I'm confused...you answered to one question:
Quote:
Was the fellowship involved in this thing? I don't know...it wasn't mentioned...I'd cautiously say yes.
Then you said it takes place in the Shire. The entire fellowship was never in the Shire together - some of them not at all. Do you mean just the hobbits? If so, are you talking about the Scouring of the Shire?

It happened in the Shire while they were there, but Idon't know if they were actually involved in it.

It's not the scouring of the Shire...

The Saucepan Man has been trapped in the Barrow!
Question

It's probably worth asking more yes/no questions to narrow it down, rather than guessing at every incident that took place in the Shire while members of the Fellowship were there.

So, with that in mind, did this event take place as a result of Sharkey taking over?

Good idea Saucepan!
Did it take place before the hobbits left the shire with the Ring?

This event has been happening since the beginning of the Shire(I think), and is not, or will not be, affected by anything else that happens(unless the Shire ceases to exist)

I hope that was a clue... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Then it must be a holiday or a celebration. Right? Someone else has to guess its name though, because I have no idea. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
