TheOneRing.net is proud to team up with WETA Workshop to celebrate the start of production on 'The Hobbit' with a The Bag End Giveaway!

Perfect for an office desk or at home, Bag End is a small scale reproduction of the best Hobbit hole in Hobbiton.

Not all questions answered? [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know if people should be talking about questions and answers here, so I'll be vague.

I've been looking for an hour now, and I am now quite sure that one of the questions asked (#2) is in fact NOT answered on their website. Frown I've even resorted to Google, and think I might have it - but nothing has come up as the definitive answer on their site, or otherwise.

Worse - questions are incomplete [In reply to] Can't Post

Question #4 implies that only three were stolen (one of which is listed in the question). Problem is - ELEVEN were stolen. Now yes, 8 were later recovered, but the question doesn't really clarify which two they want listed in their answer.

I must say, I'm rather disappointed in how poorly these questions relate to what you can find on their site (and Search is abysmal, too Mad )

Edit: P.S. I'm really starting to think question #2 has a typo or incorrect date now.
