    Introduction	INTRO
    ============
         Well what an old game this is. I was going through my drawer full 
    of old Game Boy Advance games when I came across this little girl. I 
    haven't played it in ages and decided I'd give it a shot. While on some 
    websites I noticed they either didn't have a walkthrough for this game 
    or the other ones didn't really help that much. So here I am to the few 
    of you who still play this game.
         The game is turn-based meaning you take turns attacking. There are 
    really not that many weapons you can use for each class and when you 
    get the whole Fellowship it feels like you're a god till you get into 
    your first fight in Moria and half your party dies. Fighting is hard 
    but it is easy to overcome if you have some of your lesser party 
    members heal.
         If you like the RPG game style you will either like this game or 
    hate it. You don't level up any of your guys by fighting and fighting 
    enemies does you no good expect to get past them. If you don't have 
    this game do not go out and go looking for it unless you just happen to 
    come across it and it is under five dollars.

    ========
    Barrow-wight
     Damage: 2-4
       Health: 15
         Skill: 12
    The undead that hunt the Barrow-downs, they are weak but when in masses 
    they can cause trouble. With only the Hobbits fighting them though they 
    can pick a fight so avoid them at all costs if you want to save some of 
    your health potions for later on.
    
    Goblin
     Damage: 2-8
       Health: 12
         Skill: 10
    Goblins are lesser creatures, there are many and they live in Moria 
    were they overthrew the Dwarves. They are not that strong health wise 
    but a group of them can easier overthrow any challenger. 
    
    Olog-hai
     Damage: 5-10
       Health: 50
         Skill: 21
    Olog-hai is not to be messed with, they pack a mean punch, and one of 
    them can easier take out a member of the Fellowship if not taken 
    seriously.
    
    Orc Commander
     Damage: 4-8
       Health: 20
         Skill: 17
    Orc Commanders are rare but are that much of a treat. There like Orcs 
    expect that there skill is far higher than any first class Orc.
    
    Orcs
     Damage: 4-8
       Health: 20
         Skill: 13, 14, 15
    Orcs, the main treat that the Fellowship faces after leaving Rivendell. 
    There are many and they do pack a nasty punch if not eliminated 
    quickly.
    
    Spiders
     Damage: 2-4
       Health: 8, 10, 12
         Skill: 8, 9, 11
    Spiders are what the Hobbits face early on during the Old Forest. There 
    not hard but yet fighting to many of these creatures too much will 
    lower your health to a point near death.
    
    Trailing Plant
     Damage: 1-2
       Health: 2
         Skil: 2
    Trailing Plants are a sad thing; they live in the Old Forest and wait 
    till you get close enough to attack you. They only take one hit to 
    defeat but they do get really annoying really quick.
    
    Troll
     Damage: 5-10
       Health: 40
         Skill: 19
    Trolls are a nasty bunch that early on in the game they will take down 
    one of the Hobbits in no time. They should be avoided at all costs 
    unless you must fight one.
    
    Warg
     Damage: 2-4
       Health: 30
         Skill: 18
    Wargs are also a creature that in a pack are deadly. They don't hurt 
    much at all but there health is what keeps them kicking and attacking.

    Prologue
    --------
    Now we all have either seen the movie or read the book so expect 
    spoilers. If you haven't seen the movie yet or read the book, shame on 
    you. Just skip the Prologue than.
    
    Bilbo is throwing a party in Hobbiton to announce that he is leaving on 
    an adventure. After a talk with Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo heads off to 
    leave on his adventure and leaves the Ring for Frodo. Gandalf tells 
    Frodo that he is in danger and he to must set off on an adventure. 
    Samwise Gamgee is caught eavesdropping on the conversation and now must 
    accompany Frodo on his quest. Gandalf, as smart as he is comes up with 
    a plan to throw off Sauron's minions. You are 'moving' away to 
    Crickhollow, not. So here our adventure begins to try and destroy the 
    One Ring.
    
    --------
    Hobbiton
    --------
    Before heading on out explore Bag End and collect what few treasures it 
    holds. Right in the room where you start there will be a cold coin on 
    the floor by the door. Go up though the entrance hall and make a right 
    at the first door to the right. There will be a bronze coin on the 
    floor in the second room. In the third room there will be a sandwich on 
    the table.
    
    Make sure you pick up the silver spoon on the first door to the right 
    in the entrance hall and than leave Bag End. Head left till you hit an 
    end where dried leaves will be laying on the ground for you to pick up. 
    Follow the path and stop at the first house on the left after going 
    down two sets of stairs and it goes on to the next screen.
    
    Go into the room to the right as some text will appear. Pippin will now 
    grow your party to make you take much stronger against Sauron's mighty 
    minions. Exit the room than head up into the next, talk with the man 
    who will make you some pipeweed. When he asks if you want Longbottom 
    select 'no', talk to him again and than select 'yes' on Southern Star. 
    You can't use it now but later in the game it will come in handy. 
    Continue to go up though the rooms than out the final door on the left 
    to pick up a yellow mushroom in there backyard.
    
    Go right once leaving the house till you hit another house. Take to the 
    lady and she will give you a stick for your sliver spoons, it is your 
    first weapon, use it well. Do not let Frodo use the stick, he will get 
    a better weapon; give it to either Sam or Pippin for the time being. 
    Enter the next room and pick up the cabbage on the floor.
    
    There is a trader outside the lady's house to the left. The trader will 
    sell you a dragger, a sandwich, and a squib firework. Buy the dragger 
    and the sandwich, always by food from a trader whenever you get the 
    chance. Head west till you hit Bandy Harfoot's Farm. Here you will 
    battle a scarecrow. Walk toward it to begin battle, click on the weapon 
    you wish to use and than click on the enemy you wish to hit. For now it 
    is only one enemy which doesn't even fight back.
    
    Level Up! Frodo has gained a level!
    Frodo's on his first steps of a big adventure, his fighting skills will 
    come in handy. For the first two times Frodo levels up you will want to 
    raise his health rather than his skill or he will die quick.
    
    Here are some tips when fighting later on in the game. Attack one enemy 
    at a time, it will take down the enemy quicker and save your characters 
    from taking to much damage. Focus attacking the enemy closest to your 
    weakest character. The enemies attack your characters basically whoever 
    is straight in front of them so taking out the ones closest to the 
    weakest characters will help you later on. Pay attention to all your 
    characters health and have the characters in the back heal the others 
    while the stronger characters with more health do the attacking. The 
    most important tip of all is to protect the Hobbits at all costs. Once 
    you have the whole Fellowship the Hobbits will do you no good, use them 
    to heal and only to heal.
    
    Exit the farm and make your way southeast till you hit another house 
    which you can enter by a field. Talk to the man inside who will have 
    you deliver a message to Amos Appledore. Accept it but do not worry 
    about it right now because this message will not reach Amos for some 
    time. Leave the house.
    
    Go west and pick up the willow withies in the corner of the fence by 
    the tree. Make your way south till you hit the last building to your 
    right. Enter it and talk to the first man who will make you a walking 
    stick with the willow withies you just picked up. Give either Sam or 
    Pippin the final weapon; which ever who doesn't already have a weapon 
    on them. Head south once more till it moves on to the next area.
    
    ------------------
    Green Hill Country
    ------------------
    Follow the pathway till you encounter a man named Dougal Brackenfast, 
    if you speak with him he will tell you if you walk around the Three 
    Farthing Stone you will be lucky. Go east a couple steps till you see a 
    stone; this is the Three Farthing Stone. Walk around it three times and 
    a bronze coin will appear from the ground, how lucky.
    
    There is a house all the way to the west after the Three Farhing Stone 
    but all there is inside is some notes on singing in the hills, you 
    don't need to read them unless you really want to.
    
    Go up the steps right next to the Three Farthing Stone and go 
    northwest. A trader will be selling an old toby, a longbottom leaf, and 
    a stick. Buy either an old toby or a longbottom leaf. Go to the right 
    and follow the pathway down till you meet a man who wishes for some 
    pipeweed. Give him some and he will give you a dragger, give the dagger 
    to whoever has a stick and than toss out the stick.
    
    Follow the path and up the stairs, the next area will load and you will 
    see your first enemy of the game walk around, a wild dog. Walk toward 
    it and the battle will commence. Just click on your strongest weapon 
    and than the wolf, this first battle is a walk in the park. If you do 
    happen to get to hurt though eat the sandwich to gain some health back.
    
    Go with the pathway and than down past the girl. You will come across a 
    ringwraith; you do not want to mess with these guys.
    
    Level Up! Frodo has gained a level!
    Frodo barely dodged the ringwraith but proved that he is smart enough 
    to handle the tough path ahead. Now you may either choose health or 
    skill, I went with health again because there will be stronger people 
    later on who will back Frodo up in skill while Frodo takes the hits.
    
    Go back up where the lady was standing and than up the stairs to battle 
    a more difficult battle. Save before you start the fight or risk losing 
    everything till the last save point. There are now three wild dogs and 
    they do pack a nasty punch. Have everyone in your party attack the same 
    dog, heal when you need to but save it for Frodo unless you have extra.
    
    For winning the battle you will earn a gold coin and a red mushroom. Go 
    back to where you encountered the ringwraith and than go west into the 
    house. A trader here is sealing a red mushroom, a blue mushroom, and a 
    sandwich. Buy everything there if you can afford it.
    
    Go into the house in the middle of where you met the ringwraith and 
    accept the letter he tells you to deliver to Sancho Proudfoot in 
    Hobbiton. Backtrack to Hobbiton, deliver the letter to Sancho in Bag 
    End, get the gold coin, and than come back in front of the house where 
    you got the letter.
    
    Go southeast into another house where you can buy small leather armor, 
    fine small leather armor, and a squib firework. Buy everything but the 
    squib firework and equip the fine small leather armor for Frodo and the 
    small leather armor for whomever. Follow the pathway up and around the 
    corner to the right. Keep moving to the right, go up the stairs and 
    into the house of a gold coin. In some versions of the game you and 
    exit the house and than enter it again to keep getting as many gold 
    coins as you wish.
    
    Go west and meet an Elf who will tell you some notes. Go south and than 
    touch the stumps in this order; low, high, medium, medium. After the 
    nights stay you will be off on your own again.
    
    Level Up! Sam has gained a level!
    After a lifelong dream of meeting some Elves Sam has finally achieved 
    his life long goal. Sam doesn't really get attacked that much at all 
    throughout the game so increase his skill to give Frodo some man power.
    
    -------------
    Maggot's Farm
    -------------
    Be sure not to steal anything from Farmer Maggot until you are done 
    getting the bonus items for not stealing anything.
    
    A ringwraith blocks your path so you must go though Farmer Maggot's 
    land. Go though the easy maze and make your way inside Farmer Maggot's 
    house. Talk to Farmer Maggot and if you didn't steal anything you will 
    get a reward in Stock when you get there and now you can take anything 
    you want from his farm.
    
    Level Up! Pippin has gained a level!
    Heeding Pippin's advice you didn't steal anything from Farmer Maggot, 
    given Pippin the right to advance.
    
    Take the gold coin and the bronze coin from their house and than the 
    bronze coin, cabbage, blue mushroom, and red mushroom from Farmer 
    Maggot's field and head off to Stock in the south.
    
    -----
    Stock
    -----
    Go to the small wooden building in the center of the town. Speak with 
    the man in the center of the tavern and give him some pipeweed. In 
    return he will give you some cabbage to help you in the next couple of 
    minutes. There is also a trader selling a blue mushroom, a sandwich, 
    and a cabbage. Buy everything but the cabbage.
    
    Head to the northeast and into the house which holds pipeweed on the 
    floor. Go to the house down south and collect your reward for not 
    stealing anything in Farmer Maggot's farm. Have who ever has the stick 
    equipped to equip the swing.
    
    Go south and fight the two wild dogs that await you. They are not hard 
    one bit with your new armor and weapons. Collect the bronze coin on the 
    ground after the battle and than drop the cabbage on the switch to head 
    off to the next town.
    
    -----------
    Crickhallow
    -----------
    Merry awaits you as you enter the town and takes you to your new home. 
    Once he is in your party be sure to equip him with the newest weapon 
    and armor. In the upper room there is a gold coin and a stick for 
    Merry. In the room to the right there is a draught and a sandwich. 
    Leave Frodo's home and go into the house to the east to get another 
    sandwich. Outside the man's home right south in his little field are 
    some reeds.
    
    Go north and up the stairs, talk to the lady who will make some bog 
    shoes for you to cross into the Old Forest with the reeds you got. 
    Enter the house right next to here and talk to the man who will buy one 
    cabbage off of you for a bronze coin. There is a trader down the stairs 
    and in the building to the west who will sell you a draught, knife of 
    the dead, and boots. By whatever you can afford and equip your items to 
    the people who need it the most. Go east and cross the bog where you 
    will enter the Old Forest.
    
    ----------
    Old Forest
    ----------
    The Old Forest has to be the second worst part of the whole game; you 
    will know what the worst part is once we get there. It is confusing, at 
    times hard, and will have you walking around forever. Good thing you 
    have me to cut short of all the trouble.
    
    For now all but one path will lead you to the same spot and you must 
    find that one path to enable the next part of the storyline. In there 
    start area there is a stick, a dragger, and two red mushrooms all in 
    different corners of this area. Head southeast two screens to find a 
    stream. Cross the two bridges as a tree known as Old Man Willow grabs 
    Merry and Pippin and now you must rescue them.
    
    Exit this area to appear back at the start of the Old Forest. Go right 
    one screen and than down one to find a well. Drop a coin into the well 
    as a tune will be spit back out at you; note 1, 2, 3, and 4. Not hard 
    to remember at all, leave this area. There are enemies along the way so 
    either avoid them or finish them off. Head right three screens till you 
    appear at four stumps. Play the notes in this order 1, 2, 3, and 4; Tom 
    Bombadil will appear.
    
    He will help you out if you acquire some items of his first. First item 
    on the list is a blue feather. Exit the area and go back to the 
    starting point, go left two screens to find Tom Bombadil's home. Go all 
    the way down south and fight the spiders that protect the blue feather. 
    They can put up a fight if you have battled too many enemies already so 
    be careful. Collect the blue feather and exit the screen than go right 
    three screens to return to Tom.
    
    Now you must collect some willow withies that will free Merry and 
    Pippin from Old man Willow. From the start of the Old Forest go 
    northwest one screen, then southwest two screens to find the willow 
    withies and a bronze coin. Go back to the starting area and go 
    northeast, northwest, and than northeast once more. Go in front of Old 
    Man Willow and the willow withies will be planted.
    
    *This part is optional and only leads to some items and enemies*
    
    Go southeast once than northeast twice from the start to fight two 
    spiders that earns you a pair of boots and a yellow mushroom. From the 
    start head northwest and than southeast twice to meet Acacia 
    Willowthorn who needs your help to free here home of some spiders that 
    made it there own. Go inside and kill those nasty spiders, make sure 
    you are healed up, for your reward you will have earned yourself a 
    health potion and a bronze coin.
    
    From the start go northwest, southwest twice, northwest, and northeast. 
    A man named Hamor will be trapped by eight plants; you may either fight 
    your way to Hamor or sneak around the plants for an easy, safe way. He 
    will sing a tune for you; high, low, medium, low. Travel northwest, 
    southwest two times, northwest, than southwest. Three musical tree 
    stumps will be in this area, play it in the order Hamor sung it to you: 
    high, low, medium, low. You will earn a knife of the dead when you 
    complete this.
    
    *Optional part ends here that lead to some items and enemies*
    
    From the start head northwest and enter Tom Bombadil's house. Collect 
    the items thought Tom's house. There's a sandwich, a draught, a squib, 
    a gold coin, and a piece of cabbage. Talk to Tom when you are done 
    collecting the items.
    
    Level Up! Merry and Pippin have gained a level!
    Freeing both Merry and Pippin from Old Man Willow has paid off. After a 
    speech with Tom Bombadil, Merry and Pippin have never felt stronger.
    
    From the entrance hall of Tom's house make a left at the second door on 
    the left and leave though the next door to make your way into the 
    Barrow Downs.
    
    ------------
    Barrow-downs
    ------------
    The Barrow Downs is not that long or hard at all in one bit. The 
    enemies though, if not treated with caution can kick you in the butt. 
    Keep the healing potions on you and ready just in case.
    
    The northeast of the first clearing has an acorn on the ground. 
    Entering the cave on the northwest side, inside there is a barrow-wight 
    that guards a door. Defeat him and a clue on how to get through the 
    door will appear, "An oak drops it to the floor, only an acorn will 
    open this door." Well it is common sense it what it wants, an acorn. 
    Drop on inside the hole and collect the two items in it, a bronze coin 
    and a small shield. Be sure to give the small shield to the person who 
    gets attacked the most which is either Frodo or Pippin. Collect the 
    barrow-blade to the left or where you defeated the barrow-wight and 
    than leave the cave.
    
    Enter the cave to the right of this one and take the door to the right 
    as you enter the cave. Collect yet another barrow-blade and exit into 
    some more fog. Continue going straight till you hit another cave right 
    across from the one you just left. Defeat the barrow-wight in here and 
    claim once again another barrow-blade and in the room is fine small 
    leather armor, and a sling.
    
    Leave the cave than head northwest for another cave. Collect the gold 
    coin than go all the way back around out back into the fog and back 
    into the first cave where we first came into this area of fog. Go back 
    into the main hall and than head northwest to collect a bronze coin and 
    a small helmet. Go through the door and you will be in another area of 
    fog. Head north where a cave to your right will be, enter it.
    
    Defeat the barrow-wight and grab the reeds in the back corner and 
    through the doors where another riddle awaits you till you can enter 
    Bree. "Found by bog or stream, worked into shoes by the woodsman's 
    weave." This riddle can be a little more difficult if you don't think 
    about it. Put the reeds you just picked up into the hole to unlock the 
    door. Finally Bree has come and you will be safe once more.
    
    ----
    Bree
    ----
    Bree has no enemies in here so take your time, relax, get to know some 
    people.
    
    Enter the first house on the left and talk to Amos Appledore. If you 
    have the letter on you still hand it over to him for a nice reward. In 
    the back room there is a small helmet on the ground.
    
    Level Up! Pippin has gained a level!
    Being a delivering boy has many rewards, getting stronger are one of 
    them. You will gain two levels if you stole from Farmer Maggot and one 
    if you didn't. Either way Pippin is now at the level he should be.
    
    Leave the building and enter the first house on the left in the new 
    screen for a trader. The trader is selling a old boot, a squib 
    firework, and a yellow mushroom. The building to the northeast there is 
    another trader in the building selling a sandwich, a sling, and a fine 
    sword. Up the stairs of this man's house you can pick up a sling for 
    free.
    
    In between the two traders house's is an alleyway that leads to another 
    area of Bree. To the southeast is yet another building with a trader in 
    it, he is selling a small helmet, an old boot, and a sandwich. Enter 
    the Prancing Pony to the west to meet some new faces. Enter the room to 
    the west to find a Dwarf who has lost his boot, if you brought an old 
    boot from a trader talk to the Dwarf again who will give you a gold 
    coin. There is also some draught near the Dwarf.
    
    Level Up! Sam has gained a level!
    Sam is always there to help out people in need, this time his 
    generosity has paid off.
    
    Talk to Barliman Butterbur, the owner of the Prancing Pony in the main 
    hall, he will tell you that your room awaits you whenever your ready. 
    Head to the right and enter the first and last room to pick up a bronze 
    coin and a dragger. Enter the main hall once again and head through the 
    northwest doors, your room is the last room in the hall. Aragorn will 
    meet you in there and join your party. Be sure to equip him with a fine 
    sword that you can buy off a trader since the weapon he starts out 
    with, Narsil is broken and is weak.
    
    Leave the Prancing Pony and this screen also till you are in the screen 
    with the two trader's houses. Go northeast though the alley and enter 
    the building on the left. Get the leather armor for Aragorn and have 
    him equip it. Go to the gate near the Bree Armory and solve the riddle 
    to leave Bree. "Two eyes, a nose, and a gaping mouth, forged by fire, 
    square or round." If you really took the time to talk to everyone in 
    Bree you should know by now it is a helmet. Throw a helmet into the 
    hole and move on to the next part.
    
    ------------------
    Midgewater Marshes
    ------------------
    There are two ways to get to Weathertop, either by the Marshes or the 
    Road East of Bree. I will cover both and you can go from one area to 
    the next if you want all the items and levels.
    
    Go northwest to collect Athelas on the ground then head east to choose 
    your path, north for the Marshes or East for the Road East of Bree. For 
    the start we will start off at the Marshes. Skip down to the next part 
    if you are going through the Road East of Bree.
    
    Go along the marshes until you encounter an old lady who needs help 
    defeating a barrow-wight to the southwest of her. Go to the southwest 
    and defeat the barrow-wight you must travel south than west to get to 
    the barrow-wight. Return to the old lady once you have completed the 
    task to earn a gold coin and a fine sword.
    
    Head south till you come across three switches. Hit the left than right 
    switch to raise the stones to be able to cross over into the next 
    marsh. Going north you will encounter another set of switches only a 
    few steps away from where you crossed over. Hit the right switch, 
    bottom than top switch to raise the stones and than cross over to the 
    next set of marshes.
    
    If you head west you can collect two red mushrooms. Head northwest to 
    find switches with this time five or them to push. This one must be 
    done fast for the stones to rise for you to cross to reach the gold 
    coin and a small shield on the other side. Hit the switches in this 
    order; top right, left, bottom right, top right switch.
    
    Cross back over from the two items area and head northeast to one 
    finally set of switches. Hit the tops left, top right, bottom left, 
    bottom right, top left to be able to cross the stones to reach 
    Weathertop and the leather armor on the way.
    
    Level Up! Sam has gained a level!
    Sam's cleverness has helped you countless times on this adventure. Not 
    only where you able to collect all the treasure throughout the marshes 
    but also raise the stone to get past areas that no other person has 
    done before. Once again it has paid off well.
    
    ---------------------
    The Road East of Bree
    ---------------------
    The Road East of Bree is long and can take some time. It doesn't really 
    pay off to go this way but you do find some good items and a level up.
    
    Follow the path down and north and talk to the bandit who claims his 
    brother in the path to the north stole his mother's necklace. In the 
    middle of the two bandits is a sling on the way to both of them. Follow 
    the path by the bandit in the south to the east, once the path splits 
    up head north to fight from wild dogs. Defeat them and collect the 
    Athelas and gold coin they were protecting. Were the paths merge there 
    is a trader who is selling fine small leather armor, a small shield, 
    and a dagger. Keep following the path to go to Weathertop; you will be 
    stopped by a pack of wild dogs. Defeat them and you will be allowed to 
    pass on to Weathertop. Do not go to Weathertop if you want some extra 
    items, read on.
    
    Level Up! Aragorn has gained a level!
    Protecting the Hobbits is Aragorn's one main goal, he is doing well.
    
    Back by the bandit to the north is a small shield up the flight of 
    stairs by him. Go northwest off the path by the bandit to the north and 
    up those flight of stairs and than up the next for some Athelas. Go 
    back down one flight of stairs than follow this mountain west till you 
    come to a cave, enter it. Fight the spiders in the cave and collect the 
    items and the necklace in the room though either of those doors than 
    though the next. Talk to the bandit to the north and he will give you a 
    bow.
    
    ----------
    Weathertop
    ----------
    Go up the flight of stairs and into the first cave straight ahead. Get 
    the bronze coin and talk to the Wickli Rainshield, a dwarf who wishes 
    for you to deliver a message to his brother at Last Bridge. Take on the 
    task and leave the cave. Follow the mountain collecting the Athelas 
    along the way as you make your way up the next flight of stairs. Make 
    sure to hit the switch that is in the corner that you pass to open the 
    door below you take you can not access at this time.
    
    Head up the next flight of stairs right after you have climbed the 
    previous than head northwest. Go down the flight of stairs you see that 
    is next to the Athelas on the ground. Go into the cave and collect the 
    sword and bronze coin than make your up to the final flight of stairs.
    
    Walk to the center of the mountain to set up camp for the night. 
    Ringwraiths swarm the camp like bugs and Frodo is injured in the 
    attack. Use the Athelas you have collected on Frodo if you do not want 
    him to get killed by some attackers on the way. Go to the bottom of 
    Weathertop and to the east that was once blocked of by Ringwraiths. Go 
    into the cave and kill the spiders that guard a small dwarf chain mail, 
    a fine sling, and an Elven dagger. Make your way out of the cave and to 
    the east.
    
    -----------
    Last Bridge
    -----------
    Behind the biggest building to the east is a hazelnut and on the 
    opposite side of the area hidden by trees is a bronze coin. There is a 
    trader by the stone bridge who is selling a spider slicer, fine dagger, 
    and a troll's curse. Go in the Inn north of the trader and to the right 
    room though the door to meet a trader who is selling a sandwich, 
    watercress, and a cabbage, buy the watercress. Through the next room 
    you will meet Wickli's brother Bikli Rainshield. Deliver the message to 
    him and he will give you some squib fireworks for your trouble.
    
    Level Up! Frodo has gained a level!
    Through the pain and suffering Frodo still moves on and even delivers a 
    message for strangers.
    
    Enter the building to the west of the Inn and talk to the lady who will 
    make you a cure for Frodo if you bring her some ingredients. If you 
    followed above you will already have the hazelnut and the watercress. 
    Frodo is now cured and she will give you a health potion. The building 
    to the north holds yet another trader; he is selling boots, a small 
    helmet, and a fine bow.
    
    Cross the bridge and collect the elfstone that waits on the other side. 
    Let me just tell you now that Trolls are really strong and should be 
    avoided at all costs. They will give you nothing in return from 
    battling them expect a loss of health. So unless you want to grow a 
    level from killing a certain Troll of getting a certain item avoid at 
    all costs.
    
    There is watercress to the west by the river if you never got it for 
    Frodo's healing potion. Their will be footprints on the ground leading 
    to two different caves, one to the west and one to the northeast. The 
    west holds small leather armor and should be avoided, while the cave to 
    the northeast should be taken to get some good items. One Troll waits 
    in the cave; he can be nasty so make sure to heal whoever the Troll 
    hits as soon as possible. With Aragorn on your side the Troll shouldn't 
    be too much problem. The cave holds hazelnuts, a blue, yellow, and a 
    red mushroom, and a Troll's Cruse which should be equipped, it will do 
    extra damage to Trolls.
    
    Exit the cave and to the south by lots of trees is a gold coin laying 
    on the dirt path. Head east and into the next scene, if you follow the 
    path and up the stairs you will come to a hazelnut and a small shield 
    when you go back down the other flight of stairs and head west. Make 
    your way north from the Trolls that are from the Hobbit and enter the 
    cave. You will fight a Troll in here who was just like the last one you 
    fought, but this time you have the Troll's cruse so it should be a 
    breeze.
    
    Level Up! Aragorn has gained a level!
    Aragorn's work is never done, even in the deepest part of Trollshaws he 
    has managed to protect the Hobbits from certain death.
    
    In this cave where Aragorn has just leveled up are an Elven dagger, a 
    gold coin, and a fine dagger. Head up the stairs where you got the gold 
    coin and exit through that door. Make your way east and than south to 
    find a trader who is selling a squib, a sunstar, and a small shield, 
    there is also a gold coin and some athelas near by. Make your way down 
    the flight of stairs to the east when you are done to fight your final 
    Troll that guards a gold coin and watercress before making your way to 
    Rivendell.
    
    *Extra parts*
    This part holds some extra items you can collect here in Trollshaw, you 
    may want them or you may not, is fighting a Troll wroth the item?
    
    In the first area after cross the bridge a cave to the west holds a 
    small leather shield. The cave right to the east of this one holds a 
    sunstar. In the next area after going down the flight of stairs to meet 
    the frozen Trolls go east into the caves by the stairs you just came 
    down for a bronze coin, a cabbage, a pair of boots, and a yellow 
    mushroom. You may enter this cave from either going up the flight of 
    stairs you just came down or a little bit more back near the start of 
    the first flight of stairs. This cave holds a fine sling and a gold 
    coin.
    
    Now was that really worth it? You come up with that for yourself.
    *End of extra parts*
    
    Going down the finally flight of stairs and head east to the final area 
    before Rivendell. Make sure you collect the red mushroom, small helmet, 
    and the gold coin by the river, mountain and far left trees before 
    heading on the pathway where a scene will happen to take you to 
    Rivendell.
    
    ---------
    Rivendell
    ---------
    Rivendell is full of glitches and bugs so be sure to save after you are 
    sure you have completed your task one hundred percent of the way.
    
    Join Elrond and the others in the room to the northwest and speak with 
    Elrond to have the meeting start. Here you meet your final companies 
    that make nine members of the party: Gandalf, Gimli, Legolas, Aragorn, 
    Boromir, Sam, Pippin, Merry, and Frodo.
    
    Go up the staircase to the northwest of Elrond and through the door to 
    meet Bilbo. After a bit of a talk you are rewarded with your best armor 
    and weapon in the game, the Mithril Coat and Sting, a very powerful 
    weapon that Bilbo had acquired long ago on his adventures. Go back down 
    the flight of stairs and talk with Elrond himself; he will make a 
    potion for you in you bring him an empty phial on the staircase to 
    scenes to the southeast of here.
    
    Leave Elrond and go southeast again and than southwest to meet Arwen. 
    She will make it worth your while if you can earn it. Go to the 
    northeast into a room with an Elf standing in the far corner, talk to 
    him and he will sing you a tune. Note 1, 2, 3, 2, and 4, exit this room 
    and head to the east to the next area with four flower pots on the 
    ground. Play the tune, 1, 2, 3, 2, 4 and Lady Arwen's Amulet will 
    appear on the floor, take this back to Arwen for your reward. Up the 
    stairs by Arwen at the end of the path holds leather armor.
    
    Level Up! Frodo has gained a level!
    Just as Lady Arwen has promised, Frodo has earned the gift Arwen had 
    set out for him.
    
    Go back into the room with the flower pots and talk with the Elf 
    Glorfindell, if you picked up the elfstone that waited for you on the 
    other side of the bridge you will have completed this task.
    
    Level Up! Pippin has gained a level!
    Pippin has sworn a promise with Frodo to help him destroy the One Ring, 
    now he has even chosen to help those that are in need of his service.
    
    Go through the door east of Glorfindell and collect the normal shield 
    that lies on the ground to the west of you. Talk to Gimli to the east 
    near Rivendells exit, one of the Elfs has stolen Gimli's axe! Go into 
    the room with Elrond and go into the northeast room and talk with the 
    Elf in there. He will only give Gimli back his axe if you show him a 
    blade that stings; in this case the Sting Bilbo gave you. You will now 
    have Gimli's axe. Up the stairs in this room is a small helmet on the 
    balcony. Return to Gimli and now you can leave Rivendell at any time. 
    Doing it now would be best since we have gotten everything and all 
    those glitches and bugs are making my head spin.

    Mines of Moria
    --------------
    If you thought some of the other parts in this game where bad you 
    haven't seen bad till you've met my friend Moria. She is one bad mine 
    that will make you go into a corner and cry all day long. I'm going to 
    cover how to get straight through Moria no side quest expect for the 
    best weapon in the game, there is no point on covering everything in 
    Moria because of how big and long it takes and the items and rooms I do 
    not mention are not important enough to make it on here.
    
    Now that you have control of everyone be sure to make sure all their 
    armor and weapons are equipped and that one of your other characters 
    isn't holding out on the rest of them. Aragorn's sword Narsil that was 
    once broken is now re-forged and is his best weapon so far, be sure to 
    equip it.
    
    Moria is filled with runes that you must pick up along the way if you 
    want to get through alive. The runes enable you to open certain doors 
    whether it is to get through Moria or for some treasures is completely 
    up to you. Moria is filled with combat and remember fighting gets you 
    no where in this game so saved a lot and avoid combat at all costs.
    
    In the first hall there is Rune E and F along with a small helmet. Use 
    Rune E to open up the gate in the northwest wall to obtain Rune N, 
    squib fireworks, and an Orc biter. Go into the southeast door and onto 
    the ledge to the right of you and go through the next door at the end. 
    A group of Orcs await you but after the battle you will find Rune I and 
    a squib firework on the ground. Go through the next door to find a gold 
    coin, a health potion, a fine sword, and leather armor.
    
    Head back into the room with the ledges and collect the health potion 
    that is near the other ledge we have not gone on yet. Now go on the 
    ledge and as the path splits up take the south path and go through the 
    door. Go up the stairs and collect the sword and Rune R, make your way 
    down the stairs and to the opposite side to fight some Goblins to 
    collect Rune E and a yellow mushroom. Right next to you is a doorway 
    pass through it to get Rune I. Go back in the way you came and use Rune 
    F to open the gate on the east side of the room than Rune R in the 
    other room to open yet another gate. This room has two Trolls in it and 
    some Orcs so be careful. Go up the stairs and use Rune I to open the 
    gate. Pass through it and fight the Orcs, head up the stairs behind 
    them. Be sure to collect everything you want because there is no 
    turning back once you pass through that door.
    
    Collect the Rune R in the south corner of the room; open the door to 
    the northwest of you with your Rune R. Go through the southwest room 
    and follow this balcony till you get through the next door. Go down the 
    stairs and go through the next door near the squib on the ground. In 
    the next small hallway there will be three doors, one above and one 
    under you. If you go into the room above you, you can collect a health 
    potion, a helmet, and a sunstar, but there are four Orcs guarding these 
    items so take caution.
    
    Back in the hallway were you choose whether or not to get the items in 
    the next doors, make your way to the east door (bottom one). In this 
    room there are three doors again make your way through the middle door 
    by going down against the broken stones and than straight through the 
    door in front of you. Step on the switch as you enter the room; be 
    careful there are some spiders in here that guard a gold coin and a 
    fine bow.
    
    Exit this room and head south were you will see a health potion and 
    another room which you can now enter. This room holds Rune R and E, a 
    bronze coin, and a spider slicer. Go back into the room with the switch 
    and go through the door straight ahead, try to avoid the battle if 
    possible. Hit the switch across the bridge to activate one locked gate 
    in the beginning of Moria. Make your way west and use Rune I to open 
    the locked door to earn yourself Elven leather armor, a Rune N, a 
    squib, and a Fine Axe. Go back into the room with the switch and go 
    through the middle door right next to the switch to start off in the 
    beginning of this area.
    
    By the stairs there will be a door, enter it now. Ignore the switch on 
    the floor for this bit of time and go into the next room with lots and 
    lots of doors. Take either of the two bottom doors and hit the switch 
    in this room, exit out and take either of the two top doors and hit 
    this switch. Go back into the room where we ignored that switch and 
    step on that. The now locked down up the couple steps of stairs is now 
    unlocked above you. Climb the stone stairs and than climb the next 
    flight of stairs in this new area. Follow this path and pick up the 
    Rune D by four new switches. This can be called a puzzle but an easy 
    one with this combination; middle right twice, middle left, right, and 
    final left. The stone bridge opens for one of your final destinations 
    in this area of Moria.
    
    Level Up! Merry has gained a level!
    Merry might not seem the brightest when he hangs around Pippin but 
    don't let Merry fool you. Solving puzzle after puzzle has finally paid 
    off.
    
    In the room to the west after crossing the bridge is fine small leather 
    armor. Take the flight of stairs and enter the east door. Back in the 
    starting area once again, take the middle door for your final room in 
    this part of Moria. Orcs lay beyond this door so proceed with caution 
    as you pick up some items and into the next part of Moria.
    
    This next part has two exits which you can take, one that will skip the 
    Crypts of Moria and one that will take you to the Crypts of Moria. Now 
    by this time I know how much you want to leave the Mines of Moria but 
    trust me the crypts are really worth it and there are not that many 
    enemies so I will be telling on how to get to the crypts.
    
    Make your way up the long flight of stairs, don't bother with the sling 
    but pick up the Rune A at the top of the stairs. There are some goblins 
    by this rune so stealth is important, after you have collected the rune 
    go east and through that door. A Troll awaits you in this room, sneak 
    around him and go into the next area. If you go through the north door 
    it leads to some items and to the last part of Moria.
    
    Take the south door right after you climb down from the stairs and make 
    your way through the northwest door where two rune symbols will be on 
    the floor. If you use a Rune R and enter the door a chain mail awaits 
    on the floor. Go through the door to the south of the room with the 
    chain mail and pick up the three runes in this room, two Rune Fs and a 
    Rune R. Go through the south door and into the southeast room. The exit 
    is so close but yet so far away, two the south lays your exit to the 
    crypt but it is locked and Goblins are nearby in the center of this 
    room.
    
    Head into the north door and enter the room on the far right of the 
    north wall. Pick up Rune I on the floor and go through the room to the 
    north. Follow the hallway west and go through the door at the end. A 
    Troll waits for you in this room, it is better to get it over with now 
    than later. Make your way west around the outside of this area and up 
    the stone stairs. Hit the switch at the top of the stairs as the locked 
    gate to the crypt will open up. First before we make our way to the 
    crypt go west in this area you will meet some Orcs and a Troll, kill 
    them all for two Orc liquids, a sunstar, an Elf fountain, and fine 
    sling.
    
    Level Up! Boromir has gained a level!
    Boromir has learned well from his training, killing Trolls has almost 
    come second hand to Boromir.
    
    Backtrack your way into the final area and enter the Crypt of Moria. In 
    this are be sure to save a Rune D for it is your only exit out of the 
    crypts. There are enemies down here but it is worth it for all the 
    items you will acquire for your party. I will not say how to get into 
    each area since it is common sense but I will tell what waits behind 
    each door and how to get Gimli's strongest weapon in the game.
    
    For Gimli's weapon follow the path all the way till you see some 
    stairs, the far right hand door holds a Rune R, Rune O, a bronze coin, 
    a helmet, and Orc liquid. Exit this room and enter the one to the left 
    of it. Pick up the health potion, fine sling if you need one, a bronze 
    coin, and Rune R. Enter the next room to see three rune symbols on the 
    ground, if you have all the runes to place down, which you should you 
    can enter through the next down to find Durin's Axe by the coffin, use 
    it well. Be sure to pick up the bronze coin, the two gold coins, Rune 
    R, and ignore the bow.
    
    The door to the left after you have first entered the crypts holds a 
    small helmet, a health potion, and Rune F.
    
    The door right after the first one holds a health potion, Rune R, and a 
    normal shield.
    
    The door to the right of the last door holds two red mushrooms, a 
    normal shield, a bronze coin, and Rune F.
    
    The door to the right of the last door holds a Rune F, Rune I, Rune N, 
    Rune D, a fine small chain mail, a health potion, an Orc biter, a gold 
    coin, and an Elven dagger (Yes I know I spelled FIND with the runes).
    
    Down the flight of stairs in the main part of the crypts are a Rune F 
    and R. Go through this door to enter the final part of Moria.
    
    Go up the stairs collecting the Rune I, the squib, and Orc liquid 
    before going through the door to the east. Sneak past the Goblins if 
    you do not wish to have to fight anyone at this time. Here lies a great 
    Dwarf, Balin, Son of Fundin, Lord of Moria, let us all bow our heads 
    and remember him. Alright go up the stairs and take the north door, 
    follow this path but beware, many enemies have a bone to pick with you 
    so if you haven't save your game. You will come in a huge room, go down 
    the flight of stairs in the east and give all the items Gandalf holds 
    to someone else.
    
    If you cross the bridge you will move on to Lothlorien, be sure that 
    that is what you want to do. There aren't really any good items in this 
    area of Moria so cross the stone bridge. Congratulations! You may not 
    have beaten the game but from the looks of it you have overcome the 
    Moria glitches and survived the long mazes of Moria, the brain 
    twitching puzzles, and the hard battles!
    
    ----------
    Lothlorien
    ----------
    There is a stone in the middle of this area; if you read it you will 
    notice it says something about Elves, Dwarves, and Men. Choose Legolas 
    and follow the path around the stone, be sure to walk in a complete 
    circle. Select Gimli now and do the same with him. Now choose between 
    either of the two Men and do the same with them. You are now on your 
    way to the Elven village of Lothlorien.
    
    Note: You can just go to the mirror and speak with Galadriel if you 
    please than head east to continue onto the next part of the game, but 
    you will miss out on some items and the best bow in the game.
    
    Head north and talk to the Elf who sings a tune for you: high, high, 
    medium, low, high, remember it well. Collect the red mushroom before 
    going to the next area. Go back south and collect the athelas on your 
    way and than head east to find three stumps with an Elf guarding a 
    ladder. Play the tune, high, high, medium, low, and high for the Elf to 
    move out of your way.
    
    Go up the ladder and than down the next till your outside, move south 
    two screens and than up the ladder to the next house. Go north into the 
    next room to talk to Galadriel who gives you some healing potions. Make 
    your way two rooms south and talk with an Elf who needs your helping 
    defeating some spiders. Go back into the room where Galadriel is, be 
    sure to pick up the bronze coin on your way their if you haven't on 
    your way to the Elf who just gave you the spider task. Go west and 
    collect the lembas bread before heading down the ladder to battle the 
    spiders. Defeat the spiders than go collect your reward from the Elf, 
    an Orc biter.
    
    Make your way though the south door, southeast door, and than the 
    southwest one till you see another Elf, Celeborn. This task you do not 
    have to complete right away but you can if you wish, you must find a 
    creature roaming in the woods. It is much easier to complete if you 
    just forget about it for now and continue moving on. Go into the 
    previous room and exit through the door to the southeast. There is a 
    mallorn seed in the south of this area, make your way to the northeast 
    exit. Galadriel will be by a mirror in the middle of this area, speak 
    to her. Grab the silk cocoon to the east of her and make your way back 
    into Lothlorien from the previous area.
    
    Once up the ladder go into the northwest room and go down the ladder to 
    the southwest. If you haven't gotten the three items in this area do 
    so, they are; a silk cocoon and two red mushrooms. Go through the west 
    area and talk to the Elf by the trees by the path that will make you 
    Elven cloaks for silk cocoons. If you continue west you will cross 
    another Elf who will sing to you a tune for one gold coin, low, high, 
    medium, high, and low.
    
    Follow the path north into the new area, talk to the Elf on the path 
    were it splits. If you have a mallorn seed, which you should he will 
    give you an Elven cloak and lembas bread. If you don't have a mallorn 
    seed it is by the mirror that Galadriel was standing by. Go west from 
    the path and play the tune on the stumps, low, high, medium, high, and 
    low. The Elf that was once guarding the ladder up the tree has now 
    moved letting you travel anywhere now. Climb up the ladder and down the 
    one to the left of the one you just climbed.
    
    Go into the next area to the west and than head north, you will come 
    across Gollum a creature that once had the One Ring that corrupted him 
    and turned him into that. If you return to Celeborn and talk to him he 
    will give you the Bow of Galadriel, it is the best bow in the game but 
    pretty much unless now since we are basically at the end of the game. 
    Now that we have done everything in Lothlorien it is time to make our 
    way to the beach were you will get some going away presents.
    
    From the mirror head east to find your boats, talk to the Elf and 
    Galadriel will give you a Phial of Galadriel and Sam's Box of Earth. 
    Collect them and than move onto the next part of the game and the last.
    
    ---------------
    Falls of Rauros
    ---------------
    As your boats hit the shore Orcs come from all directions to stop you. 
    Lucky for you, you can sneak around from the south hugging the trees if 
    you want to avoid battle. You do not need to fight any battles here 
    unless you are forced to, remember they give you nothing in return for 
    a victory.
    
    From this point on give everything good to Frodo, make sure he has all 
    the best armor and weapons he can use and be sure to give him all your 
    healing potions that will heal him all the way in one use. If you have 
    a Rune I be sure to give it to Frodo now to save you trouble later. As 
    you go down the path the Fellowship will split and Frodo will be off 
    alone to climb Amon Hen.
    
    From here on out I will not be mentioning how to get any items but the 
    Rune I, all the items are healing potions, one dagger, and a squib. 
    Fighting alone with Frodo is extremely hard since he misses just about 
    every attack so if you do choose to explore be sure to sneak past the 
    Wargs.
    
    Follow the path into the next area to the southeast and than go into 
    the first cave you see on the way up the mountain. It should resemble 
    Moria so if it doesn't your not in Amon Hen. Go into the next area and 
    through the door to the southeast, in this area on the floor to the 
    south is Rune I a Goblin guards it. Go back one screen and climb up the 
    stairs to use Rune I on the symbol on the floor. Go into the next room, 
    climb the flight of stairs and into the next area for the final flight 
    of stairs. Your final fight awaits you at the top, one lone Goblin; 
    this battle can last some time from many misses to few hits. Use your 
    healing potions a lot and with some luck and a lot of spare time this 
    battle will be won.
    
    Congratulations! You have just beaten the Lord of the Rings: The 
    Fellowship of the Ring!

    Rivendell
    
    Problem: While showing the Elf your Sting he will not drop the axe.
    
    Solution: Try doing this last, do not save your game at all in

    FAQS	FAQS
    ====
    Question: How long is the game?
    
    Answer: I would have to say five to ten hours.
    
    Question: Why does the game keep messing up?
    
    Answer: This game a lot of glitches in it so you want to save after 
    every area and battle. Most of the glitches happen in Moria and 
    Rivendell; some have also happened in random times when picking up 
    items and talking to people.
    
    Question: How does fighting work?
     
    Answer: It is turn-based.
    
    Question: Why are you not replying back to my e-mail?
    
    Answer: I have either had so many of these questions asked that they 
    bore me, it is either up on my walkthrough, or I might not have gotten 
    it.
    
    Question: I heard a lot about glitches, how many are there?
    
    Answer: The glitches are everywhere. Most occur while in Moria and 
    Rivendell, there are also other glitches that are minor and can be 
    overcome by saving the reopening the game.
    
    Question: What is there to do after I beat the game?
    
    Answer: Nothing, or play from where you last saved from.
    
    Question: I thought there were more glitches to get money and items, is 
    there?
    
    Answer: Yes but those are the only two in the Extras section that you 
    need to know to be able to be rich and have all the items you want 
    duplicated.
    
    Question: In the level ups area you don't tell how to level up.
    
    Answer: Yes for a very simple reason, it is in the walkthrough. The 
    only reason I have put it in its own area is to inform you when they 
    level up, where, and for doing what. They are in the order in which you 
    level up to, if you want to know how to level them up just scroll up to 
    the said area in my walkthrough.
    
    Question: I have read where it says to level up but it doesn't say how.
    
    Answer: Yes it does, look up one paragraph and that basically says 
    either you will run into an enemy, solve a puzzle, or deliver a 
    message. That is all it says but when there is a level up area under it 
    that is your hint that your character will level up there.
    
    Question: Why so few monsters in the game, and why should I fight the 
    ones I come across if I don't level up?
    
    Answer: That's the way it was made, when you think about it though, any 
    more enemies in the game and you would be pulling out your hair from 
    your characters dieing all the time and not having enough health 
    potions. It is fine just the way it is. The thing is you don't and you 
    shouldn't. Fighting in this game is so pointless and stupid, you get 
    nothing out of it expect unlock some dumb items that you don't need or 
    just to get into a new area. If you see an enemy that you don't need to 
    fight heed my advice and don't.
