The One Ring – The One Ring is an awesome artifact of evil with a will of its own. The One Ring’s primary strengths are determined by the nature and strength of the wielder. Its normal practice is to enhance to the extreme the capacities of its current user. In such a fashion it would have made Samwise the greatest of all gardeners, Boromir an irresistible leader of men, etc. The following abilities are known powers of the Ring:

  • Invisibility 25D (by drawing the wearer deeply into the wraith world) Limitation: All those of the wraith world (e.g. the Nazgul) and brightly see the ring wearer) the wearer can also see things that are invisible.
  • Wearer receives Acute Senses (All)
  • The designated owner stops aging. However they slowly begin to change into a creature of darkness (e.g. Gollum) and eventually becoming a wraith. The rapidity of the change depends upon frequency of wearing, nature of the wearer and innate magical resistance.
  • Permits the wielder to control any item made with the ring’s help (e.g. the traps of Barad-Dur)
  • May not be destroyed by anything except the fires that created it.

Note for anyone who has mastered the Ring the following powers are available:

  • +18D to Arcane Lore
  • May control all other Rings of Power (e.g. those worn by the Nazgul)
  • Range for all magical effects tripled.
  • May exert awesome control over creatures of Darkness/Evil as they respect and fear the ring.
History: From TheOneRing.net

Frodo was the only son of Drogo Baggins and Primula Brandybuck. His parents both died in the year 2980, so his cousin Bilbo Baggins, the wealthy bachelor, adopted him. Upon Frodo’s coming of age, Bilbo parted from the Shire, and left nearly all of his worldly belongings, including Bag End, to Frodo. In 3018, Frodo traveled to Rivendell under the name Mr. Underhill to escape pursuit of Sauron’s forces. Along the way he received a near deadly blow from a Morgul knife dealt by a Nazgul.

In Rivendell, he volunteered to destroy the Ring in Mordor. 8 companions were chosen to accompany him on his quest. He had many heroic adventures with and without the Fellowship before he finally reached The Cracks of Doom, where at the moment of truth, he claimed the Ring for himself. Shortly thereafter Gollum, who during a fight for the Ring, bit off Frodo’s finger, and fell himself into the fire, overtook him. After the War of the Ring, Frodo was, for a while, mayor of Michel Delving but constantly feeling dejected and unfulfilled, sailed over the sea with Gandalf and Bilbo.
