Hello there, good <class>!

You may have noticed that there is a special event is going on: our very own Anniversary! There are festivities taking place in many locations, perhaps you'd like to know the particulars?

While the event is under way, you will find that there is a Beer-brawl in Thorin's Hall, Fireworks Shows in Bree and the Shire, Horse-races at the Horse-fields and Delving fields, and a great number of tokens to be found all over the world. You may trade these tokens for special gifts and profit greatly from such simple tasks as fighting evil in Middle-earth.

Go and explore the different festivities, and be sure to return here at night to participate in our marvelous firework show!


Every year in the spring, the Anniversary Event takes place to celebrate a very special occasion.

NOTE: This quest will be removed from your quest log when the current festival ends.
