Re: No crossbow in this game version

(Okay, they're not that bad. Except maybe The Battle of [the] Five Armies. That was pretty bad.) I still haven't seen that movie. Every once in a while I wonder if I should... every Hobbit film has a brilliant scene. Unexpected Journey: Bilbo and Gollum Desolation of Smaug: Bilbo and Smaug Battle o...

Re: Bree-Hobbits now have the highest Parry in the game

I forgot to say this, but I think and adventure to find the Entwives would be really cool. You could even do it epic and make the first couple of adventures about finding and meeting the Ents and then getting the quest to find the Entwives.
