GETTING THE DEED TO BAG END The deed to Bag End is located in Bilbo's house, in one of the chest. When you have the DEED, you can give it to Lobelia at the Town of Bywater. Find the desk that has the KEY and open the chest in your bedroom. It should contain the DEED. Give Lobelia the DEED when you're done with all the optinal mini quests. FIXING THE WEATHERVANE TROUBLE Find Hal and talk to him. Find out what the trouble is. Seems that there's something stuck up at the top of the grain storage. Climb the ladder and throw rocks at the vane until you hit it. Get the EGG and STICK from Hal. Enter the grain storage to get a BAG OF GRAIN. FINDING FIREWORKS There are lots of fireworks lying around. There's one up in the treehouse. Throw one at the box of fireworks to set them off. FIXING THE MILL BY THE RIVER Talk to Ted and find out what he wants. Get the METAL PIN from Hal after you fixed his weatervane then go behind the house. There should be a strange mechanism attached to the house. Use the PIN and pull the lever. The mill should start working. FIXING MILO'S PIG PROBLEM The pigs are everywhere and you can't just go and pick them up. You need to entice them to stay in the pen. Put the BAG OF GRAIN in the trough then grab all 5 pigs. Milo will thank you and can now go fishing. SAM AND THE GARDEN Talk to Sam. He'll tell you to meet Pippin and Merry at the Green Dragon Inn. FIXING THE BELL CLAPPER Go to the Green Dragon Inn and talk to everyone there. The Shiriff mentions the clapper from the Shire's bell is missing and that Fatty is responsible. If you go to Lobelia, she'll tell you the same and also mentions there are wolves lurking around. Find Fatty and take the bell clapper from him. Go to the enormous bell in the middle of the village and use it. HELPING FATTY MAKE HIS PIE Fatty will need two ingredients for his pie, an EGG and HONEYCOMB. You can get the EGG from Hal after you fixed his weathervane problem. Throw rocks at the bee hive 3 times and be rewarded by a HONEYCOMB. Give Fatty the items and receive a stick or ointment in return. NOAKES'S TEA LEAVES Talk to the old man sitting on bench and find out what he needs. Search around the area for ATHLEAS LEAVES. 5 packs should be enough. MERRY AND PIPPIN'S ADVENTURE You can attempt to humor your friends by stealing mushrooms from Farmer Maggot's farm but I personally don't see any point in it unless you want your Purity Meter to go down. You can save before you go ahead and practise your stealth skills if you want. MASTER GAMGEE When you're done with all the quests, give the DEED to Lobelia then head to your house at Bag End. Find the chest containing your RING. Once you leave the house, it'll turn to nightfall. Turn left and go down to Master Gamgee's house. Give him the KEY. AVOIDING THE BLACK RIDERS Frodo's ability is stealth so you need to be careful when you're going around the Shire. When the yellow button lights up, it usually means a Rider is close by and you should avoid him at all cost. If you keep off the main roads, you usually have a good chance of avoiding them. FIXING THE GATE TO BYWATER Talk to the Shiriff and he'll tell you that the HINGE for the gate is broken and needs replacement. Find the HINGE in the mill. Use it to open the gate. ESCAPING FROM THE SHIRE Go past Bywater and find Farmer Maggot's house. Along the way you will come across several Black Riders. Avoid them by avoiding the main roads completely. Sneak into a hollow log on the right, run back across the road and sneak foward. Knock on the farmer's door and he will help you out. You are done with the Shire and on your way to grand adventures!
