This oracle consists of three parts: the Ring, the map and the cards. Each section may be used independently, or in conjunction with each other. The Great Ring can be used as a pendulum, for specific "yes" or "no" questions. You can also use the ring to dowse, or cast it on the map: where it lands gives you the answer to your question. The map shows the realms of Middle Earth; the landscapes represent archetypal scenarios through which each of us pass at some point in our lives. The cards show the characters and scenes from the book. Spread the cards on the map and use the ring as a pendulum while you ask the Oracle your questions.
