Event Type: Artifacts
Age: 3rd Age - Ring War
Date: March 25, 3019
An event in the Destruction of the One Ring; see that entry for an overview:
Gollum... was fighting like a mad thing with an unseen foe....
The fires below awoke in anger, the red light blazed, and all the cavern was filled with a great glare and heat. Suddenly Sam saw Gollum's long hands draw upwards to his mouth; his white fangs gleamed, and then snapped as they bit. Frodo gave a cry, and there he was, fallen upon his knees at the chasm's edge. But Gollum, dancing like a mad thing, held aloft the ring, a finger still thrust within its circle.
