    @ the fool who said “think of gandalf as the emisarry to the gods”

    Sorry but in lotr there’s only one God, just like real life, since tolkien based it on religion, Gandalf represents jesus. He states in the movie “There’s only one lord of the rings and he does not share power”. In other words, there’s only one God.
