Hall Of Fire Chats This Weekend
Frode @ 7:30 pm EST

Having escaped the Goblins, Bilbo finds that he is still lost in the
vastness of Middle-Earth. His good luck saves him once again though and he soon locates his friends. He tells the story about Gollum to the Compay, but seems disinclined to talk about the Ring. Fearing Goblins out to avenge their dead leader Gandalf urges the Company on. They soon find themselves facing a different enemy however. A band of Wargs forces them to seek refugee in the trees.

Considering what Bilbo does and says in this chapter, do you think the
Ring is already at work? Where did the Great Eagles come from and what
exactly are the Goblins and the Wargs planning? This weekend in
#thehalloffire we discuss Chapter 6 of 'The Hobbit' - Out of the
Frying-Pan into the Fire.
