Some sort of Elvish... by KasperGustavsson Some sort of Elvish... by KasperGustavsson
June 8, 2010

Gandalf held it up. It looked to be made of pure and solid gold. 'Can you see any markings on
it?' he asked.

'No,' said Frodo. 'There are none. It is quite plain, and it never shows a scratch or sign of wear.'
'Well then, look!' To Frodo's astonishment and distress the wizard threw it suddenly into the
middle of a glowing corner of the fire. Frodo gave a cry and groped for the tongs; but Gandalf held
him back.

'Wait!' he said in a commanding voice, giving Frodo a quick look from under his bristling
brows.

No apparent change came over the ring. After a while Gandalf got up, closed the shutters
outside the window, and drew the curtains. The room became dark and silent, though the clack of
Sam's shears, now nearer to the windows, could still be heard faintly from the garden. For a
moment the wizard stood looking at the fire; then he stooped and removed the ring to the hearth
with the tongs, and at once picked it up. Frodo gasped.
It is quite cool,' said Gandalf. 'Take it!' Frodo received it on his shrinking palm: it seemed to
have become thicker and heavier than ever.

'Hold it up!' said Gandalf. 'And look closely!'
As Frodo did so, he now saw fine lines, finer than the finest pen-strokes, running along the ring,
outside and inside: lines of fire that seemed to form the letters of a flowing script. They shone
piercingly bright, and yet remote, as if out of a great depth.

'I cannot read the fiery letters,' said Frodo in a quavering voice.
'No,' said Gandalf, 'but I can. The letters are Elvish, of an ancient mode, but the language is that
of Mordor, which I will not utter here. But this in the Common Tongue is what is said, close
enough:

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

My first picture with my new macro lens : Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM. I hope you like it!

The text was from "The Fellowship of the Ring" by J.R.R Tolkien. Chapter 2; The Shadow of the Past.

If you wonder where I got the Ring it was something I got when I bought the limited edition of Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria.

that ring is much nicer than the ring I bought. And the limited edition of Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria just cost a little more than the ring I bought.... i think Ill maybe buy the game just to get the ring.
