Before the King returned. Before the Battle of Helm’s Deep. Before the Council of Elrond. Before even great Smaug fell… there was a knock at the door of Bag End that started it all. One of the most powerful wizards of Middle Earth, Gandalf’s sudden appearance one morning changes the life of Bilbo Baggins forever. Dragging his poor friend kicking and screaming into a life of adventure, Gandalf not only helps Bilbo realize his own destiny, but inadvertently puts the feared Ring of Power back into play as well.
