    #21 and #21a is broken. Everything else *seems* ok, but several answers will need to come from asking about Shire history, or studying old Youtube videos.
  • I was also thinking the Wiki might help. I will find what I can and go from there.
  • just spent 2 hours on this & submitted the answers I could find. must sleep now!

    I can even say I saw him a lot of that time. Sorry Blithe....I just thought it would be fun to go back and see what is doable and what is not. I thought perhaps this would help people get back into them, and I LOVE these things. It also gives me something to do as I explore. I am fully aware going into it that these are very old and there have been changes. I thought it might be helpful for nebs...if you want to update any of them nebs. I have seen many signs for other quests in my adventures through the Shire, and it just makes me more excited to get to those quests. OK, I must get back to Mainland. :wink:

    YES! That was it! :open_mouth:
  • OK. I think I am as done as I can get with this! I have two questions that I could not seem to find the answers to, as well as a part in temple district. I will get the answers submitted for you to check out soon. :smile: )
