    Why did Jesus have to get resurrected and tell only his disciples and a few other people that he was the Messiah and had defeated death!

      thinking the same thing except for the "also indestructible" part, because I think forging it in mount doom was a necessary procedure for the ring to have that property.
      but just encasing it in a small cube of mithril or something would at lease mean frodo or whoever can't be tempted to put it on and attract the ring wraiths. The magic of the ring probably means it wouldn't stay in there forever but they don't need forever.

      He figured it was a certainty they'd try to use it against him, because that's what he'd do. The ring would then co-opt its user for him. He was too hubristic to consider they might try to destroy something that powerful instead of use it.

    If Isildur refused to destroy the ring, the orcs must have heard of this event. He also just rides around with it on his chest.
    So they ambush him, kill him as he flees into the river, and then they just don't bother to look for his body? They don't bother to search the river?

          The ring warps reality in subtle ways. The ambush may or may not have been orchestrated. Either way, Isildur was using invisibility to escape, when the ring slipped itself from his finger at a critical moment, leaving him exposed in a river to get picked off by arrows.

              I suppose it could inconvenience someone who wanted to put it on right then and there, but at the end of the day carrying the lump of metal with a ring at the centre just isn't very thematic.

        He considers it impossible that anyone would even consider trying to destroy the ring. It's just not an option in his worldview. With that in mind, there's just no point to guarding a volcano.

        There probably were guards there, but Mordor got emptied out to fight Aragon at the gates. His first and smaller army got beat, so to his mind he isn't taking any chances and pulls out all the stops to crush them.

            That's a simplification. He's a Maiar, essentially a demigod. Each Maiar is associated with, and takes on the characteristics of, a given Valar. Sauron took after Vala Aulë the Smith, and in time, his perfectionism in his art of creation was warped by Melkor. Melkor himself was arrogant enough to try to out-sing Eru (God) during the creation of the world, and he warped Sauron to reflect that. There's a direct quote from Tolkein referencing Sauron's pride as boundless.

            Besides, it's very obviously thematic.

    This thread is %90 capeshit fan retards who don't understand complex writing. Ring basically has it's own will and power to affect events in a subtle way, like a god.

    Ring would never let itself to be hidden forever or be destroyed in a stupid way. It affects minds around it. Only some hobbits are resistant because they don't care about power.

    Also there's no element of luck in middle earth, there are only magic/valar etc. affecting little things. Ring always somehow would prevail in a luck situation because it changes such events. Only a greater power can win a luck based event against the ring, hence Gollum's fall to lava was done by Eru.

    1. Use magic to get rid of it or teleport it to some very secret place
    Not possible. The ring is enchanted to make it's way back to it's master. Regardless, Sauron didn't need the ring to win. If they hadn't destroyed the ring when they did. Sauron was on the cusp of winning without it.
    2. Get the elves and dwarves to work together to find a way to destroy it in their workshop
    It was made specifically that it could only be unmade in the same place. There's no work around.
    3. Give it to Tom Bombadil
    They did. He didn't give a fuck and everybody who knew Tom also knew that he would never ever give a shit about it or help them.

      Nope, if Frodo and Sam died and the ring was captured he still would've made the Battle of the Morannona win for the west because he was a lazy author

        lol, gondor barley survived in the first battle, now they are supposed to defeat a new army? marching on the black gate was a desperate suicidal attempt to draw sauron's attention, they would never actually win that battle.

        He was so lazy that almost half of the length of Return of the King is an appendix giving detailed information about half the entire fucking fantasy world he created, including things like how you pronounce Elvish vowels

    Why didn't they just sail out and drop it into the sea? It was lost in a small river for thousands of years for gods sake.

    Couldn’t they just ship it to Valinor? Gandalf took one of the elvish rings with him there in the end.

      Sauron would still win. They needed to destroy the ring. Hiding it would lead to annihilation.

    So if Sauron + ring = defeat, then how did they beat him in the flashback at the start?

      Elves in 2nd age and especially numenorian men were giga chads, modern (3rd age) men are muttified and elves are weak

    Are you ignoring the Hobbit?

        It worked it's way back in to mortal hands, and he subsequently sent his guys to retrieve it. It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and Sauron had all the time he wanted.

          Why not throw it into their Mariana's Trench then? It would take thousands of years for the Middle Earth beings to have the technology to create a Challenger Deep to retrieve it.

            Time is irrelevant to Sauron. He's literally already waited thousands of years to recover and build his army.

            On top of all this, he didn't really need the ring. He'd get it eventually, but it wasn't necessary to take over the lands.

            Absolutely irrelevant. It's not "if" it's "when". If Sauron needed the ring, he'd sure as shit get it.

    >1. Use magic to get rid of it or teleport it to some very secret place
    The ring has its own will, and a "very secret place" won't stop that
    >2. Get the elves and dwarves to work together to find a way to destroy it in their workshop
    It wasn't their creation, they couldn't destroy it
    >3. Give it to Tom Bombadil
    He didn't care about the ring and would forget about it
    >4. Give it to a tiny peaceful Hobbit with no physical power or any experience, to ubereats deliver it to the enemys doorstep (succeeding only thanks to plot armour, not to mention that balrog could go in the lava and pick it up).
    Hobbits are small, unassuming, and sneaky. He was invited on Thorin's mission for a reason

    Obviously that's a bait, but it's a good and thoughtful bait, so here's the answer right from the books, tards:

    >Use magic to get rid of it or teleport it to some very secret place
    It would be found again. They actually discussed about just throwing it in the ocean. A temporary solution, that would work for what? A hundred years? Two? One thousand years? Evil will always come back, and would find it again. Temporary solutions are that, temporary.

    >Get the elves and dwarves to work together to find a way to destroy it in their workshop
    Can't. What exactly did you not understand when they said no artifices of elves, dwarves, men, or Maiar would break the ring?

    >Give it to Tom Bombadil
    He would just lose it again. Tom, by nature, give 0% fucks. If everyone asked him to guard the ring, he would do for approximately 2 hours, until he thought about fucking his banging hot Faery of a wife, and then he would throw it in the garbage bin. Do you know the amount of morons and evil that right now are searching through every garbage bins in western society?

    >Give it to a tiny peaceful Hobbit with no physical power or any experience, to ubereats deliver it to the enemys doorstep (succeeding only thanks to plot armour, not to mention that balrog could go in the lava and pick it up).
    Can't stealthily send an entire army into Mordor to destroy the ring. 10,000 people have something about being, you know, visible. A highly specialized team of the best elves, dwarves, and humans available possibly could. And the humility of the hobbits are a strength, here, Frodo is far less likely to be tempted.

    This is excellent bait, by the way. All answered in the books, and tailor made to make LoTR fans seeth. I like the style.

    The ring needed to be destroyed, it was what anchored Sauron to Middle Earth as an immortal being. If they just hid the ring away Sauron would have won.

    1) When have you seen teleportation spells in Tolkien's universe?
    2) You'd never even heard of the Dwarves or Dwarvish before Tolkien wrote them. What makes you think you know better than he does about Dwarven and Elven diplomatic relations? Also, didn't you watch the films? The council of Elrond scenes convey this matter quite well.
    3) What movie did you watch with Tom Bombadil?
    4) Why didn't OP make a thread about gay sex since he's such a gay?
