himself invited, along with Meriadoc Brandybuck, but made a few very
crucial mistakes along the road. First he tossed a stone into a never
ending well in Moria, inviting a pack of Goblins to their resting area.
His other goof was looking into the Palantír (which he knew was
forbidden, but was lured to it anyways). But whether a fool or no,
