In THE HOBBIT program, you take on the role of Bilbo, the hobbit. You will be able to roam freely throughout Middle Earth, explore and discover this wonderful enchanted land. You will meet all types of creatures, some friendly, others much less so. Your adventure will be dangerous and exciting - it will be up to you to face the challenges which confront Bilbo.

If you are unfamiliar with Hobbits, you should know that hobbits are a little people, about half yuor height, and smaller than the bearded dwarves. Hobbits have no beards. There is little or no magic about them. For a fuller description you will have to read THE HOBBIT, but this description should be enough for you to realise that most other creatures you will meet in this adventure, including dwarves, will be bigger and stronger than you.

You will therefore need to exercise all your cunning and skill to survive.

At the point where this Adventure commences Gandalf, who is a wizard, has talked you into entering a new and exciting adventure to help out Thorin, the dwarf.

Your mission is to seek out the evil Dragon and return the treasure he hoards back to your home and place it for safe keeping in the chest. As a secondary mission, you must look out after Thorin and protect him. Should he be killed during the adventure, it is most unlikely you will be able to survive the dangers ahead of you on your journey!

Best of luck Bilbo: may you return with wonderful tales to tell on a cold evening in front of a log fire.
