Heh, I did this quest 2 days or so ago and had no idea it had connections with Tolkien himself. Although I was very happy with the reward (that pipe is very nice).

In case you have never come across the article, there was an excellent discussion of Tolkien in the London Review of Books published at the time of one of the movie's release.

It was suggest, credibly I thought, that he excised much of the violence we might have expected in a similar story, and kept the hobbits very placid and pleasure seeking, primarily because of the things he saw and experienced in WW1.

I agree he led a rich and full life. I wonder if his fighting in World War 1 would have been a part of that.
