“What’s he got in his handses?” said Gollum, looking at the sword, which he did not quite like.

Congratulations! The Shire is in sight. You've meet all the dwarves and Gandalf too. You've had an audience with Bard, the new master of Dale, and Thrandui, the Elven King in Mirkwood. You've even been to see Smaug! Now it is time to return to the nicely manicured lawns of the Shire, and well done to you!
To find Bilbo, you need to find Smaug and Gandalf, each of whom have a piece of the puzzle. Once you have done that, here's the equation to find Bilbo:
- North GC2C9FW Ask Gandalf
- West GC2CA4V Ask Smaug
In order to find Gandalf you will need to ask all 13 Dwarves in the Eccleshall Ring. In order to find Smaug you will need to ask Bard and the Elven King of Mirkwood (Thranduil). See the listings for Gandalf and Smaug for more details.
