It's been a long time since I've read any Tolkien, so I may well be
mistaken, but it seems to me that most hobbits were very stuffy and
intolerant, _and_ given to pipe-smoking on the list-field.  I think
the dwarves would be better for livening up events.

I'll say this about hobbits though: they have the proper Scadian
idea of a "shire" being a small territory instead of something as
large as, say, an English County.
