Where are you all from?????

Post#101 » Thu Jan 01, 1970 12:00 am

Arda was initially flat and it became a globe only after the downfall of Numenor, "the seas were bent" and from then on no normal traveller could reach Valinor - when he went west, he only finished by coming home from the east! But Valinor is still accessible for those who can follow "the straight road". The ship leaves then the sea and travarses Ilmen (outer space) "which no mortal flesh can endure". So Valinor is perhaps on another planet now...

I, for one, am glad New York is not Valinor because that would mean the Valar had really let themselves go...

This is pretty cool though. I would guess that everything west of the Brandywine broke off and became the British Isles. South Gondor and Mordor would drift west and then north to make up all or part of the Iberian Peninsula.

Hmmm... actually there are hundreds of ways you can look at the maps and divide middle earth into modern Europe. Clearly, the geography has changed substantially. I wonder if Tolkien had a definite idea of what would become what as the ages wore on...

New York can't be Valinor. Valinor is in another dimension, and only accessable using elvish magic.


Yeah, but it wasn't a bad joke...

Maybe Numenor. Both were the New Worlds in which men migrated to in great numbers, and returned on occasion to help out their old allies in times of need. Hopefully America will not share the same fate as Numenor, however.

Dol Guldur really fit well with such names as Tirgu Mures or Baia Mare, so you may be right! ;)
