    The Lord Of the Rings: The Third Age is one of the best games I have ever 
    bought for the XBOX.  I have completed the game in all three difficulties.
    I have experimented with the many ways to develop characters, but my favorite
    character has to be Morwen.  Her ability to steal items from the enemy makes
    her one of the best characters to develop as fully as you can.  In this FAQ you
    will find what items Morwen can steal from your enemies for each of the areas
    of the game.  I have not included "Special" Items that she can steal from Boss
    encounters.  Let's just say that if you are involved in a major Boss battle,
    you might want to try to steal from the Boss.  Many Boss encounters have armor,
    weapons, etc. that can be stolen.

    After acquiring Morwen in Rohan, it is beneficial to travel back to the areas
    of the game that you have already completed.  Many items can be retrieved from
    the enemies that you have encountered along the way.  Doing this also allows
    you to build up those skills as the encounters that were tough in the beginning
    should now be much easier since your characters are much stronger and do a lot
    more damage.
    
    The main idea of traveling back is to steal the items you want from the random
    encounters while using your skills and building up your characters skill trees.
    NOTE: Boss encounters can only be completed once per game so they will not be
    available to steal from when traveling back.  The Quest encounters also will
    not be available (i.e. Wild Men Quest in Eregion).
    
    In the sections below, I will list the name of the enemy and what item can be
    stolen from them next to their name.
