re: Ales & Tales 12/19 @ Yule Festival w/ The Tolkien Prof!

Ales & Tales ... with The Tolkien Professor!!!

Hullo! Tis time for a Doubly Special 'Ales & Tales'! We will be visiting Frostbluff for our annual Yule Festival holiday show and Corey Olsen, The Tolkien Professor, will be visiting us for some lore-bestowing! As such, the format for this show will be different.

WARNING: Update 19.2 is scheduled to drop on the same day! Please allow yourself extra time to update and log-in!

Nibbles & Nobs starts early at 8:00pm with open-stage. Old Winyards will play an opening set of holiday music at 9:00pm (all times are EDT, /servertime). Then the Tolkien Professor will join us at 9:30 for some lore discussion (details on how to participate found below). Lastly, Old Winyards will play a closing set of holiday music sometime around 10:30/11:00ish.

Help Out Backstage:
For this special show, we have a specific need (beyond our usual request for assistance with vending, MCing and playing with Old Winyards): We will need someone to layer-wrangle in order to move folks to the proper layer at Yule Festival.

If you would like to help out with any backstage tasks, please sign up at: http://tinyurl.com/atstagecrew. We do appreciate any help you can give!

Play with Old Winyards:
Old Winyards always has room for folks to join the house band!
If you would like to play with us, be sure to have the latest LMBPlaylist 5.19 music file downloaded/updated.
Latest release December 2nd, 2016: http://file3.guildlaunch.net/128176/LMBPlaylist-5.19.zip

You may sign up for playing with the band this week at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Uz2_Tiu4JKUeng6OyZz7iiWqTl-T4iZO5vfT3jdrlK4/edit#gid=2128929964 on the right-hand side of the sheet.
Or, just reply to this post. If you are new, please indicate which instruments you play at the bottom of the sheet (and do bring them all with you). Please be ready to rock AT 9:00pm /servertime. Please wear a classy burgundy outfit! And do dress warmly. wink

Using Songbook to Sync music:
If you'd like to learn how to sync music with a band, Eilye has written a very informative guide explaining how to use the Songbook Plugin!
http://lonelymountainband.guildlaunch.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=10492542

Share a song or tale!
We always need folks to entertain!
If you have a song or tale to share, please come along and sign up to share it during Nibbles & Nobs' open-stage (8:00-9:00pm this week only)!

Instructions for asking questions of The Tolkien Professor
Here is the link to the Lore Hall Discord channel: https://discord.gg/mCs57eC. Folks can either use the web-based version of the app or download the local client. In this channel, only Corey can talk ... everyone else is automatically muted. Also, there is a text channel they have opened called #ales-and-tales -- this will be for question-asking from our end during the event. Corey will monitor this channel and respond accordingly. Please, ONLY use this channel for submitting questions to Corey -- he can’t sift through comments and chatter and random pie-talk to get to questions, so comments, chatter and pie-talk needs to go elsewhere... such as our usual outlets e.g. /alesandtales and /say. Professor Corey will field lore questions and also provide some insight on various areas of Tolkien lore... such as Yuletide holidays! So, gather your lore-questions and brace yourselves for lore-answers!

We do hope you can join us for this very special show!

P.S. There will also be an Announcement of Special Wintry Significance. Happy

I will advertise as well on Twitter later. Also, I'll get the Remediators to join us for 2-3 traditional Yule songs (with Tolkien-lore lyrics) during open mic in honour of the Professor coming.

Neither game updates
Nor new publishers on login screens
Not layer-wrangling snafus
Nor newfangled chat technology
Not snowfields spam chatter
Nor chickens clucking
Nor befuddled bandleader
Shall keep Old Winyards from its appointed Yuletide show!

Thanks to all of you for rocking Frostbluff and listening in with The Tolkien Professor ... and for rocking out with 'Ales & Tales' throughout another year! Happy
