That'd be great! They would kind of really like to be able to do all the magic stuff Elves and Valar can do, if it wasn't obvious.

She had picked up on that. Would they like the vision blessing, as a step towards that goal?

They would love it!

Multiple boops!

And would she like to meet the King, he would be delighted to meet her.

In fact she would.

The King looks barely past middle-age. The books mentioned he's two hundred. His eyes are grey and flat and very sharp. "Ellayania. It has been a long time since this kingdom played hostess to gods."

"Since the founding, I understand," she agrees. "Which seems quite shockingly inattentive of them."

"They do not seem to gain anything from our attention, and it is unclear how much we gained from theirs. I take it where you are from gods have different incentives."

Permalink
"Indeed we do. To the benefit of our followers."

"So I have been told. I doubt the Valar would agree, but they are in fact inattentive enough it might not matter."

Permalink
"Their opinion should hardly be relevant, even if they cared to venture one."
Permalink

"They have on occasion been inspired to intervention outside their paradise."

Permalink
"With a five hundred year delay."

"Indeed. Are you confident that by then it would be irrelevant?"

"This body," she gestures at herself, "is only an avatar. My true form is the land of my domain, which I can mold as is fitting. Five hundred years would be more than long enough for me to spread deeply and widely here, such that I would indeed feel confident in ignoring them."

He nods. "What effects would that have on the land?"

Permalink
"Every god has a specific type of terrain associated with them, and their domain is necessarily of that sort. My own is wetlands, as might be gathered from my title."
Permalink

"This would be - fairly detrimental to agriculture. Is there a way around that -"

Permalink
"I can adjust soil quality as necessary. And the weather, as well."
