Graphics and Lag
Come to Weatherstock with your graphics turned to low before you reach the summit. You will be surprised what 400 characters in all their armor can do to even the mightiest of GPUs.
- Reduce resolution
- Turn off shadows
- Reduce draw distance
- Turn off on-hit combat effects (under combat options)
- Take off your hat! (They are usually graphically complex objects)
If your computer is dying:
- Look at the sky or the ground
- Look away from large crowds of people
- Don't go anywhere near the mounted procession to Weatherstock!

Weatherstock Concert Series
The Weatherstock Concert Series is a series of concerts at the base of Weathertop where our contestants can have a longer format concert. All concerts will be put on in the week before Weatherstock. We will be holding them at a locations around Middle Earth.
|May 18th||6:00pm||Symphonia et Gloria|
Weatherstock Dance Competition
At the dance competition, we'll have two contests with slightly different rules:
Couples Dance Contest
In this contest, we will have non-stop music while our couples are asked to dance to increasingly difficult partner dances. After a grace period to switch to the dance, we will start eliminating couples for problems with synching, clipping, or position. This will continue on at a faster and faster pace until only one couple is left dancing.
Quadrilles Dance Contest
This contest will feature four-dancer sets. No one will be eliminated, but rather judged on each groups performance . We'll have a final decision by our audience on which is the winner.
Battle of the Bands
We will be pitting 9 of the best bands in all Middle Earth against one another! There will be 3 prizes awarded:
Light in the Darkness
This prize will be presented to the band who inspires the most participants to raise "hope" tokens immediately after their performance. Hope tokens are available from our vendors in the gold outfits.
Lonely Mountain Cup
The Lonely Mountain Cup will be awarded to the band judged winner by the Lonely Mountain Band.
Free People's Choice
This is the most coveted prize, as the free peoples of Eriador will elect a winner at the end of the concert. All bands will return for a final number, while the free peoples show their preferences by standing with the band they prefer.
Rules and Regulations

Please refrain from "Forced" emotes, such as the Minstrels Irrestible Dance, Captain's kneel, Burglar's Sneeze, or Champion's cheer. It contributes to lag and causes systems to freak out.
No campfires or fireworks are allowed at the summit of Amon Sul except by official LMB stage crew. ((We don't want to burn out any graphics cards...))
Down in front
Please sit down in the front rows.
A designated dance area will be set up near the main stage. If you are in the area, you should be dancing.
Security will be provided by Lonely Mountain Band for the duration of the event. Any who need escort through the dangerous lonelands should contact one of the security staff. Transportation will be provided from South Bree and the Forsaken Inn. Should you need assistance Andeon is in charge of the security detail.
The Freakout Zone will be a quiet place for players to calm down after the craziness of our concert. The location of the Freakout Zone is in Candaith's encampment near the western flank of Weathertop. Casual bands and soloists are encouraged to come and play soothing music to our frazzled guests. Hike to the top of the hill for a grand view of the summit!
A green room will be provided for competing bands to warm up prior to performance. Just the thing for a final sound check and to make sure everyone has all the necessary instruments.
