Sauron had their rings [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, it's said in this chapter that he had their rings. Whether he actually wore them or kept them in a box isn't clear to me.

The mechanism of ring enslavement is also unclear to me. By giving up their One Ring, the 3 hobbits who'd possessed it all slowly recovered, even Smeagol, though they'd never faded, and maybe the fading is the key. The Nazgul had faded away from the real world and were so enslaved to their rings that they obeyed them/Sauron even when they no longer wore them. Maybe it doesn't make too much sense to think of them as humans and more as ex-humans or intelligent zombies; all the rules change then.
