The hobbits once lived north, in a place near the mountains, but eventually moved south into the soft roaming plains. There, they stayed for ages, happily satisfied with peace. They were very fond of ale and other drinks. They partied but no fights or chaos, simply being eccentric about every celebration of others. The Baggins and the Tooks families normally were the only troublemakers. Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Meriadoc Brandybuck, and Perigrin Took were the most prominent characters in the story.
