Rules exist to enforce safety and order in life. Without them, chaos would most certainly ensue. Therefore, it has been decided that in order to ensure the safety of everyone a series of rules have been established to prevent the Company of Thorin Oakenshield from wreaking havoc in Middle Earth. These rules have been compiled to form the Official Rule Book. It is required that the company read and follow these rules; there will be no exceptions and all those guilty of shirking the law will be severely punished.

Gandalf, you are included in this generalization. You are technically a part of the company, so therefore you will follow the rules. Especially the ones that apply directly to you.
