The Dark Herald then briefly summarizes the pharaoh’s ascension to the throne of Númenór, his takeover of Sauron, and Sauron’s further corruption of Ar-Pharazôn which led to Melchor’s private cult and eventual public cult of Melchor involving human sacrifice, Ar-the pharaohs leading the Númenór forces against Valinor , the final Illuvatar intercession that completely wiped out the Númenórean fleet and the massive tidal wave that devastated Númenór.

He specifically paraphrased Tolkien’s description of human sacrifice, which actually read, “Sauron’s power increases daily, and in that temple, with bloodshed and torment
It is a great evil that the people offered a sacrifice to Melchor to release them from death. They often chose their victims from among the faithful. However, it was not openly accused that they would not worship Melchor, the giver of freedom, but a plea against them was that they hated the king and rebelled against him, or that they had plotted against their relatives, and made up lies and poisons. These accusations were mostly false; But those were bitter days and hatred breeds hatred.”

The Dark Herald paraphrased this writing, “The entire cult of Morgoth was created by human sacrifice of loyal mortals with the goal of achieving immortality.”

Tolkien mentioned the idea of ​​achieving immortality when speaking extensively of the Númenóreans in a letter to Milton Waldman accompanying his Silmarlion.

He wrote: “They have become so in appearance, and even in powers of reason, they are hardly distinguishable from elves–but they remained mortal, though their reward three years, or more than three times. Their reward is their perdition–or the means of tempting them.”

Tolkien later wrote, “Partially foreseeing this, the gods placed a ban on the Númenóreans from the beginning: they should never sail to Eressëa, nor far west from the sight of their land. In all other directions they can go as they please. They must never set foot on the ‘Eternal’ lands.” ”, thereby becoming fascinated by immortality (within the world), which was contrary to their law, or the special torment or gift of the Elvatar (God), which their nature could not in fact bear . . . “

As written in the language Silmarlion“For a wind came down from the east and brought them up. They broke the ban of the Phalar, and they sailed in the forbidden seas, and they went up in war against the dead, to wrest from them eternal life within the circles of the world.”

Arkhaven Comics Publisher He then responded to this summary of Tolkien’s writing, “Amazing, isn’t it, that a great fantasy writer could predict the transcendent global technocrats of today in the 1940s? That is because their goals are no different than they were before the dawn of recorded human history: to be like God.”

In fact, Tolkien saw this evil because he also wrote Silmarlionsaid Sauron with many arguments gaining all that the Valar taught; and commanding men to think that in the world, in the East and even in the West, there are many seas and many lands to their victory, where fortune was immeasurable. Yet, if they had to At last they reach the end of those lands and seas, for the old darkness lies behind everything. And out of them is the world. For darkness alone is worship, and its Lord may make other worlds to be gifts to those who serve Him, so that the increase of their power finds no end.”

And he continued, “And the pharaoh said: Who is the Lord of darkness? Then Sauron spoke behind closed doors to the king, and lied, saying: ‘He whose name is not uttered now; for the Valar has deceived you about him, having put forward the name Eru, a ghost invented in the folly of their hearts, Seeking to bind men in servitude to themselves. For they are the revelation of this Eru, who speaks only what they will. But their master will be victorious yet, and will deliver you from this delusion. And his name is Melchor, Lord of all, Grantor of freedom, and He makes you stronger than them.
