DWARVES

1. "The High Pass" -- A group of Dwarves travels over the High Pass of the Misty Mountains. Bad weather and worse goblins make the trip a dangerous one. Start near Rivendell area and end at the Anduin.

2. “Tales from Erebor Book 1: The Investigation” -- The year is 2999. The Dwarves of Erebor are prospering and the Men of Dale are growing mighty. However a shadow looms over the land. The memory of Smaug lingers still. Foul things are becoming more bold. The axes of the Lonely Mountain are growing restless and the Bows of the Long Lake are wary. Several shipments of toys musical instruments and most importantly Weapons and Armor have been lost between Bree and Greenwood the Great. King Dain has dispatched a group of Dwarves to investigate. The King hopes that this is not an omen of things to come.

3. “Search for a Bride” – TA 2591 In 2589 TA, most of the dwarves departed from the Grey Mountains to go to Erebor, after Dain I was killed by a cold drake (a fireless dragon). However, a small group of dwarves, including a number of young dwarf women who have expressed a wish to make respectable marriages, remain behind with their families in the Grey Mountains. They face the continuing wrath of a cold-drake. A group of young dwarf adventurers from Erebor swear to free their comrades, rescue the women, and present themselves as suitors to their families.

3. "Terror in Moria" - 2994, Third Age. Re-enact the sad tale of Balin and the other dwarves of Khazad-Dum who meet their untimely death. The challenge will be to stay true to what Tolkien told us about this tale, and use your imaginations to fill in the rest.

4. "The Dominion of Smaug" - This would start out with a brief recap of Dwarvish history, from when the Dwarves under the Lonely Mountain were at the height of their power to when Thorin & company decide to travel to the burrow of Bilbo Baggins in the Shire. And originally, Thorin may have started with more than the twelve companions that showed up on the Hobbit’s doorstep.

The goal of the game is to reach the Shire, and Thorin might have had more than his known 12 companions when he started the journey.

Trouble will follow them the entire journey.
