Bounder

'There's tell you're one what helps those in need. Well, if you want to help us Shire-folk, you'll have to join the Bounders. Most hobbits are friendly enough, but suspicious of strangers. As a Bounder, they'll trust you. At least a bit, anyway.

'If you want to join the Watch as a Bounder, you'll have to speak to the Second Shirriff. He's the only one who can sign you up. You'll find him at Michel Delving, near Town Hole.

'Second Shirriff Bunce is respected by most folk, so if he says you're a right sort, they'll listen.'

Adalard Took

'I don't know you, though I've heard your name. If you're interested in helping out around here, you should talk to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce in Michel Delving. He can normally be found near Town Hole.'

Belco Brockhouse

'I don't know you. if you was a Bounder, maybe people around here would welcome you more. You should go speak to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce out near Town Hole in Michel Delving.'

Bingo Bolger

'Plenty of problems around here fr a Bounder to solve, but not for some stranger I don't know. If you want to help out, you should speak with Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce in Michel Delving. His offices are near Town Hole.'

Bodo Goodbody

'There are lots of strangers about these days. We need more Bounders! If you want to help out, you should talk to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce in Michel Delving. He can usually be found near Town Hole.'

Bounder Chubb

'We can use more Bounders. If you wnat to help, speak to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce in Michel Delving. he can be found near Town Hole.'

Bounder Primstone

'Now what would you be doing about here? Must admit though, you have a friendly look about you, so you probably won't do any harm. Still, folk around here will be distrustful of you, unless you talk to Second Shirriff Bunce. he's captain of the Watch. If you're looking for work, he may even let you join the Bounders.

'Second Shirrif Bunce has his offices out at Town Hole in Michel Delving. That's in the Westfarthing.

'If you join the Bounders, folk won't likely be so distrustful of you. Might even ask you for help with a few things. And trust me, that'll keep you busier than you like.'

Cam Puddifoot

'I don't know you, and I don't trust folks I don't know. If you was a Bounder, maybe I'd give you a little more time. Youwant to be a Bounder, speak to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce in Michel Delving. You can find him near Town Hole.'

Edilina Proudfoot

'I hear the Bounders need more people. You might want to talk to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce near Town Hole in Michel Delving.'

Everard Holebourne

'If you want to help us Shire-folk, you'll have to join the Bounders. You should go over to Michel Delving and talk to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce. He'll be near Town Hole, I'm sure.'

Farmer Maggot

'You there, get off my land! I've had enough trouble with strangers trapessing over my land without so much as a 'Hallo!'

'If you've a problem, go see Bodo Bunce, the Second Shirriff over in Michel Delving. You'll find him near Town Hole.

'Now off with you!'

Filbert Bolger

'Things ain't right here these days. Maybe getting more Bounders would help. if you don't have anything better to do, maybe you should go over to Michel Delving to talk to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce. He'll be near Town Hole, like as not.'

Gaffer Gamgee

'Eh, wheat're you doing about here? Strange folk aren't too welcome in Hobbiton! i suppose you won't do no harm, though. You've a friendlier look about you than some others I've seen. I suppose you could stay, but you'll have to speak to Second Shirriff Bunce about that.

'Bunce is nigh on the captain of the Bounders, although old Flourdumpling might tell you different! You'll find him near Town Hole in Michel Delving. That's away west of here.

'Now, I've work to do. Gardens don't tend themselves, you know!'

Gammer Boffin

'Eh? Who are you? I want no strangers shadowing my doorstep. I'm not old Mad Baggins looking for an adventure! if you want to be walking about, bothering the folk here, you'll have to get permission from Second Shirriff Bunce.

'He's Captain of the Watch out by Town Hole in Michel Delving, west of here. He might even have a use for you as a Bounder.

'Now off with you!'

Hildifons Took II

'I think you look like Bounder material! You should go over to Michel Delving to talk to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce about a job. You will probably find him near Town Hole.'

Holly Hornblower

'Hello there! Have you heard that the Bounders are expanding? Not just their belts, mind you! You should go talk to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce in Michel Delving if you're interested. His offices are near Town Hole.'

Keeper Brombard Foxtail

'Why, hullo there! I must say, we've been getting more than our share of strangers through this town, dwarves and other queer lot. Most folk will be polite enough, if you keep to yourself.

'I suppose though that if you spoke to Second Shirriff Bunce -- he's captain of the Watch -- and he made you a Bounder, you might find a better welcome. Yes, yes, that would do it. The Shirriff can be found somewhere about in Michel Delving.

'Now you don't seem like a bad lot, so Isuppose he might let you join the Watch as a Bounder.'

Prisca Underhill

'Well now, look at you. Do you want to help out around the Shire? You should go over to Michel Delving and talk to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce, so's you can become a Bounder. He can be found near Town Hole.'

Rollo Boffin

'No, I don't know you. Thought I did, but I don't. Say! Maybe you should go talk to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce over in Michel Delving. I hear he's trying to hire more Bounders, and maybe you'll do for that job. is offices are near Town Hole.'

Shirriff Hob Hayward

'If you're wanting to travel freely about the Shire, you'll want to talk to the Second Shirriff, Bodo Bunce. See, folk here in the Shire, they don't take to strangers much. Lot of queer folk trapessing through here recently. Now then, if Bunce lets you join the Bounders, well then I'll wager you'd find a warmer welcome!

'You can find Bunce near Town Hole in Michel Delving. That's a ways west of here.

'Good luck to you, stranger.'

Shirriff Robin Smallburrow

'Hullo there, what's a body like you doing about in Hobbiton? Oh well, you don't look of a mind to do much harm, now do you?

'Still, most folk won't have a thing to do with you, not unless you talk to Second Shirriff Bunce down n Michel Delving. He's in charge of the Watch. I fact, he may let you join as a Bounder, although that would be odd.

'As a Bounder though, most folk won't be so suspicious of you.'

Thain Paladin Took II

'I am sorry, I cannot grant an audience to just any stranger. I must admit there is a favourable look to you, so you may be welcome in the Shire. However, I would want to leave that decision in the hands of the Second Shirriff, Bodo Bunce. In fact, he may allow you to become a Bounder of the Watch, although that would be most unusual.

'Shirriff Bunce can be found in Michel Delving to the west. I recommend you speak with him as soon as possible.

'Farewell.'

Wilcome Tunnelly

'Who's this? I got no time dealing with some stranger walking about and disturbing the peace. Got enough problems as it is with those cursed spiders!

'Talk to Second Shirriff Bunce in Michel Delving; he's captain of the Watch. He's oft looking for Bounders to help in keeping the peace. If he feels comfortable trusting you, then maybe I'll have some work for you.

'But for now, be off with you!'

Wilimar Bolger

'What? Who are you, again? Oh, oh, I see. You might want to go over to Michel Delving and talk to Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce. I hear he's hiring lots of new Bounders. His offices are near Town Hole.'

Background

In order for you to help the Hobbits of the Shire, you will need to join the Bounders of the Watch.

Objective 1

Second Shirriff Bunce can be found outside Town Hole in Michel Delving. Town Hole is in a walled enclosure on the north side of town.

You should speak to the Second Shirriff of the Shire Watch, Bodo Bunce, in Michel Delving, if you wish to join the Bounders.

Bounder: 'If you are looking for Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce, you'll find him in Michel Delving.'
Second Shirriff Bodo Bunce: 'So you were sent my way, were you? Of course, we usually only accept hobbits -- Shire-folk, you understand -- but these are not usual times, I'm afraid, and we can use any hob...er, any person of good will we can find.
'Help out as many Shire-folk as you can, and you'll rise through the ranks. All who would protect the people of the Shire are welcome! We hobbits are a peaceful folk, and our cares may seem of small importance to others -- the delivery of the mail, the tasting of fine foods, the lighting of fireworks -- but do not be misled. Our peaceful ways are threatened, and danger can be found in the unlikeliest places.
'Aid the Shire-folk with their daily concerns, but if you travel to more distant villages, such as Needlehole, Overhill, or Brockenborings...bring a weapon with you, Bounder. Life is dangerous on the borders of the Shire, and the further you get from Michel Delving and Hobbiton, the more likely you are to see trouble.'
