The Change of the World refers to the event in the Second Age when the whole form of Arda was changed from flat, as it had been for many millennia, to a sphere.

HistoryEdit

After Ar-Pharazôn broke the Ban of the Valar by sending an army to Aman to conquer the Valar and obtain immortality from them, the Valar laid down their guardianship of the world and called upon Eru Ilúvatar, who responded with this great cataclysm that forever changed the world.

Ar-Pharazôn's great fleet was sunk, and he and his soldiers were buried under mounds of falling earth, now imprisoned in the Caves of the Forgotten until the end of the world. The great island of Númenor itself was destroyed and fell beneath the waves of the tumultuous sea, becoming "Atalantë" (The Downfallen). The land of Aman and the island of Tol Eressëa were removed from the Circles of the World forever, and could be reached only by Elves sailing West out of Middle-earth, following the Straight Road.

The world from then on was round as the seas and the lands bent back upon themselves. Afterwards, the mariners of mankind who attempted to sail westwards found only the New Lands, and eventually made their way back to where they started. This set the stage for the dominion of Men that would begin in earnest after the War of the Ring.[1][2][3]
