Lord of the Rings: War of the RIngs Expansion
From the land of Mordor¸ the dark lord Sauron seeks to conquer Middle Earth and its people. To be sure of domination¸ he lacks only the One Ring¸ the master ring¸ the artifact that forms the very foundation of his power¸ but cut from his hand long ago.By chance or fate¸ the small Hobbit Frodo Baggins from the peaceful Shire has come into possession of the master ring. Counseled by the Elves and the wizard Gandalf¸ Frodo has made a heroic decision. With his servant Samwise and seven other brave companions¸ Frodo will undertake a desperate journey into darkness. Secretly¸ by stealth and by hidden paths¸ this fellowship must travel the long leagues of Middle Earth and find their way into Mordor¸ into the very land of Sauron himself. Here¸ Frodo must seek the Mountain of Doom¸ and cast the ring into its fire¸ destroying the power of Sauron forever. Yet¸ as the Fellowship advances towards its fateful goal¸ its heroes will be needed to rouse the forces of the scattered nations of Middle Earth before they are overrun by the armies of shadow.Never suspecting a threat to the ring itself¸ Sauron fears above all that a mighty leader will emerge in the west with the power to wield the ring and threaten his dominion. Before such a threat can take shape¸ the lord of Mordor knows that he must strike fast and hard¸ quickly laying waste to all resistance.
