VoK 258: The Silmarillion ReRead (Part 9) – Of the Third Age and the Rings of Power


One Ring

The Vassals of Kingsgrave conclude their Silmarillion re-read series with Part 9 in which we cover the final section of The Silmarillion, “Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age”.  Join Greg (claudiusthefool), Matt (Varley), Shane (Easttexasdirewolf) & lurker extraordinaire Amber (Amberrocks) as we cover thousands of years of history in 50 minutes.

We tackle the tough questions:
– Was Sauron truly redeemable?
– How much power did Sauron wield through the Rings of Power?
– What happens to all those beautiful ships that sail to Valinor on their one-way voyage?
– How long do you roll your “r”s when pronouncing Saurrrrrrron?
