2. Second Age - Evil
Age: Second Age - Númenor
All has transpired as I had hoped.
The pride of Man is not something to be taken lightly, or tossed aside. Nay, it is a gift to those who know how to manipulate it, to bend it to their will.
Foolish Men, believing their might was as great as those who helped in their creation. Even I have the sense not to oppose the Valar directly. But Men, in all their overconfident self-importance sought to do just that.
Blame me, do they? Did I man their ships? Did I send the wave?
Did they not wage war upon me first?
Title: Ash Nazg
Age: Second Age - Pre Last Alliance
PoV: First Person - Sauron
Other Characters: One Ring
I am beautiful.
I need no force. Those Firstborn star-worshippers see my fair façade and welcome my counsel; my lore; my knowledge. I gift to them secrets that only a Maia of Aulë would know and they drink up my teaching with unquenchable thirst. “Rings of Power,” they call their creation. An accurate description; but the power will be all mine.
I am cunning.
Little do they know of my true nature. I will dominate them as no one else has done before. Even my Master was not capable of this kind of supremacy.
Ash nazg… Know me. Fear me.
