Immortality* I would probably have been a vanya in Aman. Because they spend time closest to the valar and never left the blessed realm except maybe to fight at the end of the First Age. That way I'd have immortality, bliss, but wouldn't have to run the world like the maiar(wizards) and valar.

yes, here's how the rings work. One- Controls all the other ones with the goal of making those who hold the other 19 your servants. Three- they hold back the passage of time, essentially making the abode of the dwellers immortal. Vilya: Elrond had this one, it preserved Rivendell. Narya: Gandalf had it, it kept his spirit going after thousands of years of wandering and defeats. Nenya: Galadriel had it and it kept Lorien wonderful. The seven- they amass gold for the dwarves. The nine: they amass political power for men. The thing is that they were all bound to the one. When the one was destroyed the rings lost their power. Therefore the nine died (end of ringwraiths) wherever the seven were their golden power was lost. And, sadly, the three lost all strength to keep alive such places as Lorien and Rivendell.
Germes: I think inviting new people to join us is a good idea.

Germes: I think Bee did something similar at some point in the past.

Germes: And even earlier, there was a plan to stick 667 flyers in copies of ASOUE in bookshops. At least one person did join us because of that.

Sherry Ann: Didn't someone get kicked out of / asked to leave a bookstore for putting 667 bookmarks in ASOUE books?

Stay-at-homet: Just updated my profile to express my hopes that everyone stays home and safe. I tried to give my avatar a mask, but it ended up looking more like Patrick from Spongebob in overalls.
