A strange invitation from cousin Bilbo, mentioning that he's in need of help. Most odd! But then again, a great many things about that particular Hobbit have been odd ever since that business with the Dragon. Nothing wrong with taking a stroll and helping old Bilbo out I suppose. After all, there aren't any dangers to worry about here in The Shire...
The One Ring Starter Set contains all you need to take your first step into Middle-earth and experience the adventures Hobbits get up to. With streamlined rules and ready to go characters, it is easy to quickly sit down and play the game. The One Ring is set between the time Bilbo went on his journey and the events in The Lord of the Rings, allowing you to explore the Shire by taking on the roles of some Hobbits whose children will go on to do extraordinary things, such as Drogo Baggins, Rory Brandybuck, and Esmeralda Took.
