You call the ring -help-? HAHAHAHAHAHA.
#85 to #82 - darthblam (07/31/2012) [-]
Yeah.. the Ring itself was the ******* problem...

In fact, a few times the Ring even attempted to hinder Frodo's journey. There was nothing helpful about it unless you were ******* Sauron.

That... hm... you just peaked my curiosity now... how would you... I mean he's just a flaming eye...

he used it to hide a couple times, but that's about it.

The ring is certainly not help. The thing almost killed the poor bastard several times and left him drained.
User avatar #275 to #50 - wolfmango (08/01/2012) [-]
if you read the hobbit you will see that the ring certainly does help him
User avatar #306 to #275 - Hreidmar ONLINE (08/01/2012) [-]
The Hobbit is a different story, a prequel. It does help Bilbo, yes, but even that comes at a cost. If you recall, at the beginning of Lord of the Rings, he is 'stretched thin and tired.' The ring preserved him, but it was sapping him of energy as well. It even caused him to lash out at Gandalf when he tried to persuade Bilbo to leave the ring.

The case in question was that of Frodo. And while it did convey certain benefits to Frodo, there was rarely a time when Frodo used the ring when it was a clear help. One of those might have been escaping Boromir after he was corrupted. Most of the other times (The Tavern in Bree, when he was with Faramir) it drained him and drew the attention of Sauron's servants.

actually he does die from it in the books

Who are you talking about here?

frodo, when he and gandalf sail for the elven land it's a metaphor for death, it was in tolkien's notes
User avatar #74 to #61 - Hreidmar ONLINE (07/31/2012) [-]
That's not from the Ring, though. I believe that was by choice. By that time, the quest was over.
User avatar #75 to #74 - herecomesjohnny (07/31/2012) [-]
he didn't kill himself, the ring left some sort of burn or something
User avatar #89 to #75 - demonchain ONLINE (07/31/2012) [-]
If I can remember correctly, the wound from the Murgol blade never truly healed. It was still trying to make him a wraith, so that would be the reason I believe.
User avatar #90 to #89 - herecomesjohnny (07/31/2012) [-]
the way i read it frodo was still haunted and departed kinda the way bilbo did
#187 to #90 - sacker (08/01/2012) [-]
Yeah, well the way you read it was wrong. Wasn't it?
User avatar #318 to #187 - herecomesjohnny (08/01/2012) [-]
how so?
User avatar #239 to #61 - sirdoctormario (08/01/2012) [-]
Close but the eleven lands actually are a connection to a land in Norse mythology that only elves could go to, but Aragorn's elven lover, Arwen, decided that Frodo had been through much more than she has so she gave Frodo her ticket.The Elvin lands make you immortal when you go to them, it's where the gods of the lord of the rings world supposedly live. What you said about the Elvin lands was pretty close however, i think you just were a little splotchy on the details.
User avatar #319 to #239 - herecomesjohnny (08/01/2012) [-]
tolkien himself says it's a metaphor for death, that's why samwise goes to join him at the end of his life. It's written in black and white in the third book.
User avatar #220 to #50 - funnyjunktitan (08/01/2012) [-]
also golem isn't looking for redemption. He wants the asshole who stole his ring to gibe it back
User avatar #222 to #220 - Hreidmar ONLINE (08/01/2012) [-]
Gollum is an interesting character... at first he really is just looking for the Ring, but after Frodo names him 'Smeagol' that seems to bring back the younger, better him. He does faithfully serve Frodo for a while, although he seems to be completely schizo. Though actually, the movie stressed his duality more than the books did. At any rate, Gollum wasn't entirely bad until the end, after he thought Frodo betrayed him to Faramir.

this was the magical help....not the ring
User avatar #243 to #230 - moshthun (08/01/2012) [-]
And the magical items they got in Lothlorien.

The ring was the magical help for Bilbo in the Hobbit.

Also +1 for pointing that out good sir.

That's just the Hero's Journey (also called the monomyth or hero's journey archetype)

This post is right. Epic of Gilgamesh (4000 years old), Ramayana (2500 years old), ODYSSEY (2300 years old), Greek, Scandinavian, Chinese myths ... they have traits of this.

Funny thing is this can be turned around the same way for Zuko. His uncle is his main guardian, he also doubles as the wise bearded mentor. Lets not forget Aang is also seeking redemption. He feels guilty for running away, and abandoning the world for 100 years. 2 great character plots in one series :P woot.

Frodo is 60 years old when he leaves the Shire. He's not a young male protagonist is most people's eyes.


Just saying.
User avatar #131 to #99 - serotonin (07/31/2012) [-]
he is 33 and by hobit standards he is just becoming ``man``
User avatar #134 to #131 - hotcheetoz (07/31/2012) [-]
That is when he becomes a man in Hobbit standards, but no when he leaves. In the beginning of the book he's turning 33 when Bilbo is turning 111. They have the same birthday. When Bilbo makes his grand exit at his party he leaves the ring to Frodo. Frodo then keeps the ring hidden for a number of years before he departs with Sam.
User avatar #145 to #131 - TheCodFather (07/31/2012) [-]
what lore have you been smoking boy?
you need to go back and have a read
User avatar #100 to #99 - blackrookfiend ONLINE (07/31/2012) [-]
I was under the impression that it mentions he celebrated his 34th Birthday at the beginning of the book.
User avatar #103 to #100 - hotcheetoz (07/31/2012) [-]
It's 33 and he keeps the ring hidden for a number of years. In the movie he leaves almost instantly, but in the books when Bilbo gives him the ring he doesn't leave until he's much older.

User avatar #105 to #103 - blackrookfiend ONLINE (07/31/2012) [-]
Aha. It's been a long while since I've read the Fellowship and I'm well overdue for another read. Even so, 'young protagonist' still doesn't apply to LotR, and I acknowledge that.
User avatar #106 to #105 - hotcheetoz (07/31/2012) [-]
Very much so. You should read them again. Very good books. I read them every year myself.

Thats still not young
#110 to #102 - chrisgelok (07/31/2012) [-]
for hobbits it still kinda is, most species in middle earth live a hell of a lot longer than humans, for example, i believe elves aren't considered adults until well after a hundred years of life
User avatar #130 to #110 - hotcheetoz (07/31/2012) [-]
Hobbits have the same life span as a human. The only reason Biblo lived so long was because of the Ring.



60 is still old in Hobbit years.
#173 to #130 - chrisgelok (08/01/2012) [-]
"Two Hobbits, Bilbo Baggins and the Old Took, are known to have lived to the age of 130 or beyond, although the race's average life expectancy is 100 years. Hobbits are considered to "come of age" on their 33rd birthday, so a 50-year-old Hobbit would be regarded as entering middle-age." Average human life expectancy is about 70-80, and it was much shorter in the middle ages.
#174 to #173 - chrisgelok (08/01/2012) [-]
You are correct in saying that frodo isn't a young adult, but neither is he a wrinkled old windbag.
#135 to #99 - anon (07/31/2012) [-]
Wasn't he 60 when he left the Council of Elrond?! Anyways, Lord of the Rings tumps all this **** !

Redemption? I'm pretty sure gollum just wanted the ******* ring back.
#274 to #250 - anon (08/01/2012) [-]
Initially he did, but he had a fairly long period where he wanted to become a better person

Smeagol so wanted redemption.
I could tell by the way he bit off Frodo's finger and stole the ring.

Batman.
Parents killed, lives with alfred.
liam neeson (dont know his name in movie.)
dosent need supernatural help he's the batman.
Joker, Bane.
Catwoman.
#43 - sniipersaurus (07/31/2012) [-]
Actually I would say the ring (in frodos case) is less of a "supernatural help", but more of a burden it really in no way helps him.
#46 to #43 - applescryatnight ONLINE (07/31/2012) [-]
he gets power when he wears it bro
#48 to #46 - sniipersaurus (07/31/2012) [-]
He turns invisible but then that means Sauron can see him which is kind of counter productive considering he is trying to get to Mt. Doom without being caught, and also when he puts it on in The Fellowship of the Ring he gets stabbed by the Ring Wraiths 'bro'
#51 to #48 - applescryatnight ONLINE (07/31/2012) [-]
yeah but it is supernatural, and it did help in the story, i mean, without it there probably wouldnt be a story.
#53 to #51 - sniipersaurus (07/31/2012) [-]
It helped the story not Frodo..
#330 to #53 - applescryatnight ONLINE (07/26/2014) [-]
well, they never really differentiated who or what it helped.

Replace the ring with Sting and/or the Light of Earendil if it pleases you better.
