Will Whitfoot was the Mayor of Michel Delving at the time of the War of the Ring. He was said to be the fattest hobbit in the Westfarthing. On one occasion the roof of the Town Hole collapsed, covering Will in chalk and earning him the nickname 'Flourdumpling'.
Soon after Frodo Baggins left Bag End, Lotho Sackville-Baggins began buying properties in the Southfarthing. With the aid of Ruffians in the pay of Saruman, Lotho quickly took control of the Shire. When Will went to Bag End to protest, he was seized by the Ruffians and locked up. He spent nearly a year in imprisonment, until he was released after the Scouring of the Shire. He spent several months recovering, during which time Frodo Baggins acted as Deputy Mayor. At the Free Fair of TA 3020 (SR 1420), Will Whitfoot is re-elected as Mayor for another seven years. His successor in the post is Sam Gamgee.
Will Whitfoot carries no hand weapons, more used to holding ledgers and books than a sword, and counts as being unarmed. He may be given the following items at additional cost:
OPTIONS Resistance to Magic; Throwing Stones
. See main rulebook for details.
Fattest Hobbit in the Westfarthing. Will Whitfoot may not call or take part in any Heroic Marches.
The Mayor. Although Will Whitfoot is no warrior his years as mayor have taught him to read people and predict their motives. If the opponent calls a Heroic Action (except for Heroic March) within 6" Will Whitfoot he will automatically counter it and win (any might used by the opponent to call the action is lost) and any Hobbits within 6" of him can act.
