Greetings! Tomorrow’s Hall of Fire discussion is about those brave little hobbitses, constantly getting themselves into adventures they do not seek… or do they?

How did Gandalf nudge the ball and hold the reins? How was The Shire perceived by the rest of Middle-Earth? What formed the bridge between their isolated world and the outside?

Join us pesky big people on Saturday March 2 at 5pm EST (New York time) in the Hall of Fire chat to go over the ins and outs of this great topic! Cheers, and see you there!
