Re: Stupid question about FA/SA/TA
I dont think its really that there is less magic available. Something disastrous happened when the Istari (Gandalfs race, something like angels or demigods) came to middle earth in their true full forms, which is why they now come only in avatar forms with limits on their powers like Gandalf the Grey, Rhadighast the Brown and Saruman the White. Seems the color denotes the level of limitation placed on the avatar. I believe the limitations are more self-imposed or ancient lore lost because it wasnt passed down, probably due to the many untimely deaths and abandonment of middle earth that marked the end of each age.
