There were two editions of The Hobbit that were written. Prior to The Lord of the Rings, the ring itself had no history, and so Bilbo actually did reveal that he obtained the ring from Gollum. Later, when the Ring's malevolent history was dabbled into, Tolkein realized Gollum would never give up the ring willingly, and re-wrote the chapter in later editions to reflect that Bilbo more or less stole the ring.

Canonically, Bilbo told Gandalf and the Dwarves that it was a prize for winning the riddle game. Gandalf had his suspicions, however, and managed to get the true story from Bilbo much later. The fact that Bilbo would lie about the entire incident struck Gandalf as alarming, since Hobbits weren't prone to such things as lying. One might say that the reason Bilbo lied was due to the effect that the Ring was having on him.

It is possible the Ring had already begun to affect Bilbo, and he would not want any to know what he had, and therefore try to take it from him.


Bilbo was recruited by Gandalf to join the dwarves' mission as a master thief. Bilbo does not tell his friends about the magic ring because he wants to earn their respect as a thief. Alternatively, it could be the ring's power already beginning to assert its influence over Biblo. In the end, however, Bilbo does tell the dwarves about the ring and that it has the ability to make him invisible, which was what enabled him to escape Gollum, the goblins, and to sneak into the dwarves' camp while Balin was on watch.


he tells them because they needed to know


He uses some of his magic with fire. Gandalf was able to disappear and avoid being captured by the goblins because of Bilbo's warning shout. He then made the goblin's fire burst out brightly and used his sword to kill the goblin king.


He knows Bilbo has 'a' magic ring, though he is not sure of its nature just yet; it is a suspicion he needed to confirm.


They feel more safe knowing that Bilbo just saved all of their lives. And they treat him with more respect.


He is warned by Bilbo's shout and manages to avoid capture by the goblins. He follows the goblins and their captives through the mountain. He uses his magic to kill the great goblin and to douse the fire and lights. He then leads them away from the goblins and out of the mountain. Unfortunately, Bilbo is 'lost' in the process.


The Hobbit is a predecessor to the the well known Lord of the Rings trilogy.The story follows Bilbo Baggins, a rather plump hobbits, as he finds himself unwittingly drawn into an adventure by the wizard, Gandalf. Along with thirteen dwarves, he finds himself bound for Lonely Mountain, where a dragon named Smaug hordes stolen treasure. But the road is wrought with danger.A hobbit of the peaceful land of the Shire, is recruited by a wizard and 13 dwarves to help them retake their mountain Erebor from the clutches of an evil dragon. To journey there they face grave perils as they encounter Goblins and wolves and magic forest, giant spiders and elves. Using magic and quick thinking, with the help of giant eagles and man who can turn into a bear, they manage to complete their quest, only to realize that there are more important things in life.Bilbo Baggins lives a quiet, peaceful life in his comfortable hole at Bag End. Bilbo lives in a hole because he is a hobbit-one of a race of small, plump people about half the size of humans, with furry toes and a great love of good food and drink. Bilbo is quite content at Bag End, near the bustling hobbit village of Hobbiton, but one day his comfort is shattered by the arrival of the old wizard Gandalf, who persuades Bilbo to set out on an adventure with a group of thirteen militant dwarves. The dwarves are embarking on a great quest to reclaim their treasure from the marauding dragon Smaug, and Bilbo is to act as their "burglar." The dwarves are very skeptical about Gandalf's choice for a burglar, and Bilbo is terrified to leave his comfortable life to seek adventure. But Gandalf assures both Bilbo and the dwarves that there is more to the little hobbit than meets the eye. Shortly after the group sets out, three hungry trolls capture all of them except for Gandalf. Gandalf tricks the trolls into remaining outside when the sun comes up, and the sunlight turns the nocturnal trolls to stone. The group finds a great cache of weapons in the trolls' camp. Gandalf and the dwarf lord Thorin take magic swords, and Bilbo takes a small sword of his own. The group rests at the elfish stronghold of Rivendell, where they receive advice from the great elf lord Elrond, then sets out to cross the Misty Mountains. When they find shelter in a cave during a snowstorm, a group of goblins who live in the caverns beneath the mountain take them prisoner. Gandalf leads the dwarves to a passage out of the mountain, but they accidentally leave behind Bilbo. Wandering through the tunnels, Bilbo finds a strange golden ring lying on the ground. He takes the ring and puts it in his pocket. Soon he encounters Gollum, a hissing, whining creature who lives in a pool in the caverns and hunts fish and goblins. Gollum wants to eat Bilbo, and the two have a contest of riddles to determine Bilbo's fate. Bilbo wins by asking the dubious riddle, "What have I got in my pocket?" Gollum wants to eat Bilbo anyway, and he disappears to fetch his magic ring, which turns its wearer invisible. The ring, however, is the same one Bilbo has already found, and Bilbo uses it to escape from Gollum and flee the goblins. He finds a tunnel leading up out of the mountain and discovers that the dwarves and Gandalf have already escaped. Evil wolves known as Wargs pursue them, but Bilbo and his comrades are helped to safety by a group of great eagles and by Beorn, a creature who can change shape from a man into a bear. The company enters the dark forest of Mirkwood, and, making matters worse, Gandalf abandons them to see to some other urgent business. In the forest, the dwarves are caught in the webs of some giant spiders, and Bilbo must rescue them with his sword and magic ring. After slaying his first spider, Bilbo names his sword Sting. Shortly after escaping the spiders, the unlucky dwarves are captured by a group of wood elves who live near the river that runs through Mirkwood. Bilbo uses his ring to help the company escape and slips the dwarves away from the elves by hiding them inside barrels, which he then floats down the river. The dwarves arrive at Lake Town, a human settlement near the Lonely Mountain, under which the great dragon sleeps with Thorin's treasure. After sneaking into the mountain, Bilbo talks to the sly dragon Smaug, who unwittingly reveals that his armorlike scales have a weak spot near his heart. When Bilbo steals a golden cup from the dragon's hoard, Smaug is furious and flies out of the mountain to burn Lake Town in his rage. Bard, a heroic archer, has learned the secret about Smaug's weakness from a thrush, and he fires an arrow into the dragon's heart, killing him. Before Smaug dies, however, he burns Lake Town to the ground. The humans of Lake Town and the elves of Mirkwood march to the Lonely Mountain to seek a share of the treasure as compensation for their losses and aid, but Thorin greedily refuses, and the humans and elves besiege the mountain, trapping the dwarves and the hobbit inside. Bilbo sneaks out to join the humans in an attempt to bring peace. When Thorin learns what Bilbo has done, he is livid, but Gandalf suddenly reappears and saves Bilbo from the dwarf lord's wrath. At this moment, an army of goblins and Wargs marches on the mountain, and the humans, elves, and dwarves are forced to band together to defeat them. The goblins nearly win, but the arrival of Beorn and the eagles helps the good armies win the battle. After the battle, Bilbo and Gandalf return to Hobbiton, where Bilbo continues to live. He is no longer accepted by respectable hobbit society, but he does not care. Bilbo now prefers to talk to elves and wizards, and he is deeply content to be back among the familiar comforts of home after his grand and harrowing adventures.


What did the magic of the sword tell bilbo


This is a bit unclear as one could argue that Gandalf guessed that Bilbo had a magic ring almost the moment he heard the tale of Gollum after Bilbo escapes. We do not know when exactly he begins to suspect that the ring could be the ONE ring, but he finds out for certain in Fellowship of the Ring after testing it in fire.


Bilbo can see that he and the dwarves are about to be overwhelmed by the spiders and decides he has to disappear in front of them. After they get away the dwarves are bewildered by his turning invisible and must have the story of his escape from Gollum again. Balin in particular feels he is owed an explanation because Bilbo made him look bad earlier when he snuck past Balin on guard.


Gandalf the grey, or Gandalf Greyham, in the first age. (After the pruge of the ring, he was known as "Gandalf the White")


Spoiler alert. The hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, is recruited by the wizard Gandalf and about a dozen dwarves to accompany them on a mission to regain a mountain formerly inhabited and mined by dwarves, that has been taken over by the dragon Smaug. On the way, Bilbo accidentally enters the cave of Gollum (who is also a hobbit but who has been very much altered by evil magic) and picks up The Ring when dropped by Gollum. Bilbo is, at this point, under the impression that it is just a magic invisibility ring. He does not discover until much later that it is actually Sauron's master ring. The band of adventurers runs into trolls, orcs, and goblins, has fights will all of these and is eventually rescued by giant eagles, but by the end of the movie has not yet reached their destination, the mountain.


There is this band of Dwarfs who's treasure has been stolen by a dragon called Smaug and Gandalf the wizard drags Bilbo Baggins (a hobbit) into going with them to get the dwarf's treasure back with many adventures along the way.The Hobbit is a predecessor to the the well known Lord of the Rings trilogy.The story follows Bilbo Baggins, a rather plump hobbit, as he finds himself unwittingly drawn into an adventure by the wizard, Gandalf. Along with thirteen dwarves, he finds himself bound for Lonely Mountain, where a dragon named Smaug hordes stolen treasure. But the road is wrought with danger.A hobbit of the peaceful land of the Shire, is recruited by a wizard and 13 dwarves to help them retake their mountain Erebor from the clutches of an evil dragon. To journey there they face grave perils as they encounter Goblins and wolves and magic forest, giant spiders and elves. Using magic and quick thinking, with the help of giant eagles and man who can turn into a bear, they manage to complete their quest, only to realize that there are more important things in life.Gandalf tricks Bilbo into hosting a party for Thorin and his band of dwarves, who sing of reclaiming the Lonely Mountain and its vast treasure from the dragon Smaug. When the music ends, Gandalf unveils a map showing a secret door into the Mountain and proposes that the dumbfounded Bilbo serve as the expedition's "burglar". The dwarves ridicule the idea, but Bilbo, indignant, joins despite himself.The group travel into the wild, where Gandalf saves the company from trolls and leads them to Rivendell, where Elrond reveals more secrets from the map. Passing over the Misty Mountains, they are caught by goblins and driven deep underground. Although Gandalf rescues them, Bilbo gets separated from the others as they flee the goblins. Lost in the goblin tunnels, he stumbles across a mysterious ring and then encounters Gollum, who engages him in a game of riddles. As a reward for solving all riddles Gollum will show him the path out of the tunnels, but if Bilbo fails, his life will be forfeit. With the help of the ring, which confers invisibility, Bilbo escapes and rejoins the dwarves, improving his reputation with them. The goblins andWargs give chase but the company are saved by eagles before resting in the house of Beorn.The company enter the black forest of Mirkwood without Gandalf. In Mirkwood, Bilbo first saves the dwarves from giant spiders and then from the dungeons of the Wood-elves. Nearing the Lonely Mountain, the travellers are welcomed by the human inhabitants of Lake-town, who hope the dwarves will fulfil prophecies of Smaug's demise. The expedition travel to the Lonely Mountain and find the secret door; Bilbo scouts the dragon's lair, stealing a great cup and learning of a weakness in Smaug's armour. The enraged dragon, deducing that Lake-town has aided the intruder, sets out to destroy the town. A noble thrush who overheard Bilbo's report of Smaug's vulnerability reports it to Bard, who slays the dragon.When the dwarves take possession of the mountain, Bilbo finds the Arkenstone, an heirloom of Thorin's dynasty, and steals it. The Wood-elves and Lake-men besiege the mountain and request compensation for their aid, reparations for Lake-town's destruction, and settlement of old claims on the treasure. Thorin refuses and, having summoned his kin from the mountains of the North, reinforces his position. Bilbo tries to ransom the Arkenstone to head off a war, but Thorin is intransigent. He banishes Bilbo, and battle seems inevitable.Gandalf reappears to warn all of an approaching army of goblins and Wargs. The dwarves, men, and elves band together, but only with the timely arrival of the eagles and Beorn do they win the climactic Battle of Five Armies. Thorin is fatally wounded and reconciles with Bilbo before he dies. Bilbo accepts only a small portion of his share of the treasure, having no want or need for more, but still returns home a very wealthy hobbit.


When do you mean? He was lost, and far from them, when they were caught by spiders, and he was unconscious due to Elf-magic, but wearing the Ring, when the Elves nabbed them.


Because the ring is turning him selfish, making himself think that they might take it away if he tellls them about it. He wants to keep the ring all to himself.


It occurs on several occasions. In the mountain being chased by the goblins, he falls and is knocked out and the goblins overlook him. In Mirkwood, the spiders capture them and Bilbo has to rescue them. Again, the Elves capture the party and Bilbo escapes, partially due to his small size and his magic ring.


In Middle Earth. His name is Gandalf.


Of course!! Bilbo "wondered whether he ought not, now he had the magic ring, to go back into the horrible, horrible, tunnels and look for his friends. He had just made up his mind that it was his duty, that he must turn back-and very miserable he felt about it, when he heard voices."


He was the first one to step out into the open, into the elves' light, and so the magic hit him hardest, and he fell dazed to the ground. The wood elves carried him off with them when they ran away, but the other dwarves and Bilbo were left behind.


Besides the chapter where the dwarves are captured by the Goblins.


In the movie, Gandalf and Saruman engaged in a battle of will and magic, in which Saruman cast down Gandalf and sent him hurtling to the roof of Orthanc. In the book, no such conflict occured. Saruman's guards merely placed Gandalf on the tower.


In the 3rd Chapter of The Hobbit 'A Short Rest', Gandalf and Thorin show their swords to Elrond at Rivendell. He tells them they were made by the High Elves of the West. In Riddles in the Dark, Bilbo pulls out his sword and it glows in the dark. He thought it rather splendid to be wearing a sword that glowed the way Gandalf and Thorin's swords did. Bilbo's little sword, which he later gives the name 'Sting', is of the same design and has the same magic.


Gollum guesses that Bilbo has found his magic ring.


found it or stole it depending on whose story you believe.
