I wonder what happened to Frodo...

Code:
t) the Phial of Galadriel <+3>
     Found under some rubble at 1450 feet (level 29).

     Cannot be harmed by fire.
     Radius 3 light.

     When activated, it lights up a radius-3 area, or the entire room if you
     are in one, inflicting 2d15 points of damage on any light-sensitive
     creatures within the radius every 11 to 20 turns.
     Your chance of success is 95.4%

Frodo got down to level 99 and beat Sauron, but since he hadn't maxed his DEX, The One Ring got stolen by a seriously out of depth Smeagol. After such a huge loss, he just went back to town and quit.

He did manage to kick some serious ass in town when back though - even took down Saruman and Wormtongue while he was at it

I'm the Voice of Sauron. The hobbit you call Frodo was a coward orphaned thieving hobbit that dropped everything, including his hopeless quest to destroy that which his rightfully ours. At the first sight of danger he delivered himself to my master hoping for his life to be spared. But my master does not suffer the living. And thus he passed to the realm of the dead where he will forever serve us.

The little meaningless trinket you found is of no interest to my master, hence it having been lost and never searched for. That which is His, is already in our possession. You should go back. There is nothing here for you and your cause is lost.

Shoo!

Yeah but since then, Frodo quit playing Vanilla and now he plays nothing but ValinorBand. Are there even any monsters in that variant?! Tch.

Still, I gotta say I'm impressed- Frodo beat Sauron after squelching all weapons and armor. Pretty impressive.

Still waiting for Nick to introduce lava. Then @ lucky enough to find The One can just throw it in and Sauron dies immediately.

Don't you need Sméagol to steal it from you and fall in the lava?

Nah, just need a new stat 'Will'

18 potions of Will, stacked to !200 and you're good.

Hahaha- I dunno, I kinda agree with Monkey-Face. I would bet the One can't be thrown.

So, maybe this is the wrong place, but: one of the few things I still like about the LOTR trilogy is the lack of any concept of "saving throw." If anything, those possessed of strong "will" - Elves and Maiar and the like - are in more danger from the Ring's influence.

There are only two people in the trilogy who wear the Ring and avoid its influence:
- Tom Bombadil, who is completely unaffected, because he's Tom Bombadil. It has no power over him, but then it doesn't give him any power either.
- Samwise Gamgee, who puts it on to rescue Frodo and then gives the Ring back to him.

I've heard Tolkien hated allegory, but I'd say this is allegory, and not bad allegory either.
