After scrolling through the extensive list of Traders, an idea struck me- Hobbit Adventurs.
Hobbit adventurers would only spawn in areas near to the Shire (I.E. Chetwood , Brieland, ETC), and areas that bilbo visited. (I.E. Rivendell). Adveturers would spawn at high frequency near the Shire, and very low frequency far away form the Shire. They would not spawn east of the misties.
Adventurers would sell the same item list as Hobbit Bartenders, and would purchase goods from the land that they were in- such as Lembas in Rivendell. Adventurers in areas close to the Shire would buy the same items as bartenders.
Hobbit Adventurers would have the combined speechbanks of hobbit children and bartenders, (minus phrases like "Welcome to the stumbling bard!"), and a few sentences like "You aren't one of those orcs, are you?!"
Hobbit Adventurers would be hobbits that grew up listening to that crazy hobbit Bilbo's stories and dreaming of Elves.
WHAT'S THE POINT?
Hobbit Adventurers would provide Hobbit items to players without having them travel back to the Shire.
