    The books explain this.
    Magic was slowly leaving Arda and, like the Elves, Sauron was doomed to fade. He created the rings of power both as a last-ditch effort to preserve his power, and to dominate the other rings and thus races.
    This is why Lothlorien fades away after The War of the Rings; it was basically a time capsule of a second-age forest that Galadriel with her ring was maintaining.

        Also in the books, Elendil and Gil-Galad had basically killed Sauron and Isidur just finished him off and cut the ring off. He would have gotten the earring too.

        It’s explained in the first 2 minutes of the kino as well though. He made the rings to control the other races and his ring is the one that gives him the ability to control everyone. It also makes him stronger and shit.

          He couldn't control anyone though. The Elves were still completely against him. The Dwarves didn't do any of his bidding and just kept diggin their mines. And with the humans it just controlled nine withered old dudes who couldn't even handle catching hobbits or a single Elf. As a Lord of the Rings, Sauron was a complete failure.

        It began with the writing of the Great Tax Policies. 3% was taxed from the Elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. 7% from the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And 9, 9% was taxed from the race of men, who, above all else, desire power. But they were, all of them, deceived, for another tax policy was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged in secret a master tax policy, to control all others. And into this tax policy he poured his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One Tax Policy to rule them all.

        It's been a while since I read about it but the effect was something about binding his essence to Arda.
        Most magic artifacts would fade, but through the rings Sauron had bound himself to Arda so he wouldn't. This is part of why he had to put a suicidal amount of his power into it.
        "Morgoth's Ring" discusses how Arda itself serves this for Melkor, since at his peak he put so much of himself into corrupting it from its very inception.

      Evil cannot create, it can only corrupt or destroy.

      Orcs are perverted elves. Trolls are ruined Ents. Sauron didn't invent Rings or technology. He stole them from others.

    So the ring has its own little brain right? Well, it's reaallly stupid. Rather than corrupting Isildur into worshipping Sauron and turning his kingdom to evil, it instead gets him killed and itself lost for three thousand years where it can't do anything towards increasing Sauron's influence. All that time it could have caused war after war keeping middle earth weak and ripe for Sauron's return.

      >Rather than corrupting Isildur into worshipping Sauron
      That's not how it works.
      Sauron was the master of the ring. It endows one with the ability to dominate others, at the expense of increasing their ambitions to self-destructive levels and making them obsessed with the ring.
      Sauron was actually scared that Aragorn might be able to master it and overthrow him. Tolkien himself said that in such a scenario, Aragorn would have simply become the new dark lord.
      Basically it can't corrupt you into worshipping Sauron but it can turn you into a new Sauron. It was just a really inconvenient coincidence that Isildur got killed like he did.

      Eru was loading the dice against Sauron but I suspect was giving him a chance to repent.

      Isildur was taking the ring to Elrond because he knew he couldn't control it. The ring sensed this and summoned a nearby orc party to kill him. Smeagol taking the ring and hiding in a cave for a thousand years wasn't a part of the plan.

      This is just your head canon

      My head canon is that the ring has two purposes, one is to rule the other rings, the other is to preserve his power. My theory is that Sauron recognized that, every time his body was destroyed and he was forced to rekindle it, a portion of his power was consumed. Therefore, by transfering his power externally to the ring, should his body be destroyed again, the bulk of his power would be preserved. Sure, power that he still had inside himself would be lessed significantly, and it would take a lot longer to rekindle his form, but the total quantity of power consumed would be less, while it statistically would be the same. You understand? Like, if his full power is 100, and he died, it would take 10% of his power to make a new body, and his total pool of power is now 90 instead of 100. That's permanent. So, he transferred 90 of his 100 into the ring, leaving him with 10 points still within him. If he were then killed, it still only cost 10% to build a new body, so he's only lost 1 point. He then puts on the ring and regains the other 90, leaving him with 99 total, instead of the 90 he otherwise would have had.
