"He regretted leaving home almost immediately. In the dangerous Lone-lands they found themselves cold, wet, and low on food. Suddenly, Balin noticed the light of a fire. Thorin sent their new burglar, Bilbo, to investigate."

The mission begins with Thorin sending Bilbo off to investigate a distant campfire. The player may choose to find a Burberry Plant for a cold Kili caught. This mission is where the first enemies are introduced. At first, the player fights through hostile plants and wolves. When the player must lower the water level at the two dams, the water leapers are found. After adjusting the water levels in two different areas of the level, Bilbo must jump on wooden planks to an overhanging bridge that is in the process of falling apart. The challenge is to avoid falling into the whirlpool below, which inflicts death upon contact. Once Bilbo climbs the dangling rope to the bridge and crosses it, he discovers the campfire belongs to three large trolls. At first he plans to return to the dwarves, but then decides he would gain more respect trying to prove he is a good burglar by pickpocketing one of the trolls. The player must then reach the pocket book without being detected. Reaching William's pocket book ends the level.

Hiding momentsEdit

Troll Campfire: This is arguably the most difficult and frustrating part of the level, as you must sneak past the three trolls without being spotted. Because you do not have the ring at this point of the game, you cannot walk in the line of sight of the trolls under any circumstances. The trick to completing this area is timing when the trolls do certain actions such as walking, yawning, dancing etc. The ironic part of this level is when Bilbo does get caught by one of the trolls after you complete the level by reaching William's pocket book.
