Sauron prepares to launch his first major assault upon Middle-earth. All the power of the Dark Lord is in motion.
There is no longer any doubt that the One Ring of Power has been found, long was it thought lost forever.
The vile wasted creature was brought before the very throne of the Dark Lord and forced to speak. For years he kept the Ring hidden deep within the Misty Mountains, with no knowledge of it’s true power. Fool!
The creature has been sent on it’s own errand… to find the Ring and bring it back to Mordor.
However, the Dark Lord has no intention of leaving this errand to such a traitorous creature. No… every spy that can be trusted, has been sent out to find this land with the uncouth name of Shire… and this creature named Baggins. All of Middle-earth will be scoured and searched.
Sauron’s mind is bent upon the finding of the Ring… with it, his power over Middle-earth would be complete, but he knows he cannot wait on it finding… he must soon begin his attack on the West… prehaps sooner then intended, but he knows now, that he must move quickly. Plans long prepared are nearly ripe… the first stroke must be leveled upon Osgiliath. The ruined city must be taken first, so that the true assault upon the strong-hold of Minas Tirith may be undertaken. The brigands and stewards of the weakened city will soon bow before the Dark Lord or he will lay waste to the last remnants of fallen Númenor.
The Lord of the Nazgûl will ride forth from Minas Morgul and take the bridge of Osgilith. He shall cross the river and seize the western ruins of the decaying city and the herald of Sauron will invoke his greatest weapon… terror.
Sauron considers the One Ring… he know it may well be taken by one who has the power to stand against Mordor… there are still a few left in Middle-earth with the strength to wield it. This is Sauron’s greatest fear… that there may be one who seizes the Ring and gathers a force strong enough to march upon Mordor. However, anyone who takes the Ring of Power for his own, will be weak in the beginning… and even if the Ring is taken by one strong enough to wield it, there is still time to break the power of the West before they can rise up against him.
All the power of the Dark Lord is in motion… the first stroke in the last war of Middle-earth is about to begin!
