It appears as though Turbine is starting to build the storyline for the rest of this year towards their big Isengard expansion as a mysterious message came out today from the Shire as Bungo Grubb, renowned pipe-week farmer sent a desperate letter to Mayor Whitfoot of Michel Delving, Turbine has posted a copy of that letter over on their website.

Upon further investigation, not only is the field ruined but it appears like there’s something leaking out of this relic.  Rumor has it there are more relics spread throughout Middle-Earth, but where?  What does Sauron and/or Sarumon have in store for Middle-Earth?  Can you say needle in a hay-stack?
