Hello, Viners.

I am already running one tournament now, but I still have time to make another one. These two franchises, the Fantasy Worlds filled with magic, creatures, humans (noooo way), and another stuff like that, will now fight on the field of popularity.

So lets start with the things which are connected with the Novels name itself.

The One Ring vs The Iron Throne.

LotR.

Maybe if I ever see (or read) Game of Thrones I'll have a differing opinion. The Game of Thrones comics that I've read were pretty good though.

@rogueshadow: It is supposed to contain both. For LotR books and movies and for GoT TV series and books.

Edit: Oh sorry, my foolishness. ITs ASOIAF yea but ppl knows it mostly as GoT.

Iron Throne.

The ring is cool and have magic powers.

But the Throne is the image of real power.

The One Ring is the better item because it's not just an item. It's a character in itself. It never speaks and never does much, but it's presence is there from beginning to end. Working it's way into Frodo's heart and twisting him. Torturing him until he was nothing but a shell of the man he once was. Then, at the very end, it turned him just has it had turned Gollum. The Iron Throne is just a seat for a king. A symbol of power. The One Ring IS power. A dark, corrupting power that seeps into every fiber of your being until one can scarcely say which is the bearer and which is the ornament.

Also an amusing thought. Both of these items ended up getting Sean Bean killed, if you think about it.

I have only read the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books. I've never read any of the GoT books so I can't speak to that. As far as what's on film TLOtR takes it easily.

Anduril, I would probably choose Dawn over Anduril though, or the original Ice.

But we don't know almost anything about this two.

Dawn is the sword wielded by all the greatest Knights of House Daynethroughout history, [one of my favourite Houses] like the legendary Arthur Dayne, it's pure white and pale like milkglass, was forged from the heart of a fallen star [meteor], plus I'm all but sure that it is going to be Lightbringer, which will set aflame when wielded by Azor Ahai and can slay Others.

Even if it's not, the factual information makes it incredibly badass, more so than Anduril for me, though it could set ablaze and that's pretty badass.

The original Ice was probably made of a similar material, since the Daynes are descendants of the First Men. Plus, even if it wasn't made of the same material, it's the ancestral sword of my favourite House, so yeah.

It is said to be forged from the heart of a fallen star, so its not factual information, and I doubt it's the Lightbringer and that is fanmade theory anyways, there's not enough information about it or the original Ice.
