I think Falathlorn Day might be LOTRO’s first cross-server player created event – or at least the first one since I’ve been taking part in such. By that I mean, not just that players from other servers roll an alt to attend as they do for, e.g., Weatherstock or Ales and Tales, but that the event was designed to take place on any and all servers all at once. Three servers took part in it today, and it tended to be kinship based on each server, with the Rangers of Ithilien hosting parties at three members’ houses on Elendilmir, the Tinnu uin Galadhrim on Nimrodel at the homes of Tuiliel and Linett, and the Lonely Mountain Band on Landroval at our kinhouse, Aerlinnbar. While I wish we had seen more participation from outside of the kinships (although there was a bit more of that before we all started recruiting each other’s cross-server alts…heh. ), the parties were a great success, with creative, fun events that varied from house to house enough that even those of us like Gaiagil and I who attended on all three servers did not get bored. So I think the event fulfilled its purpose of showing what can be done in the housing areas and, hopefully, showing that they are important to players!
Gaiagil hosted the first party at her home in Merillant. My Elendilmirian alt, Linise, stopped by the Bird and Baby just this morning to learn how to fish when she heard that Gaiagil planned to give a tour of the best fishing spots in her neighbourhood!
