Plans are set in motion for the fall
Shire Reckoning: June 20, 3018 (Forelithe 20, 1418)
Pages To Read:
-FR.ThreeIsCompany “One summer’s evening” (~p.2) – “going back would at least seem credible” (~p.3)
-Frodo announces he is selling Bag End!
-People suspect Gandalf of cooking up some evil plot (because Hobbits are ridiculous)
Elsewhere in Middle Earth:
-From The Tale of Years: “Jun 20: Sauron attacks Osgiliath. About the same time Thranduil is attacked, and Gollum escapes.”
-Stained glass art of the attack on Osgiliath, by Verdego. (If you don’t know what Osgiliath is, don’t worry: we’ll cover the history of Gondor later this summer!)
–Boromir riding to retake Osgiliath, by Nordheimer.
Links to Other Content:
–Anime-style art of our four Hobbit protagonists, by M-azuma.
–Green Hill Country, by Ted Nasmith. Beautiful painting by the master showing some of our hobbits wandering through the Shire (perhaps on a camping trip…)
Notes: Sorry for the delay – moving in to a new apartment is hard work. Not to spoil anything but Gandalf’s time in the Shire is nearing its end… almost time to leave! ~Tom
