FAVORITE CHARACTERS

THEME

THE ORDINARY WORLD

Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit and as many hobbits do, he loves to be calm and quiet. Hobbits are very small creatures with fat bellies and hairy feet. His favorite things are eating, having tea, being calm, and quiet. He (like other hobbits) does not enjoy adventure. But with the exception of his mom and her family who loved adventure.

THE CALL TO ADVENTURE

Bilbo receives the call from Gandalf the wizard and the dwarves. As they talk about the adventure the stories start to frighten him so he collapses on the floor as they clear things up with him. They all think that Bilbo is a thief and want him to hep steal their gold back from the Smaug the dragon.

REFUSAL TO THE CALL

As a result Bilbo declines the offer and has them on their way. As Bilbo goes to sleep the dwarves head on their way and all is quiet like normal.

MEETING WITH THE MENTOR

The next morning Bilbo Gandalf appears to give him a note the dwarves left for him. After reading through the note Bilbo runs to catch the dwarves. Bilbo then talks with his mentor Gandalf about more to the adventure. From then on starts Bilbo's adventure.

CROSS THE THRESHOLD

Bilbo starts to get away from his old life when he catches up with the dwarves. From that point they find a forest and as they start to settle they see a light. When they get to the light they discover that they were trolls in the forest. Bilbo tries to be a burglar but gets captured by the trolls also causing the dwarves to be caught. While they have been caught Gandalf uses his magic to cause the trolls to argue until the sun comes out and shows the light causing the trolls to turn to stone.

TESTS, ALLIES, AND ENEMIES

A few of Bilbo's friends that he has made over his journey are, for example Gandalf, Fili, Kili, Thorin, Bofur, Bifur, Dori, Nori Ori, Bombur, Gloin, Oin, Dwalin, and Balin. While on his journey he has many good friends, he has also faced many situations. Afew these for example would be, encountering the trolls when they started their journey, when he had to face killing the spiders off the path, or the time that he encountered Gollum and had the riddle off for his life.

THE APPROACH

The group has decided that Bilbo being the most stealthy will take the most important part of the job with Smaug the dragon. They all decided he would be the one to go in after the treasure because he was the smallest and stealthiest out of them he was the best for the job.

ORDEAL

The biggest challenge that Bilbo has faced would be with Smaug the dragon.

REWARD

Bilbo earns gold from the dwarves as a thank you, many friends along the way, and his courage and love for adventure.
