  • Hey there! I am a big fan of the Hobbit-Lifestyle overall and I've been trying to most if not all the hobbit pipes in the game for my little Inn I'm working on. But its been a pain in the butt to first find a farm that growspipeweed (Okay, that was just a small search) and to gather the pipes together, I've been seraching for Hobbit-Inns and Houses with Pipes for hours now and I can't seem to find any that sell or have pipes. I only found the basic white smoke pipe once so far and thats how I came up with the idea of making pipes craftable, because it would make (hobbit-) life so much easier.

    I came up with a really basic crafting concept for the hobbit crafting table, just three planks and a log for the basic pipe with white smoke.

    Ree






    And to get the other colours, put the pipe in a hobbit crafting table and put a piece of dye of the desired colour next to it. You could make it that if you out all colours around it, it'll give you the magic smoke but I'd be fine with having to find that one because its so special.

    Best regards and thank you for stopping by to read my little idea.

    • Solid idea. It's said somewhere that pipes were also made out of clay, so that could be a good alternate recipe.

      I agree, you could just add clay to the recipe, like underneath the log or the middle plank

    • I like the idea of craftable pipes (and clay ones for that matter), but I don't think the recipe in this suggestion works.

      An idea that I had for a recipe was a stick crafted with a bowl. Simple, doesn't require much, and makes sense.

      Yeah that could also work, my recipe was just a proof of concept :D

    • No, pipes are magical ancient technology that can never be replicated, that is why they can't be crafted, all Hobbit pipes are passed down from generation to generation since that time Hobbits first came from Valinor.

      Where did you get that from? I've looked on the Internet a bit and only found the origins of pipe-weed but not pipes them self. I also don't understand why it would be so difficult to carve a pipe out of wood and hollow it but easy to build wooden spoons, since they are carved out of wood too.

    • At least Hobbit slings are craftable, you may think slings are completely useless garbage weapon, that's what i thought too, untill i ran out of arrows in Mirkwood once, so with no feathers i made a sling(plenty of gravel for the stones), at which point i realized, slings are insanely OP, their damage may be laughable, but their DPS is insane, because they don't have to charge before firing, plus you get your ammo back.

    • And also, as it appears in the books, other creatures- AKA Not Hobbits- Smoke pipes.

      Only ones we know who did were Gandalf and Saruman, both of whom had some intimate dealings with Shire.

      What about Aragorn and Thorin?

    • And Dwarves seem to know what smoking is. It is also a thing the rangers of the north appeared to like.

      I am not sure if Thorin was ever known to smoke in the book, as for Aragorn and the Dunedain they do mention them secretly defending Shire for centuries, and there are hobbits in Bree, we know rangers frequent Bree so they could have picked up the habbit there.

    • Dwarves and Aragorn are referenced as smoking at a few points I believe, so perhaps changing hobbit-pipes to just "pipes" is a good idea.

      It is however specifically stated that smoking was Hobbit invention, all the other characters who practice it presumably picked up the habbit from Hobbits in one way or another, IDK how to explain Dwarves smoking pipes but other characters can be explained pretty easily for having contact with Hobbits in Shire and/or Bree.

      Yeah it's said they all learned it from the Hobbits, but it seems at least that many of the peoples in Eriador did use it.

    • And Durin's Folk learned of it, apparently, as well, most likely from the Blue Mountains, and Thorin and Thrain's influence there.
