Bilbo Baggins was a respectable hobbit, who never had any adventures-or didn't, until Gandalf persuaded him to go along with Thorin Oakenshield and his company of Dwarves to retrieve the Arkenstone treasure. During his journey, Bilbo finds a magic ring, helps the dwarves to escape from giants and wood-elves, and plays an increasingly important role in the relations between the five armies that gather in order to attempt to take their fair share of Smaug the Dragon's horde, returning to the Shire with plenty of stories to tell.
