Out of Character info:
This page have some out of character information regarding the event. If there is something you do not find here that you are wondering about, please send us an email / ingame mail, and we will try to help you to our best knowledge.
Archet Aid is a RP event in the town of Archet. The reason for this is both the background story of the place, but also because it is an area that everyone, regardless of level and race, are able to travel to quite easily. If you need any help in getting there, please give us a ‘nudge’ and we will help you out any way we can. We got ‘hunter-taxi’s’ on standby for the occasion 🙂
OBS! This does not mean you have to be a RP’er to attend our little Fayre. We just hope that people that roleplay their characters will use it as a backdrop for their stories and ‘lives’ to help us giving it a bit more ‘live-atmosphere’ as a Fayre. If you do not RP, or are brand new to the game and are shy / afraid to jump into the ‘rp action’, no worries. This is an open event for everyone in the middle-earth 🙂
The Channels in the area
With an event that might generate a bit of communication on different subjects, we would like to suggest that people use this little guideline as a helping hand:
[ArchetAid] channel for event information and important messages. /Joinchannel ArchetAid to make this one active.
[LFF] – recruitment channel for kins and other organisations. Please post your advertisement for attracting new members here.
[Say] considered to be In-Character and please do not spam this
[OOC] the usual chitchat, and where ya gives a tell if the area is in layers and ya need a ‘ride’ over to the right one. We will have people watching this thread for questions like that.
About Roleplaying your character
Curious of the concept of RP’ing (Roleplaying your character) but got a fright of doing it wrong?
No worries. Just think along the lines of what your character would have done and just let things unfold. This is a musical and fun event, not the ‘supreme court of RP Lore’ 🙂
If you are brand new to RP and would like some pointers about RP, taking a look at the ‘Roleplay’ thread on the official forums is a nice play to start. There are also sites like: Voices of Middle Earth, Lotro-Wiki, Dwarrow Scholar (for dwarfs), Childen of Iluvatar and The Lotro Vault. (we have surely forgotten to mention a bunch of sites, so add others you know of in the comment field below.)
A quick clarification though. This is a Solidarity Concert, not a Charity Concert.
We spent half the event last time telling people we did not want their silver but their awareness about the poor situation for the farmers of Archet. 🙂
If you really want to separate with some cash, then please consider charities like Child’s Play or similar ones that are trying to do to something good through the gaming community.
