|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Oh, help, help! My friends and me, we thought we'd go have an adventure together and look for old Bilbo's treasure! But one-by-one, they disappeared, and suddenly I was all alone!
'I made it out safe enough, but they're still inside! I can only imagine what a horrible nightmare they must be having in that burrow.
'Will you help find them and get them back safe, <name>? I'd be so very grateful indeed!'
NOTE: Only one Haunted Burrow quest may be underway at a time.
Poor little May Gamgee found herself all alone after entering the Haunted Burrow with a large group of friends.
NOTE: This quest will be removed from your quest log when the event it is associated with ends.
May Gamgee became separated from her friends inside the Haunted Burrow, as they disappeared from her side one-by-one.
You should seek May's friends and nudge them towards the door.
Scared Hobbit: 'Eek! Go away! You don't scare me!'
Scared Hobbit: 'Hello? Yes, I was here with May! And don't you be trying to shoo me out. I left the party because I saw a glittering at the end of a corridor. A pretty coin it was, too!
'Now leave me be. I'll not be leaving until I've found a great hoard of treasure!'
Scared Hobbit: 'A ghost! I saw a ghost! Do you think it was the Old Took? I am so frightened! He was angry at me for eating his dinner while he wasn't looking one night...do you think he has come back to haunt me? O help; pray don't be cross with me! I meant no harm....'
Scared Hobbit: 'Hmm? I'm sorry, I was just having a bit of a look at some of Bilbo Baggins' old notes. What a curious imagination he had! Wouldn't it be terribly exciting if his wild stories were real?'
Scared Hobbit: 'Hmm. I was sure this was the exit. I as a left, then a right, then a left, then another left, then another left...and then another left, I believe. Shh, you're interrupting! I am trying to remember the way out. Now pray leave me be.'
Scared Hobbit: 'Snnff. W-who might you be? I put on a black cloak to sneak around and frighten my friends, but I'm afraid I am lost. Will you show me the way out?'
May Gamgee is outside the Haunted Burrow, near The Party Tree.
You should return to May Gamgee with news that all of her friends are quite well.
May Gamgee: 'Thank goodness they are all alive! I was so terribly worried. Maybe I will venture back in myself some day. I would dearly like a peek at old Bilbo's hidden treasure.'
