Felix Sotomayor's Picture

Sotomayor's Minas Tirith does not resemble Tolkien's description of the capital of Gondor. If we're going to use the image, it will have to be with the First Age fortress of Minas Tirith in Beleriand, which guarded the Pass of Sirion. I've moved the image there.

Sounds good, your right it doesn't resemble Minas Tirith in Gondor, are we positive it is supposed to be the Minas Tirith in Beleriand though? If it's really just a poorly created version of Minas Tirith in Gondor we can remove it all together. --Hyarion 18:24, 20 April 2006 (EDT)
