    The hope for saving Middle Earth continues THE FELLOWSHIP IS BROKENThere is some good in this world, and it s worth fighting for. So much for the fellowship made of representative of the races of good in the Middle Earth with the task of destroying The One Ring in the hellish fires of Mount Doom, located right inside of Sauron ...
