The baggins boys are Noblemen hobbits but such is the nature of hobbits and the requirements of adventure that they are by necessity and function both inspiring warlords and rogues. Tolkein purportedly intended Bilbo to be the feature character in LOTR but changed his mind and retired him. They would be roleplayed somewhat differently even so. The main 'mechanical' difference between the two is arguably the nature of the One ring and the burden they bore. It's evil was largely dormant during Bilbos stewardship, another thing all together during Frodos.
