Her avatar is nearby. It reaches out to touch the tangle, stepping closer-
And then it disappears, along with the light.
Where she's from, new gods show up from time to time. Not often, mind you, but it happens.
These Valar seem somewhat useless. Why take five hundred years to intervene against the evil one, when they were able to end it so handily? And cursing the only people willing to actually do something? Tsk. Foolishness. She likes the Elves. That Fëanor, she would have liked to meet him.
And local culture? Government, modern history, et cetera?
Lots on that, too! After the war the Valar raised this island from the sea for the humans who'd helped them in the war, and Elros, heir of Beren and Lúthien and also of the other tribes of men through a long series of marriages that she'd have no hope of remembering if she weren't a god, and it's been an absolute monarchy under Elros's descendants ever since. They eventually started travelling east and found the humans there horribly uncivilized, and have devotedly set to civilizing them.
First she must at least establish a temple. Best to secure the local monarchy's permission. What's written about the current ruler, and protocol for getting an audience?
She goes back outside. Can anyone direct her to the capital and/or a means of transportation thereto?
