I'm surprised that no-one picked this up. Bilbo was NOT the only one to have given up the ring. Sam wore the ring for an extended time on the borders of Mordor, and gave it back to Frodo.

Boromir was correct in saying that Galadriel offered that which she did not have the power to give. All they had to do to get what they desired was . I think her reasons for doing this were to...

Interesting quote Phantom, and in this context it made me think of something (which is probably why you posted it). I'd be willing to bet that hardly anyone ever thought about Gandalfs age, so a...

Those examples escaped me. :o I stand corrected Boromir88, although I will append that only one can lead, the rest must follow, and Gandalf was the obvious choice to lead.

I don't favour the idea that Aragorn was a 'wizard's pupil'. TA2956 Aragorn met Gandalf and they became friends. Aragorn was 25 at the time, but had lived at Imladris for 18 years, and had been...

Granted.

If Sauron did not trust men, why was the lieutenant of Barad Dur a man who was deep in his plots? In the whole history of the Ring never once did a being already in the service of Sauron handle it. ...

I think the best way to identify a world fan would be to ask in what world they would rather have been born in: the real one or the "real" one. Myself? Edain in the First Age.:)

I don't think Gothmog was a Nazgul for two reasons: The Witch King wouldn't have tolerated a being with as much power as one of the other Nazgul in his place. Instead he would have had a lesser...

On Orodruin, the light of the phial of Galadriel went out after Gollum went over the edge. Would this not point to the power being lost immediately. Sauron's power was lost instantly, and the Elven...
