Riddle Quest

The BBC offers an on-line Tolkien knock-off game.

Once again the powers of darkness have taken over Little Earth and their evil is spreading. Using all your courage you must guide Orly the Elf away from his village, across the mountains and into the lava kingdom to drink from the golden cup of life.

An homage to Tolkien is fine. An homage to Tolkien that turns the Ring, locus of all evil in Middle Earth, into "rings of peace" is missing the point. Or is it? BBC editorial policy is consistently pro-ringwraith these days.
