Sting is the magic short sword of the legendary city of Gondolin, made by the elves in the old days. Bilbo Baggins, Frodo's uncle and ring bearer original, found it in a troll's Lair in Rhûdaur. He carried with him when he originally purchased the Ring from Gollum and wielded it for most of your mission. Sting finally saved your life in your fight against the giant spiders of Mirkwood. On the blade and guard, the following runes are engraved in Tengwar Sindarin-language of the Grey Elves:
Maegnas NEA be dagnir in yngyl-im nín (= Sting is my name, I am the bane of spider).
The blade of the sword glows blue when Orcs, the violent foot soldiers of Sauron, approach.
60 years later, it's up to your nephew Frodo and the chosen Society launch the ring back to the fires of Mount Doom, where it was originally forged and destroy it once and for all. Bilbo gives your sword to Frodo to serve you in your arduous journey.
