surprised, doubtful (they took a great deal of convincing), unfriendly (they had wanted to live in his hole), generally rude about the whole affair

Quote:
In short Bilbo was "Presumed Dead", and not everybody that said so was sorry to find the presumption wrong.

Quote:
On their side they never admitted that the returned Baggins was genuine, and they were not on friendly terms with Bilbo ever after.
This last quote referring to the Sackville-Bagginses, of course.

Which of the Dwarves insisted hearing the Gollum story all over again after Bilbo had explained it once?

Why did Bilbo lie to the Dwarves about the Ring in the first place?

Bilbo decided not to tell them about the ring because they (the dwarves)praised him for his skill and they finally had no doubt that he was a first-class burglar.

Yeah, he didn't want them to know that he had "outside help." Bilbo wanted the Dwarves to think that it was his skill and intuitiveness that did it. GOOD IDEA LadyElbereth! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

The Eye

Letters which only appear when the light of the full moon shines on them. There were some on Thorin's map; they told where and how the side-door could be found.

Tomnoddy, what Bilbo said to the giant spiders.

More than a year since my last Tolkien reading spell... and just about since my last post here, I believe.

Ok, thanks!

This concerns the battle in The Hobbit.
*Which armies turned up for battle?
*Who were the chiefs of the armies?
*What was the outcome?

Answer all three correctly and you may proceed!

When the banner-bearers and trumpeters returned to see if Thorin repented of his words. He did not and shot an arrow at the main speaker.
