A very comprehensive and explanatory summary of Sauron and his foul deeds in the lore of Middle-earth.

  • We are the... äh... THE KLATCHIAN FOREIGN LEGION

It was at the Survivor Series that the dark path of the Undertaker was born. It seems like an eternity ago that the demons of hell passed judgement on the mortal world and unleashed a creature of the night so powerful that the mention of it's very name sends shivers down to the spines of who oppose him
You look into the eyes of the Reaper and you'll see that your fate is sealed!

Zitat
Black heart, scathed, which liberty is meant to choke,
Barred by nasty peaks, chained and covered by smoke,
The Dark Lord elected it as his fell seat, raging the mountain of fire, vomiting fumes,
A desolate waste it was rendered, poisoned and marred, cursed realm where lie silent tombs.

Zitat
There was once a fair city, raised as a stone-made sentinel and blessed by the moon. A true guardian of the grand realm of Gondor, last remnant of a glorious lineage of great kings. Alas, the stronghold was set on fire and assaulted by the very foes it was supposed to keep at bay. Black legions swarmed through the gates and claimed possession of anything they managed to seize. But such sin was not the worst tragedy of the case, for a wicked sorcerer bewitched the mighty tower at the heart of the settlement and cast a wicked spell of tyranny. Thereafter, brightness was no more and the previous radiant nights turned into infinite days of desperation under the thick shadows of the near peaks. The agony and horror of its one-time joyful dwellers shall forever haunt the forlorn spoils of the fortress, while her twin-city lies on the slopes of the opposing mountains, ever-watchful and cautious...

A curiosity I found on the Web :) i'm sorry guys if there are some mistakes it's because I directly translated the post from Italian to English using Google (it is a bit long  [ugly]):

Zitat
In 410 d.C. Emperor Honorius sent a letter to the main cities of Britannia urging them to provide for their own survival. With this message, which has gone down in history as the "resurrection of Honorius", the emperor sanctioned the definitive Roman abandonment of Britain. Most of the citizens present in the region decided to stay on the island by strengthening their defenses. There was in fact no safe place to escape: ferocious hordes of barbarians already raged in Gaul, in Ispania and even in Italy. But for mysterious reasons the ancient Roman city of Calleva Atrebatum, located in the present county of Hampshire, was completely abandoned. Some scholars speculate that the main cause was the outbreak of the bubonic plague, which exterminated the population in a short time. Calleva Atrebatum became a ghost town, a heap of cursed ruins from which to turn off. Several legends of spirits that infested the site arose and for a long time nobody dared to settle there. But in 1785 a simple English peasant, wandering around the fields around the cursed city, found a rather unusual ring. This was in gold, much larger than a normal ring, and was engraved with the writing (in Latin) "Senicianus alive in the god". For about a century no more was known, until some archaeologists found a tablet in the surrounding area, bearing a bleak curse: "For the god Nodens. Silvianus lost a ring and donated half of his value to Nodens. Among those who bear the name of Senicianus no one is allowed health until he returns the ring to the temple of Nodens ".
It seems that the ring belonged to such a Silvianus, who saw him steal from Senicianus and then decided to hurl a curse on it, invoking the ancient Celtic god Nodens. The only way to break the anathema, for the thief Senicianus, would be to bring the ring back to the sacred temple of Nodens.

In 1929 the head of the team of archaeologists, Sir Mortimer Wheeler, communicated the outcome of his discovery to a friend, a certain J.R.R. Tolkien. In all likelihood the history of the Roman ring of Silvianus was the main source of inspiration for the famous opera "The Lord of the Rings".
