The Marish is a vast wetland in the south-east of the Shire, on the borders to Bree-land and Buckland beyond. Yet there is not much to see but ancient ruins, barren camps and the occasional farm across this vast terrain. Though there is one locale that is of particular importance: Bamfurlong. It is here where the Farmer Maggot maintains his farm; and it is one of great reknown! For often do young hobbits - such as Frodo Baggins years ago - attempt to steal some of his prized mushrooms! Yet this is not encouraged: the old farmer has three fierce dogs to guard his land. Caution, perhaps, is advised for troublesome hobbits in Bamfurlong.

Few players ever venture into the Marish, and those that do seek out old Farmer Maggot on Bamfurlong. It is at this famed farm where the old hobbit not only embarks adventurers on a series of quests, but a guide to the dreaded Old Forest is provided as well! Yet the wetlands can be a sight to see if one is interested in it badly enough. Alternatively, however, players can re-trace the steps of Frodo Baggins as he fled to Crickhollow.
