The Old Forest

From Echoes of Angmar

Reward: +1 Wisdom


The Old Forest lies on the border between the Shire and Bree-land. For years beyond memory it has been a forbidding place, which Men and hobbits alike have shunned. Hobbit-tales tell that the trees are aware and can move of their own accord.

Objective #1

Explore the hidden places of the Old Forest.

Find Bald Hill

Bald Hill is a treeless slope which rises above the treetops of the Old Forest; nevertheless, little of the surrounding landscape can be seen from here.

Find The Weaver's Den

Tucked away in a dark corner of the Old Forest, this is the lair of an evil brood of monstrous spiders.

Find Tom Bombadil's House

This is the lodging of the strange and powerful Tom Bombadil and his wife, the River-daughter Goldberry.

Find Goldberry's Spring

This pond is favoured for its beauty by the River-daughter Goldberry, wife of the enigmatic Tom Bombadil.

Find Bonfire Glade

The Bonfire Glade marks the place where the Brandybucks cut down and burned hundreds of trees after the Old Forest attacked the High Hay, the great hedge dividing Buckland from the Forest.
