\'\'\'Author\'s Summary\'\'\' This is a short adventure designed to send the characters
on a romp through Gondor\'s rural backwaters. It can take place at any time in Gondor\'s history. Numbers and weapon skill are not crucial; cleverness is a stronger asset. The only prerequisites are that the characters must own at least one horse, that they must end a day\'s travel through Lamedon in the middle of nowhere, with no inn as far as the eye can see, and that they must look and act peaceful enough to be admitted to the home of an average farmer (which is where they enter the plot).
