"In a hole in the ground, there lived a Hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a Hobbit-hole, and that means comfort." - The Hobbit, by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien
The scenario 'The Hobbit' chronicles nearly every major plot point in the novel, from the encounter with the Trolls to the Battle of Five Armies. I tried to stay as close to the original story as possible, incorporating a lot of dialogue straight from the book. Other features include:
- Different gameplay methods such as stealth and strategy
- RPG elements such as sub-quests
- A level-up system based on the number and type of enemies you kill
- A bonus mission should you reach high enough a level
- Cinematic cut-scenes render important points of the plot
- An 'html' readme file which contains many tips and tricks, as well as a comprehensive walkthrough for every sub-quest and power-up in the game
- Different modes of gameplay for beginners and experts
NOTE: The scenario can theoretically be played on all difficulty levels, with varying degrees of difficulty respectively. I would play on 'Easy' though, for that is what I based my play-testing on.

I loved this scenario! i like the design and how you can do tasks for people. I was planning to make my own hobbit scenario, but now i see there is no need! Awesome scenario!

Smaug offered his surrender.
He was like:
May I offer my surrender?
I clicked yes and exited.
Sorry, this scenario is quite boring. Tasteless, should I say. No eyecandy. Everything just looks like it is made in a rush, the villages suck. The farms are placed randomly around houses.
So many other things too.
Sorry, this is not meant to be harsh but I really failed to enjoy this.
Probably because I have seen better RPG's.

youbar, you realize that this RPG (along with Istari's other work) paved the way for all modern day RPGs. He was not alone in this (EaZy, Reinfire and auron2 come to mind) but he was definitely one of the early giants ~ Khan
