Geography

Alright, I'm confused.
I was just looking over a map of Middle Earth and of Beleriand,and I notice in Beleriand, the mountains of Ered Luin are in the very far east, but in Middle Earth, they're in the very far west. Was ALL of Beleriand swallowed up by Iluvatar?????? that part always confused me!

Iluvatar had nothing to do with it, but all of Beleriand except for the area of Ossiriand (called Lindon in the Third Age) was destroyed in the War of Wrath. The Blue Mountains to the east of Beleriand are the same Blue Mountains to the west of Eriador. If you get the chance to look at The Atlas of Middle-earth by Karen Wynn Fonstad (a generally accurate Tolkien scholar and cartographer) she stitches together the First and Third Age maps along the line of the Blue Mountains in order to give a single, larger map.

On a sor tof related point, if memory serves Ossiriand is one of the places the ent-wives may have gone- meaning sadly there is a good chance they all got drowned by the sea!! Seems a bit harsh mind and a bit upsetting for Yavanna yopu would think- wonder if she got annoyed at Eru for it.

I don't recall reading about that, though there were regular Ents in Ossiriand, or at least the forests south(west) of it. In one version of "The Ruin of Doriath" Beren's ambush of the Dwarves who had the Nauglamir was carried out with the help of Ents.

I have to agree. Razz I'm afraid I'm not quite as uninhibited a spammer as Odo is. Very Happy In any event, he's already got me passed when we factor in Wisey, Mirabella, and Bifo. Laughing

I really don't know what you're getting at. And btw it's very poor form bringing my family into this! Poor form indeed! I hope GB knows how you're behaving - and does something about it!

I'm beginning to think it was not a good idea that you began posting everywhere, GB. It's not just Viral now, it's a Pandemic!

Do nannies ever? Razz Because sometimes I think the forum needs one of those more than a moderator. Laughing

Wise Odo

Fear ye all the Nasty Nanny,
(Australian terms: No fanny!
Under her dress, indeed a Manny!)
Innocent? No, deeply canny!
Beware the tricksy Canny Nanny,
Her cold hands are quite clammy,
(Her real name is Hibertia Annie)
She'll treat you with poisonous Tansy,
(Did I mention she was a Pansy?)
Keep her away away from our Forum Clanny,
For Nanny McPhee is no nice nanny.

[And another word of caution if I canny -
Never try to rhyme a word like 'nanny'!]


Aristophanes: "The Trouble with Nannies." (In Ancient Greek it rhymes much better).

I think you are a bit hard on Nanny McPhee (and short of ideas!)

(I think Chris might need a Nanny. Did you see his picture perchance, Uncle Wisey? He's ever so cute!)
