The Old Forest (Deed)
- 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.
To complete this deed perform the following objective(s)
- 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.

- 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
