Chicken Play allows you to experience the game from a very different perspective - that of a level 1 chicken; or to be precise, a rooster.


Chicken Play is accessed via a series of quests given by Wald Sandson at Sandson's Farm, in the Shire. Each quest (apart from Which Laid First) takes you into Chicken Play, with a generous time limitation. The chicken has an equivalent quest listed as level 1.
Your name will be ~Name, and you can only talk on chicken channels. There are no specific chicken emotes although all the usuals are available as text. A maximum of 50 people can be chickens at any one time. You may not talk to any of the standard NPCs - including stable-masters. Your map is new (mostly blank) on each session. All normally aggressive monsters are aggressive.
