Harlan Thompson's "LORD OF THE RINGS, VERSION 4.1" converted for Test of Time.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie
This scenario is based on J.R.R. Tolkien's great trilogy of the same name
(though this isn't officially associated with that or Microprose etc etc). I hope
(and I'm assuming) you've read the books before you play this! If you haven't, go
do so now! You could do worse- the trilogy has often won praise as the best literature
of the 20th century by critics and the general public.
This is not your ordinary scenario. For one thing, it is very complicated. For
another, it is very difficult. I've had people say it the most difficult they've
ever done, but many also have said its the most favorite they're ever done, so hang in
there. The point to this is that I would be very, very surprised if you won the first
time you played this. You may need to play it a few times, have a few false starts, to
"learn the ropes" before you have a fair chance of winning. You really need to READ THIS
FILE!!!, wordy and long and complicated though it is, or you won't stand a chance of
winning at all.
