  1. The tale of a tail

    As merry Halflings played their games, smoked their pipes and drank, well... Their drinks, an odd, yet old Halfling sat alone under the leaves of an old willow tree. His pipe had faded into darkness and had since gone cold as the wind swept the smoke up past the tree's canopy and into the drifting air above. His drink, his favorite... Shortoak Stout still sat full, yet to be touched as a few of the nearby insects had since gathered at the top of the mug seemingly sipping the liquid, they were in for a good night he thought. The peculiar Halfling, a familiar face if you will had since lost his youthful spark. His smile had vanished, replaced by a fake, forced smile and laugh at the few passers-by. The druid's banjo had been well kept however, he seemed as though he cared for it very much, apart from the snapped string on the shaft which was uncommon as he enjoyed to play. His age finally began to show with each passing day. His best friend had died by his side overnight as the slept under the protection of Bucky's soon to be the final resting place. Bucky, the ale drinking, pipe smoking and trouble making rodent seemed to be holding Larry up all these years, pushing him along, forcing him to be his better self, maybe that's what finally broke the camel's back, or in this case the beaver's tail. His old age finally caught up with him, it was apparent, for a long time despite the obvious signs Larry did not want to believe. As he thought of his time, Larry Shortoak could recall many a village, many new faces but always one familiar best friend to be by his side each and every step of the way for almost as long as he could remember. Bucky, his trusted Beaver companion, one that needed no explanation to most as he was mischevious, crude, playful and caring. He was stubborn, a poor alcoholic and most of the day he could be seen smoking on his pipe or gnawing on a Halfling-sized tree branch of a sapling so that Larry could get it for him, he never complained. His favorite joke that he loved to pull was making bigguns believe that Larry was, in fact, a crazy old Halfling speaking to an oversized rodent, he always loved their stunned reactions to the shouting Halfling. The old Halfling, creaking as his joints bent to lower his companion down into the hole he had just dug below the hanging arms of the weeping willow. He allowed a tear to fall from his eye, down his cheek and eventually off his chin and onto the dirt below which he then slowly moved to cover the overweight rodent. As he shoveled the final few mounds of dirt into the hole, he reached into his shirt pocket and lowered a small sack of pipeweed and a heavily gnawed pipe, one obviously intended for a Beaver due to the few chips it missed. "Aspec's guide ye tubby, may the smoke take ye the righ' way!" he shouted up into the sky. As he leaned back against the willow Larry picked up the mug, said... "Cheers!" He brushed the insects aside ever so gently and began to drink the mug of the stout, pouring a small amount onto the mound he sat beside, the Halfling knew he would be here a while reminiscing of the youthful days. ~*~

  4. 6.0 halfling village ideas thread

    In Willow Hollow there was a double gate at the back end of the village near where the stables were. It was usually closed due to it rarely ever being occupied and to get in it was often quicker to run around to the front rather than attempting to send a bird. I remember it very clearly due to the endless discussions I had regarding getting perms for it. Ahhh, the memories. You're welcome @_Jandy_ ~*~
  5. Feel the Bromance

    Just wanted to make a quick post to my Halfling neighbours and friends and say that I love each and every one of you. You have kept me sane on this server, you have kept me around on this server and you are what brings me back each and every time despite my best attempts to quit without another word. This community is so friendly and energetic and never takes things too seriously and I will always main a Halfling and only ever play a Halfling. "If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world." I also had to post it in here because people might have thought I was joking if I put it in the memes section. <3 ~*~
  6. New Village: Wait for 6.0, or now?

    I wasn't offended at all, just a bit confused as you thought that was the main part of what I had said. I don't particularly understand why you are more focused on the gif in this situation even though it kind of is relevant as it is saying you can learn from the past but that is beside the point. The reason that it "takes up all of Kasfer's time" is because he is an archdruid for the druids and is enjoying the RP experience/s that he is getting from that group of people. If Kasfer had a place maybe a touch closer than Pendlemere he may be there even more regularly and could bring some of the druids along whenever he returns which would increase activity before 6.0. It would also expand the horizon for more people to create Halfling persona's if they see a fun group that is active. Even though I am a rare sighting amongst the Halflings due to the little amount I play I would like to suggest moving based solely on activity.
  7. New Village: Wait for 6.0, or now?

    ~*~ In saying that the last village we had on Vailor was Willow Hollow where if you stood in the right spot and squinted you could see a druid grove. It didn't cause anything bad to happen then to our culture and I doubt it would ruin it if we happened to be near another. My 2 cents from playing a Halfling for a while. ~*~
