It began with the forging of the great Rings
Three were given to the Elves
Immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings
Seven to the Dwarf Lords
Great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls
Nine were given to the race of Men
Who, above all else, desire power
For within these rings was bound the strength
and the will to govern each race.
But they were, all of them, deceived;
for another ring was made.
In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom,
the Dark Lord Sauron forged, in secret, a master ring.
And into this ring he poured his cruelty, his malice
and his will to dominate all life.
One ring to rule them all.
Ve'dui, visitor in the smithy of the Lord of Eregion, Celebrimbor, sun of Curufin and grandson of the great Feanor. Feel free to look around, but do not touch. The things you find here are very valuable, such as the Rings of Power and the History of the Gwaith-i-Mirdain, their city Ost-in-Edhil and the War of the Last Alliance and ofcourse, Celebrimbor himself, who sought to make a work equal to the Silmarills his grandfather made.
