"Ho! Ho! to the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe.
Rain may fall and wind may blow,
But under a tall tree I will lie,
And let the clouds go sailing by."

I think he's a maiar/valar in retirement

To misunderstand Nietzsche: God is dead, Bombadil just retired.

He can't be Maiar, and as I recall the Valar are all accounted for. Yet no Maiar would've entered Arda before a Valar.

That was another possibility, that he's an echo of Eru on earth.

I personally don't mind him being unexplainable, I feel Tolkein just liked the character and wanted to shoehorn him into LOTR.

Yeah I think Tolkien has said something to the effect of 'not everything can be explained'. But it is always fun to theorize. I am currently re-reading 'the adventures of Tom Bombadil' but I am afraid there are no real clues in it. It is mostly a book to read to young kids. But maybe that is a clue on itself, maybe it is the personification of the power of childish innocence and the blissfulness of that power in a dark world.

Bombadil is a NS nation.

Resurrected from the Boneyard no less, I tried for Tom Bombadil but that ex-nation's population was over the limit to allow for resurrection. Soon as the Boneyard feature became available I nabbed the chance.

how'd ya know it's password?

One doesn't need to know its password. A resurrection from the Boneyard is not the same nation. It's creating a new nation of the same name.

page=boneyard

For example, if you search in the Boneyard for the nation name Lady Eowyn, before the current one which was founded more than 7 years ago, there was another nation of the same name, founded and ceased to exist over 16 years ago. I don't know who used the nation name briefly before. When creating the nation, it is new. No issues answered yet, minimum population, etc.

Another example, if you search in the Boneyard for the nation name Crickhollow, you find three previous nations. Whether they were previously used by three different people, or by one person who forgot their password, is not visible. (I think the former is more likely.) It also shows when the nation name will become available again, because the last nation again did not reach a population of 500 million.

Criteria: A nation name becomes available for re-use unless the former owner
is active
ceased to exist less than 5 years ago
accumulated a population of 500 million or more
founded an existing region
is mentioned in the history page of an existing region
authored or was the subject of a WA resolution, incl. historical ones
authored an issue
was a moderator or admin
was deleted by a mod
is marked by a game mod as blocked from being reused

With a bit of imagination and trying out options, creating a Tolkien themed nation name, new or resurrected, works out fine.
