The Rangers and the Shire
Hey all. I was finishing up the "In Their Absence" quest line, and this popped in my head. The quest chain title refers to the absence of the Rangers after they move South to meet Aragorn, and all the troubles begin in the Shire, which succumbs to evil once they are no longer protecting the bounds. My question is this: Why exactly do they protect the Shire? I understand that they could be seen as protecting all of the lands, but it seems like special mention is made of the Shire, and especially so that they keep watch while generally not making themselves known. Why? What makes it special?
