Middle Earth

Middle Earth is the world featured in JRR Tolkien's books, The Silmarillian, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. For a map of Middle Earth, see the links section and visit the Tolkien art site. There are a number of different maps there, ranging in quality and size. I rather like the War in Middle Earth map, though it is a 2MB download!

Middle Earth is an amazing and mysterious place, but it can also be extremely dangerous. There are dark airless forests and winding underground passages and caves. There are citadels and cities, villages and towns, strongholds and dungeons. There is an assortment of creatures, some evil and some good. There is also an evil presence to the East.
