Dedication: "Thanks to J.R.R. Tolkien for the inspiration that kicked this project off."
Liner Note: Tomorrow you begin the journey. The mountains seem so far away. The bitter taste of the local mead brings an almost hurried excitement, as an elderly halfling, two tables down, begins weaving a tale of bravery and magic accompanied by the local bard and his companions. Although not entirely believable at first, the song brings back to you a state of confidence and bravado not felt since the coming of age. Surely the future will hold mighty tales to be recounted by your lips - in between puffs on a pipe."
