Those who cannot see, seek their sight. Powerful beings; men, orcs, elves and dwarfs alike, sought to overthrow the other. Blind were they that their lust for power entitles the dark lord Sauron to the gift of control. Seven rings were forged for them. Elves, dwarves, men, all former warriors now seduced by the harsh powers of the rings granted to them. But one ring stood above all else. One ring for no man, elf, dwarf or orc to bear. The one ring for the dark lord Sauron; The one ring to rule them all. Through centuries of war, this ring was lost by its bearer. Slain, the ring's power fell into the greedy hearts of men. They sought out to destroy it, finding only that it destroyed them. The ring had since then disappeared from the eyes of the world, in the very same caverns in which it were crafted: Mount Doom.
Centuries later in the merry, hobbit run town of the shire, the young hobbit Frodo Baggins comes into possession of the ring through his uncle, Bilbo Baggins. One night, he wore the ring, an act that would change the fate of middle earth as we knew it. He saw through his eyes what no man should ever see: The eye of Sauron. A wizard by the name of Gandalf the Grey,sought out the help and council of the elves. The council devised a fellowship, consisting of a ranger, and elf, a dwarf, a rider of Gondor, and four hobbits. Guiding their path would be Gandalf, the wisest of the quest. The quest for Mordor, and the fires of mount Doom where the ring would be destroyed once and for all. Along their travels, they come across a small village, one in which you reside. Your people have welcomed them and they invite the willing to join their quest. Will you join them in a quest to throw the veils of death over all evil? Or will you stay with your town, praying against the inevitable destruction to be brought forth by the known forces of Sauron?
