 Eye of Sauron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In The Lord of the Rings, the primary antagonist Sauron controls his minions from within the Dark Tower, Barad-dûr, and thus he is never physically seen by the main characters.
Sauron's Orcs use the sign of the Eye when they roam the Earth, because he does not "permit [his name] to be spelt or spoken" (according to Aragorn; a notable exception was the Mouth of Sauron).
Sauron's only physical presence is as a giant disembodied red eye, seen in the second and third movies as floating above Barad-dûr (or perhaps suspended by its twin parapets).

 The Sauron Strategies: Footsteps into Failure
Sauron, on the other hand, was apparently apprehended.
It is unlikely that Sauron "slept" in the sense that the Balrog seems to have curled up under a conveniently huge mountain and dreamed of past debaucheries for the next several thousand years.
More likely, Sauron retreated into far eastern Middle-earth and there he could have done anything, such as plant a garden or found a monastery to teach ancient Elves, Dwarves, and Men the Way of Peace.

 The Lord of the Rings Online TCG: The Sauron Culture
Accordingly, the Sauron culture has many and varied ways to stop the Fellowship in their journey; not only Orcs to carry the fight to the Fellowship, but spies and behind the scenes manipulation, represented by conditions and events, to make their journey harder even when few minions appear.
Sauron does not limit himself to manipulation and indirect weakening of the various Free Peoples cultures, however - he also has an army of Orcs at his command.
Even as Sauron plots to submerge the world in evil, using every tool he can subvert to his service, so does the Sauron culture of the LOTR TCG give the player many ways to stop the Fellowship and defeat Frodo.

 Looking inside the Sauron Project
Sauron has to be one of the most maligned bad guys in the history of modern story-telling.
If JRRT had brought Sauron directly into the story early in The Fellowship of the Ring, surrounded him with lightning bolts and clouds, had dark shadowy valkyries swooping out of the sky, dogs baying on the distant hills, armed men swooning from terror...people probably would have put the book down.
The first glimpse of Sauron comes in the fact that he is able to send dark messengers to the Shire to hunt for Baggins.

 Sideshow Collectibles.com - - Manufacturer of movie, film, television and proprietary collectibles, figures and toys.
The Sauron Statue is certainly one of the largest and most complicated pieces that Sideshow / Weta have ever done.
The Sauron statue required the skills of three of WETA's talented artists to complete it.
Every armor section for the sculpture proved difficult and in the end many were not just merely sculpted but created out of thin lead sheeting and then laser cut with fine detailing matching the original armor from the film.

Preliminary description of Sauron's armor from the FIDM exhibit.
From what I remember most plate leg/arm armor is articulated at the joints and but everything else is in big unbroken pieces.
Sauron's armor had numerous overlapping pieces on the legs and arms - so many that I sometimes got confused trying to sketch them all.

 Letters of Marque: Sauron: Offer and acceptance   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Alternately, it appears that Sauron is engaged in settlement negotiations with Dain over the trespass to chattels that Sauron has committed in confiscating the dwarven rings, as well as the conversion ongoing with the dwarven rings (the taint imbued in their forging), as well as the adverse possession of Moria.
Plaintiff Sauron ("Sauron") is a resident of the land of Mordor.
Sauron's personal claim to these so called 'dwarven' rings is compelling, as he had both a hand in forging them and distributing them in the first place.

 Funagain Games: Lord of the Rings: Sauron
The dark figure of a fl rider joins the eye of Sauron on the master board, racing towards the fellowship with the help of new cards that are the domain of the dark lord alone.
Sauron may play either a Sauron card, or a Nazgul card (if he has any face up at that time), or he may draw another Sauron card to his hand.
The strategy of Sauron is interesting as he 'eavesdrops' on the conversation of the hobbits trying to get a feel for which cards would devestate which players the most.

 The Barrow-Downs Discussion Forum - Gandalf vs. Sauron
As far as the rings are concerned, Sauron created the One, which was specifically designed to dominate and control the others, so I doubt Narya would have assisted Gandalf much against the Dark Lord.
But on the other hand Sauron was somewhat weakened without his ring, so Gandalf would have that advantage.
Sauron again as a Maia was more powerful then Gandalf (Olorin), there were a handful of Maia more powerful then Sauron, I will have to get it specifically who, but I do know there were 6-7 equal or greater Maia then Sauron,

 The Barrow-Downs
Few is known about how close the dwarves cam into contact with Sauron back then, but Durin III at least got one of the seven dwarven Rings of Power.
In the war of the Last Alliance, the dwarves of Moria were among the few Naugrim who fought, and they at least fought against Sauron.
The dwarves deserted Khaza-dûm after King Durin VI and his son Náin I were slain by the Balrog in 1981 TA, and in later years, Moria became a settlement for many of Sauron's minions.
