Introduction

The Farmers Faire is a special event scheduled to take place in mid-to-late summer, and is chiefly based in Bywater. In the tradition of other seasonal festivals, during the Farmers Faire players can participate in various events such as "Farmer Sandson's Egg Scramble or try to steal some of Farmer Maggot's delicious (and peculiar) mushrooms"[1] to obtain rewards such as cosmetic clothing, housing decorations and mounts.

Events

Farmers Market

Bounder Rounds

Some of the Party-goers have been enjoying themselves a little too much and are causing a ruckus. Bounder Boffin asks you to keep them in line.

Sober vs drunk differences:

  • 'A toast to the fine farmers who made this Faire so delicious! May the hair on your toes grow thick and curly.'

Fat Mayor

Mayor Will Whitfoot likes to eat and he's doing just that while the food is abundant. However, sometimes his appetite gets the better of him and he samples something alarming. Relieve him using items found on the table nearby based on his response to the food.

  • Ack! Ss...spuh...spicy! Save me! - Milk
  • Adding to this dish would spoil its taste. - Nothing
  • All this eating is hard work -- exercise, if you ask me. I need to replenish. - Water
  • Bland, bland, bland. - Salt
  • Crisp flavour, hearty, and a clean aftertaste! - Nothing
  • Dear me. It burns, it burns!! - Milk
  • Did Opal forget to season this? - Salt
  • First sweet, then salty, then savoury -- the flavours compliment each other well! - Nothing
  • Hmm. Not quite rich enough, if you ask me. - Butter
  • I must cleanse my palette. - Wine
  • It just needs a dab of something.... - Butter
  • It's missing a little something... - Salt
  • Lovely, lovely. - Nothing
  • Mmm! Whoever made this is worthy of great admiration. - Nothing
  • Nice and salty, but now my mouth is dry. - Water
  • Ouch!! Too much pepper! - Milk
  • So...thirsty... - Water
  • Something tart will do nicely right now. - Wine
  • That was a nice set of flavours. - Nothing
  • That was a passable meal, I suppose. - Nothing
  • This bread is too dry! - Butter
  • This was too fine a dish to be eaten without an accompaniment. - Wine

Manning the Market

Daisy Sandyman is overrun by customers seeking to fill orders at the market. Help her by gathering foodstuffs at the stalls around the market and fulfilling their various requests.

Restocking the Market

Because the Farmers Market is a big hit, many of the stalls need restocking. Sperling Took asks you to run an errand to one of the various farms to pick up more goods for the market within a certain time limit. To help you finish on time, he offers you a delicious pie to give you a boost in speed.

He asks you to try your hand at grabbing Farmer Maggot's mushrooms without being detected by his trusty hounds, Fang, Grip and Wolf. Collecting mushrooms earns you Farmers Faire Tokens, but beware, consuming the mushrooms can have quite interesting effects. You must bring a Festival Ticket to enter the challenge.

Inn League and Ale Association

The Inn League and the Ale Association are running their activities during the faire.

Festival Dances

During all seasonal Festivals, Dance Leaders will teach characters up to eight special racial dances (two from each Race) by completing dance lessons. There is one Dance Leader located in each of the festival grounds of Thorin's Hall Inn and The Festival Garden in Ered Luin, The Party Tree in The Shire, and the Festival Grounds in Bree-land.

Dance lessons take place every 20 minutes, and the quests are available for about 5 minutes before the dance begins. At time of writing, the quest start times are (relative to the hour mark): 10 past, half past and 10 to. When the Dance Leader starts, target the leader and follow their instructions using the commands /dance1, /dance2, or /dance3 as they instruct you. There are about 5-10 seconds to perform each step.

At the end of the lesson, the Dance Leader returns to their original position and you are able to select your reward: either the first or second dance emote from that race. Complete the lessons again to learn all the dances!

Festival Horse Races

Each festival brings exciting horses races to The Shire Race-track and the Bree-land Festival Grounds. By completing a race in time, players can win festival tokens which can be exchanged for festival rewards. Starting with Yule Festival 2012, you no longer must win a horse race to purchase exclusive festival mounts from Will Peartree at Hengstacer Farm. At the Anniversary Festival, festival mounts can also be purchased from Henry Peartree at the Bree Market Square
