...I now think that Frodo was not exactly that strong in willpower to resist it, but it is because the ring has very little to work with!
I heard from Erkenbrand that the ring does not exactly tempt the person but amplifies the person's desires, and now it leads me to understand why Frodo and Bilblio were able to resist the temptation so long. Hobbits, for the most part only wish to lead a good life and have no wishes to be a mighty warrior...and also with the characteristics of hobits that can be found in the forum of weekly Tolkien sessions I think...I now think that Frodo was not exactly that strong in willpower to resist it, but it is because the ring has very little to work with!
No, the last thing on Middle-earth that Sauron expects is for anyone to be dumb enough to throw The One Ring away. He expects it to now be taken to Minas Tirith where a champion will arise to contest him for dominance of power. Now that Palantir-gazing for Aragorn appears to no longer be viable, this is why he will hastily attack Gondor. He does not wish to allow this champion the time to rally all his forces behind him. :teacher:Hmmm....but now that the witch-king knows that Frodo has the ring, won't the whole of Mordor be on the look out of Frodo...In this way how will Frodo complete his quest?
