Bilbo Baggins is a respectable hobbit of the Shire, devoted to raising his nephew Frodo. He leads a calm life, full of good food, friendly neighbors, and relaxing landscapes. The only problem is, well, the dragons.
With an increasing number of dragon sightings, the hobbits call upon the dwarves of Ered Luin to help manage the pests. Bilbo and Frodo unexpectedly meet one of the dwarves, Thorin, while at the market, sparking the beginning of a grand adventure spanning the length of Middle Earth.
