This could be interesting...Scotland seems like an eminently appropriate location for the likes of Eriador (at least, the lowlands do), perhaps we could get a different look and feel for this series afterall...

Welcome back, THA!  (isn't that some sort of illicit substance? scratch)

At the very least Petty will stop complaining about the color of the grass.

Well, the 'grass' in NZ is apparently too brown, at least in the case of Rohan. And thank you - I've never really left, I just don't post of forums much. But I think this will be a nice place to come as the series begins to ramp up.

{{ Hi Trans! cheers Scotland would be good for pretty much anything northern middle-earth. You can roughly draw a line from the southern tip of the Ered Luin right across the map to the tip of the Sea of Rhun, and anything north of that line you could get away with using Scotland and the fauna and especially the lighting and angle of lighting would be about right, or close enough to make no odds.

Once you go south it would be less of a match, and increasingly so. When you get to Rohan you are at the comparative latitude of southern Europe, and on flat plains and lush grass lands, and the lighting is noticeably different. And by time you reach Gondor and Lebannon you are in Italy and the lighting there is so different from northern Europe artists still travel there just to try to capture it. And of course fauna ect is quite different.

So it rather depends where they use Scotland for if it is suitable as a match up. }}

{{Not even if it's a braw bricht moonlicht nicht the nicht! Scotland is no more suitable for everywhere in ME than New Zealand is. But it could be good for some places, so long as they are in the northern part of the map.

Soon as you cross that line I spoke of your are into different shapes of the land created in different ways with different geology, the angle and quality of the light is different and the fauna is different (and of course therefore the grass colour!)

Of course one advantage if they film in Scotland is if its sounds like they are making a complete arse of itl ike PJ did I can go round in person and vent my crabbit to the source! Twisted Evil


 But are the Midges the right colour?- Figg

Hard to say, you dont notice individual midges as they come at you in mobile clouds of female aggression! (only the females bite, of course! Mad  The males just get to try to shag then starve to death and die content presumably in a job well done Nod )

Don't try this!!!







And every single one of those little bastards is biting you Mad They say in the old days they used to peg folk out naked for the midgies and by morning they would have been driven insane. I can quite believe it! pale Mad  So yeah the Midge-water marshes are well covered for filming them in Scotland- no cgi required. }}

Aren't Scotsmen renowned sprinters?

Very dangerous over short distances!


Mosquitoes are the same way, only the females suck your blood.

I love the idea of Scotland as a setting for places like the Trollshaws and similar parts of Eriador. I'm into it! Smile
