A Sunny Sunday Stroll

The Shire is full of lovely places to see and visit, being a vibrant region full of folks who love their homes and the land.  When not out adventuring Delphinia enjoys walking though the gardens and wild places.  Today’s stroll takes place in the memorial gardens of Michel Delving as she is in town visiting friends.

Summer Days

It’s festival time in Middle Earth, and while all the races have fun and entertainments available – nothing beats the hobbit celebration! This year the hobbits have really organized a bash too: fishing, kite flying, sweet cream stand, dances, etc. All in all a very good year to enjoy the festivities.
Anmorata takes some time to enjoy the season, and Absinthe joins in!

Her outfit is:
Chest – Sleeveless Elven Tunic in Crimson
Shoulders – Medium Nadhin Shoulders in Crimson
Head – Ketill Mapmakers Hat in Crimson
Back – Fancy Elven Quiver in Crimson
Bow – Death-puller

Steed Absinthe is wearing:
Caparison of the Summer Sun in Crimson
Halter of Rivendell in Crimson
Leggings of Rivendell in Crimson

 

I do love this tunic, and I use it on quite a few alts.  I’m looking forward to when the Belegaer Blue dye is released as it will give even more options for this tunic and a few other hard-to-match items.  Here is another variant I’ve made with a little huntress I play on the Laurelin server.  The shoulders have that similar blueish band in the front and the hat just looks so dapper – this is her standard festival outfit.  She has far more practical clothes for serious action in both regular temperatures and in the icy cold places!

Introducing – Reznora

Reznora of the Fallohide Hobbits

Reznora is a young hobbit minstrel. Born in the northern parts of Ered Luin, she lived there with her parents and older sister Delphinia until a tragic accident took the lives of both her parents. She showed a strong aptitude for music at a very young age, garnering some interest from an enclave of elves living nearby, who trained her in many instruments. After the accident the sisters moved back to the Shire, Tuckborough to be precise, to be near their Took relatives. Reznora kept up her musical training, and is the reason for some of the mysterious elven sightings in the Shire as her elven mentors would periodically travel to assess her progress.

As young adult hobbitess, she is known for her hospitality and outgoing personality. Her skills at both cooking and music have made invitations to gatherings at the sisters’ home highly sought after prizes. Between the disappearance of some of her Took relatives and seeing the human champion Anmorata assisting the Shire, Reznora was inspired to join the battle. Granted this did not take much urging, with her Took blood 🙂 Her inspirational music allows her to urge her fellows onto greater efforts, and even assist in the battle. Her cooking skills also help her companions, as she can provide warm, delicious meals to fortify them before and after battles.

Reznora’s travels take her all over the world, but she always loves coming back home to the Great Smials. Her sweetheart is hobbit warden who trained with her sister, and after the war is over they plan to marry.

Her beautiful white Steed is Trentina – a sturdy and intrepid mare who matches her mistress well.
