Or a Quadrology? [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
I'm really curious as to what exactly happened in The Last Alliance War. I'd love to see an account as detailed as The War of the Ring about it. I actually had an idea for a 2nd-Age trilogy:

1. War of the Elves and Sauron
2. Downfall of Numenor
3. The Last Alliance



The Downfall of Numenor could be split into two films. Again, the biggest challenge of such a film series (after acquiring the filmrights) is that many details have to be invented and little is known about most of the principle characters of these stories. However, these could all be fantastic fantasy epics.

1. The War of the Elves and Sauron. Sauron as Annatar and the forging of the Rings of Power. He is defeated by Gil-galad and the fleet of Tar-Minastir of Numenor.

2. Sauron - King of Men. Sauron reveals himself openly and claims rulership over a large portion of Middle-earth. Bestowing himself with the title "King of Men", Sauron rouses the anger and pride of the Kings of Numenor. Ar-Pharazon lands in Umbar with a vast force and captures Sauron, taking the Dark Lord to Numenor as his prisoner.

3. The Downfall of Numenor. As the prisoner of Numenor's king Ar-Pharazon, Sauron slowly poisons the minds of many Numenoreans, playing on their fear of death to make them jealous and envious of the Valar. The majority turn away from the Valar to become worshipers of Melkor. Sauron convinces Ar-Pharazon that the people of Numenor can become immortal by invading Aman. The Valar react to the fleet by calling upon Illuvatar who severs the physical connection of the Undying Lands to Aman, destroying Numenor in the process. Sauron's body is caught up in the castrophe and he cannot assume a pleasing form ever again.

4. The Last Alliance. The events leading up to and including the Last Alliance of Elves and Men, beginning with Sauron's return to Mordor following the destruction of Numenor. Besides Sauron, principle characters could include Gil-galad, Elendil, Isildur, Anarion, Elrond, Cirdan, Glorfindel, Oropher, Thranduil, Galadriel and Celeborn. Celebrian could appear in a supporting role; Legolas was likely not born until early in the Third Age and would not come into this tale. Perhaps the movie could open with Glorfindel's return to Middle-earth after having been reborn in Valinor; the events leading up to his arrival can be revealed to him in flashback.
