Wow. Will she show them what it's like?

Permalink

What does establishing a base entail? Is it going to interfere with how the country is run or anything?

Permalink
Not necessarily, but claiming some or all of this island as her domain would mean it becomes essentially part of her body. This is the main reason why she wants to talk to the King.
Permalink

What if he disapproves?

Permalink
She'd still like to establish a small temple here, but in that case she would go to the mainland and talk to people there.
Permalink

That makes sense. The people on the mainland are terrible, they need someone looking out for them.

Permalink

Quite. She thinks she will expand out that way eventually in any case.
Permalink

Can she communicate instantly between parts of her domain?

Permalink
Yes. It is all her. Communications lag would make that a much fuzzier category.
Permalink

That'd be amazingly useful for corresponding with the colonies.

Permalink
Indeed it would. What sorts of messages usually get relayed?
Permalink

You can send them on ships, but they're not the most reliable and it takes months, is that what she means?

Permalink
More the contents than the medium.
Permalink

Oh, people have relatives in the colonies, they write about relative sorts of things. And business ventures. Lots of money to be made out there.

Permalink

Shipping exotic materials, spices, rubber, that sort of thing. One of the scholars has an interest in this and can list off the manifests she already read in the library.

Permalink
She can create many of those things herself, in slightly limited quantities. Or even transport them, if they are given as an offering. Though that would involve the owners acknowledging her claim on the items well enough that it counts.

Permalink

How long has she been - in existence, do her kinds of gods get born?

Permalink
They do not. She has been around for nearly two hundred years.
Permalink

Some of them have been around that long! The King's older than that. It's a weird thought. They were imagining she was like Elves. Elves have mostly been around forever.

Permalink
That's interesting. Humans on her world don't tend to live much past seventy or eighty.
Permalink

It's partially the gift of the Valar and partially the Elven blood.

Permalink
That would explain the difference.
Permalink

But they still die, and three hundred is still nothing compared to forever.
