sauron was the first dark lord

LotR picspam (8/?)Shire! Baggins!

“This is the One Ring. Forged by the Dark Lord Sauron in the fires of Mount Doom. Taken by Isildur from the hand of Sauron himself.
Evil is stirring in Mordor. The Ring has awoken. Its heard its master’s call.
The spirit of Sauron endured. His life force is bound to the Ring and the Ring survived. Sauron has returned.  His orcs have multiplied.  His fortress at Barad-Dûr is rebuilt in the land of Mordor. Sauron needs only this Ring to cover all the lands of a second darkness. He is seeking it, seeking it.  All his thought is bent on it. The Ring yearns above all else to return to the hand of its master. They are one, the Ring and the Dark Lord. Frodo, he must never find it.

I looked everywhere for the creature Gollum but the enemy found him first. Admist the endless screams and inane babble they discerned two words.”

Comparing LotR and Star Wars
  • The first trilogy was really amazing, but the second trilogy relied a lot more on special effects and the tone was never really as solid as the first. 
  • Bad guy was seduced to the dark side by a more powerful villain
  • How does the magic…work…exactly?
  • Main hero born in a place no one’s really heard of
  • My hand/finger got cut off!
  • White haired sage sees the hero through the beginning of a journey, then dies, then sorta comes back
  • First trilogy is lacking in black people, which they try to make up for the second trilogy
