    ~Welcome to Middle-Land
    What is a land-comm? A land comm is an interactive challenge community in which players are divided into teams and compete for points. Challenges can be anything from luck to graphics to writing to puzzles to logic-based challenges. At the end of the each round the team with the most points wins.
    What fandoms are included here? This landcomm centers around the world of J.R.R. Tolkien. Mainly with The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit but other works are welcome. [Signing Up] [The Contract]

Oh how that cartoon strikes a chord! It does feel very like that, these days. Actually my husband refuses to accept anything published since The Professor's death as canon - not even The Silmarillion.
