So it had to happen :) Me and Elenthari got in our hands this event and we won't release it untill its done! ^^

We want to know opinions of members about how this event should look and in which areas they want to participate.

We thought about such activities:

RPG

- Hobbit Party (everyone should bring a lot of food!)
- The Freaky AU Fellowship (we exploring Middle-Earth in 3rd Era)
- Elven Ball (everyone thinks which dress to wear!)

Movie Marathons

Contests:

Fanfiction: divided into poetry and prose
Fanart: divided into
- chapters of the Fellowship of the Ring
- races of Middle-Earth
- poster contest
- traditional art

We think about the timeline; does 20th August - 1st October suit you?

We wait for your opinions! :)

Btw, here are banners for promoting the event :)

Great, guys! We appreciate it. :D

Btw, this year it's 10 years since FotR was released, so we were thinking to make the event a bit more FotR related. What do you think of it? :)
Also we're open to new ideas and suggestions. It'd be of great help. :)

I added promotion banners to the first post :)

Yes, as Elenthari says, if you have any idea, that would be great-great-great to hear them ^^

Yay, for another RotR!! Good job guys and thanks for setting it up!
I'd love to participate and the days look good to me. Especially, I'm hoping that a lot of people will post pictures of their dresses for the Elven ball.. that was so much fun to look at gorgeousness last time! :P

Beautiful banners by the way!! I might snatch one some time! :teehee:

We have a question for all who wish to participate and look at the event. Which one do you prefer for traditional art contest: portrait or scenery (like draw Mordor, draw Rivendell etc).

:)

Post subject:  Re: Return of the Rings 2011

Actually, I'd love to see scenery or locations. We have a couple of people who draw portraits very well but it would be interesting to see scenery too. And perhaps it would make new people join as well because scenery doesn't have to be so accurate as a portrait and can be more.. artsy, you may say... :)

Ooooh sounds like lots and lots of fun I'm in :D

Post subject:  Re: Return of the Rings 2011

I cannot draw, but I definitely vote on the scenery portion, because LOTR was filmed in such a beautiful place, plus just has some of the most beauitful scenery in any movie that I've seen!

Post subject:  Re: Return of the Rings 2011

I agree, scenery would be somethin different, and it might open doors to more people who aren't very good at drawing people. I'd like to jump into all this whenever i can, it sounds great.

Post subject:  Re: Return of the Rings 2011

Guys, I know we should start tomorrow, but Smaug hasn't been around these days and I think we should wait for her. I hope it's not a problem that we'll postpone the start of RotR with few days. :blush:

I'm really sorry for this last-minute delay.:blush: :blush: :blush:

Author:  Tinker Bell [ August 19th, 2011, 11:03 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Return of the Rings 2011

Its alright. You cant start RotR without one of the main kick-off people. :)

Post subject:  Re: Return of the Rings 2011

Now guys, I know we've put the event on hold a little bit, but I guess it wouldn't do any harm if we start working on organising the things a little. :) We'll most certainly appreciate your opinion and help - after all RotR is an event made by members for members. :)
Now, I'm bit a newbie-ish about working on such big events such as RotR.:blush: Please, bear with me in my inexperience. ^^' *ahem* So, here we go. *concentrates on her sparkling, a.k.a, thinking, abilities*



Return of the Rings 2011: Planning&Discussion Thread
5th September - 16th October


Now,in my opinion there are few questions we should answer about each event, part of RotR. And namely:

What?: What event - contest/RPG/Hobbit Party/Elven Ball ect...
What's my vision?: How do you picture this event. If it's a contest - how many rounds should it be? If it's a RPG - what is it's plot? In other words - a brief description of the event.
How many?: How many threads do we need for each event?
Who?: Who will be host/hosts of the event.
How long:Discuss the duration of each event.

So, let's see what we have in our hat until this moment. :)
Quote:
What: Hobbit Party
What's my vision: Smaug and I were thinking this to be our opening event. Funny and random so everybody can enjoy themselves. :P
How many: The number of threads I considered is 3 - a Main one, one for posting our outfits and one for posting what food we bring with us (inspired by Smaug's comment "everyone should bring a lot of food!") and how we've decorated our party field :P
Who: 2-3 hosts
How long: Well, as an opening event it should begin on RotR's start-date. As for the duration - I don't know, maybe as long as we can keep running it?



What: Elven ball
What's my vision: Our closing event.
How many: Maybe 3 threads: a main one, one for posting our outfits, one for posting our dates
Who: Again 2-3 hosts
How long: Last week of RotR?



What: Contests - FanArt
What's my vision: Divided into 4 topics:
- LotR chapters
- races of Middle-Earth
- poster contest
- traditional art
We were thinking that each topic of the FanArt contests should consist of few rounds.
How many: New thread for each round.
Who: 4 - one for each topic.
How long: The duration is set by each host. ;)



What: Contests - Fanfiction
What's my vision: Divided into 2 topics:
- poetry
- prose
Again each contest consists of few rounds - 2 or 3
How many: New thread for each round.
Who: 2 - one for each topic.
How long: The duration is set by each host.



What: Movie Marathons
What's my vision: Organised LotR movie night during the weekends?
How many: I was thinking of using AU's chat on the main site :erm:
Who: 1 or 2 hosts
How long: Each Saturday/Sunday during RotR?


Now, this is how I picture some of RotR's events. This is just an outline. Fell free to post your opinion on each topic. Tell us what kind of contests/RPG's you're interested participate/you're interested to host. Also if you have an idea for a theme for the contests/RPG/etc. - share it with us. :)

For example I'd like to suggest something about the poetry contest. How about we choose few places from Middle-earth, (The Shire, Lorien, Edoras, Minas Tirith, Barad-dur, Moria etc). The contestants will choose one of them and write a poem about it?

For now I'll leave the space under each section blank. Feel free to sign up for whatever event you'd like to help with the organisation! Few more hands on this won't be unnecessary! ;)As we go through the discussion process I'll renew the information under each section orderly. ;)

PS: Also we should discuss a new time line for RotR. How about we start around 5th September?

PPS: I'm really sorry for my messy post. I hope that I hope I've expressed myself in an understandable way. :blush: Feel free to ask in order to clarify the misunderstandings.
