The Journey

Episode 47: Anyways, They Continue Walking

This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emmy prove, once again, that we are not qualified to do this podcast.

Characters

  • Frodo – a hobbit, has recently been stabbed.
  • Sam/Merry/Pippin – Frodo’s friend hobbits, have not been stabbed.
  • Strider – Human Ranger, also not stabbed
  • Glorfindel – an Elf from Rivendell, and also died fighting a Balrog in the Silmarillion.
  • Black Riders – All Nine!

This chapters has the group (still not a Fellowship) walking from Weathertop , crossing the Hoarwell River, through the Trollshaws (pit stop to see Bilbo’s trolls), and then across the Bruinen towards Rivendell.

Here’s a good map showing the journey so far.
