Trotter by JonHodgson Trotter by JonHodgson
2010 Jon Hodgson

Iconic hobbit character Trotter for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7. There's a Tolkien easter egg here for those who can work it out.

"You left your peaceful life in the Shire when you ran away to find Gandalf, the Conjuror, after he paid a visit to your family at your coming of age party. He tried to convince you to turn back, but as you stubbornly refused, he caught something
in your eyes that convinced him to let you have your way. You spent many weeks with him, until he deemed you ready to find your
own path."

Good one. I think the closest any canon hobbit came to badassery was old Bullroarer Took.

In answer to your riddle posed to the scholars: this was the original concept that evolved into Aragorn. I like it! :)

And, strangely enough, he was supposed to have wooden feet at one point :D

Oh, nice! Trotter fan art. Trotter is the most awesome character who never existed. I feel I must look up this version of him, he looks so grim and yet very essentially hobbitty.

He's in the One Ring rpg?? I only know about Trotter in relation to his being the first version of Aragorn . . . which is who I instantly thought of when I saw this piece. He looks really good, and now I can actually /visualize/ a hobbitAragorn, which I've never quite managed before despite all my attempts, haha. Well done.

Nice work! For the longest time I was staring at the tree, thinking the Easter egg was in there. Wasn't Trotter Tolkien's earlier version of Aragorn?

It certainly was.

Though I'm guessing this isn't the same Trotter. He looks like he's still got his regular feet instead of the wooden prosthetics that gave him his name.
