The Shire to Fornost: A Hobbit Historical Field Trip

Yesterday, I ventured myself to Fornost during one of the historical field trips that the Grand Order organised. Despite the desolate place full of danger things and creatures, we had a great time!

The purpose of the trip was to reach Fornost, the northern city where the free people stood against an ancient evil a thousand years ago. If you want to know more about this place and the role played by the Hobbits in this story, Lina published a very interesting lecture on her blog.

Here some pictures from last night.


A Yule Present

A Yule Present

Dear Neti,
how are you? I hope you made it safe and sound in your burrow and you started decorating it for Yule.

Probably you’re wondering why there is Acorn secured at the fence in your yard. I’ll be honest, that animal is very fond of you and she missed you. I noticed a sadness in her eyes and a lack of her usual enthusiasm.
That’s why I decided to send her to you. I remember you recently lost your pony, so I believe that Acorn will be a good companion for you, even if you aren’t a Dwarf.

I wish you a merry Yule and I hope to see you again, sooner or later.

The 4th Annual Haunted Burrow Ghostwalk

The 4th Annual Haunted Burrow Ghostwalk

It’s big, it’s broad
It’s broad it’s bright,
It fills the sky on All Hallow’s Night.
The grandest sight ye’ve ever seen.
Tis the Party Tree on Hallowe’en!

4th Annual Haunted Burrow Ghostwalk and Tales

Archet Aid

Archet Aid

Dear Primula,

I’m sorry for waiting so long before writing you. The Grand Journey Home brought me so far from the Shire that I missed you and all my relatives so much, but when my friends call for an adventure, well, I can’t say no.

It was a dangerous journey, after all, and it wasn’t easy for me to write while we were camping, since I was worried to analyse all the unfamiliar sounds around us.

Yesterday I attended my first Archet Aid and I really enjoyed it even if it was the most crowded event I ever attended. Tall people everywhere! I didn’t even know where to put my feet without being pushed or, worse, crushed. Fortunately, I’ve been able to find my friends when I arrived and we had so much fun attending a play, watching Master Hoo’s archery skills, observing a race and their funny competitors and more. A nice event for the people of that unlucky village.

Hope you’re doing well, my friend. I miss you.
