Thorin & Company set off on their adventure. Bilbo Baggins comes along wandering down the Road not knowing how greatly doing so will change his future and what an impact his journey will make on all of Middle-Earth.

Seeking shelter one rainy night, they blunder into three trolls. Even
worse is; the trolls are hungry! Gandalf saves the day of course, and the Company discover that the trolls’ hoard holds some useful items.

We shall examine the terms of Bilbo’s contract, the nature of trolls and the items the Company take from the trolls’ hoard. Moreover; how does Bilbo conduct himself faced with the first real danger of the quest? Join us in #thehalloffire as we discuss Chapter 2 of ‘The Hobbit’ – ‘Roast Mutton’.
