It is the year 2946 of the Third Age, some five years after the Battle of the Five Armies. A great weight has been lifted from the peoples of the North and their spirits are no longer bound by the yoke of the beast Smaug and the horrors of Dol Guldur. As the fifth anniversary of the great alliance that threw back the armies of goblins and trolls approaches, there comes word that the byways and highways of wilderland are not yet truly safe. Dwarves are missing…! Having accepted the task set by Master Glóin, the Company has begun a dreary journey south along the Running River via the Stair of Girion and into the Long Marsh… Having at last found signs of the passage of the Dwarves Balin and Oin, can the Company find where they went before the pair becomes a troll’s tea? Will the deadly flora of the Long Marsh be the Company’s undoing? Is it Amroth’s destiny to be forever shown up by Falco’s skill with a bow? And what exactly is the Marsh Bell? All these questions and more might be answered in this episode…
