Set hundreds of years earlier than The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy (often known as the Third Age), The Rings of Energy begins in a time of relative peace. Center-earth has endured the nice wars of the First Age, and its impression continues to be strongly felt by elves, dwarves and hobbits alike. This Second Age of Center-earth must be one the place they begin to rebuild, one which sees kingdoms rise to glory. However darkness is brewing that can see nice powers cast, unlikely heroes examined and those self same nice kingdoms fall to damage. And from the second episode one begins, there is only one title pointing in the direction of what lays forward – Sauron, the best villain to have ever circulate from Tolkien’s pen. The journey is unknown, however what it results in is well-known to even essentially the most informal Lord of the Rings followers – the forging of the rings.
