Abstract:

The Fellowship has been broken. Boromir is dead; Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee have gone to Mordor alone to destroy the One Ring; Merry and Pippin have been captured by the Uruk-hai; Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli have made friends of the Rohan, a race of humans that are in the path of the upcoming war, led by its aging king, Theoden. The two towers between Mordor and Isengard, Barad-dur and Orthanc, have united in their lust for destruction. The corrupt wizard Saruman and his slimy assistant, Grima Wormtongue, have created a grand Uruk-hai army bent on the destruction of Man. The rebellion against Sauron is building up, led by the wizard Gandalf the White. One of the Ring's original bearers, the creature Gollum has tracked Frodo and Sam down in search of his "precious", but is captured by the Hobbits and used to lead them to Mt. Doom. The War of the Ring begins.
