What is written on the One Ring?
The One Ring inscription
ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul. Translated into English: One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
What did the one ring actually do?
Purpose. The One Ring was forged by the Dark Lord Sauron during the Second Age to gain dominion over the free peoples of Middle-earth. He then forged the One Ring in the fires of Mount Doom. Sauron intended it to be the most powerful of all Rings, able to rule and control those who wore the others.
Why is the one ring so powerful?
The Ring is so powerful because Sauron put a lot of his own power into it to make it, it contains a part of him. To add to that, the one ring has a will of its own and wants to return to Sauron. It tempts others to take it so the ring can corrupt them and use the wearer as a way to reunite with Sauron.
What does one ring to rule them all mean?
@DCShannon Well, in Lord of the Rings, it’s “one ring to rule them all“, not “one ring to work in tandem with the others”. The implication is that if you have the One Ring, you don’t need any of the others. –
Why can’t Gandalf touch the ring?
Gandalf can’t touch the One ring because it would corrupt him and he would become a terrifying wizard like Saruman. It’s the same reason Galadriel refused the One ring. The One ring can only be worn by Sauron. Anyone else who wields it would be under his control, even Gandalf the grey/ white.
Why can’t Sam carry the ring?

Why are hobbits immune to the ring?
The pull of the ring is not too great on the hobbits because it senses nothing remarkable or exceptional in them. The ring has a will of its own and will work itself towards evil anytime that it can. It takes a strong and stubborn mind to resist it. We see Boromir give in to the will of the ring and he’s only near it.

Why did the ring not corrupt Bilbo?
Sauron: had his finger sliced off. So Bilbo was corrupted to some degree; but Hobbits had an unusual strength, and so Bilbo was able to give up the ring when Gandalf pushed him to do it… which made Gandalf admire him all the more, because he knew that he himself could never have done that.
