Hobbit Frodo Baggins lives a light-hearted and jovial life in the Shire of Middle-Earth with his adoptive hobbit father Bilbo Baggins. It is Bilbo's 111th birthday, and he intends to celebrate it in style, as he will be leaving for Rivendell, the civilization of the elves the next day, unbeknownst to Frodo. The extraordinary wizard Gandalf the Grey arrives at the party and catches Bilbo before he leaves, convincing him to leave a powerful and ancient magic ring to Frodo, known as The One Ring. This ring was made by Sauron himself, a dark and mighty entity that lost in the war fought by men to save Middle-Earth, and is now scrambling for power. Gandalf explains that Sauron is on the rise, and that a long and difficult quest must be taken to destroy The One Ring in the fires of Mt. Doom, where it was originally forged. Is this simple Hobbit up to the task? Without training, brawn, or resources at his side, will Frodo and the friends he gathers along the way be able to vanquish Sauron, and effectively evil, and save Middle-Earth?
