  • Exposition & Conflict
  • Rising Action Event
  • Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who lives in Middle Earth in The Hill. He's rich and likes to eat and is not adventurous at all. Bilbo is happy to stay at home with no worries, but all of that is about to change. He is sitting outside his house when the wizard Gandalf walks by and Bilbo asks him to come back the next day for tea and then forgets all about it.
  • Rising Action Event
  • The next day, Bilbo answers the door thinking it's Gandalf but it's a bunch of dwarves who keep arriving until there are 13 of them and this makes Bilbo very nervous. They're all eating and drinking Bilbo's food when Gandalf shows up, and they tell Bilbo the story of how they are traveling back to the Lonely Mountain so that Thorin, the head dwarf, can reclaim his family's kingdom and treasure from Smaug, the evil dragon.
  • Rising Action Event
  • The next morning, after a lot of worrying back and forth, Bilbo reluctantly agrees to join Thorin and Company as its "burglar" and sets off in a big hurry on the adventure of his life with the dwarves and Gandalf through treacherous territory on their way to the Lonely Mountain.
  • Rising Action Event
  • Gandalf, Bilbo, and Thorin and Co. arrive in Rivendell, where the meet an elf lord named Elrond, who helps them read Thorin's map of the Misty Mountain that shows them how to get into the mountain. There are special letters that can only be seen during the right phase of the moon and the secret door, which is the only way in, will only open on Durin's Day, the last day of autumn.
  • Because they don't have much time, Thorin and Co. have to hurry in order to reach the Lonely Mountain before it's too late. As they cross the Misty Mountain range, all of the dwarves are captured by Goblins. Bilbo gets separated from the group and isn't captured. As he stumbles around in the dark looking for the dwarves, he finds a golden ring. Meanwhile, Gandalf kills the Goblin king and saves the dwarves.
  • Bilbo comes across an underground lake and finds a strange creature named Gollum searching for his "precious," the golden ring that Bilbo just found. Bilbo challenges Gollum to a game of riddles. If Bilbo wins, Gollum will show him the way out; if Gollum wins, he gets to eat Bilbo. Bilbo wins but Gollum tries to kill him anyway. Bilbo escapes when he discovers by accident that he becomes invisible when he puts on the golden ring.
