Welcome back, Kaleigh! I'm glad you've gotten your mirror sorted out, or purchased a new and hopefully better one!

Yes, the theatrical business is on indefinite hiatus. I'm waiting for Mister Skoch to do his part, as he told me he wanted, so there's that. And then I never did find a Bullroarer. (As a sad aside, Master Galspi, who rehearsed with us one evening, has unexpectedly ventured into the West. Some of you may know him as Godwineson, or Meneladan, too. It's a grief for many in the LMB who knew him well.)

Perhaps when more lands open up we'll see some folks return, or new folks join, and we can summon enough players. In the mean time, I'm working on other things, and I hope you all are finding amusing things to do, as well.

We miss you, Perlina!  And we hope everything is okay.  Whenever you are ready to return, we will pick things up and continue on!

Bilwise has agreed to play the brother, Ferumbras, and Palafoxia will be Sheep 1 (Betsy). See you all tomorrow evening in Brockenborings!

Well, Skoch has confirmed that he'd like to play Golfimbul, and he even has an idea of some goblin chatter, and how the whole sorry episode came about. He'll join us in Brockenborings this Thursday, 28 July. We're getting the casting done, bit by bit!

I dont think any place is free of the bug,  the cast could wander throught the crowd of  viewers before the show or scene  that would  ensure they coudl be heard.  also there is always the emote which can always be heard  /e says, " Hullo"   woudl still look like  Hoppa says "Hullo"  but coudl be seen

this coudl also be used to emote your part,    /roar aka the Bullroarer, says, " ROOOOOARR"

Theatrical practice tonight! This means you, Meadowlark, hehe. I'd like to confirm as many of the castings as possible, and also go through Scenes 1-3 with regard to the stagings. I'm thinking of actually having us perform in Greenfields, up by Brockenborings, but I'm not sure whether we can find a place that's relatively free of the nefarious and insidious /say bug.

Thank you so, much, Hoppa-- this sounds amazing!

I've added some goblin outfits, ( not full  as I will explain )   the two shirt pieces, in  ranger green should make the appearance of  goblin half armour over green skin.   there are various  boot styles,   each goblin should wear a different pair,  to make them look rag-tag.  there are some shoulder pieces,   for variety.

Now,  I wanted  badly,  to have [Ceremonial Thrill-seeker's Boots][Ceremonial Thrill-seeker's Leggings][Ceremonial Pathfinder's Shoulders][Ceremonial Shoulders of the Stone-student] pieces as well but the bloody skirmish camp  bound hem to me when I  got them.  most were around 200 marks and 15 medallions or so,    if your goblins have the marks and medallions  please  mix and match these  through our your army  they look great for goblins.   Thrill seeker legs in ranger green look like   goblin legs if you got  flared boots.


So yeah... I wasted marks and medallions for nothing as I already had some of these pieces... hehe  rats...


Anyways, these are in  Miss Telle's house,   please wardobe these items, and don't equip em  some are the only ones I got hehe.

I'll work on other things soonish Happy

Thank you to all who turned out for the reading yesterday, I appreciate it so much. I know we didn't get more partly because I didn't advertise anywhere save here, so I'll post elsewheres now, too.

For next week, I'll get the actions finished for Scene 1 and polish it up a bit. If anyone has any suggestions, especially for humour, please let me know. You all have a sense now of the animals and their personalities, so feel free to add anything. I'll make it so you can comment on the script, here:

Also, you all can have your pick of the roles. There are some big ones left, however. Scene 2 introduces Bandobras and his older brother, Isumbras, and I can picture Meadow as Isumbras. Then Scene 3 introduces Diamond's pompous suitor, Horace Bracegirdle, and that's a decent role, too.

I haven't heard from Mister Skoch, so we need a Golfimbul.... do you have a goblin mask we can borrow, Hoppa?

Cheers to all!


P.S. I've heard the most shocking rumours about Olalie... Well what happened was, her mum wanted to go back to her people in the Southfarthing, and Olalie went with her, as she's the only child and done with adventuring. So then the gaffer came to live with us, and I take care of him, mostly. Sometimes when I'm reading or writing he escapes, though, and goes out trying to "fix" things around people's homes, heavens! He's as bad as Gaffer Tobblin, I tell you! So if I ever have to leave abruptly, that's what it is.

Oh, Kaleigh, I'm glad you'll be there, you've been a stalwart supporter of the arts since... forever! There is only one role for a Tall Folk in this play, a Ranger, and I think you'd be fine for that role-- I expect you have some suitable garb tucked away in a chest somewhere. Something like what that odd fellow, Halros, wears, since rumour has it that he is a Ranger.

If we don't have enough players, I know there are many hobbits in the Moot, and perhaps those who attend Ales and Tales, who would join in, perhaps Tomeoric and Dori and Bilwise, and Sageflower and Piperia, maybe that bunny-hugger Fincin.

This is wonderful news, Miss Perlina.  Wonderful news, indeed!

I will definitely come to the meeting on Thursday.  I am not sure if I am well-suited for any of the roles in the play to be cast, but if you feel otherwise or need someone to stand in or understudy, I would be very glad to do so.  Maybe I can be on the 'special effects' team like what Miss Byrcha did for the Green Ladies play if that is a need.

I look foward to the wonder and amazement that your theatricals always provide,

Yay, Genny! I hope to see you on Thusday! *hugs*

I'm so sorry about your schedule, Hoppa, I had hoped that the Warders would play all the animals. Oh, well. *sighs* But we might take you up on that costume offer. The actors will need masks, and some kind of outfit for each animal that goes with the mask, with proper colours-- say brown or grey for the donkey (I forget what colour the mask is), white for the sheep, pink for the pig, and so on.

If costume help is needed,  between mine and Daffi's collections  I am sure we can find most  outfits needed.

I dinna think  I will have time for acting though  :/

Yay!  I'm so glad to see another Play by Perlina!  I'd be glad to help in any way I can!
