The Shire is the largest starting area in the game, and is full of many sites that players will be interested in: Bag-End, the Party Tree, Bamfurlong, the Town Hole and many more! As can be easily contrived, as well, it is where all Hobbits start their adventure. Not all of the tasks are as trivial as one may be lead to believe: Goblins, Spiders and wild Bears are afoot!
The Shire is the beautiful and peaceful home of the Hobbits: the lesser of the four great races of Middle-earth. Secluded within their own borders, the Hobbits care little of the outside world; instead they focus on their own trivial matters: food, merriment, pipe-weed and especially family history! Yet not all Hobbits are of this kind: many are emerging out of their holes to venture in the wide world. Yet will this warrant unwanted attention from the Big People?
