[super spoiler alert!] Since Aragorn reunited the two kingdoms, shouldn't Arnor also be a correct answer? Numenor is not part of Middle-Earth! Also, these should be alternative answers: Lothlorien - Laurelindorenan; Lorien Minas Tirith - Minas Anor Rivendell - Imladris Mirkwood - Eryn Lasgalen

Actually, Numenor is originally defined as"nearest of all mortal lands to the undying lands" making it part of the "mortal lands"/middle earth. Agreed on Arnor, especially as it was actually Aragorn's original kingdom, as he is the direct lineal heir of Elendil by his oldest sons(sorry if that is sexist, but that is how it was), who was the high king of both Arnor/Gondor, residing in Arnor-specifically Annuminas. Sorry, nerd moment.

Yes, Gondor can't be considered "Aragorn's kingdom". It should be Arnor, which is the kingdom of the Northern lineage Aragorn comes from, or The Reunited Kingdom of Arnor and Gondor, that is the name of actual realm he ruled.

I agree. The Dunedain rangers patrolled the northern regions of Eriador, located within the lost realm of Arnor. Once he was crowned, he was made king of both Gondor and Arnor, as the heir to Isildur and Elendil, the Faithful Numenorians.

Maybe accept Rivendale or Rivendall?

Gondor and Shire are both in Ethiopia... I've visited them before. and saw the Hobbit-sized bones of Lucy at the museum in Addis.

Well I think Tolkien was a rather intelligent linguist and wouldn't have made a mistake like this.

Kal, did you see the Ark of the Covenant while you were there? There were reports that it was stolen from a church in Aksum in 2014. Hmm...when did you say you were there?

I was there in 2010 I think. I visited Aksum and I saw the church that claimed to have the Ark. But nobody was allowed to look at it.

I think you should also accept "Lórien" for the Galadriel question, and "Imladris" for the Elrond one.

Okay, "Mirkwood" is definitely NOT the fortress Sauron used to live in. Mirkwood is the large forest (previously Greenwood) that his previous fortress is in, which is called "Dol Guldur"! And second, he's had many past fortresses, which include Meneltarma in Numenor. But Dol Guldur definitely should be the answer, not Mirkwood.

I like that Orthanc was accepted for Isengard, since the clue asks vaguely for Saruman's fortress. Isengard is the entire fortress and/or surrounding lands while Orthanc is the tower itself.

Couldn't the Blue Mountains work for the "Major mountain range running north-south" clue? Not as major, but still a North-South mountain range.
