Apocalypse in G
Melkor was gone, yet he left seeds among the Children.
These grew up in time, spirits of division, mirror-lovers â€“ the vain and powerful.
They were indifferent to Arda, save to profit from it, so that oil seasickened Ulmo and ManwÃ«â€™s emphysemic wheeze worsened yearly. The Sickle dimmed.
Dark Yavanna walked the earth, the shepherd of her children turned warrior, encouraging the hubristic weeds, the inhospitable climes: who warped her children, would gain ruin!
Natureâ€™s vengeance does not discriminate â€“ in KementÃ¡riâ€™s wrath is cataclysm to destroy Melkorâ€™s children and their victims.
For such is war without hope or help â€“ always.
