Volunteers are needed to bring the Mystery event to life and draw a crowd for the charity auction! Please sign up to participate in this fun annual event! There are many important roles available:

• 5 witnesses: An easy and fun job -- stand in one of the Halloween-themed houses near the ranch, roleplay with visitors, and hand out pre-scripted clues when people ask the right questions.
• 1-2 road wardens: The road wardens wander the streets between the houses, helping people find each of the houses containing a witness.
• 1 chief investigator: Introduces the story and reveals the solution at the end. They also answer OOC questions about how to play the game

About the Lonely Mountain Band

We know that in elder days before the fall, the world was fair and mountains tall. Melkor and his minions including the newly risen 'Witch-king of Angmar' have marred Arda and seek to break the will of free peoples and make them slaves. The Lonely Mountain Band will fight to the death, and answer any call in defence of the free peoples of Middle Earth.
