September 23 is Bilbo’s and Frodo’s birthday, and before you all send me a message telling me how I screwed up, let me assure you that I haven’t. Bilbo’s and Frodo’s birthday fall on Halimath the 22, which this year falls on the 23rd of September. We are looking at throwing a world wide party for our two favorite Hobbits. If you are interested in hosting a party locally to celebrate Bilbo’s and Frodo’s birthday, head on over to the Messageboard under ‘The One Ring’ and particiapte in the dialogue. You can also contact us by email and let us know. We will then post your information so that people in your local part of the world can get a hold of you and you can work out the details. This is the start of something big. We will be holding more local real world events.
