To All-
I have received an offer of support and friendship from Lemmingtopias from the region of Atlantis. It seems to be an offer to participate in their larger region activities. Atlantis looks like an important region. I think they could be a strong ally in good and bad times. I will tell them the Shire is interested in what they have to offer us.

If you'd like a more active region, move to Brailistan. It's small, but filled with nice people!

The completed clean up ushers in a new day in the Shire. Let there be dancing in the streets, drinking in the saloons, and necking in the parks.

Yodas Yoyos and A Hobbit

The Shire. Nice! Many of my orcs and goblins would be interested to acquire estates with holiday houses or for their retirement. I hope you are open for that. Anyway, any resistance would be... let's say unprofitable for you. :p

Thank you very much for the embassy! It is indeed appreciated.

I had to go for a not totally unexpected journey. Towards Mordor. Keep the Shire nice and safe!

Valarian eagle

I am opening up an in in the northfarthing called The Valarian Eagle. Stop by if you get the chance.
