  3. [!] 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.
  4. [!] 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.
  5. [!] 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! Where: In Brandybrook, next to t’a Elves in Aegrothond! ‘T will take place in the Toady Traveler Tavern o’ course! When: Near t’a end of the Elven Week! ((Saturday, June 29th, 3 PM EST)) Who’s Invited: All halflings ‘n the friends of halflings as well! (Others be tolerated too so long as they ain’t a bother!) Long Live Brandybrook! 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.
  6. [!] 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? Join us today! -Deek Driftwood ((Link to discord: https://discord.gg/Db6ceK )) ((made on @Porkgasm’s behalf))
  7. [!] A poorly drawn advertisement is found in Brandybrook and the Cloud Temple. Cheap Stuff! Come ter Brandybrook for some amazin’ prices on amazin’ things! T’is beh all we’re selling as of now! Stall #1: Empty Nay thin's beh sold ‘ere. Move along. Stall #2: Wee Ol’ Quest Guild Oak Logs: .3 minas each Bread: .3 minas each Stall #3: Pervinca’s Cheap Goods Hay Bales: .3 minas each Baked Potatoes: .1 minas each Sugarcanes: .1 minas each Stall #4: Deek’s Baked Goods Bread: .4 minas each Stall #5: LaDeux’s Knickknacks Bread: .1 minas each Birch Boats: 10 minas each Raspberry Mead: 30 minas each Stall #6: Liesl’s Tinkery Nuffin’ be sold here Weh also have two li’l side carpets for use as shops too!

[!] The advertisement ends with the official seal of Brandybrook.
  8. [!] 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
  9. [!] 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
  10. [!] 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.
  11. [!] 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! T’a Prank War that would result o’ nay following our demands would never let ye see the end of it! [!] The leaflet finishes with a single signature and an Official Brandybrook Seal that appears to have been stolen. Signed, Deek Driftwood, Sheriff o’ Brandybrook. ((We’ll be doing another Pumpkin Raid at 2 PM EST tomorrow using the Salty Salmon boat))
  12. ~*<>*~ 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!))
  13. ((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.
  14. [!] Some commotion would be happening in Brandybrook ~The halflings of Brandybrook enjoying the second Toady Traveler Happy Hour!~ It was a beautiful day in the Brandybrook, as it is oft to be. The birds sang their lovely little songs, the halflings ran about enjoying their daily lives, and all was merry and good. Several halflings had gathered in the tavern to drink, and exchanged songs, stories, booze, and other things with each other to pass the time. They laughed, giggled, hiccuped, and had a grand ol’ time together. Several bigguns came and went during this time, as did several halflings. However, those who choose to stay in the tavern for an extended period of time soon grew bored, and talks began to focus around more adventurous things... Eventually, it was decided that a second Pumpkin Raid to rival the first would be declared, and that the halflings and their biggun friends would set out to spread peace and love immediately. While none of them knew it at the time, this Pumpkin Raid would be their demise... ~Preparing for the Pumpkin Raid!~ Soon, Brandybrook was filled with the sounds of pumpkin-carving, shovel-making, and excited chatter concerning the Pumpkin Raid about to occur. The tavern had been completely vacated in order to better prepare for the Pumpkin Raid, for preparing pumpkins is best done outside, and bigguns and halflings alike were equiped with all they’d need for their journey to save Arcas from the brutal war. ~Leaving Brandybrook!~ While few in number and small in stature, the halflings made up for this with their strong spirit and devotion to the cause of peace. They’d find themselves traveling from one end of Arcas to the other (quite a long journey for such a small creature!), meet several friends, and have plenty of adventure indeed! From Sutica (where a few bigguns were recruited to the cause) to Urguan (where the halflings were nearly killed by Dwarves) and finally to Renatus far away from the halfling homeland. Such a merry band it was! A line of halflings and bigguns marching across the roads of Arcas, all wearing pumpkins on their heads to tell the Pumpkin Raiders apart from those who must be taught the ways of peace! Never once did they lay a finger upon the bigguns they met, and never once did they think of going home no matter how difficult the road ahead became. ~One of the Pumpkin Raid’s several “Snack Breaks” where hungry Pumpkin Raiders stop to eat a snack!~ ~Trying to convert a biggun to the ways of peace in Sutica!~ ~Marching through the woods whilst traveling to Urguan!~ ~The discovery of the so-called “Pumpkin Trees” was a great boost to the Pumpkin Raider morale!~ ~Arriving at Urguan!~ ~Confronting the Urguan soldiers!~ ~Helping Thyme with his injury!~ ~Leaving Urguan!~ While Sutica had been accepting of the Pumpkin Raiders and their crusade for peace, the Dwarves of Urguan were much harder to crack.... the Pumpkin Raiders were split up, lost, injured, or in general disarray for much of their time there. Thyme, one of the Pumpkin Raiders, was hit by a Dwarven sword and had to be carried out of Urguan until he regained the ability to walk, and none of the Dwarves joined the cause apart from a child. Only slightly discouraged by their lack of success in Urguan, the Pumpkin Raiders would soon move on to a larger target; Renatus! Renatus was not too far from Urguan and was taking part in the recent war, and thus was chosen as the site where the Pumpkin Raiders would try and spread their values of PEACE, LOVE, and of course, PUMPKINS! ~Traveling to Renatus!~ ~Arriving at the gates of Renatus!~ When the halfling Pumpkin Raiders arrived at Renatus, the bigguns there were not amused! They quickly donned their armor, unsheathed their swords, and demanded that the Pumpkin Raiders leave or all be slaughtered in cold blood! The halflings, while understanding the threats of the Renatians, remembered all the previous times that Renatus had been good to them and persisted in their efforts to spread peace regardless. Tensions soon rose as the Renatian soldiers marched out onto the bridge, pushing the Pumpkin Raiders away from the gates and demanding that they all leave. No matter how much the Pumpkin Raiders insisted they were a peaceful gathering, the Renatians insisted that the halflings would kill them all if they didn’t force them to leave, and thus continued in their efforts to stomp out the peaceful pumpkin movement. ~Renatian soldiers marching onto the bridge!~ ~The Pumpkin Raiders are forced back as a huge quantity of armed bigguns threatens them with violence!~ ~An image of the bridge seconds before the Renatians charge the Pumpkin Raiders.~ ~Halflings running for their lives!~ What had begun as a few slashes at pumpkin-wearing protesters soon escalated as more and more Renatians joined in on the slaughter of the halflings and their Pumpkin allies. Soon, the halflings were in a full retreat away from the bridge with a horde of soldiers following them. Almost without any warning, the efforts of the Renatians to rid their lands of the Pumpkin Raiders turned into a massacre as halflings began falling to their blades left and right. ~Daisy Applefoot being hunted down by Renatians!~ Daisy Applefoot, a prominent halfling of Brandybrook and one of the organizers of the initial Great Arcas Pumpkin Raid, was caught up in the chaos as it unfolded. She tried to peel away from the roads and run into the woods, hoping that it would save her life, but a Renatian soldier keep on chasing her no matter how hard she ran. Eventually, the Renatian soldier stopped chasing her, and Daisy took a moment to eat. She kept on running away from Renatus, thinking about how she ought to save her life all the while. As far as she knew, Renatian soldiers had noticed her as she ran away. She spotted a cliff where she could dive into the nearby river, and jumped off of it in hopes of swimming away to safety and confusing the soldiers chasing her. SPLAT! Daisy Applefoot missed her jump and landed face-first into a ledge overlooking the cliff. Her frail body, already damaged from an arrow and two sword slashes, quickly crumpled under her own weight and left her there to die. Nobody was there to hear her cries for help. Nobody saw her as she slowly bled out by the river, her blood coloring it red. Nobody saw the life in her eyes fade into darkness as her lungs filled up with blood instead of air. She would not be returning to Brandybrook. Her children would never see their mother again. The Applefoot burrow would nevermore be graced by Daisy’s smile. Never.

AND TO THE MIRE, HE RETURNS ___________________________________ [!] A depiction of Kaer Glythen, the Aeldinic seat of House Grimm The war between the feuding Imperial Houses of Horen and Marna has claimed many lives as of recent, and families all throughout the two imperiums now grieved for lost sons and daughters - taken all too soon in the conflict. One such family is the noble House of Grimm, its members having learned of its patriarch’s death in the most horrible of ways; The Baron’s corpse was shipped to the stone-maken walls of Reza, confined to a wooden box devoid of any means to initially identify him. Eventually, however, upon reaching hold of Lady Grimm, authorities were able to properly identify the bloodied husk as her spouse - a man who had so chivalrously lived past his prime. As the family grieved together and sorted through the late patriarch’s belongings, a piece of parchment was found. On the paper lay dozens of crossed out lines of text, all discarded before the middle of the page. In there, a handful of lines remained, writing comparable to chicken scratch, though legible nonetheless. I remember my arrival upon Atlas hazily, though some memories do not escape me. The overwhelming fear of leaving my parents, and my eldest siblings, on their lonesome in Venerra. Thankfully, I had my sister Alana by my side throughout the voyage. Tempests raged about us as we ventured further into the murky waters, our vessel soon being consumed by a grey mist -- restricting our vision for a good while. In the days following, we could make out a jagged mountain ahead; Overjoyed, Alana and I leaped into the frigid waters and gradually arrived to Haeseni shores. As we made our way into the confines of Markev, we were greeted by our cousins, Emma Ludovar and her younger sibling, Jacob. My sister took the path of Chamberlain; I, on the other hand, pursued the path my father had always desired for me - knighthood. And so life went on for me: I had four beauteous children and a supportive consort. Alas, I write this for I have spent fifty-some years alive - Death encroaches, and rapidly at that. Should you find this and I’m deceased, my sole request is to be returned to my grand-nephew, William I of Venerra, where I am to be laid in our family crypts with my father Elias, my mother Selina, and my siblings. To the mire, I return. Credit to Axelu for writing the entire thing, I’m just here for the rep.
  20. ~The Great Applefoot Family~ The Applefoots are one of the newest families of halflings, having been formed by a merger between the Applebrook and Withfoot families when Madeline Applebrook and Harold Withfoot got married (becoming Madeline Applefoot and Harold Applefoot respectively) . The Applefoot family has provided the halflings with great leadership figures from the moment it was created, and it is claimed that the village can never go wrong with an Applefoot in charge, although that claim is still debated. ~The Applefoot Culture and Tradition~ The Applefoots are a simple folk, following all the cultural traditions of the halflings such as not wearing shoes, not using weapons, and not using minas (Mostly). On top of this, Applefoots usually drink to excess whenever possible, and are not ones to back down from a shogging match. From the Applebrook side of the family comes a deep love of orcharding, farming, brewing, and cooking, and from the Withfoot side of the family comes a love of chopping trees, smoking, and eating. With all of these tendencies, the Applefoots are both the ultimate producers of farm goods and the ultimate consumers. Due to this, it is rare to see an Applefoot without food in their hands. ~The Look of the Applefoot~ With a smidge of Dwarven genes coming from Harold Withfoot, the Applefoots stand a bit taller than most other halflings. In weight, however, the Applefoots are slightly less than the average, since the Applebrooks were well known for being slim around the waist. Their eyes are usually blue to blueish green, and their hair is either red or reddish brown. This is assuming that they aren’t a Druid like Harold is, and thus do not have a tree as their body. ~Applefoot Religion~ As for Religion, the Applefoots are a varied bunch. Harold Applefoot, the father of the Applefoot family, is a well-known Druid and worshipper of the Aspects, whereas his wife was a devout Knoxist for all her life. Daisy Applefoot worships the Harvest Spirits and Knox, whereas her sisters and brother are all Knoxists as well. There is no one religion of the Applefoots, and it's likely it will remain that way for centuries. ~Family Recipes~ Since all the old Applebrook and Withfoot recipes have been passed down to the Applefoot family, the Applefoots have a wide variety of foods and boozes to choose from. Here are a few Applebrook Porter: a booze produced with a secret ingredient that only the Applefoots know. It tastes deep and rich, and is very alcoholic. Withfoot Cider: an all around good cider to drink, produced from only the finest apples and a few other ingredients that are also heavily guarded secrets of the Applefoot family. The Applefoot Haggis: Produced by Madeline Applefoot, this haggis was a true masterpiece and can only be made by some of the top chefs in the world. While its recipe is not a secret, it is said that only an Applefoot can produce the haggis the way it was meant to be made. Pipes & Pipeweed: From the Withfoot side of the family came a vast knowledge of pipes and pipeweed. The majority of the halflings' pipeweed comes from the Applefoots, and the Applefoots also make most of the pipes they are smoked in. Bunny Beer: A lovely beer that combines the taste of carrots and melons with the sweetness and darkness of sugar and hops. Named “Bunny Beer” due to the carrots and the hop content. ~Family Heirlooms~ The Applefoots have few heirlooms to their name, sadly. The few that they do have are shrouded in mystery, dirt, or both. These Heirlooms await the day that they are discovered once more. Madeline's Cherry-wood Pipe: Said to be the best pipe ever made, this cherry-wood pipe produced the best smoke-rings, smoke-squares, and smoke-ovals ever seen. When Madeline died, her pipe was lost, presumably dropped into somewhere around the village of Dunshire, where it waits to be uncovered to this day. Rumor has it that Harold Applefoot has recently found the infamous Cherry-wood Pipe, although such rumors are not confirmed The Arcane Pumpkin: This Pumpkin was plucked straight out of the depths of the darkest, coldest, and perilous place in Axios by the ex-Elder Gerald. When Gerald died, the Pumpkin technically should've passed on to his close friend and associate, Merridolph Applebrook, who technically is a part of the Applefoot family ever since the two were merged. Since Merridolph Applebrook is dead and the Pumpkin was stolen, the Arcane Pumpkin's location is completely unknown. It may never be found again, but if it is, it would change halfling life forever. ~Current and Deceased family members~ Merridolph Applebrook, great uncle - DECEASED Harold Applefoot, grandfather - ALIVE Madeline Applefoot, grandmother - DECEASED Merry Applefoot, son of Madeline - DECEASED Carolina Applefoot, daughter of Madeline - PRESUMED DEAD Daisy Applefoot, daughter of Madeline- ALIVE Unnamed twin of Daisy Applefoot, daughter of Madeline - ALIVE ((not played)) Rollo Applefoot, husband of Daisy- ALIVE Almond Applefoot, twin daughter of Daisy - ALIVE Opal Applefoot, twin daughter of Daisy - ALIVE Rolando Applefoot, son of Daisy – DECEASED Liesl Applefoot, daughter of Daisy – ALIVE Ellie Applefoot , daughter of Daisy – ALIVE Unnamed, twin son of Daisy – ALIVE ((not played)) ~How to play an Applefoot~ Just message me or @dkink14 on the forums, and we'll be with you shortly!

  21. This thread is fairly self-explanatory. If you have any screenshots of your adventures in LoTC that you’d like to share with people, just put them all in this thread (along with a short description if you wish). I’ll start by putting some screenshots of the Festival of the Applefoots held in Dunshire on December 16th. Gathering in the Tavern to drink some free booze Playing the Halfling sport of Shogging (Harold Applefoot won the tournament, I think) Hunting for edible Truffles in the No-Booze Forest. Sadly, Hearth Underson brought some booze into No-Booze Forest, causing the Sky-Gods to get angry and spite us all with heavy rain and thunder. Trying to wait out the rain in the Applefoot Burrow (It didn’t work, the roof was too leaky and we ended up leaving and braving the rain regardless) Drinking in the Rosenyr Tavern after fleeing the rain in Dunshire. (We were supposed to be having a feast, but the rain put an end to our ability to gather supplies, so we just went elsewhere) Here’s some other unrelated Screenshots to help kick this off: The Belvitz Technology Expo in celebration of the Belvitz-Holm railway
  22. Gathering by the docks, awaiting the beginning of the Tournament. The first shogging match between Rollo Applefoot and Apollo (Rollo wins!). The shogging match between Daisy Applefoot and Liesl Applefoot (Daisy wins!). The match between the losers of the first two matches (Liesl wins!). The arrival of the Forest Dwarves. The match between the winners of the first two matches (Rollo is disqualified for cheating!). The match between Daisy and Liesl that determines the winner! (Liesl wins!). Giving Liesl Applefoot the prize! Fishing in Dinkle River! The arrival of Arugula, the Squid Lord! Fighting the squid with the power of fishing hooks! Shogging with the Squid Lord. Kerraline must face the squid alone!
  23. Ultimate Guide to the Halfling Race Contents: ~The origin of the Halfling culture ~How to Halfling ~Halflings, what are they? ~Should I play a Halfling? ~How to create a Halfling ~How to talk like a Halfling ~How to join the Halfling village ~How to build a Halfling burrow ~Things to do as a halfling ~The Halfling Festival ~How to Shog ~How to build Halfling villages (Coming soon) ~Other cool Guides The Origin of the Halfling Culture Halflings first came to LOTC as a sub-race of the Humans when sub-races were added to the server during Aegis. They were short with thick-soled hairy feet, fun-loving, and nearly impossible to predict. The first Halflings lived among Human settlements, making a living through thievery and adventure, staying true to their Human sub-race roots. However, one day three Halflings known as Len, Kipp, and Gimblo set out to create the first Halfling village Aegis had ever seen: DUNWOOD! Dunwood soon became the center of the Halfling race, although it was not without competitors. The villages of Thistledown and Greenshire were also founded and had their own populations, leadership, parties, etc. Facing all of these rival villages and the loss of some prominent Halflings, Dunwood soon fell into a state of prolonged inactivity. The village stayed empty for a good while, until one day Petyr (drplat) decided to revive the village with LotC’s most well-known festival ever: DUNFEST! Dunfest brought activity and life back to Dunwood (as well as plenty of people just there for the fireworks), and helped guarantee that the village culture of Dunwood would persist for years to come. The culture of Dunwood was roughly as follows: -Living in circular buildings surrounded by dirt, called “burrows” -Not using swords or other weapons unless absolutely necessary. -Living off of farm produce primarily instead of mining, smithing, lumberjacking, etc. -Being kind to one another, and valuing fun and enjoyment over conflict and intense character building. -Not wearing shoes or hoarding excessive amounts of materials/coinage in one’s burrow. Some time passed, and after 2.0 came to LOTC and the village of Branborough was founded, the halflings took on newer characteristics. Many ex-Undead players flocked to the halfling race after the end of Aegis, yearning for an end to all the conflict and strife they roleplayed constantly as Undead. This led to the supposed “Halfling Golden Age” and firmly set halflings as a sort of “vacation race” to serve as a break for those tired of the rest of LOTC. From there onwards, Halflings have waxed and waned in activity and hilarity. Many Halfling villages, such as Willow Hollow/Reedsborough, Mapleshire, Dunshire, and Gimblewood had stable roleplay and loads of fun, whereas others either only had activity for short periods of time or fell into long droughts of any meaningful content. Currently, the Halflings live in the village of Brandybrook next to Aegrothond under the leadership of their Thain, Rollo Applefoot. How to Halfling Halflings, what are they? ~Merridolph Applebrook, a Halfling from Pendlemere~ “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.” -J.R.R Tolkien Height: Halflings are the smallest race in all of Arcas, ranging from 2 feet 6 inches tall to 3 feet tall. Due to this small size, Halflings make for excellent thieves and poor hand-to-hand fighters. Appearance: Halflings strong, thick, and hairy feet that protects them from harm as they walk barefoot. Their hair ranges from dark browns and reds to light blondes, and almost never sticks up straight. Their eye colors are the same of humans, except that Heterochromia is very common in halflings, with Heterochromia being where the two eyes have different colors. Clothing: Halfling clothes are usually simple wool-cloth or leather garments made by fellow Halflings designed to fit their small stature. Green and Yellow are common colors, followed by brown and the dull white of undyed cloth. Overalls are common in Halflings who farm frequently, and more adventurous Halflings might wear simple capes and hoods. Aging: Halflings are usually around 3 feet tall and have very hairy feet. They grow to maturity at the age of 33, live to 150, and show signs of old age after around 100-120. However, many Halflings artificially increase their lifespan through Druidism or other methods. Characteristics: 1: Halflings love eating food, often eating more than characters twice their size! 2: Halflings love to drink alcohol and smoke pipeweed. Most Halflings build up a strong alcohol tolerance from an early age, and thus beating a Halfling in a Drinking Competition is no easy feat! Meanwhile, pipeweed is just a simple crop similar to tobacco but with less negative health effects. 3: While shunning violence in most situations, Halflings can be quite dangerous if cornered! Nobody wants to face an angry midget with a big stick, of course! 4: While more adventurous/non-village Halflings love to steal from bigger races, Halflings rarely steal from other Halflings. 5: For unknown reasons, Halflings prefer to fight with Shovels whenever forced to fight. For village Halflings this is symbolic of their desire to return to a peaceful life, whereas for Halflings outside of Halfling villages this is due to the desire to whack things real hard with the shovel! 6: Halflings almost never wear armor, partially due to the non-existence of Halfling-sized armor, but also due to Halflings’ peaceable nature. 7: Halflings shun on the use of locks and the hoarding of resources, instead preferring a more open and sharing community. Should I play a Halfling? Halflings aren’t for everyone. Those who enjoy more violent characters will be disappointed in the small size of Halflings, and those who like getting rich will not enjoy the more communal lifestyle of Halflings. However, Halflings still manage to appeal to many by providing things other races cannot. Halflings are never at war, host frequent parties and celebrations, and never cease to amaze with their frequent antics! To re-state Petyr’s words on whether or not you should play a Halfling: Some points to Note: If you really enjoy PvPing, a halfling is probably not for you. If you rage or have a temper, being a halfling is not for you. If you want to be a Mary Sue or be a super duper badass, halflings are not for you. If you get really bored really quickly, halflings might not be for you. If you want to mine, halflings might not be for you. If you are too serious, halflings are not for you. HOWEVER: If you enjoy farming, drinking, fishing, and laughing, be a halfling. If you are tired of powergamers, poor RPers, or just tired of conflict, be a halfling. If you want some peace and some good friends, be a halfling. If you are drawn to short and weak races like hobbits and gnomes, be a halfling. If you like the sound of an Irish accent, be a halfling. If you want a community that is more focused on fun over items, be a halfling. If you've always wanted to live in a hobbit burrow, be a halfling. How to Roleplay a Halfling Roleplaying a Halfling is a unique experience on LOTC. No other race is as short, and no other communities party in such copious quantities. In spite of these differences, halflings are not that difficult to roleplay, and anyone can pull it off with minimal practice and a good bit of pipe smokin’! How to create a Halfling 1: Read up on Halfling lore! A quick glance at this Guide and the wiki page should be plenty! 2: Get a skin! This can be an unused skin from Planetminecraft, a skin you made yourself, or a skin you got a halfling skinner to make for you! Halfling skins aren’t that hard to make, and many non-Halfling skins can be turned into Halfling skins by removing all armor, making it barefoot, and adding in more Halfling-like attire like overalls, for example! 3: Get a name! This can be done by stealing the name of a lesser known hobbit from Lord of the Rings, mashing together some random nature words until you get something that sounds cool (“Stump Mossbranch”, for example), or by visiting https://chriswetherell.com/hobbit where you can generate both male and female Halfling names for free! 4: Create your persona and start RPing! How to talk like a Halfling While no two halfling accents are alike, most share a few common characteristics 1: Don’t use T in the middle or end of a word, replace it with an apostrophe instead. Example: “Tha’s terrible! Translation: “That’s terrible!” 2: Don’t use H at all, unless it’s combined with another consonant. Replace them all with apostrophes as well. Example: “‘elp me! Me ‘airy fee’ be on fire!” Translation: “Help me! My hairy feet are on fire!” 3: Replace -y with -eh if you feel like it, although this is not required. Example: “The mos’ vereh nice ta’ers always be slimeh!” Translation: “The best potatoes are always slimy!” 4: When drunk, sleepy, or otherwise impaired, replace the letter I with “oi” or “o” wherever it seems appropriate. Example: “Oi nay b-beh drunk! T’is os ‘ow oi normalleh speak! Moind yer manners!” Translation: “I’m not drunk! This is how I normally speak! Mind your manners!” 5: -ing turns into -in’ in most accents. Example: “Runnin’, jumpin’, swimmin’, these be me favori’e thin’s!” Translation: “Running, jumping, swimming, these are my favorite things!” 6: Add in your own extra flairs! Many halflings like to replace “the” with “t’eh” or “t’a”, or turn “my” into “me”, “mah”, or “meh”. The more it sounds like something a country bumpkin would say, the better! Example: “Buh wha’ abou’ t’eh droid a’’ack on t’a wookies?” Translation: “But what about the droid attack on the wookies?” How to join the Halfling village 1: Create a Halfling character, duh! (See “How to create a Halfling”) 2: Go to the Halfling village. Sometimes the location of the Halfling village is a secret, and sometimes the Halfling village is right in the open for everyone to see! Whatever the case may be, you’ll eventually find the village is you ask and look around a bit! Check the forums to see if its location is put there, and try to contact the Halflings themselves on the forums if you are still confused! 3: Find an Authority Figure within the village. This is easier said than done, as the Halfling leadership isn’t online all the time (They have to sleep as well ya know)! If none of the Halfling leadership is online, try to find the village’s noticeboard to see if any OOC contacts are listed. If they are, then contact the leadership via the Discord, Skype, Forum Profile, etc. that is listed to try and be online at the same time. 4: Do whatever is required in order to get a home! Normally Halfling burrows are free, but that hasn’t always been the case! Back in Dunwood new Halflings had to fill out some fancy paperwork before being able to live there! Hopefully you will be able to get your burrow in no time flat! How to build a Halfling burrow There are many different ways to make a Halfling burrow. I shall list a few guides below: Here is Petyr’s guide to making burrows way back in Asulon And here’s Larry’s guide to more modern burrows And here’s my own guide on how to make burrows in RP And here’s Faldo’s guide to making burrows Things to do as a Halfling 1: Have parties! You can never party too much as a Halfling! Ideally there should be at least one event, party, or festival every weekend, but if there isn’t one you can easily plan your own! ((See: How to plan Halfling parties)) 2: Fishing, farming, baking, brewing etc. Of course, not every day can be a party, so every Halfling character should have some personal activity they can perform when things are quieter. Whether or not you want to roleplay these activities or do them out of character is up to you. ((For brewing, if you screenshot the roleplay of your booze-making, you could get the Moderators to rename bottles for you)) 3: Small talk, small adventuring. As with all races, the majority of Halfling roleplay consists of relaxed chatter between characters. However, Halfling roleplay is more interesting when there’s a sense of direction and light-hearted urgency to it. If you ever get bored when chatting with your pals, you can simply invent some non-existant problem that has to be solved, be it evil gnomes stealing all of the booze, or chemicals in the water turning all the frogs gay! 4: Event builds within the village! Halfling villages are usually filled with small secrets that can be used for more interesting roleplay. Some secrets contained within Halfling villages include… ~A giant chicken protecting its lair! ~Tunnels filled with rats underneath the fields! ~A secret passageway to the edge of the world! ~Secret shrines to the Pumpkin Lord! ~A toilet that flushes you into the dark realm of Arugula, the evil Squid Lord! The Halfling Festival ~The Dunshire Harvest Festival~ Halfling Festivals are always massive events, drawing large numbers of players to the Halfling village for a good ol’ time! There are several features in common with Festivals, although almost every Festival is unique in some way! Common features of Halfling Festivals: 1: Shogging, Darts, Pie Eating, and other games. Halflings love playing fun little games! For instance, Shogging, a common halfling sport played on two logs, is a part of almost every Festival! Pie-Eating is also common, as Halflings are fond of food and often wish to turn it into a competition! Darts are a bit less common, but still fun nonetheless! 2: Drinking! If there’s anything Halflings love more than food, it’s booze! It’s not uncommon for Halflings to drink an entire barrel of booze in one sitting! Due to this, massive amounts of booze are consumed in practically every Halfling Festival worth writing home about! 3: Another main attraction! While drinking and games may appeal to many, many Halfling Festivals go beyond this! Some Festivals include massive events like Pig Races, Boat Racing, Scavenger Hunts, and entire adventures as the main attraction for the Festival! How to Shog Shogging is a very common Halfling Sport that most Halflings wish to master. Here are the basic rules: 1: Begin with one person on each log. 2: The goal is to knock your opponent off of their log without falling off of your own! 3: No jumping from one log to the other! Stay on your own log! 4: You must wear a pumpkin on your head and use a shovel to try and knock your opponent off. 5: No finding extra holes through your pumpkin! (Don’t use third person camera or hide your user interface to avoid the pumpkin penalty!) Some tips and tricks: 1: It’s useful to sneak so that you don’t fall off by accident. 2: However, you can suddenly stop sneaking to rapidly move forwards to catch your opponent by surprise! 3: Playing defensively is usually better than playing aggressively, but sometimes being aggressive can pay off! Other cool guides: The Halfling Information Mega-Thread (which this thread is replacing) An unofficial Halfling guide to Hosting Guests (still relevant) Halfling Activities Guide (outdated, but great for inspiration!) So you want to be a Halfling (outdated) The Official Halfling Guide (Outdated but still good!) Why you should be a Halfling (Outdated but an excellent read!) That’s all for now! I’ll keep on adding to this guide until I am satisfied with it. It’s just that I wanted to post it sooner so that new Halflings wishing to live in Brandybrook may see it!
  24. Gathering in Brandybrook, waiting for the Festival to begin Lining up for the Swimming Competition! The Swimming Competition in action! Shogging on the Dinkle River! Lining up for the Surfing Competition! The Surfing Competition! (It didn’t quite work out as planned due to lag) Fishing on the Dinkle River! All in all, it was quite a fun Festival, and I’m glad that I decided to run it! I hope Brandybrook has more fun events like this in the future!
  25. The Jade Riders The Jade Riders are a broad group of rangers and adventurers alike who oppose threats to the natural world and help others survive in dangerous environments. A Rider might help a small village prepare for a brutal winter, or aid a Kingdom in a deadly war. Riders may protect a town from an onslaught of malicious foes or simply aid in the construction of a new settlement. Members of the Jade Riders know how to survive, and more importantly, they want to help others do the same. They are not opposed to civilization or progress, but they strive to prevent civilization and the wilderness from destroying one another. Members of the Riders are spread far and wide, generally in isolation or small cadres. Survival in a harsh world also demands great fortitude and mastery of certain fighting and survival skills. Beliefs: The natural order must be respected and preserved. Forces that seek to upset the natural balance must be destroyed. The wilderness can be harsh. Not everyone can survive in it without assistance. Goals: The Jade Riders goals are to restore and preserve the natural order, keep the elemental forces of the world in check, keep civilization and the wilderness from destroying one another, and help others survive the perils of the wilderness.
