Ask About Middle Earth

Ask any question about Middle Earth - LotR, The Hobbit, Silmarillion, or any random question about the peoples and history of Middle Earth (movie or book 'verse). Seriously, all questions are welcome!

Also, don't forget to check the helpful links in the sidebar!

Here’s Part 10 of the Silmarillion Reader’s Guide (follow the link for parts 1-9.) It covers chapter 20 (“Of The Fifth Battle”), which is sort of the beginning of the end for the elves in Beleriand. It’s in a lot of ways a continuation of the events covered in this segment in particular, in case you haven’t already read it.

The artwork is by Ted Nasmith, and the maps are by Karen Wynn Fonstad (although the second one has some additions that I did myself.)
