Tolkien Gateway


"The genealogical trees at the end of the Red Book of Westmarch are a small book in themselves, and all but Hobbits would find them exceedingly dull. Hobbits delighted in such things, if they were accurate: they liked to have books filled with things that they already knew, set out fair and square with no contradictions."
Concerning Hobbits (which is also a way to describe a Tolkien geek)

I am a proud to be an encyclopedist of TG. I am mainly concerned with in-universe articles about the mythology, and less about real-life articles about Tolkien, adaptations and relevant literature.

The "mythological" section is more or less complete. I work mainly making corrections, improving and tidying random text, add images to articles that seem plain etc. Also I am undertaking a self-torturing project of comparing every entry of The Complete Guide to Middle-earth against relevant entries of TG. So far, the experience has been very rewarding and insightful for me, and in my humble opinion, this helped me improve, correct and enrich a lot of articles that needed it. I hope to finish before the next century.

Disclaimer: I am a very absent-minded and forgetful person, awkward and all thumbs; this means I am very prone to typing and syntax mistakes, most of which I can notice only after I saved my edits. I am used to saving my edits every few seconds and continue with additions and corrections. A new page created by me is complete not before my first 3 or 4 edits, and improvements follow now and then. I know this "pollutes" an article's history but believe me, I have tried and I can't do otherwise. Apologies and thanks for your understanding :D

[edit] The mysteries of Arda

This is a list of interestingly obscure topics

I am also trying to work on these:
