Hall of Fire chats The Hobbit “Roast Mutton” tomorrow!

Thorin and company set off. Destination: The Lonely Mountain. Literally shoved out the door by the wizard Gandalf, Bilbo somewhat reluctantly joins them, unaware how doing so will radically change his future — and that of Middle-Earth.

Seeking shelter one rainy night, they blunder into the camp of three trolls. Even worse, the trolls are hungry! Gandalf saves the day in the nick of time, and the Company discover the trolls’ hoard holds some interesting items.

Join us tomorrow Join us tomorrow on Saturday April 2 at 6pm EDT in #thehalloffire on our IRC server (irc.theonering.net) where we’ll delve into the second chapter of the Hobbit “Roast Mutton” and exploring the terms of Bilbo’s “burglary” contract, how does Bilbo fares when faced with the first real danger of the quest, the nature of trolls and the items the Company find in the trolls’ hoard.

Hall of Fire chats The Hobbit tomorrow!

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.”

It’s one of literature’s most famous opening lines. The hobbit Bilbo Baggins is smoking a pipe and minding his own business when Gandalf the wizard arrives, offering adventure.

Bilbo, comfortable in his Bag End home, isn’t keen on anything remotely adventurous. But fate has other ideas. The very next day Bilbo — and without so much as a pocket handkerchief — is off on a great adventure in the company of Gandalf, and 13 dwarves keen to avenge their forefathers against the dragon, Smaug.

Join us tomorrow on Saturday March 19 at 6pm EDT in #thehalloffire on our IRC server (irc.theonering.net) where we’ll delve into the first chapter of The Hobbit, “An Unexpected Party”, and discuss the nature of Hobbits and their customs, Bilbo’s near-disastrous tea party and our initial impression of the Dwarves and Gandalf.
