    <DIV =WebWizRTE marginheight="1" marginwidth="1" leftmargin="1" topmargin="1">Gandalf was returned to life by the intervention of Eru. Tolkien tells us this In Letter # 156, and Gandalf intimates such an iintervening power in TT -The White Rider when he says he wandered out of space and time, implying a divine agency is involved -but not the Valar, who are in time and space.

    <DIV =WebWizRTE marginheight="1" marginwidth="1" leftmargin="1" topmargin="1">And in that same chapter Gandalf tells the Three Companions (Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas) that he is now Saruman as he should have been- and of course, Saruman, as head of the Order and the Council had worn white. Gandalf, we are again told in Letter # 156, initially naked on his return was ready to receive the white robes of the highest.

    He was sent back because he didn't finish his task. The Valar (kinda Gods) sent him.


    Currently developing a MMORPG called "Guilds". It will probably have some similarities with LotR and please PM me if you have any ideas, thanks!

    yanncore: Wasnt the Valar that sent him, it was Eru himself As halfir pointed out just above :)


  5. gandalf was brought back to life by eru because he didnt finish his task. Initially even I thought it was by the valar.
    Do not worry about what was and what will be. Instead enjoy what is right here and right now
