A TOR Guide to The Shire and Bree-land

The unique One Ring rules set invites tinkering and secondary creation. Whilst The One Ring works brilliantly as written, we provide this forum for those who want to make their own home-brewed versions of the rules. Note that none of these should be taken as 'official'.

This is great, thanks for signposting me to it. Just one minor typo noted under the entry for Bromdur who is identified as the Innkeeper for the "Prancy Pony"!

It's interesting to see the various names for Barliman Butterbur's father and grandfather! I saw a "Tom Butterbur" on another thread, now your Bromdur. Personally I am going for Barnabas Butterbur as his (I think) grandfather for my adventure given the timeline. I was looking through the Histories of Middle-Earth and Barnabas Butterbur was the original name for Barliman used by Tolkien in early drafts so it clearly has "JRRT approval"! I may 'borrow' Bromdur as his son (and thus father of Barliman) though if you don't mind!
"It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door," he used to say. "You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no telling where you might be swept off to."

That's fine. I was just looking for a name that seemed to fit and that had Anglo-Saxon roots. And thanks for alerting me to the typo!
