At moddb there is a fellow fan named TheToadSageJiraiya and said something reffering to Imladris ring heroe: <it would make more sense than to use elrond as a ring hero>
So, we all know that Lord Elrond always hated the One:
'All movie versions'
-The last alliance: -Isildur!!!! Destroy it!!!-
-The Hobbit: -He must be hunted down and destroyed once and for all- (he was not reffering to the One, but anyway ^^
-The Lord of the Rings: -You have only one choice. The Ring must be destroyed-
The lore is the lore, but we all want to see 'What if' situations, personally i love to see him as a new High King of the Noldor, but if we all follow the lore he would never ever take the ring for himself, nor even touch it.
So lets think, who are those characters that were in rivendel and desired the one?
*Galadriel? - But she is the main heroe of Lothlórien, so... NOT
*Saruman? - Its not The hobbit time, so theres no Saruman at Rivendell -also main heroe-, so... NOT
*Gandalf? - The same as before, so... NOT
*Cirdan? - a former ring bearer, so... NOT
*Lindir? - WTF!! really!!, of course NOT < Ha! nice joke man!! hahaha
So, theres no heroe suitable besides Lord Elrond, thats why he must stay! Here i write two alternatives to the ring mechanic:
Lets be honest, Rivendell is the only faction that wants to destroy the One, so why not take it to the fortress or the library or the forge & hide it -unitl the building is destroyed-
to the eyes of the enemy.
Or take it to the fortress & automatically appears a mini-horde named 'the fellowship of the ring' ^^ carrying the One & running away from the map (the same mechanic of the mordor or gondor allies but viceversa, instead of arriving, leaving the map), the thing is that mini-horde would not be formed of the heroes we all know, but of ordinary people: a hobbit, a ranger, a man, a dwarf & an elf. So every faction could be able to kill them, without any restriction to see Aragorn killing the Frodo for the ring ^^
That mini-horde would be visible for everyone, also not controllable for the imladris player & may run to the farthest corner to dissapear forever of that game ^^ But of course, it could be killed by a small armored army or several heroes.
At the end we will have a 'What if' Ring-Elrond & in the other hand, the following of the lore
Hope you like it!
