19190Re: Fellowship of the Ring Question
- Sep 1, 2009As I said earlier, The One ring has no GREAT effect when the same is not worn by sauron himself since one of the purpose of the the One ring is to control the other rings of power. You are correct in saying that the Elven rings derived their power from the One Ring or Sauron himself (I'm not sure which or who) that is why the three would lose their power once the One ring is destroyed.
