I think it would be great to have an opening event like Lux Invicta/other mods which gives a summary of new additions, known bugs and allows a tutorial type event chain for how mod features work that can be accessed in game, optionally of course, thoughts?

Not a tutorial exactly, it's just an event chain that fires at the very start on day 1 which if you choose the option for will tell you how things work, like e.g. How to colonise with our mechanics, How Gondorians are stronger fighters than Orcs, etc

I have implemented this using same system as Lux Invicta mod, it triggers for all characters on startup in any bookmark, minimap has also been changed here

The only problem is that the next events this leads to in Lux Invicta are done through a mysterious 'guide' character in a humorous tutorial, but I'm not sure which characters we could use for this. Tom Bombadil or Manwe I thought but Tom is a real playable count and Manwe probably wouldn't give advice to Sauron Rolling Eyes
Any ideas for a mysterious character who could be giving advice to a player AND be canon/lore accurate?

Eru Iluvatar. He could give Sauron advice but, in the end, even Sauron's evil is part of His Design xD

No, very easy Smile but I'm wondering why he's not in there already or if I've just missed him, only Nuku/Lon know the answer to that Wink

He's not in the characters files, but maybe can we use Manwë or even better, Eonwe instead? 
Or Aulë for the dwarves? ^^

Perhaps a character who is not Ainur, but who could plausibly be in anyone's court (although not actually in their court)?

Eonwe could be a good compromise, do you think you could work a little on Valar/Ainur/Maia portraits for next release, so they are a bit different from men?
