This year's theme is "Hastilude".
This refers to medieval-style training for tournaments and even
tournaments themselves, as seen in Tolkien. For this year, it also
includes FOOD WARS!
This can refer to strange ingredients to add to
the dish from neekerbreekers to dragon parts. Or to a place to hunt,
farm, or cook. It can refer to actual dishes or even Pie Runs. These
can be screenshots from your favorite games, real life pictures,
stories, poems, songs, and articles. Name your poison! Er, spice!

Gaming Screenshots of Anniversary
How do I take a screenshot?
In LotRO, F12 removes
quickslots etc from the display. N toggles names on and off. F11
makes a screenshot that goes into your computer's Documents folder
under Lord of the Rings Online.
In WoW, use your keyboard's
version of PrintScreen (PrntScrn on the top row on mine) to make the
screenshot. The image goes into the game's folder under Screenshots.
If you can't join a group, feel free to take solo
screenshots in your game of choice to send here.
Lord of the Rings Online
(Screenshots will be located on your computer under Documents >
Lord of the Rings Online. Use F12 to remove the User Interface, F11
to take a screenshot.)
(Solo screenshots are welcome, besides the Ride.)
We had a group ride into main towns to a location for
fireworks. This was done twice during October 4 to handle our
multiple timezones and crazy schedules.
Our Shadowfax server kin branch gained a new kin house for the
Bree-land Homesteads, Ramsward neighborhood, at 9 Chestnut Street.
Our Treebeard server kin branch gained a new kin house a bit later
(Oct 24) but still during the anniversary month:
Shire Homesteads, Thatchacre, 8 Harrow Street.
