Welcome to The One Ring website. The One Ring is a true to experience Lord of the Rings server for minecraft. Because The One Ring is true to experience, it will include many famous landmarks of Middle-Earth such as the tower of Isengard, the town of Rohan, and the fortress of Helms Deep. These landmarks will all be created by a team of Lord of the Rings fans ready for an epic Lord of the Rings experience. There will generally 6 main races in middle earth. The first race in middle-earth is Men. Men in middle earth are separated into many different factions, such as Gondor or Rohan, although when the time comes to face the forces of evil, men will join together to truimph it. Men are one of the most common races in middle earth, and whilst being mosty greedy, they are good at heart and make good soldiers. The second race in middle-earth will be the Hobbits. Most Hobbits lived longer than Men, a race to which they were clearly related. The average lifespan of a Hobbit was 100 years, sometimes until they were 130 years old. The time at which a young Hobbit matured and was accepted as an adult was 33, compared to a Man's 18 years. Thus, a 50-year-old Hobbit would only be middle-aged. The third race in middle-earth will be the elves. Elves are generally very similiar to men, although one distinct feature of an elf is its long, pointy ears. Elves are a very peaceful race, although when the time for battle comes they can be great warriors. Although elves can fight well with swords, most elves generally use bows and arrows because of their good eyesight. The fourth race in middle-earth will be the Dwarves. Many Dwarves grow thick luxuriant beards in which they take great pride, and often fork or braid them and tuck them into their belts. They seem to have favoured simple durable clothing, coloured hoods and heavy cloaks for travelling, and belts of gold or silver. For battle they would have do elaborately crafted armour and helmets bearing masked symbols (after the manner of those used in forges for shielding the eyes) that were hideous to look upon. The fifth race (technically a collection of races, but simplified) in middle-earth will be the Orcs (Goblins, Trolls, Olog'hai, Uruk'hai). Orcs are ugly and filthy fanged humanoids. The largest can reach near-human height, but they are always shorter, and some are as small as Hobbits (since Frodo and Sam disguise themselves as such when they enter Mordor). In contrast, crossbreeds between Men and Orcs are called "man-high, but with goblin-faces.However, some Orcs are very broad, if not tall. Many Orcs have long arms, like monkeys or apes. Many of them also have crooked backs and legs. They have black blood, reminiscent of reanimated corpses. The orcs generally live in places such as Mordor or Isengard, as they are bred and held there by the forces of evil. The sixth and final race in middle-earth will be the special Nazgul's which are only playable by VIP players and special players such as builders/moderators. The Nazgûl, also known by many other names, were evil servants of Sauron in Middle-earth. They were said to be "his most terrible servants." They served Sauron throughout the Second and Third Age. The Nazgul are among the highest and deadliest servants of Sauron. The Nazgûl were once great Kings of Men, until Sauron gave them nine Rings of Power. These proved to be their undoing; they eventually became invisible to all save he who wore the One Ring. Only through black cloaks and hauberks of silver mail were they given form.
