User talk:Protospace/Towards a Canonical Geography of Arda

Hi Proto. I just saw your commentary on my Obscure Locations page. Yes it would be nice to collaborate, although lately I am not fine-combing the texts.

I think a good source for what you are doing would be Robert Foster's Guide. Despite its inaccuracies and outdatedness, it has some cosmological entries whose sources are only the most "canonical" texts, which often contradict the non-canonical Ambarkanta-based cosmology seen in Fonstad.

One commentary: I don't think that the existence of the Iron Hills in the FA disproves the theory that they were part of the Iron Mountains. Sage 08:58, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
