This all reminds me of my unfinished Hobbit in DF thread...

Gríma, wormtongue, slash the wizard in the neck from behind with his -steel dagger-, tearing apart the muscle.
An artery has been opened by the strike!
Saruman, wizard, cancels speak: too injured.
Saruman, wizard, has bled to death.
Gríma, wormtongue, cancels fleeing: too injured.
Gríma, wormtongue, was shot and killed.
Samwise Gamgee, gardener, was elected mayor.
Samwise Gamgee, mayor, has organized a party at Party Tree.

Um, Saruman cut down the party tree...

Also,
Bilbo cancels pickpocket: Caught by Troll.
Troll cancels interrogation: Interuppted by Dwarf.
Dwarf cancels Search: Interuppted by Sack x13
Troll cancels stewing: Interupted by argument.
Troll cancels roasting: Interupted by argument.
Troll cancels squashing into jelly: interupted by sunrise.

The troll has been stoned to death.
The troll has been stoned to death.
The troll has been stoned to death.

You have discovered a cave entrance.
Thorin Oakenshield, Dwarf, has become attached to Orcrist, an artifact Long Sword!
Gandalf "The Grey", Wizard has become attached to Glamdring, an artifact Long Sword
Bilbo Baggins, Burglar, has become attached to an unnamed artifact dagger!


Shouldn't that last part wait until they fight the goblins later?  And the spiders, in the case of sting (which wasn't an artifact to begin with; but Bilbo later gave it a name, and hence semi-artifactship).

Dwarven economics are still in the experimental stages. The humans have told them that they need to throw a lot of money around to get things going, but every time the dwarves try all they just end up with a bunch of coins lying all over the place.

"Gollum", Slinker cancels answer riddle: Hunting vermin for food.
"Gollum", Slinker cancels pickup equipment: Job item lost or destroyed.
"Gollum", Slinker is throwing a tantrum.


I can't remember what the colors are supposed to be. :(

People, do try to keep faithful to the books, not the movie.  Saruman was stabbed in his sleep, and 'off camera'.

No, Grima slit his throat from behind on the doorstep of Bag End. It was Lotho Sackville-Baggins who was stabbed in his sleep "off-camera" and implied to be eaten by wormtounge.

You sure?  Now I have to go re-read it.  I will bow to your more immediate knowledge if this is so.
