Hobbit

From LOTR-TCG Wiki

Hobbits are a race of meek, homely people who typically dwell in and around the Shire, favoring homes that are at least partially underground. In this game, hobbits are a Free Peoples race. Frodo, one of the protagonists of Lord of the Rings and the chief Ring-bearer in this game, is a hobbit. With one exception, all hobbits in this game are Culture Shire.svg Shire culture Free Peoples characters.

The sole exception is Ted Sandyman, Chief's Men's Ally (18U75)LOTR-EN18S075.0 card.jpg, a Culture Men.svg Men-culture hobbit minion from Treachery & Deceit. This unusual quality allows the Shadow player to play this minion, then play cards like Fool of a Took! (1R170)LOTR-EN01S170.0 card.jpg that spot "a Hobbit" against any opponent. Such cards were intended to counter Culture Shire.svg Shire Hobbit decks, and designed on the presumption that such a character would be one of the Free Peoples' player's companions or allies.
