Re: Recycled Plots

It's time to pack the pony. It's time to move at night. It's time to meet the hobbits in the Fellowship tonight. It's time to wield our weapons. It's time to dress up right It's time to stick to shadows in the Fellowship tonight. How do we avoid Sauron? I hope he doesn't know. It's like a kind of t...
