LOTRO Fellowship Walk
Oct 22 @ 1:59pm - Oct 24 @ 9:59pm
The Fellowship will be conducting a virtual walk inside the online game The Lord of the Rings Online. The goal is to walk from the in-game location of Bag-End all the way to Rivendell following the path of Frodo and his fellowship from the stories written by J.R.R. Tolkien.
The event will take place from September 23rd, 2013 (the departure date of the original fellowship) until October 24th, 2013 (when Frodo woke up in Imladris).
Every donation we receive, will help move the fellowship forward on the same path as Frodo. We have developed a goal chart that will determine how the donations relate to the distance in game.
Departure at Bag End $0
Green Hill Country $250
Elf Camp $500
Frodo’s House in Crickhollow $750
Tom Bombadil’s House $1 000
The Barrow in Barrow Downs $1 250
Bree, The Prancing Pony $1 500
The Midgewater Marshes $1 750
Weatherhills $2 000
Harloeg $2 500
Bilbo’s Trolls, Trollshaws $3 000
Bruinen River, Trollshaws $4 000
Rivendell, Last Homely House $5 000
Once a goal from the chart has been reached the Fellowship staff will host a virtual walk in game from one location to the new goal location. This walk will be hosted on the Landroval server and the community will be encouraged to log in and join us on our walk across Middle-earth.
We also plan to live broadcast and record the walk for members of the community not able to join us and for use of promoting our progress on the Lotro Players blog. There will be a weekly progress post created to show the Fellowship’s current location in game.
100% of the donations will be given directly to Child’s Play; The Fellowship is not retaining any of the donations collected.
