"I have found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay... "


Founded to be a band of all Free Folk - Man, Elf, Dwarf and Hobbit - to together bring light to the ordinary folk suffering from the growing evil. The War of the Ring has not just effected Kings, Lord and Mayors, but the small folk, the simple ordinary people too.

The farmers of the Bree fields, the woodsmen of Chetwood Forest, the tinkerers and miners of the Dwarf Kingdoms, the Elven companies making their West... Even the quiet Shire folk have felt the impact of the War.

With this in mind, the An Unexpected Party, seek to bring happiness, comfort and light to he lives of these people. Members welcome all road-worn travelers, saddle-sore nobles and stay-at-homers with mirth, ale and a warm hearth...

"... If you have a pipe about you, sit down and have a fill of mine! There's no hurry, we have all the day before us!"
