I agree that this is the strongest possibility. I really don't see Sauron fighting hand to hand in another battle. The eye on top of Barud Dur would be very difficult for the public to understand if...

I disagree I thought the ent draught was a good scene that should have been left in. Quickbeam as cool as he is would have been much harder to bring in seeing that he is so hasty compared to the...

I just thought I would add that most great structures (Orthanc included) were built by the men of Westerneese long ago. Orthanc, the Morannon, Minas Ithil(morgul), even Cirith Ungol, as well as many...

Also Elrond of Rivendell keep in mind that Sauron was a Maiar spirit who had not yet been destroyed so he wouldn't have ceased to exist even if the ring was not yet made. Maiar spirits bodies die but...

I thought it was done pretty good as a whole. If I were to criticize it I would say that too much of the upper levels were harmed. In the book it was primarily just the lower level and the second...

I agree with the Knight Denathor would have taken the ring and tried to use it and it would have corrupted him like it did his son Boromir. Denathor was proud and arrogant and would have thought he...

Ungoliant nearly overcame Melkor, if it wasn't for the help of the Balrogs she might have. She also consumed many of the great jewels of Feanors kindred as well as sucking out the life of the two...

I would have to disagree, Sauruman was ensnared by Sauron albeit indirectly but it was because of Sauron and his ring that he turned evil. without the ring sauron would have no real desire to be evil...

Many things to consider. I agree in the Silmarillion it says Eonwe was the most powerful maiar in battle. Wether or not he could overcome all of Saurons forces or not is a different matter. I also...

I never read Morgoth's ring but I think from what I know that the History of Middle Earth books are a bunch of ideas that Tolkien never fully developed. I don't think Sauron could return. He was a...

I'm not sure that the only way the ring could be destroyed was by accident There might have been some who had the power to destroy it. I don't believe Tolkien actually said that accidentaly was the...

I apologise for my sarcasim, I didn't literally mean that I was trying to make the point(although I did it poorly) that Tolkien needed a character to continue the line of men. I agree with most of...

Since Sauron was a Maiar spirit he could not cease to exist completely. He probably just faded or found his was to the everlasting darkness where Melkor was. He would never again be able to take...

Okay I just caught up on all the posts since yesterday and I guess it all comes down to exactly what you define as a spiritual connection. Yes I believe the ring corrupted Frodo to have more things...

I too am in agreement however I don't think that he did it to try and create some new powerful being. More likely he was simply once again trying to suck the beauty and light out of Eru's creation....

I think since Tolkien on only had two sons of Earendil and Elwing one of them had to choose mortality and the other elf kindred so Tolkien could continue with the continuity of his story. I don't...

I think your theory is interesting however if there is a fallacy. If you are going to say that it was taken from both Frodo and Sauron then the same must apply to Gollum and Isildur. Bilbo alone was...

I don't believe the choice of the kindreds passed down to the third generation. Elrond had a choice. Arwen did not have a choice to be mortal she had a choice to remain with the mortals. She was an...
