"I will give you a name... and I shall call you Sting." - Bilbo Baggins

Sting was a shortsword made in Gondolin during the First Age of Arda. Bilbo found this sword in a troll-hoard during his quest to reclaim the homeland of the Dwarves of Dúrin. Later, he passed it onto his heir, Frodo Baggins.

First Age[]

Sting was made in Gondolin, meaning it'll glow blue when orcs or goblins are nearby. This by it could alert the wielder and others around it. It was lost during the fall of Gondolin, the same battle where Turgon fell and the other sword found in the troll hoard (Glamdring) was taken.

Giving the name[]

Bilbo found Sting in a troll-hoard, together with the 2 swords Glamdring and Orcrist. During the rescue of Thorin's Company from the giant Spiders of Mirkwood, he slew a Spider when he wore The One Ring. Thus meaning he could exactly hear what the Spider said. The spider screamed in agnoy "Sting.. Sting.. It stings.." and from that day, the shortsword is known as Sting.
