    Another great entry, really glad to see this series back. I remember, back when I was a kid playing the 2003 Hobbit videogame, longingly staring at the conical peak of the Lonely Mountain, visible in the gloomy purple nighttime skybox for the Lake-Town level. It gave me such a strange mix of wanderlust and trepidation, that few other experiences could quite capture (Morrowind being one that springs to mind). The way the mountain is personified really speaks to Tolkien’s intense focus on the natural landscapes in his stories.
