earendil: I might thought that you use a lot of punctuation in your posts. Also Greenholm has 180 points and he just arrived. He is not so experienced so take it easy.

i disagree, the thick and lush wildlife of Ithilien would tempt me most probably. Also the green fields and hills of the Shire would be a peaceful and meryy place to live. Rivendell also has its great points. Lothlorien was a clam and peaceful place, very attractive in its ways and Minas tirith would provide an awesome view. Of course staring at thw white stone may provoke migrains.

Rohan is quite beautiful if you love endless grassy expanses with lots of horses, though it does see its dangers, what with Orc and Dunlending invasions.  Personally, though, I prefer a little mix of everthing, with some grass and some trees, some hills and some flat lands, so I’ll take Rivendell and the surrounding area...and maybe Ithilien too.

Yes, it is beautiful but I don’t like to wander around and could be killed any second by orcs. I would rather stay and live in a fortress or tower or haven where I am safe.

Durin of Moria:Rohan is not like that anymore!When Saruman was defeated the remaining Orcs and Uruks were full of fear I suppose, like when Sauron was defeated his Orcs fled, and they didn’t have the courage to do anything to the people of Rohan because everyone fled to save his own skin so they were separated from each other.They couldn’t harm anyone even if they had the courage to do so.

Yes Rohan is great. I like to ride horses around its endless felids, nothing can compare to the beauty of the Elven relams. The great majisty and glory of Rivendell. Or the vast beauty and depth of mirkwood or Lothlorien.

I don’t think that Rohan would be the place in which I would like to live, even if without any orcs. Rohas has only imense fields covered with grass. But where are the woods? I wouldn’t like a place without any woods. Yet the thing that will attract me would be the superbe horses in the land. The thought of living in a fortress well defended makes me thing of living in a cage.

Legolas-Don’t forget that Rohan is fairly close to both Fangorn and Lothlorien, so that solves the problem of forests.

Personally, I do not think I would like to live in Mirkwood full-time.  I like forests, but such a large and dark one would get on my nerves after a while, not to mention the danger of the giant spiders.
I might also like to visit the valley of the Withywindle, out of curiosity.  There’s the threat of Old Man Willow, but you can call for good old Tom Bombadil, and then spend some time at his house, which would be great.

I don’t think I could live in the dark Fangorn but Lothlorien would be great. I also considered Lorien the best place for living after Imladris. Also Lorien is in a way protected of the evil, not like Fangorn that has evil beeings in it. In lorien the galadrim and Galadriel keep the evil away.

Legolas-Evil beings in Fangorn?  Where was that?  The only one I can think of would be Saruman prowling around there in disguise, but he didn’t live there.  Fangorn is a strange place, and perhaps slightly formidable, but the Ents protect it.  Mirkwood, though, is a different story, what with the unwholesomeness of the place and the animals in it, especially the spiders.

Vella: Talking about one thing and thinking at another. I didn’t ment Fangorn though. I was thinking at the place were Tom Bombadil lived but I wrote Fangorn. Thanks for telling me. I wouldn’t have observed that before. But Lorien is still great.

By Tolkien descriptions, I’d say that Rohan might be the most beautiful place in Middle-Earth. Well, at least for me. The shire seems to be a very incredible place to live as well.

I’m sure that, maybe apart from Mordor, we would be able to find beautiful and incredible places to live in middle-earth.

I’m amused by the fact no Riders have posted yet.. and Mordor has its own dark anti-beauty. As the Marquis de Sade says, that which is horrific leaves more of an impression on our minds.

Legolas-Okay, gotcha there!  The barrow-wights would not be any treat to face, for would the Old Forest, what with Old Man Willow and the fact that he’s commanding most of the trees in the forest to channel trespassers straight to him, but there’s always good old Tom Bombadil himself to set things right!

Just a note Jazzabella. When you are posting in the Lore Fora you have to somehow contribute to the discussion that is being discussed. And you can switch Kingdoms for 50 points.

Guys, please just a note: if you’re going to post, please add why you think the way you do, with evidence and viewpoints that can make the discussion worthwhile. In this case, the thread has not achieved it from its opening post to its most recent, so I am closing the thread.
