Ok, so i’ve been thinking a little and i decided to post this topic: If Middle-Earth was real, where would you live and what would you be? I still havnt got an answer for my-self yet. All though Gondor is my favorite place in Middle-Earth, i would not chose  there because it is closest to Mordor. So i would probably be a Dwarf from the Iron Hills for two reasons:1.It is very far from Mordor and 2.As Gimli said: Malt Beer, Meat right off the bone, you cant say no to that

Well, I’m surprised at you -    fancy a youth of Gondor not wanting to be in Minas Tirith! [I’m there for the lovely libraries].

As for beer [what other kind is there, apart from malt by the way?] and meat off the bone - there’s plenty of good grub in MT. And it’s nowhere near as dark and mucky as a pit!

And by the way - that quote: it’s from the movies!!! Mention it not!

And Welcome to the Plaza. [I’m off back to the libraries]

ps - by the way - how do you plan to guard the citadel with your life if you’re hundreds of miles away? Just wonderin’.

I’d live in Durin’s Tower as a guard for the re-inhabited glorious Moria. All that pretty, pretty white snow. Forgive me I live in a desert so it looks quite nice.

Dwarves can have dreams too

Welcome to the plaza Roxas

I’d live in Lorien, of course. Beautiful forest with beautiful inhabitants, and an amazing amount of serenity. Not to mention, Lothlorien was a very safe place, most times, and for someone who enjoys such activities as archery, the Golden Wood would have been absolutely heaven! Not surprising why I picked Lorien as my kingdom, eh?

I would be an Elf, there is no doubt about that. If the perameters of this proposed question allow it I would choose, perhaps precariously, to live during the First Age. Therein I would have to say that I would be a Noldorin Elf of the host of Feanor. If, however, we are required to consider the Third Age I would reside within Mithlond.

Interesting question, Roxas. lol. I’ve been reading through the BoLT and have found myself really wishing that all of Middle Earth WAS real! So this is the perfect question for me right now. If I had a choice, I would so live in Doriath, or my Turgon’s hidden city. Though both fell, they were beautiful while they lasted and held so much ’magic’ if you will that the two are my fav. places. (I wouldn’t mind living in Valinor either)

For me it would have to be somewhere that was in the centre of all activity but still quiet enough to lead a peaceful life.

If we’re talking about the Third Age, then Minas Tirith would be a grand place to live, but under the shadow of Mordor and the corruption of Denethor, an unstable place also.

I’d quite like to live in Bree, the Inn looks fantastic and it is centrally located on a crossroads.

Esgaroth would also be an interesting place to live, with the peace which followed the destruction of Smaug.

There are so many places I’d like to live, and so much can be left to the imagination, it’s fantastic just thinking about a parallel life in Middle Earth.

’scuse me, minion!      You can’t just walk into MT just like that, y’know. And who are you calling corrupt, O slave of the Red Eye?

I’m evil I would be from Rhun.  I don’t have to worry about Sauron because, I work for him.  It is the only large area on ME where man has overrun elves (take that ya pointy ears) and can dwarves craft their weapons.  The desert is tough but livable and as a human I would most likely have the most training when Gondor comes to conquer me (talkin about post LotR) then once that happened would go into Gondor army like most my people.

I would be a man. Nothing more. Nothing less. Wilderland would seem a suitable place for me. It is suitable for the raising of horses, and it would be in this that I would spend my days. It would be somewhat similar to Beorn, or perhaps with Bard concerning the language of a certain animal.

I’d live in Imladris...just like I do here on the Plaza.  I admit to being considerably "Elf-like" in RL sometimes, especially as far as love for nature goes.  Also, I believe Bilbo once said something along the lines of "The Elves seem to love poetry as much or more than food."  Definitely me!  I also imagined the landscape as being a particularly stunning one, one that I would enjoy.  But I think I would also travel a lot, as I enjoy doing that in RL as well.

If I was living in Middle-earth I couldn’t just stay in one place! It would be to cool! I would be a nomad. That way I could wander around and get the best of all worlds. Plus I wouldn’t have to work because I would get hospitality everywhere I go. Although I would probably stay away form Mrodor.

I’d shure live in Imladris ( good point Arvellas ) . That would be the best place to be, a beautiful and quiet place far away from the evil of Mordor and Sauron. The woods of Imladris and all the thing that are part of it made the valey the best place to live in.

I would come from either Valinor or Gondor simply because they seem such a great vareity in both places. Does Valinor count?If not I’ll just have to live in Gondor, protecting Middle-Earth from evil. But just as others said, I’d go around ME and explore all the good places there are.

 The Shire- very homey, no wars, very peaceful, lots of meadows and forest plus streams


 Rivendell- quiet, peaceful, they have feasts and story telling and singing.

I would most definitely be from Minas Tirith seeing as it is much easier to defend, plus I don’t have to travel anywhere to get there. But I would go exploring ME just to find the best beer and take barrels of it back to Minas Tirith to sell to the pub masters.

I couldn’t choose just one place, I have reasons to be from a few.
Gondor- If I ma correct in my thinking] They hav massive libraries of books, and it’s within a short distance from the sea [south]
Rohan- Rolling plains and awesome scenery, need I say more?
Imladris- Lots ’n lots of trees. And it’s near the [Misty] mountains.

If i had to pick a location it would be Rohan. The reson i picked rohan is because i wpuld wnt to be a rider of rohan when i grew up. Because rohan had defeted teh orcs many times before any one else. Also the Riders of Rohan are a strong army of Calvery. Rohan also has helped out in the cause of driving out the orcs of the lands of men and hobbits and drwavers and elves and wizards and many more. so that is why i want to be a rider of Rohan!!

This is a great topic!  I think I would like to live in the Village of Bree in Breeland.  One can find Rangers, Northern Men, Hobbits, Dwarves and possibly even Elven Travellers all at once.  The former lands of Arnor/Arthedain, with the Shire, Old Forest, the Barrowdowns and Rivendell all within one month of travel sounds pretty cool.  In the 4th Age I would like to live at Annuminas Restored by Lake Evendim which has always captured my imagination.  I love rebuilt capitals of Great Empires.

If I could be from anywhere in Middle-Earth I think I would choose to be from Minas Ithil and the Tower of the Moon. The main reason I would like to be from Ithil is because it is on the edge of Mordor and yet in its prime would welcome friendly people. It was also a city that was almost as beautiful as Minas Tirith in its prime before it became Minas Morgul, home of the Nazgul.

Actually, I think I would want to live in Mirkwood.  Even though I’m in the Riddermark on this site, my love lies ultimately with the Elves of Mirkwood, and even with all the perils there from Sauron’s dwelling there, I would love it.  It would be living with and being an Elf, coupled with the danger that I’d love to live around.  Something of an adventurous streak in me I guess.

Hi everyone I’m new here. This is my first post. Anyway, I would probably live in either Minas Tirith or Thranduil’s halls. I really like the idea of being an elf, and doing archery and all, but i really like the strength and valor of men. Now that I think about it, I’d have more chance of being a warrior in Mirkwood than in MInas Tirith (Girl). Oh well. if anybody feels like meeting me, yeah. I have basically no idea how to work this site.

Dolgon Malcor. Turgon did not have a son and thus you could not be him. I realise you are only exercising your imagination and I would not seek to dissuade you from such an endeavour. However, if in Tolkien’s world there is no son of Turgon, that is where the issue ends. You cannot imagine being someone in ME that we are expressly told does not exist. When we are asked to imagine ourselves in ME or to create our own character we must essentially, and by definition, create an identity that is non-canonic so that we don’t abjectly infringe upon the works of the master in any meaningful way. To do so would be too bold.

Celebrimbor. I understand completely, and I am sorry that it has been a problem. I will change my character instantly, but I do have one question. Is there any way possible that I can be related to Turgon? Cause I am pretty much obsessed with him and Gondolin at this point in time.
Celebrimbor 03/Aug/2006 at 12:49 PM
Chieftain of the Mark Points: 8047 Posts: 4093 Joined: 26/Jan/2005
Dolgon Malcor. I’m afraid there is no way you could say that you are related to Turgon as we are fully aware of his line of descent. If one were to say they were related to Turgon they would essentially be saying that they were one of the most significant and royal Elves in the history of ME which would be too ambitious. Furthermore there is no gap where one might fit their supposed character into his bloodline. What you could alternatively do is say that you are a descendant of one of the few Elves of Gondolin that escaped its downfall. This would not make you a relative of Turgon’s, nor would it make you an Elf of Gondolin, but it would mean you are a descendent of the Elves of Gondolin. I’m afraid this is about as close as you could get, in good conscience and within plaza guidelines. I know it might seem like a step down but what you have to remember is one must be very careful when placing their character within the world Tolkien created. Being a descendent of a Gondolin Elf is still pretty impressive in the grand scheme of things as there were very few Noldorin Elves around in the Third Age.

Even though I would be a Dwarf in ME, I think I would love to live in the Shire. I’d have a nice hobbit hole and ply my trade as a jeweler from it. I would have a bit of a flower garden and a well stocked larder for company. Since my Hobbit hole would be large, I would definitely have my own library

Is there anywhere else BUT the Shire?  Lovely cozy holes - without worms and such, advanced enough to have many of the mod cons - clocks, lawyers, a real post, bills, money...and all the singing, laughing, good food and friends that one could hope to bless ones days with.

geordie - once you read through the libraries in MT - come on along to the Great Smial-  where hobbits collected a whole BUNCH of that writing stuff...even stuff that the Big Folk never saw.  Course, mind your head...

"There’s something of everything here, if you understand me: the Shire and the Golden Wood and Gondor and kings’ houses and inns and meadows and mountains all mixed." -ROTK

Thus spake Samwise Gamgee when he was describing Imladris.  That was another reason I chose my beloved Rivendell; so many kingdoms with so many nice things to love about them, all together.  That passage was one of the things that helped me to pick my kingdom before I joined the Plaza.  Why not have it all?  My other possible choices were Lothlorien, Gondor, and Rohan, in that order.

Tough question.  Let’s see - a Dwarf, of course (don’t want to live forever but definitely long enough to lay in a good store of experiences) - pre-KD period and probably in Belegost (or Nogrod even - not much difference in choice for me).  ME isn’t that crowded yet, decent location to visit either Beleriand or explore Eriador or even visit Gundabad and relations with the Elves hadn’t deteriorated yet.  Oh, 1 more good reason - no horses (smelly buggers!)

What can beat the plains of Rohan ? I simply love to be out in the open,walking in the hils or mountains or when I get a chance riding a horse.Parts of Ireland could easily fit in to the description of the Riddermark,apart from this there are the great traditions of the Rohirrim.I wouldn’t say no to a night in the pub with a good meal and a few drinks,most of the Irish will agree with me.

I Would Like To Be From  Mirkwood Or Ithilien Here Are The Reasons

-Mirkwood-In the Silmarillion, the highlands of Dorthonion eventually fell under Morgoth’s spell, and was renamed to Taur-ne-faur ("Forest under Deadly Nightshade") in Sindarin, a name which Tolkien translated as Mirkwood in english

Oddly enough, though I am Elven, I should love to be a Hobbit of the Shire. I would love to be living the nice quiet life. Simple days of peace and not living forever sounds most attractive to me. Being Elven and living in beautiful Imladris would be wonderfull but its all dreams isant it! I am closer to a hobbit in reality...I think!

Being the elf lover that i am i would definitely live in rivendell or lothlorien. but in the end i would have to choose to reside in the golden wood because it seems to be closer and more in touch with the things more natural and majestic. one place i would always love. a woodland area with a serene fall-like setting

As broken record I am, eastern Rhovanion.  I have always loved the wide open space of the plains.  But why Rhovanion instead of the plains of Rohan?  Because Rhovanion is a wide land still, it has town, villages, but it seems more a frontier than anything else.  Living on the edge of civilization, pushing the boundries of what’s known, what’s been done is attractive to me.  Also living on a frontier puts conduct more on what’s right for you, what’s decent, and what you can defend for yourself and yours.

Lothlorien is my favorite place  because it is very beautiful and I would like to be a graceful elf! but I’m not too sure if it would be right for me. I have much of the personailty (and height ,heh) of a hobbit in which I’m a very lazy and comfort loving but I would not like it there because it is slightly isolated because not many people know what a hobbit is! Thing seem sort of ’slow’ in the shire, as in there is not always much happening. Maybe Rohan, though, I would love to be in the rohhirm! I love that army but you would probably would smell like horse crap! Gondor is nice too! I don’t know! I guess it doesn’t matter where I live (except mordor!) as long as I live in Middle Earth!

I would choose to live in the western White Mountains, because even though I’ve never been to the mountains I’ve always wanted to go, and pictures of them fascinate me.  Why not the Misty Mountains?  Too dangerous...wargs and goblins aren’t my thing.  Not that the White Mountains aren’t dangerous, it’s just never said that there’s colonies of wolves and goblins in them.  And the western prt because that would put me relatively close to the sea, which I love as well.

It would be a hard decision for me, but I would want to live in Rohan.  I think that I would want to live just outside of Edoras, still a short distance, but have a farm on the widespread plains.  It would be beautiful and calm, and be the perfect place for me.

A hobbit fom the shire i would have to be. Very simply because we are lazy, live in comfortable holes in the ground, have 6/8 meals per day and enjoy smoking, eating and drinking.  Hobbits are like me in real life except that they have fancy clothes and are generally kind people.     CURSE THOSE HOBBITS

Hm...very interesting...well, i personally think that we would all be hobbits. Tolkien did say that modern humans are closest to hobbits in their manerisms...

but if i got a choice, I would be Rivendell elf. Elves are awesome as they are, but the Galadhrim elves were just too stuck up for my taste, and wood elves were too wander-ey...no set place to live...ugh...

I’d be a Maia Istar-in-training, and not really come from anywhere.  I’d like to stay in Lorien or Rivendell (probably the latter because of less trees for spiders and bugs to be in, as much as I love Lothlorien), but I could just as easily become an evil little booger and reside in Mordor. ^^

What race would I be of? Well, if I was from Middle-Earth, I would most likely be of the race of Men and live in Gondor.

What would I be? Well, probably a soldier of The Citdal Guard of Minas Tirith like the character ,out of the video-game "The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age", Berethor. ( And I reconmend that video-game to everyone if they love Middle-earth.)

What makes me think that? Well, just by my characteristics and I love to fight for the protection of anything held in high value to me.

hmm well I can see why you aren’t very sure, it’s a hard one to decide on. I’m a very nomadic person who fins it hard to settle so I wouldn’t want to be a prominent member of a city or something. Considering that it would probably suite me better to be an elf or at least of the free peoples but I’m a dark person so I’d be more drawn to Mordor. An Assassin for Mordor would suite me nicely.

I liked the game Lord of the Rings: The Third Age because it allows you to run around some of Minas Tirith. It makes yoou feel like your there.

Well, as I stated in another thread, the race I resemble most is the Dundedain. So, as a ranger, I would agree with all of you that I couldn’t just live in one place. If I could visit ME, I’d have to go everywhere! And that’d be just fitting for a ranger. My most permanent residence would have to be near the Weatherhills. I guess I could gaurd the East Road, or maybe go as south as Eregion to keep watch over those pesky Dunlendings.

Well, obviously my first choice would be living with the Valar in heavenly bliss in the Undying Lands, but since that’s probably not a realistic option, I would settle for Rivendell or Lothlorien, mainly because of the safety/secrecy of those two places. And of the two, I would probably choose Lothlorien because of the fact that it is a unique and beautiful forested place where I could live on a flet and where I could feel safe because the borders of the woods are so easily guarded. Besides, I’ve always been somewhat attracted to the idea of being an archer who can move around stealthily like a phantom or somethin’.

I would live in the Shire, but not Hobbiton. Some place like Buckland or Longcleeve. I would live there because it’s so beautiful and so peaceful. You could relax by the river or pond, work in a garden, dance in the fields....it’s like a mini paradise. And Hobbits are the funnest, sweetest race of people.

If I couldn’t live in the Shire I would live in Lothlorien with the Elves. It’s a beautiful place, not as relaxed and homely as the Shire, but beautiful none the less.

I would be one of Tolkien’s fantastic elves and live in the beautiful Lothlorien. It is magical to me in the books and I adore Tolkien’s elves. I think it would be peaceful and tranquil... not to mention comfortable and pretty safe! Of course I’d be tempted to travel to the White City to catch a glimpse of that hunky Aragorn!

But as for place of origin I would like to call Rohan my homeland. Horses and plains fit me to the brim but I would prefer to go on a never-ending quest for knowledge

I would totally live in Rivendell, because as Sam says, there is something there of anywhere else you could visit (except the sea).  It’s perfect whether you want food, music, sleep, or just seeing elves.  What more could you want?

If I lived in Middle Earth, I would live in the Golden Wood. Lothlorien is a beautiful, peaceful place. While Lady Galadriel wields Nenya, the wood flourishes and all is well.

Elves are an amazing race, strong and powerful, yet graceful and lithe. I am proud to consider myself one of the Elder Undying Children of Illuvatar, living in the glorious land of Lorien.

I’d love to live in Lothlorien because it’s so beautiful and peaceful. Rohan would be a good choice too as I like horses and the feeling of freedom that Rohan gives. Or the Shire... Um, i don’t know. It would be cool to have a nice hobbit house and a garden in front of it. Ok, I’d prefer to live in lothlorien, my second choice would be the Shire and third Rohan. I’m an elf though so i guess i’d fit in Lothlorien best.

Oddly enough, I’d like to live in Edoras with the Rohirrim.  Ride around with the Cavalry eliminating small bands of orcs and whatnot.  Explore the glittering caves in helms deep, so I could talk to the dwarves too.  Also,  ride over Isengard which isn’t too far away and visit the beautiful garden there kept by the ents.  Learn some things from them if I had the time to wait for a while when they were talking.  I’d also have to visit the elves sometime when I had the chance.  Hobbits too.

I would live in a small cottage in Rohan somewhere, a bit removed from everyone, and I would ride my horse all over Middle-Earth, exploring everywhere that I could. Perhaps I would travel to the East because I don’t remember much of it being mentioned in the LOTR books.

I think that I would like to travel a lot. Perhaps not because of war reasons, but in order to see a lot of friends and make friends from a lot of different places. Also to be able to see a lot of places, I think that seeing a variety of places is the best way. But if I had to choose one place to be from, I think that I would have to choose Imladris.

I have always fancied Minas Morgul. Quiet location, right on the border of Ithilien, not too far from busy Gindor if one needs to go shopping and not too far from Mordor if one needs to… well… destroy some rings for instance.

Also what a scenery! Eerie light of the Morgul Tower, gleaming road amidst the fields of gorgeous white flowers on the banks of Morgulduin, mountain peaks around. I would love it!

Thanks for starting this thread. After putting so much time into creating a character for ME it is nice to be able to actually talk about where they would really live in ME. For example, Karis comes from the green hills and vales of Pinnath Gelin in Western Gondor in the Doriath region.  Wandering between the Ered Nimrais and the Druwaith Laur by the river Leenui. However much I like cities and would defend Minas Tirith to my last breath, the country appeals more to my way of life. I know that for Gondor this area is considered the "frontier" in many ways as well as semi-hicksville, but that would pose many challenges and adventures very different than those found near the capital.
Second choice would be in the north of Arnor among the hills of Evendim, third in the green hills around Osgiliath in Ithilien.
Hul Gondor!

If Middle Earth was real I would love to live in Minas Tirith the glorious city of Kings.I think it would be wonderfull to leave under the White Tower,near the Citadel and the so rich in information that you can find anything you want to find.

If I couldn’t live in Minas Tirith I suppoze I would live in Hobbiton and have a peaceful life knowing that I am protected by the Dunedan.

Small question for all those who prefer Mordor as a place to live: Do you think that you would manage to live there a long time or you will do it for just a small period of time? I don’t think that any creature, even orcs, can’t live there for a large period.

I think that Gondor would be the place where I would want to be from. Minas Tirith. I read some others post and they said that they would not want to be from Gondor becouse of the fighting all the time. But I think that it would be awsome. The Gondorians were always fighting the Shadow of Mordor. They would never bend knee to the Shadow that was every there. In the Return of the King is says something that Souron hates Gondor the most becouse they were always in the way of his war. I’m proud to be a Gondorian.

I would definitely live in Rohan, though not in a big place like Meduseld.  I would live in one place so I could have a garden, but I would definitely travel a lot.  Why live in a big open place unless you can ride your horse on a regular basis, with your hair blowing in the wind and all the fresh air and freedom.  If I were male, I would be part of the cavalry of course, but being female I would probably find a way to attach myself as a cook or healer or something so I could tag along... in the back of the line

I am right now live in a place that has many levels, like Minas Tirith, and the economy was once based on the sea by fishing and travelling, now it is based on the labour of trades and halls of knowledge. I have great respect for Gondor,  but my heart lies in Rohan.

If I could live in Middle-Earth and choose my race and place I would be an elf, Noldorin elf from Gondolin. Gondolin was always my favourite place in ME. Beautiful, powerful, mysterious and isolated from the rest of the world.

I like to look at them and feel the bark as I run my hands over them though, don’t necessarily want to be one! So its Rivendel for me, and of course I would be an elf. I’d be tall for once! woohoo!

If I did not have to travell I would live in Erebor or in Dale and help with the construction of armor, Weapons and toys.

Since I am a hobbit, I would live near the Shire, of course. But I am also a water-loving hobbit, so I would rather live close to the Sea. In that case, I would settle myself as a neighbor of Elanor and Fastred at the Tower Hills, and gaze at the Sea every day. But I would like to visit Ithilien once in a while, even if it’s so far away!!

If i can choose I would live  in ithilian because I like  Ithilians woods and that there are so many animals and that there are many hiden places like that who is in the waterfall.

Else I would live in Lothlorie because it will be briliant to sit on the ground and all around you have mellorns and beautiful singers. And there else one thing because I want to live in Lothlorien because there is magic of Galadrial and I would want to now how is to live there and don’t now how long you are there

I would have to go with Khazad Dum near the East or West gate, as they have rivers near them. Probbally the Khazad-zaram river near the east gate because then It would be more practical to move from one place to another. Anyways I think the dwarves are well protected and it would be fun to live in a world of such divine crafting and smithing. The halls would certainly be very beautifull. Im certain the land surrounding would certainly be very nice as well. I could certainly get accustomed to such a great kingdom such as that. Anyways thanks for listening to my opinion.

I would be from no where. I think it would be cool to just be a ranger or something with no real birth-place. Kind of like one on the last remaining Numenorians. I would visit everywhere and become a part of every community so I could get the best of all the cultures.

Another place I would’ve liked to live in would probably be Fangorn. I love nature and, naturally, there are many many forests in Fangorn. Though the Shire would be my first choice, I would strongly consider Fangorn. Minas Tirith would be on my list too...I don’t really have a reason, it’s just always interested me.

I’d say Mordor. Nothing beats the rumbling ground and piercing screams of pain every now and then

I think I amw with Radagast Rasta, in that I would like to be a wanderer, having no permanent home but welcome wherever I am.

However if we are allowed to choose both time and place I would like to be in Beleriand at the height of the powers of the Noldor in Exile. Watching the forging of new kingdoms and new alliances and listening to the singing of Maglor or Daeron of Doriath.

Well, I would have to say that I would be happy enough ust living in Middle-Earth. Of course, the whole point of this question is where in Middle-Earth.

Well, that’s a tough question. I would honestly have to choose Rivendell or Lorien and be an elf. I can’t honestly tell you if I will be excited to be able to live forever, because I’ve never felt it. And if I were an elf, that’s all that I would know(as the elves are, I’d probably be jealous of the ones who can die). But, I’d be an elf, spend my life going on adventures throughout all of Middle-Earth, and be happy! I like nature and excitement, so I think that’d be best for me.
