Hall of Fire chats The Hobbit ch 15 this weekend!
“Under the Mountain dark and tall, The King has come unto his hall! His foe is dead, the Worm of Dread, And ever so his foes shall fall.”
This weekend, Hall of Fire returns to our chapter-by-chapter discussion of The Hobbit with chapter 15: The Gathering of the Clouds. Be sure to join us in our live chat on Saturday November 12 at the new time of 5pm EST (New York time).
“And ever so his foes shall fall” … or so the Dwarves think.
After hearing of Smaug’s demise from a trusted friend, the Dwarves are euphoric, over-taken by treasure-lust. But then cold reality looms — a large force of lakemen and Wood Elves approaches seeking recompense for their loss. an ugly confrontation looms as Thorin & Co turn stubborn.
With Bard as their leader, how do the lakemen now appear? Should the and Elves have chosen a different approach when they came to parley with the Dwarves?
What responsibility do the Dwarves owe the two parties? Will Bilbo’s stomach save Thorin and Company once again?
Join us in our live chat (#thehalloffire on irc.theonering.net) on Saturday November 12 at 5pm EST (New York time) when we’ll examine all these questions and more!
