Rudis I remember reading The Hobbit Companion...it has such tiny print! 1y
JazzFeathers @Rudis lt still look interesting 😊 was ig good? 1y
Rudis @JazzFeathers From what I remember, it was a lot of linguistic focus on hobbits, the basis of the name “Hobbit”, and where Hobbit related names came from. Not narrative at all, but interesting. 1y

Questing today. What do you bring on a fictional quest? Or, what is one real life quest you have? I want to eat pizza in every country OR I would bring a sword and invisibility cloak. (Post inspired by Sergentee products, as their source their fabrics from all over the world to keep fabric among traditions alive.)

MrBook I must dwell upon thy interrogatories 🤔. Great pic! 😊👍🏻 3y
