With so much drama following their straying off the path... [In reply to] Can't Post

...I'm not sure the actual act off straying of the path needs to be fueled by drama. Can't they just end up in a dramatic spot purely on their own accord, for the mistake of not heeding Gandalf's advice?

Besides, if written well, the company reaching the decision to stray off the path could by itself actually serve as drama (pure dialogue can be dramatic, too, as the LOTR-trilogy showed many a time), without outside forces interfering; Some members of the company might argue staying, others might argue leaving it (Bilbo either protesting based on what Gandalf said, or just trying to avoid it all), and because of the dire situation, tensions start to flare, forcing Thorin to dramatically step in and take command. Eventually, they decide to stray, which turns out to be a mistake, leading to an even more dramatic situation.
