Point of Interest: Bamfurlong

Point of Interest: Bamfurlong -

Turbine's Lord of the Rings Online has released a new point of interest on Middle Earth for our reading pleasure. This time around, they are talking about Bamfurlong, a home belonging to a prominent figure in the Shrie. You can view the accompanying concept art by clicking the link below:


Bamfurlong is the home of old Farmer Maggot, one of the most respected - though unusual - inhabitants of the Eastfarthing in the Shire. Maggot's sprawling and fertile farm is located in the Marish, an area known for its bogs and marshes, to which Maggot owes much of his success in farming (particularly of that delicacy adored by all hobbits: Mushrooms!).

Beware, however, for it is a risk to trespass on Farmer Maggot's land. He keeps three vicious dogs – Fang, Grip, and Wolf – to safeguard his property against young hobbit-lads out to steal his mushrooms (and against terrible black-cloaked Men seeking unwary prey). Farmer Maggot is deemed wise, especially by the Brandybucks and Tooks, but is seen as a terror by those who would despoil his land.

Players in The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar will have many opportunities to visit Bamfurlong and seek the advice of old Farmer Maggot, who is rumored to have ties to another strange, old fellow who dwells deep in the heart of the Old Forest. Maggot's farm is one of many famous landmarks of Middle-earth seen in LOTRO, which Frodo Baggins and his companions visited on their fateful journey to Buckland.

Check out the art, here.
