DescriptionYou all know the poem describing the rings in Lord of the Rings right? I challenge you to take that poem and twist it's reference into something else besides the rings of power.

The poem for those that do not know it:
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie

Notes to help with the bunnies:
*Rings are not always made of metal, there are faerie-rings, circus rings, even rings-around-the-rosie. The only thing 'ring' indicates is a circular or cyclical pattern. That could refer to the slayer line...
*Only four of the items referenced in the poem are explicitly referred to as rings. The three elven rings and the One Ring.
*Reading the poem literally, the One Ring is given three separate functions: ruling, finding and bringing/binding. Assign one of the functions each to slayers, watchers and the First Evil. Bonus Points for the First Evil not being the ruler or binder
*Assume the races mentioned are not explicitly the specific race indicated. For example the elves do not have to be elves, they could be vampires, who are immortal, or supermodels, who are tall and fair.
