuletide was an important time for the Hobbits to celebrate, we will have a roleplaying game taking place in the Shire! The rules are simple - be nice to everyone, be realistic (no supernatural powers or something like that), and HAVE FUN!!
God-modding (i.e. deciding and writing what other characters are doing and saying) is allowed within reasonable limits
! Don't make up things about other characters that the particular character would never do or say! Stay within the limits of the characters. That said, let's go and party!
The short day quickly darkened and stars twinkled in the almost black sky. The trees around the large field where the party took place were filled with lights in different colours, and the night was filled with singing voices, laughter and people enjoying themselves. There were no empty places around the many tables, where Hobbits and their guests ate and drank as long as there was food and drink. Those who waited for their turns at the tables were dancing and singing. Children were playing around or listening to stories told by older Hobbits.
At the end of a table Rachel sat with her friends, enjoying a large piece of apple pie.
"This is a little bit different from the last time we were here," she said, referring to the Society's last Middle-earth trip.
"Yes, I think we should go here every time the Hobbits are having a party!" Venefica said, helping herself to more mushrooms.
"Oh no, not every time. The next time we're going to Middle-earth for a party, we'll visit the Elves!" Rachel grinned. "Still, this party is not bad..."
Rachel took another bite of her apple pie, then turned from the table and said,
"Let's go and dance a little, what do you say?" She didn't wait for an answer, but ran off to the group of dancing Hobbits in the middle of the party field, laughing all the way there.
