This week on Main, Elarie has shared a photo which they think is just like Bilbo’s road. Is there somewhere near you that you think is just like a part of Middle-earth? Tell us about it here.

And in LOTR Movie W1tchK1inG wants to know if Tolkien made a mistake when he described the deaths of two of the Balrogs (Gothmog and Durins Bane), “Gothmog was killed by Ecthalion when he knocked him into the water. In both movie and the book Durin’s Bane falls into water in lowest dungeon with Gandalf while fighting him but “from the lowest dungeon to the highest peak” they still fought.” Do you have a theory about this? Share it here.

Whilst in Off Topic, Eruvandi has told us about finding one of the spawn of Ungoliant on their front porch. Have you ever encountered a large spider? Why not tell us here?

We’ll share more topics next week. We hope you’ll come and join in the conversations! Don’t forget,’s message boards have 10,991 registered Tolkien fans, just like you. Let your voice be heard!
