From the introduction:
A council where the fate of the world is at stake.
It is 24th of October, year 3018 of the Third Age. Sauron has gained enough strength to actively challenge the Free Peoples of Middle-Earth. The Ring of Power, the One Ring, once taken from his evil hand has been rediscovered and is trying desperately to get back to his master. If it does, it will be the end of all for men, dwarves, elves and hobbits.
