Job application

In a country far, far away – in a time long, long time ago you live a quiet farming life. You was once an adventurer and a hero of sorts but for many years adventures have been scarce, so you moved to Hobbiton to live among the halflings. It has been happy years but sadly they have also been a bit boring.

Last week Gandalf and thirteen dwarves appeared in Hobbiton. They are looking for the lucky Fourteenth member to their party. They are planning to go to the Lonely Mountain in the far east. Thorin is the leader and the wizard Gandalf is helping them to find the hero that could help them on their dangerous journey to Lonely Mountain, but also the smart and resourceful adventurer that could help them to sneak into the Mountain and steal its treasure – and possible they could need a person who has the prowess or power to defeat a dragon in single combat.

Is this hero you?
