Living in Glastonbury UK I can find several places that look like M.E. I remember when I first moved there with my parents from the states, the first thing I saw was Glastonbury Tor and it reminded me of Isengaurd.

I'm not usually a contest guy but this may be fun.

I wish they'd offer this for the US too. Sounds like a lot of fun.

@nycteris

Unfortunately you're not exactly spoiled for old castles and medieval ruins in the States.

For my own part, I think I'll just submit a map of Wales or something. Crossing the Severn into the country a few months ago last year, I was struck by just how much all the place names to a non-welsh speaker made it feel like I had just entered a fantasy kingdom.

Admittedly, the illusion was spoiled somewhat by driving along the motorway, but it was hard to see much of a difference between Lotro's many obscure names for places and the welsh equivalent - at least for someone who has probably played too many games and never tried to learn the language.

This is a great idea. I'm going to nip down to the Tatras this weekend and take some Forochel and Rohan screenshots. Uhh, photos.

Considering, LOTR generally is based from bits and pieces of eastern european mythology and folklore, this is an AWESOME idea.

Ah,very true. Though the portion of the states I live in bears a strong resemblance to the Shire in places.

The U.S. has so many contests that other countries can't participate in for legal reasons, I'm glad that those in Europe get such a fun contest.

If the movies are any indication, shouldn't we be looking in New Zealand?
