Lobelia's Fireworks

General Quest

Step 1: Talk to Hyacinth Took

Lobelia is standing outside of Bilbo's home at Bag End. Bag end is north of Hobbiton, third road on the left, just north of the party tree on the hill.

You there!, Yes, I mean you. Come over here. I've work for you. I simply must have fireworks for my birthday party. More and brighter than that mad Bilbo ever had! I hear that Hyacinth Took over in Tuckborough has learned to make them, no doubt from that queer Gandalf fellow. You go over there and tell her I want a dozen large crates of her best fireworks! She lives west of the Great Smials.

Of course, I'll pay you if you insist. What a nuisance. I thought Bounders -- or whatever you are -- were supposed to do for us Shire-folk out of duty.

Hyacinth Took is in Tuckborough as the writeup states, just west of the Great Smials. Tuckborough is south of Hobbiton-Bywater, just follow the road and signs. The Great Smials is the inn of Tuckborough and is at the far south end of town.

Step 2: Talk to Lobelia Sackville-Baggins

Hyacinth has the following to say.
Oh really? Fireworks for Lobelia Sackville-Baggins is it? I'm almost happy to be able to tell you that I'm out of both fireworks and the ingredients to make them. The truth is, I made up a whole batch recently, but itw was stolen! And the Bounders haven't been much help getting it back, begging your pardon.

If Lobelia really wants fireworks for her party, there will be a lot of purchases she has to make. There's charcoal, saltpetre, brimstone, and iron filings to buy, among other things. So you go back to Lobelia and make sure she's willing to pay for all this.

If she still wants them, come back here and I'll lay out all the things you need to do.

Yea.... BACK to Lobelia. I think you remember where she is. I bet she'll be really happy too!

Step 3: Bring the coinpurse to Hyacinth Took

Oh yes, she is thrilled:

Pay for the ingredients? Why! I never...!

Oh, I suppose I must if all her stock was stolen. Here, take these coins to that Took. These had better be the best fireworks the Shire has ever seen!

Back to Hyacinth...

So, the old crow actually paid? I'm astonished. She must really want thees fireworks.

Well, I'll see what I can do.

The first quest in this series is done. It does get better, but there IS a decent amount of running around. It works best if you grab other quests along the way and hit the more distant parts as you do other quests nearby.
