A BIT OF TOLKIEN AND MIDDLE EARTH
I am astounded at how many websites are devoted to one aspect or another of Tolkien's fantasy world. Serious, funny, scholarly, role playing, games, art, writing, forums, sites devoted to the movie, it's all out there. Of course, some of us old folks can smugly remember when all we had were the magical books themselves. And they were enough.
But since we don't read anymore, check these out..
Council of Elrond -one of the best in a crowded field
Burping Troll - hang out in this Gondor inn, even has a balrog for a bartender..
Every language Tolkien invented!
And a closer look at the secret language of the dwarves..
Hear Tolkien read excerpts from 'The Lord of the Rings'
My Precious - smaller site, but nice..
Ice Cavern - nice art here
Some Middle Earth Humor
Not all who wander are lost.
