Hobbits are little people, smaller than dwarves. They love peace and quiet and good tilled earth. They dislike machines,
but they are handy with tools. They are nimble, but don't like to hurry. They have sharp eyes and ears. They laugh and
eat (6 meals a day) and drink. A merry folk, they like parties and they like to give and recieve presents. They live in
the hills, and only rarely in above ground homes. They inhabit a place they call the Shire, a part of Middle-Earth.
Legend has it that a wandering Hobbit, named Bilbo Baggins, discovered (some say stole) the One Ring of Power and brought
it back to the Shire. His friend, the wizard Gandalf, eventually figured out the origins of the ring and deemed that it must
be desroyed. It was another Hobbit, Frodo Baggins (Bilbo's nephew), who took that burden upon himself.
