Lore

"Bree was the chief village of the Bree-land, a small inhabited region, like an island in the empty lands round about. Besides Bree itself, there was Staddle on the other side of the hill, Combe in a deep valley a little further eastward, and Archet on the edge of the Chetwood. (...) Most of the inhabitants of Bree and Staddle, and many even from Combe and Archet, were crowded in the road to see the travellers start." — The Fellowship of the Ring, by Tolkien
One of the four settlements that together made up the Bree-land, Combe lay in a deep valley on the eastern side of the Bree-hill. It was somewhat to the north of Staddle, but not so distant from Bree as Archet on the fringes of the Chetwood. Its name comes ultimately from an Old English word cumb meaning a deep valley. Probably founded before TA 1300. — lorebook


Scene 1: If you travel into Combe through the Combe North Gate, you will pass by a broken cart and three townspersons having a discussion:
Person 1: "What are we going to do now, Eric?"
Person 2: "I don't know...I thought you had control of the horse?"
Person 3: "I did...well, as much control as I can have over a 60 stone creature!"
Person 1: "Well, we need to get in to Combe before winter! We've made it all this way, we can't stop at the gate."
Person 2: "Yes, yes, just let me gather up this grain. We'll need it for the planting season."
Scene 2: On the platform outside The Comb and Wattle Inn are two woodcutters sitting on a bench and having a talk:
Woodcutter 1: "...and another thing...that Thorne fellow doesn't know the least bit about cutting trees."
Woodcutter 2: "Oh, you needn't tell me! Did you hear that Will was attacked by a wolf the other day?"
Woodcutter 1: "You don't say!"
Woodcutter 2: "I do say! Right out in the open too, just as natural as you please, charged right up and took a nip out of his leg!"
Woodcutter 1: "What's Thorne doing to set that a-right? Them wolves and spiders are all about the edges of the logging camp."
Woodcutter 2: "Oh, those spiders scare me near to death with them big hairy legs."
Woodcutter 1: "Their legs are near as hairy as old Will's except without the wolf-bite!"
