RP event: Passage to the Havens

Last week I was by the Hall of Fire questing on my little champ Nenneth when I decided to pop in and hassle a friend who was rping there momentarily. Little did I know I was going to end up staying and meeting some great folks. I'm so glad I did as rp is something I've been wanting to get into. I met the lovely members of Loth-i-Lonnath (Curugirion, Aearandir, Durthand) and had an absolutely lovely time with them. So much so that I stayed up with them and my friend until the server was shutting down. It was so refreshing to find such accepting, inclusive and friendly people and great rp...especially after the fail of an event I'd attended the previous night with mass amounts of OOC spam and just downright non-inclusive people who were too wrapped up in themselves.

Loth-i-Lonnath held an event last night as they were travelling from Imladris back to the Havens and invited others to come along. I of course jumped at the opportunity to meet up with them and even finally sat down and worked up a background for a character...something I've been thinking about doing for a while. Funnily enough I've done this with an alt nowhere near being my main..but it's worked out really well.

All in all the journey was lovely, until the end when a few people decided to hijack the event and try to make the show about them. I found it in extreme poor taste and to be the weak spot of the group (some of the rp was just atrocious...I'm a noob and I can see that!). Hopefully next week will be a bit smoother in that regard.

But yay! I'm very glad to be getting into this and have found such great people. Screenies after the jump!

The wine and music begins!:

Looks like it was a nice event! I've been on a few road trips from Rivendell onwards and they have been a nice change from the usual HoF fare (although I'd prefer even more to focus on the journey itself, rather than reaching a destination).

Your post inspired me to try and attend some events again, I sort of lost my Rp juices after that "fail of an event". I guess I'll have lots of catching up to do :)! Will have to see if I can make it to the Wilderness Appreciation thingie tomorrow.

This event is very much focusing on the journey. We've only made it to the edge of the Trollshaws. There was much commenting on the surroundings and weather and jesting with each other along the way, the music and wine once we settled down for a rest.

I've still not been to a HoF event. And some of these other events...well...there's a couple of people I don't click with...so hmm. :P
