The evil power contained in the ring sucked people in almost immediately and they are driven mad.
I thought about objects that hold power. While the Sauron’s ring was meant for evil, Gandalf’s staff is used for clearing spells and protection. The movies suggest the staff is what holds Gandalf’s power, yet the book implies that his power comes from within. He focuses his power through the staff as a form of concentration, which is very fun to watch.
Do you use objects either as a source of power or as a symbol for something?
