Ummm, it has been a while, sorry, I am so impatient! Oh well. If someone else wants to go they can.

Name at least 3 other names for Hobbits.

(I apologize; I've been really busy––and pretty much Internet-less––of late, and I honestly didnae realize that someone had confirmed my answer.)

Anyways, to answer Arwen's question:
~ Periannath
~ Holbytla
~ Banakil
Not to mention Halflings, Little People, and Little Folk. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Who were the founders of the Shire?

(I'll give you this hint: they have a connection to a certain town with a certain Inn.)

Do you mean 'hafling' precisely or are you referring to the form preserved in Rohan, holbytla, 'hole-builder'?

A Westron name for the Hobbits, meaning literally 'halfling'.

Wouldn't that then be the Westron word banakil, which means 'halfling'?

*nods head apologetically for taking so long to return to the game*

The rowdy young Brandybucks are taking up all my time--and they have more energy than I. *sigh*

Now, another trivia question: Which hobbits are known for wearing, on occasion, a certain kind of foot apparel? And what might that kind be?

I think this question has two answers. The hobbits of the the Eastfarthing who were mainly Stoors wore dwarf-boots in muddy weather. But Trotter, the wild hobbit, wore wooden shoes.

How old was Bilbo when he adopted Frodo, also, how old was Frodo at that time?

Hullo Joy,

Let's see now. Bilbo was 99, and Frodo was in his tweens ... * mutters a couple of mathematical calculations * ... that should be, 21 to be exact.

Hi Joy,

I believe Bilbo was a "well preserved" or "unchanged" 99 when he adopted the "irresponsible 'tween" Frodo at the age of 21 so they could share their birthday parties, 22 September.

Well of course I was present at Frodo's adoption, Joy. Such occasions after all tend to be well-celebrated in Hobbiton. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

No worries, Bethberry. Time is relative they say, especially when speaking of age and adoption. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Now then, on to the next question:

Where is the Golden Perch located?

Stock in Eastfarthing is right, Bethberry. Take it from here ...

They are ferocious and great terrors, even when one knows their names, when one is stealing mushrooms from their master, particularly since they have been told to eat Frodo should he trespass again.

Who are they and what are their names?
