1. Surpassing All Rumour
Pharazôn surveyed his goal from Alcarondas; the pristine white shores of Eldamar seemed deathly still — unpeopled, though a sweet fragrance lingered.
The stark majesty of the brilliant snow-clad peak towering above verdant lands took his breath away. Not even Meneltarma could rival such splendour!
He wavered a moment, doubting Sauron's counsel... till he remembered the White Tree ablaze.
Am I not the chosen of Melkor? Do I not deserve the gift of immortality?
Commanding the trumpets to herald his coming, he strode ashore to claim his due.
For withholding what is rightfully mine, I will make the cursèd Valar weep!
