Creating your Hobbit

Character Creation can be a bit of an art in itself, however, this game allows you to have both an in-depth or a more ‘bare bones’ approach to your own Hobbit character to play in the game. If you need some help, simply ask in the Facebook event groups! (After ticket sales release, groups specific to families can be created for the current ticketed group of that year).

 

Admins & fellow players alike would be happy to help guide you or create familiar ties with your character to give more depth and comfort in roleplay. The basics like your character’s name, family and general disposition should be all you need to play a fulfilling game with your hobbit family and friends!

Higgleby
Higgleby Family

Personality:

For all Hobbits, life is something to be
enjoyed; the Higglebys in this instance are philosophers of Hobbit life. Seldom do they take much of anything very seriously. This
irreverence applies to rules and competitions as well, and few things are more appealing to a Higgleby than the sound of raucous laughter. Thus, it’s not unusual that Higglebys put the most effort into pranks, jokes, and absurd schemes. Whilst this does make Higglebys prone to laziness and complacency, they make up for it in mirthful company. You can trust a Higgleby, they are a fast friend for life-- but do mind your chess board.

 


Reputation:

 

The Higglebys are known as friendly, practical jokers and tellers of (tall) tales. Despite their reputation as tricksters, they are good sports when they lose. So long as everyone is having fun, the Higglebys are happy. Whilst a lot of Hobbits might think them layabouts and wastrels, they know also that a Higgleby has a generous soul.

Notes on Roleplay:

  • “Winning” is not always the aim

  • Play to maximise fun & warmth 

  • Teasing for fun is still exercising kindness (don’t be mean)

  • There’s nothing like a good story!

  • Enthusiastically include others!

  • If you’re low on social battery, indulge the Higgleby’s relaxed side and give yourself a rest

Values:

Affability, humour & daring.

Prone To:

Laziness, cheating & teasing.

Hobbit Likeness:

Meriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck & Peregrin “Pippin” Took

Family Colour:

Red

Family Flower:

 Higgleby

Played by Haydyn

Personality:

What is gold to a Hobbit when they have good company, food and their health? A Tallows is masterful at expressing this from the time they are babes. They will rarely cook or create the same thing twice and, whilst they are unambitious, they are adventurous in their experimentation, their exciting tastes leading the way. Tallows are happy to venture frontiers and make happy mistakes. They revel in the unexpected undertaking of their fellow Hobbits, cheering them on in their exploits. With a Tallows in tow you can be sure of two things-- adventure is upon you, and your life will never be the same again.

 


Reputation:

The Tallows penchant for inventiveness can sometimes land them in hot water; not every idea is a good one. Much to the merriment of other Hobbits, they always bring with them a sense of vivacity, thus are wonderful and welcome at any party. However, their thirst for brilliance can find a Tallow being easily hoodwinked.

Notes on Roleplay:

  • Play along, even if you might be in a predicament !

  • Approach ideas with zeal

  • Don’t be afraid of trying!

  • Encourage others to try

  • Find avenues for your creativity to shine

  • Fun is best had in groups, invite others

  • Be heartfelt & passionate

Values:

Intelligence, creativity, learning  & chivalry

Prone To:

Unruly, naive & gullible

Hobbit Likeness:

Frodo Baggins

Family Colour:

BLUFFWATER FAMILY

Personality:

You could be forgiven for thinking that Bluffwaters are quite serious Hobbits, on the contrary; they are delightful company and go to great lengths to show warmth to others. They do not think themselves heroic or brave, or in any way admirable-- except for their steadfast loyalty. Therefore, Bluffwaters tend to show brilliant solidarity when working together. Hobbits are known
for their genuine nature, and Bluffwaters are exemplars of that measure. However, their understanding of fairness can be rigid, and getting into a variance of opinion on matters can show their unyielding disposition. If you were to ever find yourself in the presence of a Bluffwater in the face of a great calamity-- you could count yourself extremely lucky.

 


Reputation:
 

Bluffwaters are fantastic to have on your side for all affairs, as they are
exceedingly diligent. Despite their 
reputation for this, they are lively party-
goers, enthusiastically dancing, playing 
games and intensely engrossed in
storytelling. Bluffwaters revel in the company of their friends quite utterly
.

Notes on Roleplay:

  • Relationships are great, play on them!

  • Invite others into your plans

  • Aim for earnest & lively

  • Give everything a try!

  • Readily cheer for others!

  • Rest yourself, where needed
