Frodo and Sam take Gollum prisoner and continue on to Mordor on the mission to destroy The One Ring.
Whilst their former companions Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Merry and Pippin make new allies in the Ents,
The Riders of Rohan and the Stewards of Gondor and launch an assault on Isengard. All the while a growing
Shadow falls upon Middle-earth as the Dark Lord's Army marches on to Gondor. The War of the Ring has begun.
Frodo continues whining about how much of a burden carrying a ring is while Samwise struggles on behind him carrying everything. Aragorn,
Legolas, and Gimli learn how to be friends, first through necessity, and then because they want to be. Merry and Pippin make friends with
tree-people and talk about smoking.
From the lowest dungeon to the highest peak I fought with the Balrog of Morgoth... Until at last I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin upon the
mountain side... Darkness took me, and I strayed out of thought and time... The stars wheeled overhead, and every day was as long as a life age of
the earth... But it was not the end. I felt life in me again. I've been sent back until my task is done.
