  1. [!] A paper is pinned to the Brandybrook Notice Board! T’a Ninth Annual Brandybrook Drinking Night! ~Micah’s speech during Rollo’s Wake!~ T’is been a while since we last had a good ol’ Drinking Night in Brandybrook. Sure, we had plenty o’ other gatherings, but none o’ them were Drinking Nights! Thus, I see it fit to bring back the ancient halfling tradition dating back to the Dunshire days o’ me youth! O’ course, we ought to pray to Lord Knox more as well, thus we’ll be having a good ol’ Knoxist prayer at the end of this Drinking Night on top o’ the drinking! What: A drinking party + Knoxist prayer right afterwards! Where: ’n Brandybrook, the home o’ the halflings, right next ter Aegrothond! When: Close ter the end o’ this Elven Week ‘n the beginning of the next! ((Saturday, September 14th, 4 PM EST)) Knox bless us all! Glory ter t’a wee! -Pervinca Driftwood [!] The paper ends with the official seal of Brandybrook
  2. *On a quiet morning in the Golden City of Ves, in hobbles an old little halfling. For having just came from the road his uniform is spotless. As he enters the city, he rests for a moment, leaning on his cane. He has come here to fulfil his family’s lifelong duties: To serve as a butler for the ruling classes of the realm. * The Origins of House Proudfoot and the Lineage of Orenian Butlers The Proudfoot’s can be traced back to the founding families of Dunwood in the realm of Aegis. Back then Halflings knew very little of the world living a quiet and peaceful life. Wilfred Proundfoot, first of his name was known his large appetite and generous donations of food to the poor, as long as he could eat with them. He traveled Aegis and saw, and ate, many things on his travels. During his life he befriended Daniel Horen who was still but a young man. He developed a great friendship with the House of Horen and pledged his loyalty to the family in perpetuity. Later in life during the writings of Everard I Hightower he is referred to as Saint Wilfred, The God’s Stomach. This jest was most likely spawned from Wilfred’s friendship with Saint Daniel, and his grand appetite. Saint Wilfred Proudfoot I ~ Historians Dispute what Century he lived ~ Is believed to be the first to put to use Bread and Wine in religious ceremonies As a descendent of the Saint Wilfred Proudfoot, Thomas Proudfoot was no stranger to humans, later in his life he found himself living in the city of Al’khazar which was quite uncommon for Halflings at the time. He employed himself as a cook in the kitchens of the Keep. His position however did not last, as the Phoenix Revolution had begun and in a ransack of the keep, he was injured and later died from those injuries. His family fled and eventually settled in Renatus in Asulon. Thomas Proudfoot ~ 1200-1341 ~ Served King Enor Sheffield, was killed during the Phoenix Revolution Thomas Proudfoot had a son, whom at the start was always interested in the duties of the castle that Thomas had. His name was Wilfred, second of his name. Wilfred grew up in the Kingdom of Renatus. When Godfrey of house Horen became King, Wilfred was appointed a butler of the castle. As the Kingdom of Renatus became the Holy Oren Empire and Godfrey went from King to Emporer, he remained close friends with Wilfred. Even at one point granting Wilfred the title of Knight after Wilfred won a joust against a young Hightower knight. As Godfrey had grown accustomed to various wild titles Wilfred had soon accumulated titles such as Grand Chancellor of Butlery, Grand High Royal Imperial Butler, and various other spins on the name. Although he was proud of his title he was even more proud of the work he had done and the loyalty he had for the family. He later went on to serve Prince Richard Horen III and King James Hightower II and their families. Having lived to the age of 155, it is written that Wilfred died peacefully in his sleep, surrounded by his children. Sir Wilfred Reginald Thomas Proudfoot II ~ 1260-1415 ~ Grand High Royal Imperial Butler, Knight of the Holy Orenian Empire Served Emperor Godfrey I, Prince Richard Horen III, and King James Hightower II Horace Proudfoot, grandson of Wilfred II, denied the family trade of butlery having seen the chaos that the Human Kingdoms continued to fall through. He served as a sailor most of his life and toward the end of his life when his legs did not serve him, he worked as a tailor for the peasant folk. He settled in Brandy brook for the rest of his days. Horace Proudfoot ~ 1510-1655 ~ Served as a sailor and traveling Tailor Since his Father, Horace Proudfoot had refused the family occupation. Wilfred III did not have childhood education in the art of Butlery. Now in Present time, Wilfred Proudfoot has spent nearly 100 years studying the arts of Butlery, from the Orenian style, to the Renatian School of Butlerly developed by his great grandfather. Wilfred the Third refused to serve as a butler until he was sure that he was ready. Now he prepares to enter his first service under the King Adrian I of Kaedrin. Wilfred Horace Proudfoot III ~ 1634 – Present ~ Butler to King Adrian I of Kaedrik *Wilfred Horace Proudfoot III hobbles up the step toward the Castle in Ves. He stands in the shoes of his ancestors, ready to continue the legacy. *

  8. So I’m fairly new to all of this and I’m working on making my first character. I’m wanting to make a Halfling with a bit of a twist and I was hoping I could get some help on this. Especially related to the location in which they come from. I checked the wiki for Halflings and found that all of the locations there are listed as no longer around so I though it best to check here to see what I can find out
  9. [!] A note is pinned to the Brandybrook Notice Board Brandybrook Shogging Night! ~Shogging in Brandybrook!~ ’T ‘as been quite ah while since we’ve shogged properly here ‘n Brandybrook! T’is time for another Night o’ Shogging, this time nay in ah competitive format! Instead o’ drinking booze this night, we’ll be shogging, thus making this a Shoggin’ Night instead o’ ah Drinkin’ one!

Long Live Brandybrook! Glory ter t’a Wee! -Pervinca Driftwood, Customs & Excise Official of Brandybrook [!] The note ends with the official seal of Brandybrook!
  10. ~The Driftwood Family!~ The Driftwood family is a newer family within Brandybrook, for it initially consisted of none but Deek Driftwood, and expanded from there with his recent marriage to Pervinca. The Driftwoods are a family of fisher halflings who supply Brandybrook with a never ending supply of fresh fish, ensuring that the halflings never run low on meat! On top of their frequent fishing, the Driftwoods are known for their skill in sailing, for they manage the Spicy Shrimp ship and thus the entire navy of Brandybrook! ~Driftwood Culture & Traditions~ In order to be considered a full adult within the Driftwood family, a lil’un must catch a fish larger than they are without help from others. This is not too much of any issue for most Driftwoods, for fish around Brandybrook that are larger than the average halfling are quite common. Another important tradition for the Driftwood family is marriage. Driftwood children are expected to get married soon after becoming an adult, with pre-marital relations discouraged. This is in stark contrast with the rest of the halflings, who have grown more loose on marriage in recent times. Finally, a good Driftwood must never chop down a tree. That task is to be done by other halflings, for the Driftwoods are halflings of the sea, not of the forest. ~Driftwood Appearance~ Driftwoods are usually on the shorter end of the halfling race, rarely taller than 2’10’’. Their hair ranges from blonde to black, and their eyes are usually some shade of blue. Their feet are much hairier than other halflings, often times covered in as much hair as their heads! ~Driftwood Religion~ The Driftwoods are devout followers of Arugula, the Squid Lord. They believe that the worship of Arugula will grant them a larger catch and safety from the dangers of the sea, and thus they are known to build shrines in Arugula’s honor. While Knoxism, aspectism, and other religions do exist within the Driftwood family, they are less common than usual. ~Family Recipes~ Driftwood Salmon is a dish that cannot be beat! The recipe is a closely guarded secret by the Driftwood family, but it’s speculated that it involves some amount of foreign lemons and (obviously) salmon On top of this, the Driftwoods acquired the recipe for Swammie Booze from Rollo Applefoot (probably by stealing it). While the booze is funky and bizarre, the Driftwoods seem to like it for some reason. ~Driftwood Family Tree~ ~A room within the Driftwood family burrow!~ Pervinca Driftwood, wife of Deek – ALIVE Deek Driftwood, husband of Pervinca – ALIVE Jackwise Driftwood, son of Deek – ALIVE ((not played))
  11.

However, ter mix things up this time, we ought to play DARTS and the ancient halfling game o’ SHOGGING as well as just drinking! Nay reason not ter ‘ave a variety of merrymaking! What: A Drinking Night full of booze and all sorts of fun, with Shogging an’ Darts as well! When: Close to the end o’ this Elven Week and the beginnin’ o’ the next!

  14. [!] A note is pinned to the Brandybrook Notice Board! Brandybrook Wedding! ~Deek proposing to Pervinca!~ Hear ye! Hear ye! T’is time for a marriage in Brandybrook, the first we’ve ever had in this village!

  15. [!] A blood-drenched news article could be found floating through the wind. BIGGUN TERRORISM DESTROYS BRANDYBROOK INFRASTRUCTURE! ~The bridge across the Dinkle River, lovingly created by Cherry, has been destroyed in a vicious attack!~ BREAKING NEWS! Just this morning, on 3/17/23, us wee folks of Brandybrook woke up to the sounds of an inferno. Once the blaze died down and the smoke obscuring our view cleared, it became obvious that something was missing.... OUR BRIDGE! Local authorities have blamed the Ithelanen clan, led by Evar’tir Ithelanen, for the attacks, and warn Brandybrook citizens to avoid the other side of the river until the problem has been dealt with. [!] The message from Rollo Applefoot, Thain of Brandybrook, would be reprinted below... "TO THE WEEFOLK OF BRANDYBROOK, BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR EVAR'TIR ITHELANEN AND OTHERS OF THE ITHELANEN CLAN. THEY HAVE CAUSED THIS DESTRUCTION OF OUR VILLAGE, AND ARE TO BE SHUNNED AND STAYED AWAY FROM. THEY APPERENTLY HAVE A CAMP NEARBY OUR BEACH ON THE OTHER SIDE OF DINKLE RIVER, AN' THEY BE SOME TYPE OF CRAZY BATSHIT DEMON WANNABE SUMMONERS. STAY AWAY FROM THEM, THE THAINS AND SHERIFF WILL SOON HANDLE THIS ALL. KNOX BLESS WEEFOLK AYE AYE AYE." ~Could these ordinary woods be swarming with Terrorists?~ It is believed that the Ithelanen clan has a camp on the other side of the river, presumably used as a base for their nefarious activities. It is recommended that every Brandybrook citizen stay alert in case of future attacks, for until the Sheriff and Thains deal with this camp there will likely be more attacks on our village. If any halflings, bigguns, or other creatures have information concerning the Ithelanen clan or their attacks on Brandybrook, please notify us immediately! 3/17, NEVER FORGET! [!] The news article ends with the official seal of Brandybrook.
  16. [!] A piece of paper is nailed to the Brandybrook Notice Board. The Second Annual Brandybrook Drinking Night! ~The halflings of Brandybrook gather by the docks as a part of an event~ The past Brandybrook Drinking Night was modest, yet still succesfully as far as oi’m concerned! It did its duty well and had us drinking booze for some time instead of getting involved in other shenanigans. Thus, we are to hold another, exactly the same as the first, and keep up this tradition ‘till the ends of time! What: A drinking party! Where: In Brandybrook, the home of the halflings. More specifically, within the Toady Traveler Tavern located near the village’s entrance! When: Near t’a end of the Elven Week! ((Saturday, July 6th, 3 PM EST)) Who’s Invited?: All halflings and friends of the wee-folks! Others are allowed to participate so long as they don’t disturb the peace! Long Live Brandybrook! Glory ter t’a Wee! -Pervinca Applebrook, Customs & Excise Official of Brandybrook [!] The paper ends with the official seal of Brandybrook.
  17. [!] A scrap of paper is pinned to the Brandybrook Notice Board Brandybrook Drinking Night! ~Halflings and Sailors chat in the Toady Traveler Tavern!~ We’ve gone far ter long without any good ol’ drinking in this village o’ Brandybrook! Our throats grow raw ‘n sore with all of the boring chit-chat we do day in day out, our feet grow tired with all the wanderin’ we do ‘round the neighboring lands, ‘n our hands grow tired frem the constant poundin’ of the local Gnomish population. It’s time fa us to relax and drink to our hearts content, for there’s nay better way to wash away yer miseries than ter drink! Also, all who attend this will beh given FREE STUFF since oi have too many materials on me hands ‘n naybody ter give ‘em to! What: A drinking party!

Glory ter t’a Wee! -Pervinca Applebrook, Customs & Excise Official of Brandybrook. ((Yes, I will actually be able to show up for my own event this time (unless something random pops up, of course.
  18. [!] An advertisement would be spread across the wind or found pinned to the walls of taverns. Danger! Adventure! Glory! ~Darkmyst Bridge, leading to the horrifying swamps of Darkmyst~ For far too long have the threats in Darkmyst been building up under our noses! Hidden beneath those dark trees lies a plethora of unknown creatures, mystical sites, and forbidden treasures, and thus I, the greatest Adventurer of all and Sheriff of Brandybrook, am calling all adventurous souls to my side in order to remove the Darkmyst threat once and for all! Dealing with the threats of Darkmyst will be no easy feat, and thus any allies in my struggle will be appreciated! I shall thus be forming a COALITION OF SWAMPERS to properly adventure the snot out of these pesky woods! These Bog Bullies shall join forces to drive back the evils of Darkmyst! ~The Spicy Shrimp, the three-masted ship-of-the-line complete with a kitchen, sick bay, dining hall, on-board egg supply, crews’ quarters, and multiple baslitae~ Me and my crew of the Spicy Shrimp are already taking part in this, so why nay ye?

  20. [!] A note is written for Deek Driftwood Weh ‘ave ter many bigguns on our ship! We’re gonna sink if we don’t kick some of them off! While having bigguns around beh noice sometimes, right now there be too many o’ them and we cannae handle ‘em all! How are we gonna sail when the bigguns ‘r so numerous they nearleh blot out the sun? With love, Pervinca Applebrook
  21. [!] A document is pinned to the wall of the Cloud Temple for all new’uns to see. Golden Age! Oi may nay be ah very important halfling, ‘n oi may have just moved here from Sutica, but darn are we having good times right now! Things beh much better than they were in the Dunshire oi remember from me youth! T’a village is always full to the brim with smilin’ faces, and loads of fun things happen all the time! I believe we’ve entered ah new Golden Age, similar if nay greater than the ol’ Golden Age we had back in Branborough. Evereh month t’a village sees six ‘er seven halflings at the very least, ‘n biggun visitors are more common than ever! We live prosperously withou’ the fears of war that ravage the rest o’ Arcas, and our culture continues to expand, grow, and even influence bigguns ter some extent! So come on down t’a Brandybrook for some good ol’ fun, some good booze, and ter be free from conflict and strife forevahmore! Praised be this new halfling village! Oi wish I started living in ‘t sooner! -Pervinca Applebrook [!] The paper ends with the official seal of Brandybrook. Pervinca probably stole it from somewhere. OOC Right now the halfling activity is the highest it’s ever been in 2-3 years. The percentage of new player applications that are halflings are almost as numerous as those that are Orcs. We have reliably active leadership that’s able to plan fun events every day, and plenty of halflings to join in on these events. Thus, it’s fair to say that the halflings of Brandybrook are experiencing similar prosperity and relevance to what the halflings of Branborough had in 2012, back during the so-called “Halfling Golden Age” that all the old halflings remember so fondly. While we still have things to improve in the village, more events to plan, and more culture to develop, I see no reason for us to fail in these tasks, especially since Summer Vacation is just around the corner (or already here) and finals are wrapping up. If you wish to join as and roleplay in Brandybrook, the village is open to visitors at any time, even for non-halflings! We’d love to see ya! -jumperhand3
  22. [!] Two letters are mailed to Rollo and Harold Applefoot respectively Make meh run yer economy! While wanderin’ round Brandybrook, oi noticed that the Excise ‘n Customs Office ‘ad naybodeh ter fill t’eh position! Since the office already be there, why nay let me become Brandybrook’s first ever Customs ‘n Excise official! Oi could manage all o’ the market stalls ‘n make sure they beh run by the correct people, as well as negotiate trade deals with bigguns tha’ll ‘elp get us more iron ‘n such! Oi even got Deek Driftwood, t’a Sheriff, ter support me in my bid to become a government official! Why nay let me run these markets? -Pervinca Applebrook.
  23. [!] A poorly written and grammatically flawed propaganda leaflet would be flying through the wind. AH MESSAGE TER ALL BIGGUNS ~The PROUD and MIGHTY Brandybrook Navy prepares to set sail towards uncharted waters, led by Sheriff and Captain Deek Driftwood~ ((yes, we’re aware that the dock looks bad)) Madness has claimed all of the biggun lands with all this new talk of war ‘n crud! Us halflings, being the greatest warriors for peace ever to be known, must stop this before it begins! Even more terrible is the lack of pipe smoking and festival-hosting in biggun lands! Not only are these bigguns nay living peacefully, they are nay having fun either! Dear Bigguns, if you keep on having war and nay having any good ol’ pipe-smokin’ festival-hostin’ fun, us halflings will march on ye biggun lands and DESTROY YOU with our peaceful ways once and for all! Surrender at once, for you have nay chance against our superiors forces of goodness! Now that we have ah fully functional volleyball net and more halflings than ye can count on two hands, our way o’ life will sureleh conquer t’eh evil biggun ways of injustice and wrongdoing! Surrender a’ once ‘n submit ter peace lest the halflings win over yer peasant population and force ye ter live happily and peacefully once again! Thus, us halflings submit t’a following demands: ALL BIGGUN NATIONS MUST STOP FIGHTING EACH OTHER IMMEDIATELY ALL BIGGUN NATIONS MUST ENCOURAGE THEIR POPULATION TO SMOKE, EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY ALL BIGGUN NATIONS MUST STRIVE TOWARDS HAPPINESS INSTEAD O’ IMPERIALISTIC AIMS If t’eh aforementioned demands are nay fulfilled, us wee folks will be vereh vereh mad! We’d take our ship ‘n sail over ter ya cities ‘n hurl cakes a’ them ‘till yer so busy eating our food yeh forge’ abou’ the war! ‘N order ter avoid such ah terrible fa’e, surrender ter t’eh halflin’s a’ once ‘n lay down yah weapons ferevah more!

  24. ~*<>*~ The National Shogging League ~*<>*~ Basic Rules & Background Shogging is a Halfling sport, or game, which has persisted throughout the ages. It’s name comes from the two words ‘Shovel’ and ‘Logs’ from it’s two primary ingredients. Shogging was created in Branborough by the Elder Halfling Tibb Fairfield when the village was under a draught of boredom, and a new game was needed. In the game of shogs, two logs of equal length (Generally three Halfling feet, or three ‘blocks’ as bigg’uns call them) are put into a body of water. Two opponents (usually Halflings) will climb on top of either log, and place a carved pumpkin on their heads. When the signal is given, both players attempt to shove the other off of their log using a wooden shovel. Falling into the water counts as an ‘out’. The game is usually played as ‘best two out of three’ in points. The Goal There are four teams, each team will be assigned an opponent team to begin the season. The two winning teams will then face each other. The winner of the final match will be given the championship title. Championship team will win: The Bucca Cup, And have their names added to it 500 minas (split among teammates) The runner ups will win: 200 minas (split among teammates) The two losing teams will both win: 100 minas (split among teammates) Teams Illegal Moves/Tactics Sign Up Info: Primary Shogger Name: Secondary Shogger Name Desired Team Color: -------------------------------------------- Additional inf: Halflings get first claim on signup, other race only if we have space Equipment is supplied Bucca D Willowswamp will be referee Times may be negotiated ((OOCly for player to work out!))
  25. ((partial inspiration: https://lotr.fandom.com/wiki/Pervinca_Took )) Pervinca Applebrook Age: 34 Race: Halfling Height: 2’7’’ Weight: Around 70 pounds. Hair Color: Reddish-Blonde Eye Color: Dark blue Origins: Her mother was an unknown barmaid of the Drunken Duck Tavern, and her father was Agobard Applebrook, a son of Merridolph Applebrook himself. She lived in Dunshire during her childhood, playing with the Applefoot children and learning how to play the flute. However, Agobard died of consumption before Pervinca was old enough to fend for herself, forcing Pervinca and her half-brother, Pelegren, to leave Dunshire in search of care, seeing as none of the other halfling families would adopt them. They wandered across Arcas in search of work, family, food, etc, splitting up in the process. After some travel, Pervinca would stumble across the trade city of Sutica, where she would work as a barmaid in order to earn her sustenance. She encountered the Foxburr halfling family there, who took her under their wing and taught her how to be proper even inside a biggun settlement. Having finished her childhood and found a family in Sutica, Pervinca would remain in Sutica as the descendents moved on to Arcas. In Arcas, however, the Foxburr family began to have issues. The parents of the family were growing old, and none of the Foxburr children were getting married due to the lack of halflings in Sutica. Eventually, they were unable to provide for Pervinca anymore, and she had to leave once more in search of a livelihood. Personality + Traits: A wee li’l Applebrook used to hard times, Pervinca is willing to do almost anything if it will save herself and kin from pain, for such actions are how she squeezed by in biggun lands when she was younger. She acts first, and thinks later, not spending more than a moment pondering any major decision. She is somewhat uneducated, as the Foxburrs and Applebrooks were not good at homeschooling, and thus her speech is cruder than most other halflings. Her writing is also crude and lopsided, and she has trouble reading books without pictures in them. Her few skills include bartending, basic farming knowledge, and sewing. Most of the clothing she wears she created on her own, a fairly impressive feat considering the lack of materials she had access to. While her farming skills may be rusty, she’s more than capable of producing food to feed herself given enough farmland. Her bartending, while decent, is nothing out of the ordinary and only let her barely squeak by on her own. She can create basic low-quality drinks as a part of her bartender gig, but fails miserably at any attempt to create something fancy. OOC: I’m going to try and rebuild the ol’ Applebrook family as it was before the Applefoots took over everything, seeing as the Applefoots are more than capable of staying relevant on their own right now. Now that micbox and I are both playing Applebrooks again, hopefully we’ll be able to revive the family.
