Water was Númenor's birthplace: jewel of the sea, her five arms flung out like a star to let the waves caress them. From the bosom of the isle springs of sweet water flowed to quench her inhabitants' thirst and water their fields and orchards and vineyards in season. Winter rains might lash the island, but the sparkling drops and graceful rainbows of summer adorned her like the garments of a queen. Born from water, cradled within it, sustained by it -- it was only meet that the fair isle of Númenor should meet her final end beneath the great green waves.
