A WHAT IF FROM The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Some elements from the story are kept and others changed.

Silence falls over the forest of Parth Galen. The survivors witness the crumbling of the fellowship. The fall of Gandalf of the Grey their mightiest magician at the hands of a Balrog in the Mines of Moria, the demise of Boromir the Gondor their greatest swordsman by the arrows of Lurtz and the capture of hobbits Merry and Pippin was of no hope to those left standing Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas. Then a shimmer of hope as Frodo Baggins the ring-bearer emerges from the undergrowth along with Samwise Gamgee who stayed hidden from the attacking Uruk-hai. The remaining companions couldn't leave their friends to their fates so set out for their rescue.

Knowing that Merry and Pippin were in safe hands the remaining fellowship must take asylum at Edoras to avoid any pursuing enemies. Upon arrival they are greeted by frightened faces until their union with King Theoden of Rohan though he didn't seem his usual self.

Before the fellowship must continue their quest, they are interrupted by the desperate plea of distressed children with a dire message of doom. Edoras was far from a safe sanctuary, the kingdom needed to seek refuge at Helm's Deep. The quest to destroy the One-Ring need not be delayed however Gandalf insisted that only he would help the Rohirrim any way he could. The fellowship except Gandalf travel with Theoden and his men leading the people on a long and dangerous journey.

Upon arrival at Hornburg, the fellowship couldn't stay for long as the One-Ring still needed to be destroyed. Meanwhile at Isengard, Saruman the Wise has been informed by Wormtongue that Frodo the ring-bearer is amongst the fellowship and heading East away from Rohan. Knowing that they will soon be beyond his reach, Saruman sends his army of 10,000 Uruk-hai to chase then down rather than march down on Theoden. High endurance and stamina ensured these stronger orcs will eventually run the companions over. If these Uruk-hai were to fail, Saruman prepared a bigger army of 100,000 uruk-hai if he is to clash with the Dark Lord Sauron's armies of Mordor in obtaining the One-Ring.

By nightfall Haldir and 200 Silvan Elves from Lothlorien had arrived to defend Hornburg. As the sun rises from the East, Gandalf, Eomer and 2,000 Rohirrim charge down the hill to the apparent siege of Helm's Deep. With no uruk-hai in sight, the Rohirrim were rather confused. Gandalf suspects the Uruk-hai are after Frodo and pleads for Theoden to halt their hunt. Theoden couldn't risk it and needed more men to confront the uruk-hai. Frodo, Sam, Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas finally reach Minas Tirith the capital city of Gondor where a disgruntled Denethor Steward of Gondor refuses to accommodate them for many reasons. Aragorn being the heir of Arathorn and the death of Boromir. In the far distance, the fires of Mordor blaze alight as Minas Morgul opens its gates to the first wave of orcs. Saruman also sends his 100,000 Uruk-hai army out after the fellowship. Moments later.

In the city of Osgiliath, the orcs overrun the defenders forcing Faramir and his men to retreat back to Minas Tirith. Seeing the dangers from afar Legolas warns the fellowship they can't stay for long. The warning beacons are lit without Denethor's consent but nonetheless the message was well received. The flares travel across the land over vast distances.

During this time Gandalf travels to Isengard on word that Saruman has been taken down, though his army already left. He is greeted by the familiar faces of Merry and Pippin who along with Treebeard open the way to a scattered wetland. Pippin also discovers the Palantiri of Orthanc but is told by Gandalf to hand it over to him. That night, they spend their sleep at Edoras where Pippin takes a peek at the Palantiri only to receive a vision. The following day Gandalf spies a flare atop a mountain and knows what is to come. Fearing that fellowship may be in grave danger especially the ring-bearer he pleads with Theoden for this assistance, After much discussion, the king of Rohan gathers his men during the days to come before the fight of their lives while Gandalf races to Gondor.

Faramir returns back to Minas Tirith after a brutal escape from the Nazgul only to see the sight of a disappointed father. Despite being sent back on a suicide mission to reclaim the lost Osgiliath, Aragorn persuades Faramir to finish what his brother had set out to do. Joining the fellowship, Faramir intends to avenge his brother in the only way he could, knowing the prosperity it will one day bring.

By the time the fellowship had left, Gandalf had arrived at The City of Kings. The armies of Mordor awaited him and the people of Gondor. An army of 100,000 consisting mainly of orcs as well as a minority of trolls and other beasts brought catapults, siege towers and the dreaded battering ram Grond. With no time to waste Gandalf immediately took command over Gondor's garrison though Denethor fought him for it. Gandalf makes short work of Denethor before taking charge of the extreme situation. The orcs begin launching severed enemy heads followed by the Gondorians' retaliation.

[Insert battle of Pelennor Fields]

The fellowship have sneaked to the south past the armies of Mordor, crossing the river into unknown territory. There were only two paths to take, Morannon the Black Gate of Mordor, Minas Morgul the lair of the Witch-King of Angmar or Cirith Ungol the pass of the spider. After much discussion, the pass of the spider became their option rather than face the hordes of Mordor. The army of Minas Morgul has emptied but the now least dangerous path was not to be underestimated. They begin their ascension but the mountain slope. Meanwhile Sauron's army has breached the walls of Minas Tirith and flooding the city like ants. While all hope seemed lost, the armies of Isengard had also reached Minas Tirith. Their goal of which was to bring Frodo and the One-Ring back to Saruman so he can master its power. The uruk-hai having been commanded to tear anything apart that stands in their way including other orcs. A huge battle ensued between Sauron's Mordor army and Saruman's Isengard army. Though the uruk-hai were bigger and stronger than regular orcs, Sauron's other allies the Haradrim and the Corsairs of Umbar soon joined the ranks. The battle was intense with both sides suffering majorly. Swords clashed, arrows fired, ballistas shot and so on until the remaining troops met their final obstacle.

Over the horizon stood the Rohirrim cavalry of 6,000 more strong, 1,000 Silvan Elves and 2 hobbits. The Mordor orcs and Isengard Uruk-hai were a mess to be picked off and cleaned up as a final charge enabled them to wipe out the remaining enemies. Dead bodies filled the battlefield the war was far from over. Gandalf sensed the fellowship were near their destination and needed to keep Sauron occupied. The last of the men of Rohan and Gondor along with elves marched on to the Black Gate for one final battle.

The fellowship has cleared the pass of the spider, defeating Shelob along the way. A dangerous trek into Mordor awaited them as they slowly began suffocating under its toxic air. Orcs that spied them were quickly slayed before others could be warned. The new alliance of Men and Elves stood outside the Black Gate drawing the remainder of Sauron's army from the lands. The path was easily cleared for fellowship as they made their way towards Mount Doom. The tower of Barad-dur where the Great Eye stood was ever soon watchful and focused directly at the enemy at hand. A battle took place but long enough for the companions to reach the foot of the volcano.

Suddenly from the skies landed the Witch-King of Angmar. The fellowship drew their weapons trembling in fear as the Nazgul and its hideous fell beast stomped the ground beneath them. Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas and Faramir would keep the Witch-King occupied while Sam carried a sick, tired, injured Frodo further up the volcano. Then from behind a huge boulder the hobbits passed, a creature emerged. Gollum!

[Insert scene of Gollum attacking the hobbits and the destruction of the One-Ring]

The fell beast was down but the Witch-King proved to be more than a match for Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas or Faramir. However with the destruction of the One-Ring the Witch-King along with all the other Nazgul and the tower of Barad-dur fall and dissipate into nothingness. The War of the Ring was finally won with the quest succeeded.

[End Credits]
