Hall of Fire chat this weekend — did Frodo fail?
“I have come,” he said. “But I do not choose now to do what I came to do. I will not do this deed. The Ring is mine!” And suddenly, as he set it on his finger, he vanished from Sam’s sight.
It’s a key moment of Lord of the Rings where the quest teeters on a precipice. And this weekend we’ll be putting it under the microscope as we discuss the question: “Did Frodo Fail in His Quest?”.
Join us this Saturday June 4 from 6pm EDT in #thehalloffire on our chat server (irc.theonering.net) where we’ll attempt to find some sort of consensus over another one of Middle-earth’s most vexed questions!
