One inaccuracy here. You labeled the mountains surrounding Mordor as Mordor when Mordor is the land inside the mountains and not the mountains themselves

You're definitely right. I tried to cover that discrepancy in the instructions: "choose the best answer from the options given." The truth is, I just like how it looks when the mountains are highlighted. :)

You could make it into two separate answers by separating them into the Ephel Duath(Mountains of Shadow) and the Ered Lithui(Ash Mountains)

I made a similar quiz shortly before you did (https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/319978/middle-earth-map-quiz) but I'm not gonna whine about it, because your map does look pretty good

Me too

Also not whining, yours are nice and don't have something that looks like a penis, but if I had known someone else was willing to do it I probably wouldn't have made it.

Nice quiz. For the Francophones among us, here is my Middle Earth Map Quiz / Terre du Milieu - Carte Quiz.

Hope you'll like it!

I apologize for 'nerding it up,' here, but the place for Minas Tirith looks more like the place where Osgiliath would be. Since Osgiliath is not an option, it isn't really confusing for quiz takers, BUT as a Tolkien geek I had to say something!

Nice places. I enjoyed watching the waves crash in and out at the first place. It was very lovely.

Ah...! But when this quiz will finally get spotlighted? I feel like we are waiting it for years, without results. Each week, I'm happy to see that the quiz gained some noms, or sometimes got spotlighted, but then, I discover that it didn't gain any rank in the noms leaderboard because not enough quizzes are featured thanks to noms, and some other quiz pass this one. But I should keep hope, it should be pretty quick, now. Normally. I hope. Maybe.

Finally. Finally! FINALLY!!!

Congratualtions once again for this incredible quiz, dug. Without hesitation the one I waited the most for the feature. Thank you for having published it, and also thanks to 135 clever JetPunkers who have decided ti nominate this masterpiece.

Long life to Middle Earth, and long live to dug, our king.

Haha thanks! I'd have to say, though, I'm more of a hobbit than a king. :)

I knew Isengard... that's where they're taking the hobbits (to Isengard! to Isengard! they're taking the hobbits to Isengard!)

What a great quiz.

how come you didn't include Gondor, Rohan and Minas Morgul? I know there are even more places, but I feel like at least those should be added since they are kind of important haha.

I loved it. I only mixed up Edoras and Helms Deep. I thought surely Helms Deep wouldn't be CLOSER to Isengard...but i was wrong.
