..your life would be somewhat different if you had been born in Middle-Earth just after the Battle of the Five Armies. Personally, I would like to have been raised in Dale, then set off to find work as an apprentice among the Dwarven toymakers or even join the army in Gondor. Obviously I would not hold any great position of power, just a simple soldier, possibly even a craftsman of sorts. If that didn't work out, I might seek work as a farm hand or millers assistant down near Bree. Imagine my delight when I secured enough of a wage to buy my own horse. Funny how the mind wanders when you're bored. Where would you see yourself growing up and what would you like to see yourself doing in Middle-Earth???
