2 Stars Useless and yet Precious May 20, Year 2 of the 3rd Age
By Isildur Son of Elendil
So, I bought this ring because I knew the dark lord Sauron used to have one of these, so I really wanted to study it. As it turns out, it didn't really do much for me at all. I mean, it sat around in a vault while I took extensive notes. Seriously, the only cool thing about it was that it had writing on it that only appeared when you threw it in the fire. Well, that and it turned me invisible when we were being attacked by orcs, but they shot me anyway! So yeah, having this Ring only shortened my lifespan. At the same time, I've gotten kind of attached to it. Huh. Anyways. Only two stars since it didn't really work.

5 Stars Increases life span. October 16, Year 3021 of the 3rd Age
By Bilbo Baggins
This ring has been my constant companion for 131 years! I first bought it in order to escape from a mountain full of goblins, and as soon as I put it on - POP - I disappeared. Nobody could see me, and I was able to escape unharmed. It helped me again later on to converse with a dragon during my first burglary job. The best part is that it increases life span! As stated earlier, I lived for 131 years, which is longer than the Old Took himself. There are a couple side effects, which include: Mood swings, a thin and stretched feeling, and possessiveness. Also, if you ever lose the ring, you will start aging again very quickly. Other than these side effects, I highly recommend this ring as an effective means to achieve long life, and for all your invisibility needs.

1 Star Ultimate rip-off! October 21, Year 3021 of the 3rd Age
By Samwise Gamgee
Do not buy this product! I am going to regret my own purchase of it for the rest of my life. I bought this for my friend for his birthday, but after using it for a while, he started acting really weird. He started getting mad at me for random reasons, and even stopped being friends with me for a while. He was stabbed, tortured, strangled, and even had his finger bit off by a stalker - all these people were trying to take the ring from Frodo! I mean, seriously! If people are selling this, it shouldn't cause this many problems. Seriously! What were these people thinking?! In fact, I should probably sue! You know what, I think I'll do that. Lawyer!
A/N: Hope you all enjoyed! Please review - I'll really appreciate it!
