If you could have one weapon or item...

Mithril Armor. I love the way that Frodo kept it a secret in the book and the light elveness of it.:cool:

I would choose the box Sam got from Galadriel, for it is the only item or weapon - if memory serves me well - that creates something instead of destroying something...

I still hold to the fact that my 'pen' is mightier than any sword. Well, I suppose in this day and age, my 'keyboard' is mightier than my light-sabre!

These two last ones are very, very good! Hmm... What can I say then? This looks like the thread about super-powers, more or less. After all, you've got a purpose for that weapon.
Probably I'll choose Sam's box, as Walter did. The pen/keyboard, concerning about the story, would change Tolkien words, and some scenes, or the end... (Don't get angry, Anc!)

If the one ring didn`t make you evil, just invisible.... I would have chosen THE ONE RING.

I would choose one of the Three Elven Rings, and learn how to use its power for the good of all.

Somewhere in a Tolkien story.
I guess I would want to be Narsil, or Glamdring or Guthwine or Anduril or......... wait a minute!!! I already am a weapon. I would definately want to be me!!! (12 feet of swinging steel!!)

All of you selecting Frodo's Mithril Coat must be unusually short!!!

I, too, would select Sam's box! I love growing things, life, and the joy that comes from a healthy, free and happy tree. :D

I'd really like a bow of Lothlorien (with arrows, duh! :rolleyes: ); I have only shot with a real longbow a few times, and having one of my own might help with my archery skills!
Anduril would also be really great; any sword from Numenor, actually.

*"Hey! I'm not short!" Tal says as she jumps up and down trying to see over all the tall Elven people.*

Another thing that would be good to have would be a set of Mithril arm-guards. No more string burns! hehehe, they wouldn't be very flexable though...

I would have the one ring, a packet of cheese and onion crisps and a length of rope.

Seriously, I always liked 'Sting'. I like the fact that it warns the wearer of oncoming ORCs.

On the tangible side, I would have to say The Phial of Galadriel - a light when all other lights have gone out (or words to that effect). It seems to me though that the most powerful weapons in tLOTR were faith and friendship.
